To fridge or not to fridge – how should we really store eggs?

In the United States, eggs are usually kept in the fridge, while in Europe and some other parts of the world eggs are not refrigerated. Read on to find out which is the healthiest way to store eggs.

The way you should store eggs depends on the country, but if you are not sure about how they were produced, just keep them in the fridge. Note that it's a bad idea to keep eggs in a fridge door, as the eggs will experience rapid change of temperature every time you open the fridge, which will increase the risk of infections.

Which way of storing eggs do you prefer? Was this information new for you? Do you have something to add or discuss?

When I get fresh eggs from the farm I leave them on the counter & rinse them off before I use them. When I buy them at the grocery store they go in the fridge Fresh eggs last a couple weeks.

I usually keep them out of the fridge unless it's really hot don't really eat eggs that often so end up throwing them out after a week

I prefer the European way. Eggs chlorine washed don't really appeal to me.

I get my eggs directly from a producer and have been putting them in the refrigerator which I obviously don't need to . Good news as I have to remember to remove them from the fridge early so they are at room temperature before use. Good news thanks for posting . Washed eggs only go into refrigerator

At my Young age I was in Europe and Never put the Eggs in the Refrigerator ,Naw in North America we put then at the Refrigerator. I believe that the European Eggs are more Tasty

We lived for a time in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We always bought eggs at the egg market. They were kept in a room with no cooling. In the summer when the temps were upwards of 120 degrees. They never put them in a cooler place. I never knew anyone there that got sick from eating eggs.
