    Product Overview

    This fridge freezer from Samsung is the ideal blend of style and innovation. Its 382 litre capacity can hold 21 bags of groceries, so you’ll have no trouble fitting your weekly shop in. And thanks to the clever SpaceMax Technology™ – which uses slimmer walls to maximise your internal storage space – you’ll have room for some tasty treats too. The Twin Cooling Plus™ system will make sure that your food stays deliciously fresh, by using separate cooling systems for the fridge and the freezer to prevent odours and flavours from spreading. There’s also a CoolSelect+ Zone – a clever drawer that can be used to thaw, chill, or gently freeze what’s inside.

    Features we love

    Store your favourite foods perfectly

    The Cool Select Plus feature lets you change the temperature of the pull-out drawer from day to day. So, whether you want to chill vegetables at 3 °C, soft freeze fish at -5 °C, or freeze meat at -12 °C, it’ll easily adapt to suit the foods you’re storing inside. All you’ll have to do is select the preferred mode from the menu. So no matter what you’ve picked up at the supermarket, you can keep it in the best condition for longer.

    Fresher and longer lasting groceries

    Samsung’s Twin Cooling Plus™ feature keeps your groceries in the best condition. By using 2 separate cooling systems in the fridge and freezer, each cabinet’s temperature and moisture level is kept completely independent of each other. This means that the air in one isn’t shared with the other, preventing flavours from transferring. And, because this stops the climate of each fluctuating, everything will stay fresher for longer.

    Never defrost your freezer again

    This model’s Total No Frost feature means the days of manually defrosting are well and truly over. Because cold air is constantly circulated inside the cabinet, icy build-ups are prevented, and frosty patches are eliminated. So, instead of feeling obliged to spend your time doing the tedious defrost, you can focus on doing the things you love instead.

    Reversible door hinge

    Thanks to the Reversible Door, this fridge freezer is really flexible. The door can be hinged on either the left or the right side, so it can open in whichever direction is easier for you. This means you can fit the fridge freezer anywhere in your kitchen, no matter the layout, as you won’t have to worry about walls, cabinets or other appliances restricting the opening of the door.

    Tips for measuring up

    This is a freestanding fridge freezer, so it won’t fit behind a cupboard door. Just measure the space in your kitchen to make sure it’ll fit and leave a little room so that the doors can open. The main measurement to check is height, as this can vary by model.

    The perfect fridge/freezer!

    Could not be happier with this fridge/freezer! It runs beautifully quiet, keeps both cold and frozen food at the perfect temperature and has an amazing amount of space inside. We’re a family of three adults and there’s never a fear of running out of space when putting groceries away after a weekly shop. Long overdue improvement over the last one we had!

    Quality fridge.

    Excellent quality throughout. A lot of refrigerators have very poor plastics for the drawers and door trays. They always seem to crack. These seem much thicker and stronger and hopefully will last a lot longer.
    Steve Mitchell

    Great product, shame about the packaging.

    Very large capacity and easy instructions to follow when setting it up. Only issue was the large amount of plastic and polystyrene packaging (not very environmentally friendly). Opted to unpack myself and the product was so statically charged it gave me multiple big jolts before it was discharged.

    Good sz fridge/ freezer

    We had the same fridge freezer in the past. It wasn’t the best quality. We decided to buy the newer model . We hope we will have a better luck this time. Fridge/ freezer is very good sz.

    Love my new fridge freezer

    This stunning fridge freezer is an absolute joy, having got rid of a noisy white fridge freezer this is stylish and silent. The fridge capacity is perfect for a family if four i particularly like the two draws for meat and veg. The freezer draws are deep which suits us more than four smaller draws. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Quality product - colour a bit odd

    Good size, fridge especially is enormous. Looks very smart. Well finished inside ie shelves etc seem good quality. It’s clearly a quality product. A little bit more noisy than I expected but not intrusive. The doors are a kind of silvery black colour - that’s why it’s described as black steel colour. The sides are a completely different dark grey colour which looks a bit odd.

    • Connection £10.00

      We’ll get your new fridge freezer in place, level the feet and take away all the bulky packaging for you. Your new appliance will need to sit for a few hours before it’s plugged in. This is important as it ensures the gas coolant inside the fridge settles. Unfortunately, our drivers won't be able to fit the handles on your new appliance if they're packed separately, and we aren’t currently offering a door reversal service.

    • Remove & Recycle £20.00
    • Disconnection £5.00

      We’ll disconnect your old freestanding appliance when we deliver your new one

      • This includes disconnecting it from your water pipes if it’s plumbed in

      Make delivery even easier by selecting all three connection and disconnection services in the basket. In one trip we can:

      • Disconnect and recycle your old appliance
      • Safely install your new one 

      Just a quick note: if you’re buying a freestanding appliance to replace an old integrated one, we won’t be able to disconnect it
