What Is A French Door Refrigerator?

What is a French Door Refrigerator?

A popular modern style, French door refrigerators offer energy efficiency while bringing a distinctive contemporary look to any kitchen. The French door model features a bottom freezer, and a refrigerator with side-by-side doors on top. Many models include an additional storage drawer between the refrigerator and freezer. Some models feature side-by-side doors on the bottom freezer as well, but it's more common to find a drawer freezer on a French door refrigerator. Dimensions vary from model to model, and depend on the refrigerator's capacity.

What Are the Benefits of a French Door Refrigerator?

French door refrigerators provide energy efficiency as well as user convenience. Of course, any refrigerator with a bottom-freezer configuration is extremely energy-efficient, but French doors on the refrigerator add another level of efficiency. The side-by-side doors open one at a time, minimizing the escape of cool air and conserving even more energy. While French door refrigerator sizes vary, all models provide a large block of storage space for great versatility in accommodating large and wide items. The side-by-side French doors are small and don't require much swing space, which makes the French door refrigerator an ideal choice for depth-limited kitchens.
