Frigidaire Gallery FGTR1845QF

If you're looking for a high-performing stainless-steel fridge that won't break the bank, the Frigidaire Gallery FGTR1845QF fits the bill. While cost-cutting is evident in a few places—there's no ice maker and the storage solutions are pretty skimpy—you’'ll get consistent temperatures and exceptional energy efficiency in a beautiful package. And it's hard to argue with that sub-$700 sale price.

LG LTNS16121V

The LG LTNS16121V looks great, especially compared to other top freezers in the same price bracket. It's a statement piece that won't break the bank, even if it has just acceptably average cooling. If looks are your thing, and space—as well as budget—is tight, it's a decidedly elegant option.

Frigidaire FFTR1821QS

On sale, the Frigidaire FFTR1821QS is pretty much the cheapest way to get a stainless-steel fridge. It doesn't receive our top marks since it runs a little warm by default and feels a bit cheap, but these issues shouldn’t be dealbreakers—especially for the intended audience. Frigidaire advertises it as "garage ready," and if that’s what you’re looking for, there’s no doubt the FFTR1821QS will get the job done.

GE GIE16DGHBB

If you’re on the hunt for a fridge that won’t make you sacrifice size for money, the GE GIE16DGHBB might be your best bet. With excellent energy efficiency, a built-in icemaker, and plenty of storage, this is a great fit for the frugal buyer. Temperature consistency issues and cheap-feeling wire shelving may keep this unit from top-of-the-line status, but it does what it was designed to do without sucking up all your cash.
