ActiveSmart Fridge - 17 Cu. Ft. Counter Depth French Door with Ice and Water
French Door refrigerators bring theatre into the kitchen with wide-open shelf spaces and unobstructed access. The 790mm model is perfect for kitchens that are tighter on space but still need a big fridge for growing families or plenty of entertaining. This French Door is smaller on the outside, roomy on the inside and even easier to get into with a spacious full-extension freezer drawer and storage bins.

Product Reviews
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Design flaws Beautiful looking refrigerator and keeps everything fresh. Pros: excellent water dispenser that takes up no space inside the door. Cons: A MAJOR DESIGN FLAW: The crisper drawers, though they appear to be single wide, sit in a double-wide tray; you can only access the single-wide storage bins by fully opening both doors and pulling out the entire double-wide tray. In other words, you always must have both doors open to get at anything in the fridge. This was a major disappointment that doesn't show up on the web site photos or descriptions. 1/10/13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid Product Great fridge in a compact design. Had been mulling a few options for awhile, but as soon as I saw this new model come out, I knew it would be a perfect combination of size and performance in a french door configuration. It really hasn't disappointed either. The large vegetable drawer doesnt really bother me, I just look at it as a trade off to get the convenience of a french door model in such a compact design. Makes our kitchen seem like we have so much more space after we got rid of our old clunker. 2/20/13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great refrigerator I have just had this refrigerator for a few weeks but so far I love it!!!!! I didn't have a lot of choices considering the size I needed and the features I wanted in a refrigerator. I was a bit nervous in making the purchase but I couldn't be happier. The refrigerator looks fabulous in my looks like a high end, quality appliance. The interior is very spacious considering its smaller footprint and the interior lighting is fabulous. It functions very well as I have been monitoring the temperature with a digital thermostat. The ice maker is a bit slow in ice turnover, but that isn't a big problem for my husband and I. Beautiful refrigerator!!!! I am thrilled with my purchase. 6/22/13
