The first thing most of us do when we get back from the grocery shopping is to put the eggs we bought in the fridge. But we rarely put much thought into this and look for the first available place. As it turns out, this is a mistake.
According to Egg Safety, there is one place in your fridge that is better than the rest when it comes to storing eggs. And it isn’t the egg compartment in the fridge doors.
Why Not The Fridge Doors?
In order to retain their quality, eggs need to have a stable temperature. This won’t be the case if you store them in the fridge doors since the temperature may fluctuate in this part of the fridge due to frequent opening and closing.
The Best Place for Storing Eggs
It is recommended that you store the eggs in the back of the middle shelf in your fridge. According to experts, the temperature here is more stable, and the eggs will remain safe to eat a lot longer.
Other Storing Tips
To ensure your eggs don’t spoil faster than expected, you should also look to keep them in their original container. Another important thing is that you don’t take the eggs out of the fridge unless you intend to use them. When outside, the eggs should be consumed in less than two hours if you don’t want to risk food poisoning.
