This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Now your sims can freely clutter the tops of their fridges, as many of us do in real life. This was a little bit more challenging than the other things I've done with added slots, because extra things are needed to be done to make refrigerators compatible with other EPs as well as making the base game ones base game compatible, and the other EP fridges compatible with just base and that EP. The base game fridges do not have extra EP functions, but if you have the EPs the functions will show up. So first of all I would like to thank Lord Darcy for his incredibly insightful tutorial (which I found by accident by clicking a link in his signature). Also, many of you have asked about tutorial links for adding slots, so I'll just post them both here. One by HugeLunatic and one by leesester.

The base game fridges are base game compatible, and also have the extra EP functions such as Make Many (OFB), functionality for leftovers (Seasons), and functionality for hobby unlockables (Freetime). The rest of the fridges also have this extra EP functionality, and also remain compatible with any combination of EPs and SPs or base. The University mini fridge already had a slot in the middle, so I've added 6 slots around it. These are not default replacements, and are all slaved to Maxis. These all have no textures because they are slaved. You should recolor the original fridges in SimPE if you want to recolor.

Polygon Counts:
Base Game Cheap - 1,002 (Unchanged from Maxis)
Base Game Expensive - 790 (Unchanged from Maxis)
University Grungy - 1,002 (Unchanged from Maxis)
Freetime - 1,084 (Unchanged from Maxis)
Kitchens Romantic - 872 (Unchanged from Maxis)
Kitchens Modern - 1,070 (Unchanged from Maxis)
