I have two dream kitchens. One is outfitted with a bevy of Sub-Zero appliances, and one features matching lemonade yellow retro-modern appliances. Realistically, however, I'd settle for a brand-new refrigerator from this cluster.

From beer-launching fridges to iPod-compatible tech centers, the refrigerator has assumed its role as the kitchen's team captain. There are portable fridges for picnics and backyard barbecues as well as behemoth refrigerators that organize digital media, brew coffee and store your food safely.
