How to Choose a Yogurt Maker? Overview of the Best Yogurt Makers


Homemade yogurt is loved by both children and adults. Everyone knows that this useful product can be made at home, in a regular yogurt maker. But not everyone knows how to choose it correctly so as not to make a mistake when buying.

Basic selection options

To dwell on any particular model, you first need to familiarize yourself with the main characteristics of yogurt makers.

1. Power.

The power does not affect the quality of the product and the cooking time. This is purely power consumption. Usually it is insignificant, from 12 watts to 50 watts. Each of these devices is able to maintain the temperature required for making yogurt – 40 degrees.

2. The presence of cups: their number, volume and material of manufacture.

For many, this is the main factor when choosing a technique. You can choose a yogurt maker without cups, one vessel with a total volume of 1-2 liters (we will consider such models later, in the types of yogurt makers). And you can take equipment with glasses.

By material they can be:

  • plastic,
  • glass.

Plastic in the production of yogurt makers is used for food, but glass will always be a winning container.

In count: from 4 to 15, but most often 6-10 pieces.

By volume:

  • the smallest – 100-125 ml;
  • medium size – 140-175 ml;
  • the largest – 200 ml.

3. Management.

There are several control options:

  • electronic timer (time is set on the display – the yogurt maker turns off automatically by itself);
  • mechanical timer (rotary mechanism with numbers – cooking time);
  • without control (switching on and off is performed by the user, he also monitors the preparation time of the drink).

4. Additional features:

  • automatic shutdown;
  • light indication;
  • sound signal about the end of the cooking process;
  • marking of jars (the date of preparation of yogurt is set on the lid);
  • a separate section for winding the cord (when the device is not working);
  • a separate large bowl for making cottage cheese;
  • the yogurt maker is connected in one device with an ice cream maker.

Types of yogurt makers

one. According to the principle of operation, there are:

  • Yoghurt makers that work like a thermos.

In them, the molds are slowly heated to the desired temperature (about 60º C). After that, the device turns off and, thanks to the high thermal insulation of the case, retains heat inside for a long time, which contributes to the reproduction of lactobacilli.

The main advantage of this type of yogurt maker is the short preparation time of the product – 4-5 hours compared to 8-10 standard. But the minus scares away many – the high price.

  • Yoghurt makers at a constant heating temperature.

These devices heat up to an average temperature of 40º C and maintain it until they turn off. The main advantage of these yogurt makers is that even “non-native” cups can be placed in their container (many young mothers adapt baby food jars for them). However, it is in such models that the fermented milk product often overheats, i.e. re-fermented (if there is no automatic shutdown timer).

2. By the number of jars:

  • Yoghurt makers with several cups.

In a special, available in each yogurt maker with glasses, a tray with a lid contains from 4 to 15 cups. They are in demand by families, where every yogurt lover counts on his portion. Moreover, in cups you can make different types of yogurt at the same time.

On the one hand, it is very convenient to take exactly as many glasses of yogurt from the refrigerator as you drink at a time, without getting into the rest, and of the desired type. On the other hand, compared to those devices that come with one large container, before starting the equipment, you need to spend time pouring milk with sourdough into each cup, and after use, wash them all.

  • Yoghurt makers with one volume capacity.

Usually the capacity of this form is from 1 to 1.5 liters. There are such devices, which include only one large container (1 l, 1.2 l, 1.5 l). This type of yogurt maker is ideal when you need a drink in large quantities, for example, to prepare a whole layer of jelly cake, pastry cream, homemade sour cream or cottage cheese. This is the advantage of the device, but different recipes in one approach are impossible here.

3. According to the material of the cups:

They have hygienic certificates of environmental safety and can withstand temperatures from -20 to +120º C. Unlike glass, plastic is a lightweight, comfortable, unbreakable material. However, despite all the guarantees given by the manufacturers, there is a possibility (albeit minimal) of the release of hazardous toxic substances during the heating of containers.

They eliminate any possibility of release of substances harmful to health during the preparation of yogurt. But if the glass breaks, it is almost impossible to find an identical one for sale, unless you try to come up with a new glass container.

In the next article, we will tell you how to properly use a yogurt maker.

What else is important to know when choosing yogurt makers?

