Pros and Cons of buying a top mount fridge

top mount fridge

Pros

Compact and convenient fridge, suitable for a household of around 1 to 4 people
Slim design means it can fit into the fridge cavities of a variety of kitchens

Cons

Smaller freezer capacities than other fridges, such as side by side fridges.

Will a top mount fridge suit my kitchen?

Design

Top mount fridges are designed with a narrow build, allowing them to fit in most fridge cavities. Unlike a side by side fridge, you don’t need a vast amount of kitchen space to accommodate this fridge, nor does it require a significant amount of space to allow the fridge door to open up.

Measurements/Sizing

To ensure that your fridge will fit in your kitchen, it’s important to measure the area and allow an extra 25mm around the top, back and sides for heat to escape. Also, your fridge needs to open on the correct side for your kitchen layout. A reversible door hinge will allow you to open the fridge door from either side (left to right or vise versa).

Style/Aesthetics

Top mount fridges are available in a wide range of designs and features to suit various kitchen decors, ranging from subtle and sleek colours such as white and grey, to bright and colourful retro designs by Smeg.

How much does a top mount fridge cost?

Top mount fridges are the cheapest type of fridge available; you can find this type of fridge for as a low as around $400.

However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that all top mount fridges are affordable. For more advanced top mount fridges, which offer an array of advanced features, such as ‘smart’ capacities, and display panels that let you alter the temperature with the tap of a finger, you might be looking at a price range closer to up to $6,000.

Extra features to look out for

  • Top mount fridge with a water dispenser: for making cool and refreshing drinks on hot summer days
  • Smart fridge: top mount smart fridges boast more advanced features than the basic top mount fridge, such as auto temperature control, and a technologically advanced vegetable and fruit crisper compartment
  • Frost free: reduces the amount of mildew and odours in the freezer compartment

Conclusion

Overall, top mount fridges are affordable, with a convenient and simple design. It’s no surprise that this type of fridge is arguably the most popular type of fridge available, and can be found in many different kitchens.
