French-Door Refrigerators Prices, Reviews and Specifications

     
 


Like bottom-freezer refrigerators, French-door refrigerators place the refrigerator at the bottom. However, unlike conventional bottom-freezer models, on a French-door refrigerator the top fresh foods section has narrow side-by-side doors. These are typically the most expensive type of refrigerator, but can be considerably larger than other layouts.
