Getting the best results from your Crisper Carpet™

 

  1. Never put wet produce in refrigerator crisper drawers.
  2. Remove produce from plastic bags and place directly on Crisper Carpet™.
  3. Cut small slits in prepackaged food such lettuce or salad mixes, or remove them from plastic bags and place in vented containers.
  4. When using vented containers, for best results, rotate the container periodically to allow air to circulate around all sides.
  5. If possible, place fresh fruit and vegetables in separate crisper drawers. Fruits spoil faster than vegetables!
  6. Refrain from overstocking refrigerator crisper drawers.
  7. Refrain from washing berries until ready for consumption.
  8. Placing fruits and vegetables directly on Crisper Carpet™ will prevent bruising from occurring.
  9. Keep refrigerator clean.
  10. Make sure to fill out the replacement reminder magnet.

What Goes In and What Stays Out:

What Goes In (the refrigerator)

  1. Almost all vegetables and herbs.
  2. Apples, berries, cherries, grapes, kiwi, lemons, and oranges.
  3. Melons, nectarines, apricots, peaches, plums, and pears.

What Stays Out (stored in a cool place)

  1. Potatoes and Onions.
  2. Basil.
  3. Winter Squash (once cut transfer to refrigerator)
  4. Avocados (once ripened place in refrigerator). If you want to slow ripening, put in refrigerator first, remove a day or two prior to use and they will soften up.
  5. Tomatoes (once ripened place in refrigerator) If you want to slow ripening, follow the same directions as for avocados.
