Time to upgrade your fridge? Here’s what you need to know

July 28, 2021

An essential household appliance, the invention of the fridge revolutionised the kitchen forever.

While we can expect our fridge to last a good few years, there will come a time when you need to upgrade your current appliance. If that time is now, you’ve come to the right place.

Snaffle are proud to offer their customers a wide range of appliance rentals, including a number of top-of-the-line refrigerators. What’s more, we believe that all consumers can benefit from the decision to rent home appliances, which is reflected through our flexible contract options.

Features to look for in a fridge

Fridges of today do far more than simply keeping your food cold. Current models come in all different shapes and sizes and are often equipped with smart technology to keep you connected while you cook.

With that in mind, selecting a fridge is no longer an easy task. When it comes time to upgrade your current model, consider the following features:

  • Capacity: You might think that opting for a smaller fridge is a cost saving measure. In reality, overpacking a small appliance means that it will not be able to function as efficiently, resulting in warm food and high power costs! Weigh up how many people will be storing food in the fridge and do your research to find the perfect sized model.

  • Energy rating: Sustainability is a top concern for all of us, making energy efficiency an important factor in your choice of fridge. Check the energy star rating before making your final decision.

  • Connectivity: Modern day fridges have the ability to connect to the internet, enabling you to check your calendar and order groceries via your fridge door. If being constantly connected is important to you, you may want to consider a smart fridge.

  • Adjustable shelving: This is a given for many fridges but it’s such an important feature that it needs to be at the top of your priority list. Adjustable shelving means that you can customise your fridge to meet your needs, offering increased flexibility.

  • Water dispenser: Nothing beats a cold glass of water on a hot day. Many fridges now come equipped with water and ice dispensers, meaning a refreshing drink is just a click away.
