Our phones sure are smart, so why can’t our fridges be brainy, too? Although we’ve yet to see Siri make her way to the kitchen (we’d probably all benefit from a reminder that we’re out of milk or that we shouldn’t touch that piece of cake), she might arrive sooner than you’d think. The latest model in the ActiveSmart refrigerator line from Fisher & Paykel, newly available, uses smart technology to monitor how you and your family use it, adjusting airflow to keep food fresh longer. With new LED bulbs replacing halogen, the fridge needs 88 percent less power for lighting than before. A faster ice machine, quicker water delivery system, and more storage capacity are sweet additions that make this the crème de la crème of refrigerators.
