  • Fridges and freezers that keep food fresh longer

    We all know that fresh food is great, but many of us are shying away from it because it won’t go the distance we need it to.

    For those of you who are tired of wasting the last of the fruit and veg because it has turned before you get to it, or feel you are unable to shop frequently enough to keep on top of fresh food, fear not - there are solutions!

    From buying fresh foods with a longer shelf life specifically, to upgrading to appliances designed to help you get the most out of your shop, with a little bit of domestic smarts you can easily incorporate fresh food to your lifestyle.

    A selection of modern refrigerators


    5 Refrigerators designed to make your food last longer

    All of the following freestanding fridge-freezers come with special features which give attention to lengthening the life of your fresh food, that is fruit and veg, and meat and fish!


    1. Bosch KGN39VWEAG

    The Bosch KGN39VWEAG is an impressive 2 meters tall, meaning it can store an even more impressive amount of food! Of course, that means though, you either have to be going through it quickly, or the refrigerator has to be set up to keep it all for a while.

    Well, it is!

    This fridge-freezer:

    • Has a power failure storage which keeps your food safe for up to 16 hours if something happens when you’re not around.
    • Never frosts up, so you always have maximum freezer space to keep more food for longer
    • Works with two separate cooling circuits to prevent gases moving from the fridge to the freezer. And if you’ve read our blog about foods with longer shelf lives, you’ll know that keeping centre foods away from moisture and odours will lengthen their lifespan.
    • Is built with two Vita Fresh drawers designed to keep meat and fish at 0 degrees; the perfect temperature to lock in nutrients and vitamins. This style of storage lengthens the life of your meat and fish, as well as holds the taste.

    Key features:

    • Gross capacity of Fridge (279Litres) and Freezer (87 Litres)
    • Frost Free
    • Multi Airflow System - Even air distribution
    • Chrome wine rack
    • LED - soft lighting
    • 5 Year warranty parts and Labour

    Siemens ‘Low Frost’, means you need to defrost less frequently and the temperature control feature on this appliance means you can adjust the temperature to optimise care for the items you like to store the most.

    Additionally, it features a Siemens ‘Hyperfresh’ crisper drawer underneath its four standard shelves (one of which can be switched for chrome bottle holder) – yes, it’s big!

    Summary of features:

    5. Blomberg knd4554vi

    Blomberg has equipped the KND4554VI with a range of features to help you get the most out of your shopping in line with your habits.

    Just like Beko's Harvestfresh, Blomberg's VitaminCare+, simulates the cycle of the sun, retaining more essential nutrients and vitamins in fruit and vegetables. 

    This model also includes Dual Cooling which means the appliance uses two fans and evaporators to maintain ideal humidity in the fridge and a dry, frost free freezer so that you can keep both chilled and frozen items at their optimised temperature for longest life span.

    Additionally a door alarm will sound should you accidentally leave the fridge door open exposing your produce to warmth, and you’ll get 13 hours of storage in case of a power failure.

    It's got it all!

    Summary of key features:

    • VitaminCare+ harnesses the power of nature inside your fridge.
    • Dual cooling system
    • Internal Metal backwall helps to retain the cold temperature
