Mitsubishi Electric offers a clear choice with its new MR-508U and MR-560U refrigerators


Mitsubishi Electric has today announced its latest models of home refrigerators, the large capacity 508 litre MR-508U and 560 litre MR-560U that come with the latest advances in anti-bacteria technology and a range of new space saving storage options for Australian families.

The MR-508U and MR-560U models feature an elevating shelf that can be raised or lowered by up to 40 millimetres using a sliding lever. This is particularly useful for those hard to store bottles that need to remain vertical. The best part is you can slide the shelf while the items are still on it.

To create more space, the new models also come with a flexible glass shelf that can be folded back in half, or extended to provide two full glass tiers. All the refrigerator’s tempered glass shelves are built to support up to 101 kilograms of weight.

Tony Hirst, Director, Mitsubishi Electric Living Environment Group said, “Our customers have asked us to reintroduce a large family size refrigerator, our response was designing a range that offered over 500 litres of storage capacity”. 

The MR-508U and MR-560U’s unique anti-bacteria food liner offers anti-bacteria protection. This has been achieved by using inorganic anti-bacteria material that is non toxic and conforms to the highest Japanese food sanitation laws. Bacterial growth is also inhibited by the refrigerators’ cooling system that uses Negative Ion technology to surround the food items and preserve the nutrients and freshness of the food.

Another feature that makes the MR508U and MR560U fridges stand out are their crystal clear ice function. Normally water has air bubbles that make ice cubes look clear on the top but translucent underneath. Mitsubishi Electric’s revolving ice tray system makes the ice clear throughout.
A unique design feature is the slim handle design. The handle runs along the entire length of the fridge door meaning you can easily open it from any height.

Both models come with the Mitsubishi Electric five year parts, labour and compressor warranty.

Other features of the new models include:

  • An adjustable door shelf
  • Surround Cooling System and big tower light
  • Large bottle pockets
  • The option of a white or stainless steel finish
