Best American Fridge Freezer Reviews 2019
Freestanding or integrated, there have never been more sizes, features and colours to consider. Don’t be left out in the cold – sit back and chill, while we share our top ten American fridge freezers
Here are the best American Fridge Freezers ranked, in order:
With its stylish, minimal design and elegant stainless steel finish this large – with a standard width of 91.2 cm – yet compact freestanding Samsung model is a real looker. And it’s loaded with so many features that it makes a mockery out of its relatively high yet affordable price tag. In fact, it’s one of the least expensive Samsungs on the market at the moment.
And the Samsung RS50N3513WW/EU American fridge freezer comes with a huge capacity. Totalling approximately 501 litres (that’s around 27 bags of food shopping) it offers plenty of space for most families – there’s enough room and more for everyone’s favourite snacks. It’s actually deceptively large inside due to its innovative thinner walls.
Air circulation is another key feature, meaning your food stays fresher for longer. Ingenious All-Around Cooling evenly circulates cool air inside the fridge, so no more ice-cold veg on the bottom drawer and tasty, yet tepid, treats on the top. Now you can look forward to a constant temperature throughout.
- Stylish minimal design: give your home a modern look with an elegant stainless steel finish and beautiful flat doors
- Less noise and less energy: unlike a conventional compressor, the Digital Inverter Compressor doesn’t stop and start abruptly, so it consumes less energy, and there’s less noise and wear and tear – so it lasts longer
- Frost free: why defrost a freezer? Samsung's Total No Frost feature maintains an even temperature, preventing ice build-up, and saving you the hassle of defrosting
And if you listen closely; no, really closely – you’ll hear nothing at all. Not only is the Samsung effective at keeping food at its best but it’s also quieter than most fridge freezers. Plus it’s big on energy efficiency meaning your utility bills stay small. So if you’re away for the weekend, relax, you won’t be running up any unwanted costs.
On warmer days, nothing beats a thirst-quenching ice cold soft drink. That’s where the water and ice dispenser comes in handy. Or after a long day at the office you can come home to a nice glass of crisp white wine – the secure built-in wine rack offers enough storage for a few of your favourite Chardonnays.
Another bonus is the Samsung’s Total No Frost technology. Like we said, the fridge’s cold air is constantly circulating inside, keeping your groceries at an even temperature – this means there’s no icy build-ups in the corners or down below. So no more time-wasting scraping away unwanted ice and frost.
What’s not to love about a handy water and ice dispenser – perfect for the whole family, especially throughout those warm summer months. And we never mentioned this before but the ice dispenser offers crushed or cubed ice. Nice. The All-Around Cooling system is pretty cool too. In addition to that, there is a Power Freeze function to rapidly lower the temperature in seconds.
Another fab feature is the power failure system – during a power outage, your fridge freezer keeps cool for up to 12 hours. And of course, there’s the attractive price tag – the Samsung RS50N3513WW/EU American fridge freezer has got the lot for less.
Lows? What lows? We don’t really have any complaints with this large, nicely-priced Samsung RS50N3513WW/EU. Well, there may be one niggle that’s not to everyone’s taste. As fantastic as the water and ice dispenser is, it does require plumbing upon installation. This raises the price tag slightly, but hey, it’s no biggie when you consider the model’s affordability. Plus – not really a low – but if you’re looking for an integrated model this freestanding Samsung may not for you.

- Water and ice dispenser (plumbing required)

- Power freeze function

In the previous review I highlighted the spaciousness of the Samsung fridge freezer. Well, this freestanding side-by-side (which resembles a two-door cupboard with one door larger than the other) Russell Hobbs RH90FF176SS-WD is even roomier. While the Samsung held around 27 bags of shopping this beast can accommodate around 29 bags, with its 513 litre capacity. Yet with a standard width of 89.5cm, it’s not as wide.
It’s not as wide but it’s just as sleek, if not more, with its gorgeous stainless steel finish. Another cool feature is its Frost Free technology. In fact, you’ll never have to manually defrost again. With cool air constantly circulating inside, it cleverly prevents any icy build-ups. It’s an excellent energy saver too – annual energy bills cost around £60. Plus it comes in at around £800. Ka-ching!
Unlike the Samsung, this model’s water dispenser doesn’t need plumbing either, so it can take pride of place anywhere in your kitchen for refreshing drinks on tap. Plus there’s an adjustable thermostat giving you the utmost convenience to ensure your food is as fresh as possible.
- Stylish American Style, Side by side Fridge freezer with energy rating A+ (METAL BACK FLAME RETARDANT REAR PANEL)
- Large net fridge capacity 338 Litres, added convenience through 4 door racks, 4 shelves, wine rack for 4 bottles and 2 drawers.
- Large 175L freezer capacity, including 5 door racks, 3 shelves, 2 drawers and an ice maker.
The freezer section is also frost free, so don’t worry about continually opening and closing it. Got uneven floors? The Russell Hobbs fridge freezer will straighten things out with its adjustable feet, so you can ensure your appliance is correctly balanced when installed.
Now let’s talk about a few key numbers. The fridge boasts four door racks, four shelves, a secure wine rack for four bottles and two drawers. The total freezer capacity is 175 litres (fridge is 338 litres). And inside freezer, you get five door racks, three shelves, two drawers and an ice maker.
The chiller compartment, which maintains a low temperature, is pretty cool too. It’s perfect for storing fresh and cooked meat and fish for longer periods. Then there are the sleek, electronic LED lights – ensuring the fridge freezer is brighter (and more durable), plus saves more energy than standard bulbs.
Let’s start with the fantastic price and what you get for around £800 – 513 litres of space, that’s what. And it’s not just the huge interior that’ll impress, but all the additional features too. The chiller compartment is perfect for keeping meats and fish fresher for longer. Also, the fridge freezer’s EcoSystem feature helps to save money on energy bills.
Then there’s the water dispenser feature, which requires no plumbing. Plus the ice dispenser is pretty impressive too. And the features keep coming – the Dual Cooling system, Frost Free technology, and Multi-Flow ingenuity. Not to mention anti-bacterial shelving.
To be honest, there are not too many negatives with this fridge freezer – especially when you consider the price tag. However, some reviewers have stated that the door material could be a bit less flimsy – it can dent quite easily. Then there’s the water tank capacity – you’ll need to keep an eye on it as it requires manual refilling.

