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.
