Modern Homeowners Turn to These Fridge Hacks for Quick Meal Prep
A fridge that helps you eat well while saving time and effort? Bon appétit!
With our hectic work schedules, it can be tempting to simply grab dinner from the nearest food joint there is – even if it isn’t exactly the healthiest of options. But what if we told you that preparing a delicious meal doesn’t have to be a time-consuming affair?
Take the hassle out of your weekly grind with a fridge packed with innovative features to meet your everyday lifestyle needs. Thanks to Panasonic fridge technologies that retain freshness, hygiene and flavour, meal preparation will be an absolute breeze with these time-saving hacks.
Here’s what makes Panasonic fridges the perfect all-in-one solution for every type of modern homeowner.
For those who enjoy freshly cooked meals
After a long day at work, the last thing you want is to wait for frozen cuts of meat (or fish) to thaw before you get to cooking. On the other hand, meat stored in the chiller gets soft (which makes it difficult to cut neatly) and goes bad after a few days. With Panasonic, there’s no need to choose the lesser of two evils anymore.
By soft-freezing meat at an optimum temperature of -3°C, the Prime Fresh feature allows you to cut and cook meat with ease immediately after taking it out from the fridge – no defrosting needed. What’s more, it also helps to retain freshness for up to seven days, approximately twice as long as a chiller would.
Fast and fuss-free freshly cooked meals? Yes please.
“I quite like the idea of a soft-freezing feature because you don’t have to wait for meat to thaw. It really saves you a lot of time, especially when you’re a working mom!” – Homeowner Michelle
For those who prepare batches of food in advance
If you’re someone who likes to whip up large batches of food – like stocks or even marinated meats – at once so you can just reheat them when needed, the Prime Freeze rapid freezing feature will certainly come in handy.
This nifty function has the ability to freeze food five times faster than conventional freezing, and in so doing seals in the moisture, texture and flavour of your produce.
Once frozen, simply transfer whatever you intend to cook over the next few days to the Prime Fresh compartment, so you won't need to thaw before cooking. Plus, having such a system will also free up space in the freezer!
“You can plan out what you want to cook for the week. It makes the whole process of wanting to cook simpler.” – Homeowner Cynthia
For those who can only afford to go on grocery runs once a week
As working adults, we all know it’s not feasible to be making multiple trips to the grocery store every few days (who has the time for that?). This is why it’s important to store your perishables in storage compartments that ensure optimal freshness.
For instance, Panasonic’s Fresh Safe storage is designed to keep your fruits and vegetables nice and perky within an ideal level of humidity and temperature, complete with the Ag Clean filter that gets rid of mould and bacteria so you can prepare meals with only the freshest ingredients.
“What I like most is that the fridge has a separate storage area for fruits and vegetables, and it is very large. It preserves the freshness of my groceries for a week.” – Homeowner Yelin
For those nursing their newborns
This one’s for the mamas! All young parents will know that it’s important to fill up your baby at regular feeding intervals to aid in healthy development, but it’s hard for working mums to stay on track with the pumping schedule on a busy day. If you’re heading to work or simply want your partner to feed so you can catch up on sleep, you can store freshly expressed breast milk in the fridge for future use when you’re not around.
To ensure that it’s safe for your baby, Panasonic fridges are equipped with nanoeX technology that keeps nasty bacteria at bay.

If you’re giving your baby formula milk instead, remember to cool it down to a safe temperature so you don’t risk scalding your little one. Prime Freeze’s Cool Down mode comes in handy to help you save on cooling time – particularly useful when your baby gets hungry in the middle of the night!
For those who are last-minute party planners
Hosting a gathering but forgot to put drinks in the fridge or prepare dessert? Panasonic’s got you covered with Prime Freeze’s Quick Cooling and Cool Down functions that reduce the time needed to bring your drinks and/or food down to the desired temperature – whether it’s to quickly chill a bottle of wine, cool down a hot apple pie right fresh from the oven, or to chill a fruit platter in minutes.
