Here are some tips for keeping your kitchens safe and clean:
The wet environment of a sponge is the next worst offender after the kitchen sink. Microwaving and boiling are by far the two best methods for reducing the presence of bacteria. If you choose to use a sponge, be sure to disinfect and replace them often.
All Hands Under Water
Washing your hands is one of the best ways to stop the spread of food-borne pathogens. Wash before and during cooking, especially after touching raw meat and poultry.
Soap your hands up well, as the lathering action is a bit part of cleaning them, and run them under warm-hot water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
Don’t Rinse Your Meat
Always avoid rinsing raw meat and poultry. While your intentions may be to send the contaminants down the drain, you’re more likely to be spreading the potentially harmful pathogens in and around the sink.
Since brined meats do need to be rinsed before cooking, make sure to thoroughly clean the sink and surrounding areas after rinsing.
People often defrost items by placing them on their counters or in their sinks for several hours. Room-temperature defrosting is not the best practice.
Frozen food should be placed in the refrigerator on a plate or in a bowl to prevent liquid from contaminating other food. It may take up to 24 hours to fully thaw most items. Rule of thumb is 5 hours per pound.
You should periodically check your refrigerator to make sure it’s registering in a healthy range. Refrigerators should be between 35-40 degrees and your freezer should be 0 degrees or lower.
Different foods are best stored at different temperatures. You should store items such as raw meat (well-wrapped) in the coolest part of the refrigerator while produce can be stored closer to the front.
Here is a quick guide:
Fish and Shellfish
30 to 34 degrees
Meat and Poultry
32 to 36 degrees
36 to 40 degrees
38 to 40 degrees
40 to 45 degrees
