Fruit and vegetable bins and humidity control lid

  • The unique humidity control lid functions to seal the bins and provide a humid microclimate to extend the storage times of fruit and vegetables.
  • During times of high humidity the lid also functions to prevent condensation from dripping onto the fruit and vegetable by retaining this moisture in the lid’s specially designed grooves.

Fruit and vegetable bins and humidity slide

  • Each fruit and vegetable bin has an adjustable humidity slide which enables you to choose a fruit or vegetable setting depending on your storage needs.
  • If there is too much water in the bins (due to high humidity), the control can be adjusted towards the setting with fewer drips (fruit setting, ) and/or the water can be wiped dry when required.
  • Remember a small amount of water in the bins is beneficial for fruit and vegetable storage.
  • When storing vegetables; which are ethylene sensitive produce such as lettuce, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, carrots. We recommend using the vegetable setting,.
  • When storing fruits which are generally high ethylene producers; such as citrus fruits, stone fruits and some tropical fruits. We recommend using the fruit setting, .
  • When storing a combination of fruit and vegetable, we recommend adjusting the humidity slide to the centre.
  • Ideally store whole fruits and vegetables without external packaging, if possible, and in separate bins. Separating fruit and vegetables will prevent ethylene-sensitive produce from ripening too quickly, and help extend their storage life.
