This is a great little fridge from Beko, with the emphasis on little. This is also the reason I bought it. At only 54cm wide it is one of the narrowest on the market and ideal for fitting into the small space left for it in my very small kitchen. Having said that, being 143cm tall, with four shelves, two vegetable containers and another glass shalf area above that, it is more than adequate for our family of five and easily fits a weeks worth of food in.
The door can be fitted to open either way and inside the door are another five levels of storage. The two at the bottom are both roomy enough to fit the height of a two pint bottle of milk. The other three are less far apart. It also comes with a storage unit for eggs, which annoyingly fits ten eggs. You'd think the manufacturers would realise that eggs usually come in 6s or 12s and include two more holes.
The shelves inside the fridge are glass,which at first I was dubious about as it seemed like it would mean more cleaning, but they don't get that grubby that easily and they are fully removable when you need to clean them anyway. They are also adjustable with plenty of fixed positions to choose from. The glass shelf at the bottom above the vegetable trays is also removable.
Having two vegetable drawers instead of one big one has its advantages and disadvantages. It's easy to pick one up when you want to use all the vegetables from that drawer, but sometimes they just aren't big enough. Put a large lump of broccoli in and you struggle to fit anything else in. And you have no chance of fitting in a cucumber!
It's a very quiet fridge, and A class so very efficient. I have mine on coldness setting 2, but the dial goes all the way up to 10 if you want to adjust it colder. It never gets frosty on the walls of fridge or very wet, except for when a cardboard container is in contact with it for a long time, then the cardboard goes soggy. There is a drainage area at the back of the fridge and this occassionally gets clogged, but I suppose thats true of any fridge.
On the whole its a great machine and I'm happy I got it. We've had it for three years now, with no problems at all. It's the same one as Peggy Mitchell has in the Queen Vic - but not for much longer perhaps!
Just had one of these larder fridges delivered this morning to live in my garage.
I have a Beko 15 inch CRT telly in the kitchen I bought second hand off a student and it has been excellent. So I thought I'd give a Beko fridge a try. It cost £149.96 plus £20 delivery. from Miller Bros (QED-UK) on-line store. Their service has been faultless. Well packaged by the manufacturer.
The height of the fridge is 147cm, which is important in my garage, so it is of medium height. No freezer compartment in this larder model, which is important to me as it is standing next to my freezer, so it is not needed. Its a medium width 54cm model, which again was important in the tight fit.
Capacity is 9.2 cu ft. Metal exterior. Adjustable glass interior shelves and a chrome bottle rack. Self defrosting. This looks like a very good buy at this price. As it is out in a cold garage the fridge climate rating was important. This is an SN climate rating model (you need to find out what that means before buying a fridge or freezer, particularly if it is to be located in a garage or other cool outhouse. See the dooyoo buyers guide to fridges and freezers).
Energy A rated.
Waited four hours for it to settle after delivery and then switched on. Nice and quiet. Well made. Everyone well pleased. My Canadian built freezer is nearly 40 years old. I'll let you know how long the Beko lasts.
Update- 6 months old and still going strong. Well pleased. Supplier has gone bust in the downturn.
Update - 3 years old and still going strong.
