Outline

This is first in the world to provide a middle temperature conversion room that matches the height of kitchen furniture. It is a four-door refrigerator that is based on a new concept and that has fundamentally changed food storage and accessibility, resulting in more convenient use. The drawer-type middle temperature conversion room features the industry's first smart divider and an easy handle to ensure convenience in use. The ice and water dispenser is the first to apply a double lever for enhanced user convenience.

Evaluation

The feel and finish of the doors is excellent, with the look one expects of high-end kitchen furniture. We admired the effort that had gone into planning many of the features and the way that the design gave full consideration to user needs while remaining neat and understated. However, we noticed that some aspects of the refrigerator's operation require too much movement on the part of the user and do not go well with the overall feel of the product. We would like to see improvements here.
