Refrigerator

The appliance keeps your food/beverages fresh and cold.Carl Paul Gottfried von Linde invented the refrigerator in 1876. The fundamentals of refrigeration are also at work in another important household appliance: the air conditioner.

Toaster

This applience toast your food. Charles Strite invented the toaster in October 1893

Appliances that heat up, such as a hair dryer, a clothes iron, toaster, electric toaster oven, or an electric space heater all work on the same idea. They change electrical energy to heat energy.

The devices all plug into a source of electricity. Electric current runs from your wall socket down the wire and into the appliance.
