Refrigerators hey? Where would we be without them? Well probably better more discerning shoppers, more in tune with the seasons and less likely to eat as much meat, however, we do have them and we all rely on them.
This is my review on my fridge, I've had it for 5 years now and it has never had a single problem. When we moved house a few years ago, we decided to bin our old fridge and use the move as an excuse to buy a new fridge/freezer. So we went to a large electrical retailers and bought the one above for around £300 and had to wait for a few days before it arrived. The fridgefreezer came, it was installed under the stairs (just) and hasn't moved since or caused the slightest problem.
The fridgefreezer is a simple beast, it has a milk carton tray, two trays above in the doors for eggs/small items etc and another level of trays above those which can hold stuff which you may need to protect because they have removable plastic protectors. I've always kept grapes or tomatoes in them as they are small enough to go in and with the hood remain fresher for longer.
The body of the fridge is a simple one, four levels, three shelves plenty of depth light at the top right hand corner and on the bottom of the fridge two open trays which we keep our perishables such as lettuce, cucumbers etc. The freezer compartment has four shelves, all with white plastic doors which protect the trays but all can be opened and the trays pulled out. So far in five years we've had to defrost the freezer twice, mainly because the compartment above the trays slowly becomes clogged with ice.
The fridge compartment has plenty of capacity and just about holds our shopping for the week which is impressive considering we have a household of 4. The doors still retain their seals and so far we've never had the "oh no, we left the freezer door open" which in five years is impressive if you ask me.
I can't recommend highly enough this product it has looked after us for the last few years and gives no signs of giving up the ghost. All the insides can be taken out and washed, the trays in the freezer are easily removed once defrosted and the only slight quibble is that the fronts of the freezer draws have a tendency to come off their runners but they can be easily clipped back into the grooves.
My only quibble is the way the door opens as it would have made a lot more sense for the door to be on the left side of the fridge rather than the right but that's my fault for putting it in an awkward space rather than the fridge's fault.
