An American fridge freezer is a larger version of your basic fridge freezer. Generally, they can hold double what a fridge freezer can whilst still performing as effectively when storing your fresh foods.
There are 3 types of american fridge freezer. Side-By-Side, French Style and Four Door.
Almost all american fridge freezers use clever frost free technology that prevents frost build-up. Check that your model has frost free technology and never defrost again!
This is a common misconception surrounding American fridge freezers. The common belief is that because they can store more fresh foods and have to provide freezer storage, they will use more energy. However, this is not the case, with many American fridge freezer manufacturers producing low energy usage appliances.
Not all American fridge freezers need to be connected to the water supply. Check that your model has a water/ice dispenser. If it does, check if it is plumbed or non-plumbed. If it is non-plumbed, no need to worry.
Many models of American fridge freezers have a water and ice dispenser system that is non-plumbed. A non-plumbed system will have a water tank inside the unit. Keep this topped up with water and you’re good to go!
