The veil of secrecy surrounding Liebherr’s new BluPerformance models was recently lifted at the IFA in Berlin – the world’s leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances. BluPerformance is a completely new generation of freestanding appliances, which offer increased net capacity, greater energy efficiency, enhanced performance, quieter operation, first-class design, and more everyday convenience. Read on to discover even more about the advantages of our exciting BluPerformance range.
One thing is clear: BluPerformance will revolutionise the refrigerator and freezer market! And this innovative appliance generation, with its many new and improved features, cannot fail to impress and inspire you! But, first things first…
All BluPerformance appliances are extremely energy efficient, class A+++ or A+++/-20%; the A+++/-20% models actually surpass the threshold for the top energy efficiency class, A+++, by another 20%! BluPerformance also represents a new dimension in terms of food freshness and quality. Featuring premium-quality materials, perfect workmanship down to the finest details, superior convenience, and precise touch-electronic controls, this range of innovative appliances does not compromise in any way. All refrigeration technology is compactly integrated into the base of the appliance, thereby freeing-up far more space for food storage. This plinth-housed refrigeration technology, together with specially mounted compressors, help to make BluPerformance models particularly quiet during operation. An optionally available SmartDeviceBox enables the appliances to be easily integrated into smart homes via WLAN. In this way, BluPerformance refrigerators and freezers can be conveniently controlled from mobile devices – for greater security, service and convenience – even whilst you’re out and about.
The BluPerformance BioFresh appliance generation comes with significantly larger BioFresh drawers. In Premium BioFresh appliances, all safes can be flexibly set as either a HydroSafe (with a higher humidity level) or a DrySafe (with a lower humidity level) via the humidity control panel. The illuminated BioFresh drawers are fully extendable, effortlessly opened and closed (even when fully stocked), and completely removable as required. Premium appliance BioFresh drawers in are fitted with a self-retracting and soft closing mechanism. Integrated LED lighting, positioned in the BioFresh partition plate, provides perfect illumination of the drawers.
When designing appliances, we follow the classic principle: ‘design follows function’. The aim is to make our concealed, highly efficient refrigeration technology discernible through the external, overall design. Our timeless HardLine design, with clear and minimalist lines, ensures that these appliances are a visual masterpiece in any kitchen or living environment. The new, integrated door hinging underscores the sharp, premium-quality appearance; meanwhile, the ergonomically shaped lever handle corresponds to the design language of the new HardLine doors. Convenient and easy door opening is ensured by the opening mechanism that is integrated into the handle.
The interior offers a VarioSafe – the perfect storage solution for smaller food items, packets, tubes and jars – and premium quality GlassLine fittings, which facilitate a clear, organised overview of stored food. LED ceiling lighting provides homogenous illumination throughout the entire interior. In Premium BioFresh models, the BioFresh partition plate features integrated LED rear wall lighting, which provides perfect interior illumination and wonderful presentation for food. The freezer compartment drawers are optimally illuminated from above via LED lighting housed under of the refrigerator compartment door. With the refrigeration technology integrated into the appliance plinth, there is no requirement for a condenser at the back of the appliance. Transport handles are integrated at the top of the appliance (rear side) to make moving and repositioning easier.
The new, Premium fridge-freezers come with a high-resolution, 7-inch touchscreen display integrated into the door. They offer maximum daily convenience with a large range of pre-defined programs and incredible ease-of-use. Information, energy saving tips and food storage recommendations can be readily accessed. According to requirements, up to six appliance functions can be simultaneously set up and displayed on the home screen for immediate Access.
Additional functions can also be activated to reduce energy consumption. For example: the EnergySaver program slightly increases the preset temperature; and the Holiday program raises the refrigerator compartment temperature to 15°C during prolonged absences, without affecting the freezer compartment temperature.
Liebherr’s SmartDeviceBox is an intelligent and convenient solution for networking appliances and provides access to three handy services: SmartHomePlus, SafetyPlus and ServicePlus. Liebherr uses these to offer more security, service and convenience. Available as an accessory, the SmartDeviceBox enables smart-device-compatible refrigerators to be simply and reliably controlled from mobile devices. The SmartDeviceBox can be used to obtain status and alarm messages from the refrigerator and to configure appliance settings. A special Liebherr BluPerformance feature: not only can individual appliances be networked; the entire BluPerformance range of 66 models can be equipped with the SmartDeviceBox.

On all BluPerformance fridge-freezers and refrigerators, a FreshAir activated charcoal filter is integrated into the PowerCooling fan’s housing. This cleans the circulating air and quickly traps contaminating odours to ensure optimum air quality. The electronic control panel features a convenient reminder function, which indicates when the filter needs changing.
There’s every reason to be excited about Liebherr’s new BluPerformance refrigerators and freezers – they are absolutely head turning amazing!
