agree  Charles Ek: (S/b "cold room". A "cool room" describes a teenager's bedroom.) At the linked site: "Dette kjølerommet kalles Folkerommet og er et meget populært kjølerom for privathusholdningen. Det er et passe stort kjølerom som passer både hverdager og til fest!"

  -> Precisely why I felt Cool Room would be a cool name, if not an accurate product description...

agree  William [Bill] Gray: But "coolroom" fits the bill ("Bill"), Charles! See my answer (apologies to Per!) on the question as posed with a capital letter!
