The vegetable compartment in the refrigerator is ideal for storing large packages.

But that's not what it is intended for.

How to use it properly.

When all the shelves in the refrigerator * are full, the rest of the food usually

ends up

in the

vegetable drawer

.

Everyone should be

aware of the

fact that this method of use is incorrect because of the term

“vegetable compartment”

.

And so much is anticipated:

Vegetables

should actually be

stored there.

And why should so many do it wrong now?

In fact, there is a difference as to which

vegetables or fruits are

better placed in which compartment.

We reveal what you have to consider.

Vegetable compartment in the refrigerator: which vegetables go in which compartment?

Each refrigerator has a completely different structure.

Some have two vegetable compartments, others only one and still others have a small switch that controls the ventilation of the compartment.

In all cases it is guaranteed that your fruits and vegetables get

enough moisture

, reveals the portal Martha Stewart among others.

Depending on how damp or dry the compartment is,

the food will stay fresh longer

.

Accordingly, you should consider the following when storing food:

Storing fruits and vegetables if your refrigerator has a switch

Have you ever wondered what the use of the switch in your refrigerator is for?

Here comes the answer: You can use it to control

the ventilation of your vegetable drawer

.

As soon as, for example, you turn off the fan completely, more moisture forms in the compartment.

Conversely, ventilation is better and the humidity level drops.

How you set the switch should therefore depend on the food that is in the compartment.

Higher humidity is suitable, for example, for vegetables that generally dry out quickly, such as

asparagus

,

cabbage

or

green vegetables

.

Fruit, on the other hand, requires significantly less moisture in most cases.

Storing fruits and vegetables when your refrigerator doesn't have a switch

So it's perfect for vegetables that

dry out quickly
