If the description I saw in Wikipedia is correct, that they are induction motors, They are used in refrigerators and I wouldn’t be surprised if they are used in other common applications.

What an odd offer! It's an induction  motor, usually operating on
three-phase electricity, which us mere mortals have absolutely nothing
to do with nor any need for. They're used in high-capacity applications
suchb as pumps and moving large objects like elevators.
