Whenever a fridge door is opened, cold air flows out and warm air flows in; the more often the door is opened, the more heat has to be pumped out again.
Why not have a fridge (or freezer for that matter) built like a glovebox ? Anyone who's ever handled biohazard materials, dangerous chemicals or
nuclides will be familar with these; a double walled enclosure with a pair of thick flexible gloves protruding through.
Add a small "airlock" hatch and items can be passed into or out of the enclosure with the minimum exchange of outside air, thus reducing the requirement for cooling.

||Just as long as you don't spill the milk.
||I just cleaned out our fridge. I'm always amazed at the bio-hazardous things that grow in the cold and dark. Anything that makes handling it a bit safer gets an automatic bun.
||Baked I'm afraid, my cousin has one (it also dispenses ice and 2 chilled drinks). The result is that almost every item in the fridge is crammed into the easy access area.
||My glovebox gets chilled when the Aircon is active - does that count?
||Ohhhh.. Okay.. I thought this was an idea to make you car's glove-box into a fridge. This is much more complicated, almost over-complicated; BUN
