Can anyone recommend a brand of french door style refrigerator that they are happy with? Have you discovered any cons to that style?

Mine is a GE Profile and I would recommend it. My only complaint is that it is not easy for me to get down into the back of the freezer to clean it, but that is due to my age and girth. The rest of the refrigerator is much easier to take apart and clean than any other I have owned.

I did look at the GE Profile; glad to know that you are happy with it. It's only after you have the fridge for a while that you find out what the cons are. Thanks for sharing the cleaning problem, I'll keep it in mind.

I have an Electrolux that I am very pleased with. The Stainless Steel is extremely easy to take care of and doesn't show fingerprints. They sent me the temperature controlled drawer for free because they had a lot in stock, it is great. Really like the freezer on the bottom.

Another vote for the GE Profile. Ours is french-door, with ice/water dispensor, freezer on the bottom. It replaced a Whirlpool side-by-side. Much nicer/easier now to find space for large dishes and pizza boxes.

Definitely read the reviews! We went with an LG french door with water and absolutely love it!!!

Many salesperson's told me stay with LG or Samsung.

I appreciate the recommendations, but it looks like a french door model is not going to fit in the space I have. I'm pretty disappointed and will continue to search for something with suitable dimensions, but it doesn't look promising. I will also look at 2 door freezer on the bottom models. Wish me luck.

LG French Door*Stainless Steel* 2 drawers, both freezer drawers.

No small children so I didn't want a snack drawer. I love's easy to keep clean. I use the stainles steel wipes about once a week and they look brand new....all the time!

Just purchased a new home in AZ and we bought a french door Frigidaire with no ice or water on the outside (I have had the water on the outside and it was always a mess). So ours has an icemaker inside and a bottom freezer. I have yet to find out if I like it.
