June 26, 2018 Fresh Ideas, Preservation

When you entertain, you know that things will go more smoothly, and you’ll enjoy the party more, when you are prepared. KitchenAid recently unveiled a new, multi-door, free-standing refrigerator with a five-compartment configuration that provides unparalleled control for organizing and preserving the freshness of foods. With several new and innovative features, this fridge keeps everything organized and fresh, even with a house full of people.

KitchenAid 5 drawer refrigerator with open doorsThe upper portion of the refrigerator is built with two side-by-side compartments, similar to a traditional French-door style. Inside, adjustable shelves make it easy to fit food of all shapes and sizes, and the finely textured surface on the shelf contains spills and prevents them from reaching other parts of refrigerator. All the items you need are within easy reach, and the other people in your kitchen, who never find what they are looking for, can locate items quickly without your help and without standing in front of the fridge with the door open.

To help cooks gather ingredients quickly and seamlessly, SatinGlide® Crispers feature premium rollers that move smoothly when opening and closing, even when the drawer is fully loaded. In addition, an herb storage container helps prolong the freshness of herbs, such as rosemary, thyme and oregano, with an angled floor that allows stems to rest in water at the bottom while the leaves remain dry at the top. Imagine cooking with fresh herbs at your fingertips.

Two external drawers sit side-by-side in the middle of the refrigerator with a soft-close feature that keeps movement smooth and consistent, even when loaded with food. The left drawer offers five preset temperatures ideal for: meat/fish, drinks, greens/herbs, deli/cheese and thaw/marinate. The right drawer features a Produce Preserver with optimal humidity to keep fruits and vegetables from over-ripening. These drawers keep everything organized and at the perfect temperatures for optimum freshness. It’s also a great place to send kitchen snackers of any size for fresh vegetables or drinks. They can quickly find what they need in the drawers without digging through the rest of the fridge. The bottom-mount freezer drawer with a three-tier drawer design serves as the fifth compartment. The design keeps items organized and easy to reach and reflects KitchenAid’s dedication to helping cooks find everything quickly and easily. No more digging through the freezer drawer to find what you need crushed at the bottom.

The refrigerator is designed with the brand’s Preserva® Food Care System that helps extend freshness, minimize odors and delay over-ripening of foods. Additional premium features include an In-Door-Ice® system located on the inside left door of the refrigerator. This allows for extra shelf space in the refrigerator compartment. A Measured Fill Water feature can be programmed to pour a measured amount of water, and LED Lighting gradually increases light levels in both the refrigerator and freezer to provide a sharper view with fewer shadows. The fridge comes in stainless steel and black stainless steel finishes. It features Satin Textured Handles with a no-slip grip, capped with the iconic KitchenAid® brand medallions at each end.
