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.

March was the biggest month in 2018 for new refrigerators, with 58 new refrigerators released that month. In 2017 most new fridges were released in March as well, with 71 new fridges released that month.

New refrigerators drop in price by an average of 7% in the first 6 months after they were first released.

A typical new fridge costs on average $804. By waiting 6 months before buying you could save on average $55.

Case Designs

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

We found 1,094 fridges that are freestanding refrigerators, which makes this the most frequently found case design amongst new fridges. Integrated is the second most common case design amongst new fridges. We found 70 fridges that are integrated fridges.

Fridge Net Capacities

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

Comparing all refrigerators, the fridge net capacities range from 12L to 1,400L. The fridge net capacities of most fridges range from 100L to 140L. The fridge with the biggest fridge net capacity is the Monogram ZIPP360NHSS, which is a 1,400L capacity refrigerator and sells for $7,000.00. The Igenix IG3711BL, which sells for $99.66, has the smallest fridge net capacity and is a 47L capacity refrigerator.

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

Heights

Comparing all refrigerators, the heights range from 370mm to 2,150mm. The Monogram ZIPP360NHSS, which is priced at $7,000.00, has the tallest height and is a 2,133mm high fridge. The refrigerator with the shortest height is the Igenix IG3711BL, which is a 470mm high refrigerator and is on sale for $99.66.

Widths

Comparing all refrigerators, the widths range from 260mm to 1,430mm. The Monogram ZIPP360NHSS, which currently retails for $7,000.00, has the widest width and is a 914mm wide refrigerator. The Avanti SHP1700W, which is priced at $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.

Amongst new fridges, the most common energy efficiency rating is A+. We found 805 fridges that have an energy efficiency rating of A+. The second most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new fridges is A++. We found 597 fridges that have an energy efficiency rating of A++.

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.

Which Are the Cheapest Retailers for Refrigerators?

The chart below helps you decide which retailer is normally cheapest for buying fridges. For each retailer it shows the total number of fridges where they currently have a market leading price.
