How Refrigerator Layout Should Be
There are many things we think we're doing right, but wrong and overlooked when installing our refrigerators. In fact, these mistakes damage both our refrigerator and our food and drinks. In this article, we want to talk about how we should correct these mistakes.
1. An Empty or Overfilled Refrigerator
First of all, we must say that if a refrigerator is 2/3 (two-thirds) full, your refrigerator will work correctly and in its most efficient way. If you fill your refrigerator too much and place food or drink in front of the vents, you will block the air flow. This reduces the energy efficiency of your refrigerator. It is both harmful to your refrigerator and an overfilled refrigerator will also cause food waste. For this reason, we recommend that you buy as many products as you need, taking into account the capacity and occupancy rate of your refrigerator while shopping. Thus, you will both avoid wastage and extend the life of your refrigerator.
2. Placing Fruits and Vegetables in the Refrigerator
Generally, every refrigerator has 2 compartments for placing fruits and vegetables. Use one of these compartments for your fruits and one for your vegetables. The reason for this is the ethylene substance in the fruits. Ethylene substance causes vegetables to spoil more quickly.
Ethylene: A plant hormone found in the tissues of ripening fruits, root nodules, senescent leaves and flowers. It is the only gaseous hormone. It ensures the ripening of the fruit. It turns starch into sugar.
In addition, place the fruits and vegetables you buy in the fruit and vegetable section of your refrigerator as they are without washing, peeling and chopping. Fruits and vegetables that go through these processes lose their freshness and spoil much more quickly. If you place a towel at the bottom of these two compartments, it will give you practicality while cleaning.
3. Placing Meat in the Refrigerator
You should only keep your meat in the freezer section of your refrigerator. It should not be in the part used on a daily basis in any way. If there is no room left in the freezer and you have bought meat, you can temporarily store it at the bottom of your refrigerator. In order not to contaminate your refrigerator, you should place a tray under the meat.
4. The Hottest Parts of Your Refrigerator
The hottest parts of a refrigerator are its door and top shelf. You should not store milk in the door of your refrigerator. Milk is a perishable product, and since the door of your refrigerator is hot, it will cause it to spoil prematurely, even if it has never been opened. In one example, they are egg chambers in the lid. Eggs spoil very quickly and it is quite wrong to put eggs on the door of your refrigerator. It is best and best to store vinegar and salty products on your refrigerator door. For the top shelf, snacks and meals made during the day and left for the next day will be the best options.
You can use baskets, trays and containers to make your refrigerator look neater and more aesthetic. For example, keeping all the jars on a tray or combining the packages of your breakfast items in a small basket will provide you with a more aesthetic appearance and space saving.
Refrigerator is indispensable for a home or a workplace. It is a product that should be used effectively and properly. Please pay attention to the above for healthy food and drinks.
