Entertain in style and keep drinks ice cold with the best fridges with ice makers

Chill out at home.

When shopping for our big ticket items, like the humble refrigerator, looking for one that does it all is usually top of mind.

While they store all our delicious goods inside – keeping them nice and cool – fridges can also offer an extra, refreshing touch with a convenient ice and water dispenser.

It’s perfect for entertaining or just everyday enjoyment, which is why you’d be smart to consider whether or not the fridge you’re after comes with an ice maker.

Can you get a fridge with an ice dispenser?

Yes, popular brands like Samsung, Westinghouse, and LG offer many fridges with ice makers built in to automatically make upscale, slow-melting round ice without the work.

Are ice makers in the fridge worth it?

If you value convenience, have the available space, and are willing to invest in an ice maker fridge, it can be a worthwhile addition to your kitchen.

You’ll always have a steady supply of ice available, without the need to manually fill ice trays, and ice maker fridges generally produce ice faster and in larger quantities.

Do ice maker fridges need plumbing?

While most fridges with built in ice makers and water taps will need to be connected to your kitchen’s water supply, there are some that have no plumbing at all.

However, these plumbing-free fridges use a water tank to make their ice and water, which needs to be manually refilled.
