Unfortunately, I could not find this model on a showroom floor to examine it before purchasing. It's a nice fridge all around, but there are some things that have me scratching my head. The good points first.
It's roomy and convenient for a counter-depth fridge, especially one under 69" tall to fit under our top cabinets.The sliding shelves, overall appearance, lighting (even in the freezer), door alarm, and on/off switch for the ice maker are all plusses. Quiet, too. For a couple of hours we had the old fridge nearby while we swapped out food. What a difference the new one makes! We couldn't tell it was running, but then again, we do not use the ice maker so the swooshy noise of the water filling and clunk-clunk of dropping ice cubes isn't a factor for us.
But I'm wondering if the engineers who designed this model have ever been to a grocery store, purchased food for a family, and packed it into a fridge. How did they make their design decision on the bins, for example?
There are 4 vegetable bins: top row has 2 medium-sized ones with a small skinny one in the middle. This skinny little bin can only hold small items, like small lemons, small tangerines, a small head of celery, a small bag/bunch of carrots, cucumbers. You get the picture: more than half of your produce won't fit in this bin. It might be good for juice boxes and small fruits for preschoolers, but young kids are too short to reach this bin!
Why not get rid of this nearly useless silly bin and make the regular vegetable bins bigger? Would be a lot more useful for our family, that's for sure!
Then there's the wide "deli" drawer below the regular bins. It's not very tall, only about 3" clearance inside for food. Yes, you can control the temperature and make it cooler than the rest of the fridge and this is supposed to be for meats. But you can't fit much in this skimpy bin! I even tried putting in one of my serving platters to test it because the deli drawer is supposed to be for deli platters, but I couldn't get my round platter in the drawer.
Because it's very short, only items that are flat-shaped can fit, like a sirloin steak, but not a small roast. Even a family pack of hamburger can't fit easily into it unless you squish down the pack. So, if I can't fit most of my meats in this bin, can I fit veggies in it? Well, yes, but not many. It's too short to fit a head of lettuce, grapefruit, or oranges unless they're small ones. Oh, but wait. The user manual says that the deli drawer is NOT for vegetables.
So we have the fridge's regular shelves crammed to the gills with food while the sillly little skinny bin and the wide deli drawer are half empty. I'm going to have to deliberately buy food that's packaged to fit in these 2 bins because regular stuff doesn't fit.
And lastly there are the door bins. Very well constructed, good quality, nice and deep for wide bottles, but...there aren't very many adjustment hooks. The top and bottom bins can't be adjusted at all, and the middle ones have only 2 choices of alignment. That means that with all of the bins on both doors, you can have only 2 that will fit gallon-size milk jugs and tall litre soda bottles. It's impossible to arrange the door bins to accommodate more.
If the engineers had just given me more slider-hooks in the doors so that I could adjust the door bins to fit my family's food needs, I'd be much happier with this fridge. And remove that silly, useless little "whatever" bin in the middle. Who thought up that one?!
