Whirlpool Introduces Refrigerator with Extra Storage, Advanced Cooling Technology


Benton Harbor-based Whirlpool Corp. has unveiled a French door-style refrigerator with nine storage zones, self-closing doors, and a dual cooling technology that senses conditions and adapts automatically to humidity levels.

“Consumers challenged us to get the most storage and organization possible while also keeping everything in clear view,” says Jon Hall, senior brand manager of the Whirlpool Brand. “This refrigerator delivers that and more.”

The 26-cubic feet refrigerator has nine storage spaces that are designed to fit certain items, such as a pizza pocket for frozen pizzas and a shelf that fits a taller pitcher. The left drawer is temperature-controlled with five settings, including one for thawing frozen meats. The right drawer is designed for produce storage.

Hall says the refrigerator also offers additional options include dual icemakers and under-lit shelves.

The refrigerator retails for about $3,300.​
