How to Accurately Measure Fridge Temperature?
Daily temperature log spreadsheets are widely used both in the industry and in homes to record temperature measurements and prevent any shifts that may be harmful to the stored supplies.
Use reliable refrigerator thermometers to accurately measure temperature in the fridge, freezer, or pantry. These devices provide the most accurate measurements at cold temperatures. To take the temperature in the freezer properly, place the thermometer between the packages with frozen food and wait for 5 to 8 hours. To measure temperature in the refrigerator, place thermometer into a vessel containing water. Check the indicators for the same time period as indicated for the freezer. By all means, keep the thermometer in storage permanently, if you wish, to facilitate refrigerator temperature logging.
The standard range to be maintained in dry storage is 50° to 70°F. The temperature in refrigerated storage must be between 36° and 40°F. In freezer storage, it is required to keep the temperature at 0°F or below. If you find out that storage in your facility does not meet the prescribed temperature conditions, regulate the settings immediately or report the situation to the responsible individual.
