Banana Hangers - Chrome, Wood and Bamboo Banana Hook Holder Stands

Updated on June 8, 2014

...or how to stop bananas from turning brown so quickly.

Did you know you can make bananas last longer in your fruit bowl simply by allowing air to circulate freely around them and by preventing them from pressing up against any surface like your kitchen counter top? It's true, and it is the reason why a banana hanger or banana holder is such a popular kitchen accessory. Bananas will turn brown and mushy faster when they are pressed together or leaning on a surface but you can extend their life by suspending them in the air just like when the bunch was hanging from the banana tree. It is simple and sounds unlikely but it's true and it works.

A banana hanger suspends your favorite yellow fruit above your kitchen countertop or work surface to prevent premature browning and blackening of the skin and fruit inside. It is shaped and designed to do just that and nothing more than to simply hang a bunch of yellow bananas in the air just like when they were dangling from the banana tree. This simple action can keep bananas fresh for longer and ultimately save you money in the long run.

Types Of Banana Hanger Stand

Pick Your Favorite...

The banana hanger has evolved a little over time going from a simple under cabinet banana hanging hook to some highly attractive and desirable decorative stands so of which combine with a fruit bowl for multi-functionality.

The traditional wooden or plastic banana hook is a cheap alternative for anyone who doesn't desire a more decorative alternative. These attach underneath your top level kitchen cabinetry and simply hang a bunch of bananas to keep them fresh. These are simple and effective but they look somewhat boring and a little unattractive when there's no fruit hanging from them.

A more decorative and eye-pleasing alternative is the banana hanger stand which are found in both wooden and metal varieties so you can find something which matches the rest of your kitchen. So if you are decked out in mainly chrome kitchen appliances and accessories, then you can find a chrome banana hanger to match, or if your kitchen has mostly black appliances and accessories then instead, you might want to opt for an ornate black scroll banana hanger stand instead.

My personal favorite type is the banana hanger fruit bowl combination which is basically a traditional fruit bowl with a banana stand attached which suspends a bunch of bananas (or grapes as I sometimes do) over the fruit bowl. This makes more sense to me, keeping all the fruit together in one place and some of these are really attractive as well and make a great housewarming gift or wedding present.

    Very interesting and lots of different choices. I pull my bananas apart and that helps them last a bit longer as well. looks like I should have a banana holder instead.

    Something new! I've often wondered how we could get them to last longer. One can only make so many banana loaves. I think my friends are all getting tired of the loaves I bring to them. Thank you for sharing this information. Angel blessings.

    Thanks for sharing this, I didn't know bananas could be preserved more by hanging them. By the way I featured your lens on my first lens ever, Banana with 2000 fruits. =)