Hisense are masters at making cutting-edge technology more affordable. And the Hisense FMN431W20C American fridge freezer is a perfect example. It’s slimline yet holds up to 23 bags of groceries with its vast 431 litre capacity. And this multi-door model has the clever Total No Frost feature I’ve mentioned in previous reviews – cold air is evenly circulated throughout the fridge and freezer, to make sure ice never forms. That means no frosty build-ups and no manual defrosting ever again.
Then there’s the easy to refill, no-plumbing-needed water dispenser – for you to enjoy ice cold water at the touch of a button. The water dispenser on this Hisense American fridge freezer gives you cool water without the need to open the fridge. In fact, a separate tank in the door supplies the water (which you’ll need to fill before use). And Hisense aren’t kidding around with this feature – there’s an additional child lock for added peace of mind.
Now you’ll be able to enjoy refreshing drinks quickly and conveniently, and you won’t need to store bottled water or a separate water jug ever again. Oh, and there’s a handy Twist & Serve Ice Cube Tray too – perfect for parties, as it ingeniously makes ice cubes at the turn of a dial.
- 431 litre capacity – holds around 23 bags of food shopping, so it’s perfect for stocking up on all your family favourites
- Clever tech stops ice build-ups in the fridge and freezer – cool air circles round the cabinets to prevent any ice from forming, so your food is always protected
- Twin Cooling - chilled air circulates to every corner of the fridge, the temperature stays even and protects your food
The Hisense FMN431W20C is not just smart, it’s bright too. Very bright. Thanks to the LED lights, you’ll see the contents of your fridge more clearly. So no more taking food out to check if it’s past its sell-by date. The electronic LED lighting is brighter than standard incandescent bulbs, and they’re more energy efficient too. Saving you even more cash on top of the modestly priced (less than £700) model.
If you’ve always wanted an American style fridge freezer but considered them too expensive this Hisense is a great model to start with. It may be slimline but its large capacity is perfect for a family of four. We recommend reading more reviews on the Hisense FMN431W20C – you’ll be amazed at just how loved it is.
Without sounding repetitive – the price, the price, the price! For less than £700 you get an all singing, all dancing fridge freezer that easily competes with the best of them. And it’s not just its stunning exterior and large interior that’ll impress. An array of fab features such as a no-plumbing-required water dispenser, LED lighting and a Frost Free function meaning you never need to manually defrost again. Yes, this flexible multi-door American fridge freezer’s 431 litre capacity can accommodate a large family and then some. Perfect.
Is it a cop out to say – for the price – that this fridge freezer is faultless? The only negative we could find is more a positive for most buyers – with a width of 79.4cm, it’s very narrow. The only other (tiny) gripe is the spacing between the shelves is not as high as in other models we’ve reviewed.
- Family sized 431 Litre capacity
- Water dispenser – no plumbing required
- Clever technology stops ice build-ups in the fridge & freezer
- Narrow width – 79.4cm
- Frost free freezer – never manually defrost again

