NEW PRODUCT: Beko French Door Refrigerator
Beko meets the growing demand for kitchen appliances that promote healthy living with the new environmentally friendly 36” French 3-Door refrigerator. Beko’s remarkable EverFresh+® and Active Fresh Blue Light technology, meticulous temperature management, and precise humidity control combine to keep fresh food fresher up to 30% longer than an average refrigerator – up to 30 days.

Beko’s new refrigerator is exquisitely designed for counter depth installation, has a fingerprint-proof exterior, and offers a new sleek interior stainless rear wall that helps stabilize temperatures. The Beko BFFD3624XSS features innovative compressor technology, extremely low ozone depletion, and efficient cooling while performing as silent as your neighborhood library. And the industry-leading capacity Beko Turbo Ice Maker is an instant family favorite by cranking out up to 11 pounds of ice a day.
