On the door opening method of the refrigerator: which is better?

They are all refrigerators. Why are there so many ways to open the door? This is the first question Xinzhujun encountered when he bought a refrigerator in his early years! ▲A list of refrigerators with 8 mainstream door opening methods. My understanding at the time was: the more doors, the more grids, which can be classified and stored. Years later, after I had a deep understanding of the refrigerator, I realized that I only wanted to get the "tip of the iceberg" right. The difference in the way of opening the door also means more differences. Let's talk about it in this issue. (This article is not only helpful for choosing a refrigerator, but also meaningful for the daily use of the refrigerator. It is recommended to read it~)

Different capacities

Today's refrigerator door opening methods can be roughly divided into eight types: single-door refrigerators, upper and lower double-door refrigerators, upper, middle and lower three-door refrigerators, and Japanese-style multi-door refrigerators. Most of these four refrigerator door opening methods are A small-capacity refrigerator (50L-300+L) with a body width of about 60cm. ▲ Among the four small-capacity door opening methods, Japanese-style refrigerators have a high volume rate, and many can reach 400+ liters. Side-by-side refrigerators, T-shaped three-door refrigerators, cross-door refrigerators, and French multi-door refrigerators, most of which are large-capacity refrigerators (400L-600+L). ▲Four kinds of large-capacity door opening methods, among which the French four-door has a large capacity range, ranging from as low as 300L to as high as 600+L. Therefore, the difference in the way of opening the door, to a large extent, means the difference in capacity. For us, if we want to choose large capacity, we can only choose among the last four door opening methods, and vice versa! In addition, because many people currently have the need to embed refrigerators in cabinets, I would like to specifically explain: ▲Japanese multi-door built-in [email protected] Currently, refrigerators that can be embedded (body depth within 60cm, bottom Heat dissipation, the gap on both sides is less than 1 cm), the capacity is large or small, and most of the door opening methods are side-by-side, T-shaped three-door refrigerator, French multi-door, Japanese multi-door. (Note: The above statement is not absolute. There are also many refrigerators that break through the routine, such as three-door and Japanese-style multi-door refrigerators with large capacity; for example, the upper, middle and lower three-door refrigerators are built-in. Generally speaking, the last four types of opening doors , the capacity is larger.)

Different storage partitions

The refrigerator with 8 door opening methods has different internal space division, which is good understand. There are five door opening methods: single door, upper and lower double doors, upper middle and lower three doors, side-to-side doors, and T-shaped doors, all of which are how the doors are laid out and the interior space is laid out. ▲The partitions of the three types of multi-door refrigerators are Japanese multi-door, cross door and French multi-door, which are a bit different! The internal layout is different from the division of doors. In order to let everyone understand more intuitively, we have made their respective internal layout diagrams. (The dotted line indicates: non-deterministic layout, some refrigerators do not have relevant partitions! In addition, in addition to the French four-door, there are French five-doors... add an extra drawer.) The impact of internal partitions on daily use can be divided into three points : ① The more doors, the more partitions you can store, and the food can be classified more clearly. If you have the pursuit of this matter, you can use a Japanese-style multi-door refrigerator with the most partitions! ▲The layout of the interior of the Japanese-style multi-door refrigerator matches the habits of Japanese housewives. ▲ Japanese housewives make refrigerator storage after pretreatment because the full-time housewives over there will pretreat the dishes after buying vegetables-washing, chopping, and even blanching. Then, after sorting, sorting and putting them in the refrigerator, a very refined refrigerator storage can be achieved. ②In the large-capacity refrigerator, the side-to-side door and the T-shaped door are separated vertically, while the cross door and French multi-door have horizontal opening space. ▲The horizontal layout can put down long vegetables. This means that when you encounter long onions, loofah and other larger ingredients, you can put them in directly. For side-to-side and three-door refrigerators, you need to cut them into small pieces before putting them in the refrigerator. ▲The fresh-keeping box of chopped green onion strongly recommends that you don’t put the chopped chopped green onion in a plastic bag and stuff it in the refrigerator. It’s too easy to forget because it’s hard to find. Just start with a few fresh-keeping boxes of chopped green onion. You can cut the green onion, ginger, and garlic and put them in. It can be drained and kept fresh, and it is easy to find. ③ The layout of French multi-door and Japanese multi-door is a drawer + swing door that is pulled directly from the outside. ▲Smoother and better pull-out drawers The drawers that are pulled directly from the outside are much easier to use than the drawers built into the swing doors, both in terms of the texture of the pull-out and convenience. ▲The kraft paper bag storage in the drawer If you are willing to put a few kraft paper bags in the refrigerator drawer, the storage of vegetables and fruits can be done at a glance, everything is spread out in front of you, and it is very simple to find a certain ingredient.

Different functions

A single-door refrigerator only has a refrigeration function, usually a beverage storage refrigerator or a transitional refrigerator in a rental house. ▲The function of single-door refrigerators is divided into all double-door refrigerators, which are one freezing area and one refrigerating area. ▲The function of the two-door refrigerator is divided, and all three-door and above refrigerators have more possibilities. In addition to refrigeration and freezing, you can also set a temperature change area. ▲The function of three-door and above refrigerators is divided into temperature-variable zones, which is literally understood, the temperature can be adjusted, and some models also support humidity adjustment. (French-style multi-door, variable temperature area, some will be arranged in an external drawer, and the other zero-degree fresh-keeping area, mother and baby storage area, etc., are actually an upgrade of the variable temperature area, or simple configuration) The necessity for the existence of the variable temperature area is: different Food materials have different humidity and temperature requirements for storage and preservation. For example, meat that is eaten in a short period of time does not need to be thawed when it exists in an environment of 0 degrees, and it tastes good. Another example: still meat, stored at -7℃-0℃, even if it is in a soft frozen state, it will be cut very well, not like a frozen area, which is directly frozen into a stone and has to wait for a long time. ▲The suitable storage temperature of different ingredients can be used for the ingredients in the variable temperature area, there are many more, please refer to the picture. Therefore, the variable temperature area serves the fine life. Of course, if it is not fine, there can also be a variable temperature area, directly set it within -7°C, use it as a thawing area, put it in in advance, and cut it directly when cutting. Japanese-style multi-door refrigerators, French-style multi-door refrigerators, and if there are more than 4 doors, some additional functions may be added, such as ice making area or beverage storage area, vacuum chamber, etc. ▲The ice-making box is not the same as the ice-making box that comes with an ordinary household refrigerator, which is different from the ice-making refrigerator that can produce ice water. ▲The ice tray mold is more like the kind of silicone ice tray mold, so if there is no ice box in the refrigerator at home, start with a beautiful silicone ice box, the same reason.

Difference in energy consumption

This is best understood. The "air-conditioning loss" of opening one door at a time is definitely greater than opening one door at a time. Small doors have less "cooling loss". ▲The refrigerated area with only a small door is open. Therefore, in fact, a refrigerator with more doors will theoretically consume less energy than a refrigerator with fewer doors. Of course, it is also affected by many other factors.


If I were to rank these refrigerators in terms of how to open the doors, my ranking would be: French Four Doors > Cross Doors > T-shaped three doors > Side-by-side doors. Other ways of opening doors are not recommended, because small-capacity refrigerators are not recommended, because refrigerators, larger ones are always useful. The multi-door type has many functions and very fine partitions, but it does not match our life well, and the Japanese-style refrigerator is really low-cost! ! ! It often costs more than 10,000 yuan, and can only buy a single cycle.
