Best Refrigerator for Keeping Food Fresh
Good Housekeeping Institute did a review for The Best Refrigerators for Keeping Food Fresh and these are the models recommended by their Kitchen Appliances and Technology Lab for every budget level. Here are their Top Lab Picks:
Best Top Freezer Refrigerator
Reviews.com selected “LG Electronics LTCS24223S as the Best Top Freezer Refrigerator. When it comes to basic, top-freezer-style refrigerators, what you see is what you get. While you might see a couple of color options (stainless steel, white, and black are common), you’re unlikely to find any kind of external water or ice dispenser — and some models don’t include an ice maker at all. Top freezers are a good choice economically, but if you’re building a state-of-the-art kitchen, their plain designs might not blend in with other high-tech equipment”.
Best Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Reviews.com selected “Whirlpool WRB322DMBM as the Best Bottom Freezer Refrigerator. Unlike the two-door layout of top freezers, most bottom freezers have one door for the refrigerator and one large drawer pull-out for the freezer. This style of freezer makes it difficult to see and remember that there is food sitting at the bottom of the bin, and it can be tricky to rummage through layers of frozen food just to check for a pint of ice-cream. Even though most models include baskets inside the freezer to help organize your frozen food, you’ll still have place everything strategically in order to see it”.
Best French Door Refrigerator
Reviews.com selected “Whirlpool WRV986FDEM as the Best French Door Refrigerator. Because French door refrigerators are trending right now, even a basic model will be more expensive than a great quality top-freezer model. French door refrigerators are also typically more expensive to run, as they frequently use more electricity than refrigerators of a similar size but different design”.
Best Side-by-Side Refrigerator
Reviews.com selected “GE GSE25HSHSS as the Best Side-by-Side Refrigerator. Side-by-side refrigerators don’t give exactly even amounts of space to the refrigerator and the freezer — the refrigerator section will still be larger. However, while there is more freezer space in this style of fridge than any other, this space is somewhat tall and skinny. Depending on the height of the shelves in your freezer, you might struggle to store a full-size pizza box”.