  • Think carefully about what additional features you really need in the yogurt maker. It would be a shame to spend money on an expensive device due to the mass of functions in excess of the norm and not use them due to uselessness.
  • When buying the cheapest appliances, be prepared to face the frequent problem of overheating.
  • If you do not want to keep track of the preparation time of a sour-milk drink manually, looking at the clock, it is better to purchase a yogurt maker with an automatic shutdown. This is especially convenient if you constantly spend time outside the house or want to put yogurt at night: in the morning, a freshly prepared product will be waiting for you to wake up. But for a long time it should not stand like that either (it must be put in the refrigerator), otherwise all beneficial bacteria will die.
  • It’s hard without a timer. Only thanks to the exact time, the yogurt will turn out to be the desired consistency and taste (quite thick and not sour).
  • The shape of the yogurt maker (circle, oval, square or rectangle) is only an aesthetic indicator, just like the color of the body.
  • If there are children in the family, take appliances with glass cups.
  • The function with markers on cups, where you can set the date or even the time of preparation of the product, is relevant only if your family does not drink yogurt in the first 2 days.
  • If you plan to cook both liquid drinks and cottage cheese in a yogurt maker, it is best to take an appliance with cups and an additional bowl for cottage cheese.
  • Despite the fairly widespread opinion that it makes no sense to overpay money for a promoted brand (after all, all devices have the same function), equipment from unknown manufacturers can be bad, and the less known the company, the less likely it is to find a service center under warranty.
  • Yogurt ice cream maker is a multifunctional device that families with small children will definitely appreciate. However, in such attempts to combine 2 in 1, quality always suffers a little.

Review of the best models of yogurt makers

The best yogurt maker with one large container considered to be Tefal YG2601 32. The volume of its bowl is 1.75 liters. This is the first device that allows you to prepare fermented milk drinks with skim milk. It is very compact, and its capacity can be stored even in the refrigerator door handle.

Tefal YG2601 32

The best yogurt maker with lots of glasses can be called Tefal YG652 Multidelices 3 in 1. In it, you can cook not only yogurt and other liquid drinks, but also cottage cheese with dairy desserts. It is equipped with 12 glass cups with a total volume of 1.8 liters and contains a maximum of convenient and useful functions: from an electronic timer to a sound automatic shutdown.

Tefal YG652 Multidelices 3 in 1

The two best yogurt makers with mechanical control become Moulinex DJC-141 and Vitek VT-2600. The first contains 7 glass cups (150 ml each) with control markers on screw caps. The second includes 6 cups of 165 ml each and has a beautiful lid design.

Moulinex DJC-141

Vitek VT-2600

the best budget option turned out to be a yogurt maker DEX DYM-107. Mechanical control, 6 plastic cups of 200 ml and a low price – that’s what makes it quite popular among lovers of a healthy diet.


Deciding on the right choice of a yogurt maker when buying is not difficult: it is only important to decide how much you want to spend on it and what features you will need in it.

Refrigerator Climate Class: What Is It and Which Is Better?


Many have come across such a parameter as the climate class of the refrigerator. It regulates the operating temperature of the device. Failure to comply with the requirements due to this parameter leads to poor quality of the device, as well as its breakdown.

Climatic classes of the refrigerator

Currently, there are 4 main classes of devices (international marking). Among them:

  • Refrigerator climate class N. A versatile look for use in temperate climates, without prolonged heat or cold spells. Working temperature range of devices: +16°С..+32°С. The advantage of this type can be considered a low level of energy consumption. Models are suitable for use in residential buildings. But they are not suitable for operation in regions where the air temperature exceeds + 32 ° C (if the air conditioner is not working in the room).

Refers to the most affordable price segment.

LG is one of the best manufacturers of devices in this line. Also good and affordable models are produced by Indesit. However, NORD NRB 120,030 stood out in the segment.

1. Refrigerator climate class N

  • Climate class refrigerator SN. Products of this type can be installed in unheated rooms, as well as basements. Suitable for industrial use. Temperature range for optimal operation of such products: +10°С..+32°С.

Here, Liebherr, Bosch are considered the leaders in production (the best representatives are KIM 30471 SN, as well as KIF 20441 SN and KTL 15420 SN), Samsung.

2. Climate class of refrigerator SN

  • Refrigerator climate class ST. We use at high humidity, high temperatures. Representatives of this species are tolerant of temperature fluctuations. The only disadvantage of this class is that they cannot be used at low temperatures. The use of such products in our latitudes is possible only with good heating of the room (from 35 ° C).

