Advantages: Provides sufficient protection and has air holes
If you fancy a banana for lunch then you probably won't want it knocking around in your bag all day, and if you have a particularly large banana you won't get it in a tupperware tub. This space saving, protective case holds a banana in place to prevent damage.
This is just a solid plastic case really, nothing special about it. It's plastic is quite thick and it's difficult to dent it or bend it. I have never snapped or broken mine and it hasn't even faded, so the paint is good too.
It's very secure, I haven't had any problems with the case popping open. The banana doesn't have much room to move inside, smaller bananas can clunk about a little bit but not enough for them to get damaged.
It's easy to wash up too, just wiping around the inside is good enough to do. I'd recommend cleaning after every use especially if you've put the skin back in the case when you're finished. I use a scourer to get all round the guard and just a quick rub over the holes in case any sticky stuff gets in them.
I've never had any banana's destroyed while in here. I don't always take a banana with me for a packed lunch but when I do it does come out the other in end in the same condition it went in. It does protect well against simply knocks and bangs but because the air holes are small it also protects from sharper objects.
This is a well build guard, mine hasn't broken and in fact, is in very good condition. There is a lot of sticker residue where I had my name on the guard but there's no dents or scrapes on the plastic.
It has air holes to keep the banana fresh and these work well when keeping your banana in a bag all day long. They aren't for any other purpose really but they do keep it fresh, and if you've got a green banana that you're trying to ripen, these work particularly well for this too.
Overall this is a great way of protecting your banana, it's well made and well thought out. It fits my bananas well and I have never had it break. I highly recommend this for your packed lunch.
Summary: Accessorise your banana.
