I had never heard of the Beko name before I purchased this fridge freezer, but it was very good value for the money and the salesman insisted that it was a well known and reliable brand. I have been more than happy so far with my purchase. It fitted well into my kitchen, has a smart and modern appearance, and has plenty of space for all the shopping my family of four. Basically it does exactly what it says on the can. The fridge door is well laid out, with plenty of room for large bottles of milk and fizzy drinks etc. The only downside I can point out is that the drainage hole at the back does block occasionally and creates a puddle on the floor of the fridge, but this is easily unblocked with the little plastic gizmo supplied with the fridge. I would be happy to recommend this brand, and would definitely purchase one again, but hopefully not for quite a number of years.
I have never had a new fridge. In fact I've had the same fridge since I moved into this house and it was really small and ancient because it was a hand me down. I have an extremely small kitchen and every time have looked in the catalog for a new fridge freezer have never found one to fit in the space of my current one.
However, I thought it was right about time I got a new one and re-decorated my kitchen. I set up the measurements on the website for my kitchen and I found a space next to my tumble drier where it would fit perfectly. It took a few days for it to arrive, but when it did, I found it to be extremely heavy! I could barely move the box out of my porch and into my living room.
Upon opening the box I found that the fridge was packed neatly and securely. There was a lot of polystyrene and a lot of mess afterwards, but that's to be expected. It took me a couple of hours to get it into my kitchen and set it up like the manual stated. The manual is not easy to read. Everything is in a mixed up order. The first set or instructions are at the back of the manual, rather than at the front and it confused me. I was also pleased that the measurements on the catalog website were bang on. The fridge freezer fit perfectly in my desired spot.
When I put it on, it made a heck of a lot of noise, but the manual said it would. On a whole, this one is a lot noisier than my previous one, but it can't be perfect. I left it for 24 hours before putting anything in. It's quite big and it is a lovely metallic silver/grey. Which is perfect for me because it matches everything in my kitchen.
The doors are reversible so you can open then whichever way you want. I can't say how hard or easy it is in changing the door hinge, because I haven't done it. Upon opening the fridge there are three compartments in the door which I fit a lot in. The top shelf holds my eggs and the rest is free space. The middle shelf holds my sauces and the bottom holds drinks and milk. Inside the fridge there is three shelves and one salad drawer. I have a shelf for every desired product, salad, dairy and meat.
The freezer is also quite large. It comes with an ice cube tray, a fast freeze compartment and two drawers. Again I separated my freezer into potato products, meat and deserts. I still have a lot of space in both fridge and freezer.
So far I haven't had any problems with this product and I think it's brilliant. I took out an extra 3 year warranty for only £60 and I'm really happy with it. I am yet to experience any problems and I have had this product for two weeks. I would highly recommend this product to big families with little money.
