Whirlpool’s new premium American-style side-by-side’s ideal for families and entertaining

Whirlpool’s new American-style side-by-side fridge freezers are ideal for big families and entertaining.  The premium 20cu ft model, WSC5555 A+X, with unique 6th Sense ® technology, not only offers a large capacity, but is among the most energy efficient cooling appliances on the market, boasting an A+ energy rating, making it both economical and environmentally friendly.

Whirlpool’s WSC5555 A+X benefits from the company’s  patented 6th Sense® technology, and uses intelligent sensors inside the storage area to constantly monitor the temperature and respond quickly to any changes; restoring optimum conditions up to five times faster than a conventional refrigerator. The Total No Frost feature circulates chilled air around the storage areas, reducing condensation and moisture to prevent the formation of ice, for a totally frost-free fridge and freezer.

Fresh filtered water is available on tap through the newly designed ice and water dispenser which is free of water impurities thanks to the built-in filter.  With this superb feature there is also no longer any need to buy bottled water from the supermarket, which not only saves money but also does away with the hassle of recycling plastic bottles.  In addition its rotating water nozzle makes for easy dispensing so is perfect for joggers or gym fanatics as they can fill their sports bottles with fresh filtered water.

The ice maker is fitted into the door, creating 20% extra storage space in the freezer, and dispenses crushed or cube ice.  The removable container can be used as an ice bucket so ice can be served directly at the table, and is excellent way of providing cold drinks for al fresco dining or barbeques during the summer months.

Dean McKelvie, Product Managing Freestanding at Whirlpool, said: “Whirlpool’s new side-by -side fridge freezer is engineered with innovative smart technology to maintain optimal food storage, with maximum energy efficiency.

“Both the fridge and freezer offer a large capacity ideal for big families, particularly now that staying in is the new going out and there is more of a need for stocking up on those essentials!  The thoughtful design features make storing food easier and for longer, and more convenient to help with the practicalities of everyday life, but also have brilliant functions, such as the ice maker which is great for those who like to entertain frequently!”
