Before the invention of the modern-day refrigerator as we know it now, icehouses or iceboxes (usually situated outdoors) were packed with snow, or ice carried down from high mountain tops to keep food longer. They would not have been very useful in the dry weather and searing temperatures of our region, wouldn't you agree?
Improved quality living
Samsung's Twin Cooling Plus Refrigerators present us convenience in our everyday living, and go a long way to help improve quality of life, as well as safeguard our health.This rings true especially in the hot climate we experience in the Arab region.
They save us money by extending the lifespan of perishable food products (including leftover food which we can enjoy again later).
This cuts down on wastage of spoiled foodstuffs – and the need for daily trips to the supermarket. As these trips eat into our valuable time, refrigerators thus allow us to rather use that time more wisely.

Probably one of the most important features of your Samsung fridge is its contribution to protecting your health – and that of your loved ones.
The cooler temperatures inside refrigerators slow the production rate of harmful bacteria (which can cause great discomfort or even severe illness in some instances).
Samsung had developed the world's first unique twin cooling system for refrigerators that offer you all the above benefits – and more.The design and technology used by Samsung means that its Twin Cooling Plus™ models effectively control the refrigerator and freezer independently with two separate evaporators while sharing the same compressor.
So, why is this important to you?
Well, firstly refrigerators need moist air to keep vegetables and fruit fresh.
Low moisture in the fridge compartment leads to a much quicker decay rate at which veggies become spoiled.However, moisture, on the other hand, is bad for frozen food being kept in the freezer compartment where more moist air can lead to freezer burn and unwanted ice crystallisation on frozen foods.
Thus, the independent evaporators in Twin Cooling Plus™ refrigerators ensure a perfect balance between the amounts of cool air required in each compartment independent of the other.
In a conventional single system refrigerator, air flows from the freezer to the refrigerator and back again, causing smells and air to mix; whereas Samsung's Twin Cooling Plus™ guarantees odour-free frozen food.Because cool air in the fridge compartment does not travel to the freezer, there is no mixing of odours that could affect the taste of frozen food in the freezer.
Temperature sensors and microcomputers in Samsung's twin cooling appliances detect which compartment needs cooling. These enable the refrigerator and freezer to use power only when its respective compartments need cool air.
This further means maximising intelligent energy savings – making your fridge last longer, and your wallet stretch further.

The Twin Cooling Plus™ system also provides a unique feature that gives you greater flexibility and energy saving.It lets you easily convert the freezer into a fridge while it also helps you save energy (which in turn saves on electricity costs).There are five modes to choose from.For example, the "Energy Saving" mode turns the freezer into idle and the fridge on, to maximise energy savings, while the "Vacation" mode allows you to save energy by switching the fridge to idle and keeping the freezer on.
You too can now choose a Twin Cooling Plus™ product to suit your individual and family needs (and space available in your kitchen).This could mean the difference between wilted, soggy lettuce that goes to the waste bin, and crispy fresh leaves that make it to your plate.
