USA: Refrigerators: Refrigerator Manufacturers
Refrigerators are household appliances for holding chilled and frozen food. Most refrigerators contain a frozen food compartment. The largest refrigerators have full-height double doors, with one opening to a refrigerator compartment, and the other opening to a freezer compartment. Medium sized refrigerators have two doors one above the other, opening to the refrigerator and freezer sections. The freezer may be above or below the refrigerator section. Smaller refrigerators have a single door, with a small freezer compartment included at the top of the space. For those who want a separate freezer, refrigerators are available with no freezer compartment.
Most modern refrigerators have a frost-free feature, which avoids the need for manual de-frosting. Optional features include ice and iced water dispensers.
