Designer fridges top poll of most sought-after appliancesHave we tested your dream fridge freezer?

17 April 2015

A survey of 2000 UK consumers has revealed that designer fridges are the most sought after kitchen appliances in 2015. The survey, conducted by Currys PC World, found that designer fridges were more desirable than other kitchen tech such as coffee machines, stand mixers and juicers.

But is a fancy-looking fridge really worth the extra money? We carry out more than 200 tests on fridges to see how well they cool food, whether their thermostat is reliable and how energy efficient they are.

A good fridge is an important part of every kitchen – but picking a new one based solely on its design could land you with a dud. 

Our unique fridge comparison tool not only allows you to search for a new model based on its brand, colour, size and price – you can also use it to ensure that the fridge scored highly in the parts of our tests that matter most to you. 

The best fridges chill groceries quickly, preventing harmful bacteria from growing and helping extend the shelf-life of your food. They'll also keep food safely chilled continuously – regardless of what the temperature is in your kitchen.
