Whirlpool NEO FR258 ROY 3S 245 L Double Door Refrigerator
Whirlpool is a reputed brand in India, but its mid-range refrigerator lineup is not budget friendly. The Whirlpool NEO FR258 Refrigerator, which is available in the market for an amount of 21990 rupees, lacks a number of handy modern features. However, some features of this product are really attractive and will enhance the experience of the end users.
Comes With Freshflow Air System
The refrigerator features a really tall air tower that disperses cool wind in all sections equally. Because of this, the items stored inside are cooled down from all directions. Another great thing is that users can also change the direction of wind by adjusting the flexible vents. A special Active Deo section removes the unpleasant odor and keeps the inside fresh.
Like all other refrigerators offered by Whirlpool in the mid-range segment, this fridge also comes with 6th Sense Deep Freeze Technology. It makes the cooling operation efficient and also keeps the food fresh in times of power outage.
The fridge also sports a dedicated pull out shelf, which uniquely designed for dairy items. It is positioned at the top of refrigerator section to keep the items stored always cool and safe.
Moisture Control Slider
One of the great features of this refrigerator is that it’s crisper is capable of locking the moisture inside. All the vegetables and fruit stored here will remain fresh for about seven days. Moreover, the slider at the top lets the users set moisture level according to the type of items.
Appealing Form Factor
This Whirlpool refrigerator will certainly enhance the beauty of your kitchen. Customers get to choose from two color variants, both of which look amazing. The finish of the outer shell gives a nice and appealing feel to the eyes. The handles are really comfortable offers a firm grip. However, do remember to properly close the door because if some space remains between the door and fridge body, the cooling action will become inefficient.
It is a three star rated product and consumes less electricity. In today’s high inflation market, you will not have to worry about the electricity bill. The maintenance cost of this refrigerator is also less. Its compressor comes with three years of safe warranty. Moreover, you can also opt for extended warranty plans for other parts.
- Efficient design for faster cooling

- Looks great

The Whirlpool product comes with many next generation features. We really appreciate the brand for making this machine user-friendly and indeed affordable. However, we believe there is room for improvements in order to make it handy for Indian home makers. Whirlpool should learn a lesson from other brands on how to make a refrigerator more attractive by offering extra features. The biggest downside is that this refrigerator cannot run on inverter power.
LG GL B292SGSM 258L Double Door Refrigerator
You might have watched many television adverts sponsored by LG claiming that LG products make people’s life good. I do agree that most of electronics products manufactured by this brand are of great value. In fact, the refrigerator that we are going to discuss now also maintains the same reputation.
The LG GL-B292SGSM Refrigerator that comes with a price tag of 19490 rupees has become one of the most popular products in the market. It offers all the modern features and is also durable.
The graphite steel finish on this refrigerator looks simple yet adds a standard into your modern kitchen decor. This minimalistic design gives this machine special feel. Durable materials make its outer shell resistive to small collisions. Even the glass shelves inside the refrigerator are capable of holding heavy items.
Works with Inverter
I would recommend this refrigerator if your house suffers from frequent power cuts. It sports a smart compressor, which is capable of running on inverter power supply. This product supports a wide voltage input of 135 – 290 Volts and does not require a stabilizer.
Gross Capacity is 258 Liters
It perfectly fits the need of a family with 6-8 members. Three toughened glass shelves provide a lot of space to store items. The design of the double twist ice tray makes it possible to store ice in great amounts that can be helpful while partying. However, the freezer lacks lighting system because of which it becomes hard for the users to take out items in the dark. This LG refrigerator model also comes with a large door shelf capable of holding large bottles. Moreover, you also get a pull out tray that rests on small wheels for easy gliding.
Fast and Efficient Cooling
This LG refrigerator is highly efficient on the cooling front. It blows the wind in circular motion through multiple air vents so that the items stored inside can cool down just in a few minutes. This cooling process consumes really less electricity, which is why this fridge has got 3-star energy rating.
At the bottom, it features a crisper that also comes with moisture control slider. Your vegetables and fruits will remain crispy for a much long time as this container keeps the moisture locked inside.
- Simple but durable design
- 3 shelves made of toughened glass
- Comes with 2-liter bottle storage on the door

- Smart compressor that can be powered by an inverter
- Pull out tray
- Crisper locks the moisture and keeps the items fresh for longer durations
- Cools down the items within no time
- No lighting system in the freezer
- Not good for kitchen with limited space
In my opinion, this LG refrigerator is a great choice for those middle-class families has a big kitchen, but their locality suffers from frequent power outrage. Its price is in a perfect balance with the features that it offers. You might not find a better deal than this.
Whirlpool NEO FR278 CLS PLUS 3S 265L Double Door Refrigerator
American company Whirlpool is one of few trusted brands in India when it comes to buying long lasting advance heavy consumer electronics. Of late, for washing machines and refrigerators, Whirlpool is the first choice of most Indian consumers.
The latest model from this brand is NEO FR278 CLS PLUS Refrigerator, which can be purchased for an affordable amount of 21490 Rupees in the online market. This unique fridge model comes with a double door design and is suitable for typical Indian families.

All the vegetables and fruits will remain fresh for quite a long time in this fridge as it features a really advanced HEXAFRESH Moisture Lock Technology. The great thing is that you can also set the desired moisture with the help of a slider.
LG’s Special 6th Sense Deep Freeze Technology
If you like to make ice-creams or other chilling items at home, then this refrigerator is the best option. Its 6th Sense Deep Freeze Technology blows the wind in 360-degrees for greater efficiency and faster cooling. The freezer comes insulated with a chilling gel that stops heat from the outside to leak inside. So, your favorite desserts will not get damaged even in the case of a power cut. The ice maker is attached on the top left side.
Moreover, its frost free technology easily takes care of the water molecules present in the air and prevents them from freezing on the food items.
The 6th Sense Deep Freeze Technology that I have mentioned in the above lines not only helps this refrigerator freeze the items within a few minutes but also saves power. As chilling wind touches the beverages and other food items from all directions, it takes much less energy for the compressor to maintain a specific temperature. The benefit of this is that your electricity bill will remain under control. This refrigerator has also got an energy rating of three stars.

I cannot say this refrigerator model is the best in 22000 rupees price segment. One feature that I really miss is it should have an inverter compressor. Buying this heavy gadget won’t be a bad decision, but we have some better alternative available in the market.
