Some interesting Kimchi Refrigerator articles I've found on the Net:
The recently introduced kimchi fridge is a separate appliance from the general-purpose fridge. The kimchi fridge circulates the air and colder temperatures unlike the general-purpose counterpart. For 2008, Kimchi refrigerators exceeded sales of the traditional refrigerators for the first time. According to Yoon, “60 percent of 15 million Korean households will own kimchi refrigerators in the next five years”.
For Mando Climate Control, this year's sales of Kimchi fridges will reach 1 trillion won ($766 million).
So what’s the fuss all about and what does this refrigerator do that the industry standard does not? Why not just store the stuff in a small countertop refrigerator like those used in college dorms? Does the kimchi really need to be stored and matured separately from the regular stuff in the standard refrigerator?
For centuries, Koreans have used earthenware jars (Kimchi Pots) and yes, the standard refrigerator for keeping their kimchi fresh and maturing. Storing the kimchi in a smaller countertop fridge only separates it from the refrigerated items in the standard fridge. Such models are not cold enough and don’t apply the cooler temperatures as does the kimchi fridge.
LG Kimchi Flower Cube Design
The kimchi fridge is specifically designed to meet storage requirements of varied kimchi types, including temperature control and different fermentation processes. Unlike its kitchen counterpart, the kimchi refrigerator directly cools the aluminum interior. The kimchi fridge has several times more aluminum alloyed with manganese and tin. These features keep the kimchi fresher, crisper, and for longer periods.
Another effect not achieved with a standard refrigerator is, according to Yoon, the generation of 63 million lactobacilli creating the tastiest and freshest kimchi. The aluminum interior also keeps kimchi fresh and ready to eat up to four months.
