A double door fridge is a popular choice with buyers today as it offers the following advantages.

  1. Storage capacity

A double door fridge has a large storage capacity with bigger shelves to fit larger vessels and taller in-door shelves to place bottles in. This space will ensure you don’t need to be taking away a watermelon’s nutrition by cutting it just to be able to store it and that preserving that extra biryani never means less space for other foods. A double door fridge will easily fit the needs of a family of three to five members as its capacities range from 235 litres to 495 litres. This allows you to fit all your food into one unit compared to the single door options.

2. Separate freezer

 A double door fridge is designed to house the freezer in a separate unit with its own door. This implies that a double door fridge always has a larger freezer area to store your frozen veggies, fruits, meats and sauces. As the freezer is used less often and comes behind a separate door, this section is generally left unopened for longer periods helping to maintain the low temperature and preserving your stored foods.

3. Better cooling

 The main purpose of a fridge is to cool the food and to maintain hygiene and nutrition of the food stored. The best double door fridge from brands such as Samsung, LG, and Hitachi are engineered to be perfect for this purpose.

In a double door fridge, the cooling is uniform and since you will open only the door that is required, be the freezer or the normal, the cooling behind the unopened door is undisturbed. This saves you from wasting power. Further, each section of the fridge is cooled to its requirement without having to compromise because of any adjoining areas.

4. Frost-free 

The best double door refrigerators come with frost free technology, which does not allow the frost or ice to build around the shelves and side walls inside the fridge. This saves you from the added work to shut off the fridge and defrost the device while finding other places to store food while the fridge is shut off. Then there is the issue of the melting ice, which covers the floor and needs to be mopped up.

 For your convenience, here are the most popular double door fridges to help you make an ideal choice.
