Marvel Reveals New Products

Selection taken from Blog Post: Marvel Refrigeration upgrades its professional collection by Leah Kalemba
Published by Marvel, January 6, 2017

At this year’s KBIS in Orlando, Florida and IDS in Toronto, Canada, Marvel revealed new and innovative features to their undercounter refrigeration line.

All Marvel Professional models are now designed with midnight black interiors and tri-color LED lighting in three color options: sapphire blue, amber glow and arctic white. Integrated controls allow the user to select from full or half interior illumination for a two-stage theater style presentation.

The smooth ball-bearing shelving system glides out to full extension for convenient access to the back of the shelf, without toppling items. Additionally, certain models in the collection now feature 3-in-1 Split Convertible Shelving for hybrid food, beverage or wine storage. Removing one or both glass panes reveals a wine rack capable of partial or full-width storage that holds 7 bottles. And the new Marvel Professional Refrigerated Drawers come with quick-grip dividers that conveniently adjust to organize and secure contents.

In addition to these features, Marvel introduced the first-ever glass door clear ice machine. The 15″ Marvel Clear Ice Machine with Arctic Illuminice™ Lighting glass door model makes batch after batch of pure and clear ice that chills faster and melts slower, and allows the dramatic lighting affect to be seen even when the door is closed.

More About Moscato Wine

Moscato d’Asti is expanding in popularity among wine enthusiasts for its lighter, sweeter flavor profile and lower alcohol content (5 to 8% abv). Known for its blend of sweet peach, orange blossom and nectarine flavors, Pink Moscato is typically created from Muscat Blanc grapes, possibly one of the oldest cultivated varieties in the world.

It dazzles wine enthusiasts with its aromatic fragrance, light fruit-forward palate, and spritzy character as a frizzante. Wine expert Stacy Slinkard describes its appeal as such. “Moscato’s inherent aromatics are simply stunning – orange blossom, honeysuckle, almonds, ginger and ultra expressive fruit dominated by green grapes, citrus tones and ripe peach nuances. From pear and apple, to orange and lime with consistent appearances in the ripe, juicy peach and apricot category, Moscato’s flavors are extraordinarily fruit-filled. The delicate cascade of bubbles, light body and sweet surprise culminate to woo and win many unsuspecting palates to the wide world of wine.”

5 Buying Tips From Marvel

Blog Post: Buying Guide: Undercounter Refrigerator Appliances by Leah Kalemba
Published by Marvel, September 13, 2016

marvel-tips-0Undercounter refrigeration is not merely a box to keep things cold nor is it a commodity item decided on a simple matter of price. Today’s options provide varying degrees of cooling performance, storage configurations, styles and finishes. And, undercounter options have expanded to beverage centers, wine cellars, freezers, ice machines and beer dispensers to offer even more diverse preservation capabilities for your home. Below are 5 tips to consider before purchasing.

  1. TEMPERATURE STABILITY
    BUYER TIP: Choose an undercounter refrigerator with forced air circulation, like Dynamic Cooling Technology from Marvel.

marvel-tips-1We all know the measure of a good refrigerator is how well it cools, but are you aware that several undercounter brands’ cabinet temperature can fluctuate by as much as 10 to 15 degrees?

There is a distinct difference in cooling technologies across the industry.  Low-grade static cold plate cooling creates disparities in air distribution, creating an uneven temperature stratification effect.  In other words, the top compartment might be 15 degrees warmer than the bottom and other areas might cause items to frost.  Dynamic forced air actively recirculates cold air throughout the cabinet from top to bottom and is an upgrade worth investing in, especially if you plan to store wine and delicate foods.


  1. COOLDOWN TIME
    BUYER TIP: Select a model with a proven cooldown rate.  For example, Marvel’s rapid cooldown is tested to be up to three times faster than other models

marvel-tips2Surprisingly, few homeowners consider this aspect when shopping for an undercounter refrigerator and it’s an attribute that can impact your lifestyle the most. Rapid cooldown is a necessary convenience for today’s fast-paced lifestyles, and particularly important when stocking your undercounter refrigerator full of room-temperature cases of beverages for a party later than night. Nothing takes the refreshing zest out of a carbonated beverage like serving it lukewarm.


