As many of us turn to food and drink for a well-earned dose of pleasure and enjoyment, Samsung shares advice on how to keep our favourite food and beverages at the optimum temperature - for maximum satisfaction

As Spring turns to Summer and the weather warms up, one place we can still find enjoyment is in our food and drink. Whether it’s an ice cool beverage to give us an energy boost during the working day, or a fruity ice-lolly as a treat, keeping things at an optimum temperature can really help to increase our enjoyment of them. There’s nothing worse than discovering your long-awaited glass of wine is tepid at the end of a busy day, or that your cold salads and meats are in fact warm, which is why adjusting your fridge temperature is so important.


From guidance on where to place your refrigerator, to the best space in the fridge to keep certain items cold; Samsung shares tips to help you enjoy a cool, calm and collected summer.



Top tips to keep your fridge contents at the optimal temperature


  • Keep your fridge temperature set at 3°C/37.4F and your freezer set at -19°C/-2.2F (or -18°C/-0.4F, depending on your model) all year-round
  • Ensure that your fridge-freezer is situated at least 5 cm from walls on both sides and 10 cm from the wall at the rear. If the fridge-freezer isn’t well-ventilated, the freezer temperature could rise and food may start to defrost when the overall room temperature starts to rise, as it does in summer (Ice cream and bread tend to be the first items to soften)
  • Ensure your fridge-freezer is not placed in a conservatory or direct sunlight during the summer months. Such locations are likely to exceed 40°C on warm sunny days which could cause the internal temperature of your appliance to rise too
  • Only use the power cool and power freeze functions featured on your Samsung fridge freezer when large quantities of fresh food are placed in the fridge or freezer (such as when you’re storing the week’s grocery shopping). The power function should be switched on 2 hours before the food/drink goes in and switched off 5 hours after the food/drink has been placed in the refrigerator
  • Do not keep ice creams, ice lollies or bread in the doors or on the top shelf of the freezer: these areas aren’t the coldest parts and so these items are likely to defrost faster if stored in these areas


“Keeping our food and drinks at the right temperature is not only essential to preventing them from going off, but it can also maximize our enjoyment eating and drinking them. This is why we are committed to providing customers with total control over the temperature of their fridge-freezers, building in helpful features such as the cool select pantry to make them as easy to use as possible,” said Nick Bevan, Head of Product Management for Digital Appliances.
