Currently we have 1218 refrigerators in our database, and that number is always growing. With FridgeDimensions.com’s charts we hope to help illustrate the breakdown of various metrics that can be used to judge refrigerators. Today we will be looking at the number and relative ratios of each of the refrigerator sizes that we have in our database.
The main categories of refrigerator sizes are Full (Standard), Counter-Depth, Mid Sized, Compact, and Mini Fridges. There are no hard and fast rules about how to differentiate between these sizes, so we generally just go by what the manufacturer markets the product as. This means there will be a few that slip into the wrong category, but by and large this refrigerator sizes pie chart is an accurate visualization of the relative number of different sizes of refrigerators on the market today.
Analysis of Refrigerator Sizes Chart
As you can see, Full sized fridges make up the majority of the offerings by major brands. Compact and Counter-Depth refrigerators are close to each other at #2 and #3. Mid sized fridges come in at #4, and Mini fridges aren’t very well represented at all.
This is somewhat misleading though. We focus on major brands, and mostly for the North American market. We do have some brands from the UK and Europe, and a few from Asia, but they make up a relatively small portion of the refrigerators we’ve reviewed here so far. (We will keep working until we’ve covered them all though!)
North American refrigerator lines tend to be bigger than they are in other markets. Also, major brands tend to focus more on expensive larger models than on smaller ones. If you look at Mini and Compact fridges, they often are cheap no-name brands that have simply re-badged some mass produced model.
We will update this chart from time to time to help keep it as accurate as we can while we work to add even more refrigerators to the growing list of those covered here at FridgeDimensions.com!
