Whirlpool 4 Doors fridge freezer WQ9 B1L - lifestyle open - low

Brand New Whirlpool American-Style Fridge Freezer Offers Outstanding Food Preservation

Premium appliance manufacturer, Whirlpool introduces its brand new 4 Doors fridge freezer (WQ9 B1L). The freestanding, American-style, side-by-side fridge freezer benefits from intelligent food preservation technology, adaptable storage solutions and a spacious 591 litre capacity.

The new fridge freezer boasts a double door refrigerator with an opulent 384 litre capacity.  The refrigerator opens to a full-width, uninterrupted area – there is no central pillar – and is superb for placing large items and platters.

The new model delivers outstanding food preservation thanks to Whirlpool’s patented 6TH SENSE® technology. The innovative 6TH SENSE® FreshLock system creates the optimal environment for storing fresh and frozen food by automatically detecting and controlling any temperature variation.

Boasting a 207 litre capacity freezer, with four drawers and two pull-out shelves, the freezer also offers outstanding versatility thanks to the adaptable FlexiFreeze compartment. FlexiFreeze has three different settings for users to choose from to suit a variety of freezing requirements; Soft Freeze (-7°C), Mild Freeze (-12°C) and Deep Freeze (-18°C). What’s more, 6TH SENSE® FreezeLock reduces freezer burn by up to 50 per cent*, preserving the overall quality of the food for longer.

The ‘A+’ energy rated appliance has Total NoFrost for total ease of maintenance as defrosting is not required.  There is also a handy Holiday Mode, which allows the freezer to remain in operation, while the fridge is kept a temperature of around 12°C, so the doors may remained closed and eliminate bacterial growth.

Appliance design is equally as important as functionality and the brand new 4 Doors fridge freezer from Whirlpool doesn’t disappoint. The elegant, slim fit doors have been designed to complement modern kitchen styles, while the Silent Inverter Compressor motor ensures a quiet operation with a noise output of only 37 dB(A). Furthermore, for ultimate comfort, the interior has clever ‘Gradual Lighting’ that gently increases the interior’s brightness, allowing the user’s eyes to adjust to the light.

Michela Giorgetti, Cooling Category Manager, Whirlpool, says: “Capacity and food preservation are high on the list of important factors when consumers are looking to purchase a fridge freezer. The brand new 4 Doors fridge freezer combines the very best in 6TH SENSE® technology, flexible storage and contemporary styling to bring a new level of sophistication to any kitchen.”
