The Frigidaire winners of the Reviewed.com 2015 Best of Year Awards include:
Best Appliance Design
Frigidaire Professional® Series
The Frigidaire Professional® Collection focuses on consumers' needs for professional-grade design and performance at a great value. Inspired by restaurant-style kitchens, the collection offers first-to-market Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel, heavy-duty, straightforward controls and powerful features like the 2-in-1 PowerPlus® Burner & Griddle that delivers consistency and flexibility. The collection's professional-grade appliances are also designed to fit existing kitchen cutouts, making it accessible to a wide variety of consumers who are interested in upgrading their kitchen without executing a complicated remodel.
Best Electric Range
Frigidaire Professional® 30'' Electric Front Control Freestanding Range (FPEH3077RF)
Referred to as a "striking centerpiece for an all-electric kitchen" by Reviewed.com, this Electric Front Control Freestanding Range passed every test thrown its way. The performance of its PowerPlus® Convection delivers consistently even results, while the PowerPlus® Temperature Probe allows you to achieve and maintain the desired finished temperature, alerting you when that temperature has been reached. The range comes in Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel to resist fingerprints and clean easily.
Best New Refrigerator Feature
Frigidaire Gallery® CustomFlex™
Top freezer refrigerators, which represent 50 percent of the refrigeration market, have seen little innovation in decades. Given this, Frigidaire Gallery® conducted extensive consumer research in this category. The findings inspired Frigidaire to create a full CustomFlex™ Door that offers more than 100 ways to organize and a redefined layout of the interior inclusive of bins and accessories that flip up and move so your refrigerator door is completely versatile. This customization enables quick access to fresh ingredients with organizational solutions that optimize space savings.
Best Value Refrigerator
Frigidaire Gallery® 18 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator (FFTR1814QW)
The Frigidaire Top Freezer Refrigerator provides extra storage space and food-preserving features, which means less time and money spent at the store and more time with the family. The Store-More™ Humidity-Controlled Crisper Drawers keep fruits and vegetables fresh longer and the Store-More™ Gallon Door Shelf creates more room for larger items like a gallon of milk.
Best Induction Range
Frigidaire Gallery® 30'' Freestanding Induction Range (FGIF3061NF)
Reviewed.com honored the induction range with a perfect score in March, declaring it better than 100% of all ranges tested and 100% of the ranges tested under $2,000. According to Reviewed.com, the range "makes the most compelling case for upgrading from a traditional electric range to induction." Utilizing induction technology, the range enables families to boil water in less than two minutes and get meals to the table faster. True Convection provides faster, more even multi-rack baking for consistent results. The Smudge Proof™ Stainless Steel finish resists fingerprints and cleans easily, saving valuable cleaning time.
