flavours and to keep the food from drying. Do not store liquids in bottles in the freezer compartment since there is
danger of their bursting.

fridge and may lead to deterioration.
Don’t open the refrigerator door too often-hot air will enter and increase the temperature.
Don’t keep the door open for more than 30 seconds at a time-cold air will rush out of the fridge.
