8 Products to Transform Your Fridge and Make It Incredibly Practical
Keeping your fridge clean and tidy is a task many of us put off or ignore altogether. This is especially true considering that some people have as many as 2 refrigerators at home, sometimes even more. But believe us, a few handy organizers, combined with a creative approach, can dramatically change the state of things.
Thanks to the products in this selection from Bright Side, you will not have to spend ages rummaging through crowded shelves for the right products. You’ll be surprised at how the interior of your refrigerator can change in an instant with a little work.
1. The high-quality porcelain butter container comes with a beech wood lid. It can be used in the oven, microwave, refrigerator, and freezer. It’s resistant to chips, cracks, stains, scratches, and color fading.
4.3 stars out of 5
With this deep and large butter container, you won’t have to worry about butter sticking to the lid and making a mess. The butter container keeps your butter fresh and is easy to spread.
Promising review: Every now and then I receive an item from Amazon that is literally just perfect. I was almost put off buying it when someone said it was overpriced — I think some of these things are really quite relative, and if quality isn’t a huge issue, then there are cheaper choices. I wouldn’t say I’m very rich, but I’d say this butter dish is worth every penny. The minute it’s out of the box, you can instantly tell it’s a high-quality product. It has a nicely carved wooden lid, which can be used as a board and fits very nicely onto the dish. Enough space for a standard butter pack and then some, easy to hold, not slippery, neatly goes into the fridge. Nice ceramic dish-top quality, can’t fault it. @MISS S SHARMA

2. Herbs will stay fresh for up to 10 days longer in this herb keeper than in a store-bought package. It’s got 3 dividers for storing different types of herbs.
4.4 stars out of 5
The cut herb keeper is equipped with a sliding and locking lid that prevents herbs from being damaged in the refrigerator. It’s narrow enough to fit in the refrigerator door and also has a fill indicator on the front for easy filling.
Promising review: Fantastic purchase! I was skeptical when I ordered it, but after receiving it, I would definitely recommend it because it is made of a strong, high-quality plastic and appears to do the job of keeping herbs fresh. I was looking for just what I found, and I am very happy with my purchase. 5 stars for the item. I gave 5 stars for the item, but I gave 4 stars for the price, as it is a little bit pricey for a plastic container. But at the same time, it is quality, larger than expected, and definitely what is needed to keep herbs fresh! @Anna

3. Forgo plastic in favor of glass with this milk bottle holder. With its cool vintage design, it not only brings order to your fridge, but it is also a delight to the eye.
4.6 stars out of 5
This holder is made of sturdy steel, and the handle is made of beech. A damp sponge is enough to clean it.
Promising review: Like many folks, my wife and I recently decided to move away from buying milk in plastic containers. To achieve this, we’re now having our milk delivered to our doorstep in reusable and recyclable glass bottles. So, with this in mind, we needed ourselves a practical yet attractive milk bottle holder. As usual, I probably spent far too much time inwardly debating the pros and cons of those available on Amazon before finally ordering this one. Why this one? Well, because it ticked all the boxes. I’ve been using this for a few days now, and we’re very happy with it. It’s well-made from coated steel—so it’s robust and should easily stand up to the elements. It has a wooden handle that I have put an extra coat of varnish on to give it further protection (that’s me being pedantic, though). The nice thing about the handle is that it is held in place by 2 Philips screws—so it could easily be removed and replaced, if need be, many years down the line. Another one of this holder’s good points is that it features 4 metal balled feet on its base—meaning your bottles and the base unit itself will not get wet or muddy after a heavy downpour. Honestly, if you’re looking for a bottle holder for your milk that will look good on your doorstep, then I think you can’t go far wrong with getting yourself one of these. Highly recommended. @Siltone