In this segment, the best models are represented by Samsung, Electrolux or Miele. Good products from this group: Sharp SJ PV 50 HG or SJ PV 50 HW.

3. Climate class of refrigerator ST

  • Refrigerator climate class T. Fully adapted for operation in dry and hot climates. Operating temperature range of such devices: +18°С..+38°С. They have increased thermal insulation, which is why the purchase is more expensive than other classes of products. Not suitable for use in high humidity conditions.

On the territory of the CIS, the use of class T refrigerators is extremely unprofitable and impractical.

The best models of this type are produced by Samsung and Whirlpool, as well as some other companies. Particularly popular samples: Panasonic NR-B 591 BR-C4, also Whirlpool ARC 4208 IX.

4. Refrigerator climate class T

Throughout Russia, models belonging to classes N, SN or ST can be successfully used. However, for consumers looking for more functional options, double-labeled refrigerators can also be considered.

Double labeled models: refrigerator climate classes SN, ST and others

Not all models of refrigerators are marked with only one letter. Often, a user who chooses a technique for himself meets the marks SN-ST, SN-N-ST on it. Products with this designation are double climate category refrigerators. However, they are not universal devices. In fact, such products are simply equipped with an additional insulating layer. But they are produced by almost all modern manufacturers. The most versatile are Whirlpool’s WBC 3534 A+NFCX, WTC 3746 A+NFCX, and INDESIT NBS 18 and INDESIT BIAA (SN-ST class). They operate in the temperature range +16°С..+43°С degrees.

In operation, they often consume a larger amount of electricity, often form an increased amount of condensate. In addition, such models cost their owners an order of magnitude more expensive than those produced with conventional markings.

Domestic units, which are also suitable for operation in our climatic conditions, have a different marking – UHL (moderately cold) or O (general climatic). They work well at low temperatures, can be installed even in poorly heated rooms, and the power consumption is also low.

Refrigerator video ATLANT XM6025

Among the devices that are optimal for the Russian climate, samples from Atlant are worthy of attention. They are easy to use, inexpensive and very practical. You can learn more about one of them from this material:

The video describes the main strengths of this product, as well as accurately indicates the technical parameters of the selected model.

Today, the industry offers customers many versions of devices with different markings for the climate class. It is on it that you should pay attention first of all, choosing a model clearly for your operating conditions. This approach will ensure high efficiency of the device and a long service life.

How to Choose a Thermopot for Your Home: What to Look For


Thermopot is a hybrid of a kettle and a thermos, which can perfectly replace a bulky cooler in the office. Its main task is not easy to boil water, but to constantly keep it hot. Before choosing a thermo pot for your home or office, you should immediately decide – if you need boiling water to make 3-4 cups of tea or coffee a day, then you should not overpay, it will be enough to buy an ordinary electric kettle, it will easily cope with this task. Another thing is a large family, a small cafe or office, in which case the thermopot fully justifies its purpose.

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look forHow to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

Purpose and device

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

Thermopot eliminates the main disadvantage of an electric kettle – it heats up quickly, but also cools down quickly. Therefore, you have to wait until it boils again. As experience shows, thermopots also save electricity. They not only constantly heat up, but also, thanks to special thermal insulation, do not allow the water to cool down too quickly. True, the device turns out to be much larger and heavier than an electric kettle, it requires stationary placement and a permanent connection to electricity. In addition, water must be poured into it using a special container / watering can; it cannot be substituted under a stream from a tap. The supply of boiling water can be either automatic or manual.


Immediately select the place where the device will stand and measure the distance to the outlet so that the length of the cord is enough. Well, if there is a special compartment where you can hide the extra length of the cord.

Consider the main parameters that you should pay attention to when choosing a thermopot.

Tank volume

Now on the market you can buy a thermal pot with a capacity of 2 (it simply does not make sense to take less, otherwise you will have to add water very often, and the thermopot itself will be used inefficiently, actually working in electric kettle mode) up to 8 liters. The choice of capacity depends on how many people need to be provided with hot water. Usually, the volume is chosen based on the norm of 1 liter (1.5 for big fans of hot drinks) per person. Then it will be possible to refuel at the beginning of the day and the rest of the time just use it.


Power affects the heating rate, the higher it is, the faster the water boils, which is especially important for bulk thermopots. The maximum recommended power is 1000 watts.

