Advantages: Attractive finish, frost-free, roomy fridge, A rated, good value
Disadvantages: Small freezer
I bought this model of fridge freezer in October 2009 when moving house. I was looking for an attractive appliance which was quite slim and and had doors that could be hung to open out to the left or right.
I bought the appliance in black. The finish is very shiny and looks very attractive and stands out, especially against my white kitchen cabinets. All of my visitors have commented on how good the fridge looks. The only slight problem with this is that it really shows up fingerprints and smears, so maybe not the best option if you have kids.
The appliance is A rated for energy efficiency. I purchased it from Comet for roughly £270.
Other reviews have stated that this is a noisy appliance, but I have not found this to be the case at all. My front room and kitchen have no door separating them - the fridge is the closest appliance to my front room and I never hear it, even when there is no TV or radio on.
The doors can be switched from left to right. This was very handy as when the appliance was delivered, the door opened the wrong way for our kitchen. My boyfriend was able to switch the doors over, but it took him about an hour. This was because he had difficulty undoing two of the nuts.
The refridgerator section is quite roomy, has three glass shelves and a salad box at the bottom in the main compartment. There are three shelves on the door, ideal for bottles, jars, cheese etc. There is also a section in the door for eggs. The compartments feel solid, and are easy to wipe down if there are any spills.
The freezer has an ice shelf, with ice tray, one section with a pull-down door and two drawers. These compartments are not particularly roomy, so although it suits just me and my boyfriend, a larger family might struggle.
The fridge keeps food very fresh and the temperature seems to stay stable. The freezer is frost free, so no defrosting. The ice compartment pulls out like a drawer, and is really handy as it keeps the trays separate from the rest of the freezer, without taking up much space at all.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this fridge freezer. It is reliable, does what it needs to, is a perfect size for my small kitchen and looks lovely. A bigger freezer compartment would have been ideal, but is suitable enough for a family of two.
Summary: An ideal fridge freezer for a couple
