Dual Evaporators - Keeping It Fresh
Twin cooling or Dual Evaporators means there's no air exchange between the fresh food section (humid air) and the freezer section (dry air) of the refrigerator. Keeping the dry air in the freezer where it belongs will keep your produce and other fresh food lasting much longer. Keeping the humid air from the fresh food section out of the freezer will also nearly eliminate freezer burn. Professional brands have used similar technology in their refrigerators for decades, but now it's available on many mainstream brands as well.
Stainless Steel & Alternative Finishes
Few trends have taken over the home appliance industry as dramatically as stainless steel. Over the years, demand for the look of stainless steel with easier maintenance has led to many new finishes. GE Slate, KitchenAid Black Stainless, Frigidaire Smudge-Proof, and Whirlpool White Ice have all become best sellers.
Counter-Depth or Standard-Depth?
Standard-depth refrigerators are more widely available than counter-depth. The advantage of standard-depth is the huge interior capacity that many families require. However, counter-depth models certainly offer a sleeker look. Manufacturers are working tirelessly to develop inventive ways to reduce cabinet size and increase interior capacity . There are a few premium counter-depth models available today that don't sacrifice the interior space.
LED Lighting - It's Not Just for Looks
LED bulbs flood the inside of the refrigerator with light making it easy to see into every nook. Food looks the way it should and it's easy to see when it's time to replenish. In addition to the superior lighting, LED bulbs also burn much cooler than the incandescent bulbs of the past - resulting in big energy savings!
Precise Filling & Hot Water Dispensers
Ice & water dispensers aren't only offering crushed or cubed anymore. Models with Precise-Fill take the guesswork and measuring out of your recipes, making it fast and easy to cook like a pro. Some models even dispense hot water so you can enjoy that cup of tea with no effort. Built-in safety features keep small children and pets safe too.
