Shopping is not one of my métier and I do it when absolutely necessary. So, when my refrigerator broke down, I was out of sorts. I contacted the mechanic and after a thorough checkup, he declared that I needed a new one as the parts that created this disaster had become obsolete. Therefore, I checked out some reviews on lots of websites before I found the right one on Amazon.
Fortunately, the Great Indian Sale was going on, and I bought the Haier 256 L 3 Star Inverter Frost-Free Double Door Refrigerator at a considerable discount. It has Twin Inverter Technology that ensures that the fan motor and the compressor both run at DC and causes fewer fluctuations with a capacity of 256 litres. The glass inside is spill-proof toughened glass, and other facilities include a spacious vegetable box, semi-electronic control and twist ice maker. Additionally, it claims to have a low Global Warming Potential. I did not buy it on EMI as it would cost me more than the actual price.
When I finally received the refrigerator, I felt mollified as with the increase in temperature during the approaching summer, it would become impossible to live without the refrigerator. The foods would become spoilt, and the need for cool things and ice will be more.
Apart from buying a new refrigerator, the breezy shopping experience also made me blissful. Although I was worried about which company to check out and which model to buy, the process was shortened by a suggestion from my best friend. The product was delivered at short notice. Even I did not have to worry about the installation process as the professionals were very efficient. Even though it is not so hot outside, I enjoy the chilled smoothies and yummy ice cream I make at home.
