IsThere a fridge, that we can program at specific date/time to unfreeze specific food


IsThere a fridge, that we can program at specific date/time to unfreeze specific food?

Coming back from trip, I would like that ham/meat/... is ready unfrozen when I am back on date, to cook them.

Does that fridge, magic, exists already?

Cheapest solution would be to buy a bunch of mini fridges and plug them into x10 units that you can then control through perl with linux.... sure you may have to turn the power on and off to get the temperature just right... but that's what the unit does already.

On your way back home from your trip, just stop by the local market and buy a fresh and unfrozen ham.
