Has anyone seen one of these in their local travels?

    Yeah I bought this. Herbs are fresh going on 4 weeks! Looks great and fits perfectly in the fridge. I've tried the jar method but it only stayed fresh a little over 2 weeks. Then I put water in it which help keep it longer but the water gets kind of nasty and there's no good way of draining it. The herb savor has a spout that allows you to empty and refill the water really easily. I LOVE it! Unless you can't afford it, I would definitely recommend this

      Would it hold more than one bunch of herbs?

        Depends I guess on how big the bunch of herbs are. The design seems to be a compromise between fridge space and herb space. I find it to be a good size to fit enough herbs as I need for 3 weeks (about 1 bunch). I'm thinking about buying one more for extra storage.

      I SAW IT IN THEIR STORE, BUT I DON'T THINK THAT I WOULD WASTE MY MONEY ON IT.

        No need to spend your $$.

        Put your herbs in a glass jar -- an old mayo jar, a canning jar, anything glass -- and they will last — and last. A tip I learned at Chowhound & one of the best ever. Also works for fruit & vegs.

            do you put water in the bottom of the glass jar?
