Deciding you’re ready to purchase a new refrigerator is easy, but deciding which refrigerator to welcome into your kitchen can be slightly more daunting.
Wandering through aisles of refrigerators can begin to feel overwhelming, and scouring the web often produces similar results. To give you an idea of what’s out there in your price range, we’ve tracked down three highly rated refrigerators representing three different price ranges.
Highly rated refrigerators
These three sleek-looking refrigerators boast energy-saving lighting, food preserving features, and lots of space.
- Maytag French-door bottom-freezer. $2,999. Behind the french doors of this stainless steel refrigerator, you’ll find a roomy and well-lit interior. The LED lights provide bright, white, interior illumination that casts your food in a more natural light that is energy efficient. If long lines at the grocery store cause your fridge-bound foods to get a little too toasty, the PowerCold feature in this refrigerator can quickly get cold foods cold again.
- KitchenAid 25.8 Cu. Ft. 36" Multi-Door Freestanding Refrigerator with Platinum Interior Design. $3,999. This feature-packed refrigerator, which comes in black or regular stainless steel, boasts a five-door configuration (an industry first). Soft close drawers, a three-tier freezer drawer, and herb storage are just a few of this refrigerator’s impressive features. Its Preserva Food Care System can help keep food fresh for longer, while two Produce Preservers handle the task of delaying over-ripening. The unit also comes with an air filter that can help stave off odors. Consumers love the elegance of the platinum gray walls and the undershelf LED lighting inside this unique-looking KitchenAid refrigerator.
- LG LTCS20220S. $1,049. French door refrigerators may be having a moment, but this refrigerator has a top-mount freezer that isn’t lacking in space. At 30” wide, its top freezer is one of the largest in its category. Among other features: two humidity controlled crisper drawers, a full-width pantry door, and rear panels of LED lighting. Aesthetically, it’s more modern looking than your run-of-the-mill top-mount freezer refrigerators. Contoured doors give this refrigerator (which comes in black, white, or stainless) a sleek looking appearance.
