Not only do refrigerators with glass doors offer a clear view of their contents, but they are easier to clean, more energy-efficient and more elegant in appearance than standard refrigerators. For these reasons, refrigerators with glass doors are becoming more common in residential kitchens.
Thanks to the fact that they offer a look at their contents without the need for opening the door, refrigerators with glass doors help owners save on their electrical bills. There is no need to open the door to check on food supplies when making grocery lists, for instance. Refrigerators with glass doors also light up kitchens at night, reducing the need to turn on overhead lights when getting a late-night snack.
Many owners of refrigerators with glass doors say they are more inclined to keep their refrigerators organized and neat since they, and any guests who may be in the kitchen, can see inside them so clearly. This saves time in terms of having to do periodic major inventory purges, they say.
While refrigerators with stainless steel doors show finger prints and smudges, glass doors are more forgiving. They are also easier to clean, requiring only wiping with a clean, damp cloth, versus the use of cleaning agents.
