There’s one nagging complaint I have about hotel breakfast spreads – and frankly, I’ve seen this equally occur as many times at airport lounges, too: you can’t put something needing to be kept cold immediately next to a toaster or something that is to be kept hot.
Let me explain. Hotels have this consistent habit of placing cream cheese containers right next to toasters. Sure, I get it is meant to be convenient… but what inevitably happens is that the cream cheese becomes hot and spoils. All because it is kept next to a hot toaster.
Hotels need to learn some basic food safety here. Things that are to be kept cold need to be separated from things that are to be kept hot, and common sense needs to be used in interpreting that a toaster will inevitably making anything surrounding it warm as well. Don’t place cream cheese, butter and other perishables right next to something that will cause them to spoil.
