Asset 1

Looking for the best refrigerators in 2021 within the budget of 20,000? Here are the shortlisted products based on our extensive research and customer reviews. Hope this saves your time in selecting the best one.

What was our research criteria?

We have picked only the latest models (2020) so you can be sure that you are using the latest technology in the market, still being within your budget.

Every model has a built-in stabilizer so you don’t have to invest separately in a stabilizer, thus keeping the budget in check.

Every model has great user feedback and therefore they justify their value for money.

Our observation?

Though there are lots of brands that make amazing refrigerators, the budget segment (under 20,000 rupees) is dominated by LG, however, only single door refrigerators made to the list of top 5.

Of course, if you go for older models that have the depreciated price tag, you might get a double door under 20000, but for the sake of listing only the newest products, we have not considered any older models.
