Despite our being several years into the 21st century, household appliances remain resolutely old-fashioned, dull and, well, square. Until now! We don't know what inspired the maverick genius responsible for the Chilli*Egg to break with tradition and design an ovoid fridge (possibly massive quantities of hallucinogenics) but we are glad he did! Hopefully the Chilli*Egg will usher in a golden age of futuristic, Jetsons-style 'white goods' with which we can furnish our space-age bachelor pads. Or bedrooms.
In addition to its sleek, eyecatching form (which will surely conjure up fond memories of 'Mork and Mindy' among people of a certain age) the Chilli*Egg ups the funky-factor by sporting superfly blue-glowing LED-lit side panels. As Jeremy Clarkson would say, given half a chance, if this fridge was a car, it would be a superfast, Max-Powered Astra hatchback pocket rocket. Rather wonderfully, the Chilli*Egg comes complete with a car cigar-lighter adaptor which means you can keep a four-pack of lager, a couple of bottles of wine, or loads of Mars Bars nicely chilled on the way back from the shops.
But wait! There's more! In addition to it's respectable chilling credentials - and they're solid, since it can cool to 25ºC below ambient temperature - the Chilli*Egg can, at the flick of a switch, convert into a heating device, able to warm food (or drink, who are we to judge?) up to 65ºC.
So what are you waiting for? The only reason we can think of not to get a Chilli*Egg fridge is that you might come home to find a Giant Moa* perched atop it, and as they were native to New Zealand and have been extinct for several hundred years we don't think you need to worry about that.
