If you don't have enough floor space for a separate fridge and freezer in your kitchen, a fridge freezer could be the ideal solution. Which? reviews can help you compare fridge freezers of different type, style and price.
However, fridge freezers tend to be less reliable than standalone fridges and freezers, so check our brand reliability ratings before you buy.
If you have a large family, you might want to consider an American fridge freezer. These have the fridge and freezer next to each other rather than one on top of the other, and many include extra features such an ice maker or water dispenser.
American fridge freezers have huge capacities, offering twice the storage space of conventional models. However, this means that they're larger and taller than conventional fridge freezers, so you'll need to make sure you have enough space in your kitchen.
After central heating, fridge freezers and other refrigeration products are the biggest domestic users of energy, as they're switched on all the time.
Which? tests have found that manufacturers' energy labels don't tell the whole story, so we run our own tests to find out how much energy each fridge freezer uses and how much it costs to run. Running costs can vary by as much as £75 a year between models, so make sure you compare fridge freezers' energy efficiency before you buy.
All fridge freezers will freeze and cool food, but some are much better at it than others. A good fridge chills to the recommended 5°C in a matter of hours, while a bad one could take 24 hours – by which time your food will be in danger of going off more quickly than it should.
Which? tests and compares fridge freezers to see how much food the freezer can freeze in 24 hours, and how quickly the fridge can chill food to 5°C, so you can compare Which? ratings for fridge freezers' cooling power before you buy.
Overall, fridge freezers aren’t as reliable as standalone fridges or freezers, but there are still some really good brands around.
We give freestanding, built-in, conventional and American fridge freezers a reliability score based on the experiences of thousands of owners. Buying one from one of the top-scoring brands in our reliability table should give you the same reliability as buying a separate fridge and freezer.
