It's best not to put hot things in the refrigerator, because this will increase the temperature in the refrigerator, increase the power consumption of the refrigerator, and even cause the refrigerator to frost, which will affect its operation. When we usually store leftovers, we'd better cool them at room temperature for a while, then seal them with plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator for preservation. Can there be anything hot in the fridge? We usually leave the remaining food for the next meal after eating. At this time, we'd better not put the remaining food in the fridge immediately, but put it in the fridge after it cools down.
The reason for doing this is that after hot things enter the refrigerator, the temperature in the refrigerator will rise, which will increase the power consumption of the refrigerator. Not to mention, it may also lead to frosting in the refrigerator, thus affecting the normal operation of the refrigerator. Therefore, we must pay attention to when saving hot things.
Therefore, when we store leftovers, we should first cool them at room temperature for a while. After cooling down for about one or two hours, we can take out the plastic wrap to seal the food, and then put it in the refrigerator for storage.
