8 best large refrigerators — Rating 2022

In addi­tion to the key cri­te­ri­on, we took into account brand aware­ness, the use of mod­ern tech­nolo­gies, design and prac­ti­cal­i­ty. One of the most impor­tant selec­tion fac­tors is the degree of con­sumer con­fi­dence, as well as how the equip­ment has shown itself in real oper­a­tion. We have processed reviews from cus­tomers who have owned a par­tic­u­lar refrig­er­a­tor mod­el for a long time so that all the advan­tages and dis­ad­van­tages of the equip­ment can be iden­ti­fied.

To com­pile the rat­ing and ana­lyze the com­pet­i­tive advan­tages of the nom­i­nees, infor­ma­tion was used from the offi­cial web­sites of man­u­fac­tur­ers, from the­mat­ic forums, from review sites, from pop­u­lar mar­ket­places and from oth­er avail­able online sources.

8 best large refrigerators

The best large refrigerators with a volume of up to 500 liters

This group includes three mod­els of Side-by-Side refrig­er­a­tors, whose total vol­ume of cham­bers does not exceed 500 liters. This is a prac­ti­cal and func­tion­al tech­nique that will not only cov­er all the needs for food stor­age for a fam­i­ly of 3–4 peo­ple, but also har­mo­nious­ly fit into the inte­ri­or of a kitchen with a stan­dard area.

Hyundai 1386218

Hyundai 1386218

Our review opens with the Side-by-Side Hyundai 1386218 (CS-4505F) refrig­er­a­tor from the South Kore­an man­u­fac­tur­er of house­hold appli­ances and elec­tron­ics. The device is assem­bled in Chi­na and is cov­ered by an offi­cial 12-month man­u­fac­tur­er’s war­ran­ty.

Hyundai 1386218 (CS-4505F) belongs to mod­els with basic func­tion­al­i­ty, which opti­mal­ly com­bines low cost, prac­ti­cal­i­ty and good build qual­i­ty. The absence of expen­sive addi­tion­al options favor­ably affects the price of equip­ment. The total capac­i­ty of the cham­bers is 476 liters. This is quite enough to store a large num­ber of prod­ucts, includ­ing use­ful prepa­ra­tions for the win­ter.

The mod­el is avail­able in two ver­sions — in white and stain­less steel. The dif­fer­ence between the prod­ucts is only in the label­ing.

Exter­nal­ly, the refrig­er­a­tor looks as con­cise as pos­si­ble, which will allow it to fit per­fect­ly into any mod­ern inte­ri­or. The con­trol pan­el is locat­ed in the upper part of the case behind the refrig­er­a­tor door. The user can choose pre­set tem­per­a­tures in both cham­bers, as well as use the func­tions of accel­er­at­ed cool­ing or freez­ing.

Accord­ing to data from the Yandex.Market por­tal, the mod­el is very pop­u­lar and trust­ed by con­sumers, as evi­denced by the pres­ti­gious “cus­tomer’s choice” mark and a rat­ing of 4.8 points out of 5. The main advan­tages are spa­cious­ness, lacon­ic design, price, and a good overview of prod­ucts on all shelves. Among the short­com­ings — only one draw­er in the freez­er.

We rec­om­mend Hyundai 1386218 (CS-4505F) for fam­i­lies of 3–4 peo­ple or for house­wives who are prepar­ing frozen food for the win­ter or prepar­ing imme­di­ate­ly for the week ahead.


  • Afford­able price.
  • Lacon­ic design.
  • There is a mode of accel­er­at­ed cool­ing and fast freez­ing.


  • You can­not set the tem­per­a­ture to the near­est degree.
  • Only one box in the freez­er (accord­ing to con­sumer reviews).

Biryusa SBS 573 I

Rat­ing: 4.8


Biryusa SBS 573 I con­tin­ues our review — a Side-by-Side refrig­er­a­tor from a Russ­ian man­u­fac­tur­er. The equip­ment is assem­bled at a mod­ern enter­prise in Chi­na and has a one-year war­ran­ty.

The mod­el is pre­sent­ed in a sil­ver case and is made in a mod­ern design. A dis­tinc­tive fea­ture of the tech­nique is the pres­ence of a dis­penser, which allows you to get chilled water or ice with­out open­ing the com­part­ment door.

The touch screen with blue back­light looks styl­ish and mod­ern. In addi­tion to set­ting the tem­per­a­ture by degrees, the user can acti­vate the super-cool­ing or accel­er­at­ed freez­ing mode.

At the bot­tom of both cham­bers, there are 2 draw­ers each, which allows you to store dif­fer­ent prod­ucts sep­a­rate­ly.

The total vol­ume is 489 liters. Of these, the main com­part­ment is 333 liters, the freez­er is 159 liters. Addi­tion­al­ly, a fil­ter is installed in the refrig­er­a­tor com­part­ment, which puri­fies the water sup­plied to the dis­penser.

Users note the rather qui­et oper­a­tion of the com­pres­sor, a good indi­ca­tor of ener­gy effi­cien­cy and a well-thought-out arrange­ment of shelves and draw­ers inside the com­part­ments. Among the short­com­ings, con­sumers note the need to con­nect the refrig­er­a­tor to the water sup­ply for the dis­penser to work, as well as the need to spend mon­ey on a water fil­ter.

Mod­ern design, large capac­i­ty, auto­mat­ic sup­ply of chilled water or ice allowed the Biryusa SBS 573 I refrig­er­a­tor to become one of the best solu­tions in its prod­uct group.


  • Touch con­trol pan­el.
  • The pres­ence of a dis­penser.
  • 2 box­es in each com­part­ment.
  • Low pow­er con­sump­tion (A+).


  • For the dis­penser to work, the equip­ment must be con­nect­ed to the water sup­ply.
  • The need for reg­u­lar replace­ment of the water fil­ter.

The HIBERG RFS-484DX NFXQ mod­el com­pletes the cat­e­go­ry of the best large refrig­er­a­tors. This is a rel­a­tive­ly new (since 2017) Russ­ian brand under which refrig­er­a­tors and air con­di­tion­ers are pro­duced. All prod­ucts are assem­bled in Chi­na and have a two-year war­ran­ty.

The mod­el is pre­sent­ed in four dif­fer­ent col­or vari­a­tions, which will allow you to choose the best solu­tion for a kitchen inte­ri­or in a cer­tain style. Tra­di­tion­al­ly, the dif­fer­ence in col­or is shown in the prod­uct label­ing (last let­ters).

The refrig­er­a­tor is equipped with a dis­penser, thanks to which you can quick­ly get chilled water with­out open­ing the door. There is also a built-in ice mak­er with mechan­i­cal con­trol in the freez­er. To get ice, it is enough to pour water into the con­tain­er, and after it freezes, it is enough to turn the han­dle, and the cubes will fall into the con­tain­er.

There is a touch screen above the dis­penser, with which you can set the desired mode in both com­part­ments, as well as use var­i­ous addi­tion­al options — super­cool­ing, enhanced freez­ing, “hol­i­day”. If nec­es­sary, the touch pan­el is blocked.

The total vol­ume of the cham­bers is 472 liters. Inside both com­part­ments there is LED light­ing, and the shelves are pro­tect­ed from exten­sion and acci­den­tal falling.

On the Yandex.Market resource, this mod­el was award­ed the “Cus­tomer’s Choice” mark, which indi­cates the qual­i­ty of prod­ucts and con­sumer con­fi­dence. Among the advan­tages, users note good capac­i­ty, con­ve­nient touch con­trol and the pres­ence of a water dis­penser. The tech­nique has no crit­i­cal short­com­ings, but some con­sumers note the lack of auto­mat­ic ice sup­ply.

We rec­om­mend the HIBERG RFS-484DX NFXQ refrig­er­a­tor due to its good func­tion­al­i­ty, mod­ern design and thought­ful design.


  • Water dis­penser.
  • Touch con­trol.
  • Class A+
  • Built-in ice mak­er.


  • There is no auto­mat­ic ice sup­ply through the dis­penser (accord­ing to con­sumer reviews).

The best large refrigerators with a volume of 500 liters

This cat­e­go­ry includes 5 mod­els from Russ­ian and glob­al man­u­fac­tur­ers of house­hold appli­ances. Among the nom­i­nees are not just large refrig­er­a­tors, but mod­els with an impres­sive total vol­ume of about 700 liters. This tech­nique is per­fect for large fam­i­lies, as well as for those who like to pre­pare frozen veg­eta­bles and fruits for the win­ter in almost unlim­it­ed quan­ti­ties.

Despite some exter­nal sim­i­lar­i­ties, each nom­i­nee has its own dis­tinc­tive fea­tures. Thanks to which it stands out against the back­ground of com­peti­tors.

Turquoise SBS 587 GG

Rat­ing: 4.6

Turquoise SBS 587 GG

Opens the cat­e­go­ry Side-by-Side Biryusa SBS 587 GG from the Kras­no­yarsk plant of refrig­er­a­tion units. Despite the geo­graph­i­cal link­age of the brand to Rus­sia, mod­els of this class are pro­duced in Chi­na at part­ner OEM fac­to­ries.

Judg­ing by the num­bers in the label of the refrig­er­a­tor, its total vol­ume is 587 liters, which is enough for the needs of a large fam­i­ly of 4–6 peo­ple. The mod­el is pre­sent­ed in four dif­fer­ent col­ors, which allows you to find the right solu­tion for a par­tic­u­lar kitchen inte­ri­or. Dif­fer­ences between col­ors are dis­played in the last two let­ters of the equip­ment mark­ing.

