Should I wait for Black Friday to buy appliances?
Black Friday is a good time to buy appliances. Especially now that it has essentially become a month-long stream of amazing deals. However, you will also see great offers on fridge freezers as we approach Boxing Day and the New Year sales, so if you don’t find exactly what you want straightaway, you won’t miss out.
How to find the best fridge freezer for you
How much storage do I need?
Most models vary in the ratio of fridge to freezer space available. So if you like to make meals from scratch most evenings with fresh ingredients, go for a big fridge, but if you prefer to batch cook, prioritise freezer space.
Still unsure? Buy a design with a ‘multi-zone’ that can be switched between a fridge and freezer. That way, you could use it to chill meat and drinks for summer barbecues, then freeze soup and casseroles in winter.
What fridge freezer will keep my food fresher for longer?
Just as supermarkets store different foods in different ways, so should your fridge-freezer. A cool zone in the fridge, set at a temperature of 0-5°C, will keep meat, fish and dairy fresh, and will defrost food slowly and safely.
Fast freezing locks in the nutrients, moisture and flavour of any fresh food, and a humidity-controlled drawer mean you’ve seen the last of those mushy cucumbers and frosty lettuce. Invest in just a few of these features and you’ll quickly notice that you’re throwing fewer groceries away.
How do I keep running costs down?
Fridge-freezers guzzle more energy than any other appliance, as they’re working 24/7 to keep your food cold, so to keep running costs down look for features like a Holiday Mode.
Activate this when you’re going away and it will either shut the fridge down, or bring it up to around 14°C to keep butter and eggs fresh. I’ve mentioned the benefits of door-in-door design, but also look out for an inverter compressor, which, rather than just turning the power on full blast each time you open the door, uses just enough to get the fridge or freezer back to the right temperature.
What extras do I need?
An ice and water dispenser is a real convenience, letting you grab ice for a drink or chilled water whenever you want, but check whether it needs to be plumbed into the mains. If it does, there may be extra installation costs, but you won’t then have the hassle of refilling the water tank.
Wi-Fi connected smart fridges are a reality now, too. The most simple let you control features like fast freezing remotely, but Samsung’s top-of-the-range fridges have in-built cameras so you can see what’s inside when you’re at the supermarket, and a screen where you can browse recipes or stream live TV.
