Storage is one of the main problems when it comes to food and beverages— you have to fit all your produce, spreads, leftovers, and other easily spoilable items into the refrigerator. Not to mention you’d also have to occasionally fit entire cakes in the ref to keep it from melting and help it stay in its original shape.
