I don't compare food to oxygen. For me food would only be overpowered if you didn't need dupes to harvest and care for the plants but my dupes are putting in the work to take care of them. So what if they harvest more food then needed. If players wanted to use the fridges they could choose to do so but now it feels like more of a forced gameplay. It would be okay if food still didn't rot in the fridges but putting it in the fridge doesn't automatically give it the deep freeze. I would rather see an actual freezer implemented into the game. Or have an option to compost the food not needed before having to wait for it to rot. I don't think that's an option is it? I'm not 100% sure. The change is just annoying for me.