Heating element

Now only in cheap models of little-known manufacturers can you find an open spiral in a tank for heating water. Almost all modern models of thermopots have heating discs.

Separately, it is worth noting the models of thermopots with two heating elements (heater). One is powerful, which allows you to quickly heat water. The second is to work in standby mode in order to maintain the set temperature. This design allows not only to maintain the required temperature, but also to further save energy.

Production material

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

The body is made of metal, plastic, glass, or combinations thereof. It is much more important what the tank is made of, in which water is boiled. In cheap models, it is made of food-grade plastic, so over time, water can acquire a specific taste. In addition, the service life of such models is short. Particular attention should be paid to the temperature of the case – if the case heats up when checking in a store, then the thermal insulation is poorly made. Therefore, the thermopot will turn on more often to heat the water – and this is an additional consumption of electricity. In good models, the case practically does not heat up during operation.

In high-quality models, the tank is made of glass (it is more suitable for water, but requires careful attention due to its fragility) or metal.

Water supply method

In different models, the methods of supply are different – it depends on the type of pump (pump) installed:

  • Automatic – an electric pump is installed in such a thermopot, and the water itself begins to flow after the cup is placed in a certain place.
  • Semi-automatic – an electric pump is also installed here, but the flow starts after pressing the button.
  • manual – water is supplied by a mechanical pump, the user himself needs to press the lever or handle several times. The advantage of this method is that the supply occurs even when the thermopot is disconnected from electricity.

Additional functions

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

How to choose a thermopot for your home: what to look for

The set of functions in thermopot models may vary, the more additional functionality, the more expensive the model will be:

  • Temperature selection – the adjustment allows the user to set the temperature of the water to be maintained. The standard temperature range is 50°C to 90°C. The adjustment can be either stepwise, setting only certain temperature values ​​​​through a given number of degrees (most often – after 10 ° C), or smooth.
  • Adjustment of the portion of water – available in thermo pots with automatic water supply, allows you to pour from 120 to 300 ml of water at a time (several values ​​are available).
  • Interlocks – at least one (and it is available in almost all models) – turning off the device when the water level in the tank is insufficient. Another blocking is protection against overheating. If the family has a small child, then a child lock is required. The top cover has a special latch that blocks its accidental opening during water heating.
  • Two reservoirs – in one there is constantly boiling water, and in the second the user can set the required temperature himself.
  • Digital display – in most cases displays information about the current temperature value. In addition, it can inform the user about what processes are currently running.
  • Turn-on timer – allows you to set the turn-on time, for example, the water will boil by the return of family members home or by the arrival of employees at work.
  • Built-in filter – allows you to purify water from impurities, although this may reduce pressure and increase the time it takes to fill a cup. At the same time, the filter will have to be washed or changed monthly, and in some models it is structurally placed not very well, to get to it, you will have to disassemble a significant part of the device.
  • Self-cleaning – some thermopots have a function of signaling the need for descaling. As in the case of electric kettles, you can use special tools, or you can get by with folk methods.


To avoid scale formation, it is necessary to use filtered (prepared) water.


Why Does the Refrigerator Not Work, but the Freezer Works.


The situation when the refrigerator breaks down is always unexpected and unpleasant. Especially on the eve of a big feast or in a big heat, when you need to carefully monitor the freshness of products. Often, users are faced with a different problem when the freezer works, and the refrigerator practically does not cool. How to determine the cause?

Why is the refrigerator not cooling well?

Such a breakdown is rarely immediately noticed, since the health indicator is not the indicators on the thermometer in the refrigerator, but the freezer, which continues to work well. A difference of several degrees is difficult to feel for an ordinary person, but the food in the refrigerator deteriorates literally before our eyes.

Why does the refrigerator not work, but the freezer works.

If a malfunction is detected, you need to find out as soon as possible the reason why the refrigerator does not freeze. Postponing repairs will result in complete failure, and then the owner will have to spend a lot on repairs, if at all.

