Place in a bowl or pan and submerge it in cold water.

Spread it into a thin layer on a baking tray and put it in the fridge.

Won’t that just warm up the fridge unnecessarily?

No, it won't cause any significant change to the overall temperature of your fridge.

It's perfectly fine. Just leave it out for 10 minutes on the tray and then put it in the fridge if you're that worried.

What you shouldn't do is put deep containers that are full of hot into the fridge as it won't cool fast enough. A flat tray with plenty of surface area is in the fridge is fine.

I’d still do the water method, works just as well and doesn’t waste fridge energy.

I'm convinced the cost is negligible. Either way, it still needs to go into the fridge afterwards and the compressor still gets turned on...

Not about the cost, I’ve just always grown up to not leave the fridge open and waste the cold air.

Seriously, it has no effect on the overall temperature of the fridge. The fridge is running a constant outflow of air, it won't change how it operates just because you put some warm rice in there.

The point was about warmth adding to the fridge, not just the fridge door.

How has this become an argument?

What is the point of owning a fridge if it isn't to keep food cool?

To keep it cool, not cool it down from hot.

The thing to do is to get the heat out of it quickly and then refridgerate immediately. So spreading as thin as possible / stirring and cooling with water surrounding a bowl or even just with cool air near a window works. Then the fridge can be effective in getting it quickly to a low temperature where those pecky food poisoning spores won't re-germinate.

It's not an argument, you asked if it has a negative effect on the fridge and I said no. You then mentioned the negative impact again so I corrected you again.

I never wondered about negative effects. I just don't like the idea of putting a hot mass into the fridge with other food items.
If someone else wants to do that, be my guest.

You asked if it warmed up the fridge necessarily, but hey, you do you :yy:
