04.Best fridge brand
And the winner is... Fisher & Paykel
We felt it was time to recognise that, when it comes to fridges, Fisher & Paykel consistently delivers a good product.
This award was based on the past two years of CHOICE fridge testing across many brands and models. It is a combination of the average overall score of the tested models, ratio of recommended to tested models and results from our annual reliability survey – which had almost 7000 respondents this year.

Our test results account for a range of expectations that members have when buying a fridge, including maintaining steady temperatures, keeping those even throughout compartments, offering a good range of temperature options and having optimum temperatures on their recommended or factory setting.
You also expect fridges to stay cool in summer and winter, be inexpensive to run and quiet. Many Fisher & Paykel models tick all these boxes and so deserve the bouquet.
