The heatwave that's hit the UK this week doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon, with Brits doing all that they can to keep cool.
It holds the same amount of food as around 20 family-sized fridges and remains at a temperature somewhere between 10 and 12 degrees all year round.
It also doesn't require electricity and boasts an additional battery-driven ventilator which inhales cold air throughout the night.
With built-in shelving, an integrated staircase and a lockable door, the fridge seems like the perfect place to, literally and metaphorically, chill."I am always looking at new needs in the environment which emerge," said Floris Schoonderbeek, the man responsible for creating The GroundFridge, in an interview with The Mirror.
"The GroundFridge is a combination of an old and proven technique and present-day application."
Schoondenberk, who leads a studio named after him that designs and makes 'practical solutions for a creative life in a more beautiful world', also said The GroundFridge can store many items, including cheese and wine, and can easily be disguised in the garden by growing trees and plants around and on top of it.
However, there is one thing about The GroundFridge that might freeze you in your tracks - it's cost, which is estimated to be somewhere between £10,000 and £12,000.
That being said, with the way the weather is going in the UK in the moment, you wouldn't be surprised if a fair few Brits forked out for it.
England recorded its hottest day of the week earlier this week, hitting a scorching 32 degrees.
The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning for the rest of the week and predicts that similar temperatures will return for a fortnight in mid-August.
Maybe investing in an underground fridge might be a cool idea after all.
