Storing Lettuce in a Crisper

What setting should I put my crisper on for storing lettuce?

You have a "humidity level" setting? Open about half but the one thing you should never do to lettuce: cut it with a metal utensil. Alwyas plastic cutting tools or tear it apart by hand. The lettuce lasts longer that way. (Chemical reaction to metal caused it to go brown)

Just a tip - our crisper has a meat or vegetable setting. It kept sliding over to meat (kids?) and the produce would freeze, ruining any with a high water content like lettuce. Once you find a setting you like, a little masking tape on either side of the knob will keep it from sliding and save your produce and money.
