Need A Refrigerator With No Freezer? - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 22, 2019 11:30:00 AM

 

Certain specialty applications call for specialty products. Refrigerators are no different: refrigerators with no freezers, also called "all-refrigerators" or "freezerless refrigerators" are often installed in offices, pool houses, or where a second refrigerator is needed. They range from basic to high-end, mini to full-size, and there are a lot of options. Here are a few types of all-refrigerators:

  • Twin Refrigerators or Column Refrigerators: A high-end type of refrigerator with no freezer, usually with a built-in look. They feature a single door and can be paired with a matching column freezer for a custom side by side look, or separated for convenience in a high-end kitchen. They may be panel-ready, built-in, or integrated (read more about built in and integrated refrigerators in our article).

  • Freestanding All Refrigerators: These models are useful for apartments, dorm rooms, offices, and other settings. They can be compact at 11 cubic feet or less, or up to 19 cubic feet or so for full-size models.

  • Beverage Centers/Wine Coolers: These refrigerators are specifically designed for storing beer, soda, wine, and other beverages. They're a great addition to any home bar! They usually have clear glass doors and can be freestanding or built-in models that can be installed under counters.

Should You Buy a Bottom Freezer Refrigerator? - Features, Pricing, Pros & Cons

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 22, 2019 11:00:00 AM

 

If your previous refrigerator was a top freezer refrigerator or the once-popular side by side style, you might be wondering about whether it's time to try a bottom freezer refrigerator. These models have been around for a while and have distinct advantages over top freezer and side by side styles: first, you don't have to bend over to access the fresh food section; and second, the refrigerator and freezer offer wide spaces for flexible storage. (Before we continue: check out our refrigerator buying guide for more info on choosing a new refrigerator!)

The main types of bottom freezer refrigerators are:

  • Traditional bottom freezer refrigerator with single refrigerator door, usually with a drawer-style freezer

  • French door refrigerator with two refrigerator doors and a bottom freezer

A less common type of bottom freezer splits both sections with four doors with a cupboard-style freezer rather than a pull-out freezer drawer.  Cheaper bottom freezer refrigerator models may offer a cupboard-style freezer that really looks like you turned a top freezer refrigerator upside down, but the majority of bottom freezer models come with a drawer-style freezer.

Should You Buy a French Door Refrigerator? - Features, Pricing, Pros & Cons

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 22, 2019 10:30:00 AM

 

If you are considering a refrigerator with French doors, you are about to make a great choice!  The popularity of this style has exploded and most consumers love them! When searching for a new refrigerator, you'll probably want to consider all of your style options. In the past, you may have had the old standby refrigerator with the refrigerator on the bottom and freezer above or the once popular side by side. We've compared French doors vs side by sides, but for most people the French door refrigerator offers the best elements of the bottom freezer and side by side refrigerator styles. (Check out our refrigerator buying guide for more info on choosing a new refrigerator!)

French door refrigerators have taken the market by storm and they are especially popular in new home packages and kitchen remodels. Even the most basic models have a lot of nice premium features. They consist of a bottom mount freezer that pulls out like a drawer and two refrigerator doors up top. There have been a lot of cool innovations within this category that we'll address further later on!

GE Top Load Washers - What's Changing for 2019

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Apr 15, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

GE Appliances is one of the largest appliance brands in the US and was founded over 100 years ago. Their innovations include inventing the over-the-range microwave in 1978 and the first "smart" dishwasher that used sensors to gauge how dirty your dishes were in 1995. They may not be the first brand people think of when they need washers and dryers, but GE has a small but solid selection of top load and front load washers and dryers. 

If you're considering a new GE top load washing machine for 2019, you might be interested to know about GE's model revamp taking place this spring. There are two reasons why this knowledge is valuable: if you want to save money, you may be able to snatch the older model for a lower price; and if you want to avoid discontinued models to ensure you can easily find replacement parts or get the latest and greatest features, you may prefer the newer model. Let's dig into what GE is changing about its top load washer lineup!

Should You Buy a Refrigerator with an Ice and Water Dispenser?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 9, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

Researching a new refrigerator can be an easy process if you know the right questions to ask. One important question to consider is whether or not you want a refrigerator with ice and water dispenser capabilities.  If you like the added convenience of having fresh ice, often cubed or crushed as well as filtered water close at hand in your refrigerator, you'll want to consider models with an ice and water dispenser. Believe it or not, some new models even come equipped with a Keurig attachment to allow your refrigerator to brew and dispense coffee for you!

We'll go over the pros and cons of having these dispensers in your new refrigerator. For more info on choosing a new fridge, check out our refrigerator buying guide, too!

Should You Buy a Frost Free Freezer? - Pros & Cons vs Manual Defrost

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 9, 2019 8:00:00 AM

 

If you are shopping for a new refrigerator, you may be wondering what a frost free refrigerator is. "Frost free" is a term that has been used in the refrigerator industry for decades. Many older style refrigerators and some modern mini refrigerators and freezer-only units require manual defrost. In these non frost free models, frost periodically builds up in the freezer over the coils and it needs to be manually defrosted. This can be inconvenient as you have to remove all of the food from the freezer in order to do this.

Weber's best-selling grills have a lot going for them, but one feature you might not know about is the iGrill. There are several versions of the iGrill: the iGrill Mini, the iGrill 2, and the iGrill 3. The first two are compatible with any Weber grill, while the iGrill 3 is compatible with Genesis II, Genesis II LX, and Spirit II gas grills as of this writing.

You might be thinking: "I'm not a serious griller, so the iGrill probably isn't for me." You're wrong - but in a good way! The Weber iGrill is great for beginners as well as for hardcore grill enthusiasts. We'll explain why below!

Quietest Dishwasher - Top 10 Quietest Models

Posted by Todd Buehler on Apr 7, 2019 10:00:00 AM

 

If it sounds like your dishwasher is getting louder by the day or not performing like it used to, chances are that it's reaching the manufacturer's life expectancy. Over time the motor, pump assembly, and disposer blade wear with use, causing vibration that translates to louder operation. Buzzing, humming and chattering noises are common as dishwashers get older. Even if they're working fine, be aware that product life is limited. Look at this as an early warning! With your dishwasher now holding up the surrender flag, it may be time to shop for a quieter and more efficient model.
