Louisville, KY, United States, 2012/03/08 - New glass door and wine-reserve models available this month expand options for luxury kitchens and engaging at-home entertaining spaces (NYSE: GE). NYSE: GE
Consumers need not venture to an upscale restaurant to be wined and dined. That luxury experience can be achieved in a small package, all in the comfort of their own homes. GE Monogram® 30-inch wide refrigerators offer an exquisite design that starts with options like an integrated wine reserve and ends with staple features like a “convertible” refrigerator/freezer drawer, which can be set for fresh foods, frozen foods or wine storage.
“Consumers shouldn’t have to sacrifice gourmet features just because they don’t have the space for larger appliances,” says Brian McWaters, Monogram general manager. “Our 30-inch wide refrigerators can be used as main refrigerators in smaller kitchens, like those found in urban apartments, or as secondary refrigerators anywhere in the home. No matter where they’re used, they’ll be met with features that add an ultra-chic appeal.”
This month GE adds a glass door front option – a company first – to its opulent 30-inch Monogram line. This enticing glass design quickly turns the refrigerator from an ultra-convenient appliance to a stand-out focal point that enhances a room’s aesthetic. All of the 30-inch Monogram models, including the glass door design, offer a flush installation with surrounded cabinetry for a fully integrated appearance.
The many features of the Monogram refrigerators offer a world of delicious possibilities, including:
• Chef-Inspired Food Preservation: Just as you might find in the kitchen of a gourmet chef, the 30-inch Monogram refrigerators are equipped with two separate sealed refrigeration systems to help the fresh food section maintain humidity, while preventing odor transfer between compartments.
• Convertible Refrigerator/Freezer Drawer: Need to store ice cream one week and raw vegetables the next? That’s easily achieved. In addition to a fresh food compartment and a freezer drawer complete with an ice maker, this new line of refrigerators features a third “convertible drawer” — an industry first for built-in refrigerators — that can be set from negative 6 degrees Fahrenheit to 55 degrees Fahrenheit with a simple touch of its digital controls.
• Wine Reserve: Don’t have space for a wine room? Wine-reserve models featuring dual zones allow for storing and serving both white and red wine simultaneously at optimal temperatures. The compartment offers six full-extension wooden wine racks, along with a display shelf, and storage for as many as 106 bottles.
• Style-Forward Accents: The refrigeration panels from GE Monogram come in various options — including stainless steel models with either European or Professional styling. They can even be installed with custom panels to match the homeowner's cabinetry.
The Monogram refrigerators are the first HFC-free refrigerators in the U.S., which means they replace the standard hydrofluorocarbon refrigerant with isobutene, an alternative that creates significantly fewer greenhouse gases.
The 30-inch GE Monogram refrigerators are available nationwide where Monogram appliances are sold. Estimated retail: $6,249.*
