The Cactus is a hybrid kinda appliance, one that moves from a freezer to a refrigerator to a food warmer. Consider it as a food storage box that keeps your eatables either warm or cold, depending upon the requirement. Designed for use in nuclear households, the appliance goes against the typical principle of conducting heat from the outside to cool the inners of a fridge.
As a heat box, the temperature is maintained at 55 degrees C, which is ideal for thermal insulated for food. The frozen foods section accommodates up to three pizza boxes and the beverage compartment has been designed keeping standard bottles and cans in mind.
The Cactus scores a full ten on the design department. It’s very kawaii in looks and everything inside it has been designed keeping food specifics and usage in mind.
