Refrigerators & Freezers

Refrigerators and Freezers are a common kitchen appliance. Refrigerators and freezers have a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump, either mechanical or electronic or chemical, which helps enable the inside heat to be transferred out, hence the cooling. Refrigerators and freezers have become a necessary item and are considered a must as a food storage technique because lower temperatures in a confined volume lowers the reproduction rate of bacteria and so effectively reduces chances of food getting spoilt / sour or the quality getting deteoriating. Refrigerators maintain a 3 to 5 °C temperature. Freezers, on the other hand, store food from -23 to -18 °C. Both refrigerators and freezers can come in separate forms, however many prefer the freezer-on-top-and-refrigerator-on-bottom style. Refrigerators and freezers come in various styles. Earlier, refrigerators and freezers were in white, but are now available in pastel colors like turquoise and pink, brushed chrome-plating, to Harvest gold, avocado green and almond, black & even silver / steel finish to go with your other kitchen gadgets. Most home refrigerators weigh between 200 pounds (91 kg) and 450 pounds (200 kg), with some models weighing up to 875 pounds (397 kg). Separate freezers & refrigerators are available too both in upright standing position as well as chest style. They are available in both residential as well as commercial models.
