Summit Appliance Introduces the Ingenious Collection of Counter Depth Refrigeration

Bronx, NY, July 10, 2013— Space-challenged kitchens can get an upgrade with Summit Appliance’s new Ingenious line of refrigeration, full-size household units with unique features for the user. Available in two sizes, these frost-free refrigerator-freezers put innovative design in hard-to-find footprints

"The Ingenious Collection has a dramatic look, yet the units themselves are incredibly practical," says Paul Storch, President of Felix Storch, Inc. "The curved doors and platinum color are quite stylish, while the actual product features are designed for true user convenience."

Those features include a digital control panel on the door's exterior that lets users set an open door alarm, reduce the energy consumption for short holidays, and set the Power Cool function to rapidly chill the interior (ideal for bringing room temperature items like groceries to a colder temperature). The freezer compartment includes the Smart Fill Ice Factory, a no-spill system for making ice cubes, and the Express Chill Zone, a rapid cooling compartment that can be programmed on a timer-based system. Additional features include glass shelves, door storage, interior lighting, and multiple crisper storage drawers.

"When you’re looking for a counter deep refrigerator, your options are generally limited to wider units that take up too much space or built-in models that come with a very high price tag," Storch says. "Because of their height, the Ingenious models manage to maintain full-size storage capacity in slimmer widths than what you generally find when looking for counter deep units. They also come at a much lower price than the built-in models on the market."

The units available are the 18 cu.ft. FF1935PL (73” H x 29.25” W x 27” D) and 14 cu.ft. FF1525PL (73" H x 26" W x 26.25" D). To learn more about these units and see the Ingenious features in action, visit or call Summit at 1-800-932-4267.
