If you are a fan of larger America Style fridge freezers, but prefer a more streamlined contemporary look, then AEG’s updated version of their PerfektFit side-by-side fridge freezer could be the answer.
A traditional American Style ‘Side by Side’ model can disrupt the clean lines and break the smooth run of cabinetry because its depth is bigger than that of a typical European kitchen worktop – and it will protrude. However, AEG’s PerfektFitTM offers all the benefits of a top range SBS and will also align perfectly with the kitchen cabinetry.
AEG offers two versions:
1. AEG S95800XTM0 PerfektFitTM European SBS with tall fridge, a freezer and a wine cooler
2. AEG S95500XNM0 PerfektFitTM European SBS with a tall fridge and tall freezer.
Less than 60 centimeters deep, AEG’s PerfektFitTM fridge-freezers offer consumers the advantages of a side-by-side configuration in a size – including door – that matches the standard European counter depth.
And they’ve just got better, winning two of the most important international design awards plus one important recognition by consumers, and updated with A+ energy efficiency, LCD touch controls, LED lighting, new interior design and new handles.
With the trends towards larger packaging, an increasing number of refrigerated foods and weekly shopping, the side-by-side configuration is already popular, growing 60% in volume between 2005 and 2009, according to GfK.
“Consumers like the side-by side configuration, but some have held back because neither American nor European side by side match European kitchen dimensions,” comments Andrew Wasdell of AEG. “If you put them between standard kitchen cabinets, they stick out.
“On the other hand, integrated side-by-side solutions are aligned with kitchen design, but have to be built in. PerfektFit™ is unique because it’s a free-standing appliance, but it has built-in dimensions so it can be aligned perfectly with the kitchen furniture.”
PerfektFit™ has been designed to integrate seamlessly into European kitchens in style as well as size. That’s why the appliance has won two of the most prestigious international design awards, the 2009 iF Product Design Award and the 2009 Red Dot Design Award, and one important recognition by German magazines specialized in home design, the 2009 White Star Gold Award.
“Design is a big factor with the trend towards open plan kitchens,” Andrew Wasdell comments. Appliances not only have to integrate into the kitchen, they have to integrate into the living space.”
