Product Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for non-standard space We moved into a new home and discovered that we needed a special-depth refrigerator because of an awkward kitchen door location. It was impossible to find a french-door model that would fit. Many "counter depth" models are too deep or too tall to meet our needs. This model fit the space perfectly. It is very quiet, cools quickly, and has plenty of storage compartments. The slide-out freezer is a nice, and unusual, feature for this type of model. The downside - we needed to reverse the refrigerator door. We've reversed refrigerator doors before and never had as much difficulty as with this model. 3/30/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by lots of room this refrigerator has alot of space, and looks really classy. It sure has a an excellent ice maker!! We ALWAYS have ice. Signed: Very pleased customer! 2/5/10
Rated 2 out of 5 by 50/50 The refrigerator itself is very attractive & very spacious. The freezer on the other hand is extremely small. Not family friendly. The top drawer pulls out only half way, and the bottom bin is arched which leaves very little room for storage. 4/21/10
Rated 5 out of 5 very good choice It's a very good and smart choice( price , look...) 7/13/10
