What’s the Purpose of a Vegetable Crisper Drawer?

What_s-the-Purpose-of-a-Vegetable-Crisper-DrawerYou may not think much about the crisper or veggie drawers in your refrigerator, but they do serve a purpose – they control humidity and keep your produce from drying out.

The website “The Takeout,” spoke to representatives at Whirlpool and Samsung for the article about how crisper drawers keep your produce fresh.

“In the regular shelves of your fridge, humidity diffuses into the air or gets sucked into a fan,” according to an article on The Takeout.

In a crisper drawer, that humidity is contained, to keep your leafy greens and thin-skinned produce fresher for a longer period of time.

Cleaning Stovetop Grates

Keep your stovetop grates clean so they can heat properly. If your grates are especially dirty with stubborn, cooked-on stains, pour a 1/4 cup of ammonia into a large gallon size freezer bag along with the grates and seal the bag. Don’t worry about the ammonia covering the gate, you only want to expose the grates to fumes. Leave the bag in the sink overnight and in the morning, any residue should wipe off easily with a sponge.

Get your kitchen and appliances ready for the holidays

Although the holidays seem far away, now’s the time to make sure your appliances are operating properly before you start all your holiday baking, hosting and after-party cleaning.

ReadyfortheHolidays

Refrigerator

Replace broken refrigerator veggie or crisper drawers with new ones.

Replace taped up or broken refrigerator door bars and get back some of your storage space.

Change your refrigerator’s water filter.

Stove or Oven

Consult your owner’s manual to see the best way to clean your oven. Some ovens have a special coating on them that cannot be cleaned with detergents, soaps or commercial oven cleaners. Also, if you do use the self-cleaning feature, check whether you are to leave the racks inside your oven during the process. Some manufacturers recommend you remove them and clean them by hand.

Be sure to use the self-cleaning function a few weeks before guests arrive as sometimes the process leaves a lingering smell. Check your oven’s heating function after it has cooled down.

Use the self-cleaning feature after you have already heated the oven to cook. This will save energy and save you money.

Replace old or worn stove knobs with new ones for a better cooking experience.

Replace stained and dirty drip pans .

If your electric oven doesn’t heat, you may need to replace the bake element or the broil element (check both).

Check your oven’s temperature accuracy with an oven thermometer. Take four different readings and space them 20 minutes apart once your temperature hits its setting. Average the different readings together and divide by four for an average temperature.

Dishwasher

If your dishwasher is not cleaning like it should, check out our article on “How to clean your dishwasher” and use a dishwasher cleaner like Affresh to remove excess detergent residue and stains from inside your dishwasher.

Replace missing rack roller wheels.

Need a new dishwasher utensil or silverware basket? You can purchase a new one using your dishwasher model number to find your correct part.

Garbage disposal

Use a garbage disposal cleaner to clean and freshen your disposal. Or freeze ice cubes with a slice of lemon or citrus rinds and grind them in your disposal to deodorize. Flush with cold water.

Have cleaner water and ice without a built-in refrigerator water filter

Your top-freezer refrigerator might not have a built-in water filter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have filtered water going into your icemaker. By installing the GE SmartWater External Refrigerator Water Filter System (GXRLQ) you can have better –tasting and cleaner ice from your refrigerator icemaker.

The system works with most refrigerators and easily installs and is housed behind the refrigerator. Simply turn off your icemaker to attach the line to the filer’s manifold and turn your icemaker back on again. The filter will help reduce sediment, chlorine taste and odor, lead and cysts in the water leading to cleaner water and better-tasting ice.

After six month, replace the filter by turning off your icemaker, and twisting and removing the old filter to replace it with a new one (twist to lock into place).

There’s no need to turn off your water supply, as the manifold contains an auto-shut off as part of its design. Purchase just the replacement filter above , without having to purchase the entire system again at www.everyappliancepart.com.

If you need to install a line to your ice maker from your home’s water supply, you’ll need additional parts like this Copper Tube Refrigerator Water Supply Kit (8003RP) by Whirlpool.
