French Door vs Side By Side - What's Right for Your Kitchen?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Mar 16, 2021 9:30 AM 

 

If you are shopping for a new refrigerator for your home, you've probably found the French door style tempting due to its popularity and its prominence in stores. French door refrigerators took the market by storm a few years ago and haven't slowed down! But before you make the plunge, it can't hurt to take another look at the side-by-side refrigerator style. With their modern features and styling, side by sides may be a good option if you consider the shelving options and the efficiency of the food storage. New ice maker designs give you more shelf space in the freezer section, too! They can be a great alternative to French door models for budget-conscious shoppers.

It's a tough choice – so let's dig into the pros and cons of both styles! (Quick tip: If you're looking for more info on choosing the best refrigerator for your needs, check out our refrigerator buying guide!) We'll also review two top-selling models from each category.

Refrigerator with Drawers - Designs, Reviews, & Pricing

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Oct 15, 2020 8:30 AM 

 

Several manufacturers make refrigerators with drawers, and they come in a few different flavors. These models are sometimes referred to as four door refrigerators, but that can be confusing since... well... most of the time, we're dealing with an extra drawer, not an extra door! The most popular style (which our four door article linked above focuses on) is an additional drawer between the fresh and frozen compartments, usually with adjustable temperature controls. However, LG recently came out with a surprisingly affordable dual freezer drawer refrigerator we'll review below, and we'll also explore other brands like KitchenAid's dual drawers.

Best Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator - Frigidaire Professional vs KitchenAid

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jun 11, 2019 8:00 AM 

 

Counter depth refrigerators are an easy way to take the style of your kitchen to the next level. They're typically 36" wide and about 70" tall with a total depth of 28-31" including the handles, so they won't stick out past your countertops. In many remodeled kitchens, center islands are installed which carry a dishwasher, slide-in range or wall oven and cook top, while leaving the refrigerator on the out-skirting walls. With a full-depth refrigerator, you will find that there is not enough elbow room to walk between the island and refrigerator. This is a perfect opportunity for a  counter depth model. It doesn't stick out, giving you more room in your kitchen and it gives you that clean modern finished look. You can read more about these models in our article on counter depth refrigerators
