Supercool - Refrigeration


Putting new food into your fridge causes the internal temperature to increase; the more you add, the greater the effect. Your fridge has to work harder to cool down, and the food already stored in there can get warmer. So for maximum preservation, Supercool will prepare your fridge by rapidly reducing the temperature, keeping the contents cool, and quickly lowering the temperature of the new groceries down to 2oC.

Superfreeze - Refrigeration


Adding new food to the freezer raises the internal temperature, and the freezer has to work harder to avoid food already in there from warming-up, and possibly even part defrosting. The Superfreeze function rapidly lowers the temperature in the freezer, ensuring that the fresh food is frozen food quickly, while surrounding frozen food stays frozen. So even when the door is open for longer periods, the contents are protected.
