    Good reliable fridge - good features - quiet design
    by: Anonymous

    This is a silver colored right hand open refrigerator with bottom freezer storage.

    There is a total of 22 cu. ft of storage.

    There is no built in ice maker.

    On the refrigerator side, there are two storage bins for fruits and vegetables, each with its own humidity control to adjust for freshness. This is great for storing leafy vegetables in one bin, and root vegetables in the other.

    There is also a separate bin for storing ham, cheese, and other dairy products.

    There are 2 rows of shelves, which are adjustable and can easily accommodate 2 liter soda bottles and wine bottles.

    There is ample storage on the door side, which can store milk cartons, 2 liter soda bottles, and wine bottles. There are also slots for storing soda cans.

    The freezer consists of two sliding bins, stacked one atop another. The bins are somewhat flimsy, so the sliding mechanism may break over time.

    I have also found that the freezer door is somewhat heavy, so you may not close the door all the way, and not notice it.

    Overall, the fridge is very quiet.

    The exterior finish is non-metallic, so freezer magnets will not stick to the surface. (The sides are metallic, so we end up sticking a lot of magnets there!)

    In addition, water stains tend to show very easily, so you'll need to be wiping the surface clean everyday.

    Also, the handles for the doors are made of plastic, and they may crack over time.

    Overall this is a great, reliable fridge with some minor cosmetic issues. I hope newer models address these flaws.

    1. Adjustable shelves are convenient and sturdy
    2. Fruit and Vegetable storage bins have a convenient humidity control to lengthen freshness.

    1. Front surface of the refrigerator is non-metallic, so magnets will not attach.
    2. Door handles are made of plastic, and can crack if excessive force is applied.
