If you’re a large family or tend to store a lot of stuff in your refrigerator, chances are that a single door refrigerator won’t cut it for you.
However, while there a lot of choices when it comes to double door refrigerators, finding a good one in the budget price range can be tricky. But if you’re on a tight budget and 25,000 rupees is all you got to spend, then worry not as we walk you through the 4 best double door refrigerators in India right now.
Whirlpool Neo Fresh DF 278 PRM 2S 265 L
Despite the fact this model has only two-star energy rating, this refrigerator finds a place in this list because of its high cooling efficiency.
The high cooling efficiency and microblock technology help in keeping the food fresh and prevent bacterial growth on fruits and vegetables. In addition, the fridge also features a freshonizer that reduces the oxidation in order to maintain the freshness of legumes.
One of the highlights of this refrigerator is that it comes with 6th sense deep freeze technology. This technology helps in maintaining the airflow across the refrigerator and keeps your food items fresh for prolonged periods.
Coming to the design of the fridge, it boasts a German steel finish. The well finished body of the fridge can be cleaned just by a swipe of cloth.
The interior design features a spacious freezer and a veggies department beneath the freezer. There is also a vegetable crisper with moisture control system that helps is maintaining air balance and freshness inside the fridge.
Many areas in India encounter frequent power fluctuations for which a stabiliser is needed. However, this refrigerator doesn’t require a stabiliser. Customer reviews reveal that it is recommended to have a stabiliser in order to prevent damage to the fridge due to power fluctuations.
Another unique feature of this refrigerator is the chilling gel in the freezer that prevents ice from melting in case of a power cut.
Furthermore, the fridge comes with Active Deo that keeps the refrigerator’s environment odour-free.
If you’re looking to own a refrigerator that’s not too heavy on your pocket but very functional and practical, then you likely wouldn’t be disappointed with the Whirlpool DF 278 PRM 2S.

LG GL-N292RDSY 260 L
This LG refrigerator in our opinion, is the best offering from the brand in this space. It comes in an excellent design, but its advanced features and superior functionality are its main highlights.
It comes with a smart inverter compressor that guarantees efficient cooling across the refrigerator and super silent operation. Apart from maintaining the cooling at an optimum level in the fridge, the inverter compressor consumes only as much power as is needed. This helps in minimising the electricity consumption.
In addition, the moist balance crisper helps in maintaining moisture levels in fruits and vegetables so as to keep them fresh for longer duration of time. The jet ice technology is a go to feature when you have guests coming to your place suddenly and you need ice at short notice.
Just like our top pick, this refrigerator too comes with anti-bacterial gasket, multi air flow and much more. Also, to ensure that glass shelves can withstand a load as heavy as 175 kg, they are made of toughened glass.
On the spacing front, the fridge has ample space in the door shelves and can easily accommodate 2 litre bottles.
Finally, you would be glad to know that this refrigerator is made in India and LG offers 1-year warranty on the fridge and 10year warranty on the compressor.
- Sufficient capacity for a family of 4 members
- Silent operation
- Boasts stabiliser-free operation
- Comes from a well-known brand
- Automatic defrost feature prevents the formation of frost
- Lots of useful features
- Made in India
- Value for money
- Customers desire to have a light in the freezer
- It’s a 2-star refrigerator too meaning the energy efficiency wouldn’t be very good
Haier HRF-3674BKS-E 347 L
The Haier HRF-3674BKS-E has the highest capacity of all the refrigerators reviewed till now, making it the best refrigerator for large families.
Just like other refrigerators on our list, this refrigerator too doesn’t require getting a stabiliser separately, as it supports a stabiliser-free operation as well.
Talking about the design of the fridge, its design would complement the interiors of your house extremely well, thanks to its black brushline exterior.
Sometimes, the shelves of a refrigerator may develop cracks when a heavy utensil is kept on it. Haier addresses this issue and comes with toughened glasses that can withstand heavy utensils.
At times, there may be a situation when guests arrive and you don’t have enough ice cubes in your freezer. The one-hour icing technology ensures fast ice formation within an hour.
Another salient feature of this refrigerator is the anti-fungal gasket that helps in keeping the food disinfected and fresh. The best part of this gasket is that it is removable and helps in easy cleaning.
What makes this fridge different from our above picks is that it comes with a PUF insulation which helps in maintaining better cooling.
Finally, majority of the users who bought this product are all praise for its features and performance. However, a few others complain about the short length of the power cord.
- Very spacious and large capacity
- Strong cooling
- Comes with a door lock
- Excellent build quality
- Comes with eco-friendly R600a refrigerant gas
- 10 years warranty on compressor and 1 year warranty on refrigerator
- A bit noisy operation

Whirlpool Neo 258H ROY (2S)-N 245 L
This is a classy and magnificent fridge suitable for small families. The visual appeal of the refrigerator is hard to beat and the design would certainly add to the overall feel of the place where it is placed.
Just like our top Whirlpool model, it too comes with 6th sense technology, microblock technology, chilling gel, freshonizer and many other features.
The freezer comes with two ice trays that make ice very quickly thanks to the powerful compressor. Also, the transparent veggie box at the bottom controls the level of moisture to keep the legumes and fruits fresh for a longer period of time.
The removable gasket is made from anti-bacterial material to prevent the entry of bacteria on food.
Finally, the fridge has pretty much the same pros and cons offered by Whirlpool 265 L refrigerator.
Despite the few disadvantages, this model can be a good buy if you’re looking for something priced at the lower end of the range without compromising much on the features.
- Great value at a budget price
- Useful advanced features
- Fast cooling
- Two ice trays
- Very durable
- Lower capacity so it won’t be ideal for large families
