Asko Refrigerators Brand Guide

Asko Refrigerators Review & Guide

With so many refrigeration options available, navigating your way through the appliance aisle can get overwhelming. But Asko’s small range of Pro Series fridges could make your choice a little simpler – if you have several thousand dollars to spare!

From removable shelves to separate temperature zones for red and white wine, each Pro Series integrated and outdoor refrigerator is designed to provide a variety of flexible features claimed to help you adapt your appliance to the way you want it. Other products available from Asko include washing machines, tumble dryers, ovens, cooktops and dishwashers.

To ensure that the contents of your fridge isn’t excessively or under chilled, every Asko model includes a dual refrigeration system. This is said to provide each refrigerator and freezer area with its own separate closed system, which contains a different evaporator and compressor in each compartment. Asko claims this allows for better preservation as fresh food is apparently better kept in a ‘humid yet chilly environment’, while frozen foods need a ‘dry and frigid air’ to prevent decay and freezer burn.

Accessories such as stainless doors are also typically available for $999. Here is a guide to some specific Asko fridges.
