Start the New Year Fresh with a New Refrigerator

french door refrigerator with groceries

The new year is upon us and it is time to make some changes. 

Maybe you are going to commit to finally sticking to a fitness routine. Maybe you want to start eating healthier. Or, maybe you just want to keep your life clean and organized – and much less cluttered and messy. 

Whatever it is you intend to do with your new year, you need to add a new refrigerator to the list, too. It’s the perfect time to buy one – and it can give you a fresh start. Besides, where else are you going to store all those healthy meals that you so awesomely meal-prepped for the week? You know very well your current fridge is too small and too packed to handle the job. 

Kick-off the new year with a new refrigerator and watch what can happen. 

Your Refrigerator is a Big Deal

Your refrigerator is a big deal. You may not think it is anything more than a kitchen appliance that gives you a cold brew when you want one. But, truly, your household probably couldn’t function well without it. 

If you didn’t have a refrigerator, there is a good chance that your kids would get tired of living off of rice and beans or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every day. And, your significant other may stick around for a short time, but there is a good chance they will move on to someone with a healthy refrigerator. And, you, well – have you ever had a warm beer? Warm milk? Unrefrigerated bologna? See, you need a refrigerator so that you can nourish your family, both mind and body. 

Your refrigerator is a big deal and it is time you start treating it as such. 

A New Refrigerator for 2022

Whether your refrigerator is just old and rickety or it is totally outdated, it is time to treat yourself – and those you love – to something new. It is clean and beautiful and full of all the features you need to make the most of life in the kitchen!

By investing in a new refrigerator for a fresh start this new year, you are: 

Getting a clean slate. Moving the old one out and the new one in means having to go through your old refrigerator. Like, all of it. Get rid of the outdated condiments and the leftovers that have been shoved in the back for so long that they resemble a science project more than actual food. 

This always feels good and fresh. And it is such a great way to start the new year. 

Committing to staying organized. It is always so much easier to organize when you are starting fresh with something. When you have a new, updated refrigerator, you have the most advanced space that will allow you to utilize it to the best of your ability. You can organize it and keep it organized. After all, it is your new investment so you are going to want to have it stay nice and neat. 

Giving yourself space to store nourishment. With a new refrigerator, you have the perfect space to dedicate it toward proper nourishment and storing weekly prepped meals. You don’t have to move stuff around and try to find space in an overwhelmingly cluttered refrigerator. Instead, you just need to designate a spot for everything, especially those fruits, veggies, and easy grab meals – and then you’ve got everything perfectly placed in its spot. This feels good – and it helps with intentions, too. 

Making your kitchen shine. When you have a new refrigerator, you are giving your kitchen a beautiful way to shine. Imagine walking into your kitchen and being greeted with a bright, beautiful stainless steel refrigerator? It is sure to just make you feel good. And, even if you fill it with junk food and forget about your meal prep by February, you’ve got yourself an incredible gift – and have added value to your home. It’s a win-win situation no matter how you look at it. 

Thor Kitchen’s 36-Inch French Door Refrigerator

Ok, so if you decide to start the new year fresh with a new refrigerator, there is a catch – it cannot be just any refrigerator. They are not, of course, created equal. You need THOR Kitchen’s stainless steel, counter-depth beauty.

Plus, not one, but two pull-out freezer drawers give you the chance to also organize the freezer, too. Everything is easily visible and can have its own designated spot. 

Plus, it comes with all these fantastic features: 

  • 20.7 cubic feet of flexible storage space. 
  • Showcase LED lighting because it’s going to be the coolest (literally) fridge ever. You will want to show it off. And, you always want to be able to find what you are looking for. 
  • A dual cooling system maintains humidity, prevents spoiling and freezer burn. 
  • Automatic ice maker.
  • Convenient door storage. 
  • Door alarm so nothing accidentally gets left open. 
  • Adjustable racks and shelves so you can fit even the biggest items with ease.

Which Refrigerator Style is Right for Your Kitchen?

open refrigerator with groceries

Did you know that your typical household refrigerator has an average lifespan of about 14 years? This means there is going to come a time when you find yourself having to invest in a new refrigerator. Maybe that time is now, maybe your refrigerator is showing signs of decline, or maybe you are just interested in upgrading your kitchen. 

