What type of refrigeration do I need?
Fridge freezers are the most popular as they save a lot of space. To cater to those extra storage needs, we also stock individual fridges and freezers that can sit neatly under the counter, hidden behind a cabinet door
What capacity is best?
You can choose the capacity you need based on your food preferences
- A 50/50 fridge to freezer split or 70/30
- A larger capacity fridge if you prefer fresh food, or
- A larger capacity freezer to store food longer- ideal for larger families
What should I look for when buying refrigeration?
- As refrigeration tends to be permanently in use during the life of the product, energy rating should play a large part in your decision to buy, check the individual product description for this
- There are also really useful product features such as auto defrost and frost free which prevent icy build ups, meaning the capacity will remain at its maximum and the product will perform at its most efficient
How about delivery?

What do I need to know about fitting & connection?
The following guide shows how the appliances should be fitted in the kitchen;
All gas appliances must be fitted, by law, by Gas Safe registered engineers.
You can find you local engineer at www.gassaferegister.co.uk
We recommend that all hobs, hoods and ovens are fitted by a fully qualified electrician.
How do I measure energy efficiency?
Performance is measured on a scale from A+++ (more efficient) to D (less efficient)
Siting refrigeration next to hobs or ovens will reduce the efficiency of both and cost more to run
The top shelf is the warmest part of the fridge and best for yogurt, cheese and sauces. Store cooked meat and leftovers in sealed containers on the shelves underneath and raw meat, fish and poultry in sealed packaging on the bottom shelf
Store eggs pointed end down for them to last longer
You should always store cooked food above uncooked food in your fridge
If you've space, storing milk on the middle shelves will keep longer than in the door rack, where it's warmed by hot air whenever the door is opened
Lettuce wilts quickly if it's dehydrated. Keep salad leaves in a loosely wrapped perforated plastic bag to lock in moisture. Either supermarket packaging or punch some holes in a plastic bag yourself
You should always remove wilted lettuce leaves as soon as you notice them otherwise they'll transfer bacteria that will decompose fresh leaves
Store your carton of double cream upside down in your fridge – it'll last longer that way
Placing an orange stuffed with cloves in your fridge will keep it smelling good
If you use a paper towel to apply a thin layer of glycerine to the inside of your freezer after you've defrosted it, the ice will be easier to remove the next time you defrost
Wiping the inside of your fridge with a solution of bi-carbonate of soda in cold water after cleaning it out will make your fridge smell just like new
Tying a sock around the end of a stick or broom handle is a great way of cleaning beneath your fridge/freezer
