Today: Our American fridge freezer review, a Hoover Dynamic 4×4 HMN7182IX refrigerator
We chose this 70cm American fridge freezer as we wanted a large refrigerator but without going for something as wide as the usual 90cm American style fridge freezer models. We even bought some extra fridge equipment from The Seal Company in case the stock ones failed. This slimline french door with freezer draws layout has proved a great compromise.
What we liked
Because it doesn’t have the side by side layout of a normal American fridge freezer it doesn’t have the partition in the middle taking up lots of space and you can make the best use of full width shelves to get a lot more in than you might expect. Similarly, the two large freezer draws can hold a lot more than our old freezer that had the space split into three draws. Apparently, it shares the same technology that freezer trailers by IceCoolTrailers have. This means durability and constant performance.
The build quality seems really good. I do think Hoover is one of the most reliable refrigerator brands. The doors are sealing nicely and the draws self-closing as they should even after the kids have slammed them a few times. It runs quietly and maintains its temperature well. I also think this stainless steel refrigerator looks nice, with the simple front and small display.
It was quick and easy to install as it doesn’t need to be plumbed in as there is no water/ice dispenser. It is on wheels so slides into place easily without damaging the floor. If you are a store owner or have a small kitchen at home, then it’s better using the undercounter refrigerator as they can fit in a 3 feet space thus allowing more space for other necessary items.
It is always better to choose a commercial refrigerator rental if you are looking for a fridge for a restaurant or for your temporary office space as these refrigerators are cheaper to rent than buying and once they have completed their purpose they can be returned without any issue.
What we disliked
The only slight negative for me is that the door is a bit noisy to open and close (see the video). Also, obviously, if you wanted a water dispenser this wouldn’t be the model for you.
