Tall fridges (or upright fridges as they are also known) are exactly what you would expect them to be. As they are taller than under counter models they can fit in much more food, which makes them perfect for medium to large families.
This page will help to guide you through some of the questions that you will need to be thinking about when buying your new fridge.
The exact size of fridge you buy will depend on the space you have in your kitchen. Whichever type of fridge you’re looking for it’s important to get the dimensions right.
Fridges are commonly between 500mm (50cm) and 600mm (60cm) wide, but always check individual product measurements to make sure that it will fit where you need it to.
All upright refrigerators on our website have the dimensions (H) x (W) x (D) displayed with them. These measurements refer to the overall exterior of the appliance. The height is how tall the appliance is, the width is the measurement from side to side, and the depth is the measurement from front to back.
Freestanding or Integrated?
Freestanding fridges are the most widely available models and they have the benefit that you can put them just about anywhere in your kitchen.
If you don’t want large white appliances on view in your home, integrated (also known as built-in) models sit behind cupboard doors and blend in with your kitchen units, giving it a seamless look. Integrated tall freezers are also referred to as in column freezers.
Please be aware that these models will not fit underneath a counter top.
Tall fridges offer large capacities allowing you to store over 200 litres of food. Ideal for families who like to stock up on food for the week.
Every fridge is designed to make the most of the available space by splitting the unit into handy compartments, so there is a place for everything from bottles to eggs and butter. The following features ensure that all of your produce is secure and protected and you can always find what you are looking for:
Anti-spill shelves - safe, toughened glass shelves with lipped edges retain spills and prevent them from running onto food stored below.
Dairy compartment - keeps dairy items fresh and untainted by other smells. For example cheese can absorb flavours and odours from other food, so keeping it separate can prevent this.
Salad drawer - allows air to circulate under the chilled produce, keeping it fresh and crisp for longer.
Cooler/chiller compartment - a special compartment with temperature and humidity kept at very low levels, creating perfect storage conditions for perishables like meat and fish.
Ice box compartment - a small, high-performance freezer compartment perfect for keeping small amounts of frozen foods perfect for their entire recommended storage life.
