Here I thought "split-level" referred only to homes-and among the least attractive ones at that. But this particular jargon has made a horizontal transfer of sorts to a very vertically-oriented product: Rangemaster's FxF 60:40 features, a "sleek split-level layout with impressive capacity... perfect for those who are pushed for space, but won't compromise on style." The long and lean fridge-freezer is a veritable cornucopia of functionality.
SFxF 60:40. Designed by Rangemaster.
Let's start with storage. Rangemaster prides themselves on the flexibility of their appliances, and the FxF is a case in point. in-door shelving, bottle racks, adjustable glass shelves, humidity-controlled crisper shelves, and a dedicated dairy niche conspire to use all of FxF's 11.8 cubic foot capacity. Then there's pin-point control over cooling. "Super Cool" and "Super Freeze" options (which make the FxF sound like it could be a super hero played by Sam Jackson) cool foods faster and with greater precision, enabling you to maintain recently-procured foods at their optimum temperature. The unit also boasts frost-free technology, an internal electric control panel, and a door-ajar alarm so you never have to worry about accidentally using your fridge as an AC unit-an all-too-common ecological faux pas. And speaking of the environment, FxF is A+ rated for energy efficiency (provided you don't disable the alarm).
In regards to looks, FxF is one tall drink of water. The piece stands in at 188 x 60 cm (about 6' 2" x 2'). At these dimensions, it may not give Yao Ming any trouble, but it will probably demand an occasional step ladder of lesser mortals. The tall and thin look is trÃ¨s chic to be sure-very European and a very smart use of space. Colors available include stainless, black, and cream, giving you options a plenty to match with your Rangemaster cooktop.
