cover the pitcher

When you make tea or something in a glass pitcher with no lid do you cover it with saran wrap before putting it in the fridge?

  • I don't know that I would ever buy a pitcher that didn't have some sort of lid. I'm notorious for being a clutz and I know I would end up slopping tea or whatever all over the place. But if I did, I probably wouldn't put saran wrap over it.

  • I always do. I think that the liquid can absorb smells from the fridge, and can cause it to taste funny. That and I'm a super clutz so I need all the help I can get!

  • No but I need to! Somehow my lids always go missing or they get cracked and then don't fit right. The liquid does asorb the smells. I used to wonder why my kool aid would start to taste funny when I was little, now I know!

  • I don't, and it still tastes fine. It's never really in the fridge for more than a day and a half, we drink a lot.

  • Nope and it tastes fine.

  • I do, partly because of the smell thing, and partly because I have a self-defrosting refrigerator/freezer and the directions said to be sure to cover everything because the defrost feature would cause the item to lose liquid. Then there is the problem with spills. For me, if it can spill, it will.

  • I never place any open containers in the fridge for two reasons: 1) For fear of spillage, and; 2) The open container allows the contents inside to absorb any odors in the fridge.
