Rethinking how to store and preserve your food - Fisher & Paykel was on a mission when it created Active Smart, an advanced refrigeration system. Active Smart uses unique electronic intelligence to continuously monitor and adapt its cooling conditions, adjusting the flow of cold air based on daily use and climate conditions. So it's not working overtime or under par - just smarter and more efficiently.

Even the produce bins provide maximum care. Humidity controls keep lettuce green, herbs garden-fresh and fruit crisp for up to two weeks. What about the homemade gazpacho in the refrigerator, or the just-churned ice cream in the freezer Independent sensors accurately monitor temperatures in both compartments to maintain the safest, most precise temperature.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by below par of our expectation the appearance is good and the built from the outside seems to be roomy inside. however, the inside is not as roomy as it seems. but, since it is still new, the cooling system is okay. i'd like to add, the freezer appears cramped. 5/18/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by gorgeous fridge We recently received our new fridge and love the way it looks, fits and works in our space! If you like a more modern & slim line look, similar to Sub Zero and Liebherr, you will love the F&P. It has more cubic footage than the comps, plus has ice & water dispenser. No other review has mentioned how easy it is to clean inside - its removable bin system makes everything easy to remove, wash and return to its place. The 2 sizes for the ice bin is smart too. My favorite design is the water dispenser, it's practically flush with the door so any size container can be filled (unlike other models). Lastly, the flat door design and rectangular handle are cool looking. 6/4/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by finally a fridge different from others we where searching for a bottom freezer and when we saw this model we loved it right away. Really nice outside appearance really different from the competition. And fits well in the kitchen not to big for nothing the secret is inside... finaly full size shelves what others don't have and best layout in the door is a must. This fridge is roomy inside you wont believe it. Is configure like the fridges where made in the good years in the modern way and it's a succes. good coverage from them is a plus 8/1/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by Who knew you could love a fridge this much? We purchased this fridge for our new house, which came with a rather small kitchen. No one else in the area sold anything like it (both in style and size). It was delivered without a hitch and has been running smooth ever since the initial plug-in. We just love it! It is beautiful and catches people eye when they walk into the room. The inside is roomy and just fine for what we need - juice, milk, beer, leftovers, etc. We did have to remove 1 shelf in order to fit our milk jug and Brita pitcher in there, but not a big deal. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fridge to fit in a small space - it is perfect! 12/5/09
