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?
