From smart technology that’ll let you control your fridge from your smartphone to clever cooling that you can customise, there’s loads of exciting new fridge freezer tech to try out.
When it comes to the latest fridge freezer trends, clever new smart tech is by far the most exciting. Smart technology on your fridge freezer is all about making it really easy to manage your food on-the-go, and some models are even capable of taking photographs of the food in your fridge and sending it to your smartphone. So you can check in on your ingredients whilst you’re doing the shopping. Models such as Samsung’s Family Hub fridge freezer make the most of a clever WiFi enabled touchscreen, where you can add items to your shopping list and even order your groceries online. And if you’re stuck for dinner ideas, you can download tasty step-by-step recipes that’ll help you really make the most of your fresh ingredients.
If you’re fed up of your salad going limp or your cheese drawer getting a bit stale, then flexible cooling zones can help. Brands such as LG, Samsung and AEG are now producing models with flexible cooling zones that allow you to change the temperature and humidity levels of different areas in your fridge. This means that you can keep your salad cold and crisp and your cheese a little warmer at the same time, so your food will always be fresh. Some models even have drawers that can be changed from a fridge compartment to a freezer at the push of a button – perfect for when you need a little extra space.
Possibly one of the most useful trends to hit fridge freezers is flexible storage space. Most brands now have clever systems that allow you to switch and swap around your shelves and drawers, with some compartments even changing size to give you loads more room. Really handy for stocking up on that big weekly shop! This unique LG model has a mirrored glass panel that lets you see inside the fridge without losing that cold, fresh air by opening the door. To illuminate the panel and reveal what's inside, you simply knock on the door twice. Pretty swanky, right?
