A refrigerator that retains freshness, keeping food and vegetables cool for up to seven hours during long power cut, has been brought onto the Ghanaian market by LG Electronics, dealers in Consumer Electronis and Home Appliances.
Evercool refrigerator has a Triple cooling system with three evaporators.
The main evaporator works with power and other two evaporators works without power. During power cut, compressor stops compressing refrigerant and instead the 2 evaporators on the sides take over to keep circulating cool air.
At the launch of the Product in Accra over the weekend, Mr. C.H. Park, Branch Manager, LG Electronics Africa, said: LG Evercool refrigerator comes with Tower LED, Multi air flow, Convertible box for optimal temperature from -10C to 40C which is being controlled by exclusive cold air duct for a suitable condition for food.
“Accessing fresh foods has proven to be difficult for many households in Ghana as many have constantly had to throw away food from their refrigerators due to frequent power cuts.
The Refrigerator also has a moist balance crisper box which controls the humidity level in the box in order for the vegetables and fruits to stay fresh for a long time. It also sports a high gloss finish creating an opulent glow that accentuates the décor of the consumers’ living space,” he said
Mr Park said, “We manufacture products that fit the needs of Ghanaian consumers and this launch is another benchmark innovation based on customer’s insights.”
Mr. Pranab Mohanty, Vice President, Somotex Ghana Limited said: “With LG Ever cool Refrigerators we are sure that households will manage to keep their food fresh and healthy during power outages. This unique LG patented technology offers Cooling Retention up to 7 hours in the refrigerator and 10 hours in the freezer portion to keep food fresh and healthy.”
He said more than one billion tons of food is wasted annually in Africa due to poor storage facilities and limited cold storage.
Owing to the fact that it can optimize and keep temperature lower than 20C to 100C for 7 hours in fridge section and -180C to -90C in freezer during power cut, LG Evercool refrigerator is capable of saving users money as it reduces unwanted food wastage.
LG Evercool refrigerator also comes with a Low Voltage Stabilizer (LVS); LG LVS prevents the compressor from excessively low voltage or high voltage supply (135v – 290v); and therefore performs efficiently even in very low voltage conditions.
Mr Mohanty said to ensure that the consumers’ celebration of health and freshness continue for a decade, the LG Evercool refrigerator comes with 10 years warranty on its compressor thereby giving consumers more reasons to smile.
He said the Complete Range of LG Evercool Refrigerator will be available at all the state-of-the-art LG Exclusive stores, Electromart stores, Somotex and Somotex dealers across Ghana.