Exter­nal­ly, the mod­el is made in a mod­ern lacon­ic design, but behind the appar­ent sim­plic­i­ty lies a thought­ful design and func­tion­al­i­ty. One of the fea­tures is glass facades, thanks to which the refrig­er­a­tor doors are eas­i­ly washed from grease and house­hold dirt.

The touch con­trol pan­el is built into the top of the refrig­er­a­tor door. The user can set the tem­per­a­ture in both cham­bers to the near­est degree, as well as addi­tion­al options — for exam­ple, “vaca­tion” or super-freez­ing.

Anoth­er fea­ture of the mod­el is the pres­ence of an invert­er motor, which ensures qui­et oper­a­tion of the device (noise lev­el with­in 43 dB), pre­cise­ly main­tains the set tem­per­a­ture, is dis­tin­guished by high per­for­mance and econ­o­my (class A +).

Users note the silent oper­a­tion of the equip­ment, large capac­i­ty and glass facade pan­els. Among the short­com­ings — there is no way to change the height of the side shelves in order to adjust the inter­nal vol­ume “for your­self”.

We rec­om­mend Biryusa SBS 587 GG to all con­sumers for whom not only the reli­a­bil­i­ty and large capac­i­ty of the refrig­er­a­tor is impor­tant, but also its appear­ance.


  • Styl­ish design with glass fronts.
  • Touch­screen.
  • invert­er motor.
  • Eco­nom­i­cal con­sump­tion of elec­tric­i­ty (A +).


  • There are few options for installing shelves in height (accord­ing to con­sumer reviews).

Midea MRS518SFNBE2

Rat­ing: 4.7


The next posi­tion in our rank­ing is Midea MRS518SFNBE2 from the Chi­nese brand of house­hold and air con­di­tion­ing equip­ment. The offi­cial war­ran­ty for the refrig­er­a­tor is 12 months.

The mod­el is avail­able in a lux­u­ri­ous beige col­or with an imi­ta­tion of mar­ble tex­ture. Also, oth­er body col­ors are avail­able to users (the equip­ment will have a dif­fer­ent nomen­cla­ture, the dif­fer­ence is in the last five marks of the mark­ing).

The refrig­er­a­tor has received a min­i­mal­ist design, which allows you to har­mo­nious­ly fit it into the inte­ri­or of a mod­ern kitchen. Thanks to the inte­grat­ed han­dles, the case has no addi­tion­al pro­tru­sions, more­over, this design makes it eas­i­er to care for the facades.

There is an inte­grat­ed touch pan­el on the top of the main cham­ber door. Among the main func­tions are the tem­per­a­ture set­ting, super­cool­ing, accel­er­at­ed freez­ing and child lock.

The total vol­ume of both cham­bers is 573 liters. The refrig­er­a­tor is equipped with a com­pres­sor that uses invert­er tech­nol­o­gy. This not only reduces the noise lev­el, but also pro­vides eco­nom­i­cal ener­gy con­sump­tion (class A +).

The advan­tages of tech­nol­o­gy include cost-effec­tive­ness, spec­tac­u­lar appear­ance and con­ve­nient oper­a­tion. Among the short­com­ings — poor­ly orga­nized inte­ri­or space, very few options for chang­ing the height of the shelves.

Mod­ern min­i­mal­ist design, invert­er tech­nol­o­gy and large capac­i­ty have allowed Midea MRS518SFNBE2 to take one of the lead­ing places among refrig­er­a­tors in its class.


  • Design.
  • Inte­grat­ed han­dles.
  • Motor with invert­er tech­nol­o­gy.
  • Prof­itabil­i­ty (A +).


  • The inte­ri­or space is poor­ly orga­nized (accord­ing to the own­ers of the equip­ment).

Hisense RQ563N4GW1

Rat­ing: 4.7

Hisense RQ563N4GW1

Our review of Hisense RQ563N4GW1 con­tin­ues. This is a mul­ti-cham­ber refrig­er­a­tor from one of the largest man­u­fac­tur­ers of house­hold appli­ances and elec­tron­ics from Chi­na. The war­ran­ty for the device is 12 months.

The mod­el is made in the orig­i­nal form fac­tor with four hinged doors. The upper half of the case is occu­pied by a refrig­er­at­ing cham­ber (2 facades, a com­mon com­part­ment), and the low­er half is a freez­er (2 facades, 2 com­part­ments).

Like all mod­els from our rat­ing, this refrig­er­a­tor has Total No Frost tech­nol­o­gy, while the device has two inde­pen­dent cool­ing cir­cuits, thanks to which the air from the cham­bers does not mix and odors are not trans­mit­ted.

