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.

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.

Frigidaire FFTR1814QW



With its low retail price, the FFTR1814QW is a great choice for a tight budget. Of course, to hit that low price, Frigidaire had to make a few compromises. Mostly, that's involved erring on the side of simplicity. Still, this fridge has a lot to offer, with plenty of storage space, great energy efficiency, and solid crisper performance. Given the cost of entry, it shouldn’t be too hard to look past its few flaws and revel in the positives.
