Best French-Door Refrigerators From Consumer Reports' Tests
This group of stellar performers includes great picks for value, capacity, aesthetics, and more
Have sleek French-door refrigerators been catching your eye in the appliance aisle? If so, you’re in good company. These stylish models have become the go-to configuration for consumers looking to upgrade. They’re generally bigger and come loaded with more features than most top- or bottom-freezers.
On French-door models, you’ll commonly find—and, indeed, all of our top-rated-models feature—an icemaker, digital controls, spillproof shelves, gallon-sized bins on the doors, and more. It’s no surprise that our latest survey reveals that French-door refrigerators account for nearly two-thirds of new fridges purchased by Consumer Reports members; no other fridge configuration comes close. (Side-by-side refrigerators get the next largest share, at only 20 percent.)
And as a category, they perform among the best in CR’s lab. We test French-door refrigerators in three- and four-door configurations from 21 manufacturers. Our regularly updated ratings currently include more than 100 French-door models.
