This fridge has a clean, slick design and many handy features, such as a water/ice dispenser and an air filter. It's not, however, the best option for a tight budget, because the running costs are pretty high.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Fridge surface is smudge-resistant
The stainless steel housing of the fridge is covered with fingerprint-proof coating. Even though it's not entirely immune to smearing, the surface is very easy to clean and it stays neat for a long time.
Pro Air filter that eliminates odor
The fridge is equipped with a compact air filter. It cuts down on the odor that comes with storing different kinds of food. It's a nice feature that makes using this refrigerator more pleasant.
Pro A drawer with separate temperature control for delicate foods
There is an isolated container called the Chill Drawer that you can set to a different temperature than the rest of the fridge. It's great to store delicate foods: deli meats, cheese, fruits, or veggies that require separate temperature and humidity conditions.
Pro You can easily reposition the fridge shelves
The plastic shelves are easy to pull out and put into new slots. Thanks to this, you can easily reconfigure your fridge's inner layout to fit any type of product, like a wide pizza box, or a tall bottle.
Pro Water and ice dispenser
Built into the fridge is a water and cubed ice dispenser. You can always grab a glass of filtered drinking water or some ice for your drink.
Con High running costs
With this fridge you won't be able to save much on electricity. The side-by-side door setup releases all cold air at once when you open it, so extra energy is used to re-cool it. The water and ice dispenser also requires a lot of power, in fact, it adds up to 20% of the running costs.
This refrigerator is quite noisy. Several users have said in their reviews that even after calling technicians several times, loud vibrations and other noises still persist.
Con Inconsistent temperatures in different areas of the fridge
The difference in temperatures in different areas of the fridge, excluding the freezer, can be as dramatic as 15 °F. This makes it much harder to keep all the food products fresh.
Con You can't reposition the shelves in the freezer
There aren't any additional slots in the freezer to change the shelve position, so you're stuck with the pre-set layout.
Con Thermostat often displays inaccurate temperature
Because it's hard for the sensor to catch the overall temperature inside the tall and narrow fridge, the figure that the thermostat displays is often inaccurate. If you require precise temperature, this isn't the fridge for you.
Con Annoying setup and maintenance
You need to plan carefully where you place your refrigerator. It has to be hooked up with your plumbing in order for you to use the water and ice dispenser. The built-in water and air filters will require regular replacement. You also have to remember that these devices tend to malfunction and break quite frequently and so will require periodic repairs.
