Tip & How-To about Refrigerators

Keeping your eggs at their freshest

Although it is very thoughtful of refrigerator manufacturers to provide us with special containers for our eggs, did you know that eggs stay fresher in their original containers (not the hen)? Research has shown that both cardboard and styrofoam egg cartons provide identical results regarding keeping eggs at a safe temperature. To be even safer, place the styrofoam or cardboard carton in the bottom of the refrigerator, NOT THE DOOR, The door is one of the warmest places in the refrigerator and dairy products (eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, sour cream, etc.) should NEVER be stored there!

what can I use to help peel hard boiled eggs

First off, don't use very fresh eggs as the fresher they are the more they stick to the shell. Cook for 9 minutes. Drop into cold water, and wait for them to cool. Peel them under a gently running cold water tap.

How long can you store hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator?

about 1 week
Hard-cooked eggs in the shell can be refrigerated up to one (1) week. Peeled hard-boiled eggs can be stored in the refrigerator in a bowl of cold water to cover for about 1 week (change the water daily) - or in a sealed container without water (cover the eggs with damp paper towels) for the same length of time.

Does Kitcheaid Model KSRS22Q contain SO2?

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. To answer your question in a word, No there is no sulfer dioxide in any modern refrigerators that I know of. They pretty much all use a refrigerant called R134a which has been the standard for 15yrs. or so...depending in what country you reside of course, this applies to North America. You may want to contact Whirlpool (manufacturer of Kitchen Aid appliances) for more info if outside of North America. Hope that answers your question. Thank you for choosing FixYa today. Please take moment to rate the info provided. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Do you have any recipe for milk free ice cream? For lactose intollerant diet?? Perhaps Almond Milk or Soy Milk.

Here are some of the useful steps to make a milk free ice cream.
1.) Microwave the chocolate and butter-substitute for thirty seconds in a microwave-safe bowl.
2.) Add a dash of salt, and a splash of vanilla extract to taste.
3.) Put a scoop of marshmallow fluff into the bowl and stir it in thoroughly.
4.) Remove the spoon, lick it clean, and wait up to 5 minutes for your mixture to become room temperature.
5.) Place it in the freezer for 50 minutes, remove, and if it is still not frozen well, then stir it thoroughly and place it back in the freezer for another 20 minutes.
