A refrigeration apparatus includes an air chiller, a storage enclosure defining a compartment, a duct system, and a valve system. The air chiller blows chilled air into the duct system. The compartment has a first and a second opening, each of which is coupled to the duct system. The valve system has valves that can be moved to route the chilled air so that it enters into the first opening and exits the second opening, or vice versa. In one implementation, the first opening is at the top of the compartment and the second opening is at the bottom of the c...


I claim: 1. A method for cooling a plurality of food or beverage compartments, the method comprising:(a) directing chilled air through each of the compartments in a first direction via a ducting system having ducting in common with all of the compartments, each of the compartments comprising a rectangular volume entirely bounded on six sides, wherein each of the compartments has two openings that correspond one-to-one with individual openings in the ducting system;(b) after step (a), inhibiting the flow of the chilled air from flowing in the first direct...
