    Choosing the perfect Fridge / Freezer

    There are several things to consider when buying a new fridge, freezer, or combination fridge-freezer. These helpful tips are aimed to get you the best product for your budget.

    Styling

    Depending whether you go integrated or not, the fridge is probably the largest appliance in your kitchen, so it’s important that you are happy with the style and colour. The GRUNDIG GSBS16312B is Black but there are potentially other colour options available. The same goes for the MIELE KDN37132id.

    Size

    Dimensions are key, particularly if you’re limited by space. The majority of fridge freezers will come in the standard 60cm width, but there are many different variations available from retailers like Currys. The Grundig GRUNDIG GSBS16312B has the following dimensions 1790 x 910 x 720 mm (H x W x D) and the Miele MIELE KDN37132id is 1772 x 560 x 550 mm (H x W x D). Use these to measure up in your kitchen and be confident that it will fit. Also consider the space required for opening the door. You can find the size including door openings above in the spec table.

    Noise

    An often forgotten about consideration, the noise of the fridge. As technology has developed they have become much quieter in recent years, but there’s no doubt they still make a noise. This is more of a consideration for people who’s bedroom is located close to the kitchen, for example smaller flats. So keep an eye on the noise rating if it’s important to you. The GRUNDIG GSBS16312B has a decibel rating of 43 dB(A) and the MIELE KDN37132id is 39 dB(A).

    Features

    Whether it’s a new iPhone, a laptop or even a fridge, we want technology and features that make our gadget interesting, or save us time. Check out the key features section and some of the key specs in the comparison above to determine which fridge freezer offers the best range of features, and which are most likely to suit your usage. Features can range from auto-defrost, to door open alarms, interior lighting and water dispensers. Some even have digital displays nowadays.

    Price

    An obvious one, but price always plays a factor in the buying process for any high priced item like a fridge freezer. Try and decide on a budget and make sure you stick to it, or you can be easily persuaded to upgrade (either by your other half or the salesman).
