We review the Balay 3KFE566XE
The Balay 3KFE566XE is a very nice and modern fridge-freezer, thanks to its stainless steel design, and it has a capacity of 324 net litres , divided into 237 for the fridge compartment and 87 for the freezer compartment.
Likewise, it stands out for being a refrigerator that includes ExtraFresh conservation technology, in addition to being free-standing and No Frost, which will prevent us from having to defrost it manually in the future and will prevent us from having to worry about the formation of ice or frost. .
A beautiful and practical design
The Balay 3KFE566XE, in addition to its stainless steel appearance, comes with an electronic display on the outside so you can set the different settings and options of the refrigerator without having to open the door.
Not only that, thanks to the fact that it is on the outside, it will also allow you to see the temperature in the two compartments and, most importantly, configure them separately. In this way, you will have a more precise control of the temperature and, if you see it necessary, you can even activate the functions of super freezing and super cooling that it includes.
Apart from this electronic display, it also comes with an external handle that will make it much easier for you to open the fridge. In fact, although it may not seem like it, having a handle that is useful is very important, since nobody wants to spend a lot of time trying to open the refrigerator.
With this handle, opening it will be just one convenient movement, and best of all, this handle blends perfectly with the overall design of the appliance.
Inside, if we look, it comes with LED lighting , which consumes up to 10 times less than conventional light. Besides, this type of lighting is more durable and more effective. Therefore, it allows us to save more on the electricity bill.
Although, in addition to the savings, because it is a colder light and because of the duration, another of the advantages of the lighting that this refrigerator includes is that it lights up progressively, so it will not damage your eyesight or bother you when you open it
A space for everything inside
All in all, the Balay 3KFE566XE is a refrigerator that combines aesthetics with practicality and is very complete. For example, it comes with special drawers so that we can organize our fresh food so that it is better preserved.
Two of these compartments will be used to store food such as meat or fish, since the temperature in them reaches almost 0°C, and the lower drawer will be used to store fruits and vegetables.
This ExtraFresh drawer includes a humidity regulator so you can create the optimal conditions for this type of food, with higher humidity for vegetables and less for fruit.
Afterwards, it also comes with extras that will make organizing it very practical. For example, it includes a chrome bottle rack that will serve to put your drinks and that they are not rolling around the refrigerator. In addition, the best thing about this bottle rack is that it can be placed and removed like any other tray in the fridge, so if you don’t need it, you can always remove it.
In this way, it will be very easy for you to organize the space to place your food, but we cannot forget the other compartment, the freezer compartment.
In the freezer we will see that we can store any type of food, regardless of the container it is in, since it comes with safety glass trays that are between the drawers and that we can use, if we remove these, to create more space .
In this way, we will have room to put any type of container, from glasses to a saucepan, or, if we prefer, we can even leave the open space to put larger or longer foods. Therefore, it is an easy refrigerator to organize in its entirety.
