In addition to Wi-Fi connectivity and unique performance capabilities, a new counter-depth French door refrigerator from Jenn-Air will feature the brand’s obsidian interior. The new 72-in. unit features wireless connectivity and a fully functioning application for IOS and Android devices. The app will allow users to view the appliance status of activated settings as well as provide remote control of refrigerator settings. Users can choose from a range of notifications to receive, such as a door that’s been left open or a loss of connectivity. A special mode allows for remotely activating specific appliance behavior like making extra ice when entertaining or decreasing refrigerator temperatures in anticipation of doors being open more frequently.
The control app can also help optimize conditions for the refrigerator’s contents. For example, the Max Cool setting, which lowers the temperature for a select period of time, can be activated prior to returning home to unload a large batch of groceries. There is quick access to online support and instructions, and the app includes live links to purchase items like water and air filters.
In addition to offering a more built-in appearance, as well as the most capacity of the brand’s counter-depth offerings, this refrigerator’s 72-in. height provides three extra inches that fill the gap 69-in. refrigerators leave below standard cabinets. Style options include a Euro-Style design featuring slightly curved, metal handles, and a more commercial Pro-Style, which includes metal handles with diamond etched grip.
