The special feature of this refrigerator is that the ratio between fridge and freezer compartments is 1:1, while it is normally 3:2. The underlying idea is the consumers’ desire to have more room for frozen items. The refrigerator offers a humid zone, a dry zone and a multi-zone. By means of the “Navi-Force” control system, temperature in the individual zones can be accurately set and automatically regulated. The door opens at a 90-degree angle, so that the user has better access to the cooled goods.
Statement by the Jury
With its partition in cool and freezer zones of the same size, the REF-618 offers an impressive amount of storage room in both sections.
