Keep­ing it cool

The re­frig­er­a­tor (or fridge) has come a long way from be­ing a lux­ury item to a nec­es­sary ap­pli­ance today. (If you have lost elec­tric­ity for any pe­riod of time, you will be even more ap­pre­cia­tive of the cru­cial role the re­frig­er­a­tor plays in ev­ery­day life.) For one, it pre­serves the nu­tri­ents in our food. It also keeps our food safe for con­sump­tion by keep­ing bac­te­rial growth at bay for a longer pe­riod. Of course, it also keeps our favourite bev­er­ages cool and ready to be had. These are all things we can agree on. But when it comes to buy­ing a re­frig­er­a­tor, we all will have a dif­fer­ent take on which brand/model/ca­pac­ity is op­ti­mal. Apart from per­sonal tastes, that choice will largely de­pend on the stor­age ca­pac­ity we need, our eat­ing habits, space in the house and most im­por­tantly our bud­get. The very large num­ber of mod­els in the mar­ket may make the whole process more com­pli­cated than ex­pected. Just the brand name may not be suf­fi­cient to base a buy­ing de­ci­sion on. Here, we bring to you some con­sol­i­dated ba­sic re­search on frost-free re­frig­er­a­tors, fo­cus­ing on as­pects such as gross vol­ume, stor­age vol­ume, elec­tric­ity con­sump­tion and star rat­ing – fac­tors on the ba­sis of which you can make a choice among the many brands/ mod­els.
