The vast majority of consumers are positive about Gorenje products. This is not at all surprising. After all, Slovenes have been producing first-class equipment for decades, which is in demand on the world market.

Cooling units have also won good consumer reviews - in the product line of the brand are high-tech devices that meet any customer needs. But which Gorenje refrigerator is better to choose? What are the pros and cons of such a technique? Consider these issues in more detail. 

Distinctive features of brand aggregates

First of all, this manufacturing company is not as simple as it seems at first glance. Today she is the owner of a huge number of patents and awards in the manufacture of household appliances.

Demand for Gorenje machinery
The demand for equipment with the Gorenje logo is well founded and justified by the excellent consumer qualities, design and technical data of refrigerators manufactured by the company (+)

Therefore, the huge demand for their cooling equipment is quite logical. To finally be convinced of its quality, it is necessary to understand in detail all the features.

Creating a natural environment. Almost all models of this Slovenian brand have integrated technology Ionair. Its essence is to create the most suitable environment for storing food products.

The continuous generation of ions prevents the development and reproduction of harmful bacteria. As a result, the shelf life of food is significantly increased.

Gorenje Refrigerators with IonAir Function
The technology creates a feeling of freshness inside the refrigerator. This means that over time the owner will not face the appearance of a musty smell

According to research, the IonAir function kills more than 95% of bacteria. In addition, this way you can eliminate dust particles, reduce the likelihood of occurrence unpleasant odors, and also maintain optimal humidity.

The presence of this design feature will be especially effective if the refrigerator is equipped with a function MultiFlow 360.

Intensive Air Circulation Technology. Thanks to this solution, the cold air stream is driven through one and a half dozen special ventilation openings. As a result, a certain temperature in each of its parts is maintained inside the equipment.

Conditions for preserving products
The dynamic movement of the air mass inside the chamber contributes to the preservation of trace elements, vitamins and nutritional qualities of products

If the intensive circulation system was combined with IonAir, this will create an environment in which the products will be stored for much longer. Indeed, in this case, the ions will be distributed as evenly as possible throughout the volume of the refrigerator.

Therefore, it is not surprising that such a solution is used in all modern models of devices from this manufacturer.

Smart work management. Due to the constant opening of the door of the cooling equipment, warm air from the room enters the device. Accordingly, the temperature in the departments rises, which negatively affects the shelf life of the products.

Gorenje refrigerator display
Thanks to innovative AdaptTech technology, the refrigerator will be able to remember the time of the most intensive use. This allows you to adjust the work and make it more efficient and economical.

A smart function studies user behavior for a week. Next, a specific template is created for work. That is, during the most intensive use of the refrigerator, the temperature inside its compartments drops slightly.

This solution allows you to prevent the heating of its air and create the most comfortable microclimate for food storage.

Power and energy efficiency. Gorenie refrigerators are designed in such a way that their rather impressive volume in no way increases power consumption. To achieve maximum efficiency allowed improved insulation and high-quality door seal.

Energy Saving Refrigerators
Gorenje refrigeration equipment saves energy. Most units are assigned class A + and A ++ (+)

The increase in energy efficiency was also affected by the presence of an inverter compressor and the installation of mechanical or electronic control.

As a rule, the vast majority of Slovenian devices correspond to the energy efficiency class A + or A ++. Thanks to this, you can save about 40% of electricity.

Cooling system. Buying refrigerators from this brand, you can once and for all forget about the need to regularly defrost them. The manufacturer took care of everything and installed the best cooling system.

Due to certain structural solutions, ice and snow does not accumulate inside the freezer. As a result, this significantly reduces energy consumption and makes it easier to maintain optimal temperature and humidity.

Air circulation in the refrigerator
Drying of the air is prevented by circulating the ionized stream. In addition, this solution allows you to save in the products of all their minerals and vitamins.

Touch control. Recently, technology has been actively developing and there is a trend for the use of touch displays. This boom is explained by the convenience of operation and maintenance. After all, a flat screen is much easier to clean from dirt than to wash the buttons and adjustment levers.

Practically all premium class refrigerators are equipped with convenient and practical touch controls. At the same time, the device provides an opportunity to choose a language convenient for the owner, which makes the operation even more comfortable.

Humidity control container. Adherents of proper nutrition will appreciate the presence of a compartment where the humidity level is carefully controlled. It is quite roomy and allows you to save food for a long time, while retaining all the useful qualities.

To control the humidity level, a special slider is used. Dealing with the principle of its operation is not difficult at all.

Humidity control container
Yes, the presence of a container with humidity control will slightly increase the cost of the refrigerator.But such a solution will always allow you to enjoy fresh, healthy and mouth-watering vegetables

Shelves SimpleSlide. Quite practical and convenient to use will be the presence of shelves of type SimpleSlide with adjustable height. The design can withstand about 5 kg. It is an ideal place to store containers of various shapes and sizes.

