The need for a good refrigerator is never more acute than during the sweltering summer months. Over the years fridges in India have evolved a lot to meet the needs of the modern consumer. Among the latest trends, French door refrigerators have caught on amongst the Indian consumers – hence we’ve put together a comprehensive list of everything you need to know about French door refrigerators in India.
French Door Refrigerators: Origin to Present Day Models
To help you with your decision to purchase a French door refrigerator, let us first understand what they are and how they have evolved over the years to meet the growing market demand. Traditionally speaking, French doors refrigerators had two doors on the top portion, constructed like a side by side fridge, which operates much like a French door, while the bottom portion was equipped with a pull-out drawer. Originally the upper section with the double doors was meant to be the fridge while the bottom half would function as a freezer.
Over time, the models have evolved and now the bottom part instead of having just one pull out drawer, has two. Some newer models have even done away with the pull out drawer system and only have two doors. This way if you can access the stuff in the fridge and the freezer independently without affecting the cooling in the other section.
Features & Benefits

This makes it very easy to access your commonly used compartments without having to bend or stretch over. Moreover according to most consumers, another beloved feature of French Door refrigerators is that most models feature automatic defrosting systems, therefore reducing your burden of having to manually defrost the freezer at regular intervals. Additionally, they also feature a deodorizer that helps to keep the fruits and vegetables fresh and odour free for a longer duration.

This way it helps to keep the temperature loss in the main part of the fridge to a minimum. French-door and four-door versions save space with narrow door swings for the upper fridge and in case of four-door models, two separate freezer doors below.
