    I find that the salad drawer is perfect for keeping fresh both the Flesh Of The Unclean and the Skin Of The Unworthy.

    Also lettuce.

    Or it could be because it's a completely pointless endeavour.

    DON'T PUT YOUR EGGS IN THE FRIDGE DAMNIT.

    Take eggs at room temperature, add sufficient water to cover the eggs in the pan from your hot tap (as hot as it comes).

    Put pan on the hob, once boiling, time for 3 minutes et voila - the perfect soft-boiled egg.

    Never understood this one. It doesn't spoil any quicker out of the fridge, and has the bonus of not being cold when put on hot food.
    I prefer tomato sauce (and other sauces) to be cold. Can't stand it at room temperature.

    Or take eggs from the fridge, add boiling water and on the hob for 5 minutes. Use the rest of the boiling water for a cuppa.

    ...5 minutes for hard-boiled egg. Did you and I both get this from Delia Smith?

    Wait, why can't you put opened tins in the fridge?

    Get bent.

    I actually wouldn't do this, as the stuff might go a bit oxidised/metallic tasting.

    But I did eat a nice jar of French pate (the bad type) that was 5 years out of date just before Xmas. I had a wee bit the first day to make sure I didn't die.

    Our salad drawer is full with soil and pets juts now.

    We do keep eggs in the fridge, but I think that's partly because there's nowhere else to put them. Bloody tiny kitchen.

    We don't follow storage advice. Not strictly anyway.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    As soon as the tin is opened it's a good idea to removed the contents because oxygen reacts with the insides causing all kinds of bad to leak into the food.

    I put bread in the fridge.

    Also, eggs. I didn't know you could leave them out!

    My fridge came with an egg holder! Not my fault, govnur!

    OTOH I don't really understand people who put bread in the fridge. You put bread in the fridge to make it go stale quicker if you want to make bread and butter pudding. So presumably you're wrapping it tightly to keep the moisture from getting out? Would it not be simpler to keep it somewhere more humid like, oh, outside the fridge? OTOH the fridge will slow moult forming, but pre-packaged sliced bread is so full of preservatives anyway that it takes over a week for it to start to spoil in my experience. Seems a lot of faff for an inferior slice of bread to me.

    Woah, major deja vu from this thread.

    Actually, it's NOT deja vu as I know we've had arguments about keeping tomato ketchup and eggs in the fridge before...

    It has been mentioned numerous times, but a sliced load in the freezer is great for instantly toasting.

    Oops, I didn't kill him!!

    I used to leave the bread out, but it would always get mould long before we were finished eating it.

    If you get a good loaf, it'll stay nicely in the fridge for over a month. It's definitely more dry, but better than throwing it out.

    Also, toast isn't affected.

    Why would you keep eggs in the fridge, you don't buy them from the chilled section of supermarkets and they crack if they're too cold when you boil them.

    We're celebrating 75 years of Batman - and here's my look back at Rocksteady's Arkham series.

    Frozen bread is ace though, perfect for long term toast planning

    Storing bread in the fridge makes it go stale in a day or two. I wouldn't bother.

    Freezing bread for toast is good though!

    Does American bread not last forever? Due to the quality of ingredients obviously, not industrial strength preservatives ;)

    I take my bread from the bag that it came home from the store in and put it immediately into the refridgerator and have been doing so for years.

    You're going to come in and tell me it goes stale in a day or two? No, it does not. Even the cheapest bread I ever purchased managed to last more than a day or two.

    Our bread runs the spectrum from bad to good quality. I buy Pepperidge Farm mostly, which is about the best you'll get, damn it! :D

    Cheaper bread seems to use oils to carry moisuture, rather than water. To be fair, I do use ultra-cheap bread when I'm making bread and butter pudding, and to get that to stale overnight I do have to make sure it's stacked so the refrigerated air can get to as many surfaces as possible.

    Well, in the end I wouldn't "recommend" putting bread in the fridge unless you need it to last for more than a week or so. I just got tired of throwing money out the window.
