Marcel Audiffren was, a French priest, physicist and inventor who promoted the residential refrigerator. He served as abbot of his Cistercian monastery, and originally designed a hand-cranked device for cooling liquid, such as wine, for his monks. His first unit was sold in 1911. Audiffren machines were expensive, selling for about $1,000—about twice as much as an automobile cost at the time. But the tenacity and creativity of the inventor as reflected in the device were undeniable.
