We love our new fridge. The only couple of deference’s we see are the name brand (Whirlpool versus Maytag) but they are both Whirlpool brands now and the handles. The handles on the Maytag look more high end and industrial to us-see pics. It’s hard to tell from the pics we found for the Whirlpool version but the ice makers might be different too. And yes, we checked and you can definitely open the deli drawer almost completely with the doors ajar at 90 degrees. Happy shopping!
