Maintaining the correct refrigerator or freezer temperature is important as it affects the food quality, food safety, energy costs, taste, appearance and nutrient content of stored food. Storing food at the correct temperature will slow down or stop the spread of harmful bacteria and extends the product shelf life.
As all food has bacteria, storing food in refrigerators will slow down bacteria growth whereas freezer will stop growth. It is important to take note that freezers do not kill bacteria as the bacteria will resume growth when the food is thawed.
Setting the correct refrigerator temperature is important as expiration dates on perishable food such as milk are based on the supposition that the food is kept at the appropriate temperature.
The freezer temperature affects more than whether it can produce ice. For each five degrees above the desired freezer temperature, the length of time the food may be stored is reduced by half.
According to Energy Star, storing food at the correct temperature also reduces energy use and saves money. Perishable food stored in refrigerator should have a temperature set between 2°C - 3°C. For freezer or stand-alone freezer, food will be maintained at the highest quality for the longest time when it is maintained at 0°C. At 0°C, microbes and food borne bacteria are inactive. Storing food at these Energy Star recommended temperature ensures the optimum energy consumption of the refrigerator, freezer or display fridges, and in turn it helps to save money.
The accurate, low cost and easy-to-use Blue Gizmo BG-TM-100 Digital Freezer-Fridge-Thermometer can be used to prolong food storage shelf life and reduce energy use. It can measure temperature in refrigerator, freezer or display fridges in supermarket, restaurants, cold rooms, freezer rooms, bakeries, meat stalls in wet markets, homes and more. Temperatures should be regularly monitored so that timely temperature adjustments can be made to the refrigerators, freezers or display fridges by simply adjusting the temperature control dial.
The elegantly designed BG-TM-100 can measure temperature (°C /°F) from -30°C to 50°C, with a very high accuracy of (+/-) 0.8°C at -20°C to 10°C, otherwise (+/-) 1°C. It can display and store the maximum and minimum temperature.
