Large-capacity refrigerators: more capacity for your home
Upgrading to a larger-capacity home refrigerator gives you more cubic feet of storage for family-favorite fresh foods like meat, dairy and produce, as well as prepared foods and leftovers. If you have a large family, this extra storage space can help ensure that you have plenty for everyone while storing more essentials. With a large-capacity refrigerator, you can stock up on food and cut down on trips to the grocery store.
How big is a large-capacity home refrigerator?
There is no official threshold that defines a refrigerator as “large” or “extra-large.” Typically, large-capacity refrigerators can be around 36 inches wide, over 70 inches tall, and 33 to 35 inches deep. Capacity can range from around 22 - 28 cu. ft.
When your current refrigerator no longer stores enough to meet your family’s needs, that’s an indication that it’s time to upgrade to a larger fridge.
Large-capacity refrigerator configurations
The largest-capacity refrigerators from Whirlpool brand measure up to 36 inches wide and over 70 inches high, so you’ll need to be sure you have adequate room available to install a larger appliance.
