But counter depth options in different styles are available that could take your kitchen design to the next level!

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

Posted by Bob Allaire on Feb 9, 2021 9:30 AM 

 

Certain specialty applications call for specialty products. Refrigerators are no different: refrigerators with no freezers, also called "all-refrigerators" or "freezerless refrigerators" may come in compact forms to be installed in offices, pool houses, or where a second refrigerator is needed. Others are intended to replace built-in refrigerators for a high-end look. They range from basic to luxurious, 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 here). Frigidaire offers freestanding options that look built in but are a lot cheaper.

  • 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.

  • 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. (We reviewed beverage coolers here.)

If you’re shopping for a new bottom freezer refrigerator model, you might be curious about your options. Bottom freezer refrigerators flip the traditional top-freezer model upside down. You have easy access to the fridge without bending over, and the drawer-style freezer doesn’t require careful management to avoid spilling bags of frozen vegetables all over the floor!

The 6 Best Top Freezer Refrigerator Models for 2021

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Feb 1, 2021 9:00 AM 

 

The top freezer refrigerator is the classic refrigerator style, and it has a lot going for it despite the popularity of bottom freezer and French door models. Top freezer models tend to be narrower, so they work well for small kitchens, and they also tend to be less expensive than comparable bottom freezer or side-by-side models.

For apartments or other homes where space is limited, a top freezer refrigerator can be a great way to maximize your food storage capacity! Researching a new refrigerator can be a daunting process, but this article will help make you an expert on one aspect of the market: the best top freezer refrigerator models of 2021.

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

Posted by Bob Allaire on Feb 1, 2021 8:00 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. Terms like "automatic defrost," "frostless," or "no-frost" all refer to the same technology. Many older style refrigerators and some modern mini refrigerators and freezer-only units require manual defrost.

Frost buildup on the coils in the freezer can impair the unit's ability to keep things cool. It can prevent the door from sealing properly and give your frozen foods an unpleasant "freezer" flavor. Manual defrost freezers need to be cleaned out 1-2 times a year and allowed to sit for 2-3 hours so the frost can melt. This is not a chore that everyone enjoys... or will actually do!
