Tips to Find the Best Refrigerator For Your Needs

If these links weren't able to help you then one way to narrow down your choices amongst the plethora of available refrigerator models, we need to first consider three factors:

  1. Budget:
    How much can you really afford? It's one thing to WANT a beautiful new refrigerator, but what is your exact budget? You'll want to know this number BEFORE you go to the store (or shop online) so that you don't get suckered in to buying something that's well outside of your price range because the salesman convinced you that you could "afford" the monthly payments.

    • TIP:Buying a fridge on CREDIT can end up costing you a lot more in the long run than if purchasing it outright. Remember this when the sales person tries to sell you a more expensive fridge than you can afford.

  2. Space:
    Two things to consider:

    • What type of EXTERNAL space do you have available within your kitchen (making sure to take into account the radius of the door swing when it's open)
    • How much INTERNAL STORAGE SPACE you actually plan to use?

    There's no point in buying a refrigerator that either doesn't fit in your kitchen, or won't adequately suit your refrigeration needs.

  3. Features:
    Do you need an ice-maker? Do you need an external water dispenser? What about a vacuum-sealed vegetable crisper? The best refrigerators have these types of features and more and you'll want to narrow down which of these features are must-haves for you BEFORE you start shopping for your particular unit.

    Remember, high end features also usually come with a high end price-point. We suggest narrowing your selection down to only those refrigerator models that have the features you need rather than being lulled in by a fancy external LED Control Panel that not only controls the internal temperature and icemaker, it also accesses the internet (especially if you don't really need it.)

The Best Refrigerators Aren't Always From Refrigerator Brands You Know

There are almost FIFTY different refrigerator brands just in the United States alone. Worldwide, there are probably 100 or MORE. Needless to say, there are a lot of choices to have to sift through, so how do you know which refrigerator brand has the best refrigerators?

You can start identifying which brands are top in consumer's eyes by reading refrigerator reviews. However, you need to keep in mind that just because there aren't any GOOD customer reviews or any reviews at all on your particular model, that doesn't mean that it's not a refrigerator model worth considering.

When it comes to Refrigerator Reviews the most popular refrigerator brands will often have the most reviews. And, people are 10x more likely to COMPLAIN about something than to PRAISE something.

So, just because you read 10 negative reviews on a particular refrigerator model doesn't necessarily mean that it's a lemon.

How Else to Determine the Best Refrigerator Models

So, if refrigerator reviews don't tell you everything you need to know, how else can you determine best available refrigerator models?

  • Look beyond CONSUMER reviews, and look at CONSUMER TESTING reviews such as many of the reviews on this site as well as sites like They will often look PAST the negative comments of a consumer, and try to make their assessments SOLELY upon their own observations and field testing procedures.

    For example, in many of our reviews, we have tried to also include data gathered from local refrigerator repairmen (and women). If there are a number of similar comments (such as the ice-maker breaks down, or the condenser runs hot, etc.), we will add such commentary into our reviews since these people see these units every day and know which ones are prone to fail.

  • You may also want to make sure that the refrigerator model you're considering hasn't been a part of a Refrigerator Recall.

    We try to stay abreast of any recalls that we know of, but it's always good to do a Google or Bing search to see if there's updated information that we may be unaware of.

    Keep in mind that recall information is ESPECIALLY important if you're buying a used unit. Some unscrupulous people have been known to sell a recalled refrigerators without fixing the problem that prompted the manufacturer to issue a recall in the first place.
