    DO NOT BUY THIS FRIDGE. We have had this fridge for years and since day one the freezer has frozen over with ice and thus, not allowing cold air to go to the regular fridge area. We have replaced the defrost coil, we have replaced the defrost thermostat and nothing works. This leaves the defrost control board which is a costly repair. THIS IS A NORMAL problem for this fridge. This is an absolute piece of junk. And over $1500? Get yourself a beach cooler with ice in it, it will do a better job

    I love this refrigerator. The style is very sleek and would fit well in any nice home. It is stainless steel with French doors and looks absolutely wonderful. There is plenty of space inside to store everything you need. I have had it for 1 year now and haven't had a single problem with it. It keeps all the food fresh and cold without any problems.

    One of the best features is the pop pullout dispenser. You can put a 12 pack of pop in it and easily remove 1 at a time. This is a nice feature in the side of the fridge so you don't have to place the pop on a shelf and take up more space than necessary.

    It has 3 crisper drawers that come in handy for keeping fruit and vegetables crisp. It also has 5 side compartments to put other groceries in that are easily adjustable if you want to pull them out or make room for something else to fit.

    The freezer is great. It has duel racks in the freezer. It has a rack at the top to store food in with a smaller compartment behind the bigger area in front as well as on the bottom with an ice maker. The ice maker is plenty big and holds enough ice to fill a small cooler to take with you to the beach or wherever.

    The temperature controls are digital so you just have to press a button and not have to deal with knobs that accidentally get bumped and change your settings. This is a nice feature due to the fact you can see which number you have set it on and change it easily if you need to.

    Two pros of this refrigerator would be the 12 pack pop dispenser and the ice maker. One con would be the lack of room in the freezer area. It looks much bigger than it is.

    If you are someone who stocks up on a lot of freezer items then you would want an additional freezer. Another con to this refrigerator would be the lack of egg slots. If it had egg slots you could eliminate the egg carton and gain a little more room on a shelf.

    I would rate this refrigerator a 4 out of 5.
