Presently I keep them out of the fridge. Really fresh eggs don't make good boiled eggs as they are hard to peel, so should I want to set some eggs aside to age for a week, where should I keep those? Heather Ransom, Bolton, UK Always buy fresh, free-range and,if your budget can stretch to it, organic eggs in small quantities.
Keep them out of the fridge and test for freshness by popping them into a glass of water before you cook them. If they sink,they are still fresh. If they float, they're off. This is because the air pocket inside gets bigger as the egg deteriorates. My Dad was brought up on a farm and this was their standard way of checking egg freshness. Jackie Hamill, Birmingham, UK I worked as a chef for many years and had large amounts of eggs and they were always in the store room not a fridge.
If you fridge them they will spit at you when frying them. Happy days.

Ken Malin, Blackpool, Lancashire I don't know anything about egg storage. I'm just astonished that people from the UK talk about whether you should keep eggs in the chiller. In the UK, room temperature is the same temperature as the chiller! So now wondering where I keep my normal supply this was for a birthday party brunch.
More confused than ever, as been led to believe they stay out of the fridge. Will buy less, leave out and use quickly. When there's only one or two left, its topped up with another half dozen, not taking any notice of old from new. We may just be extremely lucky but in 50 years of marriage we've never experienced having a bad one. Our eggs come from various stores, shops or farms and always taste good. P Kelly, Los Gallardos, Spain I suggest the loft for the perfect egg storing space and temperature , trust me its worth the effort Alex Mcluskie, Northchurch, UK i worked on an egg producing farm for 5 years.
There were 50, birds there and not at any time were any eggs stored in a fridge,we once stored some in an open sided barn on pallets of 9 boxes each box with 30 dozen in for 6 weeks in the middle of summer but they were in the shade and we turned them upside down each week.
Egg yolks gradually move in the white until they touch the inner membrane that is when they go bad so turning them stops them reaching the shell. Hens lay eggs and the embryonic chicks develop perfectly satisfactorily over a period of 21 days. Little bacteria gets into the egg, even with an incubation temperature higher than room temperature while the hen sits on it. One can conclude that eggshells will maintain integrity in room temperature for at least 21 days. However, at low temperatures say, in a fridge , the outer mucoprotein cuticle which behaves like wax covering the shell dries and shrinks, exposing the some 17, pores in the calcium carbonate shell.
As the cuticle is soluble in water, you shouldn't wash eggs before storage either. By far the largest contributing factor, however, is the number of bacteria that has access to the egg and, contrary to belief, there is still a large number of bacteria in the fridge. In summary, keeping the fridge clean, or eggs in their box, or a clean porcelain chicken love it! Our stores do not keep eggs out either.

They are all stored in a chilled shelving unit that also stores cheese and other items that should be refrigerated. I've never had a rotten egg from a refrigerator but I have had plenty that were bad that had been left out. The chicken or the egg or the fridge? I like the supermarket answer above about storing them at room temp. Mind you i haven't bought supermarket eggs for years. I think fridge is probably best and get them out a while before use or bring them round in some tap water then use.
Whatever you do enjoy your eggs. Store eggs in a cool, dry place, ideally in the fridge. Keep eggs apart from other foods. Clean the storage area regularly. We had chickens and didn't refrigerate their eggs. Temperatures back home ranged from about 4 degrees to 40 degrees. Eggs purchased from the supermarket, corner store, or elsewhere were always kept chilled, so we refrigerated these.

I am going camping in a cool, dry place, which is why I'm inquiring. I think I'll buy farm fresh and keep them at room temperature 18 degrees. Malcolm Kyle, Adageville Senseland Several mentions of condensation or water 'getting into the egg' and causing spoilage. That is not what is happening. There is a natural coating on the outside of an egg that protects against bacteria. Water removes this layer, thus allowing bacteria to enter. That is why you should never wash an egg. Total waste of your precious hours.
Jun 11, Diana rated it did not like it. Simply put, Tim Scott tries to be Douglas Adams but in a run-down city in the future and with a plot that was confusing and left me disconnected from the characters. I would recommend this book to no one. I really loved this book. It's totally bizarre, but it all makes sense, works together with itself, and there aren't wasted words. The littlest things come back around later in the story.
I think everyone needs to read this book. Jun 02, Sherron rated it did not like it. Forced silliness is not funny and sort of pisses me off. However, a different homage, Love in the Time of Chickens, is funny and typical Wodehouse, and worth a read. Nov 05, Alex rated it did not like it.
Felt like cheap generic Douglas Adams. The kind of book where a ridiculous situation is set up and never explained at all and we are just supposed to be okay with it and never question it. Like "look at me I'm so quirky I'm going to be ridiculous and you have to go with it! Jan 20, Marcy Guenette rated it did not like it. Should have quit quarter of the way in - wish I had.