Here is a list of possible reasons why the refrigerator stopped freezing:

  • Poor closing of the door. It is possible that a foreign object has fallen under the rubber band of the door, which prevents the hermetic slamming of the door. Check not only its absence, but also the integrity of the protective gum. Punctures, tears or flaking contribute to the release of cold air to the outside;
  • High temperature in the room. More typical for single-chamber models. If the refrigerator is near a hot battery or the room is very warm, and the freezer is set to maximum freezing, the electrical motor cannot cope with the high load. Try to choose a more gentle mode of operation. Complete defrosting for at least 10 hours will not interfere. After that, set the desired temperature again and turn on the device. Do not forget about the thermal insulation of batteries near the refrigerator.
  • Another reason why the refrigerator does not cool may be damage to metal cooling elements and freon leakage. This could happen if, during defrosting, you removed the ice from the cooling grate with a knife or other metal objects. In this situation, you can not do without the help of a qualified master. But you can solve the problem without huge costs. It will be necessary to seal the damaged area of ​​the cooling element and refill the system with freon. If you don’t want your refrigerator to stop freezing, never force the ice to peel off when defrosting. It is better to wait for complete thawing and then easily remove the lagging ice.

Why does the refrigerator not work, but the freezer works.

The described breakdowns are typical for both single-chamber and two-chamber refrigerators. Basically, such a failure is associated with improper operation, non-compliance with sanitary standards for use and can be independently diagnosed and prevented.

But it happens that the refrigerator does not cool, although all the norms are met and there are no visible reasons for the malfunction. In this case, you need to more carefully examine the electrical appliance and analyze its operation. Most likely, it will not be possible to repair at home without a master, but you will be able to estimate the cost and duration of the upcoming repair.

Complex technical problems

If the refrigerator began to freeze poorly, its breakdown may be associated with one of the key structural elements. Let’s look at the main problems with the motor that lead to the fact that the refrigerator does not cool the air to the desired temperature – fan motor failure.

In this case, you will not hear the characteristic sound that the fan makes during operation. The breakdown occurs due to the freezing of the element and requires its mandatory replacement by a specialized master.

Since the motor does not run constantly, but turns on only periodically, in order to determine the malfunction, you need to carefully listen to the operation of the refrigerator. You can try turning off the refrigerator and completely defrost it for 10 hours. If even after defrosting and restarting the situation does not improve, a repairman should be called.

Compressor failure is another issue.

A single-chamber refrigerator has one compressor, so its breakdown is immediately visible, since the refrigerator does not cool the air either in the freezer or in the refrigerator and quickly makes itself felt with a leak. A two-chamber refrigerator, such as Indesit and other high-performance brands, has two compressors, separately for the refrigerator and freezer. If the temperature of the refrigerator compartment does not match the settings, the compressor could fail. The problem is solved by replacing the element.

Quite often the refrigerator does not cool due to blockages in the cooling system. The capillary tube through which the refrigerant circulates tends to become clogged. An experienced craftsman can easily fix the problem with special equipment.

Why does the refrigerator not work, but the freezer works.

Often the cause of a breakdown can be a refrigerant leak in the evaporative system of the refrigerator. Leaks can occur for a variety of reasons, but mostly due to system wear and tear. You can detect such a breakdown not only by checking the temperature of the refrigerator compartment, but also by rusty smudges inside the freezer compartment, if it is located below. In addition, you can see water or oil smudges under the refrigerator itself.

Special attention is paid to malfunctions of various sensors and thermostats. Since there may be several of them in different models of refrigerators, for example, Samsung, their failure entails a change in temperature, ice, snow, smudges, continuous fan operation or long pauses between engine start cycles.

In any of the above cases, you should not delay the moment of meeting with the repairman. Not everyone will be able to replace it on their own or solve the problem in any other way, and the operation of a refrigerator with a faulty element increases the load on other systems of an electrical appliance and can lead to a final failure without a chance for repair.

What to do if the refrigerator is not cold?

If you notice a significant change in temperature, you should first check:

  • Clearly determine that the refrigerator is not working, but everything is in order with the freezer;
  • Perhaps there are heaters next to the refrigerator. Batteries must be insulated;
  • Check the integrity of the sealing gum on the door;
  • Check all the buttons for adjusting modes and temperatures;
  • Determine if there is ice and snow in the freezer. Try setting the freezer temperature to a higher temperature. It may happen that the motor simply cannot cope with the load when the refrigerator does not cool the air, and the freezer is operating in intensive mode;
  • Inspect the refrigerator externally for rusty, oily or other smudges;
  • Is there any deformation of the elements and the inner surface of the refrigerator.

Having correctly determined the nature of the breakdown, you can immediately report it to the master so that he can take with him the components necessary for replacement. A quick response will help you avoid costly and lengthy repairs.

