We’ve always admired the will Tony Stark quickly found in IRON MAN to leave the world a better place than when he came into it. Not that we’d be ungrateful for putting his life on the line to save all of existence from Loki, the Skrulls and Ultron even after getting a great big shrapnel hug from one of his own bombs, but we can’t help feeling like he missed a big proponent of greater happiness and peace in our time: snacks.
Seriously, all that limitless R&D capacity at Stark Industries, and nobody has ever just casually suggested, “You know how you offered that complimentary pneumatic cooler with every Jericho missile purchase of $500 million or more? Well, why can’t we have a suit that delivers food on demand?
If this is as close as we ever get to Mark III armor with onboard salami, we can live with that. This 3D-molded Iron Man mini fridge, like the battle-ready gear that inspired it, goes anywhere it’s needed. Measuring 7 1/2″ wide x 11″ tall x 12” deep with a convenient carry handle and eyes that light up with an on/off switch, this fits as conveniently beneath a desk as it does tucked discreetly into a bottom filing cabinet drawer or even on a vehicle’s passenger-side floodboards.
Here’s the kicker: calling it a “fridge” doesn’t really do this handy little item justice. Sure, it can cool six 12-oz. cans of your choice beverage down to 45° F, but should you need to keep something warm for a bit, it can also heat food and drink alike to a toasty 140° F.
Between this, mugs and cookie jars, we look forward to the day our entire kitchen is powered by Stark Industries.
