Three major appliance companies have introduced four-door refrigerators in the past six months. The refrigerators all combine a French-door fridge on top with a two-drawer freezer on the bottom. The idea of splitting up the freezer makes sense, when you think about stashing longer-term storage items like whole turkeys in the bottom drawer and more frequently used items like bags of frozen vegetables or ice in the top. In most models, you give up a bit of storage capacity for the four-door configuration over a standard two-door. But the convenience might be worth it. Here’s the scoop on the new models:
