We were looking around the store for refrigerators. My wife was comparing the features on every French door model. She was looking at the appearance, shelves, ice bin, door dispensers, drawers, bins….When I saw this Café with the Keurig on the door, I told her to stop looking (which she didn’t) because I knew what she was going to want to buy.
When she did make it over, she lit up and asked "How can this be?" "This is brilliant!" She then opened the doors and quickly realized that the shelves, bins and ice bin were just like all of the others, or maybe a little nicer. She spent about a week online reading reviews and found mostly great comments about this refrigerator. The three recurring, negative comments were: compressor is a little louder than most refrigerators, the water dispenser and Keurig, drip a little, after dispensing and the Keurig backs water up in the door and leaks.
Well, the Keurig backing water into the door seemed to be fixed with an update to the Keurig apparatus and I assumed mine would have the updated version (which seems to be the case and I have not had a problem with it). The water and Keurig do drip a drop after dispensing. No big deal though, the drop of water sits on the tray and evaporates shortly. The drop of coffee evaporates and at some point as I am passing by with a damp paper towel, I wipe up the residue. BTW, the tray rocks....you can pull it out to double it's size and a pot will sit there. The noisy compressor....It is slightly more noisy than my previous refrigerator. If I had to guess, standing in front of it, my old refrigerator ran at 5 decibels and this one runs at 5.2. Barely noticeable and I would much rather have a heavy-duty compressor rather than a weaker one that was slightly-less noisy.
The water dispenser will show what volume of water you are dispensing. It is accurate up to 2 cups, but after that, it gets wildly inaccurate (always over fills). I used a measuring cup to verify these findings. The second thing....you can set the amount to fill but you have to hold the pot against the lever for the water to flow. I would like to set the water, push the pot against the lever and let go. No big deal, but I recommend this update to the software. Seeing how the refrigerator has wifi, I would also like it to connect to internet radio and have a descent speaker. Now, this is a luxury request, but, come on man, it has a Keurig!!!
So, to sum: My only issue, to date, is that the water and Keurig drip a drop after dispensing. This issue is so minor and I bet most refrigerators do this, that the other features of the refrigerator far outweigh them. If I had another house, I would buy another of these refrigerators in a minute.