Before you can buy that new refrigerator, you have to know which style is right for you. 

If you find yourself in the market for a new refrigerator, then you must stop and take a moment to learn about your options. Over the years, there have been big changes in the appliance world – so don’t be surprised if you find yourself standing in a big box store staring at refrigerators and scratching your head. What kind of refrigerator do you need? And which style is best for your kitchen? 

If you can vividly see yourself in this situation, then perhaps you just got done searching and found your way here. Good news – we’ve got everything you need to know about which style of a refrigerator will best fit your needs. 

Top Freezer Refrigerator

Refrigerators with a top freezer are one of the most common, traditional refrigerators on the market. They have a small freezer up top and a larger refrigerated space below. This type is the most economical – in manufacturing and in purchasing. But, that doesn’t always mean it’s the best option. 

One, the doors to the freezer and refrigerator are the width of the refrigerator which may not make it ideal for all kitchens. Two, most people spend more time in the fridge and less time in the freezer — this could mean a lot of bending which is not always convenient. 

Bottom Freezer

Bottom freezers are the opposite. The refrigerator is located on the top with the freezer being a pull-out drawer at the bottom. Oddly, even though the design is only flipped, it seems to have much more space for organization. 

You don’t have to bend every time you need something from the refrigerator, though you will each time you go into the freezer. The bottom drawer can pull out quite a distance and the refrigerator door will open the width of the unit, so you will need to make sure you have the space for it. You will not, otherwise, be able to fully access what you need to.

This has been a popular choice for several years due to its easily accessed, large internal capacity. Though many have complained about having the icemaker so low in the unit. 

Side-By-Side Refrigerators

Side-by-side refrigerators are not to be confused with French Door refrigerators, though they are very similar. These appliances, however, actually have the freezer and the refrigerator side by side. The split runs the entire height of the appliance. 

This may be an ideal option for someone with a small kitchen who does not necessarily have a lot of space for doors to open or drawers to pull out. And, nearly all of these models come with ice and water dispensers in the door which a lot of consumers love. 

The problem is that, although the freezer extends the entire height of the refrigerator, it is thin and narrow. It may look like it has a lot of freezer space, but things like pizza boxes, for example, have a hard time finding a place to fit. 

French Door Refrigerator

The French Door refrigerator is a rising star in the kitchen appliance world. It gives a modern spin to the old side-by-side refrigerator – except when you open both doors, you are looking at only the refrigerator compartment. The unit is not split, but only the doors. This has a couple of benefits. 

  • You get some aesthetically pleasing style but still have wide-open refrigerator space. 
  • You can save energy and keep your fridge cooler by only opening the door where you need something. 
  • The huge space easily fits big items, like party platters and pizza boxes, etc. 

The bottom freezer is usually a deep drawer – sometimes two. This gives you the ability to keep things organized. This is especially true when there are storage drawers to keep the space conveniently separated into different areas.

Some French door refrigerators come with 4 doors, using two more french doors for the bottom freezer section. This not only keeps the freezer section colder but also allows for easier organization thanks to drawers and door storage space.  

French Door refrigerators require less space when opening which means they don’t require a lot of kitchen space to use efficiently. One thing to keep in mind is that, just like other bottom freezers, the ice maker will be in the top part of the bottom freezer. This isn’t an inconvenience to most people, but some do find the bending for ice not ideal. 

Overall, french door refrigerators are continuing to grow in popularity. 

The Perfect Refrigerator

So, what refrigerator style is right for your kitchen? Thor Kitchen has two that may be the perfect option for you. Both are timeless stainless steel (which is also easy to clean and fingerprint-resistant), as well as having french doors, a bottom freezer, cooling systems to reduce freezer burn – and so much more.

But, have you ever found yourself getting excited over a refrigerator before? Well, it is time that you do. 

There are those appliances you can have in your kitchen that just serve a purpose. And then there are those appliances you have that just make sense. That’s why you need this counter depth french door refrigerator by THOR Kitchen. It is bound to transform your life.

It comes with so many features and – it is sure to make you want to cook fresh, eat leftovers (because you can find them), and feel like you are finally doing life right. 

