Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our non profit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

In our testing labs, we give every fridge a thorough workout to find the models that:

  • are best at keeping optimum temperature
  • minimise temperature fluctuations
  • are best at handling changes in ambient temperature
  • are the most energy-efficient, and
  • have the features you need

We also give you good and bad points for each model and the running cost of each fridge over 10 years. And our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

    Whether the fridge has one door or two - two door fridges may be easier to access, and can give clear delineation between fridge and freezer, but you may loose some internal space to the dividing wall.
