How much do Miele fridge freezers cost?
Miele freestanding fridge freezers
The most basic Miele you can buy has a price tag of around £650. For this, you get a frost-free freezer, fast-freeze function, door-open and high-temperature alarms, electronic controls, and simple storage options including twin salad crisper drawers and a metal bottle rack.
With a budget of £800 upwards, you’ll start to see fridge fans (to even out the temperature), LED lighting, electronic temperature displays, A++ energy ratings and stainless-steel finishes. Spend more than £1,500 and you can get a chill drawer with a separate temperature control (for meat and fish) and a salad crisper drawer with a humidity control for adjusting moisture levels.
You can find out more about these and other fridge freezer features in our features explained guide.
Miele integrated fridge freezers
Built-in models are always more expensive than freestanding equivalents, and brands’ ranges tend to be small. Miele’s built-in range starts at around £900 for an entry-level model with a similar basic spec to that listed above, with top-spec models costing around £1,800.