Firstly, it’s a bit of a mouthful saying this one, but it’s worth every word. The ‘Leisure Patricia Urquiola PAS241MB American Fridge Freezer’ has been designed by Leisure in collaboration with one of Europe’s leading furniture designers – Patricia Urquiola.
Together, they have created an array of kitchen appliances that offer the very best in performance, innovation and design.
Let’s simply call the fridge freezer ‘the Leisure’ for sake of saving words. The Leisure is a fusion of style and functionality. And with an overall 544 litre capacity (that’s over 30 bags of food shopping. Thirty!) it’s a beast of an appliance. Like most of our other fridge freezers it’s frost free, meaning no more manual defrosting it, as cold air is constantly circulating inside to prevent icy build-ups.
The Leisure offers a standard width of 91cm, which is about the norm. But what makes it a little different is the nifty little minibar door on the front, which gives you easy access to your favourite drinks – perfect for quick access to your favourite tipple, and party nights.
- 544 litre capacity
- A++ energy rating
- Frost free
You want fresher, crisper greens? Then the Salad Crisper Drawer will meet your needs. Actually, the Leisure will meet all of your fridge freezer-type needs. From its ingenious Dual Cooling System to adjustable feet to LED lighting to a secure wine rack and already-plumbed ice and water dispenser – it has everything our other reviewed models have and more. The magnetic doors are pretty smart too – the closing sensation feels a little like the magnetic doors on an expensive car. They feel strong and sturdy, because they are. Better still, it costs less than £900.
OK, we’ve already stated that the Leisure comprises all the features you need and more. The one thing we can’t stress enough though is the vast capacity of this fridge freezer – and this comes up time and time again from individual reviewers. It’s interior (fridge is 368 litres and freezer is 176 litres) is massive. At 544 litres in total it boasts the largest capacity of all fridge freezers we’ve reviewed here.
For an American fridge freezer that’s got the lot and boasts an enormous 544 litre capacity, the Leisure is very modestly priced at under £900. It oozes elegance and sophistication too – thanks to teaming up with Europe’s leading furniture designers, Patricia Urquiola. It’s well lit by the LED lighting and we loved the minibar door and if you’ve a kitchen with a slightly darker colour-scheme you’ll really bring it to life with this stylish yet sturdy jet black appliance.
Once again, finding flaws in some of the best American fridge freezers on the market at the moment is a tough task. So what can we say other than black may not be to everyone’s taste and may be too much of a contrast in a gleaming white kitchen. Also, we’re clutching at straws here, is that the hatch for the minibar needs a little bit of force to open – but then it does feel solid and sturdy.

Ah, the Samsung RFG23UERS1 520L Frost Free American Freestanding Fridge Freezer. Let me sum this absolute top of the range model in one word. WOW. It has everything you need from an elegant, beautifully contoured fridge freezer. And I mean everything. But then, with its £1,500+ price tag, what less would you expect? So does it deserve the extra dosh? Let’s take a closer look…
As you’d expect, it’s got bags of space inside – but forget bags, with a gross capacity of 520 litres you’ll fit close to three full shopping trolleys in this giant. That’s 396 litres of capacity in the fridge and 124 litres in the freezer.
Plus your food stays fresher for longer with the clever Twin Cooling tech – which cools the fridge and freezer cavities separately. Thus ensuring the perfect temperature and humidity throughout. What’s more, the CoolSelect Pantry allows you to choose 0° for fresh meat and fish, 3° for deli-type items like ham, salami, chicken slices and cheese, or a slightly warmer, but well-considered, 5° for fruit and vegetables.
- Energy Efficiency: A+
- Fridge Capacity (Gross): 435 litres
- Energy Consumption (kW-h): 426 kW-h
For this price you’d expect the water and ice dispenser that already be plumbed in – which of course it is. That means cold water and ice at the touch of a button. And it’s no ordinary looking dispenser it’s sleek, stylish and extremely well-designed. So next time you host a dinner party you can impress your guests when you fill up the punch and cocktails with crushed ice. It makes ice cubes too.
Last, but far from least – the shelving. Arrange the shelves to meet your needs – this is something a few of our other fridge freezers lack and if you read some of the reviews, this is a much applauded feature. So Samsung has done it again. All-in-all the Samsung RFG23UERS1 520L Frost Free American Freestanding Fridge Freezer is a real show-stopper and one you’ll be proud to show off to friends, and the family will love it. As do we!
OK, so it’s on the pricier side. But it’s worth it right down the freezer on the bottom – which keeps food well organised. It’s carefully considered contouring makes it look stylish and sophisticated. The water and ice dispensers are easily selected to use and the added bonus of fitting larger glasses and jugs are a real plus. We love the design of this fridge freezer, with all the fridge space at eye level – and again, it’s well lit throughout. It’s also very easy to keep clean and very quiet. Both freezer and fridge compartments complement each other perfectly. What more do you want from an American style fridge that family and friends will look at and simply say, wow.
We’d like to say the price – but honestly this appliance is worth every single penny. While the water dispenser is already plumbed and very easy on the eye, it could do with a slightly larger splash dish, which tends to overspill if you’re not too careful.

Next, I tried the LG GSM760PZXZ Frost Free American Style Refrigerator in LG’s Showroom. This one is also the best American fridge freezer that you can find out there. The best part of this one is that it comes with an affordable yet reasonable price tag. Also, you do not have to touch the premium section, nor you will need to stick with a basic American fridge freezer.
Talking about the American fridge freezer is that it comes with the door in door design. As a result, you get access to essentials. Along with that this one also sports a steel design with easy open handles. Moreover, They come with a stylish stainless steel design along with the easy open handles.

