Do you want to buy a convertible or non-convertible, 2-star or 3-star refrigerator? What is the net capacity of a 250L refrigerator? If you don’t know these answers then you must read this blog without skipping. I guarantee after the end of this post, you will be able to buy a good refrigerator. Hello friends, welcome to my Blog TheHomeBazar.
My name is Sathish Jadhav and today I will tell you about the best refrigerators in India under INR 25,000. I will cover double door refrigerators in this blog post and in the next blog post, I will tell you about single door refrigerators under 12,000 INR. For varied sizes, please check my recommended list in the below list and buy the most suitable refrigerator as per your budget. Before starting this post, I want to tell some points about these refrigerators which are significant.
First Let’s Talk About Convertible Technology
Many brands claim 4-in-1, 5-in-1 and in fact 8-in-1 convertible technology. What is it? Well, this is the technology that allows to convert freezer section into fridge. Many fancy names are given to it.
This process now takes place electronically. It was available before, but with the help of a knob. Every refrigerator works on 3 basic principles- compression, condensation, and evaporation. These are best covered in double-door top-mount freezer refrigerators. Bottom mount refrigerators consume slightly more electricity.
No inverter refrigerator can reduce the electricity bill to half. It will save a maximum of 20-25% electricity and that’s a fact. But I strongly recommend inverter refrigerators. Refrigerators come with 2 types of the fridge to freezer capacity ratio- 80:20 and 70:30. For a large freezer, 70:30 is apt otherwise 80:20 is the perfect ratio.
Make sure you check the net capacity. Some refrigerators are very cheap because they come with 70-75% net capacity and that’s not right.
Some refrigerators produce excessive heat and their body gets heated even from outside. The reason behind it is poor insulation. Don’t worry because all the models I will recommend will have amazing PUF installation and you will not face any problem.

It comes with a Freshonizer on top of the vegetable tray which is a moving toggle and using this the vegetable remains fresh because of added moisture.

It is a fantastic refrigerator and you can consider buying it.
