Fire And Ice / Refrigerator

Fire And Ice
Fire And Ice

In my opinion, the refrigerator is used to preserve food, so it is convenient for users to eat food again. Now the refrigerator has two main functions, freezing and keeping fresh. When using frozen layer of food takes time to melt, cause unnecessary waste of time.Thus it may prolong the dinner time, and late dinner will cause digestive and health problems.
I want to increase that thawing function area outside the frozen and fresh-keeping function area, which can be controlled by the mobile phone APP.
In this way, when we remove the food, we can proceed directly to the next step. Save cooking time.