This one comes with the capacity of 675L which is pretty huge and will be sufficient for all your needs. Also, LG GSM760PZXZ is a Frost free fridge freezer. So you won’t get to see icy build-ups.
In addition to that this one comes with some of the most interesting features. Like it has the door alarm, child lock and so on. Along with that, there is a LED display too so you can easily control the temperature. And it has an annual energy consumption of 395kWh which is pretty impressive.
Furthermore, this one is a non plumbed American fridge freezer hat you can find on this list. The main reason behind this is that it has water or ice dispenser. So over here you have to do a bit compromising.
But apart from that, the LG GSM760PZXZ offers you everything that you need. But overall, if we talk about the essential things like the inside storage space. Then, let me mention that it offers you quite a lot of space. As a result, you can fit more and more stuff in there.
Moreover, with this type of fridge freezer, you also get the multi-flow technology and moisture balancer crisper drawer. As a result, you can keep the meat or fish over here to keep them fresh. Also, there is another compartment exist which is separated from the rest of the fridge. You can use this separated compartment to keep things that you use regularly. Like milk, wine or anything.
Also, to access this compartment, you will not need to open the main door of the fridge. You can access it some other way. So what’s the profit? Well, you get to save more energy. This one is a pretty useful feature, and I am sure most of you are going to love this thing.
Now if you ask me The highs: the most about this one, well I would merely say the price. The price is pretty perfect and makes me want to buy it. What’s even attracting my love toward this machine is that it allows me to save money on my electricity bills. As well as it helps me to reduce food wastage.
Along with that, I will be able to fit more stuff in there as it comes with a massive space for keeping almost everything. Plus, the Multiflow and moisture balance technologies will surely help us in quite a lot of ways. Also, with the LED black lights I will be able to get a better view of my stored food. Plus, I am someone who does not like much noise, and the best part is that it only produces 39 Decibels of sound which is pretty quiet.
Moreover, you also get the deodoriser feature which prevents smalls from mixing. As a result, your food and fridge both stay fresh. It also comes with the twist ice maker which is an alternative to the ice dispenser.
This one is a nearly perfect machine, to be honest. However, the thing about this one is that there is no water or ice dispenser. Although, you are getting an alternative to the ice dispenser. But we cannot say the same about this one. But apart from this one, I personally do not have a hell lot of things to mention over here.
- Huge fridge and freezer space.
- Multiflow and moisture balance technologies.
- Digital Display.
- There is no water or ice dispenser.
If you are looking for an affordable American fridge freezer with water dispenser. Then you can go with the Hisense. The thing which I personally liked the most about this one is the price. The price is extremely affordable plus it comes with lots of features. Even there are quite a lot of American fridge freezers are exist which costs more than this one. But they do not have features like water dispenser. But has, so yeah plus points.
Anyway, moving to the specifications of this fridge freezer, well Hisense comes with a Freezer capacity of 192L as well as it has a fridge capacity of 364L. These numbers are not huge though. But if you are an average user and you do not have high needs. These details are enough for your needs. Also, the fridge has an A+ energy rating, and it is frost free. Along with that, you also get a twist ice maker and the dispenser.
However, I would not hesitate to mention that the Hisense is not the best option available out there. But I can give you the surety that it is one of the good American freezers that you can try out. Of course, it has some of the nice features. But it is not certainly the best one.
- 192L Freezer capacity 364L Fridge capacity A+ energy rating Frost free, Twist ice maker Dimensions H 176.6 x W 91.2 x D 72.6 cm)
It obviously comes with all the features that you get to see on the other models. Like it has the dual cooling and multi-flow technology. Along with that you also get a super cool function which helps you to keep your food cold for a longer time. So you can keep them fresh.
It also comes with the super freeze function. This feature helps in freezing your food more quickly compared to any other freezer in the market. Also, the best part of this feature is that it holds the food nutrition and does not allow the food to lose it. As a result, you get to eat healthy eating as well as it makes the food’s taste even better.
Overall, in the end, I would say that this fridge might not be the best one out there. But it has a lot to offer. It comes with a price tag of around £500 which is a brilliant price tag for an American fridge freezer. So yes, if you are in a short budget and looking for an average machine for your home. I would personally suggest you go ahead and try this one.
There are quite a lot of things that I personally love about this American fridge freezer. First of all, the price is pretty brilliant, and all of us wants to go ahead and purchase it. But wait, the price is not the only thing that this Product has to offer.

In addition to that, you get Anti-bacterial shelves and features like Open Door alarm. Even this one is a super quiet machine. As it only produces a sound of 43 decibels which is super quiet too.
Even the most interesting thing that I personally loved about this one is that it is a non plumbed American fridge freezer. As a result, you will not have to bear the additional plumbing cost as well as you can you place the American fridge freezer anywhere in your kitchen.
Of course, the Hisense Side By Side American Fridge Freezer has a lot of great features, and I cannot even deny it. However, despite all the features it lacks a few features, and there are some of the other great options that you can find out there.
Like with this American fridge freezer you will not be getting an ice dispenser. Instead, it only offers you twist ice. It also lacks additional odour prevention. Moreover, there is no moisture balancing technology which is one of the main drawbacks.
- Dual cooling and multi-flow technology.
- Water Dispenser.
- Extremely affordable.
- No moisture balancing technology.
- No ice dispenser.

