Cool Idea: Stacking Fridge Keeps Shared House Peace

When I lived with housemates, the main points of contention in our shared living situation involved the kitchen. There were the piles of dirty dishes, and then there was the messy, rotten food-filled fridge. I like the idea of this stacking fridge from Electrolux, which allows people living in multiple-housemate situations to keep their personal food in each separate compartment. This would've saved me a lot of time cleaning out my housemates' way-beyond-expiration-date foodstuffs, had it been around five years ago. The fridge seems to still be in the concept stage, and I haven't turned up any information on energy efficiency yet (my guess is it's going to be an energy hog), so I can't give this design my endorsement until then. Do you live in a housemate situation? If so, would you be interested in a fridge like this, or do you think it might cause even more cleaning issues in your home?

What a great idea. When i had a roomate i used to go shopping and then all my food would be gone by the time i got home from work the next day. I hated it. I would never eat some one elses food with out asking.

Very cool looking! Would have been a help in my grad school house. One roomie's bro would come over with his friends and eat all the food... then deny it.

I wonder if it might not be such a bad thing energywise. Perhaps you can keep different compartments at different temps, and you're not letting all the cold air out of every place each time you open one door.

Wow. One of my sisters rented an apartment in college where all the roommates had their own kitchen cabinets w/ keys. It was pretty absurd.
