Samsung - RFG297AARS French-Door Bottom Refrigerator 29 cu ft

Energy Efficient

Energy Efficient

We bought the Samsung fridge about a year ago after our GE model died. It is the biggest fridge you will see today. Most fridges max out at 25 cubic feet, this fridge is 29 cubic feet. To put this in perspective, our kitchen has a standard size cut out for a fridge. Our 25 cu feet side-by-side GE had about an inch clearance either side and a couple of inches on the top. The Samsung has about a quarter inch all around.


It is a French door model with a bottom freezer. One of our gripes about the GE side by side was its inability to fit a frozen pizza in the freezer compartment. The Samsung has a special slot at the front of it's freezer door specially for frozen pizzas! This is the kind of attention to detail that makes the Samsung such a good refrigerator.

It has all the normal sliding trays inside, and one of the doors can hold two gallons of milk. Like most of the newer French door models, it does have through door water and ice. Unfortunately the icemaker is probably the one weak point of the refrigerator.

When the freezer is on the bottom, the icemaker has to take space within the refrigerator section. By keeping the icemaker as small as possible, it maximizes the volume in the refrigerator, but obviously reduces the amount of ice available.

One of special features of the Samsung is the dual coolers, both the fridge and the freezer compartments have their own cooling mechanism, so that the refrigerator can run as efficiently as possible. All in all, we are very happy with this refrigerator.

PROS
1) One of the biggest refrigerator's available.
2) Can fit frozen pizzas
3) Nice looking
$0 Good range of features

CONS
1) May not fit in your whole for your fridge.
2) Ice maker is not adequate for a family of five using ice all the time.

Happy with my French-Door Fridge -
by: Anonymous

Last month I went to my friend?s house. She showed me her new refrigerator SAMSUNG RFG297AARS which had been gifted to her by her mother. The refrigerator was fabulous and amazing. It looked so elegant and beautiful that I could not stop looking at it.

When I came back, I decided to buy the refrigerator of same model for my own new home. I consulted my husband. He was too very impressed by its looks.

Moreover, the refrigerator was not much expensive and was easily affordable for us. Now, I have been using this refrigerator regularly for more than three weeks and I am very happy with my decision of buying. My family too appreciates my decision.

The refrigerator is commonly known with the name of FRENCH DOOR REFRIGERATOR. It has large number of special, additional and unique features which are at present not available in any other refrigerator available in the market. My French door refrigerator has side-by-side doors and its freezer is present at the bottom.

The refrigerator is very spacious and has too much space for keeping the foods. The refrigerator is quite big in size but still it is not very bulky. It means that it can be easily moved from one room to another.

The refrigerator comes with a special feature which reminds you when you left its door opened. What my family likes the most about this wonderful product is its efficient and quiet working. It does not make any noise and because of this we cannot stop ourselves from opening the door to check whether it is working or not.

Hence, the Pros and advantages of this refrigerator are that it is not very expensive, it is very spacious and it looks very elegant due to its trendy design. Besides all these pros and advantages there are a few cons of this product. The main drawback is that it has a low capacity to produce ice.

The other drawback is that it has only two freezer shelves. Moreover, it occupies a large space. Instead of this, I love this product very much and highly recommend it to others.
