Why buy an American fridge freezer?

An American fridge freezer is sure to be high on the wishlist for many dream kitchens. Here’s what makes them such a desirable addition to any home:

1. Capacity

No other fridge freezers offer as much space as American style. They not only have the trademark double doors, but are also deeper, giving you much more room for your weekly shop. A full size American fridge freezer has room for around 28 bags of shopping in total.

2. Style

The double doors… the dispenser… there’s no denying that an American fridge freezer is a sleek addition to your kitchen. There’s also plenty of variety when it comes to colour, be it black, white, silver or graphite, as well as different styles of handles. 

3. Organisation

With all that extra space, you can be far more organised with your food. You could have shelves for each member of the household or arrange by food type – whatever is easiest for you!

4. Food storage

Having more space also allows you to buy more fresh food. There’s extra room for drinks in the doors and more room on the shelves for fresh fruit and vegetables. Some models also have technology that keeps your food fresher for longer.

5. Frost free

Most American fridge freezers are frost free, which means you never have to worry about defrosting them.

6. Water dispenser and ice maker

Another much loved feature included in many American fridge freezers, you can get water straight from the fridge or add some ice to your glass. Some fridges with water dispensers need to be plumbed in and connected to an existing water pipe but others have a refillable water tank don't need to be plumbed in.
