    Purchased this refrigerator as a gift for a family friend and he LOVES it! This fridge has plenty of storage, everything looks well organized, and the bright lights in the freezer and refrigerator make it so easy to see everything inside. The doors practically shut and seal themselves. The icemaker and water dispensers work great and the ice has a neat shape. We accidentally broke one of the door’s bins during installation but that should be easy to replace. The price was right, and the fridge has a high-quality look and feel. I would purchase again, and I highly recommend this product. Thank you Best Buy for making quality affordable.

    Great refrigerator for the price

    After months of looking for a low-priced side-by-side refrigerator, I chose the Amana. And I am not disappointed so far. After about a month, it does everything well. The food is kept cold and it is quiet. The ice and water dispensers work well. And it is big... lots of room for everything. This is all I'm looking for. It is not nearly as flexible as more expensive refrigerators. You cannot move the shelves all over the place, for example. But for basic needs, it cannot be beat. The best part of this new refrigerator was Best Buy. The installers were the best I've ever had for a major appliance delivery. I got constant notifications about when they would arrive. They called and emailed. They were friendly and knowledgeable. They did everything just right.

    Just one thing

    I love the look and feel of this refrigerator don't get me wrong. But there's just one thing. It isn't very accepting of different sized cups at the dispenser. The water button a d the ice button are so close together that when I try to get ice sometimes, water falls over the top of my cup and onto the floor. The only cups you can really use are ones that are short enough and can stand under the dispenser without you tilting a taller cup. The tilting caused you to depress both buttons at the same time and causes spills all over your floor. A tiny bit annoying, but manageable.

    Paid nine hundred dollars for it, was on sale during holidays. Great fridge. No complaints, really. Been using it for 3 months now. Initially the handles were coming off but when best buy came back they fixed it and it's been great since then. Wouldn't buy a Frigediere or another well known brand over this one, just because of brand. I could've paid $50 more for a Frigediere but really, although Amana is not well known I wouldn't let that play a factor in your decision. This is a great fridge.

    Good value for price. Nice wide and deep removable glass shelves. Very spacious inside. Not the best looking exterior, but as I said, good value for the money for a 24.5 side by side fridge. I bought it for a rental and I’m told the handles slide off if you pull slightly upward when opening, I’m not certain if Best Buy installed the fasteners incorrectly and this is why this is happening. They have to push them up and off entirely and replace them and pull down hard on the fasteners to reset them. It’s decent.

    Had a power surge from a recent storm and lost a few things including our fridge, after explaining we needed something quickly we discovered an open item that fit all needs and with the open item discount and other incentives got a fantastic deal and the fridge has been wonderful. I don't really use the ice dispenser in the door but rest of family loves it and without having to open the door for ice it helps keep the temp stable in freezer.

    Lovely Industrial looking Appliance

    Perfect looking for an Industrial Loft style home. Inside unit could use a cheese drawer on the regular refrigerator side and a light on the freezer side but this unit for the price is great. Somewhere along the production line, the manufacturer changed design for the water filter (installation/removal) and front wheel leveling. Bottom grill is not as shown in the supplied owner's manual. Not a problem.

    Great Refrigerator for the money

    Replacing an Amana that I had for 30 plus years. This one does not have all the bells and whistles of my previous one (I really miss the sealed Cold Milk Storage and Meat Drawer). I do not care for the way the un reinforced tempered glass shelves are set up, there just isn't enough adjustment room, but for the money it is great value. Cools a whole lot better than my 34cf LG that cost 4X more.

    This fridge was a breeze to install and setup. No fancy electronics, no muss, no fuss. Love the solid door shelves, no holes for things to fall out of. The ice maker and water dispenser work really well. Only inconvenience present is that the ice and water dispenser buttons are a little too close and water button can be pushed accidently when getting ice. Otherwise, I really like this fridge.

    We were looking for something to replace our fridge which was damaged by the recent hurricane that passed. This was on the cheaper side but it’s quality sure isn’t. It has all the bells and whistles you would want and need. My wife loves the crushed ice setting on the dispenser. Nothing amazing but considering what a premium fridge goes for, this is a winner in my book.

    We have had less expensive refrigerators and we have owned 3 door models that cost more than this. This model is a great size, looks nice and is very functional. Black sides, in between the big deep models and the counter depth seems just right for our counters. Wish it had one more drawer for cheese.

    This fridge compares to whirlpool in every way with a couple hundred off the price tag. It is rummy and it’s French doors provides easy flow in my galley kitchen. The light is also a regular bulb so down the line I can simply replace it for a couple of bucks unlike most fridges that you have to buy the expensive led type bulbs.

    Bought it as an open box item for a reduced price! I've had it for over a month and haven't had any problems. Purchased the extended warranty, just in case. Simple and basic features. Delivery was great! They placed it where my old one was, they were friendly and professional. It was a seamless experience.

    Never worked. Customer service insisted we wait for 24 hours for it to start cooling. Never did. Then when we finally got BB to initiate a return, a replacement was not available for ten days. We replaced from another merchant who delivered in two days. New unit started cooling in ten minutes. Replacement unit great.

    After looking at the fridge in the store and then getting it put in the kitchen. I know this was the best choice for our family. The guys that installed it and the store employee that helped with the sale were awesome. We are definitely coming back to buy more when I get the fridge paid off

    Not a ton of bells and whistles but good fridge for the price. Ice fills up fast. The fridge is pretty roomy. Not a fan of the location of the filter, at the kick plate. Also, it seems too easy to accidentally nudge the water dispenser button when you’re just trying to get ice, so watch for splashes.

    I like the painted black much better than a stainless steel black. This fridge is quiet (I sleep 15 feet from it and never hear it). Has lots of space. No fancy features, but makes just the right size ice in huge amounts. All in all love it, maybe the best fridge I ever had. Not expensive!

    Really like this refrigerator, works great, is quiet and at a super great price. Only thing I didn't like about it was that when I ordered it, I thought it came in black stainless steel, but when delivered, found out it only came in white, black and regular stainless steel. However, still worth it!

    Perfect bang for your buck, This refrigerator is good sized works well and only has one small issue. The stainless steel front is hard to keep clean and free of fingerprints. Otherwise I made a very good decision and I’m very happy.

    We are very satisfied, at this point, with our AMANA side by side refrigerator-freezer. The freezer is working very well and keeping ice and frozen foods very cold. The refrigerator is also working well and if roomy and we especially like the glass shelves and roomy interior.
