The Latest in French Door Fridges

What is a French Door Refrigerator?

French door refrigerators have two double doors that open outwards away from each other at the top of the unit and one or more compartments underneath with their own separate doors. French door fridges are great compared to other kinds of fridges because they offer a diverse range of features such as specialised, adjustable drawers and compartments to help you organise and store your food better.

Features and Design

French door fridges are also popular for their sleek, modern design and functionality.  Some of the best features are the wide interior space (great for entertaining), easy access self-closing freezer drawers, fingerprint-proof finish, spill-safe shelves and odour minimisers.

Temperature and humidity controlled compartments allow you to separate items by their climate needs so they can be stored in the optimal environment, helping them stay fresher for longer.  Most French door fridges also have water and ice dispensers.

Higher-end models sometimes have door-in-door access which allows you to store even more items in a separate compartment within the door. Some of these units feature convenient electronic controls on the front.
