So I need your help finding a new
To cut a tedious story short, we bought a new stand alone fridge and stand alone freezer and sadly have had hassles with both. Defy have agreed to reimburse us fully. We don’t want to replace them with the same make as every person we have spoken to says not to buy Defy for a myriad of different reasons.
Despite all of this, I really like that Defy have a bigger load capacity on both the fridge and freezer and I can still get units in white plus the fridge allows for many different shelf heights which all the other brands don’t seem to offer when comparing the proverbial apples with apples.
Problems is – what to get now! The reason I want to get two separate units and not a side-by-side unit is mainly due to the odd shape of our scullery – I know we might not be in this house forever but we are here now. If the door leading to the garage is open, the one unit is behind the door and all side-by-side units have the fridge on the right-hand side which would mean the fridge would be behind the door and that’s not very practical as I am in and out of the fridge all day and the freezer at the most once a day. Side-by-side units also have a much smaller freezer to fridge ratio which doesn’t suit our needs.
I have started looking at other brands but it is quite a daunting task.
In hindsight, the stand alone units have narrow shelves and I don’t really like the French door style combo as the freezer portion is like a chest freezer so I am starting to think buying 2 fridge freezer combos where the fridge portion is at the top and the freezer portion at the bottom is a better way to go or is it? The freezer sections of these are also quite small. Urgh! This was meant to be fun.
Oh and we don’t need ice and water dispensers – they take up too much valuable packing space or is that just me plus these type of units cost considerably more.
What do you have? How does it pack? Is it user friendly? Would you buy the same again? Hypothetically speaking you are in the market for a new fridge and or freezer, what would you buy?
I really would appreciate your opinions and help. 🙂
