Integrated fridges

Things to consider when choosing your new integrated fridge

Capacity

Fridge capacity is measured in litres, with 18 litres being the equivalent of one bag of shopping. For example, a 150-litre fridge will give you enough room to store 8 shopping bags. Up to 350 litres is ideal for medium-sized households, holding up to 19 shopping bags of food, and anything above that is suitable for larger households.



Sizes

Most integrated fridges have a width of 55cm, with the exception being a 60cm under-counter model. The most common width and height dimensions are:

  1. (W) 55cm x (H) 88cm
  2. (W) 60cm x (H) 88cm
  3. (W) 55cm x (H) 177cm

However, the following are also available:

  1. (W) 55cm x (H) 102cm
  2. (W) 55cm x (H) 140cm
  3. (W) 55cm x (H) 157cm


Storage

Most models come with special compartments for different food types, like a salad crisper, egg tray, and dairy compartment. Some models also have a special compartment for keeping meat and fish at the perfect temperature, and a few have a wine rack as well.



Extra features

Some integrated fridges come with air-flow technology that circulates air evenly throughout the fridge. An antibacterial lining will reduce odours and prevent the build-up of mould, and super-cool settings rapidly reduce your fridge temperature to cool your food quicker.
