Sharp Refrigerators Review & Guide
With premium products sold in around 140 countries, Sharp aims to provide cutting edge appliances designed to ‘make people’s lives richer and their work more efficient’. From purifiers to cash registers, the global brand offers a wide selection of items to suit your home and business needs. Some of the products available include microwaves, kettles, toasters, calculators and printers.
For the kitchen, Sharp provides several top mount and French Door refrigerators to suit different types of households. If you’re looking for an attractive appliance to complement your new kitchen, the glass finish on models such as the Sharp SJXP580GBK top mount fridge may be ideal. Big families and growing households might also be able to find something from Sharp’s shelves, especially with models like the Sharp SJFJ676VWH French Door fridge containing 4-doors and 676L worth of customisable space.
Sharp Top Mount Fridges
With an elegant frameless glass finish, the Sharp SJXP580GBK may be an ideal fridge for style conscious shoppers. The premium top mount model has a 581L total capacity and a 3.5 energy star rating. Sharp claims this top mount fridge is suitable for people wanting an easy to maintain model. And compared to refrigerators with a steel finish, the black glass doors on the SJXP580GBK are stated to be more resistant towards scratches and dents.
If you’re concerned about energy-efficiency, the model includes an ECO mode said to consume less power. The fridge also comes with a J-Tech Inverter, which apparently allows the appliance to save energy as well as cool food and drinks quicker. The inverter is similarly said to increase the durability of the compressor by minimising the wear and tear on the compressor, as well as reduce levels of noise and vibration.
Other key features include:
- Hybrid Cooling: distributes air to ensure contents are evenly cooled, and prevents food and drink from being too dry or overly cold
- Plasmacluster Ion Technology: maintains food freshness for longer by removing bad smells and reducing the amount of airborne substances like bacteria and mold spores
- LED lighting: gives white full-rear lighting
- Advanced LED Control Panel: allows you to access the different functions for modes such as ‘energy saving’, ‘Plasmacluster Ion’, ‘extra cool’, ‘express freezing’ and ‘temperature control’.
The Sharp SJXP580GBK top mount fridge has a 405L refrigerator capacity and a 176L freezer capacity. The Sharp SJXP580GSL is alternatively available and features silver glass doors.
Sharp French Door fridges
If you’re looking for a refrigerator that can keep a large amount of food and drinks fresh, the 676L Sharp SJFJ676VWH might be the ideal model for you.
Unlike some of the other options in the brand’s range, this model contains the Ag+ Nano Deodoriser. This is said help remove any bad smells and maintain freshness for longer by trapping odour molecules every time air goes through the filter.

In addition to the egg tray and the fruit and vegetable compartment, this 4 door refrigerator is said to come with 3 wide tempered glass shelves and 7 large door pockets.

In this model, the Japanese technology is stated to minimise energy consumption, reduce noise level, freeze items quicker and maintain consistent temperature. The J-Tech Inverter also powers functions like the Extra Cool mode, which is said to cool food and drink at 0-2°C without freezing it. It also powers the Express Freeze feature which is said to provide ice 35% faster than conventional refrigerators.

Should I buy a Sharp fridge?
There’s nothing cool about trying to find ‘cold spots’ in your fridge because your current model doesn’t distribute the cold air evenly. And storing food and drink shouldn’t feel like a game of Tetris just because there isn’t enough space to fit everything you need.
If you’re shopping for a big family or just want a refrigerator with plenty of space, the brand’s range of French Door refrigerators like the 676L Sharp SJFJ676VWH and 624L SJXE624FSL offer the most room in the collection. Other models like the SJXP580GBK and SJXP580GSL are apparently a suitable option for anyone shopping for something that’s easy to clean and maintain due to the black glass doors.
These types of refrigerators are said to be more resistant to scratches and dents than products like the Sharp SJXE624FSL which have a steel finish. Many of the models also come with a J-Tech Inverter, which might be an ideal factor for people looking for a long-term solution. This is said to ensure longevity by reducing the wear and tear on the compressor, as well provide other benefits like reduced noise levels and vibration.