4. These containers won’t just save space in your refrigerator; they’re designed to keep your food fresher, longer.
4.4 stars out of 5
The advanced carbon filter traps and absorbs ethylene gas, slowing the aging process and reducing food spoilage. The elevated colander lifts food up and away from container walls to allow air to flow from all sides and prevent rotting. Adjustable ventilation provides the optimal humidity for a variety of foods to keep them crisp and fresh.
Ideal for strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, cherries, grapes, kiwis, limes, lemons, clementines, figs, plums, cherry tomatoes, peas, mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, ginger, herbs, and other small fruits and vegetables.
Promising review: I am very impressed. I used this to keep the contents of 2 salad bags, and after a week, the leaves were still fresh. I also have 2 small ones for herbs, spring onions, and peeled garlic, and they work just as well. 2 things to note: a) Don’t forget to remove the plastic wrap around the filter in the top insert. Otherwise, no ethylene will get absorbed, and b) Although the instructions recommend shutting the vent on top of the insert for salad and herbs, I have found that in practice, they keep better with the vent open as this allows excess humidity to evaporate. I also have the drawer insert, and that is also very impressive, but in that case, you do need to close the vents at the top of the drawer (if your fridge allows for that). This really works. No more wilted leaves! @BHP

5. Keep your soda handy in one place with these clear drink holders. They hold up to 12 cans at a time. Put them in the fridge or keep them in the pantry for optimal storage.
4.3 stars out of 5
This holder has a practical design that saves space and keeps your refrigerator tidy. The tilted shelves allow the rolling cans to slide forward for quick and easy removal. This feature also ensures you get your old cans out first.
Promising review: This can holder is very sturdy, and no assembly is required. It is very functional and saves so much space. It’s great for keeping track of which cans are the coldest in the fridge. @Michelle wallace

6. Let’s face it, bottles take up a lot of space in the fridge. Luckily, these bottle racks stack to create plenty of vertical storage space in your fridge, and their size allows you to store bottles that are up to 2 liters.
4.6 stars out of 5
The set consists of 2 pieces. You can use them separately or combine and stack them to create a custom storage solution that fits your space. The transparent design and open-top make it easy to see what’s inside and quickly grab what you need.
Promising review: I love, love, love these holders for the refrigerator. I never had enough space in the refrigerator door to stand these liter bottles up and had to lay them down. And I’m sure those who have done this know the bottles tend to roll back and forth as you move things around on the shelves to get them out of the refrigerator. Well, not anymore now that I have these holders. I placed mine on the bottom shelf by the crisper and pushed them all the way back. Now our liter bottles are out of the way but easy to access. No more having to move them around in the refrigerator or having them roll as I move items around that are near them. I placed mine side by side, but they do stack quite nicely. It’s sturdy plastic and not the thin, flimsy type I was expecting. Since they are stackable, it makes them easier to get to. You don’t have to shuffle bottles around to get to the one on the back. I would definitely recommend these. @califblonde

7. This pull-out refrigerator organizer is made of high-quality, odorless plastic. Thanks to its special under-shelf attachment, you can make the most of your fridge’s space.
4.3 stars out of 5
Why clutter the shelves and doors of your refrigerator with perishable food when you can create extra storage space? This drawer has removable dividers and simply slides under the refrigerator shelf to create extra storage space—no tools required.
How to install:
1. Pull out the rail to attach the shelf to your fridge
2. Place and attach the drawer under the shelf rail.
3. Insert the drawer partition to divide the organizer when you need it.
Promising review: I ordered these to replace a larger drawer in the fridge that had a broken runner, which had been very cheaply made. These 2 bins are smaller, but since I can put one on each side of the fridge, leaving the center space below visible, it’s actually easier to see all the contents of the shelf below. So far, I’m pretty pleased with them. They were super easy to install. @Jo E. Meyertons

8. These plastic egg trays are the perfect solution for organizing your refrigerator. To keep your eggs fresh, you can label the tray with the date or write the date directly on it with a dry marker. The tray has a handle, so you can easily move it around the shelves.
4.8 stars out of 5
The plastic egg holder protects eggs from breaking much better than the cardboard or Styrofoam containers you can buy at the supermarket. This egg holder holds 16 eggs. Thanks to the transparent lid, you can easily see how many eggs you have left, and you can safely stack other things on top of the container.
Promising review: These came in a pack of 2. I love them! Our fridge, on the cold setting, not on one occasion but several, has literally frozen our eggs! These egg holders are brilliant! They stay how they are when purchased (just much colder in temperature), but not frozen and spoiled! I love that you can stack them on top of each other. It doesn’t take up space in the fridge at all. I would recommend these! @Riquita
