BENTON HARBOR, Mich., Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ –The newest collection of high-end under counter refrigeration appliances from Jenn-Air offers a range of options for keeping favorite beverages and ingredients close at hand both in the kitchen and beyond. Latest offerings include an under counter refrigerator model with a glass door option, wine cellars, beverage centers and double refrigerator drawers.
“We designed our latest collection to elegantly blend into any area of the home,” says Jenn-Air marketing director Brian Maynard. “Whether installed in the kitchen, a media room or entertaining area, these models deliver elevated design and performance features that consumers expect from a luxury brand.”
Wine cellars, beverage centers and under counter refrigerators all feature the brand’s innovative multi-pivot, articulating door hinge allowing for zero clearance and maximum convergence. This thoughtful hinge design makes it possible for installation that’s flush with the cabinet’s front and adjacent surfaces resulting in seamless integration of the refrigeration into its surroundings. In addition, the articulating hinge design allows for maximum access to contents while also helping the door swing closed to a secure seal.
Dual zone temperature systems found throughout the line provide independent temperature zones for optimal storage of a variety of wines and ingredients in ideal climates. Two fans and two electronic sensors combined with an insulated separator help maintain distinct temperatures on the top and bottom chambers.
Additional luxury features found in this latest collection include soft, auto-close doors that slowly draw the door to a fully closed position when the door swing reaches approximately 20 degrees. This helps protect wines and other sensitive ingredients from unwanted temperature changes by preventing doors from being left ajar. Ultra-glide soft, auto-close racks with beechwood tines found on the wine cellars and beverage centers limit vibration and allow for smooth operation even when fully loaded.
Refrigerator drawer models feature soft, auto-close drawers that are fully-extendable for easy access to ingredients. Other thoughtful features on these latest models include a Max Cool option that reduces internal temperatures to the lowest setting for 24 hours to help maintain temperatures during heavy use and a Door Open Alarm that signals if the door remains open more than 10 minutes. A Sabbath Mode allows the doors to be opened or closed during the Sabbath or other religious holidays without directly turning on or off any lights, digital readouts, solenoids, fans, valves, compressor, icons, tones or alarms.
Also found throughout the new collection are light-guided electronic controls with temperature presets that provide both concealed design and intuitive response for easy temperature adjustment.
