I love kitchen gadgets, but I'm reaching the limit of my drawer space. Has anyone tried the containers being sold to keep herbs or parsley fresh? I read a recommendation for them, but when I went to Sur La Table, they were sold out, so I didn't see what they look like. Later on, I got the impression that they weren't much different from a sealed jar with water. I saw one a large one at The Sharper Image (for parsley) but would rather try again at Sur La Table if they're worth it.
Herbs are pretty expensive; I haven't had much luck growing my own and wonder if this new storage method is worth trying.