This helps you to keep your fridge tidy and utilize the space on each shelf. Also provided is a twist ice maker, which helps you to produce more ice quickly and easily.
Talking about The highs:, well there are quite a lot of things that I can put over here. Of course, the first one that I would like to mention is the price. The price falls below the 500 euro mark which we think is the ideal price range for an American fridge freezer. However, with this one, we are going below down that. So overall, it will be a great option for you if you do not have a huge budget.
Secondly, the design of the fridge is quite modern, and it will be an excellent addition to your kitchen, and there is no doubt in that. Moreover, the refrigerator is pretty large and has much space to offer compared to the more expensive options. This one does not only cost an inexpensive price, but it provides you with more space compared to the high-end models.
Also, this one is a non plumbed machine. So you will not require to spend your money on the installation process. Plus, you will be able to place the machine wherever you would like to. It also comes with twist ice dispenser which is an alternative to the ice dispenser. Moreover, I believe that you can compromise on this feature. Along with that, you are also getting the multi-flow technology.
Because of the price, the Fridgemaster MS91518FFB Black Side-by-side American Fridge Freezer has seen a lot of cuts in the features. There are some of the significant features that you do not get to see on this fridge freezer.
First of all, there is no water dispenser or an ice dispenser. So you have to store the water in a bottle and take the bottle out every time you want to drink water. Overall, this one is not a significant issue. But from the user experience point of view, it a con.
Moreover, you also do not get to see some of the other features. Like the fridge freezer lacks a chilling compartment. So you will find a hard time storing fish and meats. Also, it lacks an Anti-bacteria shelving. Also, there is no moisture control. But in the end, if we look at the pricing. All these missing features seem justified.
- Offers you a lot of space.
- Twist ice dispenser.
- No water dispenser.
- No ice dispenser.

Also, the overall look of the fridge is pretty great too, and it will be a nice addition to your home.
What’s more? You are getting water dispenser and ice dispenser out of the box. A feature that most of the high-end fridge freezers are lacking.
There are quite a lot of reasons why I love this one. First of all the Freestanding 90cm wide Red American Style Fridge Freezer comes with an affordable price tag which is pretty low compared to the other models in the market. Like if you are going to buy the same product from a well-known brand, then you have to invest quite a lot of bucks. But on the other hand, this one costs way less than that. Since it is a product from China, so the price is a bit low.
But apart from the pricing what I have loved about this one is that the performance. It offers you great performance that I don’t think you will get from any other product from this price range at least. It has almost all the features that you require. Along with that, you get a spacious area to store your stuff.
Also, the number of different compartments helps you to store your things in a better way. As well as you will be able to manage your fridge in a pretty good way.
When it comes to the negative points, there are not too many things that I can add over here. Like you are getting almost all the features at an affordable price. However, when it comes to the overall quality of the fridge freezer. It is not something really remarkable. Its average and may get dents pretty soon. So you have to be pretty careful with this one.
- Fast Freeze Function
- Fresh Zone Compartment
- Offers quite a lot of space.
- Lacks quality.

Anyway, to make you understand in a better way, let me just talk about the fridge freezer. Well, the Hisense RQ560N4WC1 American Style Fridge Freezer comes with a fridge capacity of about 315 litres. This one is not really a huge number. But it is sufficient in many cases. Especially, if you do not store much stuff in your kitchen. Then this will be a sufficient machine.

