How to use the vegetable room well

Summer is a perishable season for food.

If you have prepared warm rice and side dishes for your family who are going to eat dinner, have you ever experienced that the smell had already begun to change by the time your family returned home? You might think it's exaggerated, but when the temperature rises in the summer, the ingredients get worse at an unthinkable speed in the cooler months of winter and autumn. That's why I want to be careful about how to keep the ingredients.

I bought it, but when I noticed it, I was shocked if it hurt. I will talk about the precautions for preserving vegetables that can be used not only in summer but also in spring, summer, autumn and winter, paying attention not only to keep them fresh but also to keep them fresh.

You can store vegetables without damaging them with just a little care. Do you think there is no problem if you put it in the vegetable room?


Can't I just put it in the vegetable room? 5 points that won't hurt

The refrigerator has a vegetable compartment that can be used to store vegetables. Even those who usually store vegetables separately may think that the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator comes into play in the summer. After purchasing vegetables, quickly put them in the vegetable room before they become soft. This may be the basis of vegetable preservation.

However, it is not OK if you pack it in the vegetable room anyway. If you don't know the characteristics of the vegetable room and vegetables, the vegetable room for storage may actually damage the vegetables.

There are some points when storing vegetables in the vegetable room. I want to get the hang of it and eat vegetables that are in good condition even in the summer. There are five points to consider when storing vegetables in a vegetable room that you can easily take care of.

-Overpacking is NG
-Use wrap for some vegetables
-Be careful when storing vegetables with strong odors
-Look closely at the humidity
-Some vegetables cannot be put in the vegetable room


These 5 points are the tips for storing vegetables in the vegetable room, which you can easily do from today. In turn, I'll explain in a little more detail.

Excessive packaging is NG by storing in the vegetable room! Make good use of rap

When you buy vegetables at a supermarket, many of them are wrapped in wraps or bags. Half-cut cabbage is a typical example, and most of them are neatly wrapped in bags or wraps. When you cut vegetables, the cut ends dry quickly, so it makes sense for the store to wrap them neatly.

So how do you store the half-cut cabbage after purchase in the vegetable compartment? I think there are many people who keep the packaging in the vegetable room.

Some people who store vegetables in the vegetable room put it in the packaging after purchase because "I don't like the smell of vegetables being transferred to the vegetable room" and "The vegetable room is likely to get dirty with vegetable juice". In addition, there are people who store it by wrapping it in plastic wrap or covering it with a plastic bag. Actually, this is NG.

In recent vegetable rooms, manufacturers have devised ways to keep vegetables fresh and preserve them deliciously. Excessive packaging negates the very meaning of the vegetable compartment. It is desirable to use the vegetable compartment without over-wrapping, and to simply wrap the wrap or store it in the vegetable compartment as it is. However, it is unavoidable to wrap vegetables that are likely to lose their shape a little tightly. Keep in mind that vegetables that do not lose their shape are basically stored as they are.


Do vegetables get scratched? Be careful of odors

I talked about the fact that vegetables are basically stored in the vegetable compartment as they are, and wrapping them in plastic wrap or putting them in a plastic bag negates the advantages of the vegetable compartment. However, there are some cases where it is necessary to wrap it tightly to some extent. "When there are a lot of vegetables" and "When storing vegetables with a strong odor".

Basically, vegetables are stored as they are, and it is important to wrap and store vegetables that lose their shape or cut vegetables to some extent to prevent them from losing their shape and drying. In other words, other vegetables can be put in as they are without packaging.

However, if you put it in as it is when the vegetable room is full, the vegetables will rub or collide with each other and the vegetables will be damaged. If there is a scratch, the soup will come out from the scratched part and the pain will be quicker, so if you do not have enough space in the vegetable room, you can dare to wrap the wrap thicker than usual to prevent the scratch. is. When storing vegetables with a strong odor such as garlic and green onions, it is important to wrap only the vegetables with a strong odor.

Freshness is important for vegetables, but I think each vegetable has its own flavor. If you put garlic in the vegetable room as it is, all the vegetables will be soaked with the smell of garlic, which is something you want to avoid when using vegetables for cooking.


What is the water status? Wetting of plastic bags and wraps can lead to damage

When wrapping vegetables in plastic wrap or a plastic bag and putting them in the vegetable compartment, you need to be careful about the condition inside the plastic wrap or plastic bag. Is the inside of the wrap wet due to water draining from the vegetables? Is there water in the plastic bag? Leaving it in this state will cause damage to the vegetables. When using wraps or plastic bags, pay close attention to the inside condition.

Also, what you need to know when storing vegetables in the vegetable room is that not all vegetables are suitable for the vegetable room. Many vegetables are said to last longer if they are stored without being placed in the vegetable room. For example, potatoes, burdock roots, onions, pumpkins, etc. These vegetables are suitable for storage in a well-ventilated shade without being placed in the vegetable compartment.

If you use potatoes, pumpkins, onions, etc. halfway, you should wrap them in the same way and store them in the vegetable room. If you want to store the whole vegetables, it is better not to use the vegetable room, but to create a good vegetable storage area in the kitchen and store it there.




The vegetable room has been evolving steadily in recent years. Manufacturers are devising ways to keep vegetables fresh. However, it is not okay to put it in the vegetable room anyway, and there are tips for preserving vegetables deliciously. By holding down the points and storing vegetables, you can make the best use of both vegetables and the vegetable room.

Are you over-wrapping your store by wrapping it in plastic wrap or a plastic bag?

Have you stuffed the vegetables tightly and scratched them?

Is the wrap wet with water from the vegetables?

Is it okay to take measures against odor transfer?

Basically, it's important to eat delicious vegetables.
