The temperature varies from top to bottom of the compartment
The coldest part of your fridge is at the bottom, the top may be warmer so where you store the food is important.If food is going off we may need to look closer at where in the fridge it is placed. The most suitable place for cool dairy products, cheese, butter, margarine, low fat spreads, cooking fats/lards, jams, marmalade, salad dressing or sauces is ton the top shelves. Keep uncooked meats and fish on the lower shelves and salads in the bin at the bottom. Always wrap food to keep it nice and fresh and prevent the build up of condensation in your fridge.
