American-style fridge freezers
Our new reviews include three American-style fridge freezers, with models from Samsung, LG and less well-known Hisense. These cool-looking models make a big impression in your kitchen, but our tough tests uncover how good they are at actually cooling food.
A great fridge freezer will chill and freeze fresh food quickly, helping it stay fresher for longer. Choosing a Best Buy fridge freezer might even help you cut down on food waste.
All fridges great and small
Love fresh food and need to feed a big household? A tall fridge might be best for you, and we’ve just tested four of them - including two Bosch models. The best tall fridges will keep steady and even temperatures from the bottom to the top, helping you avoid food spoiling in warm patches.
Browse all our Bosch fridge reviews.
If you want something more compact and need to fit your fridge in around your kitchen cabinets, you’re probably looking for an under-counter model. Some of these fridges come with an ice box so that you can freeze a bit of fresh food too. Use our test results to look for a model with low running costs to help keep your energy bills under control.
