2013 is almost halfway over, and so we thought it’d be good to do a quick review of some of the best reviews we’ve post here on FridgeDimensions this year.
We start out with our “Best Refrigerators of 2013″ list, which isn’t a review in and of itself, but outlines a bunch of reviews and lists we have done, and are planning to do throughout the year. This series has been getting updated a lot recently but there is still a lot of work to be done to finish it out!
2013′s Top Refrigerators
Next we have a review of Kenmore’s 70312 french door refrigerator. This review got a lot of attention at the end of last year, but it seems this model of refrigerator isn’t as popular anymore. It’s still a great refrigerator that earned 4.62 stars in our review.
Gorgeous and Efficient
Here we have one of the lists that are part of our “Best of 2013″ series of reviews. This one focuses on the most efficient side-by-side refrigerators you can buy today.
Best in Efficiency
Another review we have of Kenmore refrigerators is for the 70312, a close relative of the 70313. The only real difference between the two is the model number, price, and finish. Both are excellent refrigerators. As is their sibling, the black 70319.
We also did a list on the most efficient french door refrigerators on the market in 2013. These are some of our favorite refrigerators, and actually are more efficient than the top or bottom freezers from major brands. (Some specialty brands produce some very efficient top freezer or freezerless refrigerators, like Sun Frost. But they aren’t options for most kitchens.)
Best in Efficiency
One of the more interesting refrigerators that’s come to market in 2013 is the GE CFE29TSDSS. The hot water dispenser on this fridge is a first for a major brand. If I was buying a top of the line fridge this year, it would probably be this one. (Sadly, the budget won’t allow for it. Maybe next year … )
Hot Fridge for 2013
A short review that we still need to flesh out more. This is just a list of the top 3 most efficient “all refrigerator” models on the market today. “All refrigerators” are those which don’t have a freezer, and are often called “freezerless” or can be referred to as a fresh food column. Not surprisingly, not having a freezer helps them to be rather efficient.
Best in Efficiency
The LG LFX28991ST may be the best overall refrigerator on the market today. It made an appearance on the list of most efficient french door refrigerators, and actually took the top prize there. The best part about it is that to grab the title LG didn’t have to skimp or charge an arm and a leg. The price is rather mid-range for stainless french door models, while the fridge is loaded with features. Well done LG!
Here we have a different style of review, which looks at how to incorporate the Sub Zero 736TCI into various styles of kitchen decor. There’s some good information about the fridge itself, such as the price (which Sub Zero tends to be “hush hush” about … ) Mostly though, this a review of overall kitchen planning, and as such is a great resource for those who are looking to update their appliances.
One of the most surprising things about refrigerators in 2013 (at least to me) is how bottom freezer refrigerators are becoming more and more stylish. In some cases they now can look just as good as the better french door refrigerators. Here we ranked the currently available bottom freezer refrigerators by how they look. Certainly a subjective subject, but I think Emily picked a great crop of beautiful refrigerators.
Great Designs 2013
Even more surprising than the bottom freezer refrigerators, the mainstay top freezer configuration is getting a facelift too. No longer are they just relegated to bland, dime-a-dozen looks. Here’s some of our favorite top freezer models available in 2013.
Top Freezers 2013
Here is another review of a Sub Zero model. In this case, it’s the PRO 48, which is actually two models. The 648PRO and 648PROG. The difference is the “G” model has a glass door. Emily covers some beautiful and elegant kitchens which utilize these models to create a stunning effect. Certainly a must read (or at least, must look at) for those who are in the market for a top of the line refrigerator, or even just planning a remodel of their kitchen.
