About National Frozen Food Day
Domestic refrigerators became commonplace in the United States in the 1920s, although they were initially quite expensive and were only owned by wealthier families. However, as refrigeration technology improved and the price of refrigerators decreased, they became more widely available and more affordable to the general public. By the 1930s, refrigerators had become a common household appliance in the United States, and they have continued to be a staple in most homes around the world.
In the United Kingdom, domestic refrigerators were not as common until the 1950s. Prior to this, many people used ice boxes to keep their food cold, which required a daily delivery of ice to maintain the proper temperature. The widespread adoption of domestic refrigerators in the UK was aided by the availability of refrigerators that ran on electricity, which became more common after the Second World War.
