You almost certainly have a fridge in your home and you use it to store different ingredients and foods. But do you know what should always be kept in the fridge?

There are certain foods that we all know we should refrigerate, like meat, eggs, and milk. On the other hand, there are many other ingredients that we should always keep in the fridge but don’t.

Many everyday items can benefit from being kept in a cooler place, but we often leave them out in the pantry or on the counter.

Hopefully, we compiled a list of foods that you never keep in the fridge but should. You will be surprised that these items are rather common, and by refrigerating them, you can prolong their quality and freshness.

    I never refrigerate my ketchup, as I don’t want cold condiment on a warm hamburger! I’m fortunate to have a pantry on an outside wall with no insulation so it’s very cool in there!

  2. I’m glad to learn things I always refrigerate is the right thing to do.
    Also glad to learn the things I don’t refrigerate is also the right way to go!

  3. I have worked many restaurants as waitstaff and have NEVER dumped ketchup at the end of a shift and refilled bottles with fresh. I HAVE always topped off the bottle so that it APPEARS to be a fresh bottle. Not my idea of fresh but an industry standard and policy of most restaurant parent companies. You can bet that the bottles are not washed between fills even if the policy is to dump at the end of day.

    1. Yep, it’s cross contamination and super gross. I watched a patron use his knife to run up in the ketchup bottle, after using it on his plate. Putting fresh product on top of old product is always wrong but I know what people do at the table, I always ask for packets. lol.
