  • Customers really liked the bright light that lights up the interior of the refrigerator really well, giving GOOD ILLUMINATION throughout.
  • One customer particularly liked the three Glide'N'Serve drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator compartment, which not only SLIDE in and out but also are individually temperature controlled.
  • A comment was also made about the value of the two WIDE CRISPERS but noted a minor problem, which was that they could only be fully pulled out when both refrigerator doors are opened.
  • A number of customers felt that NOT having a Dispenser was a real advantage, making the refrigerator more SPACIOUS, as no room was taken up with dispensing paraphernalia.


  • This is a refrigerator that really does need to be properly set up and this is something that is not always considered when purchasing a refrigerator.
