COURIER NEWI FRIDAY, APRIL 80, 1954 Refrigerator - Freezer Combinations Lead '54 Four combination refrigerators with zero food freezers are deluxe •tyle leaders of a completely new 1954 series of nine refrigerators produced by Hotpotnt Co. in a multimillion dollar factory recently .opened in Chicago. Frestt wad frozen food capacities range from 7.8 cubic feet to 11.5 cubic feet. One top deluxe model will preserve up to 88 pounds of frozen food at zero degrees, the largest frozen food capacity of any Hot- p^int refrigerator ever produced and one of the largest in the industry. For the first time in the 45-year history of Hotpoint, both white and colored interiors are being offered. A soft pastel green is available on five of the nine new models. In addition to such use-value features as swing-out storage pans, heated butter bins, all-aluminum sliding shelves, built-in foil dispensers, -; completely automatic and pushbutton defrost systems and telescoping shelves, Hotpoint refrigerators for 1954 conform to a new functional-modern styling treatment developed to utilize advanced methods of quality mass production. Clean, unbroken lines of this new design blend readily with .modern kitchen assemblies, speed routine. cleaning and insure longer style life of the appliance. 96 -Pound Freeter Top deluxe model of the new 1954 series is a two-door refrogera- tor-freezer with a completely au. tomatic defrost and water disposal system. This unit will safely store 88 pounds of frozen foods in • the top freezer section for extended periods. A door shelf on the freezer door holds cans of frozen juices, small frozen food packages and quart cartons of ice cream. A swing-out "Meat Mart" tray in the top right corner of the fresh food compartment gives finger tip storage of fresh meat and poultry. Temperature and humidity indicators built into the lower door show that the cooling system is maintaining correct conditions for good food preservation. Three, full- width door shelves ar,e deep enough to hold quart, milk cartons, soft drinks, leftover jars and other small food containers. A removable egg crate insert is provided in one shelf for convenient egg storage and easy cleaning. In addition to new sliding all- aluminum shelves, this model has a divided full-width lower shelf that provides extra room for such bulky articles as watermelon, turkey, extra-tall bottles and large molded salads. A small folding shelf in the upper left corner of the fresh food compartment gives convenient storage space for cheese containers, salad dressing jars and leftovers. Total shelf area in this combination model is over 18 square feet. Aluminum evaporators, used on all 1954 Hotpoint refrigerators, will not rust and have 4 times more conduction than steel evaporators currently in general market use. Separate Freezer Doors Three other large capacity models with true food freezers have one outer door with a separately insulated inner freezer door. Fresh and frozen food capacities in these units range from 10.1 to 11.5 cubic feet. Each model will store up to 74 pounds of frozen food. Depending on size, these combination units have as standard equipment: three to five door shelves, butter bins, built-in foil dispensers, leftover jars, sliding shelves, vegetable pans, swing-out meat containers and freezer indicator thermometers. Two of these models are available with "Capri" green interiors. Three 10.5 cubic foot medium- priced refrigerators included in the 1954 Hotpoint line are available with pushbotton or manual defrost systems, three door shelves, butter bins, sliding shelves and vegetable pans. All three will preserve np to 49 pounds of frozen food. The pushbutton defrost model (4EC105- uses an enclosed heating unit (similar to Calrod units on Hotpoint electric ranges) to achieve efficient defrosting in a minumura time period. Bricks of ice cream remain frozen solid throughout the defrost period. As a result of advanced manufacturing methods used in the new Hotpoint refrigerator plant, new 7.6 cubic foot models measure only 24 inches wide by 56 inches high, providing maximum storage space in a minimum floor area. This is believed to be the most compactly engineered 1954 modtl available from any manufacturer. Features of 7.6 cubic foot models" include pushbutton defrost, two and four door shelves, sliding all-aluminum shelves, full-width vegetable pan, full-width meat tray, a nine- position cold control and two ice trays.
