Make kitchen items last longer

Posted: Updated:

Keeping your kitchen stocked is not cheap; so your best bet is to make sure what you have now lasts as long as possible.

Consumer Reports suggests...

  • Keeping delicate foods, like lettuce and herbs, away from the vents in the fridge or else they may freeze.
  • Do not use cooking spray on non-stick pans. Build up can happen which will cause food to stick.
  • Keep your freezer filled, even if it is with frozen bottled water. If you do not do this, the compressor will continue to cycle, using more energy than necessary.
  • Because the refrigerator door is the warmest area of the fridge, do not store your milk there.
