What’s the quickest way to ruin a Saturday set aside for some quality baking? Sticking a measuring cup into a fairly new bag of brown sugar only to pull out small chunks that are hard as rock. But your days of attempting to pulverize those pebbles are about to come to an end: Progressive’s brown sugar storage container is a simple solution that ensures your brown sugar always stays fresh and moist. Even better? It’s 57 percent off right now, costing just $6 (normally $13).

So what makes Progressive’s sugar container so special? It’s all in the terracotta disk, which you soak in water for a minimum of 15 minutes before inserting it into the container lid (for best results, it’s recommended that you dampen the disk every 30 days). Once the lid is snapped shut, the disk slowly releases moisture to keep the brown sugar soft and clump-free. And because the lid is air-tight, it also works as a barrier against any unwelcome invaders.

“I placed a new box of sugar in it about 2 weeks ago after opening it and finally had to open it to use again. The brown sugar was as soft as when I had first opened the box,” says one happy reviewer. Adds another: “This also works great to keep mice from getting into your sugar. I bought these when I had a mouse problem.”

Many reviewers also noted that besides using the container to keep a brand new two-pound bag of brown sugar fresh, they also used it to bring a “brick hard” bag back to the perfect consistency. Just like magic!

If you love to bake and are done dealing with fossilized rocks, Progressive’s brown sugar storage container is definitely worth adding to your arsenal. As one reviewer puts it: “I was tired of constantly throwing out rock hard brown sugar. With the addition of the disk, my sugar is now always soft.”

Now let’s get baking, shall we?
