Ok so I was having a think today and wondered, Where does everyone store eggs? Does anyone know where you are meant to store them? I always keep mine in the fridge, but I know at the supermarket they are just on the shelf and also at the egg farm so just wanted to know.

  • In the fridge. Keeps them safe from breakage.

  • in the fridge they will last longer. just remember if you buy refrigerated you cannot then store un-refridgerated as they will then spoil quicker

  • We live in North Queensland and it can get quite hot here! So ours are always in the Fridge.

  • I keep my eggs in the fridge and always have. Now supermarkets also keep in the fridge section. I think it’s personal preference tho

  • I keep mine in my pantry.
    I’ve never had an issue & my eggs always taste great.
    My partner & I were debating this not long ago so it is great to see others thoughts :)

  • In the fridge in the carton is best for eggs, especially in summer.

  • Eggs have a shelf like of about 6 weeks so check the use by date carefully. . In India, and they leave them on the kitchen bench and no one seems to get sick from them. I think it is a personal preference but I keep mine in the fridge.

  • you don’t need to store them in the fridge. We mostly have ours in the fridge as I don’t have room on the bench top for them.

  • I keep my eggs in the fridge with the carton for the use by date.

  • In the Fridge.

  • I store mine on a shelf in the kitchen but I use them quickly.
    I was told if they have been in the fridge then they must stay in the fridge.

  • They last longer if you keep them in the fridge. You just need to bring them to room temperature if you are baking. All other cooking it doesn’t matter.

  • I keep mine in the fridge and so does our supermarket on the central coast. Just need to take them out anout half hour before using for baking or meringue. Thye keep longer in the fridge.

  • I always keep ours in the fridge too..
    At our supermarkets and the fruit and veg shops also I have noticed they have them both in the fridge and on the shelves also…so I’m not sure what the correct place to store them in
