A refrigerator is an essential item every kitchen must have. It comes in many types to suit different needs.
. With larger storage space, it is possible to store more food, ingredients, and leftovers for the whole family. Thus, it all depends on the lifestyle of each household.
1. Size and capacity
The first thing to consider when you decide to buy a new multi-door refrigerator is the size. The most common selection method is to calculate the number of family members. A typical equation is to use 2.5 cubic feet for two people. After that, you can add another cubic foot per member. For example, if your family has 7 members, use the formula 2.5 + 5 = 7.5 cubic feet. This means that the most suitable refrigerator size for your family is 7.5 cubic feet.
2. Energy saving
It is another essential factor to consider because multi-door refrigerators consume more energy than smaller models. Thus, it is helpful to select models with energy saving label no. 5 to ensure energy saving capability.
3. Internal compartments
All of the parts should be in good condition, for example, you should be able to pull out and push in the shelves conveniently. The drawers in the freezer must have a separated part inside to adjust the suitable temperature. The drawers for fresh produce must have proper temperature control to extend its shelf-life. The material used for each compartment must be durable.
4. Other functionalities
Other necessary functionalities include long preservation period of food, preservation of freshness, air filtration that reduces unwanted odors, and dual-cooling system that enhances the efficiency of the freezer and speeds up the cooling. You can consider if these features are necessary for you or not.
5. Price and value
Price directly determines the worthiness of a product. A simple calculation for a model that is most worthy and fits your need the best is from the formula (price ÷ number of years in warranty period) + (electricity cost per year labeled in energy saving label no. 5 ÷ 365 days). From the calculation, you can compare among the result. The result with the least value is the most well worth model for your need. There are several models to choose as follows.
