My Little Fridge:
We have had our Beko for a while now and I admit it is not a brand I am familiar with. We do mistreat our fridge really mostly by trying to jam too many bottle (milk mostly) into the milk tray in the door! This fridge is much, much better than my old one. The shelves in ours are glass and removable for easy cleaning. There are two shelves.
I have the top shelf for items like meat that need to be kept colder, this is because it is nearer the ice box and it seems to be a tad colder there. The second shelf is where I generally keep the eggs in the large box. A note on this if you have eggs pushed right to the back I have found that the back few freeze! So I am careful about my egg - position. This is also the case if you put salad on the shelf at the back. However for I do not find this a problem now I am aware of it.
This is easy to clean and a great size. Ours is always jammed pack with yogurts, salad and items I need to 'hide'.
We have two door shelves and the milk/bottle rack at the bottom. I don't put too much on the shelves, they are plastic. Fairly easy to clean. I do not remove them to do so.
As stated the freezer / ice box door is a little strange. You need to 'bang' it shut on ours. The outer door again I find it is a lighter close. My dog can open it!
The official dimensions are - 84.0 x 54.5 x 59.5
For an under counter appliance there is a small gap, however this gives me the leverage to pull it out for cleaning underneath as it accumulates items underneath - mostly dog chews and dust! It packs a few few items in. The ice box is good for ice-cream as it does not get as cold in there as my freezer and therefore is softer to scoop out yummy ice-cream (and not like a solid brick that bends the spoon...).
Could be better:
The freezer door needs slamming to make sure it shuts! This is a problem as if it is not closed then it Ices up, items start to defrost and then there is wasted energy. Our light went and we have replaced a few times now, one plastic shelf as slightly broken (probably mistreated by us) but it is still usable and not noticeable (they are quite sturdy).
Recommend yes or no?
I would recommend this item, it is on the whole fit for purpose and I love the glass shelves. I like the sturdiness of the saldad basket and door shelves. Well done Beko!
Would I buy it again?
Yes, as a more affordable item I would. I may look at similar models for improvement in the ice box door and outside door, but interior features I really like.
