I was originally looking for an American style fridge freezer, but after doing some measurements and realising just how much of the kitchen one would take up, I decided to go for this model instead. It's wider than your average fridge freezer, which really does make a big difference to the capacity. I bought it 6 months ago and have never had any problems fitting in everything I need for a family of four.
The fridge section has two salad/vegetable drawers and 3 glass shelves, plus a half depth shelf right at the top which is handy for storing jars of jam, pickle etc. There's also a wine rack included. There are 2 full width shelves on the back of the door and 4 smaller ones to either side of the water dispenser. I removed one of these small ones in order to have a tall enough area to keep a 2 litre drinks bottle. Cold water is supplied via a tank that you fill up rather than a plumbed system. It's simple to use, but a few weeks after getting it the novelty wore off, and we haven't used it since (despite my husband's insistence that he needed a fridge with this feature!). The only issue we have had with the fridge is that recently the seal at the top has come loose, meaning that every time you close the door you have to check that it has closed properly. It's a bit of a pain, but nothing major.
The freezer section has a twist operated ice tray with a drawer beneath for storing the cubes. This is a great alternative to the ice dispensers on more expensive models. There are 3 full width drawers (although the bottom one isn't full depth) and one half width drawer alongside the ice cube tray. Again, there is plenty of space to store what you need for a family of four. The frost free feature actually works too, which I wasn't expecting!
Overall I'm pleased with my purchase and would buy from Beko again. It's nothing fancy, but is practical for family use.
