Guide 2 Freezers

Can you imagine what food refrigeration was like before the refrigerator and freezer were invented? It involved digging holes in the ground and chipping off huge chunks of ice in the winter that you hoped would last through the summer. On the plus side, you'd eat more fresh food, but you would have had to grow it yourself. The variety that we're used to today definitely wouldn't be available to you back then.

The invention of the refrigerator (and later the freezer) in the early 20th century is one that has changed the world significantly. With the refrigerator came the ability to keep foods fresh longer than we could otherwise and the freezer allows us to freeze food almost indefinitely. Fresh vegetables and meats can be transported around the world and sold rather than families eating only what they were able to grow.

With the cost-saving appeal of buying in bulk, stand-alone freezers have quickly become a must-have appliance in the kitchen. Ice-cube trays, frozen juice and frozen dinners quickly take up all the room available in your refrigerator freezer, especially as the number of people in your household grows.
