How to use the freezer correctly?

How to use the freezer correctly?

We have a lot of questions about the freezer. Can we freeze the fruit? Is it advisable to defrost at room temperature? How long can a food be frozen? In the blog, we want to answer all these questions that you have surely asked yourself more than once. Next, we will tell you how to optimally use the freezer to get the best out of it.

Respect the temperature.

The ideal temperature for the refrigerator is 4 ° C and -18 ° C for the freezer. It is important to follow these instructions and not to suddenly vary the temperature by introducing hot food or too much food at the same time for example. Otherwise, it causes extra work for your freezer, and therefore increased expenses.

Pack food properly.

You may have noticed how the intense cold ends up burning your skin. In the freezer, your food can suffer the same fate if you do not store it with the proper packaging. An airtight bag, film, and even a plastic container will protect the food. This will also avoid contamination between foods.

Nothing is eternal: plan.

Experts recommend freezing food for up to three months, one month if it is ground meat or seafood. Food does not become toxic after this date, but its taste and texture are significantly altered. Therefore, we recommend that you control foods in the freezer and include foods that are about to expire in your recipes. So you will enjoy them as if they were fresh.

How would you like to eat later?

When you've thawed a food, it's always much easier to find it already chopped or prepared. That's why we encourage you to prepare your food fresh before freezing it.

In addition, it usually takes up less space in the freezer. The smaller the piece, the faster it will go through the freezing process. It is therefore preferable to freeze a piece of meat in fillets rather than as a whole. You can separate the fillets with cooking film so you can easily peel them off.

May your freezer not become a disaster.

No one likes to throw food away, but the freezer can't become a container of food we'll never cook. We are referring to products left in our freezer and about to expire. In fact, you know you will end up throwing them away. Take advantage of the space available in your freezer to keep a well-planned purchase that you will fully enjoy.
