Jargon Busters: Fridges

Anti-bacterial coating: An antibacterial coating that helps prevent mould and mildew build-up, helping to keep food fresh for longer.

Bottom-mount: A model of fridges in which the freezer is located below the fridge compartment. Bottom-mounts have the ergonomic benefit of keeping the most commonly used items at eye-level.

Crisper: A section (usually a drawer) in the fridge compartment that is designed to provide a humid environment that is best for storing fresh fruit and vegetables. Some fridges have two crisper drawers so that fruit and vegetables can be stored separately.

Dairy compartment: A section in the fridge compartment that is designed to maintain the best temperature for storing dairy products such as cheese and butter.

Egg compartment: An egg-tray section, usually on the door of the fridge that is designed to securely store eggs at a suitable temperature.

Frost-free: Frost-free fridges prevent ice from building up, eliminating the occasional need to defrost. The lack of ice build-up also makes temperatures within the freezer more evenly spread, which improves food quality and the energy efficiency of the appliance.

LED display: Light emitting diode (LED) displays are like simplified computer screens that display information, in this case the fridge and freezer settings.

Multi-flow: A cooling system that circulates cold air more efficiently around the fridge, helping to prevent hotspots.

Side-by-side: A model of fridges in which the freezer is located beside the fridge compartment. Side-by-side models can come with narrow doors that are useful in areas of limited space. They generally also include the most features, but do tend to cost more.

Thermostat: A device that is used to determine and regulate temperatures in the fridge and freezer. The thermostat usually comes in the form of a dial, slide or digital controls.

Top-mount: A model of fridges in which the freezer is located above the fridge compartment. Top-mounts are generally the cheapest and most commonly available option, and have reasonably wide shelves.

Ventilation gap / Minimum air clearance: The minimum amount of empty space that must be left at the top, back, and sides of the fridge. This allows the hot air that is produced on the outside of the fridge to properly disperse.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
