Refrigerator Brands – Choosing The Best

When shopping for a refrigerator, it is second nature to shop based on the brand. There are household brands that are already well known and are well built. Because they have been around for a long time, they have already built a wide customer base. However, new brands are emerging and they are built just as well, if not even better. To find the best refrigerator brands, you must compare the features of both new and established refrigerator manufacturers.
When it comes to choosing the best refrigerator brand that will suit the needs of the family, you should take into consideration the different features that each brand has. One of the most important factors to consider is space. When you rate refrigerators, remember the best refrigerator brands have models with lots of space and compartments for storing different types of food. Pay attention to which models have more drawers for food storage because these can really come in handy.
Refrigerator BrandsRemember that the more people there are in the household, the more food storage space you will need. Top rated refrigerator brands will have crisper drawers for produce at the very minimum. Additional drawers may be incorporated into the design for storage of lunch meats and snacks. Many of the best fridge brands have compartments that are designed specifically for water, milk, or soda.
Make sure the refrigerator door is reversible so that you can change it if you ever remodel your kitchen and need the door to open the other way. High end refrigerator brands usually have a sophisticated automatic defrost system with similar features to those belonging to more basic models. You will also find automatic temperature controls that allow vegetables and fruits to stay fresh longer. This comes in handy for families who consume a lot of fresh produce.
The most costly high end refrigerators – from manufacturers such as Sub-Zero and Viking – are very expensive. If you are seeking a premium refrigerator brand such as one of these have to be willing to pay for the privilege. It is worth noting that refrigerator ratings for these more products do not automatically reflect the price, a large part of the price premium ties directly to the status associate with owning one of the top refrigerator brands.
The best refrigerator brands may have refrigerators with a freezer compartment that is larger than the standard size. However, other models may not have a freezer at all, so that you can have more room for foods that need to be refrigerated. In that case, you will need to purchase a separate freezer, but if you are going to store large volumes of food in the freezer, you will want a large freezer anyhow.
Of the best rated refrigerator brands, there are many that have models designed to save electricity. These refrigerators still keep food cool but use less energy to do it. While refrigerators like this will cost more, the savings you will have on electricity will be bigger. Look for the Energy Star logo for refrigerators that meet or exceed established standards for energy conservation.
The refrigerator is one of the most important appliances you need to have in your home. It is worth taking the time to thoroughly investigate before making the decision to buy. Organizations such as ‘consumer reports’ regularly review refrigerators, ratings from these sources are a great source of independent and unbiased information on the reliability and performance of particular brands. Their refrigerator rating system periodically releases lists of recommended ‘best buys’.
Since fridge freezers are so costly, it is important to do maintenance checks to keep them running smoothly for their designed lifetime. If you purchase well chosen top rated refrigerators and take good care of them, there is no reason they cannot last for many years.

Staying Cool with Fridge Thermometers

When it comes to fresh food, health and hygiene are extremely important. Most food contains harmful bacteria which can only be killed off or kept at a stable state by keeping the food chilled. When exposed to warm temperatures bacteria multiply at alarming rates and this can increase the risk of contracting food poisoning and serious illnesses. But simply keeping food in a fridge is not enough the fridge has to be at the correct temperature.

How cold should my fridge be?

The Food Standards Agency recommends that you keep your refrigerator at or below 5C (41F) in order to prevent the bad bacteria growth on fresh foods that can cause serious health issues. However, different foods react differently to warm and cold temperatures. You should always check the packaging for specific information, but this guide should be helpful:

Fruit and vegetables: Keeping fruit and veg in a fridge can extend its life and can also retain its quality. Fruit and veg should be kept in the bottom section of the fridge in a drawer, if available, or just above the raw products. Keeping them at slightly warmer temperatures (about 4-5C) will avoid freezing which can affect the taste.

Meat, Fish and poultry: Meat and fish should be kept below other ready to eat products to prevent the transfer of bacteria from raw food to ready to eat items. As the raw food is going to be cooked, the bacteria will be mostly killed off (chilling just keeps the bacteria at a safe level and prevents it from multiplying), but this is not the case with ready to eat products. 1-4C is the optimum temperature.

Other fresh food: Other fresh food such as milk, yoghurts and cooked meats can be kept on the top shelves of the fridge at temperatures just above freezing to maintain their flavor and quality. These foods will not always need to be cooked before eating, so it is even more important they are kept at safe temperatures.

