The fridge is part of our everyday life in an inexplicable way. A trip to the fridge will make you happy when it’s full and disgruntled when it’s empty. It’s fair to say, some people are in a relationship with their fridge.
Whether it’s stocked with all kinds of treats or has a balance of healthy, junk and fresh food, a fridge is necessary. It comes in all shapes and sizes, from the everyday household styles to the industrial giant-sized fridge.
But did you know that a fridge was invented by a woman?
In 1914, Florence Parpart invented the modern-day electric fridge. This invention solved the age-old problem of how to preserve food. The original design looked like a small cupboard, and thankfully it has evolved to what it is today.
The next time you open your fridge, remember her name, Florence Parpart.
A round of applause!
