Hygiene and functionality to better preserve

The kitchen, is one of the places where hygiene and organization of the spaces, require the maximum planning commitment, in order to avoid a number of malfunctions that, with time passing, can affect even the health of those who live in these spaces.

For those who use the kitchenIl progetto di una moderna cucina continuously, and have little time for the necessary activities that must be carried out in it, it is essential to optimize the work that has to be done in the kitchen.

The use of the word work, should not make you smile, because on my opinion the functional organization of the kitchen, and especially the management of all its parts in a practical and hygienic way, involves a big commitment.

Among the various activities that are carried out in the kitchen, the storage of food supplies, it is of paramount importance.

The preservation of Un esempio di conservazione tradizionale food supplies, is a delicate task to be carried out with method and rationality, in order to preserve both the safety of the place from the hygienig-sanitary point of view, and the functionality of each part of it.

If we focus on the amount of supplies that often, because of poor preservation or of a storage place not located where it would suit the nature of the food, is thrown away, there is a greater need not to neglect the problem.

Why should we preserve well

If an unespected guest should enter in your kitchen, he would certainly know where to find food like milk, cheese, fresh meat, etc.., because their status of perishable goods, they require to be stored in the refrigerator.

This happens because all what does not look perishable, is stored in the most disparate and not always in the same containers, for the only purpose of taking up those scraps of free space they can recover.

This condition of things has two major consequences: loss of time, waste of money and I would also add moments of great nervousness with the result of giving up the search of the product that we were looking for.

You can fix this situation regardless of the style and the type of kitchen you have; in fact, if you are about to buy a new kitchen, the advice is to give equal importance to the fridge and cupboard for food where to store what is less perishable.
