Largest Side by Side Refrigerator Models of the Year Whirlpool WRS588FIHZ

 

The side-by-side refrigerator helps you keep everything important at eye-level, so you can easily access refrigerated and frozen items without bending over. A side-by-side refrigerator tends to be wider than a comparable bottom freezer or top freezer model, so they work best in kitchens with space to spare (compare side by side vs french door refrigerators in our article). They are often ADA Compliant because of their easy-access design, so they are a great option to consider if you or someone in your household has a physical disability.

If you're looking for the largest side by side refrigerator you can find, you're in the right place! We've compiled the largest side by side refrigerator models on the market today complete with all of the important features you need to know to make an informed buying decision. Side by sides can get pretty massive! Our list covers models priced as low as $1,299 all the way up to $4,099, with capacities as high as over 30 cubic feet.
