This herb saver tool definitely helps preserve the freshness of the herbs for an extended time period. It is user-friendly, reasonably priced and has a sturdy design.

Though we require fresh herbs for multiple recipes, we rarely use an entire bunch at once. Fresh herbs are fragile and hence storing them the right way is crucial. So what’s the best solution to save up the remaining ones for later use, you ask? Enter : Herb storage containers. 

Herb storage containers also known as herb keepers are specifically designed to retain the freshness of these herbs for an extended time span. These herb containers hold the herb stem in water which in turn helps keep the stalk and leaves protected. 

We rigorously tested the herb savor pod in our test kitchen to check if it actually works or not. All the details about the product are covered in our Prepara Herb Savor Pod Review.

Herb Storage Container – Detailed Review


This herb savor pod is made of plastic material. The overall design of this storage container includes three parts – 

  • A cylindrical shape shell – This is where the herbs are placed. 
  • A clear plastic cover – This plastic cover is removable. It allows you to view the condition of the leaves placed inside. 
  • A small silicone lid at the back – This is the opening at the lower back of the tool wherein you are supposed to add the water. 

All in all, the built of this tool is pretty sturdy and highly durable. The water in this tool must be changed every 3 days. 

Price + Packaging 

This herb storage container comes in a sturdy box pack. The container inside the box is covered with plastic. We got this herb container from Amazon at a price of Rs 544 (this was the current price prevalent at that time). 

Our Testing Process

We added the following herbs to test the effectiveness of this tool : 

Day 1 (Basil) : On the 1st day, we added loose basil leaves in this herb saver tool. 

Day 2 (Coriander Leaves) : On day 2, we added coriander leaves together with the stalk and slight roots.

The Results 

The leaves we added on Day 1 were wilted on the next day. So clearly this did not work out for us. 

However, when we added coriander leaves, this herb savor pod turned out to be extremely useful. The coriander stalks remained fresh and healthy even on Day 4. An additional plus point was that we did not change the water and still the freshness of the leaves was retained.  

Though we did observe a few wilted leaves here and there. But majorly the coriander leaves had the same freshness. Thumbs up! 


It is crucial to understand the type of herb while storing them. There are essentially two kinds of herbs – tender herbs and hardy herbs. The tender herbs have soft stems and fragile leaves. Some popular herbs that fall in this category includes basil, parsley, mint and cilantro. Hardy herbs on the other hand have a woody stem. These includes rosemary, thyme and sage.

In practicality, this herb saver tool proves to be a convenient way to retain the freshness of tender herbs for a long time. 

However, do note that herbs without stalks and small roots might not last well here. These are best if consumed fresh.

One of the key ways to extend the freshness of herbs is to ensure that they get the right amount of moisture. The idea behind keeping them submerged in water is to allow the stem to absorb as much water while the leaves stay dry.

Storing them in herb containers will ensure that leaves remain hydrated and will not dry out if stored in the refrigerator. In addition, it will also limit the flow of oxygen to the leaves that will prevent any browning.
