Re: Hot food in the fridge?
Thanks all for confirming.
A friend was helping me with a BBQ the other day and we had a debate as she thought it was a good idea to put the boiled baby potatoes on the fridge to cool down. I didn't feel this would be good for the other food and fridge but she was saying she does it all the time with no problems.
In the end she agreed with my suggestion of using cold water, which worked a treat.
But the discussion led to some googling which comes up with lots of contradictory advice. Some advice now is that you should put hot food into the fridge right away to prevent germs multiplying. But that just feels all wrong. Apparently it's common practice in some countries, including Canada.
