That’s a bit of a corny headline I know – but I think given the tone of some of the discussions of late regarding the state of the NZ property market and the NZIER report today on the business and economic sentiment we need a shot in the arm!
Great kiwi ingenuity has done it again – the boys and girls at Fisher and Paykel have once again broken the kitchen appliance paradigm and 10 years after launching the world’s first Dishdrawer we now have the world’s first fridge / freezer that can be fitted into a standard kitchen draw – the Cooldrawer. How incredibly sensible and simple is that! – you can as the article says have different drawers around the kitchen set at different temperatures to handle your frozen meats and dinners, your salads and fruits and of course the classic beer fridge.
Best of all is the fact that the one drawer unit can morph at the click of a switch from fridge to freezer so if you have the need to pack up the beer fridge you can convert one Cooldrawer to super chill mode – super fast suitably chilled the bottles, before turning back the nob to a more moderate chill level.
Another smart energy saving element not highlighted in the article that just came to me is the fact that as it is a drawer when you open it, the cold air cannot “fall out” as happens with conventional upright fridge / freezers, thereby doing your bit for the environment.
So I say congrats to the R&D team at F&P as they rightly claim “70 years of innovation” – just a pity that having read all of this great news when you go to the F&P NZ website I can’t find out a single fact about this great new product!!
