Refrigerator Made Out of Clay Does Not Require Energy to Cool Food


An Indian entrepreneur developed a refrigerator made out of clay, an invention that people can use to store and keep cool their food without using energy at all. Mansukhbhai Raghavbhai Prajapati, a Gujarat-based potter, created this natural MittiCool refrigerator in order to offer an alternative to people from the rural areas, since often they are unable to afford a conventional fridge.
The MittiCool fridge uses the natural cooling effect of water evaporation which keeps vegetables fresh for a long period, even for a week. Furthermore, it is possible to store milk for up to 3 days in it. This fridge is equipped with two shelves: one for vegetables and fruits, and one for storing milk.



The best thing about this invention is that it supposedly preserves the original taste of the food, besides being very affordable. Moreover, it does not run on electric power, which makes it work even in cases of power outages.

    Does it work in climates with high humidity???

    • Tom says:

      No, it would not be efficient as cooling can only occur as a result of water evaporation from the surface of the clay fridge body, and during times of high humidity this does not occur effectively.

    • david says:

      Since it is based on evaporative cooling, there will be a direct reduction in its cooling efficiency as humidity increases

    Brilliant Idea, so proud of this development as my origins are Prajapati same as this young man , my grandfather was a potter in Gujarat until he gave it up and learned carpentry and went to Africa to work. There I saw pottery being done by relatives and was forever fascinated by it.
    Is there any way of making this here in UK or are you exporting it?
