Features Available for Refrigerators
With so many styles and models available today in the market, one may feel lost when shopping for a fridge. The growing market calls for innovations and advancements in different electronic devices and refrigerators are not an exception. Modern refrigerators contain some features that enable the refrigerators to function at an optimum. Some of these exciting features that we found on refrigerators include;
In this modern era, there has been an introduction of digital temperature controls in fridges. Unlike before, all one was required to do was turn on a dial. Top quality refrigerators these days enable one to set precise temperatures. This type of accuracy significantly enhances food safety.
Different foods require different temperatures for preservation. Multiple temperature zones allow the user flexibility to set temperatures zones independently. Fruits, vegetables, meats, etc., can be contained in the same fridge but kept at different temperatures.
Premium refrigerators have now incorporated low-power LED lighting. It is more energy efficient than the heat emitting bulbs which interfere with the purpose of keeping food cold. They also make visibility easier when you wake up for your glass of milk in the middle of the night.
To ensure there is proper cooling of stored food in the fridge, proper air circulation needs to be present. Fridges these days are being designed with bigger spaces to increase the storage capacity. This way, the fridge can accommodate more food and still operate at an optimum.
Refrigerators have different compartments for different purposes. The user does not feel restricted because these fridges allow one to change them up to suit their purpose. You can alter the refrigerator to a freezer, and the reverse is also possible.
Some fridges have sliding shelves that allow the user to conveniently arrange food items in the refrigerator or add their own extra shelves.
These refrigerators can now be configured on compatible devices to send you alerts, power usage and much more. Believe it or not, some have built in speakers and Bluetooth connectivity to keep you entertained in the kitchen.
If you are planning to store a lot of herbs, fruits, and vegetables, consider getting a fridge with such features. These controlled drawers are built in to keep your veggies fresh. Some even allow the user to keep the stems wet and leaves dry by placing them in a container with water.
These have become a common attribute of fridges, and they evolve as time goes by. Some have an automatic or measured filling system which detects the size of your cup or glass and fills it without spilling. These measurements are an excellent way to help with your cooking and baking too.
While getting water from the fridge is no big deal, obtaining hot water from your fridge is. Hot water dispensers have also grown popular and are being used to make tea, warm the baby’s bottle, etc.
Special Power Modes
Some fridges have unique modes that allow the user to speed up the cooling process temporarily, for food safe temperatures.
To prevent food and energy waste, some doors of refrigerators will chime or beep when the door isn’t fully closed.