Nowadays most fridges come with internal temperature controls to ensure that the temperature of your fridge remains constantly cold enough for the volume of food within. However, as with all kitchen appliances, fridges can occasionally becoming defective or faulty, especially if they are overcrowded with food. If you suspect this is the case it is handy to have a fridge thermometer on standby. Similarly, if you are unable to change an old or unreliable fridge (for example where the fridge is part of the inventory on a leased property) a fridge thermometer can monitor whether or not the fridge is working correctly.

Manual Bulb Thermometer for Fridges

Traditional, manual fridge thermometers work by putting small amounts of mercury or alcohol into a glass tube. The liquid expands when it is warm and shrinks when it gets colder. This means the liquid is pushed up or falls down the tube depending on the temperature. There is a scale on the tube, and you to read the temperature based on the height the liquid is at. Although pretty accurate, these thermometers are open to being misread, as you need to be at a height parallel with the thermometer and must round the number up or down depending on the scale.

Manual Spring Loaded Thermometer for Fridges

Spring loaded thermometers work similarly to bulb thermometers, except that it is a metal spring which expands or contracts with varying temperatures. The spring pushes a pointer left or right on a gauge. The scale on the gauge is often larger and easier to read than on a bulb thermometer but still leaves room for human error and requires you to be on the same level as the thermometer to ensure a more accurate reading. Spring thermometers also tend to be less accurate than bulb or digital thermometers.

Digital Thermometers for Fridges

Digital thermometers usually use mechanical devices called thermistors to calculate temperature and are much more accurate than manual, particularly spring loaded, thermometers leaving less room for human error as the numbers are presented in a clear and easy to read format and present a more exact temperature (usually to two decimal places). In order to avoid the thermometer being exposed to colder temperatures, digital thermometers usually sit outside the fridge and have a probe attached which can be placed within the fridge. This makes it easy to move if you think a particular shelf is much colder or warmer, if you need to reposition the contents of the fridge or just to lift the thermometer to eye height to read. The best digital thermometers include alarm systems which can warn you about large rises and falls in temperature that may cause damage to your food.

Fridge Thermometers for Businesses

If you run a business it is even more important that you regularly check the temperature of your fridges and cold areas. This should be done manually and in addition to any automatic chiller alarm systems already in place. Use a digital thermometer for accuracy and check the temperatures several times a day. Always ensure you are complying to company and industry policy regarding temperature checking and are observing regulations regarding other aspects of the cold chain (e.g. ensuring food is not kept out of cold-stores for more than an hour).

When you next buy a new domestic fridge, opt for one with an integrated fridge thermometer and invest in a good quality digital thermometer preferably with an alarm. This will ensure your food lasts as long as possible without causing possible health risks to yourself or your family.

