All You Need To Know For Our Best Fridge Freezer Reviews

A fridge doesn’t just have to be a ‘fridge’.

A very elegant Side-by-Side Fridge Freezer, the Samsung RFG23UEBP.

Fridges wit an integrated freezer have long become an essential part of probably every household in the UK. They have played an integral part in sustaining our high quality of life and make sure that our food doesn’t go bad. And of course with modern technology advancing, there are loads of variations and styles to be had: The classic fridge freezer or stand alones, as well as ‘side by side fridges’, which is an American style fridge that is usually not only big but has integrated ice cube dispensers.
In this buying guide to our best fridge freezer reviews we’ll take a look at all the different styles and variations, check out their pro’s and con’s and finally name some of the UK’s best fridge brands.

Types of Fridge Freezers

A fridge no longer just cools food but acts as a freezer, design element and storage possibility. We’ve listed the different models and their characteristics.

Type of Fridge Description
Fitted Fridge A fitted fridge is integrated into the kitchen furniture and usually holds around 130 litres to 350 litres. You might not recognize it from the outside at first as it will look like any other cupboard.
Free Standing Fridge A classic free standing fridge is the most common in the UK and most parts of Europe. Usually made from stainless steel, it can stand freely anywhere in your kitchen providing there’s a nearby socket. A free standing fridge is much more efficient as it has better insulation, therefore using less power.
Fridge Freezer The fridge freezer is also a very popular combination. Usually the fridge has an integrated freezer draw with a capacity of around 30 litres. Enough for a pack of ice cream and a pizza, though for those who need more space a model with multiple draws in the freezer and an overall capacity of 120 litres is the better option. Also a small freezer draw inside the fridge is less energy efficient.
Side by Side Fridges / French Door Fridges These are the huge fridges you often see in American kitchens and upmarket British homes. They have double doors and are usually split into a freezer and fridge side with a combined capacity of up to 500 litres. Additionally they have an integrated water and ice dispenser for which they require a separate water supply. The problem with side by side fridges is their efficiency and that they take up a lot of space.
Bottle Cooler Bottle coolers are simply used to cool designated wines, beers and other drinks. They’re usually smaller yet, with a glazed door offer a nice design element.

Pro’s and Con’s of Fridges

If you’re looking to buy a fridge then take a look at each model’s strengths and deficits and compare them to find the right one for you.

Which Fridge is suitable for you?

Do you require a lot of space?
If you need a lot of space for your groceries and frozen foods a fridge freezer combination is probably just right for you. Side by side fridges are suitable for larger families and larger kitchens.

Are you looking for an affordable fridge?
In order to find a good deal on fridges you’ll need to compare different models. Depending on the brand and style of individual fridges the prices vary considerably. The conventional way to buy a fridge is in your local electrics store or home store as well as supermarkets like Tesco and Asda though there will be less selection here. The internet offers the most variety and special deals and buying online is the most comfortable way of purchasing a fridge, despite the fact that special delivery terms apply.


Do you want flexibility?
Flexibility is not the first thing that comes to mind when viewing fridges but free standing fridges can be placed anywhere near a socket. This allows you to be more flexible with the placement of other kitchen furniture. They also tend to be more energy efficient. An efficient fridge should always have a energy rating of A+ to A+++.

Do you require technical features?
The concepts of smart fridges that order food for you and connect to the internet are not far away but are yet to be found in regular retail. Though some fridges have electronic temperature dials and LED screens for your convenience and come with a small range of other features that give you the information necessary to always keep an eye on your food.

Useful Advice for buying a Fridge Freezer

Based on our experience there is certain criteria that determines a good fridge. Look out for the following to find the most suitable model for you, which will last long and is energy efficient.

  • Efficiency: Efficiency is marked as energy rating and ranges from A to G with additions. For example an extremely efficient fridge is rated A++ and uses 50% less power than a regular A – Fridge.
  • Capacity: Capacity is simple. It’s measured in litres and a single household will need less than shared living or family households. Also you should aim to match your eating habits. If you don’t enjoy frozen foods often then a smaller freezer or freezer draw is the best option for you.
  • Material: A fridge will become messy at some point. You or your children will eventually spill or smear food on the outside or inside which is why an easy clean material like plastic or stainless steel is the best for any fridge. Also the less tiny cracks, gaps and angles it has, the less of a struggle it will be to clean.
