Largest Side by Side Refrigerator - Whirlpool Lifestyle Image

 

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. This refrigerator style 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 $1,399 all the way up to $2,399, with capacities as high as 28.5 cubic feet. 

  • Want your refrigerator to display the actual current temperature? GE has been rolling this out across many of their products!

  • Looking for a sleek and modern design? Samsung leads the way with integrated handles and a minimalist-style water dispenser.

  • Want the latest tech? LG's door-in-door refrigerator (see #4 on our list) might be for you.

1. Whirlpool WRS588FIHZ - 28.5 cu ft - $1,899

First up on our list of the largest side-by-side refrigerators of 2021 is the Whirlpool WRS588FIHZ. It's available in black or white at $1,799, fingerprint resistant stainless steel at $1,899, and the new fingerprint resistant black stainless steel style at $1,999. 

Some of the neat features available in this side-by-side refrigerator include the FreshFlow Air Filter, which is 15 times more effective than baking soda at reducing common food odors, and In-Door Ice Storage to free up freezer shelving space. The frameless glass shelves also boost storage capacity compared to shelves with thick plastic frames. Clear door bins and interior bins throughout make it easy to find what you need. The freezer has two pull-out bins, while the fresh food section has crispers and a deli drawer. This model also offers a Measured Fill option for the water dispenser: set the number of ounces, cups, or liters you want and the dispenser will automatically shut off when it's done!

With helpful features, an ADA compliant rating, and a ton of storage space, this model is available at a great price as well! But this article isn't over yet - keep reading to discover more amazing models with tons of storage capacity.

2. GE Profile PSS28KYHFS - 28.2 cu ft - $2,599

The GE Profile series offers a range of streamlined, sleek appliances in stainless steel that are easy to match and offer a premium look to any kitchen. The GE Profile PSS28KYHFS is one of the largest side-by-side refrigerator models around and one of the largest in the GE Profile series at this price point. It's similar in size to the Whirlpool model above, but with some additional features that make it a truly premium refrigerator. It's available in fingerprint resistant stainless steel at $2,599.

LED lighting illuminates the inside of the fridge, so it's easier to find your food items. Baskets and drawers in the refrigerator and freezer cavities offer multi-level storage to help you sort and organize your food items. The factory-installed Arctica icemaker is perfect for hosting parties or keeping cool in the summer. It's a good choice if you want a large icemaker. However, it does take up space in the door and the top freezer shelf. The freezer offers one fixed and two adjustable bins rather than the typical one for more flexible storage. The fresh food side has crispers and a deli drawer plus glass spill-proof shelves throughout. Note that the shelves do have a thick rim around the edge, so they can't be used wall-to-wall like some other options. We like that the water dispenser includes an actual temperature display so you can check on your refrigerator's cooling in real time. 

This GE Profile model comes with a full five-year warranty on the sealed system and a limited one-year warranty on the entire appliance. This model is new (so we still have to look out for actual customer reviews), but with a high-end look inside and out plus great organization options, this XL-capacity refrigerator is an impressive and massive side-by-side refrigerator!

 

Features:

  • Built-in icemaker and water dispenser with advanced water filtration

  • LED lighting for crisp lighting

  • Arctica icemaker

  • Actual temperature display with upfront electronic temperature controls

  • Never Clean Condenser

 

Dimensions:

  • Width: 36"

  • Depth: 36.5"

  • Height: 69.5"

3. LG LRSXS2706S - 27 cu ft - $1,554

LG offers some of the largest French door refrigerators on the market, and this side-by-side model is a great example of a large but reasonably priced refrigerator. To keep food cool and fresh longer, it features Door Cooling+ and Linear Cooling (read about the LG linear compressor here). The compact SpacePlus Ice System is placed on the inside door of the freezer section of the LG LRSXS2706S to free up shelf space and can hold up to 3.5 pounds of ice.

The ice and water dispenser is designed to dispense chilled filtered water to filtered cubed or crushed ice with just a light touch. Inside the fresh food section, you'll find four tempered glass shelves and four bins. The freezer section has five glass shelves, one drawer, and door bins. Four temperature sensors monitor the interior to make sure your fridge stays uniformly cool.

The warranty covers one year parts and labor, and five years parts and labor on the sealed system and linear compressor. With thoughtful features and interior touch display controls, this affordable model is a great option.

 

Features:

  • ADA compliant

  • Door Cooling Plus

  • SpacePlus ice system

  • LED lighting

  • LoDecibel Quiet Operation

  • Smooth Touch Ice Dispenser

5. Samsung RS27T5200SR - 27.4 cu ft - $1,499

The final model in our review of the largest side-by-side refrigerator options on the market is the Samsung RS27T5200SR. If you're looking for a premium style for a low price, this model is fingerprint resistant and has integrated pocket handles plus a sleek water dispenser that make it look more expensive than it is!

An in-door icemaker takes up most of the door storage in the freezer, leaving space for glass shelves and a clear bin. The fresh food section has two clear crisper drawers and plenty of clear door storage so it's easy to find what you're looking for. Samsung covers the sealed system and compressor for five years parts and labor, plus an additional 5 years parts only after that on the compressor.

This ADA compliant model offers good basic storage options packed into a premium exterior design that will look great in your kitchen.

 

Features:

  • In-door icemaker and water dispenser

  • Internal digital temperature controls

  • ADA compliant

  • Modern design with pocket handles
