Top 4 Fridge-Freezers for 2020

Fridge-freezers are a must for anyone looking to save space in their kitchen - you get both a fridge and a freezer, without the need to find room for both bulky appliances. There are a lot of different fridge-freezers on the market, so today we’ll be looking at some of the best you can buy in 2020.

Liebherr CNel4213

undefined

Liebherr is a German-Swiss company who have a lot of expertise with fridges and the like. The CNel4213 is a prime example of what they can do - it looks small, but it’s surprisingly spacious inside, boasting 328L of space.

The design is thin and tall, which is both a blessing and a curse. The slim footprint allows it to fit into smaller kitchens more easily, but it’s extra tall - meaning lower ceilings may be a problem. However if you can fit it in, the build is solidly-designed, so it’ll stand up to the rigor of daily life with no problems. Unfortunately there are few modern extras hiding under the hood - this keeps things cool or cold, and little else.

The CNel4213 is a 50/50 split, meaning it gives equal space for the fridge and freezer. This is somewhat unusual - the other 3 fridge-freezers have a 60/40 or 70/30 split in favour of the fridge. So while it has a larger freezer space, it also has a comparatively smaller fridge. If you freeze a lot of food, then extra space will be extremely helpful, but otherwise you’ll be sacrificing helpful fridge space needlessly.

All told, it’s an excellent choice for those who want a slimline appliance with a boosted freezer for long-term storage. Though if you have a low roof, or tend to eat food fresh rather than storing it, you may want to look elsewhere.

Generous capacity
Solid design
Larger freezer
Too tall for some kitchens
Smaller fridge
No extras

Samsung RB31FDRNDSA

undefined

Samsung’s catchily-named RB31FDRNDSA fridge-freezer offers a great alternative to the Liebherr. While it has a slightly smaller capacity (308L vs 328L), it’s split 70/30, so you actually gain more fridge space.

The RB31FDRNDSA has several helpful bits of tech under the hood - Samsung’s ‘Multi-Flow Cooling’ systems help keep the temperature even over the whole of the appliance, and there is a display on the front to allow you to monitor the temperature and status of both sections. Most helpful of all is the little water dispenser mounted into the door - clean, cold water whenever you want it! However it’s not capable of being plumbed into the water supply, which means you’ll have to remember to top it up.

There’s a lot to recommend about the RB31FDRNDSA - for those not interested in the larger freezer of the Liebherr CNel4213 or the stylish design of the Smeg FAB30R would do well to consider this fridge-freezer.

Beko CSG1571

undefined

For those who don’t want to break the bank when redesigning your kitchen, take a look at the Beko CSG1571. At nearly ½ the price of the Samsung and Liebherr models, this will allow you to stash your shopping on a budget.

As expected, there are compromises for such a great price. The CSG1571 is somewhat smaller than other fridge-freezers - 260L split between a big fridge and a smaller freezer. However the small size also gives it a smaller footprint - great for compact kitchens. It’s also reasonably energy efficient - so better for the environment and your electricity bills.

Honestly, there isn’t too much more to say about this model. The build quality is sturdy and well-built, though the design leaves a lot to be desired - especially compared to the colourful Smeg appliances. It’s no surprise the CSG1571 is lacking extras, but the lack of an auto-defrost system is a pain - you’ll have to defrost the freezer the old-fashioned way I’m afraid.

In the end, the Beko CSG1571 is as straightforward as they come: a budget price for a medium-capacity, well-built fridge-freezer. It could stand to have a few more features, but for this price it’s a great choice.

3.5 / 5
Competitive price
Solid design
Energy efficient
Smaller capacity
No auto-defrost
Uninteresting design

Smeg FAB30

undefined

Finally, let’s look at something a bit more stylish - Smeg have a wide range of fashionable and colourful appliances, and the 1950’s-inspired FAB30 is no exception. While the majority of fridges and freezers are either white, black or silver, the Smeg appliances come in a wide range of colours. Red, green, pink, blue - even multicolored or designed like the Union Jack!

It’s not just the colour that pops - the design is all curves, rather than the stark angular design of other fridge-freezers. It makes for an appliance that’s easy on the eyes… if not the wallet. The largest problem with the FAB30 is that it’s expensive - nearly double the cost of the Liebherr & Samsung models, and 7 times the cost of the Beko! That’s a lot to ask for a pink fridge-freezer!

Luckily the FAB30 has a good capacity as well, with a 70/30 split leaving you with a very large fridge, though a small freezer section. It’s also lacking any modern tech under the hood - for that price we would have hoped for a water/ice dispenser.

The Smeg FAB30 has a very clear market in mind - those who want a fridge-freezer to look great in their kitchen. You’ll get a nice big capacity along with it, but the hefty price-tag will have many people tapping out. Still, what price can you put on having a Union Jack in your kitchen?
