  • The unit is Energy Star-qualified which gives you a lot in power savings. The unit is also very quiet so you can enjoy the ice maker and water dispenser working all hours of the day without worrying about noise.
  • The side by side design gives you a lot of space to store your food. Side by side models offer more space, from the fridge to the freezer.
  • The small doors that this unit has, as opposed to one larger door, makes it the perfect choice if you have a small and crowded kitchen. You also get to save more power, since you only open one door at a time.
  • Shelving spaces are shallow so you need to stack items on top of the other, eliminating the risk of losing track of food that are hidden at the back portions of the unit.


  • The larger size of this unit makes it hard to keep in a small kitchen. It is also harder to transport.
  • The narrower build of the shelving makes it quite hard to store wider food items.
  • The larger size means that you eat a lot of power cooling the large interior.
