APPLIANCE EDITION BLYTHEVILLE COUEIER NEWS APPLIANCE EDITION Accent Is On. More Frozen Food Space in Kelvinator s '55 Line DETROIT—A new line of relri gerateri for 1S&&5 with increased frozen food space, larger over-all capacity and automatic defrosting in all but three models has been announced b_y Kelvinator. ~ D.~A. Packard, general sales manager, said the basic refrigerator line consist* of eight models in conventional white exterior finish. He also announced a spectacular new refrigeration product called the "Pood- arama," and a new approach to color in appliances. (Details in accompanying releases). Packard said the line was designed specifically to incorporate the three moat important factors influencing refrigeratr purchases, as shown by consumer surveys, latest industry survey, he said, ra- The latest industry survey, he said, rated these factors in order r as more freezing space, automatic defrosting, and greater food storage space. The basic K^TrTa"t»n"me'TncluHes three eight cubic foot models, two tens and three in the 12-cubic-foot size bracket, with each size group up to one cubic foot larger in capacity than comparable 1954 models. 'Frozen food storage capacity in all three size groups has been increased from 25% to double 1954 models. Automatic defrosting is all of the "Magic Cycle" type, timer-controlled, push button-controlled, and cyclic, Packard said. The cyclic type is used in the fresh food compartments of two-temperature re- frigetrator-freezer combinations. In this type of system, defrosting tafces place without user-attention during the off-period of the normal refrigeration cycle. Packard said styling of the new Kel vina tors has been enhanced with new color treatment and more attractive exteriors and interiors. "An entirely new motif in enter- ior hardware is the application to the refrigerator door handles of the aame type of design treatment found in the' finest sterling silver," he said. "By liberal use of the vac- cum process of applying colors to polystyrene parts, the new gold and sea tone interiors achieve the brilliance of jewelry." "There is a Kelvinator refrigerator for evev area of consumer demand—first-time buyers or the trade-in buyer; city 01 rural; small or large families; homes with small kitchens and those with kitchens of unlimited space. "For those who want modern refrigeration at the lowest possible price, there is the eight-cubic-foot mdel KA-81 in a cabinet only 24 inches wide, with total frozen looti storage capacity of 56 pounds, including 37 pounds in the full-width freezer chest and 19 pounds in the meat tray. The door provides more out-front storage with four shelves. D,efrosine is manually operaed. A companion model, KS-81, features in addition a full-width crisper, a butter-keeper in the door, and decorative shclf^fronts. Another 24-inch, eight cubic foo' model, KP-B1, offers pushbutton automatic defrosting for those with space limitations, who still want the most in up-to-date features. "There is an important consumer group that will sacrifice many, deluxe features to obtain maxium storage space at the lowest possible cost. Their need is met by the 10.5 cubic foot model KS-110, a manual defrosting refrigerator in a 28-inch wide cabinet. It features 70 pounds of frozen storage capacity, five door shelves, and door chests for a pound of butter and a two-pound package r' cheese " The cheese-keeper includes a j polystyrene tray with a cellulose sponge in a recess in the base. The sponge may be soaked in a solution I of water, vinegar and salt to keep A REFRIGERATOR-FREEZER COMBINATION — With separate doors for each section, this 1955 Kelvinator offers a 12 9 cubic foot capacity.

'Deluxe in freatares and size is the 11-6 cubic foot model A-120, featuring timer-controlled Magic Cycle automatic defrosting," Packard said. "It has frozen food storage capacity of 80 pounds, roll-out shelves, five door shelves, and butter and cheese compartments in the door. The cabinet is 31 inches wide, and 61 inches tall.
