If there's such a thing as an "it" appliance, the French door refrigerator is the "it" fridge these days. Just turn on the TV and take in a few home decorating or cooking shows, or open a magazine and check out the articles and ads, and you'll see this model popping up all over the place. The style started taking off in 2005. That's because it looks great and is unbelievably functional. French door fridges are also a subtle way of giving your kitchen that sleek, industrial look -- you know, the one that says "I cook like Gordon Ramsay on a nightly basis."

And talk about add-ons: A few of the options you can get on a French door fridge include external digital temperature controls, door bins, a door alarm, LED lighting, a serving drawer and an in-door TV (so you can watch "Cake Boss" while you bake your own masterpiece).
