Why trust us?

We spent a whole day surfing through the many technology websites to look at what they suggested as the best double door fridges.

Next, we moved to Amazon and Flipkart to see what refrigerators were the best sellers. When we last reviewed refrigerators we found that a BEE 4- star fridge consumes less electricity than a BEE 5-star one. Click here to read more about it. So when we started shortlisting double door fridges, we kept 4- star as the minimum consideration.

How we selected?

To find the best refrigerator we started our search by looking through what other websites suggest as the best. Here we picked some of the suggested picks.

Our next step involved picking the highest rated and reviewed products on Amazon and Flipkart. Here we selected products that had two doors, minimum of 4-star BEE rating and inverter technology. After reading through many customer reviews we finally got two refrigerators that we decided would be our best picks.

Best double door refrigerator in detail

Pros:

  • Spacious 260 Litre capacity

  • BEE 4-star rating for good energy savings

  • Runs without a stabilizer

  • Can work with inverters as well

  • Innovative smart diagnosis feature

  • Can withstand voltages from 100-290V

  • Frost-free cooling

  • 1-year product + 10-year compressor warranty

​Cons:

  • Not convertible (dual refrigerator)

  • No freezer light

At 4 feet  8 inches, the LG refrigerator is an imposing thing with a metallic finish and large door handles. You have a large compartment for the freezer and doors with enough space for ice cream packs and even a large chicken/ turkey.  The bottom refrigerator compartment is also spacious with a large vegetable tray and spacious door pockets which can easily take 2-liter bottles. You get three tempered glass trays that you can place in different positions based on the size of the utensils you want to place on them.

While the bottom compartment is similar in terms of door pockets and trays to the single door fridges, the real addition is the much larger freezer area. Talking about the freezer there is a really cool feature present here called as the "Double twist ice tray". This feature lets you fill water into it and then using the knobs provided you can turn the tray to dispense ice cubes into the bottom tray - all this within the freezer. 

To ensure uniform cooing throughout the fridge LG makes use of multiple air vent that let out the cool air. Furthermore, there is also a vent present on the door to ensure air reaches all the corners of the fridge.

Other cool features are the fact that the refrigerator can function without the need for a stabilizer, furthermore, it can even work on an inverter.  Another feature that is present on LG machines is the smart Diagnosis feature whereby if you find any issue in the functioning of the machine you can use a smartphone app to find out what is wrong with it and then have the call center fix that issue for you if possible (or send someone over). You also get a nifty little led light mounted below the freezer that shines light uniformly into the refrigerator compartment.

The LG Double Door fridge also earns a 4-star BEE rating which should give you good energy savings. BEE claims the refrigerator should consume around 194 units in a year. The reason why it is efficient is because of the Inverter technology. You might have heard about Inverter technology in our article titled: Best Air Conditioner. Inverter compressors run at different speed instead of the regular compressor which basically switch on and off to maintain the cooling. This enables them to run more efficiently and thus consuming less electricity.

With 4.3 stars and 299 customers reviews the LG refrigerator was well received by the consumers who loved the cooling performance of the machine, its low power consumption, and sleek design. The only complaints we could find was the slow delivery and installation as the seller hadn't informed LG about the purchase, the lack of freezer light and non-convertible design of the fridge.

LG offers a 1-year product warranty and 10 years of warranty on the compressor. Installation of the fridge is done by the company/ e-commerce personnel and LG offers door-step service for any issues.

With its spacious compartments, efficient cooling, good build quality and decent price of around Rs.25,000, the LG GL-I292RPZL is one of the best double door refrigerators in India.

  • Handless doors look sleek

The Samsung RT28M3424S8/HL is one cool looking refrigerator with a metal front and hidden door handles. It is truly designed for the modern home. Also, present on the front is a digital control panel with which you adjust the interior temperature and toggle the Power cool feature, more on that later. This makes controlling the fridge easier without the hassle of opening it.

In terms of capacity, the Samsung is 253 Litres which is a little lower than the LG's 260 liters. The Samsung too runs on Inverter technology which makes it run very efficiently and earning it, its 4-star BEE rating. Samsung includes the Power Cool feature which is of great convenience as you can place anything in the fridge and then activate the feature from the control panel and the fridge will increase its cooling to help cool it faster. Think of this as a quick burst of cold air to cool a warm bottle instantly.  You also get an easy sliding shelf that lets you reach for utensils placed at the back of the shelf very easily without disturbing the other utensils. Another neat little feature is the door alarm which starts buzzing if the refrigerator door is open for more than 2 minutes, but sadly the door doesn't have any locking system like the LG.

Apart from this, the Samsung is very similar to our LG best pick, it has pretty much the same features as well. Both refrigerators have stabilizer free operation and both can work on inverters, both feature multiple air vents, tempered glass shelves/ trays, they have a lot of space in the doors and trays to keep big bottles and utensils and both have the cool twist ice tray feature to make and dispense ice cubes easily.

With 4.4 stars and 100 customers reviews the Samsung refrigerator also was well received by the customers who praised it for its minimalistic design, effective cooling, low power consumption and the innovative twist ice maker. The complaints for the product were the lack of the door locking system, no light for the freezer, non-convertible design apart from the usual slow delivery and installation.

Like LG, Samsung also offers a 1-year product warranty and 10 years of warranty on the compressor. Installation of the fridge is done by the company/ e-commerce personnel and Samsung offers door-step service for any issues. 

With its minimalistic design, low power consumption, effective cooling and unique digital control panel the Samsung RT28M3424S8/HL is a superb refrigerator that is as good as our LG best pick.

​After-sales service

LG and Samsung both offer a 1-year product warranty and 10 years of warranty on the compressor. Installation of the fridge is done by the company/ e-commerce personnel and both offer door-step service for any issues.

Who are our best picks for?

Both the fridges are equally specced and have almost similar capacities (253 Litres and 260 liters) which should be more than sufficient for a family of four. To know about what size fridge to buy for your family look at the guide below:

  • A single person: 50-80 liters fridge

  • A family of 2-3 members: 150 Liters - 250 Liters

  • A family of 4-5 members: 250 Liters - 330 Liters

  • A family of more than 6 members:  350 Liters - 490 Liters

Both the refrigerators are also very similar in their specifications and feature both run on inverter technologies with 4-star BEE ratings. So it really is the about your budget and size preferences. But if you have kids at your place and you need the fridge to be locked then pick the LG one as the Samsung fridge lacks door locking facility.
