Electrolux introduces new refrigerator
Charlotte, N.C.-based Electrolux announced the addition of its new French Door Refrigerator, including the Perfect Temp Drawer with Luxury-Close.
The newest addition to Electrolux’s refrigerator line, this French Door Refrigerator is designed with the refrigerator on top and freezer drawer on the bottom. It claims to give consumers more interior space without increasing the exterior.
The new unit also features the Perfect Temp Drawer, which can be customized to dramatically lengthen and preserve the freshness and taste of meats, fruit and vegetables. For instance, a consumer can set the drawer temperature at the ideal setting to serve fresh cheeses or lower the temperature to chill bottles of sparkling wine. It can also be set to lengthen the freshness of delicate raspberries or better preserve the taste of home grown tomatoes.
“When it comes to refrigeration, our consumers want more options for organization and for keeping food fresher longer,” said Joon So, VP and general manager of Refrigeration, Freezers and Home Comfort Products for Electrolux in North America.