All 4 doors have inte­grat­ed han­dles, which gives the facades a mono­lith­ic and lacon­ic appear­ance. At the top of the refrig­er­a­tor com­part­ment there is a con­trol pan­el, with which you can not only set the tem­per­a­ture para­me­ters in each com­part­ment, but also use the “hol­i­day” func­tion, as well as set the super freez­ing or accel­er­at­ed cool­ing mode.

The total vol­ume of the cham­bers is 509 liters.

The advan­tages of the refrig­er­a­tor include orig­i­nal design, qui­et oper­a­tion and thought­ful arrange­ment of shelves in the main com­part­ment. Among the short­com­ings — some users com­plain about the too bulky case.

We rec­om­mend the Hisense RQ563N4GW1 refrig­er­a­tor due to its qual­i­ty build, eye-catch­ing design and thought­ful design.


  • Four hinged doors.
  • Fresh­ness zone.
  • Ener­gy class A +.


  • Great depth of the case (accord­ing to con­sumer reviews).

Hisense RS-677N4AW1

Rat­ing: 4.8


Our review con­tin­ues with anoth­er mod­el from the Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­er Hisense RS-677N4AW1. Unlike the pre­vi­ous nom­i­nee, we have a clas­sic Side-by-Side with a total vol­ume of 564 liters. The case is made in white col­or, and the equip­ment itself has a styl­ish mod­ern design with ele­ments of min­i­mal­ism.

The han­dles of the facades are inte­grat­ed, which not only gives the tech­nique a spec­tac­u­lar look, but also makes it eas­i­er to clean the doors from dirt. On the facade of the freez­er there is a con­trol pan­el with intu­itive sym­bols.

In the refrig­er­a­tor com­part­ment, in addi­tion to the clas­sic glass shelves, there is a remov­able steel bot­tle hold­er. The pres­ence of a car­bon (coal) fil­ter will clean the air from odors, pro­vid­ing dai­ly fresh­ness inside the com­part­ment.

Among the advan­tages, the own­ers of the refrig­er­a­tor dis­tin­guish mod­ern design and com­pact size. Thanks to this, appli­ances can be entered even in a small kitchen. No crit­i­cal flaws were iden­ti­fied, but some con­sumers note the lack of a dis­play on the con­trol pan­el, as well as dis­crete tem­per­a­ture con­trol.

Mod­ern design, opti­mal dimen­sions, thought­ful inte­ri­or space and high-qual­i­ty assem­bly allowed the Hisense RS-677N4AW1 refrig­er­a­tor to become one of the lead­ers in its prod­uct group.


  • Ener­gy class A +.
  • Com­pact dimen­sions (for its class).
  • Bot­tle shelf.
  • car­bon fil­ter.


  • There is no visu­al dis­play.
  • You can not set the tem­per­a­ture to with­in a degree (accord­ing to con­sumer reviews).


Rat­ing: 4.9


The South Kore­an refrig­er­a­tor LG GC-B257JLYV com­pletes our review. This is not only a mod­ern and func­tion­al Side-by-Side, but also one of the largest refrig­er­a­tors avail­able on the Russ­ian mar­ket. Its total vol­ume is an impres­sive 688 liters (usable vol­ume 643 liters). This is enough for a large fam­i­ly (from 5 peo­ple).

The refrig­er­a­tor is assem­bled in Chi­na, and it is cov­ered by a com­bined war­ran­ty — 12 months for the device as a whole, and sep­a­rate­ly for 10 years for the com­pres­sor.

Thanks to invert­er tech­nol­o­gy, the motor is qui­eter (aver­age noise lev­el 39 dB), con­sumes less elec­tric­i­ty (class A +) and lasts longer.

A dis­tinc­tive fea­ture of the mod­el is the built-in “smart” Smart Diag­no­sis auto-diag­no­sis sys­tem, which detects prob­lems and trans­mits infor­ma­tion to a smart­phone through a pro­pri­etary appli­ca­tion. The data can be sent to an autho­rized LG ser­vice, which will sig­nif­i­cant­ly speed up the repair of equip­ment.

Among the advan­tages of the mod­el, it is worth not­ing an impres­sive capac­i­ty, mod­ern design, well-thought-out inter­nal fill­ing and a com­pres­sor oper­at­ing on invert­er tech­nol­o­gy. No seri­ous flaws were found in the mod­el.

We rec­om­mend LG GC-B257JLYV as one of the most spa­cious refrig­er­a­tors on the domes­tic mar­ket for large fam­i­lies or peo­ple who are used to stock­ing frozen food for the win­ter.


  • invert­er tech­nol­o­gy.
  • “Smart” self-diag­no­sis.
  • The huge vol­ume.
  • Antibac­te­r­i­al coat­ing of the cham­ber.


  • No sig­nif­i­cant defi­cien­cies were iden­ti­fied.
