In the kitchen, organization is very important. Being able to find what you need quickly is half the battle when you are entertaining, cooking or just being a mom with children. With the pantry-inspired Whirlpool French Door refrigerator that boasts a door-within-door feature, you will finally get what you want the most – organization, flexibility and easy access to your family favourites.
What is a Door-in-Door Refrigerator
It is a newer feature that can be found on the common French-door refrigerator. Brands such as Whirlpool, GE and Samsung have really brought this innovation to the forefront. Basically, it is a hidden chamber in one of the upper doors that swings open, allowing you to access beverages, snacks, and condiments that you or your family members tend to use most frequently.
This feature is mostly about convenience but it also can save energy as well, so that you can keep money in your pocket instead of giving it to the utility company. We have all stood in front of the refrigerator with the door wide open taking our time to decide what we want; meanwhile, the main chamber is losing cold air.
Think about it! Most refrigerators do not have a dedicated cooling system in the door and the door tends to be warmer than inside the main cavity. So you really need to think what you store in the door that could spoil: milk, mayonnaise, yogurt, sour cream and even eggs. With a door-in-door refrigerator that features an active cooling system, you don’t have to worry about this because it will keep items stored in the door, items extra cold.
Convenient for all families
Let’s go back to talking about convenience because that is what the door-in-door refrigerator is all about. It is an ideal space for your family favourites, like pop cans, milk, condiments, yogurt, cheese, drinking boxes and children snacks because they can be stored properly at an ideal temperature and right at your fingertips.
Whirlpool purposely designed every section, every shelf and every bin with the consumer in mind, their goal was to change the way families think about refrigerator organization.
Here are a few other key features that the Whirlpool door-in-door refrigerator includes that will make your life a whole lot easier.
Infinity Slide Shelves
These shelves line the perimeter of the fridge, so that you can move small items to the edges to make room for big, high-use items in the centre. These shelves have been spaced apart based on common sizes of food packaging so that yogurts, jars, 12-pack of pop cans and egg cartons can fit perfectly. There is an adjustable centre pane that glides just as far as you need to accommodate taller items like pitchers and wine bottles.
When loading the refrigerator or freezer, most of the time it becomes a dumping ground with overflowing bins, packed shelves with no rhyme or reason. Whirlpool has helped with this by understanding what families buy most and they have developed a system with just the right spot reserved for every item. From chocolate to cheese strings to other kids’ snacks, the Treasure™ Bin helps to keep the little items in clear sight and handy.
Whirlpool has thought of everything with their asymmetrical crispers that have been designed with dividers to display fresh produce up front, like peppers and store bags of apples in the back. No more throwing away food because it was forgotten about in the back. Also, the crispers are designed to hold common foods that are long and wide. Imagine not having to shove your celery stalks in the crisper drawer anymore or even large lettuce heads, because the drawers were designed to accommodate long and wide items.
It seems like Whirlpool has thought of everything when it comes to this refrigerator (see it in action in this video by Reviewed.com). So if you are in the market for a new refrigerator you should definitely consider checking it out.
