Selling fast  - 3 left

The classic fruit bowl just got a major upgrade: This large ceramic wonder offers a dark and temperature-stable hiding spot for potatoes, onions, or not-quite-ripe fruits. And that shallow space in the lid? It’s saving a seat for things that need to breathe. And here’s a fun fact: The cork lid is inspired by an old trick where people would toss wine corks in their fruit bowls to absorb extra moisture and keep fruit flies away.

The upper level – made of cork serves as a fruit bowl. The lower level, made of ceramic acts as a mini pantry to store potatoes, onions, beets and other root vegetables, as well as fruit that is not ripe enough. The natural properties of the cork help preserve the fruit and keeps it fresh for longer and keeps pesky fruit flies at bay. The ceramic body keeps the light out, and together with the insulating properties of the cork lid, they help maintain a constant temperature, much like in an old school cellar.