Moreover, you also get the LED touch display in the centre of doors. Using this digital display, you will be able to create target temperatures. Or you can simply choose between different modes that it offers you. these modes are the Holiday and Super Cool.
There are a hell lot of things that I love about this model. Right from the pricing to the features. In every category, this one is an outstanding machine. First of all the pricing, it falls under a price tag of 600 euro which is pretty inexpensive for an American fridge freezer. Plus, you get a lot of extra features that you do not even get to see on an 800 to 1000 euro priced fridge freezer. So it’s a good thing.
Moving from the price, well the next thing that I love about this one is the storage capacity. For some 315 litres of capacity may not seem like a huge deal and they want more storage. And it is quite okay too. But that does not mean that you simply go ahead and underestimate this one. This one is capable of storing all your foods too. As well as you will be able to organize them in a nice way. Thanks to the 4 door system. It will be quite easy for you to access your food in a good way.
What’s more? You are getting the water dispenser. Plus, there is no headache of getting done with the plumbing. All you have to do is purchase and place the fridge freezer wherever you want to. It is just that simple. Overall, the design of the machine is also pretty nice, and you are getting great performance.
There are not too many things that I would like to add in this section though. Because there is literally nothing that I can add over here. But yes, with the Hisense RQ560N4WC1 American Style Fridge Freezer you will not be getting the basic salad drawer. Nor there is a bottle rack. Even the fridge freezer lacks an ice dispenser. But again if we talk about the pricing and features, it all seems justified. So I cannot complain much.
- You will be getting the water dispenser. Plus, no plumbing required.
- 315 litres of capacity.
- No basic salad drawer.
- You will not get ice dispenser.
Next, My girlfriend’s family have owned the Samsung RF24FSEDBSR American-Style Fridge Freezer. However, this one is not a cheap fridge freezer. Instead, it falls under the category of premium fridge freezers. But as long as it comes to the overall performance and features, the machine worth every penny.
However, talking about the fridge freezer well the SAMSUNG RF24FSEDBSR American-Style Fridge Freezer comes with a capacity of 510 litres in total which is pretty huge, and it will be sufficient for all your needs. Moreover, you are also getting the water and ice dispenser a feature that is missing in quite a lot of fridge freezers out there. But with this model, you are getting that.
However, you will have to get done with the plumbing. That means you have to decide the location where you will be placing the fridge freezer before even purchasing it. Also, you have to think about the plumbing cost too. But do you know what the good part is? Well, it can produce 4.5 kg’s of ice a day which is pretty impressive.
Moreover, with this fridge, you will also get Vents of cool air that extends your food’s freshness. Along with that, there is a flex zone drawer with 4 temperature zones. This compartment will be pretty perfect for storing meats and fish.
- Child Lock: Y
- Colour: Stainless Steel
- Cooling System: Twin cooling plus
The most interesting part of this one is that it is modern and massive. It comes with an amazing interior which will make your kitchen look even more modern. Also, as the fridge has a massive capacity. As a result, you will be able to store up to 348 litres of food and drink. Also, with this massive space, you will never run out of storage. Like you will always have a room for storing bottles, cakes, salad bowls or anything you wish to.
Also, the fridge freezer comes with a practical two-door design which makes this fridge incredibly user-friendly. As well as it allows you to customize the layout of the fridge. As a result, you will be able to make the fridge more personal.
Overall, I would like to say that the Samsung RF24FSEDBSR American-Style Fridge Freezer is not an inexpensive bet. It costs a hell lot of money, to be honest. But if you have high requirements and looking for an American fridge freezer with large capacity. Then this is the one you should go for.
There are a hell lot of things that I love about this machine. The first thing that will attract all our attention is the stylish stainless steel exterior which will surely enhance the overall look of your kitchen. Moreover, the advantage of a lot of space is another thing that I like about this one. The ample space will be ideal for a large or for a busy family. Also, it offers you the option to customise the refrigerator. As a result, you will be able to decide where you would like to keep what. As a result, you will get to access things pretty quickly.
This one also comes with a better ice maker. And the good part is that the ice maker is cleverly designed. So it can save more space. As well as the capacity of the ice maker is also pretty impressive. So if you often love to drink water with ice or use ice often. Then this feature would be pretty helpful in your case.
There are not too many things that I could over here. But yes the pricing of the fridge freezer seems a bit extra. Of course, the main reason for the price is the name of the company. Since it’s coming from Samsung so the price would be a bit high compared to the other options out there. Also, the second thing that I did not like about this one is that you have to get done with the plumbing in order to make the water and ice dispenser work. But again this is the same case with every fridge out there. So we have to deal with it and spend a few extra bucks to enjoy the feature.
- Elegant design.
- Water and ice dispenser.
- You can customize the fridge the way you want.
- Plumbing required.
- The price seems a bit pricey.
13. Bosch KAI90VI20G

Well, the thing that I did not like about this one is the price. Of course, the price is quite affordable, and there is no doubt in it. However, in the same price range, there are quite a lot of other models which offers you a few more great features compared to this one. But yes, the brand name plays a major role in this. So we cannot complain much.

- Water and Ice Dispenser.
- A capacity of 523 litres.

