Why do all fridges have to be box shaped? A skinny fridge would take up less room and use less energy. Everything would be within easy reach with the skinny fridge.

Define "skinny."

Well, I imagine spherical would be even more efficient, but it'd roll away when you close the door.

Skinny would be half the width of a standard fridge.

Oh, the beer. I admitted I didn't get out enough and modified my post.

Only low-fat, diet food can fit in the skinny fridge.

I want Twiggy to pitch the fridge to consumers.

I doubt she could lift one.

why do they have to be white, or silver, for that matter? Build me a tartan fridge & you have customer 1.

Cameron of Erracht is the only Cameron civilsed man should consider. The splintering of Clan Cameron has become like something out of Nonconformist America, with a number of hideous yellow and purple neoplaids proliferating. Rumours of a Cameron of Diaz on the way.

And unfortunately no range of tartans is complete with Officers Blackwatch, I reluctantly concede.

It would be cool to have a fridge that was only about as wide as door frame, brushed silver with a silver handle, it sits in a recess in the wall and slides outwards like a sliding door, this can only be used to hold bottles and thin things that can fit on the shelves inside the frame, most things kept in a fridge probably could.

I saw a combination fridge/oven recently. Quite a silly idea.

Actually, a narrow fridge has more exterior surface area, and is therefore less energy efficent. (Fishboned.)

And don't forget the ((2r)^3 - (4/3(pi)r^3)) wasted space around this "spherical fridge" of yours. Let r = the radius of this spherical fridge.
