Hitachi’s Refreshing Technology

-1°C Chilled air maintains food freshness without freezing and indirect cooling prevents dehydration without troublesome wrapping.

Hyo-on Temperature

The region from 0°C to the temperature that starts to freeze food (the freezing point) is called the "Hyo-on Range". Utilising the range brings many benefits, such as fish which freezing point is -2°C. If fish is stored between 0°C to -2°C, its freshness can be maintained without freezing it.

Delicious Freezing Technology

Delicious Freezing Technology seals in the original textures, flavours and nutritional value of fresh and cooked products. This is achieved by freezing food very quickly past the maximum ice crystal formation zone on a big aluminium tray automatically.

* The image is illustrative purpose only. The capacity may differ from R-HV480NS.

Delicious Freezing

Seals in Flavours of
Meat and Fish

When the Temperature Sensor detects the temperature of hot food, it will automatically switch the setting and freeze it very quickly to past the maximum ice crystal formation zone. This minimises dripping by reducing ice crystal size, thus sealing in flavours of meat and fish.
