Whirlpool introduces food preservation technology
Whirlpool, a home appliance manufacturer, has introduced an Activ0° system on selected refrigeration models, to ensure longer lasting food preservation.
Each year, seven million tonnes worth of food and drinks are being wasted in the UK, leaving the consumer out of pocket while also damaging the environment. Whirlpool’s refrigerators now offer a solution to this problem with the introduction of Activ0° technology.
Whirlpool’s Activ0° is a dedicated drawer in the fridge that is kept at the ideal temperature of 0° to make sure meat and fish lasts for up to three days longer. The Activ0° works in coordination with Whirlpool’s intelligent 6th Sense Fresh Control, which ensures a constant humidity level of 85-95%; maintaining the best conditions for long lasting food freshness.
The Whirlpool WBV 33992 NFC combi fridge freezer is a key model in the range which offers Activ0°. It boasts an ‘A++’ energy rating and features unique 6th Sense technology to constantly monitor and adapt the temperature and humidity of the fridge. The fridge is also protected by an anti-bacterial air filter with Microban technology to purify circulating air, reducing bacteria and odours.
Whirlpool Absolute WBV 33992 NFC combi fridge freezer is ‘A++’ energy rated Green Generation combi fridge freezer with a net capacity of 218 litres and a 97 litre net capacity freezer. The 6th Sense Fresh Control circulates chilled air around the fridge to ensure a constant level of humidity for food preservation up to four times longer than a fridge without 6th Sense. The technology also recovers the ideal temperature ten times faster after door opening than a fridge without 6th Sense.
It features a new absolute aesthetic for a sleek and stylish statement. The new top-down Starlight LED illumination of the fridge is twice as bright as a normal bulb and uses ten times less energy. It is simple to use with an easy-to-read user interface. Additional features include frost free freezer and automatic defrost fridge for maintenance-free convenience, seamless flush handles, and Techno Steel finish. Its dimensions are: H 2,000 x W 595 x D 640 mm.
