Kathleen Zelman: What's in My Fridge?
My secrets for a well-stocked kitchen and healthy meals.
Keep It Safe and Clean
You will definitely find thermometers in all compartments of my refrigerator and freezer to ensure safe temperatures. If you don't already have one, I highly recommend purchasing a thermometer that can be easily hung from a wire shelf or attached to the side wall, and is visible when you open the compartment doors.
Be sure to keep your refrigerator and freezer clean by wiping up spills and debris whenever they happen. This will minimize bacterial contamination to fresh food. Once a week, wipe the interior down with a mild bleach solution to keep it sanitized.
