Side By Side Refrigerators

Find the Perfect Side by Side Fridge Freezer for Your Needs!

Side by side refrigerators are called as such because the refrigerator and the freezer are positioned next to each other -- literally, side by side. These refrigerators are perfect for those kitchens where you need maximum capacity, but maybe don’t have the space for a wide door radius.

Many of these units come with in-door water and ice dispensers. Be sure to look for models that have a filtered water system to get the best quality tasting water and ice. Although these features are great to have, keep in mind that they also take up a lot of interior space.

  • Tip: If you need a refrigerator with a lot of width, a side by side is not for you as both the refrigerator and freezer sections are quite narrow. Instead you should consider a French Door Refrigerator.

Three Key Features

There are a few key features you'll want to look for when shopping for a Side by Side Refrigerator:

  1. Capacity: The capacity of most side by side fridges is hampered not only by the narrowness of the compartments themselves, but also by some of the features you choose. Everything from the water dispenser to the interior light can take away from the space. Consider looking for those models that feature Split Shelving or Adjustable Shelving. Also look for those models that have Gallon Size Door Capacity so you can store your gallons of milk and juice in the door rather than utilizing all of your space on the top shelves.

  2. Lighting: It may seem a little silly, but there were a number of models that we found that only had a top light. It made it very uncomfortable to see throughout the fridge. Always look for those models that have multiple lighting sources and especially those models that have the new and bright LED Light Bulbs.

  3. Easy to Replace Water Filters: Even though we discussed the importance of high quality water filters above, they also must be easy to replace. Most are nowadays, but there are still a few that have you reach around the back side of the fridge to access the filter unit (none of those models are recommended here by the way). You should have an average lifespan of about six months on most refrigerator water filters.
