Confirmed purchaser Busy mum or dad

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It looks nice as part of a fully integrated fitted kichen
Bad points:
The fridge makes unusual noises from time to time - just like a yound child crying. The interior light doesn't always stay on when the fridge is open. The fridge often has a lot of condensation inside as if it is warming up periodically then cooling down again.

We had the top of the range free standing fridge freezer from the same company which we had for about 13 years prior to this one which is integrated. It was fantastic, certainly never had any of the problems listed above. We paid a similar price for this integrated one but it doesn't even come close in build quality and the functions on it are non-existent compared. We still have the old fridge freezer working in the garage! We wanted an extra shelf for the new fridge and it was so expensive. I have come to the conclusion that these days applicances are not as good as they were >10 years ago and integrated are not worth the money but they look good in the new kitchen and that is what you are paying for.

Confirmed purchaser Style conscious

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Does what it says on the ticket! But being an integrated fridge it has less capacity than im used to in a free standing appliance....why cant they make integrated fridges and frezers fit in larger spaces...another 200mm wide cabinet would make all the difference to storage and im sure wouldnt be a problem to kitchen designers, geniuses that they are
Bad points:
Ice cube trays in the drawer are a gimmick.....you will have trouble getting the ice balls out of the container. Its a good idea but it doesnt work! Would be if the top came off to get the ice out rather than the end

terasa, swindon Busy mum or dad

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
nice big fridge area
Bad points:
installation instructions very unclear - we required an engineer to come and sort out changing the door over to open on opposite side as screws provided were very difficult to take out of current side and impossible to replace on other side without a good quality ratchet. not considered an easy domestic installation.

top freezer drawer a waste of time - hardly any space in it. would be more use to have two bigger ones.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fridge is a really good size
Like the ice cube compartments built into the front of the freezer drawers - good idea because saves space within the drawers, which are not that big.
Bad points:
Have not found any yet but have not had it very long.
