TANDEM PANTRY, from Hafele
Home to everything from dry ingredients and snacks to condiments and canned foods, the pantry should be put in order so it can serve you better.
If your pantry’s a mess,
it’s time to whip it back into shape. A regular purge is a great way to discover lost and forgotten items as well as check if they are going past the expiry date.
Separate your provisions into designated categories.
For example, flour, brown sugar and other baking ingredients belong in the one category, while cereals and oats go straight to the breakfast section.
Assess the available space, and allocate suitable zones for each food category. Take note: designate most frequently used items where it’s most accessible for you, while rarely used supplies can be stowed away higher.
Labelling the categories let you locate specifically what you’re looking for; this cuts back time taken to prepare meals. Choose your weapon of choice from adhesive labels to erasable chalkboard signs.
Understand your fridge’s geography to fully utilise its capacity and keep its contents fresh for longer.
Keep jams, peanut butter, leftovers or ready-to-eat snacks at the top where the temperature is elatively warm but consistent.

It’s the coldest here, so reserve the space for food that can go bad easily such as milk, yoghurt, sour cream, as well as packaged raw meat.
There are two types: the high-humidity drawer is the moistest spot in the fridge and is great for vegetables, while the low-humidity compartment that’s sometimes marked as a crisper is meant for fruits.
As they are the warmest part of the fridge, pack items that can handle warmer conditions. This includes condiments, butter, soda and water.
It’s not just meant for raw food, the freezer can be used to store bread, pasta and grated cheese.
