The Connoisseur Collection features the non-plumbed Automatic Ice Maker. As there is no separate plumbing connection required, this cost effective approach to ice making means the fridge can be placed anywhere in the kitchen, not just near existing pipe work. Simply fill the removable water tank and the Ice Maker is ready to go!
The water tank, located at the bottom of the Refrigeration Compartment, saves significantly more space in comparison to side-by-side refrigerators, which typically have ice makers integrated in the door design and compromise on available depth. The water tank is easily removed, cleaned and refilled at the kitchen sink without the hassle and additional cost of plumbing the refrigerator into the water supply. This allows bottled mineral water to be used also.
The water supply system is easy to clean; removable water tank components just need to be flushed periodically with water to maintain optimum performance. Rubber components are treated with an anti-bacterial coating.
The Four Drawer WX and EX Series feature a separate ice drawer to ensure ice cubes remain odour free. This design also prevents the absorption of lingering food odours that may be present.
The Two Drawer LX Series and C405/375 refrigerators feature an ice collection tray in the freezer drawer which provides easy access to refreshing ice.
Most automatic ice makers require filters to be replaced every 3-6 months and can be a costly exercise. In the Connoisseur Collection, however, water in the refrigerator tank is purified through a lead cleaning filter which removes impurities, bacteria and chlorine to ensure fresh, clean, tasty ice for up to 10 years without needing to replace the filter.
