The Whirlpool WDE 205 CLS 3S Wine comes certified with a 3-star rating which makes it among the more energy-efficient refrigerators available today. It features a reciprocating compressor for maximum efficiency. This results in faster cooling while using the least amount of energy. The removable anti-bacterial gasket and the thick insulation provide a tight seal ensuring efficient cooling for the stored food. Since the gasket is removable,
it can be cleaned periodically, thus preventing build-up of harmful bacteria. What’s missing here is the door-open alarm which is a really useful feature. It alerts the user when the refrigerator door is not closed properly and remains open for a long time. This should have been included, as an open refrigerator door ends up wasting a lot of energy, making the refrigerator work harder to maintain the cooling inside and it ends up consuming more electricity in the process.
