Push come to shove, you can insert the following into the lid of the fridge. You inlet a stout block of wood, with a deep half-round cutout. And then drill the block for a rod, through the recess in the cutout. Giving you room to grip the rod, & lift up the lid.
My preference is to go to a metal artisan, & purchase
a beautifully sculpted & carved cross bar piece, for the rod. That, & perhaps buy or make some pretty trim plates for the edges of the wooden block.