Bottle Compartment. If you do not want to take the precious place in the door with the bottles, you can place them on a special stand. In this case, they will be securely packed, which will prevent their battle. In this case, the internal space of the refrigerator will become as ergonomic as possible.

Detachable bottle shelf
If necessary, in the refrigerator, you can install a light shelf with cells for horizontal placement of bottles with drinks

Intensive cooling / Multiflow system. Quite often there are situations when you want to enjoy wine or juice, but you have to wait for half an hour until the bottle cools. This problem is solved easily.

To quickly cool drinks, just place them in a designated place. Thanks to the Multiflow system ventilation system in the refrigerator, the bottle will be cooled in minutes. In this case, the internal space will be distributed in the best way.

No restrictions when opening the door. When organizing a small kitchen area, each square meter counts. You can save valuable space by ordering cooling equipment from Gorenje. Since such a technique has no restrictions for opening the door.

Gorenje Outdoor Refrigerator
Due to their design features, Gorenie brand refrigerators can be installed directly in a niche. At the same time, their door will open at a right angle, which will make it convenient to use the device

A carefully thought-out design allows not only to integrate the equipment into a niche, but also to install close to a wall or other objects. Such a solution will be especially relevant for housewives who want to create a minimalist design in the kitchen.

Dynamic Cooling / DynamiCooling. The presence of a special fan makes it possible to maintain the temperature set by the user inside the refrigeration equipment.

This technology is called DynamiCooling. If it is supplemented with the IonAir function, then the vast majority of bacteria and harmful microorganisms will be destroyed. The manufacturer uses a similar solution in all modern models of refrigerators.

Bacterium killing system
Innovative cooling system prevents the spread of harmful bacteria and fungus inside the chambers, so food and ready meals are stored much longer

Boxes and container. Most modern appliances do not have a special compartment where you can put large-sized products. But Slovenian technique is an exception.

The company's engineers built a fairly spacious drawer inside the refrigerators. A dozen kilograms of plums, several cakes or 2-3 geese will fit into it without problems.

An interesting solution was to embed a small container Snackbin. You can store any small products in it, starting from cheese and ending with spreads, sausage, butter, as well as paste. Thanks to the tight lid, the products will never dry and will be stored for a long time.

Snack bin container
Typically, a SnackBin type container is located at the bottom of the glass shelf of the refrigerator. This allows you to conveniently and without problem taking it out, so that later it can be used for feeding

Inverter compressor. These engines have appeared on the market relatively recently. But since their invention, they are actively gaining popularity. The reason for this is their quiet operation and long service life.

To the list of benefits inverter refrigerators It’s also worth adding energy efficiency. For its work, it requires significantly less electricity than its standard counterpart.

Inverter motors are distinguished by their performance.This characteristic gives them the opportunity to quickly cool the air in the event of opening the door. As a result, products are stored for much longer.

Super Freeze / XtremeFreeze. This technology is used in most modern refrigerators. If it is turned on, the compressor starts to work at full, which allows you to freeze food twice as fast.

This feature reduces the temperature in the freezer to -30 degrees Celsius. Due to this, microscopic crystals appear in the products that do not destroy the structure of the product.

Super Freeze Function
XtremeFreeze technology allows you to preserve the taste of food and all its nutritional properties. But you should not use this mode often, as this can lead to failure of the inverter compressor

Freshness Zone and Space- and MultiBox. A zone of freshness is called such a compartment of cooling equipment, where the temperature is maintained at about 0 degrees Celsius. Such conditions would be ideal for storing a variety of seafood, meat, poultry or fish.

And all this can be fresh or pickled. In any case, the container Zerozone significantly extend the shelf life, and also allow you to enjoy the exquisite and unique taste of the products.

As for the compartment type MultiBox, it is a sealed and multi-functional compartment. Here you can store onions, blue cheese, as well as other products that have a specific and fairly strong smell.

Freshness zone in the refrigerator compartment
The freshness zone ensures the preservation of not only the beneficial properties and taste of the products, but also helps maintain the natural moisture and aroma

The container will not only prevent this flavor from spreading over the refrigerator, but will also prevent food from drying out. Well, the lid can be used as an egg stand.

    We have a Gorenje refrigerator, it is small but roomy enough. However, recently it began to freeze very strongly at the walls, although the regulator stands at 4, and there are only 7. That is, the temperature is average, not the lowest. Also, due to the uneven floor, the door moves a little, due to which there is an unpleasant noise. But in general, I like the refrigerator, it has a spacious freezer.

    Burning makes an excellent technique for refrigerators and washing machines. The equipment is a little more expensive than the same plan from other manufacturers, but this is the case when it is better to overpay a little and use it with pleasure. Combustion is a very economical technique in terms of energy consumption. We ourselves have looked after the Gorenje RC 4180 AW. It is narrow but roomy and has a good freezer.
