At install: After the refrigerator is delivered and set in place, we recommend allowing it to remain unplugged for 24 hours so the refrigerant, motor oil, and other liquids inside it can settle. Those often slosh out of place during shipping, delivery, and install, which leaves the system incapable of holding set temperatures. Before starting the 24-hour rest period, use a bubble level to ensure the unit is completely level, using shims or adjustable casters, if provided, to prep that point. Uneven refrigerators can have similar issues with internal liquids being out of place.
â¢ RELATED QUESTION
how much stronger is a lager beer vs light?
I agree that it's a trick question, but not all beers are lagers. Beer is classified as either ales (fermented at room temperature) or lagers (fermented under refrigeration). By 'light beer' I am assuming you mean Bud Light, Miller Lite, Coors Light, Nati Light, etc. Almost all of the light beers I can think of are pilsners (in the lager family). Therefore, most light beers are lagers. So technically the question does not make sense. The typical light beer (examples above) are right around 4.2%. The other 'lager' beers I believe you are referring to (Coors, Bud, MGD, High Life, etc) are around 5% or so.
Does food at room temperature spoil faster if refridgerated beforehand?
The short answer is no, that is a myth. Food spoils because of chemical breakdown and microorganism activity, both of these are slowed considerably by refrigeration. When you take food out of the refrigerator and it warms up these chemical and microbial processes speed up again, but they do not work faster because the food was previously refrigerated.Some foods should not be refrigerated, like bananas and avocados, but that's a different question.
Please,does anyone know any Lactose free Milk in Powdered form.?

is it normal for my electricity bill to be $230?
Here is an example of what is happening to your apartment on the inside. The exterior of your apartment is an urban heat island and the heat transfers back inside the building. You will see why any air conditioning runs forever and A/C is really refrigeration. (same as opening your refrigerator to cool the apt) A/C is a big electrical load and if it never shuts off, you are paying
Cocktail recipes for a big group?
You can still make some delicious classic cocktails like the Cosmopolitan, Margarita or Manhattan in bulk...make what some refer to as "Bottled Cocktails". Simply mix the desired cocktail with proportions to fill a large decanter or, even better, an empty bottle fitted with a pourer. A little water will need to be added to make up for ice that would normally be melted when the cocktail is mixed in a shaker or mixing glass. You can make several Bottled Cocktails in bottles fitted with pourers which allows your guests to easily access different drinks while you do not worry about a big mess! Bottled Cocktails can be made a few days before the gathering and stored without refrigeration, granted you do not add the water until a few hours before the party when you will chill them.
How to make a layered cake?
Just invert them on a cooling rack. Let them come to room temp, putting them in the fridge creates more moisture. It makes you have crumbs in the frosting. When they are cooled, frost them, and if the frosting requires refrigeration, then you put it in. After you are done.
Is there a way to pack cookies to last while being mailed without freezing?
Well, I think it depends on the ingredients. If the cookies have fruit in them or any fresh ingredients they wont last that long, but if they are the chocolate kind, oatmeal or that kind they should be able to last a good 10 days without refrigeration. Hope this helps!
Less sweet / lower sugar alternative to icing?
My favorite choice is an Italian meringue. Italian meringue is whipped egg whites with still-hot simple syrup added. The addition of hot syrup cooks the egg whites, making it quite safe to eat without additional cooking. The drawback is that it does not keep as well as a buttercream, and will require refrigeration if you are not going to eat it same day
In a common household what burns the most energy?
Space heating, by far. Other major users of energy are hot water heating, refrigeration, and lighting
why can organic milk stay of of the fridge?
if it comes in an aseptic package from the store and is not refrigerated there,then it can be out of the fridge until you open it. Otherwise, all milk, organic or not needs to be refrigerated. Organic simply means the cows it came from did not eat foods treated with herbicides or pesticides and the animals also did not ingest antibiotics or hormones. None of that has to do with refrigeration.
What can I bring with me on vacation to cook for dinner that does not need to be kept cold on the way there?

