*Hot food must be cooled to room temperature before
storing in the refrigerator.
*Dry any water droplets on the food before placing it in
the refrigerator.
*It is recommended that food be sealed in suitable
storage bags before placing it in the refrigerator.
This will prevent moisture in the food from evaporating
and prevent vegetables and fruit from withering or
altering in flavor.
*Storage of Sorted Food
Food to be stored should be sorted according to
consumer requirements. Food consumed daily should
be placed in the most convenient area, this will minimize
opening periods for the door.
*Do not store excess quantities or weights of food
Food should be stored with spaces in between for better
storage results. Never overload shelves, as they may
collapse under excessive loads.
*Do not place food too close to the internal walls. The
stored food placed close to internal walls is easily frozen
onto the walls.
*Storage period will be extended if vegetables are
placed with their roots towards the cold source.
*Leaves of carrots or turnips should be removed before
*Eggs should be stored vertically in the egg holder.
*Frozen food can be placed in the cold compartment
before serving, as this will conserve energy.