Part 3, alas, fell apart, leaving me feeling all sorts of Other than the protagonist, Huckleberry Lindbe It's not often that a book leaves me as uncertain as this one does. Other than the protagonist, Huckleberry Lindbergh, the characters are more hints, or sketches, of characters--in a couple of cases, a hint of a sketch--rather than fully-developed characters. Given that this is a thriller and a fairly satirical one at that , it works, we don't need complete backstories. Fridges is about the plot and the world Scott's imagined, not people. This is a world where the Nanny State has run amok, drunk on marketing.
In part of their benevolent -ish efforts to protect the citizenry, they've developed technology to listen to moods, and search, print, and erase hours worth of memory anything more than that will likely lead to severe damage. No idea what that was all about. And that's where he lost me. I'm still giving it three stars for the fun leading up to that tho'. Sep 27, Alan rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Diehard fans of British humour. This frankly mediocre novel struck me as being too much betwixt and between - it has far too many peculiar, surreal elements and attempts at humor to be a serious work, but it's far too morose to be especially funny.
It's certainly possible to be funny while depicting miserable events - Douglas Adams, after all, began with the destruction of the Earth - but if that's what Tim Scott no relation is attempting here, it's undermined by the genuine sadness of its protagonist, Huck short for Huckleb This frankly mediocre novel struck me as being too much betwixt and between - it has far too many peculiar, surreal elements and attempts at humor to be a serious work, but it's far too morose to be especially funny.

Which is a goofy name, really, too goofy for an ex-cop whose wife died eight years ago. And so on, back and forth from misery to laughter.
This inconsistency in tone may well have been intentional, but for me it meant that I could neither let go and enjoy the things that happened to Huck as comedy nor just give in and cry along with him. It was also rather difficult for me to suspend disbelief and get into the story when there was such a great contrast between the book's setting in "New Seattle," somewhere on the western side of North America, a brash, young American city constructed to resemble its predecessor and the very British vocabulary and tone of its characters' conversation.
I certainly did enjoy the book to some extent - the funny bits were funny enough to elicit an occasional snort, and I did find myself caring about Huck's predicament once the story really got rolling - but I would suggest reading more Tom Holt Expecting Someone Taller et sequelae or Robert Rankin Armageddon: The Musical and so on before picking up this one.
May 08, Clay Kallam rated it it was ok Shelves: sf-fantasy. It would take much more skill than Scott presently possesses to pull this off, and though there are successful moments, enjoying this book essentially comes down to getting the jokes. Some are obvious the sentient refrigerators and coffee tables have some very good lines , but others are more obscure.
If that sounds appetizing, by all means visit New Seattle and its focus on keeping its residents from bumping into sharp corners. Jul 23, Lana. For someone who doesn't have a lot of sci-fi under my belt, Love in the Time of Fridges reads like a collision of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Bourne Identity, and various fictional dystopias. But not necessarily in a good way. There were many moments of laughter the fridges steal the show like a good animated Disney sidekick; the safety signs within new Seattle, plus the "taxi" messages , excitement, suspense and action plenty of chase scenes , and horror memory wipes; plug in feeds For someone who doesn't have a lot of sci-fi under my belt, Love in the Time of Fridges reads like a collision of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Bourne Identity, and various fictional dystopias.
There were many moments of laughter the fridges steal the show like a good animated Disney sidekick; the safety signs within new Seattle, plus the "taxi" messages , excitement, suspense and action plenty of chase scenes , and horror memory wipes; plug in feeds into the back of one's neck; the feelings of powerlessness. But they fail to blend in a way that makes the overall story cohesive. In this case the whole seems less than the sum of its parts. But the parts are worth reading for their individual brilliance.

This is another one I would never have finished in book form. Even listening I spent most of the time trying to figure out what was going on and where the author was going with the story. In the end it is a romance but a romance with a lot of satire in the story. The world building was unusual.
New Seattle had appliances that talked, a mayor who was using his position to scare the populace into thinking only of safety and our hero who just stumbled into the whole mess. This journey never looked This is another one I would never have finished in book form.
This journey never looked like a romance headed to any destination.. If you like satire this book is for you. Aug 25, Michael the Girl rated it really liked it Shelves: speculativefiction. Love in the Time of Fridges gets an extra star just for the title. This pseudo-noir is fun and light, though it lacks the sort of jammed packed humor that Pratchett, Adams and Fforde would have shoved in there.
