Tips to organize your refrigerator

  • Temperature is Key:
    • Know your zones: Most refrigerators have different temperature zones.
      • Colder shelves are best for raw meat, poultry, and fish.
      • Mid-level shelves are ideal for dairy products, leftovers, and prepared foods.
      • The top shelf and door compartments are good for drinks, condiments, and fruits and vegetables that don't require extreme cold.
    • Maintain proper temperature:
      • Fridge:
        • TMF 330: For the best results, choose the "Colder" setting on your fridge. 
        • TMF 420/TMF 530 & SBS 600: For optimal food freshness, we recommend setting your fridge temperature between 2°C and 4°C. You can easily adjust the temperature using your control panel.
      • Freezer:
          • TMF 330/TMF 420/TMF 530: Select the "Colder" setting for optimal freezing
        • SBS 600: To keep your frozen food at its peak quality, we recommend setting the freezer temperature between -18°C and -22°C.
  • Freshness and Organization:
    • Wrap it up: Use airtight containers or wraps to store leftovers, cooked foods, and opened packages to prevent them from drying out or absorbing odors.
    • Separate raw from cooked: Always store raw meat, poultry, and fish below cooked foods to avoid cross-contamination.
    • First in, first out: Use older items first to prevent them from spoiling in the back of the fridge. Consider labeling leftovers with the date they were prepared.
    • Proper produce storage: Wash most fruits and vegetables just before eating, not before storing them. Some produce, like apples, release ethylene gas that can cause other items to ripen too quickly. Store them separately or wrapped.
    • Leftovers cool down quickly: Don't put hot food directly in the fridge. Let it cool completely at room temperature first, or transfer it to a shallow container to speed up cooling.
  • Maximizing Space and Efficiency:
    • Don't overcrowd: Allow for air circulation between items for proper cooling.
    • Clean up spills promptly: Spills can attract bacteria and create odors.
    • Utilize door compartments: Store condiments, sauces, and drinks in the door compartments, freeing up shelf space for more perishable items.
    • Know when to toss it: Regularly check for expired or spoiled food and discard it promptly to prevent contamination and unpleasant odors.

By following these tips, you can keep your food fresh and safe to eat for longer, reduce food waste, and optimize your refrigerator's performance.
