Maytag’s new side-by-side fridge freezer is big, stylish and eco-friendly

Maytag’s new smart and sleek gloss black side-by-side fridge freezer, the MSS 20 FBB14, is not only big on capacity, it is also very eco-friendly. It also uses the latest innovative technology to keep food looking and tasting better for longer, so frequent trips to the supermarket can become a thing of the past!

This is among the most energy efficient refrigeration on the market, as it boasts an A+ energy rating, making it extremely economical for the consumer, as well as being friendlier to the environment. It uses up to 25% less energy than appliances with an A energy class rating, and 45% less that those with a B class rating.

Fitted with Maytag’s advanced electronic IntelliSense® technology, it uses special internal sensors to monitor and control the temperature to ensure better food conservation so food stays fresher for longer. It can also restore the required temperature, after the door has been opened, up to five times faster than a conventional fridge.

Maytag’s innovative new in-door crisper, a handy temperature and humidity controlled pull down compartment inside the door, is great for storing your ‘five-a-day’ fruit and vegetables; it keeps them fresher and crisper for longer. There are two additional refrigerated vegetable drawers that are very versatile and flexible, and one can also be set to a 0°C, which provides an additional benefit, being perfect for safely storing meat or fish for longer.

Fresh chilled and filtered water is available on tap, while the cleverly concealed water filter ensures top quality removing 99.9% of impurities. The handy water fill spigot allows bottles, glasses and jugs to easily be filled without any spillage – ideal for those exercise fanatics who want to fill up their sports bottles with fresh, healthy water!

The ice dispenser delivers cubed or crushed ice at the touch of a button and even has night time illumination that turns off after use.  As it is conveniently located in the door, it frees up to 20% more useable space in the freezer. The ice container can also be easily removed so fresh ice can be served directly at the table or out in the garden – making it the perfect addition for entertaining!

Caroline Guillermard, Product Marketing Manager, Premium for Maytag UK, commented: “This side-by-side fridge freezer is a sleek and smart appliance packed full of sophisticated and clever innovative features to help keep fresher, tasting better and looking good for longer. Its advanced sensor technology ensures that food is always stored at the perfect temperature, retaining its nutritional value and freshness, so there is less waste, which saves the consumer money and shopping time!

“Although it offers a large flexible capacity, it is extremely economical and makes good use of space, with adjustable shelves and flexible storage racks, in-door balconies and even an in-door ice and water dispenser, which not only saves space, but also saves energy as it is easily accessible without having to open the door.

“This is refrigeration on a grand scale with smart, intelligent technology and programming to enhance every home and lifestyle.”