GE Monogram Refrigerators

GE Monogram refrigerators come in three distinctive designs: professional, integrated, and custom. Each of these designs provides a different look to choose from for your home or restaurant kitchen. There are side-by-side models of GE Monogram refrigerators, as well as bottom-freezer refrigerators and all-refrigerators.
The Three Styles of GE Monogram Refrigerators
The professional Monogram appliance line offers refrigerators that are made from premium stainless steel. These refrigerators have hand-finished, chamfered edges that give them a bold and distinctive look. The exteriors are made from 304-grade stainless steel, and the corners are perfectly polished and smoothed rather than being cut.
GE Monogram RefrigeratorsThe integrated line is all about simplicity. A General Electric Monogram refrigerator from the integrated line is designed to be understated yet sophisticated. Like the professional model appliances, the integrated refrigerators are perfectly polished and shaped. These refrigerators have thin, tubular handles that are smooth and comfortable to use.
For a kitchen design that is uniquely yours, choose custom GE Monogram appliances. You can purchase a custom GE Monogram refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher with solid-color panels, or you can choose custom panels with matching decorative handles. Custom GE Monogram appliances give your kitchen an elegant, streamlined look.
GE Monogram Refrigerator Models
You can buy built-in side-by-side Monogram refrigerators in any of the three styles described above. The built-in models range from 21.0 cu. ft. to 30.1 cu. ft. Free-standing side-by-side models are available only in the integrated design, in a 23.2 or 24.6 cu. ft. model. The built-in side-by-side refrigerators are all 84″ tall, and the free-standing models are 72″ tall.
If you prefer a built-in Monogram refrigerator with a bottom freezer, you can choose from two professional models, two integrated models, and four custom models. The professional and integrated models are all 20.6 cu. ft. with dimensions of 84″ high by 36″ wide by 23 7/8″ deep. Each design can be purchased with a door that hinges on the left or on the right. The custom models range from 14.09 to 20.6 cu. ft. There are also two free-standing GE Monogram refrigerators with bottom freezers. Both are in the professional line, with French doors and two freezer drawers. They are 69 5/8″ high by 35 3/4″ wide by 31″ deep and have a capacity of 20.6 cu. ft.
For those who prefer their refrigerator and freezer to be separate, there are six built-in all-refrigerator models to choose from. Each design is available with a door that hinges either on the left or on the right. The freezerless refrigerator models are 84″ tall by 36″ wide by 26 3/4″ deep.
GE Monogram Undercounter Refrigerators
GE Monogram undercounter refrigerators are smaller refrigerators that serve specialized purposes. The wine reserves, beverage centers, and bar refrigerators are all designed to hold drinks. There is also a fresh food refrigerator, a double-drawer undercounter refrigerator, and an indoor/outdoor refrigerator.
GE Monogram Refrigerator Prices
G.E. Monogram refrigerators range in price from around $1800 for the least expensive undercounter model to around $6,000 for the most expensive model. GE Monogram prices may vary depending on which dealer you purchase your refrigerator from.
GE Monogram Refrigerator Tips
I spoke to the good people at Aggressive Appliances (a reputable appliance dealer located in Central Florida) who were kind enough to give me the benefits of their expertise on this particular refrigeration line. I have included their thoughts on these products below:

  • Why should consumers consider the purchase of a GE Monogram Refrigerator?

GE Monogram refrigerators are among the best values in the premium refrigerator category. They are a perfect match to Monogram’s great cooking products as well.

  • Which Models of GE Monogram Refrigerators do you think are the best?

The entire line of built-in refrigerators have proven very functional and reliable. The new fully integrated line adds features and looks great with custom wood panels. One style or size is not necessarily better than another, each customer needs to select the refrigerator that best suits their needs and the available space.

  • What are the best features of GE Monogram products?

GE’s dual refrigeration system means the refrigerator and freezer air never mix. That extends the life of your produce and eliminates the possibility of smells being transferred from one side of the unit to the other. The Climate-control drawer allows a zone that can be set at a different temperature for fast chilling and thawing or precise storage for citrus, produce and meat.

  • Why choose GE Monogram over other fridge freezer brands?

The broad selection of models means you can find what you want and GE’s national repair network means you can expect many years of great service.

  • Do you recommend any accessories or additional features?

Our exploration of General Electric Appliances reveal that Monogram refrigerator reviews state the appliances are generally complete and have only a few available accessories. You can get a Sabbath mode kit and a few installation accessories.

  • What colors and styles are available?

Monogram refrigerators and freezers are available in stainless steel or come ready for your custom wood panels. The stainless steel models can be ordered to match the Monogram Pro-Style appliances or the European Series of appliances. There are 36″ wide freestanding models in both side by side and French door styles. The built-in models are available as all-refrigerator/all- freezer models, side by side or bottom freezer styles in sizes from 30″ wide to 48″ wide.

  • Are GE Monogram refrigerators difficult to maintain?

Changing the ice and water filter and occasionally vacuuming the coils are all you need to do to maintain a Monogram refrigerator.

  • Is there anything you’d like to add?

Aggressive Appliances carries GE Monogram appliances and dozens of other premium and traditional brands. We are Central Florida’s biggest independent appliance dealer and the only local dealer with our own service and installation teams. With seven live demo kitchens, only Aggressive Appliances can actually show you how the appliances work. Check us out at www.aggressiveappliances.com.

