Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have the 17.5 cu ft model. Too bad it's no longer being made, or available. We got ours at Best Buy. Great bargain, especially with the "open carton" discount, because we took a unit on display. The design cleverly lets us maximize useful space in our tiny kitchen, which we're remodeling. Not only is it only 28 inches wide, but also not having door handles and having a cleverly designed storage door that permits removing the storage bins with the door open only the full 90 degrees, it solved some big problems for us. (Nonetheless, we are allowing a 30-inch space for the future just in case, because we're also installing granite counter tops. But a 30-inch wide refrigerator with door handles and doors that would have to be opened past 90 degrees to remove the crisper bins would have required a 35-inch allowance.) The refrigerator could be quieter, but the manual makes it clear that is a price paid for energy efficiency. We have only one beef with the design. There's one shelf that features a right-to-left sliding storage bin, and that bin tends to tip forward and spill out when it's opened or when items are stored in its front. Another things we disliked was the "standard" ice maker. We consider an ice maker unnecessary and a waste of freezer space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I bought this Refrigerator, Stove, and Microwave for my farm. The stainless finish is easy to clean and I especially the clean ability of the electric glass stove top. The refrigerator is great, runs very little, is quiet, and very energy efficient. I am very pleased I chose Whirlpool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product I purchase a 18 cu.ft. Top freezer unit to fit my small kitchen. I shopped around and found that Whirlpool was the only Company that offered a small unit with a built in ice maker in the freezer and didn't charge extra. I live on a very very limited income so this was a blessing to be able to have a great product with a little extra to make my life easier. Thank you .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my kitchen My first all black appliance and I love it. I bought a black front stove and microwave several years ago and now my kitchen has matching appliances and it looks great. I love the extra large shelves in the door and especially the lowest full length shelf in the door which allows me to put water bottles there easy to reach.
