The Frigidaire Refrigerator

Frigidaire Appliances: An Affordable, Luxurious Choice

The Frigidaire Refrigerator Company was originally founded as the Guardian Frigerator Company in 1916 in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. It was Frigidaire that developed the first self-contained refrigerator in 1916. It wasn't until 1918 when a founder of General Motors personally invested in the company when it adopted the name Frigidaire.

After close to 60 years, Frigidaire was acquired by White Consolidated Industries which also owned Westinghouse appliances. Then in 1986 it was acquired by Electrolux.

The Frigidaire name has become synonymous with quality made appliances that stand the test of time. They are truly one of the innovators in home refrigeration.

In fact a number of the "antique" refrigerators are Frigidaires. Some people have called the frigidaire the "57 Chevy of the Refrigerator World" because of it's classic styling and unquestionable durability.

Frigidaire comes in Side by Side Refrigerators and Top Freezer models (Freezer is mounted on top of the refrigerator). They range in price from about $700 all the way up to just over $2,000.00.

We think that Frigidaire does a remarkable job of catering their Side by Side refrigerators toward the consumer who wishes to have that "built in look". Be sure that if you are considering this option that you look for a Counter Depth Refrigerator (and NOT one that is Standard Depth). Most Counter Depth Refrigerators come ready to have separate panels attached to their face which will allow you to match the look to your particular decor.

Our 5 Favorite Frigidaire Features

As one of the first in the refrigeration business, Frigidaire truly understands the importance of quality features. Some of our favorite features unique to the Frigidaire brand and available on many of their refrigerator models include:

  1. The EasyCare Genuine Stainless Steel: Along with the color coordinated stainless trim handles, the models that have the EasyCare Genuine Stainless Steel have been coated to help minimize fingerprints and other smudges which can be a common cosmetic issue with other brands.

  2. Sliding SmartFit SpillSafe Shelves: With front mounted cranks, you can adjust the raise or lower the SpillSafe Glass Shelves with ease allowing you to make room as necessary.

  3. PureAir Air Filtration: You no longer have to deal with the box of baking soda when you have the PureAir Air Filtration unit in your fridge. It helps keep your Frigidaire Refrigerator smelling fresh and clean with a replaceable charcoal and baking soda air filter.

  4. Transition Lighting: The Transition Lighting reads the exterior ambient light and allows your eyes to adjust to the interior light rather than it blinding you while gathering that midnight snack.

  5. Tile-Out Wire Door Shelves: These shelves will help keep that box of frozen spinach from flying out the door whenever you open your freezer. They have a wire face that flips down allowing you to safely store a number of taller and wider items in the door.

Frigidaire Means Energy Efficient

With the emphasis on global warming, you'll be pleased to know that many of the Frigidaire models are Energy Star Certified. Which means that they run on 15% less energy than allowed by Federal Standards.

In this time of environmental concern, we always recommend you consider the Energy Star models over those models that might consume more energy. The money you save in energy savings and potential utility rebates might even help you pay for the fridge in the first place!
