More About Refrigerator Reviews

You can get the traditional freezer-on-top style, with a smaller freezer above the main fridge. Or you can go with the reverse, the freezer-on-bottom. You can also choose a side-by-side model, with a full length freezer section beside a full length refrigerator. These models often look better, and in many cases have more freezer space, but some of the smaller ones actually have less space in both the freezer and the fridge than the traditional styles. There are also French door refrigerators, which have two doors that open to the sides instead of a single door, as well as a freezer underneath with a door of its own.

You can get various colors and finishes, stainless steel being one of the most popular right now. Modeled after commercial refrigerators and other commercial appliances. Many people like this look.

Some models are even available with panels that will match the rest of your kitchen cabinets. This is generally available with counter depth refrigerators, which are designed to blend into the cabinets. Or if you’re going for more of a retro look, there are plenty of fridges built to look like something you would find in a kitchen in the 40’s or 50’s.

Specialized Refrigerators

You can even find specialized refrigerators, such as bar fridges or wine coolers. These have very specific uses, but can be complementary to your main refrigerator. Their compact size lets you put them in places you wouldn’t otherwise be able to fit a fridge.

Most major brands, such as Maytag, Kenmore, Amana and Frigidaire, have a fairly wide range of models to choose from. The prices also have a pretty wide range, starting at $200-$300 and moving up to as high as several thousand dollars.

The amount you spend is partially dependent on the size of the refrigerator. You can get things such as ice makers, water filters, and other extras. Some models over the past few years have even included internet access through a built-in display in the door!
