The truth about expensive refrigerators

1 of 5

We know for a fact that you don't need to spend big bucks to get a good fridge. But if you're looking for a particularly large unit, or lots of extra features, you're likely to encounter higher price tags.
We took a look at what we call "high end" or "luxury" refrigerators, models that have an average online price of $2000 or more. The majority of these fridges have at least 24 cubic feet of interior space, with some over 30. Almost all of the high end models have french doors and only a handful are counter-deep. Users report very high customer satisfaction ratings with expensive fridges, and find them to be more reliable as well. Opinions show that money doesn't (necessarily) buy quality, though; the quality scores fluctuate depending on the specific model.
LG offers the most high-end refrigerators, with several great models to choose from.
