SYDNEY: In a special promotion running from 1 September until 31 October 2007, Miele Australia are offering a free five year warranty on all models in Miele’s refrigeration range.

“As with all our appliances, we place great confidence in our recently introduced refrigeration range along with its quality and ability to meet the demands of our contemporary lifestyle,” said Miele Australia’s refrigeration product manager, Elisha Joyner.

“The free five year warranty runs for the two month period nominated, to further highlight the quality and innovation of Miele’s refrigerators, freezers and wine coolers.

“The extension to five years instead of our two year warranty until the end of October simply demonstrates our trust in these appliances,” Joyner added.

Miele’s refrigeration range includes freestanding side-by-side, upside down refrigerator-freezers as well as a built-in wine cooler and integrated models.

Offering a maximum capacity of up to 449 litres, the recently released 2007 range of Miele refrigerators and freezers has chrome-trimmed glass shelves capable of holding up to 25 kilograms.

According to Miele, the PerfectFresh zone featured within certain models is suitable for extended storage of fresh fruit, vegetables and meats. The company states that fresh produce can be stored for up to twice as long, maintaining freshness while offering substantial cost savings and potential health benefits.

Another innovation in Miele refrigeration is DynaCool, which maintains an even temperature and humidity distribution throughout the refrigerator.

In Miele freezers, the SuperFreeze function quickly reduces the temperature, while the NoFrost feature is designed to avoid ice formation.

Miele’s refrigerators, freezers and wine coolers are available from Miele Chartered Agents with prices starting from RRP $2,099.
