NDTV Kitchen Appliance review is an accolade conducted by an expert panel of kitchen appliance analysts.
NDTV’s competitive analysis focused on budget friendly models that are equipped with features but come at an affordable price. They have curated a roundup of the best single-door refrigerators in India under 200L capacity. There were other 10 participating nominees from the other brands in the industry. The analysis was independent and based on a thorough research of the budget fridge market.
Haier evidently emerged as the winner as the best single-door budget refrigerator after an in-depth analysis by the reviewers. The key features like energy efficiency (205 kWh) and 5 star BEE rating with great features (Cool pack, cooling retention up to 10 hours), open door alarm, a whopping 10 year warranty (on compressor) and other basic features enabled Haier to bag the spotlight. All these features are available at the market price of Rs. 14, 300/-.
