Best Refrigerators Under Rs. 25000
LG 260 L 4 Star Frost Free Double Door Refrigerator(GL-I292RPZL.APZZEBN, Shiny Steel, Inverter Compressor)
LG 260 L GLI 292RPZL.APZZEBN consistently features as one of the best refrigerators for a nuclear family for multiple reasons.
First of all, the refrigerator uses smart inverter compressor that adjusts its speed depending on ambient temperature and load. This not only enhances cooling efficiency, but also optimizes energy consumption.
To deliver maximum results from the inverter compressor, LG has utilized multiple air flow vents towards the back of the refrigerator and on the fridge door too. This ensures that the cool air from the compressor is uniformly delivered throughout the refrigerator, thereby maximizing cooling efficiency of the device.
Yet another advantage of this refrigerator is that it is extremely energy efficient. Consuming just around 193 units of electricity, the refrigerator has a 4 star energy rating from BEE ( Bureau of Energy Efficiency).
The large crisper is another feature loved by people who stock on fresh produces on weekly basis. The excess moisture from the fruits and vegetables evaporates and settles on the crisper’s lattice shaped lid. So, you can be sure that the fresh produces do not go rot easily. The moisture control vent also helps to retain or draw out moisture from inside the crisper depending on your needs.
Note- take care to store fresh produces in paper bag and not plastic bag. Moisture from vegetables are absorbed by the paper bag, whereas moisture is retained inside plastic bag, making it an ideal environment for growth of mold and bacteria.
A drawback that you find is that the shelves of the refrigerator are not height adjustable.
Overall, with enough space, enhanced cooling and optimal energy consumption, the LG 260 L GLI 292RPZL.APZZEBN is one of the highly rated refrigerators in India.
Samsung 275 L 3 Star Frost Free Double Door Refrigerator(RT30K3723S8, Elegant Inox, Convertible, Inverter Compressor)
If flexible space arrangement is one of your primary requirements, then convertible refrigerators are what you need.
Samsung Convertible refrigerators are more versatile than LG dual fridges as you have 5 modes in which you can set your refrigerator. In addition to the regular mode, you can convert your freezer to fridge; switch off the freezer; switch off fridge and finally, switch off the fridge and convert freezer to fridge.
With the Samsung RT30K3723S8, you get a fairly spacious fridge space of 206 L and freezer space of 69 L that you can interchangeably convert as per your needs. Thanks to the utilization of digital inverter compressor with 7 speeds, the device is quite energy efficient. Though it has 3 star energy rating, the annual energy consumption cannot be precisely predicted as it depends on the mode in which you put the refrigerator.
Yet another innovative technology is the dual fan, which means separate fan for fridge and freezer. This helps with the convertibility, prevents odor mixing and also facilitates power chill and power freeze function that chills and freezes 31% faster compared to regular mode.
If you live in an area with frequent power cut, you will also find the smart inverter connectivity feature quite useful. With this, you can connect your refrigerator to inverter without giving excess load to it.
Other useful features include– LED control panel on the freezer door; easy slide shelf that makes accessing food items easier; door alarm that alerts you when the door is kept open for more than a minute; fresh vegetable crisper that ensures your fresh produces are stored at optimal moisture and temperature and stabilizer free operations.
Overall, if you expect frequent guests, need varying storage space for your refrigerator and are unwilling to compromise on cooling efficiency, then the Samsung RT30K3723S8 is definitely a worthy option to consider.
Ideal for those who love to relish fresh produces in plenty, the Whirlpool Multi Door Refrigerator gives a whopping 32 L vegetable basket that not only keeps your veggies fresher for longer, but also prevents odor mixing with other food items you keep in the refrigerator.
Being a 3 door refrigerator, BEE doesn’t provide energy rating for it. However, users are of the opinion that they don’t find an excessive increase in the electricity bill after using this refrigerator.
Talking about the cooling technology, Whirlpool utilizes rotary compressor and insulated capillary technology that facilitates quick heat exchange and faster cooling. Thanks to multiple air flow vents, you can be rest assured that all areas within the fridge receives sufficient cooling.
