Why must we put food in refrigerator?
Food is put in refrigerator to prevent it from spoilage by the action of microbes. Rerrigeration at 5oC retards microbial growth, although with extended storage, microorganisms eventually grow and produce spoilage. Slow microbial growth at temprature below -10oC has been described, particularly with fruit juices concentrates, ice cream, and some fruits. Some microorganism are very sensitive to cold and their numbers are reduced. Thus although refrigration slows down the metabolic activity of most microbes, it does not lead to significant decrease in overall microbial populations. Still refrigeration is a convinent and popular way of store and preserving food.

It is best if you cool the food down fast by putting it in an ice bath. To do this you place the container of food in a shallow pan of ice water to bring the temp of the food …down.
Yes, although there is no particular value in doing so. Food canned properly will not readily spoil (although it should be used before the "use by" date, refrigerated or not).…. But do not freeze canned food; the water-based liquid will expand when frozen and stretch or burst the can. Also consistency of the food will be harmed.
No. Refrigeration only slows or stops bacterial growth. They will still be there when it is pulled out of refrigeration.
Putting food in the refrigerator does not kill off the bacteria. The cool temperatures only inhibit their growth.
You could, but probably easier to mix in the color before you do so.
What is the prepositional phrase in the sentence They must stop eating your food from the refrigerator or must pay you?
In the sentence ... They must stop eating your food from therefrigerator or pay you?...from the refrigerator is theprepositional clause. 1) It is followed by the preposition …FROM 2) The sentence would still make sense without the prepositionalphrase... They must stop eating your food or pay you?
You can put food in immediately. Even though it will take the refrigerator some time to cool to the temperature at which you have set it, food does not go bad instantly. The d…elay will make no difference.
no because if you can put a fork in the microwave you can put one in the refrigerator . What I have come to believe is that putting metal in the refrigerator in and of itse…lf is not a bad thing. But, if that metal is a fork or a spoon that has been in your mouth then the bacteria that was in your mouth would then continue to prosper while in the cold environment of the refrigerator. .
So that it does not get old. If you leave it out it has a better chance going to waste then it does when you have it in the refrigerator. .

A new refrigerator should ideally stand over night, to allowbubbles in the pipes to disperse.
Placing hot food inside a fridge means that the motor has to startup and keep running until the temperature returns to normal. Also,food close to the hot food may become semi-…warmed, which is notgood for preventing food poisoning. Always rapidly cool hot food(cover and place in a draught on the window sill, for instance),and put into the fridge once cold.
The growth of bacteria slows but does not stop. The food will stillspoil but at a much slower rate.
I wouldn't recommend it ! By the time the hot food has cooled (orfrozen) - it will be laden with bacteria !