The best part? It may look like it will break the bank — but it won’t. What more could you ask for? Oh, right — all the reasons you’ll love it.

Let’s get to it. 

1. It Fits Your Kitchen Space

This new refrigerator is designed to into a cut-out space. This means that as you run from one end of your kitchen to the other trying to prepare meals for your family, it won’t get in the way of your flow. 

This counter-depth refrigerator is “counter-depth” so you can glide on by like the rockstar you are without ever missing a beat. Just check out these dimensions: 35.75” x 69” x 26.75”.

2. Ample Storage Space

Let’s have a moment of silence for all those leftovers that have found their way to the back of the fridge and never saw life again – may they rest in peace. 

We all need extra space in our refrigerator. Piling things on top of each other or shoving things back further into the unknown does nothing but waste food and damage containers. A refrigerator should have enough space that you can neatly organize and always know where to find things. It may sound like a dream, but it is a reality when you have this French door refrigerator. 

You will find yourself with a whopping 20.7 cubic feet of flexible storage space. And because the shelves are all adjustable you can organize the inside of your refrigerator any way that suits your needs.

Did we mention that there is ample door storage, too? No longer is this space just for cheese or salad dressing. You can house large gallon jugs in this space. Yes, you read that right. Your gallon containers of milk and orange juice can fit in the door – allowing you to free up the shelf space! 

On top of it being wonderful to be able to find what you need when you need it, you should know that you will be less likely to waste food because you can see it!

3. Enjoy an Organized Freezer

Have you ever had an organized freezer? Most freezer spaces are so tiny as if they are an afterthought in the manufacturing process. There is barely room to store all your frozen items, let alone keep them organized. 

With this two-drawer freezer, you will find that organization is really a possibility. You get two pull-out drawers that are deep and have dividing tools to help you make the most of the space. You can organize it any way you want to thanks to all the space. 

4. LED Lighting Like No Other

Trying to find one small item in a fridge full of food — and one tiny lightbulb can be frustrating. Not to mention that it sort of looks a bit dingy when you open the refrigerator door. With this French door refrigerator, you will find that it has LED lighting throughout the inside that makes it look like you are showcasing the vanilla yogurt and the mason jar of overnight oats. And, when we say throughout the inside we mean it. No single light bulb in this fridge. 

It looks nice and shines bright. And then, of course, there is that tiny factor that LED lighting can actually be energy-saving and better for the environment. Easy ways to reduce your carbon footprint should be a no-brainer. 

5. A Stunning Stainless Steel Finish

Stainless steel looks fantastic – always. It shines, it is modern, yet it fits nearly any and every design style you choose. This is a well designed refrigerator that is built to last for years to come. So it doesn’t matter what your tastes will be in the future, this stunning stainless steel finish will transition with you — and look good doing it. 

One thing to also note about stainless steel is that it is easy to clean, too. This means you can easily keep germs and fingerprints at bay while also maintaining a healthy shine.

6. All The Small Things = Big Perks

Last but not least we want you to understand that there are a lot of small things that, when combined together, lead to great perks. Things you may have never missed – until you had it. For instance – 

  • A full-width chiller drawer
  • A dual cooling system to maintain proper humidity and reduce freezer burn
  • An automatic ice maker for ice on-demand
  • A door alarm to let you know that the door has been left open
  • Adjustable racks and shelves throughout the unit

And that’s just the beginning. 

Are you ready for a new refrigerator that will outshine all the others? Are you ready to see what life is like with a fridge that works for your benefit? Are you interested in knowing what it means to be able to find – and eat – those leftovers before they start looking like science projects? 

Then it is time to take the leap and invest in the THOR Kitchen French door refrigerator. There are so many reasons why you’ll love it. 

The Benefits of an Undercounter Refrigerator

Have you ever thought about adding an under-counter refrigerator to your appliance entourage? While it may not seem like it is a totally necessary addition, you may re-think that decision after hearing about their benefits. Undercounter refrigerators may be small in size, but that doesn’t mean they don’t come with a mighty purpose. Those who have them, love them. Those who don’t, well – they haven’t discovered what they are missing yet. Today, let’s take a look at the benefits that an under-counter refrigerator can bring to your home – and your life.

