Inspired by Japanese cuisine

The Panasonic Refrigerator

For the Japanese, the seasons holds deep meaning, and each has special ingredients that are celebrated in Washoku, or Japanese cuisine. One of the world’s great cuisines, Washoku was recognized by UNESCO in 2013 as intangible cultural heritage.

Reflecting a refined sensibility unique to Japan, Washoku is all about freshness: in-season ingredients from the mountains, forests, fields, and seas are treasured for their unadorned flavor. The creative use of fresh ingredients gives Washoku its power to please all five senses with a single meal and achieve outstanding nutritional balance.

Panasonic’s freshness technologies are inspired by this traditional passion for freshness and flavor. They are designed to keep all kinds of ingredients fresh and delicious: vegetables, meats, seafood, and more. And Panasonic refrigerators are designed to keep all foods easy to organize and access for cooking at the perfect moment.

Inspired by Japan’s insistence on freshness

-3˚C Prime Fresh freezing

Washoku is famous for its use of raw ingredients, with Sushi and Sashimi being two renowned examples. To satisfy the insistence of discerning Japanese customers on the freshest ingredients possible, Panasonic created the Prime Fresh freezing compartment.

The secret is Panasonic’s unique sensing and temperature control technologies. The Prime Fresh freezing compartment senses when you put in ingredients and keeps them at a steady -3˚C, partially freezing them. Helping prevent food oxidation, this compartment can keep perishable foods extra-fresh for up to a week. Partial freezing also minimizes damage to the cells of ingredients, helping preserve their original texture and nutrition. In addition, meat, poultry, and fish slice easily and neatly, making meal preparation easier than ever.

Inspired by Japan’s care for the customer

Fully Extending Drawer

When you can’t see what’s in your refrigerator, it’s easy to forget to use valuable food or to buy the same food twice. To help solve this issue while making food easier than ever to view and reach, Panasonic came up with a new innovation: the Fully extending drawer, which extends all the way outside the refrigerator. It’s truly a case of a little thing meaning a lot.

And it’s a little thing that required some fairly advanced Japanese technology: rails with special high-load bearings. Go ahead, fill the drawers up – the rails are specially designed to distribute the weight evenly and securely. With one hand, you can easily slide a fully loaded drawer in and out, as smooth as can be. And of course, these drawers are highly durable.

Caring about customers and their experience with the product. This hallmark of Japanese culture is built into your Panasonic refrigerator, helping make it a convenient joy to use every day.

The Beauty and Presence of a Fine Piece of Furniture

The Beauty and Presence of a Fine Piece of Furniture

Panasonic believes that a refrigerator should possess all the beauty and presence of a high-end piece of furniture. This full-flat, frameless design entices the eye with glass reminiscent of lustrous obsidian, harmonizing with any space. Drawing inspiration from such ancient Japanese glass cutting techniques as Edo Kiriko and Satsuma Kiriko, Panasonic gave the glass panels of the refrigerator elegant beveled edges. But the attention to detail does not stop there. With the LEDs and the back wall, the Prime Fresh freezing compartment has a soft yet powerful glow inside to beautifully set off food ingredients.
The final result is a work of art that enhances any kitchen and provides a truly enjoyable experience every time you opens its doors.
