After spending an entire blog post waxing philosophical about what my dream dishwasher would be like, I realized that we are probably more likely to replace our refrigerator before our dishwasher. The one we have is over 15 years old and occasionally makes a whining noise that makes me pull up new refrigerators on the Best Buy website and start dreaming about what I’d want in my perfect fridge.
This is where it gets tricky. Our house was built in the mid-90’s and we have a fairly small opening where the fridge fits. We aren’t at the point where we are ready to replace all the cabinets just yet (although if someone offered me a full kitchen renovation, I’d gladly give these the boot in a minute). So do we buy a smaller fridge that fits or do we rip out the cabinet over the fridge to make room for the fridge we really want?
The Bosch 800 Series 21 Cu. Ft. 4-Door French Door Counter-Depth Refrigerator has me ready to rip out that cabinet! It really is a dream of a fridge. (This is how you know you’re an adult – when you start dreaming about refrigerator features.)
Obviously the most important feature is that it keeps food cold and fresh. This fridge does that plus some. The revolutionary FarmFresh System™ combines four innovative technologies to keep your food fresh up to 3x longer, for less food wasted.* Because keeping food fresh has as much to do with moisture as it does temperature, the VitaFreshPro™ offers preset settings that automatically balance BOTH temperature and humidity. Another unique feature is FreshProtect™ which absorbs naturally occurring ethylene to slow ripening, so produce stays fresher, longer.
Our current fridge is noticeably colder in the back than in the front. This is definitely not ideal. MultiAirFlow™ in the Bosch evenly circulates cool, fresh air to maintain consistent temperatures throughout the entire fridge cavity, from the door bins to back corners. And since no one likes that stale smell, AirFresh® Filter absorbs even the toughest food odors, keeping your refrigerator and freezer air fresh.
Almost as important as the cooling and freshness system is the layout. I like having an organized fridge, but sometimes it feels like a losing battle. This All-New Bosch Counter-Depth Refrigerator makes it easy to organize contents with ease. It ncludes 5 tempered glass shelves, 4 of which are adjustable and half-width, 3 gallon door bins and 2 humidity-controlled compartments to provide ample space for storing items. FlexBar™ creates extra space in your refrigerator – it’s the perfect home for wine bottles, condiment jars, eggs, and more. Featured on both sets of doors, three wide gallon door bins easily accommodate two large side-by-side gallon containers each and an ingenious three-tier layered freezer drawer system creates extra storage for frozen items, from pizza boxes to frozen waffles.
It even has a few features I wouldn’t have even thought to ask for. The Home Connect™ app allows you to remotely monitor and control your Bosch refrigerator from your smartphone or tablet. Control the temperature, adjust lighting, run diagnostics—wherever you are,** for ultimate convenience. Connected refrigerators from Bosch are designed to give you peace of mind, customization, and simplification.
