How we picked Refrigerators
Since refrigerators all basically work well (as long as they don’t break), we had simple criteria for our picks in those three popular styles. Here’s what we prioritised:
Sturdy build quality
You use your fridge more than almost anything else in your home, so it’s important to buy something that you’ll be happy to interact with and that can hold up under daily use for about a decade.
We visited several showrooms to get a feel for how well-made our picks (and their competitors) are. Did the drawers pull out smoothly or with a cheap rattle? Did the doors feel hefty or hollow? Were the shelves intuitively laid out? Can the door bins hold gallon-size jugs or just ketchup bottles?
No obvious signs of defects or design flaws
We’d love to guarantee that we’re picking the most reliable fridges, but we don’t have a crystal ball that can tell us how they’ll hold up in three years, five years, or 10 years. What we can do, though, is looking for consistent complaints written in owner reviews about problems that pop up within the first year or so of use.
These include noisy compressors, noisy fans, cooling-system failures, control-board failures, and ice-maker jams.
You can pay more for nicer ice and water dispensers, extra drawers and doors, sleeker finishes and handles, or a built-in touchscreen tablet. They all have their merits (okay, maybe not the tablet).
But we chose to focus on basic models because repair technicians say that they tend to be more reliable (with fewer parts that can break). They also cost hundreds less to do essentially the same job.
That said, we think it’s nice to have some basic conveniences, like an auto-defrosting freezer, adjustable shelves, crisper drawers, and glass or plastic (rather than wire) shelves in the fridge compartment.
The vast majority of fridges have all of those features, and they’re the only ones we seriously considered recommending.
