Chasnyn Ousmand, Product Marketing Manager, Whitegoods, Panasonic, said: “Today, the fridge is the heart of the kitchen. Modern, open plan design, plus a focus on healthy living, means your appliances have to look good and store good food for you. Our elegant new Refrigerators have a flat, seamless design, and at a convenient 547 litres, offer consumers a capacious fridge that can still fit into their standard kitchen space.”

Ms Ousmand added: “Keeping food fresh and making it last longer is important for both taste and reducing waste. Our ‘Prime Fresh’ technology lightly freezes food, extending life and keeping flavour and making it easy to prepare; while ‘Fresh Safe’ keeps fruit and veggies juicy and delicious and stops them spoiling prematurely.”

Panasonic Refrigerators include smart technologies to keep food fresher for longer

Panasonic’s convertible ‘Chilled Case’ can be set to -3˚C for ‘Prime Fresh’, or 0˚C to chill items. Panasonic’s latest ‘Prime Fresh’ refrigeration technology softly freezes fresh meat and seafood to approximately -3˚C. Since food is only lightly frozen, it extends the life of perishable food, whilst maintaining nutrients, flavour and texture. Odours are also minimised, ideal for storing seafood and other strong smelling food. ‘Prime Fresh’ offers food preparation convenience as it’s easy to slice and cook it immediately.

For fresh, juicy vegetables, the range’s easy-access, centralised ‘Fresh Safe’ vegetable case ensures produce is stored in optimum conditions thanks to an airtight design. This keeps humidity levels high, up to 90 per cent, and prevents produce from drying out.


In addition, surround cooling evenly distributes chilled air from the rear panel throughout the refrigerator for gentle cooling without dehydrating food and to maintain a constant temperature. The powerful Ag antibacterial and deodorising filter cleans circulated air, minimising mould and bacteria that could cause food to spoil more quickly, and eliminating unpleasant odours.

Modern, functional design to complement any kitchen

The stunning French Door design features a full-flat glass panel, free from frames, bumps or depressions, to create a seamless finish. The stylish recessed curved handles match the flat design.

The slim-line doors are perfect when kitchen space is tight, and as they can be opened individually, they also prevent unnecessary cold air escaping which contributes to energy savings.

The Electrostatic Touch Control Panel has a striking mirror finish and also gives consumers complete control over settings and temperature levels.

Panasonic’s popular full-extension bottom freezer drawer sits low, making it incredibly easy to put in and take out food, and see items in the freezer. All new refrigerator models benefit from having separate cases in the freezer which offer tidy storage, as well as minimising food odours. In addition, 100kg tempered glass shelves inside the refrigerator can hold heavier items such as casseroles.

ECONAVI technology for effortless energy savings

Panasonic’s clever ECONAVI technology has been designed to automatically and intuitively save consumers energy, whilst delivering an advanced cooling performance via the Inverter motor.

Exclusive to Panasonic, ECONAVI technology uses four intelligent sensors to monitor usage patterns, and energy output is then adapted accordingly. This revolutionary technology allows your refrigerator to monitor the level of lighting and temperature in the room, when and how often the refrigerator doors are opened, and the refrigerator’s internal temperature. It then analyses and responds to this information to maintain cooling and the most efficient operation of your refrigerator.

Panasonic’s new NR-CY54B 547 Litre French Door Refrigerators are priced at $2499rrp and are available in late August from selected retailers. For more information, please visit or call 132 600.
