Top tips on how to buy a fridge freezer

Before you buy a fridge freezer, it's important to think about these factors: 

  • Depending on your needs, family size and kitchen design, you'll need to consider the type first; an integrated fridge freezer, freestanding fridge freezer or American-style fridge freezer. 
  • Both the external dimensions and internal capacity are key, and the usable internal space can vary from what the manufacturer claims - as our tests reveal. 
  • Reduce the risk of any irritating humming by using our test results to check how noisy your fridge freezer will be.
  • Energy Saver logo
    Refrigeration accounts for about 20% of the electricity used by domestic appliances, so check energy use. To save money on your electricity bills, look for our Which? Energy Saver logo - we give it to Best Buy fridge freezers that match up to our efficiency criteria. 

How we test fridge freezers

We fill every fridge freezer we test - 165 so far - with groceries to test how true manufacturers claims are about fridge freezer capacity and to check how sensible the design is. 

We measure how well a fridge freezer retains its cooling abilities as the temperature of the room changes, and we use a temperature probe to ascertain how long it takes for a fridge freezer to cool food to 5oC from room temperature. We also check how long a compartment will keep cool in a power cut.
