Refrigerators are the kind of home appliances nobody thinks about until they stop working. And it is a good thing. Home appliances should work in such a way as to provide utility in an unobtrusive manner. Kelvinator Refrigerators have come a long way since the days of wooden cabinets filled with ice used to preserve foods. The refrigerators of today can connect with its owner via the Internet of Things.
The Kelvinator KP202PHG does not have that kind of connectivity. It just does its job without “talking”. It does its job of keeping food fresh and liquids cooled, with minimum fuss. It is your typical double-door refrigerator with a 190 Ltr capacity. The Kelvinator KP202PHG 190 Ltr Refrigerator is available at a price of Rs. 15,490/- in online stores.
The Kelvinator KP202PHG is a double-door refrigerator from the Nutricool Plus series by Kelvinator. Its body is made of ABS plastic and painted to a high gloss finish. The Gulmohar Grey is a deep silvery colour which looks like gunmetal and is decorated with flower patterns which give it a very attractive look. The design runs from the top to the bottom on both the doors. Both the doors open to the right side.
The handles on both these doors are painted silver which provides a nice contrast to the deep Gray colour. The refrigerator is divided into two sections. The regular refrigerator sits at the bottom and the freezer compartment sits at the top with its own door. The freezer at the top features and ‘Manual Twist and Release ice-cube trays. There are two shelves in the main body which are made of toughened glass with the top of the vegetable tray acting like a third shelf.
The glass shelves can be re-configured to meet requirements. The vegetables tray is sufficiently deep. In the door, there are two bottle racks, a utility shelf, an egg tray and a crisper with a cover. All of these racks are transparent. The built-in lock can come in quite handy whenever there arises a need to lock the refrigerator.
