What are the Types of Refrigerators Available?

The modern refrigerator was invented in 1755 by a Scottish professor William Cullen; however, it had no practical application at the time. Today, refrigeration is an essential part of our society and has multiple types of applications. The 9 main categories are:

1. Bottom Freezer Refrigerators

Choose this if: You need the food and beverages you use most often within easy reach as well as if you need to store larger items such as pizza boxes or party trays.

2. Top-Freezer Refrigerators

Choose this if: You are an energy or cost conscious buyer.

3. Counter-depth Refrigerators

Choose this if: You are looking to save space as well as increase your kitchen’s style and aesthetic value.

4. French Door Refrigerators

Choose this if: You tend to use your refrigerator more than your freezer.

5. Side-by-side Refrigerators

Choose this if: You need easy access to both the freezer and refrigerator sections and if you use both the refrigerator and freezer equally.

6. Drawer Refrigerators

Choose this if: You have limited space in your kitchen or you don’t want the refrigerator to be the focal point of the kitchen

7. Compact Refrigerators

Choose this if: If you have limited space such as you live in a small apartment or a dorm.

8. Wine Refrigerators
