Rant about British life, as illustrated by refrigerators.


I love ya’all, Britain.  You have history, amazing architecture, and everyone sounds like a random Mary Poppins character.  Adorable.  But there is one thing about you, Britain, and London in particular, that I cannot abide, and that is your refrigerator.

I get that space is at a premium.  I get that many flats are one-person, so they don’t need too much.  But this is not a home fridge, Britain.  This is a dorm fridge.  This is something 18 year old kids use under their loft beds in the US to keep Pepsi and pilfered cheap beer in, not actual food.  That container of juice isn’t 3 litres, it’s like a tiny single portion serving size, and it barely fits on the shelf.  This is sad and wrong.  NO, PEOPLE.  WE CAN DO BETTER.





I’ve been building a dream-home in my mind, and I have to go with the new Panasonic fridge-freezer for my chilling and freezing needs.  For just a little more height and width, I get massive cooling technology, eco-friendly power usage (rated A++ from the EU!), some magical thing called a Vitamin Safe compartment (apparently it’s like the Intensive Care Unit of crispers – put your veggies in, and pull them out fresh as when you bought them!), Hygenie Active antimicrobial technology (Blue LED light and silver filter?  Space Age!), and you can put a pint of milk in it without having to turn it sideways!  Bonus!

Now people may scoff, wondering what Panasonic, more known for their home entertainment systems, might be doing in large appliances.  While it’s true that they are the new kids on the block in European kitchens and laundry rooms, the Panasonic name is worldwide known as a badge of quality.  I think the new Panasonic fridge-freezer will do just fine.


To recap:  A++ Energy efficiency rating, space age crisper, magic anti-microbial filtration system, and actual room to store your food in, all in a sleek packaging.  With a standout reputation like Panasonic, this will stay on my Dream Home wish list for a good long while (unless, of course, Panasonic would like to send me one for an extended test, which I am more than okay with!).

    This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and
    your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too
