A beverage fridge, also known as a beverage cooler or a bar fridge, is a compact refrigerator specifically designed to store and cool beverages. These fridges are typically smaller in size than a traditional kitchen fridge and are often used in home bars, game rooms, or outdoor spaces.
Common beverages stored in a beverage fridge include soda, beer, wine, and other alcoholic drinks. They are generally set at a lower temperature range than a kitchen refrigerator, to keep the drinks cool and ready to serve.
What can you store in a beverage fridge?
Can milk be stored in a beverage fridge?
Milk can technically be stored in a beverage fridge. However, it is not recommended as it is not the ideal storage condition for milk. Milk is a perishable item that needs to be stored at a specific temperature range to maintain its quality and prevent spoilage.
The ideal temperature range for storing milk is between 33-40°F (0.5-4°C), which is cooler than the typical temperature range of a beverage fridge. Most of the beverage fridges are set at a higher temperature range of around 42-50°F (5-10°C) to keep the drinks cool and ready to serve.
Storing milk at a higher temperature can lead to bacterial growth, spoilage, and a decrease in its quality. It is recommended to store milk in a main kitchen refrigerator where the temperature is set at or below 40°F.
