Back to the Drawing Board

I'm sure the industrial designers behind this 1956 refrigerator had the best of intentions. Installed at the bottom of the appliance's door, the Big Bin promised unfettered access ['no fumbling, groping, or reaching'] to the vegetable crisper. But nobody said anything about bending, stooping, or squatting—one of which actions would seem necessary to use the Bin. Not to mention you'd have to step back when opening the fridge, or risk bruised shins. Then there's the issue of temperature fluctuation in the door storage. Let's just say that I'm glad the Big Bin had but a brief presence on the major appliance stage.
