1. Large-capacity Refrigerator with Selectable Zone Feature
Hitachi has released the R-KW57K refrigerator that comes with selectable zone, a new feature enabling use of the two compartments (pull-out drawers) in the lower section as either freezer, refrigerator, or vegetable compartments to meet the user’s lifestyle needs. The refrigerator’s main features are as follows:
- Comes with selectable zones, a new feature that enables each of the refrigerator’s bottom two storage levels to be used as a freezer, refrigerator, or vegetable compartment. The feature lets users freely select the layout that matches their lifestyle needs the best. For example, busy dual-income households relying heavily on frozen meals can use both levels as freezer compartments, while households consuming a lot of fresh vegetables can use the readily accessible top level as a vegetable compartment.
- Moisture cooling feature sets the interior of the refrigerator compartment to the ‘chilled’ temperature setting of about 2°C*. It reduces propagation of food germs to ensure that pre-made dishes retain long-lasting freshness no matter where in the refrigerator compartment they are placed. The refrigerator compartment also has a new subzero compartment that can preserve the freshness of meat or fish without freezing it (at about –1°C). It uses indirect cooling with no direct contact of cold air on food, helping prevent opened ham from drying out even when unwrapped.
