The refrigerator is the most popular device for any person. Such equipment is almost irreplaceable, so you need to constantly monitor its operation and carry out various preventive measures.
Due to the low temperature in the chamber, your food will be kept fresh much longer. But this is provided that the correct temperature mode is selected in the refrigerator, and the products are placed in the appropriate temperature zones. Therefore, the safety of food will depend on the correct use of your refrigerator.
What temperature regime should be maintained in the refrigerator?
There are established standards to which all refrigeration units are subject. That is, each refrigerator model has its own temperature control system, but the minimum and maximum values are set by the manufacturer. Thus, you will not be able to choose an arbitrary temperature mode for the refrigerator or freezer.
Why is this done?! The answer is very simple. The manufacturer of any product calculates the shelf life of its product. Therefore, they can guarantee the freshness of their product only if it is stored at a certain temperature. For example, cheese can be stored for 7 days at a temperature of + 5 C. If you store cheese in other conditions, the norm will be violated, and it will quickly deteriorate.
But, unfortunately, not all products can be stored at the same temperature, for this purpose, the refrigerator provides different storage areas for food.
The refrigerator is designed for short-term storage of products, so the temperature in it should be small so that all the useful elements are stored in the products. Do not set the temperature in the chamber below 0, as the food will begin to freeze. The most optimal temperature for the chamber is from 3 to 8 degrees.
The temperature in the freezer can reach up to -30 degrees. But, for its optimal operation, the temperature from -25 to -20 degrees is suitable.
Do not forget that the refrigerator shelves are designed to store different products, so the temperature on them will be different.
To make it easier for you to maintain the correct temperature, manufacturers set the default operating mode of the device.
