List of foods that should not be refrigerated

What is there not to like about a fridge and freezer? It's where you keep your leftover pizza, your mom's homemade jam, and the ice cream no one should know you have. It's a modern-day home-life miracle.

However, some foods may disagree with you, as evidenced by the wasted groceries. Want to avoid the aggravation (and the unpleasant refrigerator surprises)? Read on to find out when you should skip the cool-down and stick to the counter and cupboard instead.


Bananas require room temperature for two reasons: moderate temperatures aid in the ripening of the fruit (in case you pick up any still-green parts), and light and air slow decay.


When kept in the fridge, your coffee is more likely to absorb the flavors of the environment. Instead, store it in a well-sealed container in the pantry, out of direct sunlight.


The greatest place for this summery treat is on the counter, not in the fridge. The texture of these foods is ruined by the chilly temperatures in the fridge.


Have you ever forgotten about a jar of honey at the back of the pantry for a long time? If you keep a jar of honey in the fridge, the process accelerates, becoming honey unpleasant rapidly. Keep it in its original container in a cool, dark pantry location.


A fridge depletes the flavor of basil, rosemary, thyme, and other herbs, as well as drying them out. Instead, place them stems down in a tiny glass with a little room-temperature water and set them on the counter away from direct sunshine.


Store loaves of bread in the cupboard unless you enjoy stale, dried-out slices on your favorite sandwich.


Vegetable, olive, coconut, and other cooking oils harden quickly in the refrigerator, similar to honey. Instead, store them in your pantry on a cool, dark shelf.


Cantaloupe, watermelon, and other similar fruits aren't usually found in refrigerated cases at the grocery store, so keep that in mind while dealing with kitchen food storage issues. Melons should be kept on the counter until they are sliced up, then placed in the refrigerator.


Avocados that are really unripe have a difficult time maturing in the fridge. Leave them on the counter instead (and use them as motivation to make a bowl of guacamole).


Onions should be stored in the pantry unless they are sliced up. However, never store them near...


To keep their texture, they must also be stored at room temperature. These two aren't the best of pantry companions; the gases they emit have a tendency to hasten spoiling.


Consider how you buy garlic: on a grocery store shelf—and keep that in mind when storing it.
