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 2 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Leaky water dispenser The fridge is well laid out, we like the shelves, how food and everything fits. We really like the slide out bins that use metal instead of plastic. But the water dispenser is a tortured drip. It is constantly dripping and this appears to be a "common" issue when I research the internet. Disappointed? Irritated? Shocked? Frustrated? If I could find one word that connects these in meaning that is how my spouse and I feel. 4/16/12
