The crisper drawer is a death sentence for any fruit or vegetable that enters it. We are given this false sense of security that this special drawer will keep all our fruits and vegetables perfectly crisp when in reality most of the time they’re forgotten and turn to slime.
The reason we repeatedly let fresh produce go bad in the crisper drawer is simply because we can’t see it. Out of sight, out of mind. The solution to this problem is pretty simple. Stop storing fresh produce in the crisper drawers.
Instead, store fruits and vegetables on an open shelf in the fridge closer to eye level. Any fresh produce that doesn’t need to be refrigerated can be stored on the kitchen counter or dining table. Then every time you walk into the kitchen or open the fridge, the fruits and vegetables act as a visual reminder to be eaten. Works like a charm!
Below are my favorite storage products to get your fresh fruits and veggies out of the cursed crisper drawer and out in the open!
