Best French Door Refrigerators of 2021

Double-Doorway Style

There's nothing quite like opening a French door refrigerator. Placing both hands on each handle and pulling them open to reveal bright LED lights is an experience in itself, and one that you can't find elsewhere. These models actually make getting up to grab a snack feel like less of a chore, and more like a futuristic experience.
Whether you're replacing an existing refrigerator or putting together a new kitchen altogether, these double doors are worth your consideration. And the next-gen models below are designed with exciting new features in mind. Whether you're looking for an LG refrigerator, Samsung refrigerators, or KitchenAid refrigerators, you'll find your French fave at Abt. Check out some of our experts' favorite picks for the best French door refrigerators of 2021.

Best French Door Refrigerators with Craft Ice Maker

LG French Door Refrigerator 24 Cu. Ft. PrintProof Stainless Steel Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Counter-Depth With Craft Ice Maker - LRFXC2416S

LG French Door Refrigerator 24 Cu. Ft. PrintProof Stainless Steel Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Counter-Depth With Craft Ice Maker - LRFXC2416S
Anyone who's lived without an icemaker knows just how crucial they are for everyday use and special occasions. "But craft ice?" you may ask. "What does that even mean?" For LG refrigerators, craft ice involves creating large, circular ice spheres that are extremely long-lasting. These are perfect for cocktail parties and can prevent the dilution of hard liquors, soda, and other beverages. And with the dual ice maker, you'll always have regular cubed ice ready to go.
The counter-depth fridge is designed with style in mind. These built-in silhouettes help create a unified kitchen with a streamlined look. Fingerprint-proof stainless steel completes the ambiance with no fear of smudging or lingering prints. Plus, a wide profile makes up for lost depth in the built-in frame.
Also features: Dual ice maker, entry cooling technology, measured fill water dispenser, WiFi-enabled, ENERGY STAR qualified. Total Capacity (cu. ft.) : 23.5 Refrigerator Capacity (cu. ft.) : 15.4 Freezer Capacity (cu. ft.) : 8.1

Best French Door Refrigerators with The Most Storage

LG French Door Refrigerator PrintProof Stainless Steel 30 Cu. Ft. Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Door-In-Door With Craft Ice Maker - LRFDS3016S

LG French Door Refrigerator PrintProof Stainless Steel 30 Cu. Ft. Smart Wi-Fi Enabled Door-In-Door With Craft Ice Maker - LRFDS3016S
A broader-shouldered relative to the fridge above, this model features all the same perks and even more space. With counter-depth fridges, you tend to lose depth in return for that built-in style. But this LG refrigerator manages to win a full 30 inches of depth, and a storage capacity of nearly 24 cubic feet. That means more space to stash party platters, ingredients for meal prep, leftover boxes, produce, and more.
This appliance is WiFi-enabled, too, meaning it uses LG's ThinQ technology to communicate with your devices and match your preferences. Adjust the amount of Craft Ice you need before a gathering. Alternatively, your fridge can analyze habits all on its own. It can anticipate your ice and energy needs, knowing just when you're going to show up for extra ice and a water bottle refill, and when to save energy for the evening.
Also features: Dual ice maker, Craft Ice, entry cooling technology, measured fill water dispenser, WiFi-enabled, ENERGY STAR qualified. Total Capacity (cu. ft.) : 29.7 Refrigerator Capacity (cu. ft.) : 19.3 Freezer Capacity (cu. ft.) : 10.4

Best Door-In-Door French Door Refrigerators

GE French-Door Refrigerator Stainless Steel With Door In Door - GFD28GYNFS

GE French-Door Refrigerator Stainless Steel With Door In Door - GFD28GYNFS
The most notable design element of this GE refrigerator? The doors. Well, not the French one, but the one behind it. The door-in-door design helps to keep your favorite snacks or drinks easily accessible. With the touch of a button, this compartment pops open, all while keeping the rest of your fridge enclosed, saving energy and time. (If the entire fridge opens, that's a loss of cool air and power. That makes this closet-like tech great for snackers and soda drinkers.)
The folks at GE know that you do have to open the fridge all the way, too. That's why they created Turbo Cool and Turbo Freeze settings. These jets of cool air restore your fridge to normal temperatures after the entryway has been open for a while, like after a particularly arduous fridge cleanout. Separate cooling systems in the refrigerator and freezer help to keep food fresh, too.
Also features: Fingerprint-resistant stainless steel, space-saving ice maker, optional second ice maker, entryway alarm, Sabbath mode capable. 27.8 Cu. Ft. Total Capacity 18.6 Cu. Ft. Fresh Food Capacity 9.17 Cu. Ft. Freezer Capacity

