American-Style Fridge Freezers
A fridge freezer in the American style is a wonderful addition to any kitchen. They're big and striking, making an impact. They're also extremely practical, with plenty of storage and features like drinking water and ice dispensers.
However, it's worth bearing a few things to keep in mind prior to purchasing one.
American fridge freezers tend to be bigger than UK models. This means that you will have more space to store your groceries. The average size can hold up to 38 bags of food items and is ideal for families who have a big appetite and often entertain guests. Select a model that has an integrated water and ice dispenser to provide convenience in having chilled drinks available on demand. Our selection includes slimline models designed for small spaces as in addition to large double-door options to fit your family.
You can find American refrigerator freezers with a variety of designs to complement your kitchen. You can pick from sleek silver, elegant black, minimalist white or bolder finishes.
We have models from leading brands which means you can be sure that the quality is up to scratch. Our collection also includes refrigerator freezers that have an A energy rating, so you can be confident about the environmental impact of your new purchase as well as conserving money on your electricity bills.
Before you purchase it is important to measure the area you'll be placing your American fridge-freezer. Verify that the fridge freezer is able to open and close its door comfortably. Also, check if there are any shelves or drawers in the interior. We recommend planning your journey to the kitchen, with the appliance set up, so you know if there are any areas that are difficult to maneuver around. It is important to ensure that you're able to reach your favourite snacks, too!
The size of refrigerator freezers that are American-style is not the only thing that makes them stand out. They are a great opportunity to impress your friends and family with your wealth and taste. They also usually include a variety of features that other fridges do not, such as water and ice dispensers, digital displays and fancy 0@ fruit and veg drawers for longer-lasting freshness.
Fridges also tend to have more color choices than other types of appliances, meaning you can find a model that matches your kitchen. The stainless steel models with brushed finishes are especially eye-catching, as they blend seamlessly into the kitchen, creating an elegant yet subtle design statement.
The latest American-style refrigerators are also equipped with a variety of smart technologies that can cut down on food waste, and simplify your life. For instance the Samsung Bespoke range of fridges (which made its debut at CES in 2021) can be customized to your specific needs with various colors and sizes. You can also install a 21.5-inch Android Tablet that provides access to the internet and a selection of apps, such as shopping lists, calendars recipes, messages, pictures and timers, among others. It will recognize your voice and answer questions, just as Hal 9000 did in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Not everyone needs a sleek refrigerator. You may prefer a less flashy, but still functional model such as the iQ500 from SMEG. It is available in a variety of classic retro colours. It even has an unplumbed water dispenser located on the right-hand side of the door, which allows you to give cold, clean filtered water and instant Ice.
American fridge freezers are larger than their British counterparts, allowing you to store and keep chilled more food items until you're ready to eat it. These fridge freezers are great for large families and those who have frequent guests. They can also be used by anyone who wishes to buy in bulk or at a discounted price to reduce the waste.
You can find a wide assortment of storage options inside the American-style fridge including drawers and shelves. Some have adjustable shelving which allows you to modify your refrigerator to accommodate different sizes of food and drink containers. Door racks are ideal for storing jars of nut butter, pasteurised juices, and condiments like ketchup or mustard as well as freezer drawers that are ideal for frozen meats, frozen vegetables, and bread. It is advised that milk not be stored in the door since it can spoil faster due to fluctuations in temperature.
A well-stocked, organized fridge is a beautiful sight. However, aside from looking good, a fridge well-organized will help you save money, prevent food wastage and lessen the annoying fridge smells. The good news is that it's fairly easy to achieve, especially when you have the right kitchen appliances.
Use containers and storage solutions with clear labels to establish an organized system for your food. So, you won't be searching for a jar of hummus, or wondering what the strange green blob at the bottom of your freezer is. Use bins, baskets, and clear plastic containers to separate different kinds of food and invest in refrigerator door racks ($13, Amazon) to organize bottles and jars.
American fridge freezers can provide a modern flair to your kitchen. They come with large storage capacities which allow you to store plenty of your daily groceries while also keeping your food fresh. They can be costly to run due to their energy consumption. You can reduce your electricity bill by up to 50% when you choose an appliance that has higher energy efficiency ratings. Models with an A or A+ energy rating will use less power than those with lower ratings.
Energy efficient refrigerators can save you a substantial amount of money in the long run. Investing in one with an emissions rating that is low will help to reduce your household's impact on the environment too. Certain models also have a holiday mode which automatically switches the fridge freezer to a power-saving mode when you are away.
A lot of energy-efficient refrigerators include features like an automatic icemaker or twin cooling systems. These systems help to increase energy efficiency by separating the fridge and freezer sections, and preventing the warm air in the fridge from causing freezing issues in the freezer's bottom.
Slimline models are great for those looking for a compact American fridge freezer. These can be as little as 70cm and are suitable for UK homes with less space. These models are often positioned side-by-side and feature a freezer compartment on top of the fridge, so you won't have to climb to the ground to access your frozen goods. These come in many different styles, like stainless steel or silver.
Buy a new fridge freezer
American fridge freezers are an excellent addition to any kitchen and provide a lot of storage. Whether you're a foodie who likes to keep a range of fresh ingredients in your fridge or a parent with an hungry family to feed or a keen entertainer with an audience to impress, they'll allow you to store everything from drinks and snacks to leftovers from parties and meals.
There are models in many shades such as sleek black that can add a lot to the appearance. The majority of models come with a wide choice of door racks, which allow you to store larger bottles and cartons upright, freeing up space on the shelves to store other items. There are also a variety of plumbed dispensers of water and ice that allow you to access instant cold ice drinking water or crushed ice for cocktails at a moment's notice.
Selecting a model that is energy efficient is also important with American fridge freezers. Typically they're switched on all day, so they require a high degree of energy efficiency to lower the cost of your household's expenses for energy. Look out for the Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) label, which is visible on all our models - a higher EER rating is more efficient.
Don't forget to think about the delivery and installation costs of your new appliance. It is essential to determine the width and height of your entryway and any doors or steps it will have to go through to access your kitchen. You can then compare these measurements with the dimensions of the model to make sure it will fit before purchasing. You can hire a handyman or strong man to help you move it up and down the stairs.
