Zone of freshness in the refrigerator -Need whether null zone?

Zero Zone - a chamber in which the temperature is close to 0, which provides better preservation of products.

Where is it located? The refrigerator is usually placed at the bottom of the refrigerator compartment.

why is it useful? This camera allows you to store seafood, cheese, fruit, vegetables, fruits and herbs.When buying fish or meat, these products will keep fresh for further cooking without freezing them.

For a better safety of produ

cts is important not only temperature but also humidity, as different foods have different storage conditions, so this camera is divided into two zones

Wet area keeps the temperature from 0 to + 1 ° C at a humidity of 90 - 95%and it allows you to store products such as herbs to three weeks, strawberries, cherries fungi to 7 days, 10 days, tomatoes, apples, carrots three months.

Dry area of ​​of -1 ° C to 0, with humidity up to 50% and allows the cheese to save up to 4 weeks to 15 days, ham, meat, fish and seafood.

This thing is great !!!For me, much more useful than no frost.Without no frost had 1 time in 6 months to defrost the freezer, and the zero area use every day.The shelf life of products in it a lot more that's for sure.


I double chamber Liebherr, and I built this zone prevents, as it takes a lot of space, biofresh area, the area can be compared with two full boxes in the freezer.For me it's a disadvantage.I think if a family consumes a lot of sausages, cheeses, fruits and vegetables, this function is very useful, but for me personally, there is no place to put the usual pots.(((As for storage, the humidity there is really different from the vegetable compartment.

We Liebherr. The zone of freshness is great! Now the meat is not spoiled for a long time, but the volume of the refrigerator turns less ... it does not bother mebecause foods cook every day new.

I Gorenie with «no frost», area of ​​freshness - a beautiful thing, the temperature - 0, but if you put in the refrigerator for an unspecified temperature, then at the rearzero zone condense as frost and the temperature in this zone freshness shift from 0. Also, it is not recommended to store cucumbers and watermelon, but is suitable for sausage and cheese, cottage cheese, fresh meat, if bought today, and will be ready tomorrow -poslezavtra todo not freeze.

Superzamorozka -Why need in the refrigerator?

Typically, the temperature in the freezer - 18 ° C, so when downloading new products in the freezer, so they did not give up its heat they need to quickly freeze, for thisfor several hours to press a special button to lower the temperature from 24 to 28 ° C, so far as the compressor.If the refrigerator is not designed for automatic shut-off, as the products will freeze, you must turn off this feature manually.

Benefits : rapid freezing of products ensures the safety of vitamins and integrity of the product

Disadvantages : the load on the compressor, it is recommended to use this function in case you want to download a large number of products.For example, because of one of the legs should not do.

In some refrigerators are used with trays cold accumulators, which will help to better conserve frozen and ground products, they are installed in the freezing chamber in the upper zone.

Supercooling: To preserve the fresh products they need quickly cooled, for this purpose there is a function of supercooling that lowers the temperature in the refrigerator to + 2 ° C, evenly distributed throughout the shelves.Once the products are cooled down, you can switch to the normal cooling mode.

Reviews forums:
I often use mode superzamorozki when I load a lot of products, which require fast freezing.It svezhecleplennye dumplings need to quickly freeze them until they stick together.I do not like the fact that this regime can not disable itself.It is switched off automatic after 24 hours. The compressor has a very large freezing capacity, and operates quietly.


when we chose fridge superzamorozkoy chosen without automatic shut-off, so I advance for instructions include 2 hours before loading, then a couple of hours to freeze, turn off.

No Frost system-necessity or whim?

System No Frost (in English translation c "frost free") does not form frost on the inner surfaces.This system operates on the principle of the air conditioner, fan cooled air is supplied.The air cooled evaporator.There automatic defrosting air cooler every 16 hours and thawed the frost on the evaporator heating element.The resulting water passes to the tank of the compressor, and the compressor has a high temperature, it is evaporated therefrom.That's why this system does not require defrosting.

Benefits : does not require defrosting, distributes the temperature in all departments, the accuracy of the temperature regulation by 1 ° C, rapid cooling of the product, thereby providing better preservation.

Disadvantages : This refrigerated foods need to be stored in a closed form, that they are not dried up.

I fridge system «no frost» 6 years and works fine.I never complain, do not want to unfreeze "the old" constantly.

embarrass me expression "fading and shrinkage" my products "fading" do not have time.)))

Cohnut nothing!Cheese, sausage - pack.Yogurt, cottage cheese, sour cream, milk, and certainly not dry.Mayonnaise and butter well.Fruits and vegetables on the bottom shelf, too, is normal.Nothing like this had not noticed ... in the freezer meat and fish laid on individual bags.

drip system in the refrigerator -otzyvy

This system drain excess water from the refrigerator.On the outside wall of the refrigerator compartment evaporator is located, which is located at the bottom of the sink.Since in the above-zero refrigerating compartment temperature, when the compressor is on the rear wall of the formed frost.After some time, when the compressor stops, the frost melts, while trickling down the drain, therefrom in a special container placed on the compressor, and then evaporated.

advantage : in the refrigerator compartment the ice freezes.

Lack : ice may form in the freezer.That require manual defrosting refrigerator.

Every six months unplug the refrigerator, wash it, there is no ice, I like it.