- A bit pricey.
Things To Consider Before Buying American Fridge Freezer…
They are quite impressive and promising. But the question is should you buy it or not?
Since they are not an inexpensive piece of technology. In fact, they cost quite a lot of bucks. As well as you have to bare the electricity bill too. So the question is, are they really the best option for you?
Well to make it a bit easy for you. Let me mention down a few pros and cons. So you can get a clear idea.
Yes, They are pretty large and bulky in size. So it would be a good idea to go for a fridge freezer which is right for your size. Especially if you have a small kitchen. Else, you will keep running out of space and that would not be something you would want to see.
Also, you do not need to check the overall size of the freezer. But make sure to figure out how much space the back of the fridge freezer will require. Will the fridge tough the ceiling and a few other parts. So it would be a good idea to consider the overall dimension at first and then pick the best.
However, to make it a bit easy for you let me just tell you a couple of points which you must keep in mind while getting a fridge freezer.
The first thing you should consider is the overall width. How much area the fridge will require? And if you have the space to offer or not. Some of the models are quite big and they need a width of 90cm or more.
You also need to consider the depth of the fridge freezer. Usually, they are quite deeper compared to the standard models. Typically 70cm or more. So make sure to consider this factor before you plan to get your new fridge freezer. Else, you have to place it in a different location.
The next thing that you need to consider is height. So make sure you have proper space on the top before you even think about buying. Usually, an American fridge freezer is about 175 to 180cm tall.
The last thing that you need to consider is the warranty. You obviously do not want to face any issues when your fridge freezer gets broken down. If that happens, then you will only have to bear the repairing cost. And within the one or two years if your fridge freezers get damaged. Its nothing but a frustrating thing that can happen to one.
And this is where the warranty comes into play. The warranty helps you to get rid of the damage free of cost. Hence, make sure to go with a machine which offers you one or two years of warranty at least. Even there are quite a lot of manufacturers exist which offers up to 3 years of warranty.
Water and Ice Dispenser
Chilled, filtered water and instant ice are one of the most common features of an American fridge freezer. And the thing about this feature is that to make it work you have to plumb the fridge freezer to your main water supply. And this can affect your location where you would like to place your fridge freezer. Also, it will make the installation process a bit harder.
Moreover, you will also need to change the water filter every six months. Also, to replace a filter you will need to spend around £20 to more than £90 each. However, I would recommend you to check the exact price before getting a fridge freezer.
Even some of the models come with removable water jugs. And the best part is that you can simply fill up the jug from time to time. Plus, there will not be a plumbing cost, as well as you can put the freezer wherever you wish to. But the water limit will be limited and you will have to refill it again and again.
There is no doubt that they cost more than the regular fridge freezers.
Generally, the price varies from brand to brand. If you are going with a not so popular brand, then you will have to pay around £500 to £600 for the basic model. But if you can pay more than £2,000 for an American style fridge freezer, then you will have to jump into the premium category. Overall, most of these fridge freezers fall into the £800 to £1,500 price range.
Also, the prices vary because of the features that you will be getting. If you are going with features like stainless steel finish, digital displays and water and automatic ice dispensers, then you have to pay some of the extra bucks.
If you have looked at all the above products then you have often found ratings like A+ or A++. Well, what do these ratings stand for? These rating simply indicates how energy efficient the fridge freezer is.
If a fridge freezer has a less rating it simply means that it will use less energy. However, on the other hand, if a fridge freezer has high energy ratings. Then it can harm your pocket. So make sure to look at the ratings before you go ahead and purchase a machine.
What type of back does my American fridge freezer have?
All the refrigerators or fridge freezers out there require insulation to keep itself cool. Plus, the insulation is flammable too. So you have to make sure that you are keeping the fridge somewhere where it is away from catching fire. Also, the material which is made for protecting the insulation is made of plastic, metal or aluminium depending on the model you are willing to purchase.
However, I would recommend you not to go with an American fridge freezer which comes with a plastic backing. As it can catch fire pretty quickly and your safety will be at risk. Instead, go with some other material which cannot catch fire. So you can have a safe experience.
Different kind of American Fridge Freezers comes with a different type of features. Some of them come with extra cooling and store features, and some of the models have some other features. However, here are some of the top features which we get to see mostly in all the fridge freezers out there.
- Frost-free freezer: This is one of the most useful features that you must look for. It will help you to save the time which you invest in scraping away the ice.
- Fast-freeze function: By having this feature you will simply boost fresh-food freezing times. So whenever you defrost your food they will be fresher.
- Extra storage features: The best part of the American fridge freezer is that it offers you extra storage option and extra compartments. Like you get chiller drawers where you can keep meat and fish. Also, this drawer is a bit extra cold which helps you to keep the meat fresh.
- Adjustable shelves: This is also one of the interesting features that you may look for. Using this feature you will be able to arrange the space the way you wish to.
- Bottle rack: Bottle rack is also one of the useful features. This will help you to store your bottles safely. Plus, you will not have to mess up the fridge at all.
Which one should I pay more for?
It completely depends on your budget that brand you prefer to go with. However, at some of the point, you may find also some premium features which will make your life easier. Like automatic ice dispenser, a stainless steel finish and so on. These features are obviously pretty helpful in making your life a bit more easier. However, if you are wondering about which features you should pay extra, then let me just point out them:
- Separate thermostats: These allow you to create more accurate fridge and freezer temperatures.
- Independent cooling systems: You may also look for an independent cooling system. Some of the refrigerators come with a separate fridge and freezing cooling circuits. This helps the fridge to keep the moisture in the fridge. As well as minimize food dehydration which is pretty helpful for food with high water.
