Explore Our Whirlpool Refrigerator Models [Buying Guide]

by Pam Silvia

As we mentioned in our comprehensive Refrigerator Buying Guide, shopping for a new fridge is a high-stakes investment that entails plenty of consideration and forethought (lest you live to regret your purchase). Luckily, Whirlpool’s renowned quality and customer service makes it easy to commit to a new brand-home appliance—in fact, every Whirlpool purchase is an informed one.

A home stocked with Whirlpool appliances means bringing meals to the table despite a hectic schedule; it also means purposeful organization, customized care for any mess, and above all, having products that are easy to use, no matter who is commandeering the kitchen. Whirlpool refrigerators, of course, are no exception.

We broadly consider Whirlpool to be “great-value” manufacturer, as you can expect a generous range of freestanding and built-in appliances at price points that won’t cause you to turn out your pockets. Read our latest blog to discover why Whirlpool refrigerator models are among the best in the industry.

Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerators

If you tend to shop for your groceries in bulk, you’re in luck: Whirlpool side by side refrigerators are stocked with a spacious vertical freezer in which you can store more items on wall-to-wall frameless glass shelves that are specially designed to offer greater storage flexibility.

Other accommodating features from Whirlpool side by side fridges include an extra full shelf in the freezer (thanks to the ice bin’s in-door placement), an exterior water and ice dispenser, and adjustable gallon door bins you can move anywhere in the fridge door for increased loading flexibility when and where you need it.

Whirlpool Freezerless Refrigerators

With only a one-door fridge compartment, Whirlpool freezerless refrigerators (also called “Sidekicks” by the brand) are ideal if you’re looking to maximize fridge space and keep a separate freezer. Whirlpool stocks only a handful of these sleek refrigerator models and are valued at a premium price point.

Frameless glass shelves and in-door ice are hallmarks of this model, too, and you can expect an infinity slide shelf that slides back to fit taller items, tiered freezer storage, and panoramic LED lighting.
