Last year at work we decided to give our office kitchen a refurbishment which involved buying some new electrical items. I quite like spending money so I put myself forward for the team and was involved in buying the new white goods. We ordered this online from Currys and it cost just under £220 and delivery was free.
Auto-defrost: One thing I liked about the fridge is that it has an auto-defrost function, this means that it then doesn't fall upon anyone to defrost every now and again. So far, this function has worked quite well and there aren't any signed of any ice building up.
Noise: The noise level is 43 dB(A), to be honest, I have no idea how loud this is, what I will say is that the fridge is really quite and having sat right next to it in the break room, I wouldn't know it was on.
Energy efficiency: This is an A+ rated fridge and has an annual consumption of 149kwh.
Extras: There are 5 shelves, 5 door compartments, 2 salad trays, a wine rack and an egg holder.
The fridge measures approximately 60cm wide, 65cm deep and 175cm tall which I think is an excellent size, it is actually bigger than my fridge freezer that I have at home. The door is hung to open with the hinges to the right; it can be re-hung on the left if needed.
Inside the fridge, there are 5 shelves, all of which are adjustable to different heights and the bottom one has two really deep salad boxes underneath. The shelves are all made from safety glass which is ideal as we do tend to be a little clumsy at work.
You can set the temperature of the fridge by turning a little dial which is situated just under the light in the top right hand corner of the fridge. I still haven’t worked out what is colder, 1 or 6 so I tend to set mine at 3. The fridge does a great job at keeping everything fresh and cool, despite the fact that it probably gets opened more times in a day than your fridge at home does. There is only one negative that I can give about this fridge and it is that the door only opens 90 degrees which can be a bit of a pain in a small space, my fridge door at home opens 180 degrees and if this did the same it would be a lot better.
The fridge serves its purpose really well, I am not sure it would be suitable in my home as its way too big but for work, it serves its purpose so this gets 4 out of 5 stars from me.
