I suspect you were right when mentioning the price difference between explosion proof and flammable refrigerators.  if nothing else, an explosion proof refrigerator needs to be hard wired in which requires an electrician at the vast majority of places.

Allegedly, the price difference isn't always that much (between the flammable one you need and the explosion-proof one you don't - but will serve same purpose).  This according to a client of mine who responded this way when I made the "cost difference" observation during an audit recently.  As long as you know the difference when shopping Kyle - which it appears that you did already.
