Base models are usually affordable and easy to fit into any kitchen space. The thermoplastic polymer plastic used in making the body of the refrigerator is called Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene also known as ABS. This plastic responds well to heat and in keeping food safe and protected. It is considered a food-friendly plastic as it can retain the temperature for over 100 hours during load shedding and electricity blackouts.
It has a 100% copper condenser and pipes ensuring power efficient cooling. Copper is the most reliable conductor of electric current used in most home appliances. The rubber lining outlining the opening door and the compartment box together create an airtight seal that maintains cooling temperatures for long durations. It will be able to keep perishable food from going bad for several hours during a power outage as it can lock in the cool temperature.
Refrigerator designs are tailored to improve home kitchen functionality, the French Door design saves kitchen space with its narrow doors, saves power by opening half a door at a time and can seamlessly camouflage into the kitchen decor with customizable counter depth.

Pakistani homes that experience frequent power outages and electricity fluctuations can benefit from this feature.
