The Necessities Before electric refrigerators became available ice ...
The Necessities Before electric refrigerators became available ice chests were used to keep food fresh. The height of this ice chest is 600mm, the width is 400mm and the depth is 1020mm. In ice chests like this one a large block of ice was placed into the top section, allowing cold air to filter down into the section below and preserve the food placed on the shelves or racks. The foods that were most likely to be spoiled were placed in the very bottom of the chest where the temperature was lowest. Any highly flavoured food was placed onto the top shelf to minimise odours tainting other food. Compare this ice chest to the refrigerator you have at home. 1. What are the main differences? Think about the size (you may want to ask for help to measure your refrigerator at home with a tape measure), what it is made of, the colour and other features. 2. Are there any similarities? 3. What foods are stored in the bottom of your refrigerator? What is stored on the top shelves?
