Eg­gspert eggs plains eggs­actly where we should be stor­ing our fresh eggs

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - LIFE | TASTE - — The Sun

THE egg rack in your fridge door might seem like the per­fect place to store your eggs – but don’t be fooled.

Plenty of peo­ple be­lieve that eggs should be kept in a cool and dry cup­board rather than the fridge but, ac­cord­ing to a stor­age ex­pert, the fridge is the best place for them.

But where you place them in the fridge is cru­cial.

Vlatka Lake from Space Sta­tion says the ab­so­lute worst place to put eggs is in the plas­tic egg rack that is ei­ther built in, or comes as an insert with fridges.

She says that by plac­ing the eggs in the door of the fridge, they will be sub­jected to a se­ries of sud­den tem­per­a­ture changes as the door opens and closes, and that makes them go off quicker than if they were kept at just a con­sis­tent tem­per­a­ture.

“When it comes to eggs, there is a huge de­bate on where they should be kept, with some say­ing in the fridge and oth­ers say­ing on the counter,” Ms Lake says.

“The gen­eral con­sen­sus is to store eggs in the fridge, but not in the egg racks com­monly found on the fridge door.

“Egg racks are sus­cep­ti­ble to changes in tem­per­a­ture due to the fridge door open­ing and clos­ing and can cause your eggs to go rot­ten more quickly.”
