As a country, India is doing pretty well globally when it comes to refrigerator usage. One in every three Indians owns a refrigerator, with ‘Panjabis’ and ‘Keralites’ leading the pack. In simpler terms, we have a liking for something that can chill our drinks and keep our foods tasty for days!

But wondering which among these refrigerators is the most revered by Indians?


We know every brand of a refrigerator has something unique to offer and perhaps, befitting the owner’s lifestyle, space and budget. And this is not dependent on whether one is going to buy a brand new one or will get a refrigerator on rent.

So, we had to do something for them – those looking to buy refrigerators!

After weeks of research on the streets of Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and several other cities; in the villages and across the internet, the data is out. We’ve got the findings that could perhaps inform your next brand of fridge to buy.

What do you need a fridge for?

Many people across India see them as an integral element of modern lifestyles, especially in their homes. They own fridges for their household needs, especially preserving food and keeping their drinks chilly. And out of their domestic refrigerators, we observed that they either had ‘Direct cool’ refrigerators (the energy-efficient, single-door models) or the most recently developed ‘frost-free’ refrigerator types.

Away from households, many fitness professionals also like to rent air conditioner and fridges. They see them as absolute must-have items. And to them, an appliance such as a refrigerator is a lifesaver since they could prepare a week longs’ meal and stack them inside to be frozen and remain fresh. Lastly, businesses too have them, especially in the food and the medical sectors.

So, which are these most popular refrigerators in India?

Samsung RR20M1Y2XUT/HL 192 Lts

Out of the hundreds of refrigerator brands available in India today, Samsung is, by far, the most popular. And though this legendary Korean brand has a vast list of them, it was clear that Samsung RR20M1Y2XUT/HL 192 Lts is the most popular.

It’s a single-door fridge and indeed the most afforded brand, going by its price on various stores and even on Amazon.in. Tons of impressive features of it possibly warranted its popularity, but the fact that it’s stylish, energy-efficient and feature-rich probably compelled them to buy it. Power in India isn’t very stable, and outages are quite frequent, something that’s correctly solved by this refrigerator’s Digital Inverter Compressor.

Other top-ranking fridge models from Samsung across India are RT30M3425S8/HL and RT30M3954R8/HL; both are double door refrigerator with 5-star BEE rating.

LG GL-C292RPZN

You might be wondering how LG managed to gain traction across India and be among the most popular refrigerator brands. Well, it’s because of how they are user-centric. Simply put, this GL-C292RPZN is arguably the most sought after by the fast-rising middle class.

It is a stylish double door unit with a durable textured finish and a capacity of 260 liters. It is energy-efficient with a 4-star BEE rating, yet its affordable price tag appeals to many. Also, the humongous 10-year warranty is the best in the market.

Many who love LG, but don’t own this one, however, had GL-T542GNSX 495Lts and GL-B201APOX.

Haier 195L

Haier couldn’t have missed in this list, considering how affordable it is. Yes – many across India own a fridge made by this Chinese brand, though Haier 195L was a clear stand-out. Despite its 3-star BEE rating, its reciprocatory compressor whose 4-year warranty saves a lot in power bills.

Whirlpool 190L

Last on this list is Whirlpool’s best-selling single door refrigerator; the 3-star BEE rated 190L model. One main thing with this economic pick for ordinary households is its reasonable price and its energy-efficiency.

Incredibly, 190L features 9-hour cooling retention ability – one of the best. It’s a single door, but with the two ice trays in its freezer, this Whirlpool is fantastic. For those who prefer a 2-door brand by the same brand, NEO FR258 CLS/ROY certainly comes in handy.
