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.

Siemens is the top rated refrigerator brand with an average rating of 95%. CDA is the second best brand with 91% and Zanussi is the third best brand with 91%.

Biggest Refrigerator Retailers

The biggest fridge retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 366 current fridge offers from eBay. The second biggest fridge retailer is Amazon UK with 262 offers. That means eBay is significantly bigger than Amazon UK when it comes to refrigerators. Currys is the third biggest retailer with 200 current offers.

When Are Most New Refrigerators Released?

We looked at the release dates for new refrigerators over the last 3 years, but couldn't see any prominent trend. 49 new fridges were released in March 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new fridge releases. The biggest month in 2016 for new fridge releases was July, with 40 new refrigerators released that month. In July 2015 79 new refrigerators were released making it the biggest month that year as well for new fridge releases.

How Fast Do Fridge Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, refrigerators drop in price by 4%. That means a saving of £16 on a typical £463 new fridge if you wait 6 months before buying.

Fridge Net Capacities

This is the total usable (net) capacity of the fridge, measured in litres.

Across the range of refrigerators, the fridge net capacities range from 15L to 700L. The fridge net capacities of the majority of refrigerators range from 110L to 150L. The fridge with the biggest fridge net capacity is the Bartscher700455, which is a 700L capacity refrigerator and currently retails for £2,399.00. The Bartscher700455, which sells for £140.00, has the smallest fridge net capacity and is a 15L capacity refrigerator.

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

Case Designs

We found 326 refrigerators that are built-in refrigerators, which makes built-in the most common case design amongst new refrigerators. The second most common case design amongst new fridges is freestanding. We found 319 fridges that are freestanding fridges.

Heights

Comparing all fridges, the heights range from 370mm to 2,127mm. The refrigerator with the tallest height is the SiemensCI30RP01, which is a 2,029mm high fridge and can be purchased for £3,759.00. The SiemensCI30RP01, which is priced at £79.99, has the shortest height and is a 370mm high fridge.

Widths

The widths of refrigerators range from 350mm to 1,250mm. The HotpointNCD191I, which currently retails for £658.00, has the widest width and is a 900mm wide fridge. The refrigerator with the narrowest width is the HotpointNCD191I, which is a 350mm wide refrigerator and can be purchased for £74.00.

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.

Amongst new refrigerators, the most frequently found energy efficiency rating is A+. We found 295 refrigerators that have an energy efficiency rating of A+. We found 293 refrigerators that have an energy efficiency rating of A++, making this the second most common energy efficiency rating amongst new refrigerators.

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.

Biggest Fridge Retailers

We found 366 current offers for fridges from eBay making it the biggest fridge retailer. That is significantly bigger than the second biggest retailer, Amazon UK for whom we found 262 current offers for fridges. The third biggest retailer is Currys with 200 current fridge offers.
