Best French Door Fridges of 2018

By Reviewed Staff

French door refrigerators are popular because they put fresh food at eye level, and their wide shelves fit everything from baking sheets to pizzas. They come in all different shapes and sizes, and the higher-end models offer features like temperature-controlled drawers and hot water dispensers. Prices range from $1,000 for a basic model to upwards of $4,000 for a fully loaded fridge. Our current favorite is the GE Café CFE28TSHSS (available at Home Depot for $2,899.00).

Kenmore Elite 72483

  • Best of Year 2016

Kenmore Elite 72483

In addition to sleek design, ergonomic layout, adjustable shelves, and excellent food preservation performance, the 29.9 cu. ft. Kenmore Elite 72483 adds a separate temperature-controlled center drawer for storing everything from snacks and deli meats to wine. Though it has an external water and ice dispenser, the fridge hides all its controls behind the door, which gives the 72483 a minimal and contemporary look. Read full review.

On sale, the Samsung RF260BEAESR can drop as low as $1,200. Even though it's affordable, this 25.5 cu. ft.

Kenmore Elite 74025

  • Editors' Choice

Kenmore Elite 74025

The Kenmore Elite 74025 is essentially the same fridge as the Kenmore Elite 72483, but without the additional pantry drawer. Both fridges have dual evaporators and linear compressors for improved fresh and frozen food preservation. The freezer door tilts open for easier access, and many interior shelves can be adjusted. In addition to stainless, this 29.8 cu. ft. fridge also comes in black, white, and even bisque. Read full review.
