Fridges are cooling compartments which house all raw ingredients required for cooking. They require a direct electrical connection. Cooks will bring the ingredients from the deliveries area and store them inside a fridge.

Though a required in a kitchen, fridges do not appear to serve any actual purpose for preservation of food. They are merely storage units for food.

Fridges can only store two boxes of ingredients.


  • Cooks will take ingredients from the fridge 4 hours before mealtime.
  • If all of the fridges are full, packaged ingredients will be placed on the floor.