Power Consumption of the Refrigerator. What Is the Average Capacity of the Refrigerator?


Every economical owner is interested in how much power his electrical appliance consumes. The power consumption of the refrigerator is determined by a number of indicators. For example, the freezing power depends on it. The power of the refrigerator is also affected by overall productivity, energy consumption and energy efficiency. The presence of additional functions also affects the studied parameter.

The power of household refrigeration units and what it depends on

Refrigerator power consumption is the total amount of electrical energy that it consumes during operation. This electrical appliance consists of other devices that also consume energy: compressors (one or more), heaters, fans.

Power consumption of the refrigerator.  What is the average capacity of the refrigerator?

The considered parameter consists of:

  • the capacities of the above devices, the external dimensions of the refrigerator;
  • thermal insulation seal;
  • the presence of additional functions and the presence of the No Frost system;
  • the amount and temperature of food placed in the refrigerator;
  • operating conditions and time of year.

There is an average power of the refrigerator, which is stated in the instructions. Its size in most cases does not exceed 250 watts. Along with this power, you may encounter the real power of the refrigerator. It is capable of reaching 500 watts. The most significant share of energy consumption is determined by the power of the compressor of the refrigerator.

How is the capacity of a refrigerator measured? Of course, in units of power well known in physics – in watts (W). In order to determine the indicator of the average power of an electrical appliance, it is necessary to establish how much electricity in kilowatts the unit consumes per day.

To find out by measuring how much power the refrigerator has, you can use a device called a multimeter. This meter measures the refrigeration circuit while the compressor is running. The values ​​​​that you get must be multiplied by the value of the mains voltage, equal to 220 volts. Although it must be taken into account that when the compressor is started, a current will flow through the circuit that is 2-3 times higher than the nominal voltage value. In view of this, the resulting readings will require multiplication by 3.

A special sticker should inform about the power consumption of the refrigerator, which is often located on the outer wall (sometimes in the chamber) of the electrical appliance. You can find the same data in the instruction manual that comes with your household appliance.

In the above manual, as a rule, they indicate the maximum power (it is fixed at the moment the compressor is turned on) and the power of the refrigerator, which is called the nominal average. The standard values ​​for these capacities are as follows: 0.3 kW per hour for the maximum and from 0.1 to 0.2 kW per hour for the average nominal. The use of the concept of maximum power consumption is due to the fact that the compressor operates intermittently. This happens only after special sensors signal a change in temperature.

Refrigerator freezing power

The freezing power is measured in kg/day. Different devices have different capacities and freezing technologies, so, for example, the Indesit brand can handle 30 kilograms per day, LG can cool up to 17 kg of food in the same time period, Bosh and Atlant 20-22 kg. In the instructions, the parameter is marked with an X and three ***, it can also be found on the information line pasted on the refrigerator.

Economy class

The efficiency class is usually understood as a conditional indicator that characterizes the consumption of electrical energy by a refrigerator. To designate this class, capital Latin letters were adopted: starting from A and ending with G. The following three classes have recently been added to the old 7 classes (A +++, A ++ and A +). The efficiency of these classes is higher than A. Thus, the capacity of the refrigerator in kWh per year for the LG brand, belonging to class A, is 350-360 kW per year.

The values ​​that are given for these letters determine the average power consumption of the refrigerator. This so-called average refrigerator power input for a class D refrigeration unit is taken as 100%. Relative to this class, the energy consumption values ​​measured in kW per hour are 55% less for class A, 65% for A+, 85% for A++ and 95% for A+++. For convenience, refrigerator manufacturers highlight all the classes in question with a color. The differences between the classes in the electrical energy they consume are significant.

The video describes the efficiency classes of modern refrigerators: from A +++ to D in decreasing order of efficiency. It is also said that the stationary cooling system is more economical than No Frost.

Recommendations for reducing the energy consumption of the refrigerator

There are a number of recommendations aimed at reducing the energy consumption of your refrigerator.

  1. It is important to open the door of the household appliance in question for the shortest possible time and the minimum number of times.
  2. Its ventilation grilles must be kept open. It is known that the air that heats its rear wall needs absolutely free circulation so that the electrical appliance we are studying can be turned off as rarely as possible.
  3. Before moving into the device in question, the products must be allowed to cool.
  4. Ice that accumulates in the freezer, on the evaporator, must be removed at least once a month.
