The freestanding fridge (SW8 AM2C XARL UK) scored five stars and was given the ‘Highly Recommended’ accolade. The refrigerator was praised for its massive capacity, consistent cooling, low running costs and described as a winner1.

The Whirlpool freestanding freezer (UW8 F2C XLSB) also scored five stars and received the ‘Highly Recommended’ honour. The freezer was commended for its outstanding looks, capacity, energy efficiency and performance2.
