Largest Counter Depth Refrigerators - Whirlpool Lifestyle Image-1

 

A counter-depth refrigerator is typically close to 24 inches deep, the same as the average countertop depth, so they fit in close to the countertops rather than sticking out 5-7 inches. This is a step up from typical refrigerators that can give your kitchen a sleeker, high-end look without springing for a built-in or panel-ready design! We've compiled some of the largest counter depth refrigerator models available today to help large households find the perfect option for their needs.

Our reviews include features, prices, and links to customer reviews to help you discover these new models! We've reviewed four French door refrigerators and one side by side refrigerator.

1. LG LMWC23626S - 22.7 cu ft - $2,299

First up on our list of the largest counter depth refrigerator models is this 22.7 cubic foot Energy Star rated french door refrigerator from LG. LG is a JD Power Award winner for highest customer satisfaction with french door refrigerators, so it's definitely worth checking out! The LG LMWC23626S comes in fingerprint resistant PrintProof stainless steel starting at $2,299. 

What makes this model stand out is the dual freezer drawers. Most french door models have a single pull-out freezer drawer with two levels, and it can be hard to access everything and keep it organized. This LG model offers dual freezer drawers instead for convenience. There's an icemaker in the upper freezer. An internal filtered water dispenser in the fresh food section gives this refrigerator a sleek exterior style. 

LG's Smart Cooling technology makes the most out of the linear compressor and dual evaporators to tackle excess humidity and temperature changes. There's also Door Cooling+ to make sure that the fresh food section gets cold air from all angles. Temperature sensors and strategically placed vents make sure that all parts of the refrigerator are as cold as they should be. 

A ten-year parts warranty on the linear compressor, a five-year full warranty on the sealed system, and one year parts and labor on the whole thing will give you peace of mind so you can sit back and enjoy your huge new counter depth refrigerator! This new model for 2020 is also surprisingly affordable among counter depth French doors, too!

  • Depth including door, w/o handles: 28.625"

The external water dispenser allows you to dispense set amounts of water in ounces, cups, or liters, and you can save two preset amounts for often-filled items like coffee carafes or your daily water bottle. Another neat feature is the FreshSeal herb storage container, which can be placed anywhere in the fridge and maintains a higher humidity level to keep herbs fresh for longer. 

This is another model offering a linear compressor to help your refrigerator cool efficiently and smoothly for years. The storage options and custom temperature features really let you take the best care of different food items, including an under-shelf prep zone with a dishwasher-safe and oven-safe pan. This model needs to be experienced in-person to truly appreciate its many features!

The water dispenser and factory-installed icemaker take advantage of advanced water filtration with RPWFE filters that remove trace pharmaceuticals. This type of filtration can be helpful if your local water treatment plant's annual water quality report has more red flags than you would like, but isn't a must-have for everyone.

The flexible storage options give you powerful organization abilities - check them out in person! The manufacturer warranty includes one-year of full coverage, and five years parts and labor on the sealed system.

Next on our list of the largest counter depth refrigerator models is the 22.65 cubic foot Whirlpool WRS973CIDM, a side by side refrigerator that comes in stainless steel only at $2,499. An exterior ice and water dispenser, Adaptive Defrost, and Dual Cooling are just a few of the great features built into this model.

The StoreRight system with Dual Cooling keeps food fresh and helps reduce freezer burn by responding quickly to changes in humidity and temperature. Rather than take up valuable interior shelf space with an ice basket, In-Door-Ice Storage places the ice bucket in the door. The dispenser includes a Measured Fill feature: it can dispense an exact amount in ounces, cups, or liters. Fill your coffee carafe to the perfect level or skip the measuring cups when a recipe calls for water!

Take a look at this high-capacity side by side refrigerator and see if it might be right for you! It has lots of space-saving and space-optimizing features that will help you get the most out of that capacity!

5. LG LRFVC2406S - 23.5 cu ft - $3,999

If you're looking for smart appliances, the LG LRFVC2406S is one of the largest counter depth refrigerator models that's wi-fi enabled! It comes in stainless steel at $3,999 or in black stainless steel at $4,199, and has LG's premium InstaView Door-in-Door feature, too!

You'll probably never get tired of this refrigerator's cool trick: knock twice on the righthand door, and the panel goes from tinted to fully transparent so you can see inside. If you tend to browse with the door open, this feature lets you muse without losing cool air! The Door-in-Door aspect involves a compartment within the door where you can place the items you access often, like beverages or snacks, so the rest of the fridge can stay cool. Plus, the special icemaker in the freezer section can make ice spheres that melt more slowly than typical ice cubes and look great in cocktails!
