Also applies to the German Kühlschrank.

Also in Danish, køleskab. But the pronunciation is so different..

Do you guys ever call it Kyl or something like that, the way we say fridge ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HelenCarlsson

Yes, we do! Actually it is "en kyl" but "ett kylskåp":
Har du satt in maten i kylen?

Tack! Ingen har tid att säga en lång ord som kylskåp när de är hungriga... :) Även två t bockstäver verkar för mysket :D

How do you pronounce the kyl? Chill?

The sounds more like shill.
