Smart Refrigerator Reviews

Here are the Top 5 Smart Refrigerators on the market for 2020

We wanted to provide a number of Smart Refrigerator Reviews as this is by far the hottest trend over the last 10 years.  We've just updated the list for 2020, so be sure to sift through to find the best model.

We narrowed down the list to only the very Best Reviewed and Best Rated Refrigerators.

Smart Refrigerators are more than just a fad, they're here to stay.  So, we've tried to identify those models and brands that have the features that are worth paying for and avoiding those that don't.

There are so many different technologies.  Some are AWESOME and some are frankly, just ridiculous.  That said, Smart Refrigerators have made some huge strides over the past 3-5 years.  So let's get to the list!

    Tip: If you don't find what you are looking for today, check back again soon as we update this list often.

What to Look for in a Smart Refrigerator

Although Smart Refrigerators can be a nice luxury item, sometimes, your storage space is sacrificed in the name of technology. 

You need to take into consideration how many people are in your family and just how much storage space you might need.  Typically, a 25 cu. ft. interior is enough for a family of four.  But your needs may vary depending on how often you cook at home and what you cook at home.


Beyond connecting to your in-home WiFi, you'll also want to find out what the compatibility is with other Home Helper systems.  If you use Google Home versus the Amazon Echo ("Alexa"), you may want to make sure it's compatible with your particular preference.

Some, like Samsung, come with their own systems (Bixby).  Just be aware there are choices out there and your first choice may not be your best choice.


A refrigerator with a giant screen may not necessarily be the best option for your highly designed kitchen space.  Some prefer more of a built-in refrigerator look rather than something that looks like it has it's own TV unit (as many Smart Refrigerators do).  So, be sure to take this into consideration when you look to purchase your Smart Refrigerator. 

Unnecessary Options

Consider whether a Smart Refrigerator is even the right choice for your family.  There are a number of cool features, but are they important enough for you to pay hundreds, sometimes thousands more. 

It's great that the refrigerator will keep track of your food inventory, but do you need a unit that screens your favorite movies on your refrigerator door? 

Just think through the options that each has to offer and whether or not it's something you need, or a feature that seems over the top.
