Much like the name suggests, a side by side fridge is made up of two compartments: a fridge and freezer that sit side by side. Often the fridge compartment is larger than the freezer, but some side by side fridges can offer compartments which share an equal amount of space. Read more…

        Pros and cons of buying a side by side fridge

        grey side by side fridge with black water filter

        Pros

        • Suitable for households with many people (around 5+)
        • The large amount of space means you can store items at the top - no bending and crouching to access freezer or fridge items
        • Side by side fridges offer more freezer space than other types of fridges

        Cons

        • Side by side fridges are not convertible like other fridges.
        • Will not fit in compact spaces, such as an apartment kitchen, as it needs to a sufficient amount of space to open up both doors

        How do side by side fridges compare to other fridges?

        As mentioned above, unlike other types of fridges, such as French door fridges, side by side fridges, are not convertible. For example, if your French door fridge doesn't offer enough fridge space, you can convert freezer space into fridge space (and vice versa).

        A side by side fridge is a good compromise between a top mount and bottom mount fridge. If choosing between having easy eye-line access to fridge or freezer has been a point of contention, because you use both your fridge and freezer equally, the convenient thing about a side by side fridge is that you get the best of both worlds.

        How much does a side by side fridge cost?

        Side by side fridges come with a steep upfront cost - expect to spend around anywhere between $1,700 and $4,000.

        In addition to a high upfront cost, side by side fridges also come with high running costs to keep everything working and running smoothly.

        Side by side fridges are larger than other types of fridges, which means that they often have to work harder to cool air, resulting in higher energy consumption and a louder operation (due to the internal fridge fan).

        Extra features that will make life easier

        Side by fridges are often decked out with similar extras that you’ll find in other types of fridges, however, the width of the fridge means more features can fit onto the outside of the fridge.

        For example, it’s common to find useful extras such as a water and ice dispenser, and display screens on a side by side fridge.

        Some side by side boasts ‘smart’ capacities, such as connecting to Wi-Fi to show what’s in the fridge if you’re out doing a spontaneous grocery shop, or providing online recipes - no more standing in front of the fridge, scratching your head, confused what to cook.

        Conclusion

        Side by side fridges are useful for households containing many people, thanks to their ability to provide ample space, with a total capacity that starts at a minimum of at least 555L.
