      Regardless of the fridge you have, everyone should have a thermometer in the refrigerator. The temperature in the fridge should be no higher than 42 degrees- which is the low end of the “danger zone” (between 42 – 140 degrees bacteria grows at an accelerated pace)

    For me it’s a television. It keeps me from going crazy and it amuses my daughter when she is playing nearby.
