Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between 'net' and 'gross' capacity?
AYou see 2 capacities used for fridge-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-freezer?
AThe average noise of a freezer is around 40Db, making it very quiet indeed, and hardly noticeable, even in a quiet kitchen.
QWhat does 'freezing capacity' mean?
AFreezing capacity refers to the volume of food that the freezer is capable of freezing in a set period. The larger the amount, the more quickly it will be frozen.
QWhat is a 'No Frost' system?
AA 'No Frost' system reduces the humidity in the fridge-freezer, and automatically defrosts from time to time. This means there is little or no ice buildup inside the fridge-freezer.

Fridge-freezer Buying Guide

Capacity

Innovations in insulation technology have allowed manufacturers to use thinner walls and doors in their fridge freezers, giving them much bigger internal capacity. The biggest fridge freezers have a total internal capacity of over 600 litres. That's enough to fit three supermarket trolleys full of food! Typical fridge freezers have around 200 to 300 litres of internal storage.

Humidity Control

Many fridge freezers have compartments with humidity control. These work by letting you adjust the humidity of the compartment to keep the food inside in the best possible condition. This means creating dry conditions for meat and fish and humid conditions for fruit and vegetables.

Some of the large American style fridge freezers have a third compartment, separate to the fridge and the freezer, which can be set to a 'chill' mode of -1°C. This temperature is perfect for preserving the natural moisture in fresh fish and meat.

loading image
The latest Hotpoint fridge freezers come with Active Oxygen technology. This unique system releases oxygen molecules into the fridge which purifies the air circulating inside and inhibits bacterial growth by up to 90%. The system can preserve the first day freshness of your food for up to 9 days without affecting the smell, taste or colour of your food.

Ice Makers and Water Dispensers

Many of the premium fridge freezers come with built in ice makers and chilled water dispensers. These are great for quick cold drinks and some of the latest models include ice crushers which are great for making cocktails. Some models also include sparkling water on tap, with a built in Sodastream machine.

Look out for models with built in water filters, which gives you cleaner tasting water and clearer ice. If the fridge freezer doesn't have a water filter you can always add a water filter to the water pipe which supplies the appliance. Also look for tall ice dispenser openings in the door which makes it easier to fill large glasses.

Often the ice make is located inside one of the freezer compartments. This allows a large amount of ice to be stored, however it reduces the available freezer space for food. Some models contain the entire ice maker within the door which leaves greater room for food in the freezer.

Most models can be connected directly to the water supply, although normally you need a water outlet within 1.5m of the appliance (always make sure you use a connection hose designed for drinking water). Some fridge freezers have a water tank that you fill manually which supplies the ice maker.

Other Features To Consider

Frost Free: Many modern fridge freezers are frost free which means that they do not require defrosting. They achieve this by controlling the moisture content of the air in the freezer. This has the added benefit of reducing freezer burn to food that is stored in the freezer.

LED Lighting: LED internal lighting creates a bright, well lit interior making it easier to find your food as well as saving energy.

Multi Function Compartments: Some of the top end fridge freezers have a third compartment which can be set to either be a fridge or a freezer at the push of a button. They can also be set to an intermediate 'Chill' mode, which maintains a temperature of -1°C, ideal for keeping fresh meat and fish in great condition.

Shelving: Cheaper fridge freezers come with wire shelves. Glass shelves found on mid range models upwards have the advantage of catching spills so that they do not drop onto food below. Some shelves fold away to allow storage of tall items and other types slide forwards to make it easy to access items at the back. Look for models with metal shelf brackets for durability.

Rapid Cooling: Fridge freezers with Rapid Cooling can quickly chill or freeze your food, which is ideal when you bring home a large quantity of new food.
