I was excited to get this French door fridge, but I seriously regret this purchase. Previous to this, I had a side by side fridge with an enormous ice maker (in the door) and plenty of shelf space. But it was knocking and when the ice maker broke, we knew we needed a new fridge.
I often entertain and the feature of this fridge I liked was the ability to store large trays across the fridge, something I couldn't do with a side by side. In the store, the fridge was well-lit on the inside, and it looked to have tons of storage space. Equally important, the freezer section had two drawers and looked like it could store a lot.
Once I got it home, I realized several negative issues. Firstly, the doors. The manual says if they are more than half-way closed, they will close the rest of the way. This is not true. They require a rather forceful push to close. Anything less than a slam, results in the door being bounced right back at you. I called to have it repaired then went back to Best Buy, and sure enough, even the model on the floor did not close without considerable effort. If you have small children, this fridge will spend a lot of time with a carelessly left open door.
The second issue is the lighting. Sure, when it's empty, like on the showroom floor, it looks bright. Put more than two things on the top shelf, and the entire cavity darkens. There are lights in the lower drawers but they don't keep it well lit.
The third, and not an insignificant issue is the freezer. All of the items that I removed from my side by side, did not fit into this freezer. Not only that, but frozen weight watcher meals and other boxed items that I could clearly see in my old model, are now tossed into a bin in this thing. I added a plastic basket to the top shelf to store bagged vegetables, something the fridge should have come with, but still, to find anything, you have to bend over and dig deep. The ice maker takes a few seconds to dispense Ice and it can't be done with the right door open. The ice storage area is very small and with all the ice I make, I'm not sure this will handle my needs.
The last issue is the storage of tall items. There is very little room in this fridge for door items and some of the shelves, particularly those on the left side door, can't fit anything at all. There's a narrow shelf across from the ice maker that could only store a juice packet or an envelope of apple sauce. Fitting my previous door items into these doors was like doing a jigsaw puzzle; things could only go in limited areas. Very frustrating.
There are good features to this fridge, I love the long drawer at the bottom of the fridge. The drawers for veggies and fruit are clear and visible. The shelves are not as flexible as I'd like them to be either. Overall I would not recommend this model. Get a really good side by side, you'll see everything you have on hand.
