If someone types in “Fridges” can all the products in category “Fridges” show?

Category keywords do not show up in search results.

You can, however, set a URL rewrite to do this.

In Magento Admin -> Catalog -> URL Rewrite Management

Add a URLRewrite for your category name that points to your category URL (or whatever you like)

Well, chances are every Fridge page has the word “Fridge” or “Fridges” on there, if you did your homework right, so they would show up anyway. And with layered navigation set up properly, that would be another reference point in the search results.

Skippy’s suggestion of course is the most direct.
