The tradition of keeping products in the cold has existed since the ancient Persians. According to historical data, this was in 1000 BC. The Romans, Jews, and Greeks used various tricks to keep their food fresh. In the 19th century, ice boxes began to be used – ice was carefully laid in them. In fact, this is the first analogue of the refrigerator.

Scottish professor William Cullen first invented the refrigeration machine in 1755. The problem was that it didn’t produce enough ice. Over time, people have tried different technologies, and today we have devices that store food for a long time.
