My kids are fruit fanatics so I always try to have a variety on hand. It doesn’t usually last long in our house, but occasionally a stray apple, banana, or orange escapes behind a basket, box, or some other clutter on my counter. Akwardly shaped fruits refuse to fit in the baskets I’ve used to keep our fruits. Glass bowls can be beautiful, but dangerous in a house full of kids. So, my fruits sometimes roll around the counters, moving from spot to spot. To be clear, finding fruits that have been hiding out for a week or more can be easy…just follow the fruit flies or maybe even the smell. The stylish two-tier hammock style #FruitBowl from Francois et Mimi is the perfect answer!
Keeping all our fruits easily accessible and in view, makes it easy to grab a piece of fruit for a snack…versus lurking into the depths of our cabinets to find the processed snacks that I occasionally hide away. This fruit storage solution also offers a way to keep fruits “together”, but separated enough to discourage off-gassing too. There’s nothing worse than throwing away what was perfectly good fruits because they’ve spoiled prematurely sitting together (or hiding behind the stack of mail I’ve yet to get to). As some fruits and vegetables ripen, they release ethylene which is a gas that can cause other fruits to rot…becoming spotted, soft, or mealy. Yuck.
With two large swinging baskets, this fruit bowl offers up a lot of fruit and makes for a beautiful presentation. I’m planning on using it as an eye-catching chrome centerpiece for get-togethers too. Lining each basket with a cloth napkin (to catch any crumbs) and filling them with goodies like muffins, donuts, rolls or biscuits would be a great way to serve these foods at the table. It’s sturdy and stable and can hold a lot of food.
