People have been buying fridges, freezers and fridge freezers like it's going out of style recently. But the gargantuan yet chic Fisher & Paykel RF605QDUVX1, winner of the T3 Awards 2020 for best fridge freezer, will never go out of style. The Fisher & Paykel is not only beautifully made, it's so big inside, you expect Doctor Who to be living in it
Although it certainly has the look of an 'American-style fridge freezer', F&P characterises the RF605QDUVX1 as a 'quad door fridge freezer'. Because it has four doors. The design of it is stylish, practical and desirable – and with an A+ energy rating, it's efficient too.
The Fisher & Paykel RF605QDUVX1 has a whopping 496L storage capacity, equivalent to 31 bags of shopping, with a 70/30 split between fridge and freezer. It features ActiveSmart technology to keep food fresher, and an ultra-slim water and ice dispenser.
Behind the bottom right door lurks a brilliant Variable Temperature Mode area. Here you can switch between four cooling modes at the touch of a button. As well as the standard fridge and freezer options, you can go for 'soft freeze' (-8º to -6ºC) for food that doesn't like being blast frozen, and 'chill' (-2º to 0ºC) for keeping your booze ice cold.
Modes are selected via a one-touch control panel, and premium materials are used throughout: that means real stainless steel, solid glass and LED illumination reminiscent of a top nightclub.
The independent compartments offer flexible storage, with four flush-fitting doors for easy access. We say it's so good that if it’s too big for your kitchen, you should simply move to a bigger home.
