American Fridge Freezers
American fridge freezers have plenty of storage space for food and drinks. They tend to be larger and larger than UK models which makes them a great option for kitchens that are open.
Ice and water dispensers are offered in a variety of models, ensuring that you always have a refreshing beverage on the go. The models that are plumbed in connect directly to the mains supply of water and ice, whereas the models that aren’t plumbed have an integrated tank that you can easily replenish.
A large American fridge freezer is an impressive piece of equipment. It’s typically wider than a typical freestanding american fridge freezer model (up to 85cm in average) and with two cupboard-sized doors, these freezers can offer you a huge 390 litres of room – enough for 20 supermarket carrier bags worth of shopping!
They also come with numerous other features to keep your food fresh and chilled for longer. Look out for advanced air circulation that ensures consistent temperature, automatic defrost technology and doors-mounted water and Ice dispensers.

Remember that these fridge freezers can be quite heavy, so be mindful when you measure up and don’t forget to consider the size of your front doorway as well as the doors inside. Getting one delivered to your home can be difficult and you should ensure that you can fit it in the space you’re looking for before you buy. If you’re worried about accessibility, some models have the mini bar door that folds down to allow easy access, but does not let cold air escape. This feature is found on a few of our less expensive brands, like Hisense, Haier and Hotpoint.
In contrast to the tall, upright fridge freezers that most of us are used to, American-style models come with two doors that swing from the centre outwards. They’re sometimes referred to as side-by-side fridge freezers in the UK however some American-style fridge freezers feature the fridge above and an open freezer drawer below (these are usually referred to as French door models).
In addition to their size, refrigerator freezers usually have useful features. You should look for features like the water and ice dispenser mounted on the door, that keeps your drinks cool and hydrated without taking up valuable kitchen counter space. Additionally, you should look for an energy efficiency rating. The new system that took effect in 2021 will make it harder to find a fridge with an A+++ rating. However, if you’re looking for a great starting point, look at the C-E range.
