Eco-friendly GreenFreeze refrigerators have been protecting the ozone for 15 years by replacing those evil CFCs and HFCs with ozone friendly butane and propane. Now they are taking green a step further and serving a dual purpose of cooling and cooking.
Of the hundreds of millions of GreenFreeze fridges out there only a small fraction actually have this dual function feature. If you are lucky to have one of these special editions you may go to bed one night with a frozen turkey in the fridge and wake up to a freshly cooked thanksgiving dinner plastered all over your wall. The special edition fridges work by leaking its combustible coolant into the food compartment, which is then ignited by the spark of the compressor turning on or off. This function lends well to breakfast as gas tends to dissipate as the fridge door is opened and closed during the day, however, as you sleep at night the gasses build up nicely.
The fridge will actually wake you up when your food is done, usually by the sound of a loud explosion but in some case by blowing a hole in your bedroom wall. The fridge also has the potential to help a household reduce overall consumption particularly if you have a midnight snacker in your family. If that early morning eater happens to wander into the kitchen at the same time that the GreenFreeze fridge decides to spontaneously cook a meal they will likely find themselves dispatched to a better place turning your family of four into a family of three reducing the amount you’ll likely consume!
They haven’t worked all the kinks out yet, so I’m not ready to call them “Green.” One problem is they are only good for cooking one meal after which you have to buy a new fridge and likely a new kitchen. Plus they have not yet quantified the amount of CO2 that is released into the atmosphere when the GreenFreeze burns a house down. Until they address these issues I am not going to be completely sold on this but we can still admire their eco innovation.
