The interior of the refrigerator section is finished in white porcelain and contains shelves which may be adjusted up or down to accommodate extra-large packages or bottles. Fruit and vegetable compartments with -transparent sliding doors hold over half a bushel of fresh fruit and vegetables. On the inside of the double doors are removable and adjustable "shelves, two of which are especially designed to hold eggs. One of the doors also contains a new butter conditioner, which keeps butter at the desired spreading consistency. Extra Convenience.
