CARAT Fruit Basket with Banana Hanger {Review}

DSCN3132The CARAT Fruit Basket with Banana Hanger is a great dual purpose kitchen item. What drew me right away was the fact that I could hang bananas and place other fruits and vegetables in the generous sized bottom bowl. The open areas helped seal the deal for me. The open design ensures the inner contents will last longer preventing bruises and allowing breathing for fresh produce.

The durability is high. The hanger can hold a large number of bananas on the hook and still allow for many fruits to rest below. I would recommend having weight in the bottom of the bowl (i.e fruit or vegetables) when hanging bananas from the hook. The bowl can be somewhat unstable with bananas hanging from the top and and empty bowl below.

Because my kids can see the fruit bowl sitting up on the counter or table, they’ve asked for fresh fruit more often than any other snack! It’s been a great replacement for a large wooden bowl that fruit used to reside in. I guess for them it was out of sight, out of mind. This bowl has a been a huge space safer, has caused my kids to chose healthier choices for snacks (apples, bananas, pears, oranges, and more!), and has kept produce fresher longer. I highly recommend it!
