How is meat best stored?

Meat belongs in the coldest place in the refrigerator: the glass plate above the crisper drawer. If meat has to be kept for a longer time, the freezer is the best solution.

Raw meat generally keeps for about three days. Minced meat is best consumed even faster. Deep-frozen meat can be kept for a few months in the freezer.

Fatty meat and sausage: 2 – 4 months

Lean meat: 8 months
