Our ancestors somehow managed without refrigerators, now it is impossible to imagine even having a cellar. The refrigerator is necessary in any kitchen. With all the variety of models you need to choose the one that fits not only in design, size and quality, but also in its functions and price. The optimal solution will help the Korean company Daewoo, which guarantees ten years of excellent operation of refrigeration equipment.
The Daewoo brand began its activity with the production of clothing in 1967.
In the late nineties, due to the crisis in Asia, the company was reorganized. After the change of leadership in subsequent years, began to produce high-quality equipment and develop and apply new technologies. The main activity now is the production of all kinds of household and even automotive vehicles. The company is part of the American corporation "General Motors".
Daewoo refrigerators from mini-freezers for holiday cottages, single-chamber, standard two-compartments to premium-side refrigerators, are in great demand. It is popular not only in Korea, but also in Russia.
With a wide range of models of this brand it is necessary to determine the model, design, size.
Daewoo refrigerators are durable, reliable and of high quality. The technical characteristics of the refrigerators are mainly high-energy class A, A +, climate class T, affordable electronic control. The type of compressor can be chosen at will. Koreans offer a reciprocating inverter compressor that continuously works, maintaining the optimum temperature. Only power surges in the electrical network adversely affect its operation. Linear compressors are turned off when the set temperature is reached and turned on when it rises. Most refrigeration units are coated with antibacterial nano-silver, which prevents bacteria from multiplying in a humid environment. It helps to preserve vitamins and freshness of products.
Two-compartment refrigerators of this brand are the most in demand all over the world and meet European standards. They can be built-in or stand-alone. The advantage of the built-in equipment is that it does not require a combination with the design of the kitchen, but the detached unit can be rearranged to any place.
The freezer can be located both at the top and bottom of the case. Reliability is comparable to the price. Most models have an automatic defrost system, child protection, door opening signal. Isobutane is used as a refrigerant. The presence of a special fan does not allow frost to settle on the walls of the chamber, which leads to an even distribution of cold air throughout the chamber, while maintaining the freshness of the products.
Daewoo refrigeration units are made of high-quality materials of different colors.
You can choose, depending on the design of the kitchen, from white, silver to color and black.
For example, Daewoo Electronics FGK51WFG and Daewoo Electronics FGK56EFG two-chamber white and silver, both freezers are located at the top. These units are climate class T (from +18 degrees to 43 Celsius), LED lighting, automatic defrost.
The decoration of any kitchen will be black glass. A feature of this model are black elegant reflective glass doors. With LED lighting you can see the whole space. This is a two-compartment refrigerator. Daewoo Electronics FNT650NPB, total volume is about 500 liters. To characterize it as follows:
- the freezer is located on top;
- "zone of freshness";
- energy class A +;
- climate class T;
- glass shelves;
- automatic defrosting;
- quick cooling function;
- turbo cooling;
- autonomous preservation of cold up to 13 hours;
- freezing capacity - 6.5 kg per day;
- fast freezing function;
- swivel ice tray;
- sound alarm.
The bottom location of the freezer is in the two-chamber Daewoo Electronics RN-402.
Its height is 195 centimeters, but the volume is smaller than that of the FNT650NPB (360 liters). You can defrost the freezer manually, and the drip thawing system will help to maintain the set temperature in the refrigerator compartment. With a drip thawing system, power consumption is less than with an automatic one. Moisture condenses on the wall of the chamber and flows through the hole in the tray at the bottom of the refrigerator. In this refrigerator, electromechanical control, re-hung doors, glass shelves, freezing capacity up to 5 kg per day, and the minimum freezing temperature reaches 18 degrees.
For a big kitchen and a big family, the Daewoo Side by Side refrigerator is suitable. Its peculiarity is that the freezing and refrigerating chambers are located vertically. The total volume of the refrigerator is more than 500 liters. Existence of function of autonomous preservation of cold till 24 o'clock. "Freshness zone"ensures the freshness of products without deep freezing, because there is maintained a constant temperature of about 0 degrees. For this zone a special compartment is allocated, do not confuse it with a separate tray for vegetables.
There are two types of "freshness zone" - dry and wet. The dry zone preserves fresh meat and fish without freezing for more than two days. Wet is designed to store vegetables, herbs, salads, fruits. When stored in this area, they do not dry out or wilt, which makes it possible to preserve their nutrients longer.
In different brands this compartment is called differently, so you need to carefully read the instructions. The presence of the turbo mode, supercooling functions and super-freezing allows you to save food for a long time. Convenient electronic control with display allows you to control the temperature inside. On expensive models installed liquid crystal display. The advantage of such models is the silent operation of the unit. For example, the white Daewoo "Side by side" FRS-U20BGW, having a total volume of 618 liters and a height of 190 cm, is very easy to operate. It has a display on the front side, a temperature indicator. Glass shelves are installed inside the chamber. Despite the presence of an automatic defrost function for the refrigerating and freezing chambers, the unit is economical in power consumption.
Black lacquered Daewoo "Side by side" FRS-U20BEB smaller in size and size (541 l, 179 cm, respectively), but has the additional function of the signal of an open door and antibacterial coating. It allows you to freeze up to 10 kilograms of food per day.
Silver Daewoo "Side by side" FRS-U20HES differs from previous installations by the presence of a dispenser, an automatic ice maker. Its package includes a home bar, LED-display, electronic sensors for collecting information.
Single-chamber mini-refrigerators are very convenient when traveling in road transport and for country rest, they can be used as a bar. The 45 liter chamber keeps food well. These inexpensive chillers have low energy consumption. Single-chamber refrigerators up to 51 centimeters in height and up to 60 liters in volume are produced without and with the freezer compartment. For example, Daewoo FR-052AIXR silver with electromechanical control does not have a freezer, but his energy class corresponds to class A +, the doors are outweighed to the other side. The shelves inside the chamber are metal.
White Daewoo FR-061A, having energy consumption of a class C, can be used both the refrigerator, and the freezer.
Silver single chamber with freezer compartment located at the top, Daewoo FR-082AIX has climate class SN, T, manual defrosting, plastic shelves, mechanical control, re-hung stainless steel doors. A similar refrigerator - Daewoo FR-093R, but differs by the presence of metal shelves and the function of protection from children.
Daewoo Electronics FN15B2B - single-chamber device with mechanical control, has black mirrored doors.
Refrigeratorsto Daewoo Electronics FN15A2W - White color, complete with mirrored doors, unbreakable plastic shelves with protection against spilling, shelf for large-capacity bottles.
The disadvantage of the majority of South Korean refrigerators is climate class T (N or SN is more suitable for Russia), the manufacturer can modify these models to work in Russia.
Caring for a fridge is easier with the "No Frost" function. It does not need to be defrosted periodically, you just need to keep the chamber clean and carry out general cleaning several times a year.
In case of malfunction, you need to contact the service centers, spare parts can be easily purchased in Russia.
Machinery, the country of which is Korea, has only positive reviews. Refrigeration units of this company like the internal size, good spaciousness, doors that can be moved to the other side, quiet operation, efficiency. For some users, the Korean equipment works for more than 10-12 years, then problems begin, but the manufacturer’s warranty is maintained. Like all automatic defrosting, rearranged glass shelves that can be set to the size of the dishes, freezer drawers, reliable electronic control units, external and internal design.
