Whirlpool is a name associated with the home appliance for years now. Though they are more known for their washing machines, they also make refrigerators which are efficient and reliable. Refrigerators are so ingrained in our daily life that no one affords them a second glance as opposed to the times when it was a status symbol. Whirlpool Refrigerators are so under-appreciated that they are only noticed when they stop working. The refrigerator has now become an inseparable part of our modern lives. The Whirlpool 205 Genius CLS Plus 4S is a medium-sized refrigerator which stands 124cm tall.
The door of the refrigerator is made of strong ABS plastic and is painted to a high PCM gloss. The Wine Titanium is a light burgundy colour made lighter by a faux brushed-metal finish. The result is an attractive look that can stand out in any kitchen in India. This is an ideal workhorse which keeps doing its job efficiently day after day. The Whirlpool 205 Genius CLS Plus 4S is available for a price of Rs. 12,750/- in India.
The Whirlpool 205 Genius CLS Plus 4S is a single-door refrigerator direct-cool refrigerator made of strong ABS plastic and painted to a high gloss.

The handle is molded into the body at the top edge of the door and is painted a dark maroon colour to make it stand out. The visual cues express the purpose of the dark strip over the top edge of the door. A horizontal indent runs across the top part of the door up to 6” below the molded handle. At the back side, the coils are hidden behind a plastic panel, but the compressor lies exposed for better air circulation around it.
On the inside, there is a temperature control knob located beside the freezer compartment. There are two bottle racks and two utility racks, among which one rack has an egg tray. These racks are non-adjustable. There are two trays features inside the main body, the vegetable tray, and the chiller tray. There are two shelves made of toughened glass which can be adjusted to make room as needed. The top of the vegetable tray makes for a third shelf. The door has a lock built-in.
