The Kelvinator KW163PT-HR is a single door refrigerator. It belongs to the Smart Chill series from Kelvinator. The Gulmohar Red color decorated with the flowers design on the door gives it a sleek, attractive look. The flower design spans the entire height of the refrigerator door on the right side. The door opens to the right side and the handle is integrated into the door at the top side. The handle is molded in a darker shade of red and carries the Kelvinator branding in white letters.
The refrigerator can be locked using the built-in lock. It is quite compact and can fit into the smallest of spaces. It stands on four rubber feet which give it stability and grounding. On the inside, the rack, the bottle racks, and the trays are made of strong plastic and the trays are made of toughened glass. The refrigerator features 2 shelves, 2 bottle racks, and 2 trays.
The Kelvinator KW163PT-HR carries a 3 Star BEE Rating (2016) and is energy efficient. It features Natural Convection Air Flow system as well as express cooling. The thick PUF insulation and the anti-bacterial gasket ensure a tight seal thereby increasing the cooling and energy efficiency. At 150L the energy consumption of this workhorse is quite less.
The only thing missing is the door-open alarm. It should have been included here as an open refrigerator door only wastes energy and increases electricity consumption. The rest of the features work as advertised.
The Kelvinator KW163PT-HR with a capacity of 150Ltr will serve the needs of a small family quite easily. The compact size and the attractive looks will make it a useful addition to any kitchen. The included features and utilities at this price point make it a good value for money proposition.
