Eddingtons BananaGuard


Eligible for International Delivery

Product information

Make bruised and battered bananas a thing of the past with the ingenious BananaGuard, designed by Canadian Emergency Room doctor David Algunik. The distress caused by the mashed mess his bananas turned into on his way to work led him to think that there must be a better mode of banana transportation.

Made from lightweight plastic, it will fit just about any size or shape of banana. Just pop it in, snap the BananaGuard shut and toss it (as carelessly as you like) into your lunchbox, bag or backpack. Even on a crowded tube your banana won’t get squashed.

Ventilation holes on the sides of the BananaGuard keep the contents fresh and deter premature ripening until you’re ready for your fruit fix. The indispensable Bananaguard is also dishwasher safe and comes, appropriately enough, in bright banana yellow.

Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant piece of kit. Very useful product. I use to daily to travel from Swindon to London. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Protects my banana Does what it claims - protects your banana from getting squashed in the bottom of your bag. Really does fit all bananas, of all sizes! Which is so clever it gets five stars from me. 08 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by banana guard Sturdy well made guard but it is quite big - could be made smaller for the average size fruit but if you have space in bag I would recommend 17 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good protection Protects my son's fruit well but is very big and does not fit inside his lunch bag. The guard has to be carried serpately which has stopped me from buying others. 04 November 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good idea - but hard to open I bought this for my daughter to take a banana to school everyday - without the usual consequences of a fruit in a school bag. It protects it well and seems to fit all shapes and sizes. The problem comes with opening it as it has various clip systems that are really awkward. I can't believe it needs to be this hard to design an easy opening latch. 14 October 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by It does the job It's a perfect way to protect a banana in my bag. The problem is fat or curvy ones don't fit in the case, so you need to buy slim bananas. 29 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best buy! We received two banana guards on our wedding list 4 years ago and have used them tirelessly since. They only don't fit very fat or very straight bananas but that has only happened a handful of times and you can always chop the banana down to size if too long. They are quite bulky to store so they live in our fruit bowl when not in use. So much better than mushy bruised bananas or worse - mushy banana all over the inside of your bag. 15 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by ueful product bought this for my son to take his banana to school in, he loves it! and his banana is nicely protected from bruising 19 January 2012
