    Lovely showroom in Uphall and plenty of product on display. Ended up getting bifolding doors last year so my review is long overdue. Recently had a remedial issue and the customer care I received was great. I must thank Callum for arranging for replacement parts and for a fitter to attend. Thank you ekco.

    Had a great experience with ekco from start to finish. The staff were very helpful and communicated well throughout our project. The tradesmen were efficient and showed up on time. I was very impressed by their standard of workmanship and how they would tidy up after themselves. Everything was completed in a timely manner and I’m delighted with my new bathroom.

      Fridge Freezers

      Kitchen designers that want to build quality kitchens will not only focus on colour schemes and worktops – they’ll also consider your kitchen appliances. That’s why German kitchen specialist Ekco has put together its Siemens fridge freezers buyers’ guide to help you find fridge freezers for your premium kitchens.

      Why do you need fridge freezers?

      Induction hobs use induction heating to cook your food. Typically this means that there is a coil of copper wire underneath the cooking pot – an electric current flows through this coil, producing an oscillating magnetic field. This in turn induces the electric current into the pot meaning that the food is heated.

      Are there disadvantages with an induction hob?

      Fridge freezers are among the most important appliances in your home. Fridges keep food fresh and ensure it keeps its taste; while freezers help you hygienically store food that you are not planning to cook straight away.

      What type of fridge freezer is right for you?There are a number of different factors to consider when choosing a fridge freezer:

      • Separate or combined: It is possible to buy fridges with freezer compartments, but if you already have a freezer then you may want to consider a separate larder fridge that will offer extra storage space.
      • Size: With freezers, consider the freezing capacity you need and this will help you choose between an upright freezer and a chest freezer. Generally, chest freezers are best suited to be installed in a garage or utility room in a larger home – they have top opening lids that work best for freezing in bulk. Meanwhile, upright freezers are narrower but can normally be placed with the rest of your kitchen appliances. Most standard fridges and compact fridges, meanwhile, will fit under kitchen worktops, although tall fridges are available for those who have more space.
      • Features: There are a number of features to look out for with fridge freezers. For example, with a fridge look for: auto defrost, so you will never have to defrost the fridge; anti-bacterial coatings for additional hygiene; and the number of shelves and fittings it includes, such as a wine rack. With freezers you may want to look for frost-free freezers to avoid defrosting; fast freeze, if you need to freeze food quickly; and the shelves and fixtures based on how much you want to store.
      Consider energy efficiency

      All fridge freezers come with an energy efficiency rating from A-G. With manufacturers now striving to meet efficiency standards the majority that are available are either A+ or A++. Generally, the more efficient the fridge freezer is, the more expensive it will be – however, this is usually offset by lower running costs. If you’re particularly environmentally conscious then you may want to check that the fridge freezer is free of CFCs and HFCs which are believed to influence global warming.

      Whichever fridge freezer you opt for, consider the fridge freezer listings at Ekco for your purchases across Edinburgh, Glasgow and throughout Scotland.
