There have been so many advances in appliance technology over the last ten years, it’s amazing to see what is available to consumers. The only downside of these advances is trying to wrap your head around them when you’re trying to buy an appliance. As Pros, our job is to help you understand what you’re buying and why you should buy it. We work hard to understand the appliances we sell, so that your appliances work for you and your lifestyle. This is why not every appliance is created equal; lifestyle, habits, kitchen size and family size are all things that contribute to finding the perfect appliance for your home. Today we’re exploring family friendly refrigerators for exactly this reason. Not all refrigerators are created equal and not all refrigerators will suit the needs of a family. So let’s take a look!
First on our list is the Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ This is what we call the ultimate in family refrigerators. Though it may look like a standard French-door refrigerator, this Whirlpool has you covered in all the right places and some you may not have even thought about.
The Whirlpool WRF555SDFZ is a wide French-door which is great because it saves on energy, especially if you have hungry teenagers constantly digging around your fridge every hour. Opening and closing the fridge can burn energy, so French-doors are great for this reason since you only have to open half of the fridge if you know what you’re looking to eat. It’s also fingerprint resistant, which is a huge plus if you’ve ever owned non-fingerprint resistant appliances before.
It has spill-proof shelving inside, which is a dream feature for families with clumsy little hands around. The two-tiered shelving in the freezer creates easier access to frozen items, so pizza pops and chicken wings don’t get lost in the bottom for years at a time. In addition, the water dispenser on the front allows for fresh, filtered water without hassle.
The Samsung Family Hub is a pretty awesome fridge. It really has been designed with family life in mind. The 21.5” touchscreen acts as the Family Hub and has awesome features that make life much easier and better organized. The hub allows you to make digital grocery lists that you can access from your phone. Even better, if you’re at work and can’t remember if you have milk, there are internal cameras which allow you to peer inside your fridge and see what’s there. Pretty cool, right? It also houses over 20,000 recipes which are based on your personal food preferences. The hub also allows you to store and share family calendars for easy organization and features speakers so you can play your favourite music while you cook.
The Samsung Family Hub also features a fingerprint resistant finish, easy to adjust customizable temperature gauge and a sleek counter depth design.
The LG Instaview Refrigerator is another pretty cool advancement in technology that changes the way you use your fridge. This Super Capacity refrigerator allows you to store even more food than ever before. The Slim Space Plus ice system, that can produce round craft ice, is built in a way that also reduces internal space being taken up, allowing for larger door bins and more shelf space.
The Instaview door-in-door features ‘let’s you raid your fridge, without losing your cool’. Simply knock twice on the glass to have the tint fade and view everything inside the easy access compartment without having to open the door. Store items you use the more in the easy access area, so you’re not constantly losing the cool air in the fridge. This is perfect for a large, busy family who wants to cut down on their energy bills.
The fridge also features more basic design options like fingerprint resistant finish, three cooling technologies and the ThinQ App analyzes your habit to anticipate ice needs along with temperature and energy adjustments.
Hopefully these three refrigerators offer you and your family some flexible options. It’s not always easy to know what’s out there, what’s current and what your family needs. We always recommend doing research, viewing options and coming into the store to test things out where possible. Think about what your family’s habits are, how you use your fridge and what your space looks like. These answers will help narrow down any uncertainties and ensure you pick the right fridge for your life.
