Electrolux Fridge Background

The storied firm Electrolux produces all sort of household appliances under a variety of brand names, these include – Electrolux, AEG-Electrolux, Frigidaire and Eureka. In particular, when it comes to refrigeration, they bring us the Frigidaire and AEG Electrolux fridge freezer lines.
When it comes to cooling, there are several basic model types of Electrolux refrigerators available. I will briefly visit the various model types here, you will there are is plenty of choice for those interested in Electrolux Fridge Freezers.
Side By Side Refrigerators
The Electrolux side-by-side model line consists of a freezer on the left, and a fridge on the right. Each compartment has a separate door. The freezer door has a built in filtered water and ice dispenser. Electrolux lists an MSRP of between $2200 and $3100 USD for their side-by-side model line. Note, in some parts of the world this style of fridge is referred to as an ‘American Fridge‘ or ‘American Style Fridge Freezer‘.
French Door Refrigerators
A French door fridge is what you get when you cross a side-by-side fridge freezer with a bottom-freezer refrigerator. You have two doors into the refrigerator, and a separate freezer with its own door below. Behind the freezer door you will find individual freezer drawers that slide out to allow for ease of storage and access within the freezer. The MSRP’s on the Electrolux range of French door fridge freezers varies from $2700 all the way up to $3700.
Beverage Center
The Electrolux fridge freezer range also includes a stainless steel ‘Beverage Center’, with an MSRP of $1700 dollars. While they call it a beverage center, to the rest of us it is really a bar fridge. This particular mini-bar refrigerator is not short of features and it definitely more upscale than many of its competitors. The unit has a built in Air Filter to keep the air clean. As a display fridge, it is a refrigerator with a glass door. This particular door incorporates UV protection into the glass to protect the contents from sunlight.
Refrigerator Drawers
This is something you may not have encountered before. The Electrolux Stainless Steel ‘Refrigerator Drawers’ appliance can best be described as a set of metallic refrigerated dressers. At $2200 MSRP is it difficult to think of an application that justifies this expense. Even their Bar Fridge is more reasonably priced. Still, if you have a high end home if could perhaps find a home in an entertainment room for storage of refrigerated snacks.
Under Counter Ice Maker
The $2000 Electrolux Ice Maker looks like another Appliance looking for an application. It is able to produce 60lbs of ice in a day. Honestly, if I needed more ice in a day than my regular fridge freezer is able to produce; I would run to the store and buy a few bags. Still, they do offer this appliance, so there must be consumers willing to buy it somewhere.
As you can see, when it comes to high end fridges and fridge-freezers, there is a large selection of Electrolux fridge models to choose from. They continually innovate when it comes to designing new refrigerators – take a look at the Infinity I-kitchen to see some of their current design ideas.

Display Fridge Types And Uses

A display fridge is a refrigerator created in such a way that the contents of the fridge can be seen from the outside without needing to open a door. Display refrigerators are most commonly used by businesses, rather than households. A well-lit, thoughtfully stocked retail display fridge or freezer can provide great several benefits for merchants.
By having the contents of deli fridges visible, a retailer can in effect advertise the product they are selling. There are several common uses and types of display fridges used by businesses today.
Supermarket Deli Section – Display Cases
Visit any supermarket and you will see display fridges galore. Usually near the produce section you will see long refrigerated display cases containing freshly made sandwiches, precooked foods, birthday cakes and other similar products. By placing these items in a display fridge, the store keeps the items safely chilled while still allowing the potential customers to view – and possibly be enticed – by them.
Supermarket Frozen Section – Glass Door Freezer
In the frozen aisles of the supermarket you will see another form of display fridge, the glass door freezer. These units are very tall, and can be lined up next to each other to fill an entire aisle. When the customer walks down the aisle they see frozen vegetables, frozen pizzas, microwave dinners, ice-cream and much more – every grocery item that comes frozen is cleverly displayed to encourage purchase.
Convenience Store – Glass Door Fridge
This type of convenience store aims for a different type of sale than a supermarket. For example, you will find glass door refrigerators in a gas station with an overwhelming choice of beverages chilled and ready for consumption. When a potential buyer walks in the door from their car, there is a good chance they will select a cold soda or juice from the broad selection of merchandise. A glass door refrigerator is similar to a glass door freezer, but simply chills instead of freezing.
Convenience Store – Chest Display Freezer
Another form of display fridge commonly found in a convenience store is the deep chest freezer with a sliding glass door on top, as opposed to the normal door that lifts. These are commonly placed near the door of a store, so when customers walk by they will see an enticing selection of ice-cream bars and popsicles. This is a very effective marketing ploy to generate spontaneous purchases.
As discussed, display refrigerators have the potential to create greater revenue for all types of retailers. For convenience stores in particular they play a large role in increasing the amount of impulse buys made. While display fridge prices can be substantial, the appropriate selection of an attractive display freezer or display refrigerator can be a valuable addition to your retail store.
