Yes I have but I dont want to take the plastic off the front and friends are laughing at me -I have this thing that I leave plastic on!!!
I have stocked it but am so careful as the last one looked clean but when I emptied it, it was filthy! so now, i dont want to make it dirty so washing and dry e3verything before putting in!!
Oh Finy, you make me laugh. Relax. If it gets 'gross' just give it a clean out. I have to do this one or twice every couple of months as I can't be bothered giving everything I put in the fridge a wipe down.
My husband is sitting next to me now telling me to tell you that his grandparents use to cover their couch in plastic. "In summer, it was like a swimming pool"! Oh my gosh, I'm in stitches.
About eighteen months ago, when I moved house and had to leave the fridge I'd been using behind. I can't remember what kind it is, an LG maybe. It does the job. My only complaint would be I wish it had more slots in the egg storage part since when our hens are laying well we sometimes have too many to store.
You lucky thing Jenny -that is something I miss -not having my own eggs -I used to have ducks....I read that leaving eggs in the carton keeps them fresher and that is what I always do now -also would help with your problem?
I bought a new fridge after the disaster known as Cyclone Yasi!! I used the special funding allowed for being without power for an extended period.The inspectors came to check out all damage and allowed a certain amount for loss of food and damage to the fridge and freezer. I was extremely lucky as the big half yearly sales were just ending so I got a REALLY brilliant price for the exact Fisher and Paykel 2 door fridge I wanted to buy!! I have always loved this brand and am very pleased with my latest fridge which is now 4 years old!!
Mine has its freezer on the top,but with my bad health issues this suited me better than being on the bottom! I think the overall size is a bit smaller than your new one Finy. I also have always liked the F & P because these allow for the doors to open to suit the spot in the kitchen where they have to be! Mine opens from Left to Right which is brilliant.I must admit that some other brands are also allowing for the option to open either way these days.,Not before time!!
I do also have an F & P upright freezer which is very easy for me to access and allows for me to purchase items on special to save me some money. This freezer was 2nd hand when I bought it well over 15 years ago.I truly do love this brand of white goods!!!
As for keeping the plastic protection sheet on,I know where you are coming from,oh so well!!! I am notorious for doing the same especially with my laptop!!! Too Funny!!
I bought one when I moved towns about 9 years ago. It was just me on my own so I just got a really small one and I think I just got the cheapest that was the size I wanted. When my partner and I moved in together we used his fridge as it is big. We are probably due to buy a new fridge soon as his would have to be around 12-14 years old.
I have never bought a fridge. I imagine, like you said, Finy, that once you've got a set space in which to fit it, the choice isn't as vast. I don't like fridges with double doors. They look to be too small on the inside. So I prefer standard one-door fridges with the freezer at the top.
I have only bought fridges when the previous one had broken down. This meant a very quick decision making process, revolving around size, price bracket and delivery date. It has always turned out ok, although it would be nice not to have to rush the decision next time : -)
A long time ago. Current one still working fine but am readying myself for when it conks out. Will then go to "appliances on line" who do great deals with electrical items and install your new fridge/washer and take away the old one! My only problem is making sure fridge fits into the allocated space in the kitchen so have to make sure my measurements are spot on.
Update on that comment - have just bought a new Samsung stainless steel fridge from "appliances on line" - they were $300 cheaper than any of their rivals. They also deliver and install free! Great deal from these guys.
in 1972. A Thorn 160ltr. It is still my only fridge, but its third motor is not doing well. I find modern fridges very disappointing and 'tinny'. The small ones do not even FREEZE ice-cream, They only chill = that's useless to me, as I do not like sloppy ice-cream.
I bought my westinghouse fridge 22 years ago. It was my very first brand new anything and I bought it with my first tax return with the help of my lovely ex father inlaw who got me a great discount so could afford the bigger model. It still runs perfectly and I have not even replaced the seals. I think I got my moneys worth.
