Most popular small & medium fridges in Australia in 2019
We uncover five of the most searched-for fridges under 600L on Getprice.
Every modern Australian home, big or small, will have need for a refrigerator, whether it’s a Mitsubishi, Samsung, Westinghouse, LG, or Waeco. In fact, the fridge is arguably the most important kitchen appliance for sale today – and they come in many, many shapes and sizes. Bar fridges, mini fridges, or minibars are all essentially the same thing – a tiny fridge like what you get in most hotel rooms – which has a variety of use cases, but is often a backup or secondary device to a main larger fridge. There are also a range of more specialised devices – wine fridges, for example, have a pretty obvious function.
On this page we’re looking at devices that constitute a small or medium fridge (a refrigerator with a capacity under 600 litres), which will cover most family and small household needs, but if you want to check out larger and French door fridges, we’ve got a page for that too. If you know what you want, buying refrigerators online is great because you get to compare prices on the whole range from the comfort of your desk, but we’ve made the choice a little easier on you by selecting five of the most popular medium refrigerators available in Australia today.
