Fridge - Recommendation

Fridge - Recommendation

Postby sheryl » Wed Nov 24, 2010 2:40 pm

Hi All,
I'm moving to my new house & looking for a fridge. Appreciate your feedback on the below brands for fridge.

Fridge :-
1) Mitsubishi? - Expensive but do not know if it is good or just paying for their advertising.

2) Fisher & paykel

3) Korean brand?

4) Toshiba?

Depends if you got all the spaces in the world. A friend had to buy a fridge of extremely accurate dimensions becos the space alloted was tiny.

For me, another concern will be the electricity usage. Fridge is something that is on 24x7 - electricity costs can go up quite a bit if it's the non-energy saving type.

My parents using panasonic (the 5/6 door type). It's really very handy, and I think quite energy saving.

My parents swear by Toshiba. This is their SECOND Toshiba (the first one lasted 15 years and this one is around 10 years old already).

I bought Samsung for my place. Choose those with 3 or 4 ticks (energy saving), really makes a difference in the utility bill (we compared with our neighbours who are using Mitsubishi fridge & aircon).

My A/C is Panasonic and really saves electricity too. Maybe you can consider Panasonic fridge too?

Hi, definitely fisher & paykel for me. Have been using one for 6 years. Will still be getting fisher & paykel when we shift 2 years later. Get a model that is made in Australia! It is worth paying the extras!

Hi

I have been using Mitsubishi for the past 5yrs, so far ok. Look for those with 4 ticks, etc.

The one that I'm using is very spacious inside and has 2 doors only. Less doors, less hassle when comes to cleaning. :love:

It's definitely Mitsubishi for me.

I once had a Korean boss and he didn't even trust Samsung or LG, so I thnk that speaks volumes. He went for the Jap brands.
