nevera vs refrigeradora

I heard both. What’s the difference?

9 months ago

I would say nevera or refrigeradora both are fine and widely used.
Fun Fact: when when I was in Barcelona, Spain (but Barcelona is Catalonia) they only said >nevereta< which is a small nevera I thought but they use it for fridges no matter the size.

I had to look it up myself it’s >frigorífico< and it is used in some parts of Mexico. Google says 'you might hear it but rarely see it written down.'

Both wrong! It’s frigorífico! 😉

It is sometimes used to refer to a ice cream store similar to an scoop shop in English afaik. (:

here is more fridge trivia google says:
In recent years, there has been a growing trend in Spain of using the word “frigo” as a slang term for “nevera” or “refrigerador”. This word is derived from the brand name “Frigo” of a popular ice cream brand in Spain.

This makes sense, as early refrigerators used blocks of ice to keep food cold.
I got one more Spanish word for fridge for you but I had to look it up myself:
It’s ‘frigo’.

kind of. I met mexicans in Barcelona and they said ‘refri’ it’s just a short form but they use it when they talk to each other. There is always ‘Textbook Spanish’ vs. ‘what people actually say Spanish’ 🙂

refrigeradora is more common in some other Latin American countries than Argentina y Uruguay.

Where do you use it or can I only use it with some specific Uruguayans with certain dialects who live in Andorra?” I really enjoy trivia a lot.

Just looked it up: The word “nevera” comes from the Latin word “nivaria”, which means “a place to store snow”.
