Not at all.....I spent my childhood in India and we had one as the monsoon had failed and there was a water shortage, hydroelectric power, so consequently electricity shortage. It had a tank in the base that fed a flame with a cloth wick in a glass chimney. The biggest problem was making sure the flame was even, but as a kid I liked doing this. Not much regualtion, but it made ice and froze food and worked well. We even went on holiday to one of the hill stations once and the hotel told my mother that they were having problems with their kerosene fridge...she had a look and got them to clean the whole thing up and dump the contaminated kerosene and voila ! it worked like new. She even managed to sell our fridge, by then some 20 years old when we eventually left the country. Googling for paraffin fridges threw up some info on using them in self supporting communities in Africa, so someone must still make them.

Don't know about their availability in Spain, but while reading up on the Amish in Wiki, came across this- Kerosene fridges.
