    AN excellent well-featured model
    by: Anonymous

    This refrigerator is an excellent well-featured model. It consists of a French door refrigerator on the top and a pull out drawer freezer on the bottom. In my opinion, this arrangement maximizes available storage space of the unit. I much prefer this arrangement to the side-by-side set up.

    The unit has a water/ice dispenser on the left door as well as several electronic controls for temperature, light, "Fast Cool", humidity and door alarm. The digital readouts are bright and easy to read. The door alarm is great at identifying situations where the doors aren't completely closed. This feature has quickly alerted us to this issue several times, saving both electric usage and humidity buildup.

    The main negative is frequently the ice dispenser will have a cube or two stuck and then those cubes will fall to the floor after the glass is removed from the dispenser. The unit also has a built in water filter, eliminating the need for a special pitcher in the refrigerator or special unit connected to the tap for the sink. The adjustable glass shelves are solid and sturdy. The brackets inside are strong and unobtrusive.

    The movability of the shelves to maximize interior space is easy and shelves feel solid when attached to the brackets. The deli drawer feels solid and slides smoothly.

    On the other hand, the pull out crisper/vegetable drawers on the bottom feel cheep and don't slide in and out smoothly or easily. In door adjustable shelves feel solid and sturdy and adjust easily, but walls for the door shelves aren't tall enough and heavy objects can fall out while opening the doors.

    The freezer and drawers inside the freezer pull out smoothly and feel very sturdy. We can easily fit whole turkeys and frozen pizza inside the freezer. No more bent or toppings to one side frozen pizza!

    Overall, the 25 cubic feet of the refrigerator and 18+ cubic feet of the freezer provide us with more than enough space and the unit has exceeded our expectations.

    Pros:
  • Door alarm,
  • French door up/down arrangement.

    Cons:
  • Door shelves aren't tall enough,
  • vegetable drawers feel poorly made.
