Beverages and products with preservatives. It is the easiest place to access and where the temperature is very variable. There you should place drinks, jams, condiments, and sauces. These products have more preservatives or are stored with lids.
The upper part of the refrigerator is ideal for cold meats, butter, some cheeses, cut fruits, and already prepared and portioned food. Some refrigerators include a tray that allows a better organization of this space.
Middle zone for dairy and meats
This is the best place for milk, cheese, yogurt; products that need a temperature of 7°C approximately. Here it is ideal to organize with containers and accessories.
