    What’s the reason behind the pitchers of water? Cooling those down to inside fridge temperature is going to take a lot more effort than cooling their air they displace.

      They take more energy to cool initially, but they retain their temperature better than the air when you open the door. You don’t need a packed fridge, but an empty one is less efficient.

        Ahh that makes sense. Possibly a good idea to put items at the front of the shelves too. They’d slow down the air circulation when you open the door keeping already-cold air behind them.

          Great idea!
