Guide to Buying a Fridge Freezer

Fridge freezers are a great way to save space in your kitchen and offer a flexible solution to storing your fresh and frozen food. They take up less room than having two separate appliances with various specifications to suit any home. If you’re wondering which options are best for your household, look no further. Our guide will tell you everything you need to know.


Split Fridge/Freezers 

These are great for easy access to both fridge and freezer sections with separate external doors. Some models are evenly split, while others feature a smaller freezer section that can be placed either above or below the fridge. 

Concealed Freezers

Great for those who don’t eat much frozen food, these models are predominantly fridges, usually with a freezer compartment accessed at the top of the refrigerator. This freezer doesn’t have an external door.  

Internal Space

Ensure the fridge/freezer has all the compartments you need to store your food safely and organize everything. If you drink a lot of bottled drinks, look for top-shelf wine racks or space for tall glasses in the door. If you eat a lot of salad, some models include a specially regulated drawer that keeps groceries fresher for longer. For meat-eaters, make sure you have glass shelves rather than wire, as this will prevent raw meat juices from dripping onto other food.

Extra Features 

Door Alarms

Many models come equipped with an alarm that lets you know when the door has been left open or when the temperature drops to an unsafe level. 


Holiday Mode

A convenient feature that allows an empty fridge to run on the most economical setting while keeping the freezer running as usual. 


Adjustable Shelving

This is an excellent feature when you need to refrigerate oversized items, whether it’s a large casserole dish or multiple glass bottles.
