On Tuesday, I was lucky enough to attend an amazing sushi master class at Toko Restaurant in Sydney, to celebrate the release of Panasonic’s new range of French door, energy-saving fridges.
At the event, we were served a delicious, healthy Japanese menu, which was created for us by the talented chefs at Toko. During lunch, the team from Panasonic presented the new smart technology in the fridges. The French Door fridge uses blue and green LED lights to keep vegetables fresher for longer, along with a chilled case that keeps meat and fish chilled, without freezing them.
For lunch, we were treated to a glass of champagne on arrival (indulgence in moderation is healthy!) and had a delicious salmon tartar, which we shared as a starter. My favourite was the new style of sashimi – the food was so fresh and light.
I love that this fridge has technology to reduce energy consumption, as constantly opening and closing the doors can cause the cool air to flow out and waste power. Having a double-door fridge reduces this, and the ECONAVI technology uses four intelligent sensors to monitor usage patterns, and energy output is then adapted accordingly. This revolutionary technology allows your fridge to monitor the level of lighting and temperature in the room, when and how often the fridge doors are opened, and the fridge’s internal temperature. It then analyses and responds to this information to maintain cooling and the most efficient operation of your fridge.
I’m giving away one of these gorgeous fridges ($2,499AUD) on my Facebook page. To enter, simply tag two friends in the comments section before midnight AEST Sunday 26th June 2016 (open to anyone in Australia). The fridge itself has a stainless colour finish French Door and a transparent full-flat glass panel with a design free from frames, bumps or depressions to create a seamless finish. The electrostatic touch control panel has a mirror finish with complete control over settings and temperature levels. Panasonic’s full-extension bottom freezer drawer sits low, making it easy to put in and take out produce and see items in the refrigerator and separate cases in the freezer offer high-capacity and tidy storage options.
