French door refrigerators feature side-by-side doors on its top half and a freezer drawer on the bottom. From Bosch to Haier, Whirlpool to LG, all major appliance makers now offer French door refrigerators. They are increasingly popular among those who like chic appearances and spaciousness. We’ve selected our five favorite French door models based on their practicality, convenience and amenities.

This Samsung 36-inch counter-depth French door refrigerator is packed with storage features and adjustable cooling technology giving you plenty of flexibility. We especially like Samsung’s signature FlexZone compartment, which allows you to use its roomy 22.5-cubic foot capacity as you need, whether its extra refrigerator space, quick chill, soft freeze or hard freeze. Power Cool and Power Freeze functions allow you to cool down drinks and other items rapidly with the push of a button. This Energy Star refrigerator also shines in its flexible glass Spillproof shelving. The full-width top refrigerator’s collapsible split shelves can be endlessly configured to accommodate extra-tall pitchers or cumbersome main dishes.

Another great French door model is GE’s Cafe Series 36-inch refrigerator which brings coffee shop luxuries right to your home kitchen. Making freshness a priority, TwinChill evaporators prevent odor contamination between the refrigerator and freezer. We liked the extra-deep external ice and purified water dispenser, which is outfitted with an advanced water filtration system that targets and reduces trace particles from tap water. Dispense hot or cold water in exact amounts with the Precise Fill function. Also, the dispenser’s digital interface allows you to upload photos to the LCD screen for a personal touch.

A favorite full-sized unit for RV owners is the 33-inch wide, counter-depth Samsung French door refrigerator. This Samsung model can easy match to your decor, as it is available in stainless steel, platinum, black and white finishes. Fans of this refrigerator like the intensely bright LED lighting that prevents items being forgotten in the back. We like the impressively fast interior ice maker and roomy ice bin, which are great for keeping you stocked during social events. The freezer features a Power Freeze setting, which is great for making frozen desserts. Similarly, the refrigerator boasts a Power Cool option to rapidly chill room temperature beverages.

With nearly 18 cubic feet of refrigerator storage, Whirlpool’s 36-inch wide French door model gives every member of the family space to store their go-to snacks and ingredients. Three of the six door bins are gallon storage, helping keep everyone hydrated. An external refrigerator drawer offers a flexible space for produce, easy to grab snacks, or a marinating main dish. The drawer beneath it provides 6.73 cubic feet of freezer space. Another reason to love this Whirlpool refrigerator is its bevy of high-tech features. The AccuChill temperature system measures humidity and responds to maintain the ideal conditions. An external filtered water and ice dispenser can be set to pour a measured amount of water, which is handy when you’re following a recipe.

The EnergyStar rated 36-inch counter-depth French door refrigerator by LG rounds out our list with its stylish appliance that conserves energy as well as kitchen space. We love the details that went into this model. Four split glass shelves offer maximum customization along with spill containing edges. Three crisper drawers and a full-width cold storage drawer will help keep you organized. Eight door bins, several large enough for gallon storage make retrieving condiments and beverages a breeze. LG also stands by their quality with a 10-year warranty on their linear compressor.
