Refrigerator Buying Advice

A refrigerator is an electric powered cooling appliance comprising a thermally insulated compartment and a mechanism to remove heat from it to the external environment, cooling the contents to a temperature below a designated degree. A refrigerator uses the evaporation of a liquid to absorb heat. To create a freezing temperature inside the refrigerator, the liquid which is called refrigerant is evaporated at an extremely low temperature. In 1834, Sir Jacob Perkins built the first commercial practical refrigerating machine. Followed by that, the first home refrigerator was produced in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 1911 by General Electric Company. However, mass production of modern refrigerators only becomes very vigorous after World War Two. Today, refrigerator nearly becomes one of the most frequently used appliances in all the kitchens around US.

On the current electric device market, there is a great chance that you can find a wide range of refrigerators available. There are the modest and inexpensive models with a basic design and few extra features and expensive super-deluxe models with a wide assortment of convenience and performance features.

Refrigerator manufacturers would try all means to increase the chilling capabilities of their refrigerators and freezers which bring to the installation of special areas or compartments to "quick cool or freeze" items in some refrigerators which make it possible to chill or freeze the things you want in a short time. Some refrigerators are equipped with a special bin in the freezer, the temperature inside which can be adjusted from 10 to 3 centigrade below zero as you wish. This bin is suitable for storing meat which will be used soon. Some refrigerators have an assortment of compartments designed to hold different kinds of products. Basic models might have one or two crispers and perhaps a dairy locker on the door. Very top end refrigerators often have two crispers with adjustable humidity level, as well as a snack drawer or temperature-controlled meat locker. In the freezer, the well-equipped fridge might have a slide out storage bin to provide easy access to items stored at its inner part. If you buy large bottles of beverage frequently, a refrigerator with gallon-size door storage can meet your needs. By locating the oversized bins on the door, this machine can also save more space in the refrigerator's main compartment. A few refrigerator manufacturers offer oversize door shelves with built-up fronts to keep tall containers from toppling over when the door opens.

Buying Tips:
Refrigerators vary greatly in price, size and performance, so when choosing a new refrigerator for your home, you should first consider your budget and family needs. The second thing you need to do is to check the manufacturer's energy efficiency ratings, as well as the noise level emanating from the refrigerator's motor. You still need to bear in mind the space available in your kitchen when selecting refrigerators. Then you need to pay attention to the cooling and freezing section proportion. Think about that do you freeze things more often or do you store things more often. If the space is large enough, you can get a two door refrigerator which would provide more ease and convenience for you when using it.
