Refrigerator Ratings

Helping You Find The Best Rated Refrigerator

Refrigerator Ratings are an extremely reliable way of determining which refrigerator to buy without actually having to see it in person.

Before making a final choice on your new refrigerator, you'll want to consider these 4 things:

  1. 1. What your is budget?

  2. 2. What type of model best fits your family?

  3. 3. What type of styling best matches your existing decor?

  4. 4. What features you most desire?

The answers to all of these questions will help to clarify what type of refrigerator you want but you may still feel fairly lost as to which model to choose.

Our Five Star Refrigerator Ratings system is simply a measure to help you filter out the good from the bad. You can quickly scan the ratings to learn which model is best for you.

The Refrigerator Pro Rating System

Our five star point system works like this: Five out of five is a perfect score, whereas those models that have three or less OVERALL stars are usually models we would avoid.

Some of the highest refrigerator ratings are the newly popular Side by Side and French Door refrigerators. Some of the brands that consistently score well are GE, Amana, and LG. Not surprisingly Amana has some of the highest rated refrigerator models in both overall value and quality .

The 5 Most Important Ratings Areas

In our testing process, the five areas that we consider the most important are as follows:

  1. Durability: You want a refrigerator that will stand up to every day use as well as the test of time.

  2. Style: It's not as crucial as some of the other factors when shopping for a fridge, but you'd like to know that the manufacturer at least took a bit of time in making their product attractive.

  3. Ease of Cleaning: There's nothing more annoying than a refrigerator that's hard to clean because of poor design. This category grades refrigerators on how easy it is not only to clean the exterior of the fridge, but how easy it is to access spills when they happen or how to avoid them in the first place by using Smart Design.

  4. Functionality: How functional does your refrigerator have to be? You want the features that the manufacturers add to actually solve a problem, not create one. Features like ice makers and water dispensers are great, but at what cost? Most not only cost a lot to run, but sometimes take up excessive amounts of your storage space for your food which is why you bought the refrigerator in the first place, right? So, the rating for functionality takes all of this into consideration.

  5. Overall: It's good to know how it all comes together. A Five Star Rating like this:

    tells you this is a fridge worth considering.

Taking all of this into consideration, this site is dedicated to providing you with a comprehensive list of our best rated refrigerators. Our ratings come from a combination of our own in house testing as well as a compilation of data that we have gathered from consumer reviews, manufacturer awards, dealers and other sources. It's this combination that gives you the most accurate assessment of whether or not a particular refrigerator model is right for you.

Remember, from size, to color, to capacity to style, there are numerous aspects that you need to take into consideration before making your final choice.
