Best Refrigerators of 2022: French Door Fridge

Samsung 23 Cu. Ft. Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Stee French Door Counter-Depth Refrigerator With CoolSelect Pantry

Samsung French Door Refrigerator with CoolSelect Pantry
As one of the most popular styles in years, the French door fridge has dominated the must-have list for dream kitchens for years. This Samsung counter-depth model brings the best tech to your home with a shining stainless steel facade and in-door water and ice dispenser. When you open both (or just one) door, a full 15.7 cubic feet of refrigerated space greets users along with two crisper compartments and a CoolSelect pantry drawer. Choose between three temperatures within this bottom bin, like chill and defrost. Keep in mind that this shining stainless steel model is counter-depth as well, meaning it hugs closer to your counters (and sticks out into your kitchen less for a cleaner look). TwinCooling Plus technology helps to keep all of your ingredients and snacks cold, while WiFi connectivity allows users to connect to their appliance at any time.
