Black Friday Fridge Freezer Deals Buying Guide


When buying a Black Friday fridge deal, first measure the space in your home where the fridge will live. You need to make sure the fridge you choose will fit with enough space around the sides and rear for ventilation. Also consider the space for the fridge doors to open, you do not want it crashing into any benchtops, cupboards or furniture.


Fridge capacity 400 litres is a good starting point if you are a couple. Bear in mind the types of food you buy and try and accommodate for this. For example, if you like your fruit and veg, you might need a little more space in your crisper. If you are a family of four, your fridge will need to be around 520 to 600 litres. Again, this may vary depending on the types of food you buy and how often you shop.


There are four key styles of Black Friday fridges to choose from. A top mount freezer, bottom mount freezer, American Style side-by-side or French door. This is based on personal preference, but also height consideration. If you are shorter, a bottom mount freezer might mean you forget about things on the top shelf of a large fridge. If you are taller, it might get annoying to always have to crouch to get things out of the crisper in a top mount freezer/fridge. Work out which space you would be using most in your fridge and that will help you figure out which type of placement works for you.


Energy efficiency Larger fridges tend to consume more energy, side by side fridges also use more power. Features, such as ice dispensers or chilled water dispensers, will again increase your energy use. Make sure you think about this when considering the price of the fridge: the price of purchase versus the future cost of running the fridge. You can choose whether your fridge freezer seamlessly matches your kitchen or stands out as a feature.
