The ‘Cool’ range features refrigerators and freezers and the CoolDrawer; an innovation exclusive to Fisher & Paykel. At the touch of a button the CoolDrawer can be transformed from a fridge into a freezer. The CoolDrawer has five temperature settings – freezer, chill, fridge, pantry and wine. The range of temperature options combined with the fact it can be put anywhere in your kitchen makes it the epitome of convenience.
The ‘Clean’ collection is comprised of dishwashers using the exclusive Fisher & Paykel technology DishDrawer. These DishDrawer dishwashers are designed to fit seamlessly into any kitchen. Each drawer of the dishwasher has the unique function of working independently of the other drawers meaning different wash cycles can be operated simultaneously. The mechanisms inside provide superior cleaning and can tackle any job from fine glass wear to baked on stains on your pots and pans.
