    A truly a wonderful device.
    by: Anonymous

    Recently, our old refrigerator died on us. It just stopped cooling. It seemed like it might be an easy fix, but it was quite a dated appliance and we decided to look into our options. In our search we happened upon the Whirlpool EB9SHKXVQ at a reputable big box hardware store. They happened to be running a special on all Energy Star appliances, which this refrigerator happens to be.

    The Whirlpool EB9SHKXVQ is truly a wonderful device. Compared to our older model Side-By-Side fridge, this is better on all aspects. One thing my wife and I liked about this device is that it is a Bottom-Mount refrigerator, meaning the freezer portion is on the bottom, and the fridge is on the top.

    It was a little more expensive than a more conventional refrigerator, but after owning it for over a month now, it is a great asset. No more stooping over to get to the bottom shelf of the refrigerator to pull out a casserole, or cookie sheet. Now the bottom shelf is nearly at waist level.

    The Energy Star really, REALLY, does make a difference. I never thought it would make that much of a difference, but wow, compared to our old device, this thing must be sucking have the electricity than the old.

    The Energy Guide on the Whirlpool EB9SHKXVQ is 448 kWH, which equates to having a yearly operating cost of $48. It runs so quite at times, I forget it is running, and the low electricity costs, this thing will pay for itself over time!

    One of the only downsides is that the device is only is 18.5 Cu. Ft. For the cost, we could have gotten a larger conventional (Freezer on top) refrigerator. However, after using it for over a month, it does not seem small by any means.

    We have an abundance of space, and the fridge-on-top is really a nice feature.

    Pros: -
  • Fridge on top
  • Freezer on bottom (No more stooping over!!!)
  • Built in ice-maker
  • Energy Star!

  • Price was a bit higher than conventional,
  • Freezer on top refrigerators
  • Small size, in Cu. Ft. for price
