Don't you hate it when you want to save your food, but you can't find any matching storage tops?
The Covermate Covers are supposed to cover your food in any container and keep it fresh.
But do they work? We tested them for you.
The Covermate stretches to fit food covers and comes in different sizes, small to extra-large.
We tried out the covers for months, testing them against storage containers to see if the covers would actually keep our food fresh.
We stored pasta, yogurt, onions and watermelon for more than a week using both methods.
Immediately, I was impressed with the Covermate because it stored the onions without leaving the fridge smelly.
For the pasta, yogurt and the half watermelon, the food looked and tasted exactly the same using both methods.
But there was a definite difference in the cut watermelon.
The watermelon stored in a container with a top was somewhat frozen.
But using the Covermate, the watermelon is totally fresh.
I can't tell you why, but the Covermate actually preserved the watermelon best.
The covers are also microwave and dishwasher safe so they're reusable.
I found a 10-pack of Covermate Covers online and at several stores including Target for less than 10 bucks, and after our many tests, I have to give it a thumbs up for being convenient and keeping the food fresh.
