This KitchenAid Architect Series II stainless steel French door refrigerator from surpasses minimum Federal Energy Standards by 25%. the Preserva® Food Care System maximizes the freshness of produce and stored food. The Preserva Food Care System offered in these new French door refrigerator models has been rengineered to extend the life of refrigerated & frozen foods by taking on three key issues that are essential in a refrigerator for food protection: moisture levels in the surrounding air, ethylene (the gas produced by fruits that continue to ripen after they are picked. Exposure to ethylene causes other fruits and vegetables to ripen and even decay more quickly) and odors. This refrigerators' multiple evaporators provide independent cooling to help prevent refrigerator air from mixing with the air in the freezer compartment. This keeps the more humid air needed to keep fresh ingredients in the refrigerator while safekeeping the freezer compartment from humidity to reduce freezer burn. This unique system combines three specialized features including an ethylene-absorption cartridge that helps extend the freshness of produce by up to 25%.
