American Fridge Freezer Buying Guide

If you’re looking to buy a new fridge freezer, in American Style Fridge Freezers, add a stylish touch to any kitchen.

American style fridge freezers are different from most tall fridge freezers as they feature dual doors that open from the middle outwards. This is why they’re sometimes referred to as ‘side by side American fridge freezers’ or a ‘double door fridge freezer’ its doors open out in the middle, with the freezer compartment on the left, the fridge on the right. These are most beneficial because you can place normally used chilled and frozen foods at an appropriate height level, making life much easier for busy families.

American fridge freezers are an excellent choice because of their size and attractive features. Our guide will lead you through everything from the different types and the best features you are looking for.

Two-door is also known as side by side, and it will have both a standing fridge and freezer compartment. The term American-style brings up to a large, double-width fridge freezer with two doors.


A French-style fridge freezer and three doors are similar but laid out like a wardrobe; it has three large freezer drawers beneath the main doors.


The four-door setup has two big double doors at the fridge’s top and a little smaller double door at the fridge’s bottom.