Any kind of fresh veggies and fruit do not need to be kept cold. Of course there is always Spam. Cheese can go without refrigeration for a day. Make macaroni and cheese. Rice with broccoli and cheese in it...
is my worcester sauce bad now?
Worcestershire sauce contains anchovies, and requires refrigeration after opening. Buy a new bottle
I like soy milk. Which brand do I buy? Where should I buy it? What's its shelf life? Do I refrigerate?
I personally prefer the Costco brand (Kirkland). If you dont' have a Costco, try 8th Continent (most of the major grocery stores carry it in my area). I personally HATE the Silk brand... but the Costco ones I can actually drink plain... it tastes very similar to regular milk. How long it lasts depends on where you buy it... it has an expiration date on there, but depending on how much the store sells, sometimes it's a month, sometimes it's two months. Most bottles say its' good for TEN DAYS after opening though. All of it needs refrigeration after it's opened, but there are certain types (sold in a carton/box rather than a milk-carton or jug) that can be kept on the shelf for a very long time (several months or more) before opening. These are usually found in the same area as other non-perishable health foods like organic cereals and other organic/veggie boxed goods.
What to do with Salami?
I do not think it needs refrigeration, but it would not cause any harm. I have a very small fridge so I do not put anything in it that I do not need to, but salami would not be around more than a couple of days in my house. I like to eat salami straight. It's a great snack! You can also put it in an antipasto salad - a little lettuce, a little tomatoes, some good Italian cheeses, olives, roasted peppers, pickled hot peppers, maybe a couple of other types of sausage. Drench it it olive oil and a little red wine vinegar. I am not Italian so that may not be 100% authentic, but you can look it up. It also works as a sandwich meat.
How can Kraft ranch dressing sit on store shelves w/o being refrigerated?
The product is processed, yes (canned, not vacuum packed, although a vacuum is created when the contents cool down inside the sealed bottle), but, the milk used is UHT pasteurized, which makes it shelf stable without refrigeration, and the eggs are also pasteurized, killing any bacterial pathogens. Even after opening, that dressing will be good for a few months, stored in the refrigerator
How to cook in college?
You wo not be able to *cook* without some kind of heating device (although you did not mention electric devices for putting in water in mugs etc to heat liquids). As mentioned a solar oven could work, but that probably would not be suitable for your life at this point. (Btw though, most dorm rooms allow electric microwave ovens and lots of things can be cooked in them and can get quite creative.) You could always buy pre-cooked foods though or pre-cured ones (salami, pickles, etc) or others that do not need refrigeration or do not need it for at least a few days. Or you could go somewhere else to cook and/or to plug in electric heating devices or use built-in ones to "cook" your food.
Will heating breastmilk in a pot of boiling water destroy its nutrients and the anti-bodies in the breastmilk?
Breast milk and formula are pretty different, no it will not do anything to the formula, but yes to breast milk. Heating the breast milk will destroy any nutrients that have not already been diminished by refrigeration or freezing. Heat it up to about room temperature if you have to chill then reheat breast milk. Breast milk can be stored at room temperature for about 8 hours without it having any affects on the milk so long as the bottles are properly sealed and handled

Would really appreciate a serious answer! How to store a fondant covered chocolate biscuit cake?
I would freeze the biscuit cake until the time you will be putting on the fondant icing just before giving the cake to the client. Give yourself at least 2 hours. The cake will thaw before giving it to the client and be fresh without refrigeration, after applying the fondant. It should all work that way.
Does cereal with water taste good?
Why do not you just try it? Also you sound like you are in college. Buy a minifridge second-hand. You can not survive without a cold drink in summer. Also you need it for basic food like dairy and other stuff that needs refrigeration.

What are some of your favorite cheeses, and their origins and histories?
Easy Cheese is the trademark for a processed cheese product distributed by Kraft Foods, also referred to as aerosol cheese, spray cheese or simply Cheese in a Can, and is a descendant of squeeze cheese (a semi-solid cheesefood from the 1970s packaged in a squeezable plastic tube). It comes packaged in a pressurized can, much like canned whipped cream and does not require refrigeration. Easy Cheese has its own entry in Sterns' Encyclopedia of Bad Taste. It was originally marketed from 1965-84 as Nabisco Snack Mate.
