APPLIANCE STORAGE HACKS: WHERE TO STORE FOOD IN YOUR FRIDGE Did you know that your refrigerator was actually designed in such a way that certain foods should be kept in various parts of the refrigerator – both for optimum convenience and to keep food fresher longer?
It’s true, and while you might feel like you know exactly where everything should go in a fridge (let’s face it, you’ve been using one your whole life), Michatech is here to share a few food storages you may not know:
IN SHELVES – IN THE BACK As you might guess, milk is more apt to spoiling than other items in the fridge. Many homeowners keep their milk on the door, but this is just not optimum for freshness. The temperatures on the door fluctuate the most, since the air changes each time the door is opened and closed. Instead, store your milk on a shelf, toward the back of the refrigerator.
KEEP MEAT ON BOTTOM SHELVES Meat storage works best When you keep it down low in the refrigerator. This prevents cross-contamination with other foods in the refrigerator and prevents meat from dripping on other foods. Of course, you should always keep your meats well sealed.
UTILIZE THE CRISPER DRAWERS The crisper drawers are there for a reason! Use them for fruits and vegetables. Each has valves that allow you to adjust the humidity of the drawer, based on how much humidity is needed to store various fruits and vegetables. Leafy greens need higher humidity; while heartier items like apples need low humidity.
