BENTON HARBOR, Mich., June 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The refrigerator is arguably the hardest working appliance in the home, with the average four-person U.S. household using the refrigerator 40 to 60 times a day**. For this reason, Maytag brand continues to deliver unmatched durable and functional features, now at a price point unique to the category with the introduction of its Four-Door French Door Refrigerator with Maytag ® Steel Shelves.
The refrigerator's two signature Maytag® Steel Shelves provide premium style you can see and feel. Taking rugged features typically only seen on the outside to the inside, the steel shelves provide a look that's as durable as it is distinct. Featuring strategically placed under-shelf LED lighting and a powder coat finish, these premium shelves are cold to the touch and built to load up for the long haul.
"More and more individuals are interested in industrial features in their homes. Maytag is bringing that same aesthetic appeal and unmatched dependability to the inside of appliances," says Brendan Bosch, Maytag senior brand manager. "Inspired by commercial appliances, the adjustable steel shelves in this refrigerator add style, but more importantly, reliable, sturdy and better built features."
Families can also rest assured knowing the PowerCold® feature will quickly chill the refrigerator down to the optimal temperature with the touch of a button. This chill factor helps diminish concerns if the family has been grazing with the door wide open and eases worries over food temperature while it's in transit from the grocery store to the fridge. One touch will ensure beverages are perfectly chilled and food gets immediately back to the proper temperature.
Additional features on the new Four-Door French Door Refrigerator with Maytag® Steel Shelves include:
The new Maytag refrigerator is available now at retailers nationwide in stainless steel, black and white, with a starting MSRP of $3,399.