Along side, it uses numerous technologies to keep food fresher for longer. The vegetable basket has Zeolite which is a high adsorption material that absorbs ethylene gas. This helps slow down the ripening process of fresh produces, thereby extending its life. In addition, the vegetable basket, freezer and fresh dairy is coated with anti-microbial additive to prevent any contamination.
Perhaps, a unique feature we find is that the fresh dairy zone has separate temperature control. So, if there are a lot of items in the dairy zone, you can lower the temperature and if there isn’t anything in it, you can crank the temperature up, thereby saving on the electricity bill.
Talking about the flaws, first of all, there are numerous cases of damages in transit. So, thoroughly inspect the product once you get it.
Next, you might find the vegetable box sometimes have excess moisture in it. This is especially found when you keep vegetables bought directly from street vendors which is warm from the sun’s heat. If so, keep them inside a brown paper bag to absorb excess moisture.
Some users also mention that the sides get excessively heated up. As this refrigerator uses a rotary compressor, the sides would generally be warmer than the ones that use inverter compressor. Also, if you keep the doors open for long or if you increase the load, you will find the sides warmer than usual. This is not really a defect or a fault with the product.
Overall, with intelligent space design, efficient cooling and energy efficiency, the refrigerator is quite a delight for all.

With whopping 330 L capacity, the refrigerator is the largest in this list. It can very well suffice the needs of a family with 4-5 members. However, it consumes about 333 units of electricity annually.
Utilizing reciprocatory compressor and with vents along the back, the cooling efficiency of the refrigerator is quite good. There are temperature control knobs on the back of both the fridge and freezer section, which helps you control the temperature setting individually.
The interiors are fairly well organized too. The fridge has an enclosed space for dairy. It also has 2 height adjustable rack and the lid of the vegetable crisper too act as a shelf. The crisper has a moisture control knob with which you can keep the vegetables at optimal moisture for long life.
A unique feature you normally don’t find in most refrigerators is that its freezer has an additional shelf. So, if you keep a lot of frozen food, you will find this spatial arrangement quite useful.
Talking about the drawbacks, you might find the materials used for the interiors to lack the finish and sophistication that you typically find in an LG, Samsung or Haier Refrigerator. Installation and after sales service are also slow in certain cities.
Though there are a few flaws, if large space within a budget is your major goal, you will love this Godrej refrigerator.
Ideal for those who don’t stock up food in freezer, the Godrej Edge Duo is essentially a single door refrigerator with an extra drawer for vegetables. In fact it looks like an amalgamation of LG GLD201ASPX.ASPZEBN and Whirlpool 3 door Protton refrigerator.
Utilizing inverter compressor, the refrigerator is quite efficient when it comes to cooling and energy consumption. It has 4 star energy rating and consumes just about 170 units of electricity annually.
The design is also quite smart. Beneath the freezer, you have a deep chill section where you can store up to five 1 litre bottles. There are 4 main shelves and ample side shelves. The vegetable box is a separate drawer which you can be open from outside. Godrej claims that this design reduces cooling loss due to frequent opening of vegetable drawer.
Inspired by LG single refrigerators, Godrej has incorporated a dry storage rack underneath. You can store in it vegetables that do not require refrigeration like onion, garlic, ginger, potato etc.
Godrej claims that Edge Duo has the largest freezer in the segment. Even so, it is lesser than what you expect from a double door refrigerator of similar capacity.
The major problem reported by users is that there are dents and damaged doors in the delivered product. So, utilize the free open box inspection facility offered by Amazon. Conduct a thorough check of the product before you accept the delivery.
Most of us don’t use freezer as much as we use the fridge. That is why the bottom mounted refrigerator design is a huge success among Indians.

Those who consume plenty of fruits and vegetables will especially love this fridge as you get 2 spacious vegetable crisper in it. Party hosts too will love it as you can make ice in just 50 minutes, thanks to the turbo cool technology.
While Samsung has LED control panel on the door, Haier has kept the panel ( which is called Internal Micom) inside the refrigerator.
