Perhaps the USP of this refrigerator is its design. The exteriors come with brushed metallic finish and recessed door handles and the backside is completely covered for better safety.
The need to bend down to take vegetables from the fridge is almost completely eliminated, thanks to the bottom-mounted freezer.
The fridge has four adjustable height toughened glass shelves and three door shelves. The bottom shelf is wide enough to keep up bottles with up to 2-litre capacity.
The freezer is also spacious. A flaw however is that it doesn’t have any lighting—which is actually a necessity as the bottom part may not get much external light.
The newer version of this refrigerator- HRB-3404PKG with 320 litre capacity, which costs about Rs., 5000 more, comes with an extra fruit box in addition to the vegetable box and also has an enclosed medicine box that prevents contamination.
