Modern life dictates its own rules, and we accept them, acquiring new and new habits. Someone can not imagine his life without a comfortable car, someone can not take a single step without a mobile phone. But there is something that everyone needs. This home appliances. Few people remember that cleaning a room without a vacuum cleaner, or a kitchen without a gas or electric stove, and, of course, food storage without a refrigerator.
The foods we eat have a direct effect on our body. The fresher the food, the more vitamins and nutrients it contains, which means we feel great. But if the refrigerator does not cope with the duty to preserve the freshness of products, then you should not risk and eat suspicious freshness food. In order not to throw away the spoiled ones, and not to spend extra money on a constant visit to the store for new and new products, it is important to choose the right refrigeration unit.
To date, represented by so many different models of refrigerators that the eyes diverge. Manufacturers have stepped far forward and offer an assortment to the most demanding taste. Any color, size, and run-up prices from minimum to maximum - all this can be found in any hardware store. Today we turn our attention to the model range of the company Beko.
Features and benefits
The Beko company began its activities thanks to the engineer Wehbi Kochi in 1955. True, he was more interested in the production of materials for construction, but he had to quickly abandon this idea. The production of pasta and canned food, too, did not bring success to him or the company. And then it was decided to start producing light bulbs. This decision was wrong and the company began to climb up.
Beko was originally part of the Koç Holding Durable Goods Group. The country in which the headquarters of the organization is located is known to everyone - this is Turkey. Initially, the company produced a wide variety of electrical appliances, and in 1959 the first refrigerator was created. By 1977, the company's refrigerators conquered the domestic market of the country, and it was decided to establish a separate plant for the production of these appliances.
After a short period of time, by 1990, the corporation entered the international market. It was then that Beko became part of a large company Arçelik A.S. Currently, the company produces the entire range of household appliances, widely known not only in Europe, but also in more than 100 countries.
As for Russia, the first Beko products appeared here in 1997. After 2 years, an official representative office opens, and in late 2006, the first plant in the Vladimir region is launched.
Today, the manufacturer produces all new models of refrigerators that meet the needs of people. The company's engineers seek to create devices that will satisfy the most demanding and demanding taste.
The manufacturer has earned its fame thanks to the convenience of manufactured devices and their very compact size. For the most part, they all have a fairly roomy freezer at the top. Specialists took care of creating an anti-bacterial camera coating and using P600a as a coolant. Convenient and simple control does not cause problems.
The refrigerator compartment is designed for a large volume of products, shelves and drawers are provided in it for easy storage.
The company takes into account the influence of modern trends. So, for example, the appearance of the system "No frost"was taken into account, and after a while it was applied in almost all units.
The noise level of the device is slightly higher than that of other manufacturers, but this does not negatively affect its operation.. Another feature of Beko refrigerators is that the manufacturer is still did not foresee the possibility of hanging the device’s doors to the other side in all manufactured models. However, taking into account the development trends of the company, it can be assumed that in the near future these problems will be eliminated.
Technical characteristics of the device largely determine its choice. Therefore, they should pay special attention when choosing. For the convenience of consumers, they are all listed in the technical data sheet of the device.
Undoubtedly, everyone wants to get the most modern device, which has absolutely all the functions. But not all of them you will use. So, what should I pay attention to:
- Spaciousness of products. For different people, this figure may vary. For example, if you are used to making large stocks of vegetables, berries and meat for the winter and not only, then you need a unit with a large freezer.
It should also be remembered that for a large family the volume of products will be many times more than for one person.
- Dimensions. Before going to the store and buying the device, pay attention to the place where it will stand. Otherwise, it may simply not pass into your house. And here you need to know not only the dimensions of the doorways, but also the area where it will be located: whether there is enough space to pass, whether the doors will open freely, whether the outlet is close.
- Number of cameras. Decide if you need a freezer. If you need it, it is better to choose a two-chamber refrigerator. If you do not tolerate freezing and prefer only fresh food, then you need a single-chamber refrigeration appliance. Also, you do not need a freezer, if you already have a separate freezer cabinet.
- Energy efficiency class. This is perhaps one of the most basic selection criteria. In total, there are 7 energy efficiency classes: A - the most economical, G - the most consuming. This is the number in kW, it shows how much energy the device uses during operation. The higher the class, the more economical the device. And this will significantly reduce the cost of paying for electricity. In addition to class A, there are currently subclasses A + and A ++, which are even more economical.