  1. ENERGY-SAVING FEATURES, EFFICIENCY AND OPERATING COSTS
    BUYER TIP: Be sure to read the product’s Energy Guide for projected annual energy costs, and look for the ENERGY STAR® mark.

marvel-tips-3In 2014, The Department of Energy enforced more stringent energy regulations on the appliance industry. Michigan-based manufacturer AGA Marvel welcomed the changing regulations as an opportunity to retool its entire undercounter line, and now offers the largest collection of ENERGY STAR® rated undercounter appliances.  In fact, many of its models exceed the EPA ENERGY STAR® requirements – in some cases by 30%!

Look for additional energy-saving options, such as integrated controls with Eco mode, Vacation mode and Delay Start. And, there are features that prevent energy loss, too, like Close Door Assist to automatically bring the door to a gentle close and alarms to alert you of energy-compromising issues.

Another measure of thermal efficiency is the model’s cabinet and door insulation, as it’s the most effective protection from external heat transfer and cold air loss and affects overall efficiency.


  1. CAPACITY AND STORAGE FLEXIBILITY

    BUYER TIP: Insist on versatile storage solutions like cantilevered shelving and convertible shelving that can adapt to fit your lifestyle as it changes.

marvel-tips4Review storage options and interior capacity of models at the footprint size you need.  Ask yourself, will this model suit my storage needs now and in the future? Can it fit extra-large platters and pizza boxes? Can it accommodate tall items? Does it offer optional wine storage?  Is there a clear rollout bin to store loose items or produce? Pick a model able to store the items you use most often.


  1. FIT AND FINISH
    BUYER TIP: Explore finish options with timeless appeal, and consider the fully integrated look of overlay panels.

marvel-tips5Manufacturers offer undercounter models in a variety of aesthetics, including solid and glass-framed doors in stainless steel, black, custom panel-ready and other finishes. If you prefer a truly built-in look, you’ll want a panel-ready model with a soft-close integrated hinge to seamlessly blend with your cabinetry.

The Refrigeration Experience

Excerpt from: A Chill Is In The Air By Stacey Ballis
Published by Polymath Chronicles (Blog), April 12, 2016

Big fridgeSo I figured the best way to handle the kitchen reno reveals, is to just remind you of the previous posts and then update you on how the choices are working out so far!

So today, we can revisit refrigeration! Remember the fridge post?  Well all three of the Marvel fridges are installed and loaded and ready for a full report.  And the report?  Is awesome!

First, the big boy…

We decided to inset the fridge between the food pantry and the kitchen library, so that it would not stick out into the room, much as you might do if you were installing it within your cabinetry.  We trimmed out the space with woodwork that matches the original woodwork from the house, so that it would integrate well.  And we chose the glass door on the fridge so that it would break up the look, and not create a wall of stainless steel.

Open fridgeHere is the fridge side, opened.  And yes, that awesome blue light is standard, and I just love it!  Ditto the stainless steel interior, which is both easy to clean and looks terrific.  You’ll notice that there are four deep drawers at the bottom, we have designated one of these for vegetables, one for deli meats and other easy lunch items, one for raw meats, and one for fruit.  The rest of the space is just open shelving, so I invested heavily in plastic trays and bins and organizers so that we could corral the rest of our stuff.

We bought this fridge because it is very deep, so it holds a great deal, and is amazing for large entertaining platters and such, but it does require some forethought on the organization side, especially when you have a small condiment hoarding problem as we do.  I have a tray for Asian ingredients, one for other condiments, one for salad dressings, one for pickles, one for jams and jellies.  We’ve got the whole top shelf for beverages, the second one down for dairy, and we keep the bottom shelf fairly open for leftovers or other prepped items.  I have to say, it has been a really amazing shift from our old small fridge to this one…everything has a place, and I don’t have to completely pull everything out of a shelf to add or remove an item.  Glorious! For more details on Marvel products, click here.
