February 5th, 2017 | 2 min. read

French doors have become increasingly popular due to their unique style, they also offer more cubic footage in the refrigerator and less in the freezer than the side by side refrigerator. 

They outsell side by side refrigerators by about 13-1, and every company manufactures a French door refrigerator including GE, LG, Samsung, Electrolux, Frigidaire, Whirlpool, and their subsidiaries KitchenAid, Maytag and Amana\among others.

There are literally hundreds of French door refrigerators and now available in 4 and 5 door configurations. We will show you the 10 best to consider now, both in regular and counter depth.  

You can simply call us at 617-825-9253. We sell almost every brand and product. Here are the best sellers. 

Regular Depth Refrigerators  

Whirpool WRF535SMBM - $1,529

Whirlpool has taken a page out of Samsung and LG' playbook  by promoting by the holidays. There is nothing wrong with this refrigerator at 25 cubic foot with icemaker.

KitchenAid KRFF305ESS - $1,799

Though similar to Whirlpool, Jenn-Air, and Maytag, this KitchenAid is more attractive with better handles and adjustable shelves. This refrigerator is 25 cubic feet. 

Counter Depth French Door Refrigerators

Samsung RF18HFENBSR - $999

The most popular selling counter depth refrigerator under 36" wide. It will not give you a whole lot of extras, but at 1099 it also the least expensive french door counter depth on the market.

KitchenAid KRFC300ESS - $1,709


It is interesting to see a premium brand so inexpensive.  It is on the smaller side at 20 cubic feet. However, it compensates because it can be packaged with some decent appliances. 

Samsung RF28HFEDBSR- $1599 


This is a very interesting refrigerator with dual cooling, meaning the moist air of the refrigerator does not mix with the dry air of the freezer. So, your food will taste more fresh, especially in the freezer. 

Samsung RF28K9070SR - $2,199 

This is another innovative product from Samsung with four doors. The bottom right door can be converted from freezer to refrigerator and vice versa. Click on the link to learn more.  

Jenn-Air JFC2290REM - $2399frurygegsjwc8.png

Jenn-Air was the first upscale counter depth French door on the market about 10 years ago. It is still a decent refrigerator with an interior icemaker. This refrigerator is also part of our best-selling package. This model now has LED lights and concealed hinges. 

Final Thoughts

Many of the refrigerators are almost identical like Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, and Jenn-Air. Frigidaire is surprisingly reliable. Samsung has excellent features at a relatively inexpensive price.

Counter depth is a good option especially for remodeling, because it does not protrude from the cabinets.

You may want to look at the refrigerator as part of an overall package as Bosch and Frigidaire have traditionally strong packages discounts.