A Place for Cold Drinks

Have you ever noticed how many people tend to have an extra refrigerator just for drinks? Often, this is a full-sized refrigerator found tucked away in the garage. While this is very convenient to have, giving up all that space is not. With an under-counter refrigerator, you can have this extra place to stash cold drinks without taking up too much space. And it wouldn’t even require a walk to the garage – or even require that you have a garage in the first place! Not to mention how much space this would free up in your main refrigerator.

Keep Your Refrigerator Organized

Whether you choose to use an under-counter refrigerator as a place to store drinks or not is your choice. But, know this – having the additional refrigerator is going to allow you to keep your full-sized refrigerator more organized. Try as we may, it is so hard to keep things organized. We may start off great after a shopping trip, giving each item its special place and making sure everything is easily seen. But then, what happens? That’s right – life happens. Leftovers get thrown in there, something doesn’t make it back to its designated spot, or someone moved everything looking for the ketchup. Before you know it, your organized mess becomes chaos. By having an additional space to store food items of your choice, you are essentially taking some pressure off of your full-sized refrigerator. You are allowing things to be spread out and organized much more neatly so that everything can be seen – and be accessible. It just feels good.

Allow Your Kitchen to be Streamlined

Streamlining your kitchen may not be something you have taken into too much consideration. But how many times have you been rushed to cook dinner or get breakfast on the table for your kids before school? Sometimes you need to move fast. And when you have to run back and forth to the refrigerator – even if it means walking 8 steps in another direction – you are taking time away from your cooking or food prep. Let’s not even get into how much extra time you would need if your refrigerator is disorganized. Make use of an under-counter refrigerator by putting the things you access most frequently in it. This grab-n-go idea will allow you to get your meals prepared much faster than you’d otherwise expect. It makes the whole process of cooking much easier as you can freely flow around your kitchen and grab exactly what you need in a jiffy.

Help with Weekly Meal Prep

Do you participate in weekly meal prep? So many people are on this trend, spending Sundays prepping lunches and such for the week so that they are eating healthier and eating homecooked meals rather than hitting up the drive-through or ordering takeout. While this weekly meal prep has helped many people, it doesn’t come without its frustrations. The biggest one being – where to store the food! For many of us, it is hard enough just to store the food we buy from the grocery store. Planning and prepping and having 5-7 prepped meal containers can cause complete congestion in the refrigerator. And, depending on what you have, keeping it organized won’t even help. Do you know what will? You’ve got it – an under-counter refrigerator. Prep your meals and put them in this fridge for convenience.

Use it Anywhere in the Home

Just because it is a refrigerator doesn’t mean it has to be installed in the kitchen. This compact appliance can be used in a variety of different places, including the outdoor patio or grilling area, the garage, the basement or bar area, or even the den. They are perfect for holding drinks, snacks, condiments, and other items that you want to conveniently access in whatever specified area they are housed in. Don’t feel restricted with this under-counter refrigerator. Instead, allow your creative juices to flow so you can determine just how it can make your life even better by bringing it home!

Top if Off with Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is beautiful and timeless. And it fits nearly every design style, whether contemporary, modern, traditional, elegant, farmhouse and more. By investing in a stainless steel under-counter refrigerator you can rest easy knowing that it, too, will flow seamlessly in uniform with your other appliances. Perhaps what makes it even more helpful is that if you choose to install this refrigerator in other areas of the home, you can do so without worry. The shine and elegance that come with its finish mean it will fit nicely anywhere in your home regardless of your design style or color scheme. This also means that it won’t look like an eyesore! Instead, it will blend wonderfully with everything else in your home.

Save Energy

While you will save energy for yourself by not having to walk to your full-sized refrigerator and dig for what you need, that is not the energy we are referring to. Designed using energy-efficient LED lighting and a convection cooling system to help maintain a consistent temperature, you can find comfort in knowing you are keeping your energy costs down – which is always a benefit. Plus, you won’t be holding that refrigerator door open for too long anymore in search of what you need. In short, your energy costs for your refrigerator maintaining its temperature will also drop.


If you are still on the fence about adding a stainless steel under-counter refrigerator to your home, remember the benefits of convenience and savings. Two important things to consider when purchasing a new kitchen appliance.

