A refrigerator is one of the first ways to store food since the advent of Homo sapiens. Thanks to this method, people have learned to store and stock up most of the food for future use. But not every product is suitable for refrigerators.

Cheese

These situations don’t happen often, but if you suddenly decide to put excess hard cheese in the refrigerator, stop! After thawing, the product will acquire a loose texture and quickly begin to crumble into pieces. With soft cheeses, another problem may arise.

They contain a lot of liquid, which crystallizes at sub-zero temperatures, depriving the cheese of smoothness and uniformity.

Eggs

Few people think of freezing boiled eggs. But it may be that you decide to freeze a dish that includes boiled eggs. After defrosting, the eggs will become rubbery and may acquire an unpleasant odor. Do not freeze raw eggs either. This is because the liquid inside the egg begins to expand, the shell can crack and allow bacteria to access the product itself.

But there is an interesting life hack with frozen raw eggs. If you put an egg in the freezer for several hours, then peel it and chop it, you can fry very small scrambled eggs. The only negative is that the protein after defrosting can be harsh.