Best French Door Refrigerators for Budgets

GE French-Door Refrigerator ENERGY STAR 18.6 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Counter-Depth - GWE19JSLSS

GE French-Door Refrigerator ENERGY STAR 18.6 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Counter-Depth - GWE19JSLSS
The dual-doorway refrigerator design is often seen in high-profile homes and celebrity kitchens (and doesn't always work for lower budgets). This GE ENERGY STAR qualified model brings all the counter-depth design you want at a lower cost, and with lower utility prices too. And with everything you love about dual-opening style.
As soon as you open this fridge, you'll notice an effective new use of space with layered shelving. That means tall bottles and stacks of food can stay together, while shorter foods and condiments can live in smaller areas. Multiple side storage bins make it easier than ever to fit everything you need, effortlessly.
Also features: Internal water dispenser, icemaker, Turbo Cool and Turbo Freeze settings, water filtration, entryway alarm, and temperature display. 18.6 Cu. Ft. Total Capacity 13.59 Cu. Ft. Refrigerator Capacity 5.01 Cu. Ft. Freezer Capacity

Best French Door Refrigerators For Entertainers

Samsung French Door Refrigerator 27 Cu. Ft. Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel With External Water & Ice Dispenser - RF27T5201SR/AA

Samsung French Door Refrigerator 27 Cu. Ft. Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel With External Water & Ice Dispenser - RF27T5201SR/AA
There are a few things every host needs before a party starts, and they all start with a full-fledged fridge. One, the hors d'oeuvres. Stash dishes of prepped deviled eggs, charcuterie boards, and fruit bowls across the shelves and bins in this large capacity refrigerator. Two, beverages. Keep bottles and cans cool in the side bins and shelves, and replace them with fresh ones as guests arrive. And finally, ice. You'll need lots of ice, whether you're hosting a birthday luncheon, a New Year's Eve bash, or date night.
That's good, because this Samsung refrigerator can hold up to 4.2 pounds of ice. For small to medium-sized gatherings, you'll be able to use just the ice you have already in the freezer. There's no need to send anyone out to the store to buy huge bags (unless you're having extended family over). For larger parties, it's always a good idea to have extra ice on hand. Thankfully, the deep freezer allows you to stash multiple bags of ice for hotter days and more attendees. And with the sophisticated ice and water dispenser, you'll be able to fit all kinds of drinkware under the dispenser.
Other features: Fingerprint-resistant stainless steel, Winner of the U.S. EPA's 2020 ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award, Sabbath Mode, and ADA compliant. 27 Cu. Ft. Total Capacity 18.4 Cu. Ft. Refrigerator Capacity 8.6 Cu. Ft. Freezer Capacity

Best French Door Refrigerators for Counter-Depth Kitchens

LG Door-In-Door Counter-Depth Refrigerator 22 Cu. Ft. PrintProof Stainless Steel Smart Wi-Fi Enabled InstaView - LFXC22596S

LG Door-In-Door Counter-Depth Refrigerator 22 Cu. Ft. PrintProof Stainless Steel Smart Wi-Fi Enabled InstaView - LFXC22596S
With the number of next-gen features hiding behind this stainless steel exterior, it's a wonder anyone's groceries can fit inside. And they do, thanks to nearly 22 cubic feet of storage capacity. But the true show stopper for this counter-depth LG fridge is the InstaView door-in-door technology. The tinted glass panel stays dark when not in use, and lights up with two knocks to reveal what's inside. Keep your favorite beverages and snacks here for easy access to your fridge, or get a look at what's inside without even opening the appliance. This helps to prevent any unnecessary loss of cool air from opening the fridge.
The sleek, dark panel contrasts with the shining silver steel for a high-tech design that can class up any kitchen. The LG refrigerator brings a built-in aesthetic to any space, aligning perfectly with existing cabinetry and other appliances for a synchronous look. And thanks to an easy-to-use ice and water dispenser, the device doesn't compromise function for form. A smudge-resistant facade ensures you won't have to worry about buffing your appliances every time someone uses the fridge, too.
Other features: LoDecibel™ Quiet Operation, ENERGY STAR® Qualified, WiFi-enabled, Dual Ice Maker. Total Capacity (cu. ft.) : 21.9 Refrigerator Capacity (cu. ft.) : 14.6 Freezer Capacity (cu. ft.) : 7.3
