Best French Door Fridges / Refrigerators

If you’re a fan of bottom mount fridges but require an appliance that offers more space, a French door fridge might be your best option. Wide and spacious, French door fridges have the same design as a bottom fridge (freezer at the bottom, fridge at the top), but with a different door system. Read more…

Annoying doorsMy Hisense fridge doors never stay open which is annoying when you are trying to load it and it closes on you. This has resulted in damage to the crisper. I had the hinges replaced under warranty and the doors were good for a while. It's just started doing the same and Hisense aren't interested as it's now out of warranty. Very disappointing Show details

Leaky filter housing ruined floorThe water filter housing at the rear of our Fisher and Paykel French door fridge has had a constant slow leak that ruined our spotted gum flooring adjacent to the fridge. On searching the internet, this is a common problem for which Fisher and Paykel should have notified owners and rectified accordingly. Show details

A stainless steel French door fridge in a modern kitchen with white cabinetry.

Should I get a French door fridge?

A French door refrigerator has double doors that open up to a continuous fridge space and a freezer drawer at the bottom. Below we go through some pros and cons of French door fridges so you can see whether this type of refrigerator is right for your household.

Pros
Tend to have a large capacity.
Deeper and wider shelves that make it easier to store a greater amount of food.
Usually have adjustable shelves and many options for shelving configurations, so it's easier to keep your fridge contents organised.
Sleek and elegant design.
Often have lots of added features available.
Cons
Requires a significant amount of kitchen space, enough space to allow both fridge doors to open.
Their size means they're often less energy-efficient and more expensive to run (and more expensive to buy) than other types of fridges, such as top mount fridges.
Often offer limited freezer space.

How much space does a French door fridge offer?

French door fridges are large and offer lots of storage space. These types of fridges are ideal for households of at least 4+ people.

French door fridges usually have larger door bins than regular fridges, and their increased width makes it easier to store wide dishes or platters in them.

What fridge capacity do I need?

The capacity of your fridge should largely be determined by how many people will be using the fridge. The following table offers a rough fridge size guide based on the number of people in your household.

Number of people in householdRecommended fridge volume
1 to 2 people250 to 380L
3 to 4 people350 to 540L
5 or more people500+L

How long should a French door fridge last?

Like most other fridges, a French door refrigerator should last around 10 to 20 years. If any problems occur while under warranty, then it’s best to contact the manufacturer.

However, if your fridge is not still under warranty, then in the long run, it may be more worthwhile to purchase a new fridge rather than spend a large amount of money trying to fix the problem.

How much does a French door fridge cost?

French door fridges don’t come cheap but aren’t as expensive as bottom mount fridges. You won’t find a French door fridge for under $1000. For a French door fridge, you'll need to consider paying between at least $1000, and around $10,000.

For the price you’re paying for a fridge in this price range, you want it to be able to cater to more than just a couple of people - and luckily it does.

Other things to consider when choosing a French door fridge

Size

It's important to measure the fridge cavity in your kitchen so you know the limits of what you can buy. When choosing a fridge, measure the sides, top and rear and allow for some room so there's space for the motor to vent heat.

You should also measure your front door and any hallways you need to take your fridge through, so you can actually get your new fridge into your kitchen.

Features

Look out for features that can make your fridge easier, safer or more efficient to use.

  • Wine rack: This dedicated space makes it easier to store bottles of wine, rather than precariously stacking them on top of other things in your fridge.
  • Display panel: A display panel lets you easily adjust the temperature and other settings.
  • Water and ice dispenser: If you want cool drinks on demand, an in-built water and ice dispenser can make it easier to feel refreshed.
  • Smart fridge: Many newer fridges offer smart features like Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Viewing window: This lets you peek inside the fridge without actually opening the fridge door.
  • Frost free: These have built-in technology to prevent the buildup of ice, usually by defrosting itself after a set amount of time.
  • Door alarm: This will sound if you've left the fridge or freezer door open for a set amount of time. Some fridges let you choose the amount of time that needs to pass before the alarm sounds.
  • Automatic door opening: A feature on some premium models, automatic door opening lets you also open and close your fridge without your hands, such as with a voice command.
  • Child proofing: Different fridges can have different child proofing features, such as a lockable medicine cabinet or a child lock on the fridge's temperature controls.

Energy consumption

Given their large size, French door fridges tend to use more electricity than smaller fridges, so it's important to only buy the size you need and no bigger.

Due to factors like improvements in fridge technology, higher regulations and the worsening of insulation over time, newer fridge models tend to be more energy efficient than old ones.

The energy star rating is also helpful to compare relative energy efficiency.

Finish

These types of fridges are available in a variety of colours and finishes, so you can choose an option that suits your kitchen cabinetry, design, countertops and appliances.

Some finishes include:

  • Stainless steel: This popular finish is sleek and modern, but can be prone to showing fingerprints and marks. You can, however, find models with fingerprint-resistant finishes.
  • Black: Black doesn't show fingerprints as much and is easy to keep clean. You can also get variants like matte black or black stainless steel fridges.
  • White: White fridges have a crisp look and tend to be a bit cheaper, and don't show fingerprints as much.
  • Coloured fridges: Bright-coloured fridges, such as retro style fridges, are becoming more popular as a statement piece in the kitchen. Keep in mind that a fridge, particularly one that's bought new, is a long-term investment, so many trends may come and go in the time that you have with it.