Add an Outdoor Kitchen Refrigerator to Your Grill Station

Outdoor Kitchen Refrigerator

It’s that time of year again. As spring nears, you may be thinking about making improvements to your outdoor grill station. One of the easiest things you can to do improve your grill outside is to add an outdoor refrigerator.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at how to add an outdoor kitchen refrigerator to your grill station.

Add an Outdoor Kitchen Refrigerator to Your Grill Station

There are some things that just make sense. You know, having popcorn while watching a movie. Putting blinds up in the windows of your new home. Getting gas in your car before it starts flashing E. And, wearing sunglasses at the beach.

These and more are just things that make sense to do to make our lives a little more content and happy, aren’t they? Well, there is something else that just makes sense, too – and that is adding an outdoor kitchen refrigerator to your grill station.

Whether you have your backyard decked out or you are just starting to build your place of blissful escape, you need a refrigerator.

Here’s how to add an outdoor kitchen refrigerator to your grill station in time for spring.

Finish Your Outdoor Oasis

Your backyard can either serve as wasted space. Or, it can be transformed into a space that you will use regularly – you know, a private outdoor oasis. Many people work to make this a reality and it doesn’t require too much effort.

For instance, think of the feelings and such that you want to try to achieve with your upgraded outdoor space. Perhaps you want it to be welcoming, comfortable, enjoyable, lit up, and so lyrical. Sound about right?

By adding some outdoor furniture, an outdoor rug, bistro lighting, and some speakers, you have already begun creating a magical space. Now, add a table, a grill, and a refrigerator – and you never have to leave your backyard! In fact, you have created the perfect entertaining spot for your friends and family.

Added Convenience at the Grill

When you are spending time outdoors in the nice space that you transformed, grilling some delicious eats can be tasty. In fact, just as the kitchen is the heart of the home and it becomes a social area when cooking, so can be your outdoors.

Create a comfortable outdoor setting for your friends and family to congregate in addition to that kitchen of yours. But watch out – there is a good chance that this outdoor space will quickly become a favorite. It will be cozy and, when you add conveniences like a grill and refrigerator, it makes it that much more desirable. Who wouldn’t want to be here?

Now, let’s talk about that grill for a moment. How many times have you been in the middle of cooking outdoors only to realize that you forgot a seasoning or sauce indoors? Or how the inconvenience of having to juggle all the food, keeping all the cold food indoors while you grill, then having to rush to bring it together.

Enter Thor Kitchen’s under-counter refrigerator. This is a game-changer for your grill station.

Upgrading to a Pro Style Refrigerator in 2020

Pro Style Refrigerator

Is it time for a new refrigerator?

If so, you may be interested in upgrading to a pro style refrigerator this year. These types of refrigerators include a variety of features and benefits unavailable in other models.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at some of the reasons that make a pro style refrigerator stand out from the rest.

Upgrading to a Pro-Style Refrigerator in 2020

Every trip to the grocery store costs you money – money that you worked hard for and earned. The last thing you would want to happen is to lose your perishable, refrigerated items because you should have upgraded your appliance and never did.

And, because when something goes wrong, it usually goes really wrong – what if your refrigerator stopped cooling right after you unload your bi-weekly grocery haul?

Don’t leave this to chance. Instead, make the decision now to upgrade to a prostyle refrigerator in 2020.

Why Upgrade to a Pro-Style Refrigerator?

Pro-Style refrigerators are durable and strong. They are built with the ability to handle heavy use while designed with elegance and class in mind.

Truth be told, you have the ability to purchase any sort of refrigerator on the market. But, why would you want to purchase a refrigerator that does not offer you anything but cold food in return? With a pro-style refrigerator, you have an appliance that:

  • Will fit well with any design style you should use for your kitchen.
  • Will stand the test of time with heavy use in your kitchen.
  • Is easily cleaned – looking sharp, new, and shiny at all times.
  • Works for you, accommodating nearly anything you need it to.

The appliances you invest in should serve two purposes – the function they are designed for and pulling the design and flow of your kitchen together.

A pro-style refrigerator can do just that. In fact, why don’t we take a look at a couple of pro-style refrigerators that are hot items in 2020?

Thor Kitchen Model Number HRF3603F
