Best Budget American Fridge Freezers Reviewed

In this article we have found what we believe to be the best American style fridge freezers, for anyone on a limited budget. If you have been searching around for these larger style fridges, you will be aware, that these are an expensive purchase.

Typically you can pay anything from £600- £2,000, and that makes them expensive in my book. They do look great though, and come with some really cool features. Typically they are double doors, with a large fridge on one side, and a large freezer on the other.

Almost all of them come with some form of water dispenser, and almost all of them are frost free.

Suiting the American Fridge Freezer to Your Budget

We did some searching around to try and find some budget options. Please don’t think that budget means poor quality, because it doesn’t have to be like that. Essentially I am looking for a bargain buy. That is a good quality product for an affordable price.

Below we have found three budget options, that we think tick all the boxes.

Budget Choice Number One – Fridgemaster MS91518FFB Black Side-by-side American Fridge Freezer

This one gets really good reviews on line, and costs a little over £500. It can hold the equivalent of 28 bags of food shopping. It can produce a lot of ice, and the freezer works really quickly.

You can see this one in the image below. Please note that by clicking on the image, you will be taken to Amazon UK, where you can find out more information.

More importantly than all of that, is that buyers who have bought this budget American fridge freezer really rate it very highly. To date it has a buyer satisfaction rating of 96%, and that is impressive.

It measures  64.3 x 91 x 178.6 cm and has a total capacity of 566 litres.

The fridge also has a constant airflow, and that helps keep the produce inside as fresh as it can be. In the event of a power outage, this fridge freezer will keep your food fresh for 10 hours.

It has a black finish, LED lighting, a twist ice maker, wine bottle rack, touch controls with a open door alarm. I also like the fact that it has a child proof lock, and even a holiday mode setting. At the moment this one seems to be a good budget choice.

Budget Choice Number Two – Haier HRF-628DF6 570L Frost Free American Fridge Freezer

The second one on our list is also the cheapest one that we could find. It costs just a little over £500. It has the contemporary stainless steel look, and that look can suit almost any kitchen.

It may not be the style for everyone, but it is certainly a popular choice for many buyers. Buyers have given this one an overall buyer satisfaction rating of 85%.

You can see this one in the image below. Please note that by clicking on the image, you will be taken to Amazon UK, where you can find out more information.


This one has a slightly higher capacity (570 litres) than the one above, but not a great deal in it. Again like the one above, it is electronically controlled. The freezer section remains frost free and there is good cool air distribution throughout the refrigerator.

The glass shelves have been tempered so as they can hold heavy items. The fridge is also pretty quiet and does not use a lot of energy.

Budget Choice No Three – Hisense Side By Side American Fridge Freezer

This Hisense model is in the same price range as the two above, with an average price point of between £550-£600, depending on where you make your purchase.

This is also the stainless steel look, but it does have the water dispenser showing on the front of the door. Many people like this option as a style feature.

You can see this one in the image below. Please note that by clicking on the image, you will be taken to Amazon UK, where you can find out more information.

This one measures 72.6 x 91.2 x 176.6 cm and has a 615 litre capacity. so plenty of room for food storage. Like the ones above, there is a nice air flow throughout the fridge, and this one is also frost free.

The water dispenser can not be plumbed in, so it will need to be topped up every now and again. This one also has a child lock, an open door alarm and a holiday mode.

In addition to that, there are electronic controls, a twist style ice maker and LED lighting.
