Wildly popular in Europe, Beko refrigerators still remain one of the lesser-known appliance brands in America—but as your friends in the business, we think it’s our duty to let you in on all the little secrets about Beko. From enhanced food preservation, to technology that feels like the future, discover 7 refrigerator traits that make Beko fridges one-of-a-kind.
1. EverFresh+ Tech
Get ready to raid your local farmer’s market! With EverFresh+ drawers on select Beko refrigerators, you can stock up on fresh produce, from vine-plucked berries in the summer to earthy kale bunches late in the fall without worrying about them spoiling.
What’s all the fuss about this refrigerator property?
Beko’s state-of-the-art technology uses precise humidity and temperature controls to create a personalized microclimate that extend the life of your produce. How much longer? With EverFresh+ technology, you can enjoy foods for as long as 30 days!
2. Active Fresh Blue Light
The words “science,” “food,” and “refrigerator” don’t always equal a happy ending (have you ever seen a fuzzy carrot at the bottom of a refrigerator bin?), but Beko’s Active Fresh Blue Light is definitely a refrigerator feature worth getting excited about.
The engineers at Beko have developed a way to create light that stimulates the process of photosynthesis, which helps to retain all the good vitamins and nutrients found in veggies and fruits. As a result, fresh produce has been proven to last up to 30 percent longer, so you have more time to savor all their goodness.
3. LED Interior Lighting
If you’re going to go through the trouble of sneaking in a midnight snack, you should be able to find exactly what you’re craving—even when you’re half asleep. Let Beko’s interior LED lighting shine and you won’t have to aimlessly navigate between jars of condiments and containers to find that container of leftover Chinese takeout you couldn’t wait until tomorrow to finish.
Why is LED lighting a refrigerator characteristic worth considering?
For one, foods look more appealing; vibrant peppers become the inspiration for a pop of color on your plate; green kale looks so fresh you can feel the crunch; and meats proudly show off their marbling. If we eat with our eyes first, Beko’s interior LED lighting is a scrumptious appetizer.
Secondly, LED lighting also over-exceeds regular refrigerator bulbs in terms of longevity. In fact, LED lights retain up to 70 percent of the initial illumination after 50,000 years of use. For reference, that would be roughly 5.7 years of non-stop use!
4. Frost Free Technology
The only ice you should have to worry about in your freezer should be ice cream or ice cubes—not ice buildup. Taking time to manually defrost a freezer can be time-consuming, though, and frankly, not something anyone expects to have to do with a modern freezer.
Put the pickaxe down and pick up a spoon and bowl, because the Frost-Free Technology on select Beko freezers does all the work for you. Let’s say you were doing some heavy digging for that tub of gelato you hid from your family. In a normal freezer, the hot air would accumulate, causing temperature fluctuations that not only make your freezer have to work harder but also allow for frost to begin forming.
However, Beko’s Frost Free Technology uses a special freezer fan to drive warm air out, cutting down on cooling time and the possibility of ice crystals growing. Smart, right? No wonder Beko is the only manufacturer to carry a freezer with an ice maker that was deemed ENERGY STAR certified Most Efficient in 2020.
5. Neo-Frost Dual Technology
We’re all guilty of harboring in our freezers what looks like the iceberg that sunk the Titanic at one time or another. It may seem normal for foods to succumb to freezer burn (and to be fair, all frozen foods eventually do), but that doesn’t mean it has to happen within a month after purchasing your bulk frozen foods.
Freezer burn happens due to the loss of moisture every time you open the door, which gives ice crystals time and room to erupt. By using two separate compressors—one for the refrigerator and one for the freezer—Beko refrigerators with Neo-Frost Dual Technology freezers maintain a more even temperature inside both the freezer and the refrigerator.
To help eliminate this window of opportunity, the Neo-Frost Dual Technology has also been engineered to cool twice as fast, so foods in both the freezer and refrigerator stay at uniform cooling and humidity levels.
6. Zone Temperature Adjustability
One of the signature features of a good refrigerator is flexibility. No matter the style, the basic function of a refrigerator is to store food, but the more ways you’re able to do it, the more the value of a refrigerator’s capacity increases.
That’s what makes Beko’s Zone Temperature Adjustability feature so appealing. Advanced controls with precise adjustability allow you to switch up a zone to the exact temperature you need. Whether you choose to chill wine and cheeses, or simply like your water to be crisp, these adjustable temperature zones give you the freedom to decide when and what.
7. Sabbath Refrigerator Mode
For Beko, respect goes a long way: respect for the foods you stock; respect for the quality craftmanship that goes into every appliance; and respect for all the traditions that make the homes of Beko appliances, well, home.
By temporarily shutting off the power supply to lights, fans, digital displays, tones, and the like for a full 12 hours, Beko refrigerators with Sabbath Mode ensure users do not disrupt any Jewish holidays. Instead, a timed defroster works to accurately maintain foods fresh for the duration of the pause.
