About 2 months ago after a very long day I came back to find that my fridge had given up the ghost,it was a fridge freezer so after rescuing as much as possible we had to buy a new fridge-freezer. However, after living with a fridge-freezer for ten years we decided to take the plunge and buy a fridge and a freezer, yes it costs more but the increase in capacity is very useful. So we went to a well-known electrical shop and bought a proline fridge and a separate freezer, the fridge is a stand-alone five foot white fridge. The fridge when it came was a right opening fridge but the space we put it into really needed a left opening fridge so the first thing was to unhinge the door and put it on so it opened from the left, there were instructions in how to do this in the manual and it took about 30 minutes. The fridge comes as four large shelves and at the bottom a couple of containers for vegetables, fruit etc. These are under a glass sheet which the fourth shelf of the fridge. In the door are compartments for eggs at the top, then four more shelves for bottles, condiments etc before a bit shelf at the bottom which will hold 4 2L milk cartons (trust me I''ve checked, we have 3 kids and go through a lot of milk). The capacity of the fridge is the main selling point, we can comfortably fit a weeks worth of perishable goods for a household of 5 and still have capacity for weekend essentials like white wine, chocolate and beer. The fridge cost around 250, which I think is good value for a large fridge and it certainly reduces the change of both your fridge and freezer going down at the same time if you split them apart. The unit we have is white but they come in grey and I think black. The motor isn''t too large but we did have to make sure the fridge is absolutely level as it makes a constant low level buzzing if slightly at an angle. Overall, we haven''t had a problem with the fridge, it keeps the food fresh and doesn''t over freeze, it has a run-off at the bottom which is supposed to keep the fridge from excessive frosting.
