For storage of fruits and vegetables is designed a drawer made of transparent plastic. It is roomy and easy to slide in and out.
Located above are 4 shelves of tempered glass with plastic trim. They can be rearranged by changing the distance between them in three variants: 16 cm, 18 cm and 22 cm.
Light spreads from top to bottom. The entire space of the chamber is evenly illuminated.
Most of the internal space of the door is taken by the dispenser container, but still fit two small trays, there is room to put eggs the tray holds 7 pieces and put bottles.

The freezer is very roomy: three containers can hide an ample supply of frozen food.
All containers can be quickly pulled out and retracted even if they are completely full. And all thanks to the wheels that help them ride and maintain stability.
If an accident happens and the power goes out, the food will keep the temperature below -9 degrees for a day. This will shorten the overall storage time slightly, but will not affect their taste or quality in any way.
On the door is a large display with the selected parameters of work.
Separate temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer compartments are set. Each has “+” and “-” buttons and a screen with readings.
Manually selectable in the freezer from -20°C to -16°C, in the refrigerator compartment from +2°C to +8°C.
When you press the Mode button, special modes are activated and the corresponding indication lights up on the display.
- Pressed once – supercooling mode starts, corresponding indication lights up. You can pack up and go shopping in the supermarket. When you put a lot of “warm” food in the refrigerator, it will cool down faster and the contents of the refrigerator will not heat up. Thanks to this care everything stays tasty and fresh for longer.
- Pressed once more – “snowflake” indicator lights up and supercooling mode is activated. The temperature in the freezer is automatically reduced and the display shows -32 °C. You can put vegetables, mushrooms and berries in the freezer in a couple of hours. They freeze as quickly as possible, preserving maximum vitamins and juiciness.

The test. Checking the dispenser
The container on the inside of the door of the refrigerator Ascoli is plastic. It can be removed to wash. Of course, it is designed for water, but if you really want, you can pour juice or morsels into it.
Claimed volume – 3 liters. If you fill it up to the top, you get more – 3.35 liters.
Put a glass on the regulator, press it and water runs out. But it is not necessary to release the regulator sharply and take away the glass at once, the last drops then will get on the door of the refrigerator or on the floor. Proceed carefully, then everything will stay clean.
Dispenser works properly. It is great that the container can be removed and washed. But it is necessary to be attentive when taking away the glass so that the last drops do not spill on the floor.
Test. We check the noise
The manufacturer claims 42 dB. The norm for refrigerators with No Frost system is considered 44 – 47 dB.
We check it with a noise meter:
- When activating the compressor in working mode the refrigerator works in the intelligent mode – 41 dB.
- When activating the compressor in the modes of supercooling and superfreezing – 47 to 50 dB.
