The outdoor fridge we install will always need to tick three boxes: look great, have ample storage space and be at least IP4 rated or above. Beefeater and Bull models of outdoor fridges tick all these. In this article we will explain what to look out for and how to withstand the diverse weather conditions of the UK.

What to look for in Outdoor Fridges for UK Gardens

Single Door or Double door

Choosing between a single-door and a double-door outdoor fridge often boils down to space availability and your specific needs. If space is not a constraint, opting for the double door model like the 190L Double Door by Beefeater can be a wise decision. With an RRP of £1,845.00, compared to £1,375.00 for the 120L Single Door by Beefeater, the price difference is not significantly steep considering the space advantages. The additional 70L of space in the double-door variant offers more storage capacity and adds a touch of grandeur to any outdoor kitchen setup. Both models ensure consistent cooling, which is vital for food safety and as importantly maintaining the perfect drinks temperature. So, if your outdoor entertaining space allows, the double-door fridge offers practical benefits and an impressive aesthetic appeal without a significant price increase.

Durable and Weather-Resistant

Bull and Beefeater test all their products to IP standards. It is important to look for an outdoor fridge with a minimum IPX4 rating, meaning it is splash-waterproof. The IPX4 rating indicates that it can withstand rain, especially when installed in an aluminium framing system with a worktop on top like ours.
