French Door Refrigerators FAQ

French door refrigerators have many benefits but are renowned for their spacious interior and organizational features. They provide easier access to frequently used items, so you don't need to open all doors to grab things quickly. If you’re looking to organize your food and drinks, so you don't lose any time digging through a messy fridge, French doors are for you.

Unlike other types of refrigerators, a french door refrigerator tends to use less energy and can maintain a more consistent internal temperature. By opening just one side of the door, you can use half as much energy to keep food fresher longer and help minimize energy loss from temperature swings.

The term "french door" means to have a door that has two sections. Just like traditional french doors, a french door refrigerator has two refrigerator doors on top. This is different from a single-door refrigerator which has one door on the top and a freezer drawer below it. A french door fridge usually comes with a freezer drawer underneath that can be accessed by pulling down either of the doors above.