Maytag Refrigerator Water Filters – Which To Buy

If you are seeking quality and dependable water filters that will fit in to many refrigerator models, Maytag refrigerator water filters top the list of available products. This company has been providing water filters of the highest quality for many years. They have received positive comments not only from the customers who use these water filters, but also from the manufacturers of refrigerators other than the Maytag Brand.
Some of the popular models that have been well received include the Maytag Refrigerator water filter UKF 7003 and the UKF 8001 models. The Maytag UKF 7003 was previously known by the model number UKF7003AXX. The water filtration system that is used by this model is PUR. This water filter is a perfect fit for many Maytag and Jenn-Air refrigerators.
This particular model has the capability to remove a number of impurities such as Lead, Cysts, Turbidity, Chlorine and particulates. With respect to Cysts, this particular model has the capability to remove up to 99.95% of Cyst impurities. With regard to Chlorine, this model is capable of removing 75.  The UKF7003 AXX has been tested and Certified by NSF according to ANSI standards.
Fridge freezer owners should replace this water filter a new one after using the old one for 6 months. Customers who have been using the UKF 7003 model have given extremely positive feedback regarding the quality of water, the taste of the water dispensed and the ease at which the filter replacement can be done. These water filter reviews suggest it is a good buy for the average homeowner.
Another Maytag water filter that has been receiving positive feedback from users is the Maytag UKF 8001. This water filter is slightly different from the 7003 model in the way the filter is installed in the refrigerator. The filter model 8001 is actually fastened to a trough in the ceiling of the fridge. When replacing the filter, the filter swings down from the refrigerator ceiling.
The Maytag UKF8001 has the capability to remove more impurities than the model 7003. Some of the impurities that are removed by this model include Lead, Mercury, Asbestos, Cysts, Benzene, Lindane, Toxaphene, Chlorine, Turbidity and various particulates.
This model of the refrigerator filter can be used for 6 to 9 months before it should be replaced. This is one of the very few filters that filter most of the impurities that are present in water as well as in other liquids such as Coffee and Tea. This model is also very easy to install and maintain over a longer period of time.

Viking Refrigerator – Prices Reviewed

Buying a Viking refrigerator freezer is a major dream for many homeowners. Unfortunately, when shopping around Viking refrigerator prices are difficult to pin down. In this article, I hope to answer some of the questions the typical buyer has about the cost of Viking fridge freezers.
Viking refrigerator reviews have a tendency to highlight the size of these appliances. This is hardly surprising as some of them are an exceptional 48 inches in width, the type of refrigerator size that is going to support a whole lot of capacity. Let us look at the prices for these units first.
48″ Quiet Cool Side By Side Viking Refrigerators

