A little history:
In the 11th century, Persian physicist and chemist Ibn Sina invented the refrigerated coil, which condenses aromatic vapors. This was a breakthrough in distillation technology and he made use of it in his steam distillation process, which requires refrigerated tubing, to produce essential oils. The first known artificial refrigeration was demonstrated by William Cullen at the University of Glasgow in 1748. The American inventor Oliver Evans, acclaimed as the “father of refrigeration,” invented the vapor-compression refrigeration machine in 1805. Read more to see top 10 Refrigerators.