- Design. When choosing a refrigerator, its external and internal appearance plays a significant role. Every customer wants the device to fit harmoniously into the interior. As for the internal design, then your attention should be paid to the presence of shelves, drawers, their material and location. The shelves should be made of durable glass, they should be removed for washing without any problems and you should be able to rearrange them at your discretion.
The boxes should also be of high quality materials, be sufficiently spacious, conveniently located.
- Thawing. With the emergence of the system "No frost"this question has practically disappeared, since the very need for manual defrosting has disappeared. But not all models have such a function. Therefore, if you do not want to waste your time on manual defrosting, then make sure that this function is present in your chosen device. But you do not need to reset bills need to wash and clean the machine from time to time.
- Price. This is the last decisive factor on which the decision on the acquisition depends. The price takes into account the cost of each item. Therefore, if you know the list of basic functions that the device you need should possess, then pay attention to the lack of additional functions. These include: unusual design, built-in TV or display, accessories included.
Knowing clearly what parameters the device should have for your comfort, you can make a choice that you will be satisfied with.
How to setup
The next step after purchasing the refrigerator is to install and configure it. With the installation, everything is more or less clear: clean the device from foreign objects, flush it inside, adjust the height of the legs and plug it into the network. But when setting up the device, you may encounter some questions and difficulties that may prevent the correct functioning of the device. To avoid this, it is worth spending some time studying the instructions and setting up the device.
After switching to the network, the device will start working. This is evidenced by: the inclusion of light bulbs inside the refrigerator, the hum of the compressor. So, after a few hours you can put the products. But there is also a nuance that directly affect the operation of the device, this temperature regime chambers.
When first turned on, as a rule, the average temperature mode is automatically set. It must be adjusted according to your requests.
The temperature in the refrigerator should be selected in such a way as to preserve the freshness of the products and the dishes prepared from them.. The optimal range for this is the interval from 0 to +5. At temperatures below zero, the food will freeze., which is not particularly please you when you want to cook something.
At temperatures above +5, your products will quickly deteriorate. Therefore, set the desired using the temperature controller.
The freezer should quickly turn food into a “stone”, but the ice crust should not form in the chamber, otherwise a frostbite will occur. The most optimal temperature is -18, since with this value the product quickly freezes, retaining its beneficial properties, and the power consumption will be minimal.
Thus, the duration of the freshness of your reserves, the economy of energy consumption and the service life depend on the correct installation of the device and its settings.
From time to time it is necessary to check the temperature balance and, if necessary, to regulate it.
The Beko brand has long won its niche in the production of household appliances, in particular, refrigeration units. Modern technologies have made great strides forward, and the variety of manufactured equipment cannot go unnoticed. A wide range of models allows you to choose a technique that will harmoniously fit into your life. So, let's get acquainted with the most prominent representatives of Beko refrigerators.
Let's start with a review of models Side-by-side. This is a two-door device with a fairly large size. One door hides the refrigerator compartment, the other - the freezer. The device provides filters and air ionizer, which destroy microbes and microorganisms, due to the action of which food spoils. But despite the fairly large size, the energy class corresponds to A, A +, which is very economical. Thanks to the "No frost", which is present in both chambers, you need not worry about defrosting, because ice does not form in the chambers. Products are protected from damage if there is an unexpected power outage, because the high quality of materials allows you to keep the temperature for 21 hours after turning off the power. In addition, the manufacturer has provided the possibility energy savings, thanks to the mode of "vacation." The design is concise, modern. Colors: white and silver.
For small families or for the country house is perfect single-chamber refrigerator.
It has a small size, but despite this it contains a sufficient amount of products.. The freezer is located at the top, and the “No Frost” system is not installed. This means that you will have to manually defrost. The refrigerating chamber is equipped with shelves which can be put on the discretion. Energy class meets type A, A +, which saves costs. A nice additional feature was the ability to re-hang the door on the other side. The appearance of the device is classically strict, and the color is white.
As noted above, in almost all models the freezer is at the top. But there is a series CN, where the freezer is located at the bottom. Devices in this series have an energy efficiency class of A + and can maintain an operating temperature of 17 hours after a power outage. Both cameras are equipped with a "No frost", the cooling systems are independent of each other, which does not allow odors to penetrate from the compartment into the compartment. The shelves are made of glass and can be adjusted in height. The colors are slightly more varied: white, silver, black.
