Refrigerator that shows good temperature uniformity, runs quietly, and is easy to clean. It also has durable, spill-proof shelves. However, it's not the most economical option.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro The shelves are well made
The shelves are made out of tempered glass. It's more durable that normal glass and cleans easily after being stained.
Pro Consistent temperature across all areas of the fridge
The difference between temperatures isn't significant across the areas inside the fridge and the freezer. This is an impressive feat for a side-by-side refrigerator, which tend to have a tall and narrow design that leads to underwhelming temperature uniformity.
Pro You can easily reposition the fridge shelves
The shelves are easy to pull out and put into new slots. Thanks to this, you can easily reconfigure your fridge's layout to fit any type of product, like a wide pizza box, or a tall bottle.
Pro Runs quietly
You can barely hear the compressor, and there aren't any additional noises.
Pro Water and ice dispenser
Built into the fridge is a water and ice dispenser. You can always grab a glass of filtered drinking water, or some cubed or crushed ice for your drink.
Con Ice dispenser is poorly designed
The dispenser spits out water and ice everywhere. So unless you want to clean up a giant mess, be sure to use a wide and tall glass.
Con High running costs
You won't be able to save much on electricity with this fridge. 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 cost.
Con There isn't a drawer with separate temperature/humidity settings
Not having a separate drawer with temperature and/or humidity controls is a disadvantage if you want to keep deli meats, fruits, and veggies fresh for as long as possible.
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.
