Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Looks and Performance I love this fridge. Appearance wise, it's one of the best refrigerators I've seen. The ice maker works well so far and you can pour ice and water at the same time from the door. It's not whisper quiet, but I don't hear it outside of the kitchen. 10/24/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fridge We were looking for a less than 33" wide Stainless side by side fridge with water/ice in the door. We looked at the Whirlpool, LG, & Maytag stainless side by sides. These 32"-33" wide units are more rare than their 35" wide counter parts; however many older homes can not accommodate anything larger than 33" wide. We omitted the whirlpool (very similar to the Maytag) as most reviewers stated that the ice maker, while totally located in the door with the dispenser, was problematic and most had issues leaking water on the floor...something about ice getting stuck as it passed from the maker to the dispenser and then melting over time onto the floor. We omitted the LG as our other stainless appliances were whirlpool...but it probably would have been an excellent choice as well. Although, we have owned many whirlpool appliances and they have all lasted a very long every time. Never have we had a bad experience with whirlpool. Since Whirlpool now makes Maytag and the come off the same assembly line... we were not too concerned with purchasing a Maytag either. We have lived now with the Maytag for a month now and are thrilled with everything about it. 1) Beautiful smooth stainless finish...the nicest of all our appliances. Still matches the others very nicely. 2) It has a third fridge drawer. Perfect! Now we can separate Meats/cheeses, fruits, and digging through vegetables for deli meats etc. 3) Freezer has one light which is fine, but the fridge has two (lower and upper). Awesome amount of light easy to find things. Fridge is larger than freezer so it needs more light etc. 4) Fridge has ALL very attractive clear plastic or glass drawers, shelves, and door bins. No cheesy mix of ugly opaque white only bins and attractive glass shelving mixed together. Everything shelves, bins, and drawers match on this unit perfectly. 5) Fridge door bins are all very large and hold a lot of everything small or large. Larger bottles of milk or wine fit very nicely in several bins, not just the bottom etc. 6) The freezer is typical and with the ice maker inside so you do give up some freezer space, but it is a large and spacious as is possible. Works well for us. Also the door bins are well proportioned holding items a bit better than our last side by side. 7) Fridge runs quiet. Not whisper quiet as-if you could not hear it run, but very quiet and melodic...simply a low pitched soothing hum. We have wood floors so the sound travels more than carpet and we feel its very quiet. 8) The door handles are beautiful, metal, and feel terrific on your hands when you open the unit. Very, very nice sturdy handle. They are slightly different than our other matching whirlpool appliances which concerned us initially; however, they look great with our other appliances. I guess if you are a total perfectionist you may not like it, but we are very pleased. Also, the seem longer than some other brands...even the whirlpool which I think adds to the beauty. The doors are actually slightly rounded on the outside edges that run from the top to bottom of the door hinges ... again different than our squared whirlpool range / dishwasher; however, it all blends in and looks good together. Since Fridges are the only appliance that stick out farther than counter tops ... it is MUCH safer than the sexy, but squared off doors of other units.... especially if you are have small children etc. 9) The unit is called monochromatic which means both the vent on the bottom, the side panels, and the small hinges at the top of the doors are all done in a med/dark gray color very close to stainless. Really nice even though our range and over the range microwave are stainless/black. Everything still looks very good together. Again if you are a perfectionist...maybe not. 10) Lastly, my favorite part...the awesome ice/water dispenser. This is a single paddle system for both ice and water so it's not as wide and obtrusive as double paddles. It's a very attractive, high quality stainless look matching the doors perfectly. The drain pan is polished stainless and very easy to clean. There are soft amber/brown indicator lights that tell you the status (water, ice, crushed ice, light, dim lights) that turn off completely after 30 seconds. The actual light that illuminate when filling a glass with water/ice are actually 2 LED lights that look wonderful in daylight or night time. Looks very high-end reflecting off the stainless etc. However the best part is the's not a paddle, but a gray/charcoal colored heavy duty rubber pad that covers or hides a switch or an ugly paddle I'm guessing. It sort of hold the drinking glass in place when you push it in (v.s glasses sliding off the paddle) and automatically turns on the light. When you pull the drinking glass off of softly shuts off both the water and dims the light as they both shut off (like the newer car overhead dome lights) Much nicer than the abrupt on/off paddles, etc. we are used to. The light can be manually turned on/off and has a dimmer setting as well. We use it as a nightlight...looks and works fantastic. LED's last forever so no burned out light bulbs to replace, yeh! The water dispenses twice as fast as our old whirlpool side by side and it's filtered. No waiting forever for a glass to fill with water. Also it can add water while you are adding ice simultaneously. Yes, I know it's hard to wonder why an ice/water dispenser could create so much joy, but it just works so well and looks so good compared to the others we have used or just would not believe it; and we use it a lot everyday as we are water drinkers. Lastly...the ice cubes are smaller so they fit in your sports drink containers...instead of having to use crushed ice that melts more quickly. Anyway, we are totally thrilled with this unit. It was definitely worth an extra couple hundred compared to other cheapest units that would have likely had many compromises with the slightly cheaper price tag. P.S. The matching dishwasher from Maytag (almost exactly like our whirlpool) is fantastic as well. Much nicer than our older unit in many ways...just like the side by side review above. 1/22/11
