Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good temperature uniformity in the refrigerator compartment
Wide temperature oscillation can make your food go bad faster, so it's a great advantage of this fridge that the temperature inside doesn’t fluctuate for more than 0.5°F throughout the day, which is a very good result for a cheap, comparatively large refrigerator.
Pro A lot of storage capacity for a budget fridge
This refrigerator can store food for about three people with the total capacity of 18 cu. ft.
Pro Fingerprints and smudges are not visible
Black matte finish hides fingerprints and small smudges on the housing of the fridge.
Pro Good storage organization
The inner layout of the fridge can be easily reconfigured to fit all your groceries. You can put the shelves at different heights. There is a separate drawer under the first shelve for deli meats and snacks that can slide from side to side to free some space on the shelf below. The door shelf can be tilted up to make space for tall bottles.
Con Temperature fluctuations in the freezer can cause freezer burn
The temperature in the freezer can oscillate above 0°F, which may cause freezer burn to the food that you store. To avoid that, you should configure the freezer to the coldest possible setting, and if that doesn’t work, turn the kitchen thermostat down.
Con Produce in the crispers goes bad fast
The crispers are very bad at retaining moisture, so they won’t keep your fruits and veggies from wilting for very long.
Con The compartment layout is inconvenient
Since the freezer is on the top and the refrigerator compartment, which is usually opened more often, is right below it, you will have to stoop to reach for the food on the lower fridge shelves.
Con You don’t have a lot of control over the temperature
There are only three temperature settings, without any description or explanation about the temperature range. The recommended setting keeps the fridge compartment at about 36°F, which is a little bit colder than the conventional 40°F figure.
