1. LG LRFVS3006D - 29.7 cu ft - $4,099

The first model from our list of the five largest French door refrigerator choices is the LG LRFVS3006D, available in stainless steel at $3,999 and black stainless steel at $4,099. With almost 30 cubic feet of capacity at 36" wide, it offers a ton of space for households with a lot of mouths to feed! It features LG's Smart Cooling Plus technology and a door in door design.

This door in door refrigerator reduces cold air loss by 47% when you use it to store your most-accessed items like snacks and beverages. The InstaView door panel allows you to take a peek inside of the refrigerator just by knocking on the tinted panel!




This model maximizes the available space in the fresh food section with a Slim SpacePlus ice system and adjustable shelving. The Slim SpacePlus ice system is located in the door rather than taking up part of a shelf or drawer area, keeping ice close to the ice and water dispenser so it's accessible but never taking up more space than needed! And in the freezer section you'll find LG Craft Ice, which makes slow-melting spherical ice that adds class to any beverage.

The warranty includes a full five-year warranty on the sealed system, five years on the compressor, and 6-10 years on the linear compressor for parts only. It also comes with a general one year parts and labor warranty.
