The fridge compartment is the top part of the refrigerator, with a capacity of 329L. There are 3 wide shelves and 5 door pockets in this compartment.

Compressor and Cooling System

The Samsung SRF5700SD French Door Refrigerator uses Digital Inverter Technology, which is energy efficient and is more durable than a traditional compressor. It comes with a 10 year limited parts warranty.

What we like about this refrigerator is that it has Power Cool and Power Freeze function. At a touch of a button, you can get intense cold air into the fridge to chill foods and drinks within 3 seconds with Power Cool function. Or if you want to freeze your food fast, making ice cream or more ice, you can turn the Power Freeze on in few seconds. And with its No Frost technology, you won’t need to defrost your refrigerator.

When the Power Cool and Freezer buttons are held for three seconds, the SRF5500S's cool air & Power Freeze functions activate.

The Twin Cooling Plus technology maintains temperature and optimal humidity, as well as minimising the mixing of odours between the fridge and freezer compartments.

Noise Level

With the Digital Inverter technology, it is expected that the noise level of this refrigerator is low (or in another word: quiet).

Water Dispenser

Yes it has water dispenser that does not require any plumbing. The built-in dispenser is also BPA free.

Ice Maker

When you purchase this Samsung SRF5700SD French Door refrigerator, you will get a moveable twist ice maker. You need to manually put the water onto the ice maker.
