Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has worked out well for an apartment refrigerator. I like the option of the handles built into the doors as people sometimes renting apartments are not very careful and break the handles off.This seems to be a great product so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor design This fridge would be a decent one but it has a couple of major design flaws. The glass shelves bow with even a light amount of weight on them, and we have a good amount of food in our fridge. The deli drawer requires so much force to pull it out that it might as well be pad locked. Other than that it's not a bad little fridge, but those are two pretty huge design flaws.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fridge overall but can be a little nosiy. I liked the size of this fridge it is perfect for two to three people. The size of the shelves in the door are really nice but you have to be careful how much you put on the bottom shelf, mine broke after 2 weeks. My power bill drop quite a bit with this energy star fridge which was great, our old one that came with the house was built in the 70's, but after a few weeks it started sounding loud. Its not as loud as the old fridge by far, but it does make a loud nosie when it first starts up. Overall I really like the fridge and am happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really love this refrigerator.. As soon as my wife saw your refrigerator she said that this is the one she wanted, and no other would do.... She really love the look of it the style and especially that it was all white.... She said it had a real sleek look about it, and liked the glass shelf's but the feature that really made her happy was the ice maker...She just wish that there was just a little more room in the freezer section it's just a little tight in that section.... But over all we are both very happy with our purchase, and suits all are needs for now......

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent fridge for a decent price While it isn't the best fridge I've had, it certainly isn't the worst. A few weird items with this. The tray in the freezer doesn't go all the way to the back, so stuff will fall down in the back. Also, there is nothing to hold the ice cube bucket/tray thing in place. So, if it happens to move forward, the ice will go behind the ice cube bucket/tray and then fall down to the bottom level. Also, some of the trays in the main compartment of the fridge don't work very nicely. It is a bit noisy, but as long as you don't sleep in the kitchen, I think you should be o.k. It was a decent price too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic and Practical But Perfect This fridge is really basic but it has everything I want and need. It is a replacement for an old, and not very nice, model that was old and not very nice when I moved into my home thirteen years ago. It has nice glass shelves, good fruit and vegetable bins, a moveable meat and cheese drawer and plenty of space. The freezer is spacious as well and has an ice maker feature. Both fridge and freezer have good door shelf space as well. I am really very pleased with this appliance and am glad I made the purchase. The price was most reasonable too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Freezer is small, ice maker takes up a lot of room. Our family uses the drawers because we eat a lot of vegetables. Drawer holds a head of cauliflower, 6 tomatoes, carrots and 6 bunches of broccoli. Drawers are roomy. This is a great refrigerator for a family of 1-2. We like the no handle design. Easy to open and keeps clean. Refrigerator is quiet. The ice maker is quiet also. Easy to roll and move about for cleaning behind it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty Awful Refridgerator Both the freezer and fridge doors starting squeaking/creaking after about a year or so. The compressor/motor started getting louder and louder as the moths went on. The three draws inside are so poorly designed that if you close them all the way, when you try to open them it pulls the whole shelf with it. Unfortunately the home we purchased was outfitted with all Whirlpool appliances, I have to say that all are similarly sub-standard. The Micowave is also loud and the exhaust fan is terrible, basically useless. The oven light burnt out quickly and the pan draw is an absolute joke. You need to use two hands perfectly spaced from each other and push at a perfect direction, you MIGHT be lucky and keep it on the rails. I would not recommend this brand to anyone.
