“The greatest trick the refrigerator manufacturers ever pulled…” (crisper drawer)

A refrigerator’s “crisper drawer” is designed to have a different level of humidity to keep fresh the fruits and vegetables stored there. Many people believe that the drawer doesn’t do much of anything.

“No one is really sure what a crisper drawer does. Just something a fridge is supposed to have” was posted on Twitter by CheesemonkeySF on October 16, 2012. “The ‘crisper’ drawer in my fridge does no such thing” was posted on Twitter by Bizarro Mark on May 30, 2014.

Wikipedia: Crisper drawer
A crisper drawer (also known as a crisper) is a compartment within a refrigerator designed to prolong the freshness of stored produce. Crisper drawers have a different level of humidity from the rest of the refrigerator, optimizing freshness in fruits and vegetables. Some can be adjusted to either prevent the loss of moisture from produce, or to allow ethylene gas produced by certain fruits to escape in order to prevent them from rotting quickly.

I don’t believe the humidity control on the crisper drawer does anything. I think they’re lying to our faces and laughing at us.
