Please note when storing in pantries

  • The pantry or cellar should be dark, well ventilated, dry and not too warm (maximum +18 ° C).
  • Do not put open goods in cupboards, boxes, pantries or cellars. Tight containers (glass or plastic) protect against oxygen and pests (e.g. moths).
  • Regularly check the inventory of closets, boxes, pantries or basements. Some products can be forgotten or lagged behind and already spoiled without being noticed. Check the best before dates regularly.
  • Fruit and vegetables that are sensitive to the cold, such as potatoes, aubergines, citrus fruits and bananas, are ideally stored in a cool room or in a cool place (maximum +18 ° C). For more information, see the seasonal fruit and vegetable calendar.
  • Store fruit and vegetables separately from each other. On the one hand, fruit can easily take on foreign smells that also negatively affect the taste (e.g. onion smell). On the other hand, the ripening gas (ethylene) released by the fruit can accelerate the ripening and aging of vegetables and thus contribute to faster spoilage.
  • Buy and store fruit and vegetables in small quantities, as vitamin losses occur during storage. Temperatures of four to eight degrees significantly reduce vitamin losses.
  • Kitchen cabinets or boxes should not be positioned in the immediate vicinity of a heat source (hotplate, stove, oven, refrigerator, etc.).
  • Maintain hygiene in closets, boxes, pantries, or basements. Clear out and wipe cupboards and boxes at regular intervals. If you wipe it with a damp cloth, let it dry or wipe it with a dry cloth. Regularly clean the basement and pantry of leftover food, crumbs and dust. Check for pests (e.g. silverfish, moths) at regular intervals. For more information, see Combating ants and moths naturally.
  • Oils are well stored in kitchen cupboards or boxes because they are protected from light there.
