Don't store these foods in the fridge. It isn't required

You do know that you're not supposed to keep any and everything in the refrigerator, right? It's a very wrong thing to stuff your fridge with half the things that you get from the grocery stores. There are foods that you need to refrigerate while others should be kept out in the kitchen. Putting all the food items in the fridge even when it isn't required will only take away all the natural flavours of the foods and you might also just lose on some money if these refrigerated items turn stale in no time. We've gotten you a list of things that you shouldn't at all put in the fridge.


02/31Stone fruits

Stone fruits

Fruits like nectarines, apricots, plums and peaches are usually best left at room temperature so that they can ripen the right way. If you store them in the refrigerator, they'll probably expire sooner than expected.


03/31Peanut butter

Peanut butter

The all time favourite and very healthy peanut butter doesn't need to be stored in the refrigerated at all. You can instead keep it in the cabinet for months and not worry about it spoiling at all, until it reaches the expiry date.




Since pickles are preserved with a lot of sodium and brine, you can actually just store them in the pantry instead of sliding them in the refrigerator.




Any type of berries anyway have a limited shelf life once they're plucked. And putting them in the fridge under cold temperatures will only cause them to turn bad faster. Hence, you must finish your berries as soon as you get them fresh from the market.


06/31Whole bell peppers

Whole bell peppers

The peppers can lose their crunch if they're stored in cold temperatures and you won't really want a mushy pepper, would you? However, once you cut peppers and then would want to store it for longer, you can slide it into the fridge, but not otherwise.




If you're sure you're going to eat this veggie in a few days, make sure you only store them on your counter. But if you think you'll take more than a couple of days to cook it, put it in the fridge but you should know that the flavour will start deteriorating.


08/31Soy sauce

Soy sauce

Just like pickles, even soy sauce doesn't need to be stored in the refrigerator because it contains sodium which can very much sustain for a long time at room temperature itself.




Refrigerating coffee in the powder form will only add moisture to it. Even the beans will get deteriorated if kept in a very cool. Rather, make sure you keep it in an airtight containing in your kitchen itself.


10/31Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits last long at room temperature itself and even taste better when they're left out on the kitchen counter. Only if you plan on storing them for a longer duration, you can slide them in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life. Although, they might not taste the same.
