American and French-style fridge freezers are great if you have a spacious kitchen and a large family. We’ve selected the best you can buy to help you decide on the one for you.
The term American-style generally refers to a double-width fridge-freezer with two doors, while a French-style fridge freezer is laid out a little like a wardrobe, with a pair of upper doors and two or three large freezer drawers beneath.
Both variations are sometimes referred to as double fridge freezers, and often include bonus extras like an ice machine and a water cooler. These machines most commonly use an internal water tank that you’ll need to refill every now and again, but some require a mains water supply, which means you’ll need to plumb the unit in.
All the fridge freezers in this round-up have been put through their paces by our dedicated testing team. We monitor the temperature in multiple areas of each section of the fridge freezers, and even go as far as tracking total power usage and noise levels, too. Of course, we also cram in lots of food to make sure each machine is up the job of keeping a veritable feast nice and fresh.
