Whirlpool Gets Smart With a New WiFi-Enabled Fridge Freezer

The future kitchen is all about smart appliances, and Whirlpool, the world’s largest appliance manufacturer, has brought the future to today with their very first WiFi-enabled fridge freezer.

Following on from the launch of their smart washing machine and tumble dryer, Whirlpool has now launched the BSNF 8993/PB 6th Sense Live® Supreme NoFrost fridge freezer, which can be controlled from anywhere, by an app on your smartphone or tablet.

With revolutionary technology, which enables top performance from wherever you are, the Whirlpool 6th Sense Live® app for the new Whirlpool fridge freezer allows the user to adjust and monitor settings, activate special functions and receive notifications, while ready to give hints and tips on food storage, as well as advice for easy maintenance.

One of the key benefits of the new 6th Sense Live® app for the Supreme NoFrost fridge freezer is that it assists the user to ensure smarter grocery management. The Shopping List function allows you to create a food inventory and avoid unnecessary food wastage by notifying you when expiry dates are approaching.

Along with the 6th Sense® FreshControl and FreezeControl technology, which maintain optimal humidity levels, ensuring food does not dehydrate and nutritional value, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants are all preserved for up to four times longer,1 the 6th Sense Live® app also helps the user to use the appliance in the most effective way to allow for optimal food preservation.

What’s more, if you accidentally leave the freezer door open, an alert on your smartphone or tablet will notify you before you settle down to a night in front of the TV or while away a long day with a relaxing bath.  However, if you are at work and suddenly remember you forgot to set the fast freezing mode or to switch on the Activ0° compartment ready for some special food, or if you wish to check the expiry date of your milk and eggs before buying more at the supermarket, the Whirlpool 6th Sense Live® fridge freezer app can help to make your life easier.

Jennifer Spragg, Senior Brand Manager, Whirlpool, says: “The new Supreme No Frost fridge freezer with 6th Sense Live® technology is Whirlpool’s newest addition to smart home technology that aims to make life easier for UK households.

“With easy to follow tutorials on how to store your food to ensure it stays fresh as the day you bought it for as long as possible, and with instructions on how to fix simple problems without incurring unnecessary maintenance costs, Whirlpool is proud to announce the smart Whirlpool fridge freezer as the flagship model of the Supreme NoFrost range.”
