What is the ideal temperature for my fridge?

We’re pretty sure that you already know that a fridge works by slowing down the growth of bacteria in your food products. Up in the freezer the job is to totally stop bacteria completely by freezing them solid. We would freeze everything if we could, but some foods don’t take to freezing very well. Fresh veggies and fruits, milk and eggs are just a few of the foods that you can’t freeze. Also, imagine having to wait for a block of ice to thaw each time you wanted a glass of cold water!
So, you want your refrigerator to be cold, but not so cold that it freezes things. The preferred temperature is somewhere between 1.7 to 3.3 degrees C. Anything higher and foods will spoil too quickly, not to mention cause food poisoning problems. Anything lower and freezing becomes a problem. In terms of settings, setting it to 4 on a scale of 10 will usually achieve the right temperature for most fridges that are reasonably stocked.
