I have been a proud owner of a Whirlpool Vitamagic PRO since 2022. I have used it for almost 3.5 years. But not using this anymore. Well, Here is my honest and unbiased review of the Whirlpool Vitamagic semi-smart refrigerator.
Today I am going to share my personal review about Whirlpool Vitamagic Pro with Pedestal. So if you’re in need of buying a new fridge for your home then this blog post can help you out.
Update Sep 2023: It’s not working now after a few repairs. It is just a space taking dump at my home. It worked great but not long. I suggest you not to go for this semi-smart refrigerator. Just go for the manual defront or automatic refrigerator.
Let’s review the product…
Whirlpool Vitamagic PRO Review
A good refrigerator is worth its weight in gold. You can do without a kitchen mixer, washing machine, or microwave for two weeks, but try doing the same without a refrigerator. In two days you would want immediate delivery of a new machine. Whirlpool Direct Cool Vitamagic Pro ROY 3S is a 200 liters 3 Star Single Door Refrigerator. It also comes with Base Stand/Pedestal with Drawer to give you some extra space.

Why did I decide to buy Whirlpool Vitamagic Pro?
The main reason I decided on the Whirlpool 215 Vitamagic was that it suited my budget of INR 15,000. It was also the exact size that I needed. I had no use for a 250-liter frost-free.
A large part of the refrigerator buying decision depends on the purchase of perishables and the cooking pattern of a family.
I visit the market every five days, and I never cook and store for over 48 hours. Those who visit the market once in ten days, or like to prepare and save for 100 hours would need something more substantial.
I also wanted a direct cool refrigerator. The reason is that they are vastly more energy-efficient, easier to maintain, have less expensive spare parts, and do not break down very easily. In fact, there is only one part that can break down – the expansion coil may have a leak. Virtually anything else will run smoothly for a decade if you use a stabilizer.
There is a myth that direct cool refrigerators are hard to clean. That was the case 20 years ago. Modern direct cool machines empty out melted water into a tray and evaporate it using the same technology as frost-free.
Hence as long as you switch the refrigerator off for two hours every 2 days, you have for all intents and purposes a frost-free device.
The Whirlpool 215 Vitamagic was less expensive than its counterparts from Samsung and LG, and I had a good experience with their customer care before. Also, it is one of the most well-known white goods manufacturers in the world.
Last but not least, the color. The refrigerator has a steel-like finish, while Korean brands only offer vivid flower decals, which do not suit my taste.

Top Features of Whirlpool Vitamagic Pro?
- The refrigerator has a gross volume of 200 liters and a net storage of 182 liters.
- It consumes very little power – only 205 watts per year. This is not just a claim. My power bills are low.
- It stands tall and has a drawer at the bottom where you can store what does not need to be refrigerated like onions and potatoes.
- The most significant feature is the 6th Sense Intellicool. You do not need to shut it off manually once every 2 days. It does so itself!
This feature means it is the same as a frost-free. Instead of defrosting once every 3 hours, it does so once every day. That means a longer life. – This was a huge mistake.
Performance of the Whirlpool Vitamagic
There is a 12-hour cooling retention. If you shut it off, then even in the peak of Indian summer, you will find the interior is quite cold even after 8 hours.
Two features stand out apart from minimal power usage:
- The fast cool technology can make ice cubes in an hour or less.
- It is a really very able refrigerator in every possible way.
Should you buy a Whirlpool Vitamagic Pro 3-Star Fridge?
As a user, I would absolutely recommend that you buy the Whirlpool 215 Vitamagic. It is affordable, sturdy, and functions well.
There is ample storage space, and the shelves are made of toughened glass and can hold heavy utensils with no problem at all.
The build quality is reliable, and it is an excellent device.

I was looking for a semi-smart refrigerator and then I came across the Whirlpool Vitamagic Pro Roy 3S. I was attracted to its cool design & features. The fridge provides you lots of features including Intelligent Defrost which is the most useful feature for anyone. (Because we don’t want to remember to defrost the fridge every week.)
If you are looking for a small refrigerator that is inexpensive and works well, then go ahead and buy it. There are umpteen deals offered throughout the year, and you can get it at a really low price as I did.
I wholeheartedly recommend this refrigerator. But, think twice now.
