    Basic but capable refrigerator
    by: Anonymous

    This is a basic but capable refrigerator that gets the job done. The 18.5 cubic foot interior is roomy enough, but the freezer drawer gives it a good amount of additional space. Note that the freezer drawer actually swings out, rather than pulls out like the drawers in most other refrigerator models.

    It?s useful in various ways, but the only problem with this arrangement is that if you have a bad back, bending down all the time to get everything can be a bit of a pain. At over 66 inches it?s a fine height, big enough to be roomy but not so large that it overwhelms your entire kitchen. It?s not exactly beautiful, but its neutral look would help it blend in with a lot of different kitchen designs.

    The internal shelving is adjustable, which comes in handy if you like to buy a lot of beverages in tall bottles or other things that never seem to fit quite right in other refrigerators. Amana?s ?Softsound/Quiet Package? does indeed keep the unit remarkably quiet, and since it is ?Energy Star? qualified, that means it actually uses 15 percent less power than other, standard refrigerators. Finally, this model excels at every refrigerator?s true calling: keeping things cool.

    A lot of refrigerators have warms spots, especially as you get out farther from the compressor, but this unit actually stays well-cooled from top to bottom. If anything, it arguably keeps things a little too cool; our unit is prone to ice things up a little, unless we set it on the warmer side. Still, better too cold than not cold enough.

    - Roomy.
    - Quiet.

    - Bending to reach the freezer can be tough on the back.
    - Tends to keep things a bit too cold.
