DLite+ / Food Storage System


Due to our hectic lifestyles, we often come home to meals that have turned cold. With the DLite+ Food Storage System, this problem can be solved without extra electrical consumption such as using the microwave oven. We observed that the refrigerator generates a lot of waste heat during the cooling cycle. Hence, in DLite+, the heat exchange coils are re-arranged such that the waste heat can be used to keep cooked food warm. Food prepared earlier can be placed inside the environmentally-friendly DLite+ by your family members so that when you reach home, the food would still be piping hot for your enjoyment.
