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

Resource ID 133

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.

Resource ID 129

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.

When Are Most New Refrigerators Released?

The most common period for new refrigerators to be released in is between February and March. For the latest fridge features you may want to consider waiting until February 2018. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current fridges tend to drop off when the next models are released. The biggest month in 2017 for new refrigerator releases was March, with 46 new fridges released that month. 38 new fridges were released in February 2016 making it the biggest month that year for new refrigerator releases. In July 2015 79 new refrigerators were released making it the biggest month that year for new fridge releases.

How Fast Do Fridge Prices Drop After Release?

On average refrigerators drop in price by 4% in the first 6 months after release. If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £18 on a typical £463 new fridge by waiting 6 months before buying.

Fridge Net Capacities

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

The fridge net capacities of refrigerators range from 15L to 583L. The fridge net capacities of most fridges range from 100L to 150L. The LiebherrGKv 5790, which sells for £1,413.41, has the biggest fridge net capacity and is a 583L capacity refrigerator. The LiebherrGKv 5790 has the smallest fridge net capacity. This refrigerator is a 15L capacity fridge and can be purchased for £140.00.

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

Case Designs

The most popular case design amongst new fridges is built-in. We found 320 fridges that are built-in fridges. Freestanding is the second most popular case design amongst new refrigerators. We found 311 refrigerators that are freestanding fridges.

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.

We found 293 refrigerators that have an energy efficiency rating of A+, which makes A+ the most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new refrigerators. We found 290 fridges that have an energy efficiency rating of A++, making A++ the second most frequently found 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.
