For many households, a fridge-freezer is the obvious space-saving alternative to having two separate appliances. Today’s market offers no shortage of choice, and one of the best mid-range options is the Zanussi ZRG14800WA freestanding undercounter fridge-freezer. Finished in glossy white, it provides a surprising amount of room, as well as all the necessary fuss-free features you’d expect. What’s more, it also boasts an A+ energy efficiency rating, meaning it won’t drive your utility bills through the roof.
For any family household, adequate space is the number one priority when picking out a new fridge-freezer. Fortunately, the ZRG14800WA ticks that box, offering a gross capacity of 125 litres. Because it boasts thin but effective insulation, it’s able to provide more space than other standard size fridge-freezers, meaning you’ll be able to store more and shop less. Alongside the main fridge there’s a freezer compartment. Offering a 19-litre capacity, it may not be the largest out there, but it’s perfect for those that only freeze things occasionally, or already own a separate freezer and could do with a little bit more space.
If you’re anything like PriceRunner, then you like things organized so that they’re easy to find. Alongside its freezer drawer, the Zanussi ZRG14800WA has a shelf or compartment for absolutely everything. There’s the large capacity fresh food stage space, which offers two adjustable shelves, for all your meats, spreads, and whatever else you like to keep in there, as well as an extra-roomy salad drawer for all things green and healthy. The door also features two full-width shelves ideal for milk bottles and condiments, with an egg tray above.
Whilst the Zanussi ZRG14800WA isn’t one of those fridge-freezers laden with fancy bells and whistles, it still offers plenty of features to make life that bit easier. Each of its shelves and drawers can be easily removed and replaced, making cleaning it an absolute breeze. When it comes to arduous domestic chores, one that’s at the top of the list is defrosting. With its automatic defrost technology however, the Zanussi ZRG14800WA does it all by itself. In fact, this fridge-freezer requires no effort whatsoever, with its simple no-nonsense controls.