The high end of the Viking fridge range consists of the professional series. A great example of one of these models is the VISB548SS. This cabinet depth ‘Tru-Flush’ refrigerator is loaded with features, but does not come cheap. You should expect to pay in the neighborhood of $8000 for one of these models.
Fans or colorful appliances have a great option with this particular model, as it can be had in a variety of different finishes apart from the default stainless steel. These range from a pumpkin orange hue to a lemonade yellow; this wide range of color is great for fans of a retro look.
There are many other 48-inch Viking professional models available with an assortment of minor features added. These include the VCSB548D-SS, and the  lineup. These range in price from $8000 to $11000.
The slightly cheaper VISB548X and VCSB548X lack door mounted water and ice dispensers – an oddity for such an expensive cooling appliance – but are an alternative that allows you to purchase for roughly $1000 less. Quite a savings if you can live without that feature.
As well as the Professional models discussed above, Viking also offers some designer options. The Viking Designer DFSB548D, DDSB548X and DDSB548DX lines sell for close to $9000, and they are clearly targeted at the very high-end consumer. Another option is the Designer FDSB548 panel ready model at $7800, but with additional charges for the custom panels.
42″ Built-In Side-by-Side Viking Refrigerators
The VISB542DX (integrated) and VCSB542DX  (built-in) American style refrigerator freezers are great options for kitchens that have insufficient floor space for the massive 48″ models. At 42 inches in width, these units are priced between eight thousand and ten thousand dollars.
They are similarly equipped to the wider models, and also include the custom colors option for those who really want to create a splashy effect in their homes kitchen. Note this option will set buyers back an extra thousand or two, but it is certainly a vibrant feature for those who value that type of thing.
The Viking Designer collection in the 42 inch width range category include the DDSB542DB for just over $8500, the DDSB542X for $7500, and attractive wood finished DFSB542D is priced at eight thousand dollars.
36″ Viking Bottom Freezer Refrigerators
With these slightly smaller refrigerators, Viking gives up on the side-by-side layout and opts for the bottom mount freezer configuration. This is an understandable choice, as things can get tight when side-by-sides are made to narrow.
The top-end Viking refrigerator of this type is the Professional VIBB536LX/VIBB536RX range. These left hinge door/right hinge door swing models are priced at a little over $7000, but judicious shopping will enable you to find priced for a little less than that for the base models.
Note again, is you want the attractive custom colors with brass accent option you will have to pay for it. At an extra $1500 it can push the cost of one of these units up to the eight thousand dollar price point.
The VIB models discussed above are integrated refrigerators. Buyers preferring the built-in look also have access to the VCBB536LX/VCBB536RX range at a similar price point.
For about $7200, the Designer DDBB536 bottom-freezer refrigerator collection is available at this refrigerator size point. Alternatively, the panel ready Viking Designer DFBB536X starts at $6500.
Viking Mainstream Refrigerators
With a price point of $4000, the 36″ Viking Professional VCFF136DSS appears to target wealthy consumers who want the Viking brand but are not willing to pay for their more expensive models.
This particular counter-depth French Door refrigerator is somewhat similar to those produced by more mainstream brands in its feature set, but still offers the status of Viking for buyers who value it. Another option, similarly equipped but without water/ice dispensers in the door, is the VCFF136SS, which sells for a little over $3500.
Also in this category falls the Viking Professional Side by Size fridge freezer, the VCSF136DSS. At $3700 the benefits of this model are debatable. It does not look that much different to a high end Maytag of Whirlpool model, so you pay a lot for the brand name with this particular unit.
36″ Viking All-Refrigerators
When you are looking for a freezerless refrigerator option, this manufacturer has several offerings. First is the built-in VCRB536LX/VCRB536RX selection. Prices for these models range from $6000 to $7000 dollars, depending on the finish chosen.
Again, this refrigerator without freezer lineup is also available with an integrated design for a similar price – these are the VIRB536LX and VIRB536RX models.
A cheaper option in this range is the Viking Professional DFRB536X. While not as feature packed as their more expensive brethren, at a price point of roughly $5000 it is a more affordable Viking freezerless refrigerator option.
30″ Viking All-Refrigerators
Viking does not even bother with combination fridge freezers at this size point. Clearly, they wish to maintain their reputation for spaciousness and not to try to cram too much into too small a footprint.
In a familiar pattern, these are available in both integrated (VCRB530LX/VCRB530RX) and built-in (VIRB530LX) models. While still very expensive, Viking refrigerator pricing for these units is slightly more affordable, with the entry-level unit retailing at just over $6200 – but sometimes being available for less than $6000 with Viking sales or the occasionally available Viking rebate.
At an even lower price, the Viking Professional DFRB530X – comparable to the DFRB536L/DFRB536R, but slightly smaller – also will set buyers back in the general vicinity of five thousand dollars.
Viking Refrigerator Prices
Clearly, Viking refrigerator pricing is relatively high, and thus they are not suitable for every buyer. However, if you value what the brand offers, and have the finances to afford them, they are a great option.
Unlike Sub-Zero, Viking is a little less secretive about their pricing, but they do have strict control of sales. Products must be purchased through an authorized dealer, and dealers serve strictly defined sales areas – for example, you cannot buy from a seller in California is you live in New York. We do not sell Viking refrigerators direct here at www.fridgefreezersite.com.
Similarly to Sub-Zero, however, is the brand premium in the prices Viking charge. This manufacturer has been very successful as positioning themselves as a premium brand in the minds of consumers. When performing major kitchen renovations to take their home ‘up market’ many homeowners consider Viking refrigerators their best choice for improving their home in a manner that also increases the properties resale value.
Viking Refrigerator Parts and Repair
One important thing to keep in mind is that when you purchase a premium refrigerator brand like Viking you really should invest the time and money into properly maintaining it. Have any repairs or maintenance performed by your dealer, rather than having an unaffiliated third party work on your Viking refrigerator.
By doing so you will accomplish a couple of important items; firstly, you will avoid invalidating the warranty, and secondly, you will ensure that any work done is of good quality. Also, be sure to only use – or have the maintenance man use – genuine Viking refrigerator parts. It makes very little sense to go cheap on replacement parts such as water filters.
When buying a premium brand refrigerator, you should be prepared to pay a little extra for authentic parts and quality maintenance work. If you enjoyed this article be sure to visit this page  on Viking appliances for more.
