The Right Way To Store Food In Your Fridge

with No Comments

1. Freezer

To extend the shelf life of your food (we’re talking for weeks and months here), you often chuck them into your freezer compartment. But, are you storing your frozen food properly?

It is essential to have your frozen items tightly sealed or at least covered in a plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out in the cold air. Do not let your food become “freezer-burned“!

Freezer burn is a condition that occurs when frozen food has been damaged by dehydration and oxidation, due to air reaching the food. It is generally caused by food not being securely wrapped in air-tight packaging.

Freezer-safe containers such as our Klear 2-Way Fridge Storage Box is great for storing frozen meats and fishes. Best part, it comes with an in-built drainer that automatically separates excess moisture.

2. Upper Shelf

While storing food in the chiller, keep this rule in mind:

Hot air rises, cold air sinks.

It’s colder at the back.

Hence, the upper shelf tends to have a slightly warmer temperature compared to the other areas of the fridge.

Usually, the upper shelf is known as the “Dairy compartment”. Its temperature is perfect to store cheese and butter that is often used for cooking/eating. Butter spreads smoothly when it is not hardened up too much.


3. Middle Shelf

The most accessible shelf where things gets “stuffed into”, resulting in a total mess. Because mess always piles up here, fridge organization is important here. Aside from being the messiest, temperature is the most consistent here.

Store commonly used items in this shelf such as drinks, leftovers and spreads if you’d like. Leftovers should be stored properly in food containers.

4. Bottom Shelf

Going back to the guideline of “cold air sinks”, temperature gets lower towards the bottom. Store deli meats (e.g ham), cold-cuts and eggs here.

You might be wondering, shouldn’t eggs be stored in the egg tray near the door? However, to prolong the freshness of eggs, the bottom (or middle) shelf is best for storing them due to its colder and consistent temperature. Temperature at the door fluctuates the most.

If you are looking to defrost your frozen meat and fish, simply place it at the bottom shelf of your fridge too. Note that raw meat shouldn’t be kept at room temperature for more than 2 hours.


5. Crisper Drawers

Crisper drawers are designed to regulate the humidity, temperature and air circulation. While fruits and vegetables are often mentioned together, do not store them in the same storage container.

Fruits produces ethylene gas while vegetables are sensitive to ethylene gas. They turn yellow faster when they are exposed to it!

Note: Avoid washing fruits and veggies before storing them into your fridge. Moisture speeds up decomposition.


6. Fridge Door

Temperature fluctuates the most at the fridge door. As such, place items with longer shelf life in there. Condiments and sauces fit the bill perfectly.


Fridge Organization Tips

  • Do not cramp your fridge to the brim. This hinders air circulation and makes it hard for you to search for things.
  • Clean your fridge regularly. Get rid of long expired items and leftovers and you’ll be surprised how much space you can free up!
  • Categorise and store similar items together using fridge organizer bins. This prevent you from simply shoving items into your fridge.

P.S Label your fridge organizer bins using our Blank Pantry Sticker Labels. It is perfect to label any containers, especially your leftover food!
