How long to wait before storing food in your new Samsung refrigerator

Last Update date : Feb 03. 2024

Quick answer

The excitement of getting a new refrigerator is undeniable. However, it's important to exercise a little patience. You should wait approximately 2 hours before placing food in your new Samsung refrigerator to ensure it reaches the optimal temperature.

Additionally, it’s possible to store a hot dish in the refrigerator, but be aware that this can lead to condensation and a temporary spike in energy consumption as the fridge adjusts to the temperature change. To mitigate this, it’s best to wait about 30 minutes for the dish to cool down before refrigeration. It’s crucial, however, to not exceed 2 hours before refrigerating to avoid harmful bacteria growth.

Engineered by Samsung’s expert team, these refrigerators are equipped with advanced technology that allows them to cool down in as little as 2 hours.
