The Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ has a large capacity and sleek finish, making it one of the best French door refrigerators around.

This is one of the few refrigerators we looked at with an external refrigerator drawer, which is a great place to store snacks and other frequently accessed items. With this feature, you don't have to open the larger compartment and risk wasting energy when you just need to grab a juice box. Also, you don’t need to rummage through your whole refrigerator to fish out a small snack that’s been pushed to the back. 

Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ: Features

You can use the WRX735SDHZ’s refrigerator drawer to store fresh fruits – if they are front and center in this easy-to-access drawer, there is less chance you will forget about them and leave them to rot. The drawer has separate temperature controls, too, so you can base the settings on what you store inside. Another one of the WRX735SDHZ’s useful organization features is its adjustable gallon-size door bins, which make it easy to store bulky drink containers, even if they have uncommon dimensions.

This French door refrigerator is easy to keep clean. Its exterior is fingerprint-resistant, and the touch controls are easy to wipe down. The spillproof shelves help contain messes so you only have to clean one shelf after a spill, rather than the entire fridge.

The refrigerator’s water and ice features are quite nice as well, and you can access both without opening the freezer. Also, you can select the amount of water you need, and the fridge will fill your container with that exact amount – it shuts itself off when it’s done, so you don’t have to watch it.

Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ: Efficiency 

This fridge is Energy Star compliant, and it’s as efficient as similar models. The Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ costs an estimated $82 a year to operate, which is not bad for a fridge with a 24.5-cubic-foot capacity. Its energy consumption is also on par with its peers, using about 683 kilowatts of electricity a year. If you are replacing an old fridge, this one will be noticeably cheaper to run.

Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ: Warranty 

One of this model’s weaknesses is its below-average warranty. Most French door refrigerators are covered for just one year, but many manufacturers have extended warranties on specific important parts. The WRX735SDHZ’s one-year warranty covers all the parts, with no extensions on key components like the sealed system and compressor.

Should you buy the Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ?

The Whirlpool WRX735SDHZ is a well-designed French door refrigerator that helps you organize food better than most fridges we reviewed. For example, its external refrigerator drawer gives you easy access to snacks you want readily available. It also has spillproof shelves that prevent messes from spreading. This is an energy-efficient fridge with a big enough capacity for a good-size family.
