A fresh AP­PROACH

In­tro­duc­ing the Ac­tives­mart™ re­frig­er­a­tor from Fisher & Paykel – keep­ing your food fresher, for longer

Dish - - DISH + FISH & PAYKEL -

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.
