A fresh APPROACH
Introducing the Activesmart™ refrigerator from Fisher & Paykel – keeping your food fresher, for longer
Wouldn’t it be nice to open up your fridge at the end of the week and find veggies that are as fresh, feisty and flavoursome as the day you bought them? There’s nothing more frustrating than limp lettuce or carrots on the verge of a meltdown – especially at this time of year when you’ve filled the shelves with produce to feed the holiday hordes.
Fisher & Paykel takes their food quality very seriously, so their designers and engineers took a long, cool look at the problem of keeping food fresher, for longer. They wanted to create intelligent refrigerators that would help your food go the distance (and lock in those vital nutrients) by keeping it at a consistent temperature. Temperature fluctuations happen all the time in refrigerators, caused by anything from the door opening to how much food is stored and the climate outside. The answer? Washing machines. That’s right; they decided to take the cutting-edge technology they pioneered in their Smartdrive™ washing machines – which respond intelligently to different laundry loads – and apply it to their refrigerators.
They combined temperature sensors in the refrigerators with electronics that vary the speed of twin cooling fans to create a more controlled storage environment they’ve called Activesmart™ Technology. This allows the temperature to change when conditions alter, the door is opened, or new food is stored inside. Together with the Humidity Control System in the produce bins, the consistent temperature delivered by Activesmart™ Technology creates the perfect microclimate which helps keep food fresher for longer.
And the really cool part about their Activesmart™ refrigerators? They’re a product not just of great engineering, but of consumer feedback – their research told them what customers need from their fridge, how they use it every day, and most importantly they listened.
