Buying a Larder Fridge

What temperature should a larder fridge be?
When shopping for a fridge it’s difficult to be confused by the various terms used to describe the appliance. One of the most common is a larder fridge. A larder fridge is a refrigerator that doesn’t have an freezer or ice box which means that the space inside is reserved for refrigeration solely. This is ideal for those looking to maximize their cooling space without paying for an icebox or freezer.
Larder refrigerators are available as freestanding models, or they can be integrated into your kitchen design. They usually come with a cabinet-style door that can be opened or closed just like any other. They will blend seamlessly into your kitchen, and can be hidden from view for a sleek and seamless look.
Tall refrigerators with larders are a great alternative to side-by-side fridge/freezer combinations, since they provide more storage space for chilled food items. They can be either freestanding or integrated and are generally between 55-60cm wide and deep. They can be easily fitted between other cabinets from floor to ceiling, and make the perfect built-in in kitchen.
Whatever the size of the refrigerator in your larder it is essential to store food at the right temperature. The cooling of food slows the growth of microorganisms, bacteria and other harmful organisms.
The optimal temperature for storing food items in a fridge is between 2 and -5degC. This is dependent on the frequency at which you open the refrigerator, since it will get warmer every time air enters it.
It is crucial to keep dairy products (eggs and milk) high in your larder refrigerator. Raw meat should be kept on the lowest shelf of the fridge. This isn’t only for temperature reasons, but also to prevent any runaway juices contaminating other foods. Crisper drawers are ideal for vegetables. Fruits can release ethylene, which can cause other foods to become ripe. This could be a problem for foods like apples, watermelons, and tomatoes.
