What is the best way to show only folders in the search results?

I've tried adding a search refiner for Content Type but the Content Type search refiner doesn't show up. And yes, I've added a new mapped property, as the original Content Type mapped property is not able to be used as a search refiner.

What you can do is use the IsDocument property: IsDocument:0 Here

Append this to your search: ContentType="Folder"
