Lakeland Small Fridge Store 2.5L

Product number: 26727

Sick of wrinkly peppers and wilted salad leaves? With a little bit of help from this Lakeland Small Fridge Store, your fresh fruit and veg will never have to get to that stage. Designed to help keep food fresher for longer, you’ll forget what it feels like to throw past-its-best food in the bin (and you might even save a bit of money).

Drains and collects excess water

The white inner basket is perforated so any excess water will drip through it, draining your food, helping to keep it fresh and preventing any unwanted sogginess – and there’ll be no puddles on your fridge shelves either, as the water will be caught by the solid, transparent outer basket.

Acts as a colander and water reservoir

The inner basket lifts straight out of the outer basket and can serve as a colander, so you can use it to rinse your food before cooking or serving. The vents in the top of the lid can be opened and closed to allow more airflow, further ensuring the freshness of your food. And if you pour a little water into the bottom of the transparent outer basket, it acts as a reservoir to help prevent herbs and salad from drying out prematurely.

Larger size also available.

BPA-free.

Please note: hand wash only.

"Lakeland Small Fridge Store"

star star star star_border star_border

Am I doing something wrong? I bought this with a plan. Salad would be cheaper, fresher and last a lot longerer. My fresh salad lasted 2 days before all the leaves were brown and the skies were grey. I also have a large OXO salad saver, which works well but takes up too much space.This item just about fits between bottom and first shelf. Admittedly, no air flow. I also didn't have the vents open, as didn't want other foods to effect. Do I need to add water to the outer container? I do dry the leaves in either colander or spinner. I use just leaves, no juicy veg until serving.

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear this didn't work as well as expected. We've now added a handy guide to the website to give you an idea of whether water needs to be in the container or if the vents need to be open. If you're not fully satisfied with the item, you can return this back to the store along with your receipt for a full refund.

"Baskets are not dishwasher proof, no symbols anywhere."

star star star star_border star_border

This review is for an older version of this product

Wish I had read the previous reviews sooner, would have discovered that these cannot be put in a dishwasher. First time I tried recently, disaster!! Not a single symbol anywhere (although I thoroughly checked the tubs) to say don't put in a dishwasher and I no longer had any packaging to check. Assumed it was OK, big mistake!! Both of the clear tubs have significantly warped to a point that I can no longer fit the lids on and is really tight for the inner baskets too. Extremely annoyed, who these days do not put symbols on their products for safe usage? Lakeland need to address this issue.

support_agent A note from the team

We'd always advise "dishwasher safe" or "hand wash only" on the packaging, but this wouldn't be necessarily be moulded onto the product.

"Not dishwasher proof"

star star star star_border star_border

Washed item in dishwasher became completely distorted and unusable. Could not find it marked on product that it was not dishwasher proof. Would not purchase again.

support_agent A note from the team

Thank you for placing your review on the Lakeland Small Fridge Store 2.5L. Just a note. As this item can't be washed in the dishwasher. We'd always recommend washing by hand. We've sent you an email to help you further.

"Just ok"

star star star star_border star_border

Other products online claim similar results and have descriptions which mention that the vents would be open, closed or half- opened depending on the fruit or veg being stored. I thought Lakeland would be more trustworthy and so bought this item. I’m disappointed to find no instructions on the packaging on how to have the vents on this product. The online description mentions open vents keep food fresh but if that’s the case why can they slide open and shut? Why not just have ventilation permanently? I’ve had mixed results with the food stored and will be switching to rival products

support_agent A note from the team

It is because not all food would require the vents to be open but instead for the water in the base to keep the goods fresh. This is because some fruits and vegetables like a moist environment and some don’t. if you buy something from us and you're not 100% satisfied, or it is faulty, you can return it for a refund or replacement for up to 3 years – just bring along your receipt or emailed order confirmation as proof of purchase.

"Lid NOT dishwasher proof"

star star star star_border star_border

I loved this item, until... I'd previously hand washed it, but then there was the day it needed to be washed, space in the dishwasher, and boom - useless, lid completely distorted. Like a previous reviewer said, surely everything (bar fine china or other really obviously non dishwasherable stuff) should be dishwasher proof? Or clearly marked on the product, so it is indelibly obvious for evermore. I'm sure it probably said on the packaging but that's long gone, and even if I'd remembered, I couldn't expect the rest of the family to remember! If you can sort this, I'd consider buying again.

We can confirm that this product is not dishwasher safe, but will make sure that your feedback is passed on.
