Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between 'net' and 'gross' capacity?
AYou see 2 capacities used for fridges and freezers - gross capacity refers to the total inside capacity of the appliance, while net capacity is the total *usable* capacity, after discounting the volume taken up by shelves, plastic moulding, etc.
QWhat is the average noise level of a fridge?
AThe average noise of a fridge is around 40Db, making it very quiet indeed, and hardly noticeable, even in a quiet kitchen.
QWhat is a 'No Frost' system?
AA 'No Frost' system reduces the humidity in the fridge, and automatically defrosts from time to time. This means there is little or no ice buildup inside the fridge.
QWhat is a 'Multi Airflow' system?
AThis is a system that ensures an even distribution cold air around all parts of the fridge. The air passes through an air filtration system before being recirculated, which removes unwanted odours to prevent odour contamination of other foods in fridge.

Fridge Buying Guide

Capacity

A dedicated refrigerator without freezer can often give you larger fridge storage capacity than even a substantial American style fridge freezer. The largest stand alone fridges have up to 400 litres of internal storage capacity. That's enough to store two supermarket trolleys full of food.

Another great advantage of a dedicated fridge is that they often have matching dedicated freezers. Placing the two side by side can create a combined fridge and freezer capacity big enough for even very large families. Just look out for fridges that have reversible doors which will let you create a fridge freezer combination with both doors opening our from the middle.

Moisture Control

Different types of food are best stored at different levels of humidity. Meat and fish are best stored in dry conditions, preserving the natural juices in the meat. Fruit and vegetables are better preserved in more humid conditions, with fruit best stored in semi humid conditions and vegetables best stored in fairly humid conditions.

Many fridges have moisture control compartments which allow you to vary the compartment's humidity level to suit the type of food that is stored inside. This will keep your food tasting fresher for longer.

Shelves

Budget and small refrigerators sometimes come with wire shelves. Whilst these are economical and can be useful for storing bottles and cans, they provide no drip protection if food from one shelf leaks and drips on to the shelf below. Premium fridges come with glass shelves which stop drips and are easy to clean.

Some fridges have folding shelves which fold away to allow you to store tall items like bottles. Others have pull out shelves which slide partially out of the fridge to make it easier to reach items at the back.

Other Features To Consider

Water Dispensers: Some fridges come with built in filtered water dispensers. Unlike American style fridge freezers, often fridge only water dispensers are simple in door reservoirs that you fill manually. This completely avoids the needs for a plumbed water connection.

The water reservoir normally contains a water filter which gives you access to cool filtered water without needing to open the fridge door. Look for models with a child lock on the water dispenser to prevent small hands playing and making a mess.

LED Lighting: Bright LED interior lights make it easy to see everything in your fridge. LED lights are also use very little energy and create very little heat, making them ideal for maintaining a constant temperature inside the fridge.

Great Design: Why not make your fridge the centerpiece of your kitchen with an icon fridge design? The fridge doesn't have to be the boring box in the corner and there are a number of unique fridge designs available, especially from Smeg.

Multi Airflow System: Some premium fridges use a multi airflow system to ensure an even distribution cold air around all parts of the fridge. These systems work by circulating air which often passes through an air filtration system before being recirculated. The air filter removes unwanted odours to prevent odour contamination of other foods in fridge.

Rapid Cooling: Rapid cooling is a feature that allows you to temporarily increase the cooling rate of the fridge so that it cools new items more quickly. This is ideal for those times when you bring home a big shop from the supermarket.

We found 432 current offers for refrigerators from eBay making it the biggest fridge retailer. That is much bigger than the second biggest retailer, Amazon UK for whom we found 283 current offers for refrigerators. The third biggest retailer is Currys with 160 current fridge offers.

When Are Most New Fridges Released?

Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any noticeable pattern in the release month for new refrigerators. March was the biggest month in 2017 for new fridges, with 83 new fridges released that month. 120 new refrigerators were released in October 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new fridge releases. The biggest month in 2015 for new refrigerator releases was July, with 66 new refrigerators released that month.

How Fast Do Refrigerator Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, fridges drop in price by 0% on average. That means a saving of £2 on a typical £461 new fridge if you wait 6 months before buying.

Case Designs

The case design shows whether the fridge is freestanding, or designed to be built into fixtures.

Freestanding is the most common case design amongst new fridges. We found 986 fridges that are freestanding fridges. Integrated is the second most frequently found case design amongst new refrigerators. We found 695 refrigerators that are integrated refrigerators.

Fridge Net Capacities

'Fridge Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of the fridge, measured in litres.

Comparing all refrigerators, the fridge net capacities range from 12L to 1,400L. The fridge net capacities of the majority of refrigerators range from 310L to 360L. The Bartscher 700455, which is on sale for £2,399.00, has the biggest fridge net capacity and is a 700L capacity refrigerator. The refrigerator with the smallest fridge net capacity is the Amica FM138.3, which is a 12L capacity fridge and is priced at £149.00.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the fridge at a time.

Heights

The heights of fridges range from 370mm to 2,150mm. The Siemens CI30RP01, which is on sale for £3,759.00, has the tallest height and is a 2,029mm high fridge. The fridge with the shortest height is the Klarstein Manhattan, which is a 370mm high refrigerator and sells for £109.99.

Widths

Across the range of refrigerators, the widths range from 260mm to 1,430mm. The Sharp SJSX830FBK, which is available at £1,969.97, has the widest width and is a 910mm wide fridge. The refrigerator with the narrowest width is the Swan Sre10010rn, which is a 350mm wide fridge and can be purchased for £84.99.

Energy Efficiency of Fridges

The Energy Efficiency Class of a fridge shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

The most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new fridges is A+. We found 816 fridges that have an energy efficiency rating of A+. We found 687 fridges that have an energy efficiency rating of A++, making this the second most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new fridges.

A fridge with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.

Which Are the Cheapest Retailers for Fridges?

The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying refrigerators. For each retailer it shows the total number of refrigerators where they currently have a market leading price. The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying refrigerators. For each retailer we took all of their prices and looked at what proportion of those prices where the cheapest on the market.

Proportion of Fridges for Which Each Retailer is Cheapest?

Assessing how cheap each retailer is for fridges by counting the number of cheapest prices for that retailer, makes the retailers that offer the greatest number of refrigerator prices more likely to offer the greatest number of cheapest prices. The chart below considers the proportion of each retailer's refrigerator prices that are the cheapest compared to other retailers. The cheapest retailer that we found using this approach was eBay. 73.1% of their fridge prices were the cheapest that could be found anywhere.
