Cool vs Cooler

When placing your food in your fridge, you should be mindful of the fact that different spots will be cooler than others. This is an important consideration because it will maximise the freshness of your food.

In most fridges, the door shelves are the warmest area. This is where you should keep items that don’t need to be kept as cold as others, for example condiments and sauces.

The further down you go, the colder it gets. The bottom shelves of your fridge are the coldest spaces, we suggest you storing raw meat and dairy products like milk on these shelves. As you go higher things will get slightly warmer so you might want to put deli produce on the middle shelves, processed foods or leftovers on the top shelves.
