The Best Side by Side Refrigerator Models (LG vs Whirlpool)

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jan 23, 2020 7:30 AM 

 

LG and Whirlpool didn't start out making refrigerators, but their side by side refrigerator offerings available today provide some great features that consumers love! Side by side refrigerators offer a unique setup where you can place your often used items in both the refrigerator and freezer conveniently at eye level rather than having to bend over to reach one or the other in a top or bottom freezer refrigerator model. A side by side refrigerator will usually require less space in front of it to fully open the doors. However, side by side refrigerators tend to be wider than comparable top freezer and bottom freezer models.

In this article, we compare two of the best side by side refrigerator models from these brands, with links to customer reviews and more. If you want to explore even more options, check out our complete reviews of the best side by side refrigerator models of the year!
