Vacuum-sealed for
Freshness

Platinum Catalyst with Ruthenium Vacuum Compartment

The secret to longer-lasting freshness is reduced oxygen levels. Hitachi’s original preservation extracts air to maintain approx. 0.8 atm of vacuum preservation. With unique Platinum Catalyst, chilled meat, fish and dairy products are kept fresh and nutritious, and ready to cook.

Quick Seasoning

Quick seasoning is made possible because the Vacuum Compartment removes air from stored food, enabling seasoning to be absorbed at a faster rate.*3 So, with less time required for seasoning and cooking, there’s more time for eating!

Refreshing Technology Maintains 0.8 atm Vacuum*

Hitachi innovation at its finest and most consistent : the sealed pressure-resistant vacuum realises and maintains the vacuumed environment. A vacuum pump extracts air and reduces oxygen to achieve approx. 0.8 atm (atmospheric pressure) throughout usage.

* Vacuum means the space where the pressure is lower than the atmospheric pressure. The pressure in the Vacuum Compartment is about 0.8 atm, which is lower than the atmospheric pressure, hence, Hitachi considers this a vacuum.

A Tale of 2 Temperature Zones

Now, you can truly chill. Store your food without freezing by selecting a suitable temperature for the stored items, and help prevent deterioration of flavours and texture.

Approx. 2°C Cooling
Keeps Food Fresh

Sensor Cooling

The lower 2 shelves are kept at approx. 2°C. This is lower than the regular refrigerator temperature, so your items stored here retain their freshness. The sensor detects temperature changes and adjusts the cooling power to maintain the 2°C temperature in the right lower compartment.*

* Tested by Hitachi. The effect may differ depending on conditions and amount of food stored.

Approx. 2°C Moisture
Air Keeps Food Fresh

Moisture Cooling

Optimum-moisture chilled air and lower temperature of approx. 2°C retains flavours and freshness.*1

* Tested by Hitachi. The effect may differ depending on conditions and amount of food stored.

Moisture Cooling

Suppresses Dehydration & Discolouration

Storing at low temperature retains the freshness, and suppresses mould growth of cooked or pre-cooked items.*2

Breakthrough Energy
Saving Technology

VIP - Vacuum Insulation Panel

VIP is a thin vacuum-insulated panel with extremely high heat insulation performance. It achieves super energy saving compared to conventional urethane, by preventing external heat entry or internal cold air escape.

New Cooling System
with 2 Evaporators

New Cooling Structure

The new cooling system has two evaporators and fans, with one set dedicated to cooling the refrigerator compartment only, and the other for the freezer and vegetable compartments.
