The Science of Ripening
Respiration is what keeps produce growing when it is on the tree or in the ground. After they are picked, most fruits and vegetables will continue to respire using their own natural sugars, which leads to ripening and eventually deteriorating.
We refrigerate fruits and vegetables to slow that process, helping apples stay crisp and lettuce fresh, leafy and green for longer.
By deeply understanding temperature and the core principles of refrigeration and storage environments, we have designed cooling appliances that can deliver the ideal conditions to help food stay fresher for longer, and wine to open exactly as the estate intended.
Decades of innovation and our human-centred design approach have culminated in refrigeration that is flexible in its function, and precise in its delivery of temperature to suit every type of food or beverage.
Stratification is the measure of temperature evenness – top to bottom, left to right and back to front. It is how we manage the stability of temperature against a target range.
A humid, low-temperature environment is ideal for most vegetables and thin-skinned fruits. Wine requires the right levels of humidity to stop corks from drying out and wine becoming oxidised.
The refrigerator is one of the most opened doors in the household. To counteract ambient air entering and the cold air escaping we developed ActiveSmart™ – a clever control system that reacts and adapts to how you live.
