When it comes to kitchen appliances people tend to buy KA after getting detailed information from other people, from market research, and currently in the technology era internet research has its own importance. In this article, I’m gonna give my honest opinion on what kind of challenges we faced in selecting a new refrigerator for us and what kind of information we got from people and market place. So let’s start from the beginning, We planned to get a refrigerator as our previous one was 10 years old and also we wanted to upgrade its size because over the 10 years our family grew in size and obviously we required more space.
We started our research from the internet that which refrigerator should we buy, we found out that there are
Top 6 Refrigerator Brands in Pakistan
We asked people on internet forums and people in our social circle and then we gathered information from the market. We shortlisted Dawlance, Haier, and Samsung. when we started doing comparison we skipped Samsung as its price was exceeding our budget limit.
So now comes a comparison between Dawlance and Haier refrigerators.
At first, we decided to buy the full-size refrigerator that exists in Pakistan i.e, a Double door. But the idea was discouraged by many people because of the energy crisis in Pakistan as if the electricity fails for the majority part of the day the double door refrigerator is also a no frost so there is a greater chance the things will start getting rotten, especially the dealers of the refrigerators didn’t recommend us.
So now we left with the option of a large size refrigerator and here we had 2 brands in options. Now our requirement was an invertor refrigerator as it could save power consumption and we could decrease the load on utility bills by using an inverter refrigerator.
We found both brands refrigerator close to each other look vice but when it comes quality we found Haier refrigerator better than the Dawlance. Here we get a little disappointed because we found out the latest model available is of the year 2018. Production stopped in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic.
After a lot of struggle, we decided to buy Haier Turbo Cooling refrigerator Model HRF-438 IDRT Digital panel inverter. We booked our order and they deliver it to our home. One more reason for selecting a Haier refrigerator was its customer support is really very good. I know because we are already using their AC, Automatic washing machine of Haier (I will post a review). Their Representative comes to home to check complaints in electronics with a fee of Rs.500
- I will discuss its technical aspects now.
- It is an inverter refrigerator so it will reduce power consumption.
- It has a turbo cooling fan the purpose of which we were told by the dealer that it keeps the internal environment of the refrigerator fresh for a longer period. and I noticed it’s true, it’s truly a blessing you can save ur food fresh for more than usual.
- It has a digital control panel on the door of the Freezer Box, you can control the temperature and quality of cooling according to your own requirements and weather.
- It has a glass body which looks absolutely beautiful. It is a reflective mirror.
- It has beautiful LED lights in the fridge section and 2 beautiful white LEDs in the freezer box.
- All the shelves are made up of glass except 1 sliding tray. They claimed that the last shelves which are also made up of glass can carry up to 120 kg of weight so I keep milk pots over there.
- There is also a cute beauty box which is also moveable, made up of plastic.
- All the bottle guards are made up of plastic too.
- There is a big vegetable box, I found a problem in it when u open it u should have to keep holding it if u just pull it out and leave it will fell down on the floor.
- I will attach a detailed overlook in a video, Do watch it.
