Did you know by simply placing food in the correct part of the fridge it generally keeps it fresher for longer?
Here’s our simple guide to fridge-mapping:
Top shelf: Should be used for leftovers (that have been cooled properly before placing in the fridge!), drinks and foods that are already cooked.
Middle shelf: Eggs & Dairy.
Bottom shelf: Raw meat, anything that is uncooked (this must be wrapped properly and kept safely away from cooked foods to avoid cross contamination).
Bottom drawers: Fruit (1 drawer) , vegetables & salads (1 drawer).
Side enclosed shelf: Any foods with strong smells that could penetrate and ruin other foods (blue cheese, chorizo). Raw food should not be kept in this part of the fridge.
Side Open Shelf: Condiments (This can often be the warmest part of the fridge so non-perishables work best here). Raw food should not be kept in this part of the fridge.
