Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the difference between 'net' and 'gross' capacity?
AYou see 2 capacities used for fridges and freezers - gross capacity refers to the total inside capacity of the appliance, while net capacity is the total *usable* capacity, after discounting the volume taken up by shelves, plastic moulding, etc.
QWhat is the average noise level of a fridge?
AThe average noise of a fridge is around 40Db, making it very quiet indeed, and hardly noticeable, even in a quiet kitchen.
QWhat is a 'No Frost' system?
AA 'No Frost' system reduces the humidity in the fridge, and automatically defrosts from time to time. This means there is little or no ice buildup inside the fridge.
QWhat is a 'Multi Airflow' system?
AThis is a system that ensures an even distribution cold air around all parts of the fridge. The air passes through an air filtration system before being recirculated, which removes unwanted odours to prevent odour contamination of other foods in fridge.

Fridge Buying Guide

Capacity

A dedicated refrigerator without freezer can often give you larger fridge storage capacity than even a substantial American style fridge freezer. The largest stand alone fridges have up to 400 litres of internal storage capacity. That's enough to store two supermarket trolleys full of food.

Another great advantage of a dedicated fridge is that they often have matching dedicated freezers. Placing the two side by side can create a combined fridge and freezer capacity big enough for even very large families. Just look out for fridges that have reversible doors which will let you create a fridge freezer combination with both doors opening our from the middle.

Moisture Control

Different types of food are best stored at different levels of humidity. Meat and fish are best stored in dry conditions, preserving the natural juices in the meat. Fruit and vegetables are better preserved in more humid conditions, with fruit best stored in semi humid conditions and vegetables best stored in fairly humid conditions.

Many fridges have moisture control compartments which allow you to vary the compartment's humidity level to suit the type of food that is stored inside. This will keep your food tasting fresher for longer.

Shelves

Budget and small refrigerators sometimes come with wire shelves. Whilst these are economical and can be useful for storing bottles and cans, they provide no drip protection if food from one shelf leaks and drips on to the shelf below. Premium fridges come with glass shelves which stop drips and are easy to clean.

Some fridges have folding shelves which fold away to allow you to store tall items like bottles. Others have pull out shelves which slide partially out of the fridge to make it easier to reach items at the back.

Other Features To Consider

Water Dispensers: Some fridges come with built in filtered water dispensers. Unlike American style fridge freezers, often fridge only water dispensers are simple in door reservoirs that you fill manually. This completely avoids the needs for a plumbed water connection.

The water reservoir normally contains a water filter which gives you access to cool filtered water without needing to open the fridge door. Look for models with a child lock on the water dispenser to prevent small hands playing and making a mess.

LED Lighting: Bright LED interior lights make it easy to see everything in your fridge. LED lights are also use very little energy and create very little heat, making them ideal for maintaining a constant temperature inside the fridge.

Great Design: Why not make your fridge the centerpiece of your kitchen with an icon fridge design? The fridge doesn't have to be the boring box in the corner and there are a number of unique fridge designs available, especially from Smeg.

Multi Airflow System: Some premium fridges use a multi airflow system to ensure an even distribution cold air around all parts of the fridge. These systems work by circulating air which often passes through an air filtration system before being recirculated. The air filter removes unwanted odours to prevent odour contamination of other foods in fridge.

Rapid Cooling: Rapid cooling is a feature that allows you to temporarily increase the cooling rate of the fridge so that it cools new items more quickly. This is ideal for those times when you bring home a big shop from the supermarket.

When Are Most New Fridges Released?

The most common period for new refrigerators to be released in is between January and March. For the latest fridge features you may be best waiting until January 2021. Also the price of the current fridges may drop off just before the latest models are released in January. In 2019 most new fridges were released in January, with 12 new fridges released that month. The biggest month in 2018 for new fridge releases was March, with 58 new refrigerators released that month. March was also the biggest month in 2017 for new fridges, with 63 new fridges released that month.

How Fast Do Refrigerator Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, fridges drop in price by 6%.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $49 on a typical $864 new refrigerator by waiting 6 months before buying.

Case Designs

The case design shows whether the fridge is freestanding, or designed to be built into fixtures.

Freestanding is the most frequently found case design amongst new fridges. We found 1,132 fridges that are freestanding fridges. The second most popular case design amongst new refrigerators is integrated. We found 781 refrigerators that are integrated fridges.

Fridge Net Capacities

'Fridge Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of the fridge, measured in litres.

The fridge net capacities of fridges range from 12L to 1,400L. The fridge net capacities of the majority of fridges range from 100L to 140L. The Frigidaire FPRU19F8RF, which currently retails for $7,995.00, has the biggest fridge net capacity and is a 526L capacity fridge. The Igenix IG3711BL, which currently retails for $109.34, has the smallest fridge net capacity and is a 47L capacity fridge.

A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the fridge at a time.

Heights

The heights of refrigerators range from 370mm to 2,150mm. The refrigerator with the tallest height is the Gorenje R6192FBK, which is a 1,850mm high refrigerator and is available at $638.54. The refrigerator with the shortest height is the Igenix IG3711BL, which is a 470mm high fridge and is priced at $109.34.

Widths

The widths of fridges range from 260mm to 1,430mm. The Frigidaire FPRU19F8RF, which is available at $7,995.00, has the widest width and is an 812.8mm wide fridge. The Avanti SHP1700W, which can be purchased for $126.46, has the narrowest width and is a 431.8mm wide refrigerator.

Energy Efficiency of Fridges

The Energy Efficiency Class of a fridge shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

We found 845 refrigerators that have an energy efficiency rating of A+, which makes A+ the most frequently found energy efficiency rating amongst new refrigerators. We found 630 refrigerators that have an energy efficiency rating of A++, making A++ the second most common energy efficiency rating amongst new refrigerators.

A fridge with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.