- Digital display: Digital display is one of the most interesting features. From setting the thermostat to programming functions such as fast-freeze. A digital display helps you a lot.
- Water dispenser: No matter if you select a plumbed or refillable American fridge freezer. A water dispenser is pretty helpful and offers you chilled water on your demand. So you will not have to open the fridge door to get drinking water. Instead, you can get it without opening the fridge.
- Ice maker: Ice maker comes with the water dispensers only. And it can help you to get cubes of crushed ice. Even you will also find manual ice makers in the freezer section. First, you have to fill the removable tray with water after that when the ice is ready you have to twist the dial to get it.
- Air Flow Cooling: Air flow cooling is also one of the best technologies that you can choose. It helps you to maintain an even temperature from top to bottom with the help of multiple vents. As a result, it will help you to restore the fridge temperature back to normal very quickly even after the door has been opened.
When it comes to the fridge freezers, there are way too many options are available. Like you can choose a standard model which has its fridge next to the freezer. And it is perfect for traditional kitchens. Or you can go for multi-door appliances which come with full-width shelves. So you can store large food items.
Even, the design is also one of the important element for a modern kitchen. And the good part is that nowadays most of the fridge freezers come in different colours and different shades which will surely make your kitchen look even more awesome.
So that was all about the best American fridge freezer. As you can see there are quite a lot of different options are available in the different price range. So now it is up to you. Simply check all the products that we have listed above and figure out the one that suits your needs.
Also, before getting any of the of these products make sure you are checking out the extended warranty too. As they are pretty helpful in case if anything goes wrong with the fridge freezer. Anyway, if you have any more questions to ask. Then do feel free to comment below and I will surely help you out with whatever query you have.
Most Frequently Asked Questions by Buyers
What to look for when buying an American Fridge Freezer?
Let’s start by saying looks aren’t everything – it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Clichéd but true – especially when considering an American Fridge Freezer. However, luckily for you, all 13 of our reviewed options look fantastic with their sleek, stylish finishes. So let’s look at what’s important (and what’s not) on the inside.
First thing to consider is space – generally determined by the size of your family (or love for a full fridge). Also, is the spacing between the shelves sufficient? The first Hisense model may not have as roomy shelves but the price is perfect. All of our models are frost free and offer circulated cool air to help food stay fresher for longer.
Which American Fridge Freezer brand is best?
How long is a piece of string? In other words, it all comes down to taste, looks and size of fridge freezer you’re looking for. But if it came to the crunch, and money was no object we’d recommend a Samsung. Not that there’s anything a Samsung can do that the others can’t. It just happens to be our personal favourite.
Out of the models we’ve reviewed there’s just something a little extra with a Samsung. It’s the cherry on the top. However, if you’re looking for something with bells and whistles but without the pricier price tag we’d have to a Hisense is the sensible choice.
How is an American Fridge Freezer different than other Fridge Freezers?
As we all know, America does ‘big’ better than anyone else. And it likes to brag about it too. But we’ll have to give you this one America – your quality of freezers are among the best. Aside from there being loads to choose from, there are a number of elements that make them uniquely ‘American’.
Like we said, they’re generally larger, with more capacity and compartments; they include ice makers and water dispensers (often integrated into the doors); and bottom drawers. But what makes them distinctly American is the double door feature. Two doors rather than one that open from the middle, similar to a wardrobe.
My family is small. Should I Buy American Fridge Freezer?
American Fridge Freezers come in all shapes and sizes. And you’ll find one to fit your budget, whatever your size of family. Of the appliances we’ve reviewed, the four-doored Hisense is one of the smallest, yet it offers more or less all of the features the other models do. In some respects it’s perfect for small or large families.
With the smallest interior capacity – 431 litres (or around 23 bags of groceries) – it’s by no means tiny. No American Fridge Freezers are. It offers the smallest width too – 79.4cm – ideal for smaller kitchens. And best of all is the price – we’ve said less than £700; you may even find one around the £600 mark. Who says bigger is better?
What are the factors that can affect cooling in American Fridge Freezer?
We’ve reviewed our pick of the bunch when choosing an American Fridge Freezer. Let us firstly stress that should (for any reason) your appliance not work the way it should you’ll be covered by the model’s warranty. That said, there are some factors to look out for that’ll affect the cooling of your appliance.
A common problem could be the fan motor overheating, thus cool air will not be circulating. Perhaps it’s the condenser fan – if that motor stops working, it could be the result of a failure with the defrost system, and thus block air flow. But like we say, the warranty should cover you (at least in the early days).
What is the benefit of purchasing an American Fridge Freezer?
If you like your fridge freezers big, while looking sleek and stylish we strongly recommend looking at an American Fridge Freezer – particularly those we’ve reviewed here. Of course, it doesn’t need to be an American-style appliance that offers bags of room a beautiful finish.
However, ALL American Fridge Freezers, particularly our recommendations, offer the latest in technology. From fast-chill settings to frost-free as standard – you can expect a cutting-edge appliance which will eventually cut the costs of running it. After all, energy efficiency is just one reason to make a choice you’ll never regret.

But there’s little point in forking out for extra features – such as a wine rack, if you’re not really going to use it. So review our top buys and go with your gut. But above all – will it work for you aesthetically?
How long should an American style fridge freezer last?
Around 15 years. We’d love to say your American style fridge freezer will last a lifetime, but that simply isn’t true. It may do, if you use it infrequently – but we all use a fridge freezer on a daily basis. And if you treat your appliance to regular maintenance and servicing, it’s sure to last longer.
Also, some parts of the appliance will last longer than other parts. So like we said, have it regularly checked out and update those features that may stop working before those sturdier, more reliable features. However long it lasts, we’re sure that you enjoy every minute of it.
