Features

With all that being said about the design, why not let us talk about the features with which the appliance is infused with? Well, Bosch KAN92LB35 has some really impressive features which actually grabbed our attention. Check out the list below.

SuperFreezing:

image5

Let us start by thanking this feature called SuperFreezing which works at protecting frozen food from defrosting while adding new food to the freezer. Not just that, the new food freezes faster as well. The automatic freezing function returns to normal operation once the required temperature is reached and this quality helps in saving energy.

SuperCooling:

image6

This can be termed as a smart feature of this refrigerator. Well, when you activate the SuperCooling function, food that’s just been kept in the fridge is cooled more quickly. At the same time, it stops food already in the fridge from warming up. How can you do this? Simply push the button pushing to 2°C (which is the lowest) to reduce the temperature. However, approximately after 6 hours, the function will automatically switch back to prevent excessive power consumption.

NoFrost:

The NoFrost feature is all responsible to collect the humidity in the air in the central fin evaporator rather than building up in the appliance or on the foods. The chiller is responsible for drawing out the warmth of the freezer area and automatically defrosts from time to time. The resultant condensation is taken to the surface and volatilizes using the compressor warmth in a unique collecting pan. Thus, humidity in the appliance is lowered which means that almost no ice forms.

Multi-Airflow System:

image7

If you are looking for an even flow of cold air in your refrigerator, then Bosch is here with a superb solution. The fan-assisted MultiAirflow System causes mild, even flow of cold air which emerges at all levels of the chilling and freezing area. Temperature inconstancies are minimised and cooling time reduces which will help your foods to grasp their flavour for longer.

VitaFresh:

The innovative VitaFresh cooling tech keeps fresh food fresh for up to 3 times longer. Within the VitaFresh sections, there are two air humidity zones namely the dry VitaFresh Zone and Moist VitaFresh Zone. The dry one is apt for storing sausage, cheese, meat, and fish. On the other hand, the moist area provides an excellent environment for fruit and veggies, thereby ensuring that the freshness, flavour and nutritional value are locked for longer.

Eco-Mode:

image8

Take a bow to the Eco-Mode function of this appliance which helps at adjusting the fridge to an economical chilling temperature. Go ahead and push the button without thinking twice.

Holiday Mode:

Turn on your vacation mood by turning on the Holiday mode. When the function is activated, the temperature in the fridge section is set to approx. +14°C and in the freezer approx. −18°C, which royally protects all your frozen foods and prevents energy wastage while you can enjoy with full energy in the holiday destination.

Team HomeYantra is absolutely impressed by Bosch KAN92LB35, not just by its look (though we cannot get enough of it) but also by its features. This huge refrigerator which is slit from the middle with a westernise look to it is quite an eye-catcher.
