How much do Beko fridge freezers cost?
Beko freestanding fridge freezers
Beko fridge freezers are among the cheapest you can buy, with an average price tag of around £338.
A basic Beko will set you back £200 to £300 – and for this price it’s possible to get one with a frost-free freezer. Most models are between £350 and £450. This price range covers a host of different storage features, including water dispensers, chiller cabinets and chrome bottle racks.
Beko integrated fridge freezers
Built-in Beko models are pricier than their freestanding equivalent, but they’re still one of the cheapest integrated brands available. Prices range from £300 to £530.
There are two distinct ranges in Beko's built-in collection, based on different fridge-to-freezer ratios. This allows you to choose an integrated Beko depending on whether you want more fresh or frozen food storage space.
Three models have a 50:50 split – which is ideal if you want more freezer space for storing leftovers or bulk-buying and freezing fresh food. The remaining four models have a 70:30 fridge-to-freezer split - for those who eat a lot of fresh food, fruit and vegetables.
While these fridge-to-freezer ratios can be helpful in choosing more fridge or freezer space, these ratios are not completely realistic. When we test fridge freezers, we measure the space you can actually use for storing groceries – unlike manufacturers, who often measure with all of the shelves, drawers and door racks removed. We routinely find less usable space than claimed, with the worst offenders offering as much as 30% less.
Beko American-style fridge freezers
Beko's American-style fridge freezers are less expensive than most of its competitors – you can buy a standard two-door version for less than £600, while a stainless-steel option costs around £700. You'll find models offering plumbed and non-plumbed water dispensers.
Beko also markets a four-door version that has bags of storage space, and - unlike typical American-style models - it has storage drawers in the freezer. This model costs just under £1,000.
