Manufacturers of Refrigerators are currently in an economic crunch. But the good new there is that tough times for them mean bargain prices for you.
Refrigerators in general have come a long way in a very short while. The features have become more impressive, the efficiency has greatly increased, and the prices (more or less) have been moving steadily downward.
In fact, features such as spill-proof shelves, ice-makers and 'gallon jug door storage' that were once relegated to only high end models can be found in even the lower end top freezer models.
Depending on your budget, you might just find you can afford a much better model than you first thought. Take the time to shop around both online (using resources such as this site) and by going into the stores.
You'll see there is a marketable difference in quality from brand to brand and model to model. This is a major kitchen appliance and can be a scary purchase for most consumers and one you typically only make about once every ten years, so you want to be sure the model you choose is the best one for you.
Brands of Refrigerators
Your first question might be to try to figure out which is the best brand? This is tougher to answer than you think, because even though there are a HUGE number of brands out there, there are really only a handful of manufacturers.
In fact Whirlpool is probably the LARGEST of the manufacturers, making units for everyone from Amana to Kenmore to Maytag. So, what it really comes down to is choosing a price range you're comfortable with and a model that has the features and styling that you desire and best suits your needs
That said, here's a list of some of the more Popular Brands. If you notice a brand missing from this list, please CONTACT US and we'll try to include it.
