Posted by k2appliances5 on May 13th, 2020

Let’s turn back the clocks to the primitive human ages when the idea of storing foods for longer hours without spoiling wasn’t even a thought. 

Whatever type of food was hunted and collected was consumed. 

Fast forward, hunting for food was lessened and people found different ways to keep food fresh. 

Natural sources such as streams and caves were a great way to cool the food. As time progressed, other solutions came into the light including storing food in cooler locations such as cellars or clay containers, holes in the ground and nooks in wooden walls. 

Sometimes, ice houses were also built underground or as insulated buildings to store ice and keep food cold in summer.

Enter 1800s and the idea of artificial refrigeration started to take shape and over the centuries has become the necessity we have today.