If the kitchen space does not allow you to purchase a large device, then turn your attention to a narrow fridge.
Its width will be no more than 55 cm. The manufacturer has created several narrow series, which differ in the number of chambers (two or one), the defrost system (manual or No Frost). But there are common features, in addition to dimensions. This is a single-circuit cooling system, quiet operation, a large amount of accommodated products, white design, high-quality materials and a high energy efficiency class A (A +). In some models, it is possible to change the direction of opening the door.
I would also like to mention the company the novelty "Beko" - the system "Active Blue Light". It is intended to increase the shelf life of vegetables and fruits. This is ensured by having a separate blue light source in the compartment.. It is due to this light that photosynthesis processes occur, thanks to which vitamins and useful trace elements are better preserved. This system is actively used in the newest models.
Components and accessories
The refrigeration unit, regardless of size and series, can be supplemented with various accessories. Some of them may be in the basic configuration - ice cube maker and so on, and some can be purchased independently.
In almost all modern models, much attention is paid to the hygiene of the internal space.
Therefore, the presence of an antibacterial filter is no surprise. Thanks to him, all germs and odors are destroyed.
Retractable shelves of high quality glass allow you to organize the inner space to your taste. The presence of bumpers will avoid the spread of accidentally spilled liquid to other shelves.
The handle of the refrigerator door can be integrated, that is, invisible to the eye, or external location. Their design may vary in size, shape and color.
Depending on the model, the package may include:
- folding container, which allows you to store small foods or snacks;
- bottle holder - securely hold the bottle, not allowing them to roll or break;
- water dispenser and ice - allows you to get cold water and ice without opening the door of the refrigerator;
- swivel container - A special device that allows you to get any thing out of it, regardless of its location;
- retractable freezer container - the presence of such containers allows the most convenient and optimal use of the volume of the chamber, and it is very convenient to get them, fill and wash them.
- mini bar - a special compartment with a folding door for drinks.
Refrigeration units of the Beko brand have long won the trust of consumers and rightfully occupy leading positions.
Buyers like a stable, reliable operation of the device. Failure of the equipment is not very frequent and not very serious, finding and replacing the desired part is not difficult. The quietness of the work was appreciated by families with small children.
The most popular gained two-chamber devices, in which the function "No Frost" is provided. They are quite simple to use, do not take time for manual defrosting. Excellent modern design allows you to choose a model that fits perfectly into the interior. A variety of models: from large to small, from narrow to Side-by-side, has attracted its customers. Everyone could find the device that meets his requirements.
According to people, single-chamber refrigerators have become an excellent economical solution for country houses. They are quite capacious, and therefore allow you to store the necessary supply of food, that during a short stay on vacation, that during a long stay in the country.
Shelves of the refrigerator are made of shock-resistant glass. It is convenient to put and remove them to place any items; it is easy to wash, and on them there are no stains. This is very pleased hostesses who monitor the hygiene of the space.
Inside the device, the manufacturer has installed a pleasant light, which gently illuminates the entire inside and does not irritate the eyes.
A sound indication when the door is open will work in a minute, which will remind customers that they have forgotten to close it or did not close it to the end.
Convenience in regulating the temperature of refrigerators and freezers is noted by all owners of household appliances brand Beko. Particularly pleased with the accessories included in the package: containers, bottle, egg holders.
On many models, an electronic display is implemented, which is located at the top. It is easy to track the status of all cameras of the device. You can also turn on the necessary modes on the display: the “vacation” mode (leaves only the freezer running), the “vacation” mode (minimizes the power consumption). These advantages brought certain advantages when operating the device.
In models where the display is not provided, it is not too difficult to regulate the temperature regime, thanks to special regulators.
Particularly economical buyers noted that the declared energy efficiency corresponds to the real picture, so that the refrigeration device does not ruin the family budget when paying bills.
And the biggest advantage, which was noted by all owners of Beko refrigerators, was the fairly affordable price of devices.
The Beko brand has been on the Russian market for several years now and at a decent level, it keeps competition with other corporations that produce household appliances. The company's products meet all modern quality requirements.
