Maytag Unveils Refrigerator With Everything for Everyone
Consumers Will Get More Out of Their Refrigerators With the Maytag(R)
Ice2O(TM) French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator, the Industry's First With
an External Ice and Water Dispenser
NEWTON, Iowa, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's time-starved families demand a lot from their refrigerators: easy access to ice and water for the kids to cool down after the big game; plenty of room to store fresh food, including large deli platters for entertaining; and well-organized storage that puts everything from beverages to frozen meals within convenient reach. There no longer is a need to compromise on any of these features, thanks to the new Maytag(R) Ice2O(TM) French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator. It combines the best features of a side-by-side and bottom-freezer refrigerator in one revolutionary design, with the industry's first external ice and water dispenser on a French door and the largest-available fresh food capacity. Until now, consumers had to choose between a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water on the door or a bottom-freezer model that offered wider storage for fresh foods, but no external ice dispenser. Resetting the high-water mark for convenience and versatility, the Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator includes the generous fresh food compartment that Mom wants for keeping foods neatly stored and at eye level; the bottom-freezer access that Dad wants for his next late-night ice cream snack; and, for the entire family, the ease of external ice and water. "The triple combination of French doors, a bottom-freezer and an electronic ice and water dispenser on the door has been conspicuously absent among refrigerators on the market," said Bill Deter, vice president and general manager, Maytag. "Maytag is excited to be the first in the industry to make all of these most popular refrigerator features available in one dependable, versatile appliance. It truly is the one refrigerator with everything everyone could ask for." Capacity Plus Convenience A look inside the new Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator reveals not only the largest fresh food capacity on the market, but also a bevy of convenient features perfect for home entertaining -- feeding everyone from the soccer team to dinner party guests. Its Beverage Chiller(TM) compartment keeps two gallons of milk, soda or other drinks colder than the rest of the refrigerator, while its full-width, temperature-controlled Wide-N-Fresh(TM) Deli Drawer offers a convenient place to store platters or deli meats and cheeses. For the grab-and-go members of the family, a Built in Door Organizer holds cans, 20-ounce bottles or yogurt just inside the French door. Meanwhile, generous yet flexible storage space gives users the easiest of access, from top to bottom and front to back. An Elevator(TM) shelf in the fresh food compartment rolls up and down smoothly -- even when loaded with food -- to make room for pitchers of lemonade and other tall items. Easy-glide shelves pull out to make items in the back of the refrigerator as easily accessible as those in the front. Setting temperatures is a breeze with the Electronic-Quad(TM) Cool System with digital external controls. Four sensors continually monitor and adjust the refrigerator temperatures to keep food at its freshest. And there is a childproof lock-out feature to control not only the temperature adjustment but also ice and water dispensing. An ENERGY STAR(R)-qualified appliance, the Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator exceeds federal energy efficiency standards by 15 percent -- helping consumers conserve energy and save money. "Features are one thing, and it is loaded with innovative features, but homeowners will most appreciate the Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator for its exceptional engineering and performance," Deter said. "Its two-door fresh food compartment fits any kitchen layout, its SmoothClose(TM) freezer drawer organizes up to 120 pounds, perfect for stocking up, and its Maytag dependability makes it a great choice for consumers who want to get more out of their refrigerators." Additional Features Include: -- FreshLock crisper drawers with adjustable humidity controls -- Spill-Catcher(TM) shelves are sealed to contain liquids for quick and easy cleanup -- QuietSeries(TM) 200 sound package makes this our quietest refrigerator yet -- PuriClean(R) II 750-gallon retractable water and ice filter removes impurities while retaining fluoride -- Electronic ice and water dispenser fills even tall glasses and pitchers with the touch of a button from outside the French doors -- Other electronic controls such as a Vacation Mode minimize defrost cycles to save energy, Max Cool setting to quickly cool groceries just put into refrigerator and freezer and Temp Alarm to warn if the interior temperature rises to an unacceptable level The Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator will be available in February at The Home Depot(R) and select Maytag retail locations with an estimated retail price ranging from approximately $2,199 - $2,499.
