This is the quietest refrigerator we have every owned.
Extra center drawer which cans fit in perfectly comes in handy and this model has plenty of door shelves so you can easily find everything in your frig. with ease.
Absolutely a great buy. Money well spent !!

We love the French door style with the bottom freezer. The space is great and the foods store exceptionally well. Produce is always crisp. A great buy.

This refrigerator fits tight cabinet spaces
We crossed our fingers when this was the ONLY French door refrigerator of any brand that would fit into our kitchen cabinetry without major renovation. Something about the styling and construction of the upper part of the doors and hinges gives it a slightly lower profile than all the other French-door refrigerators we researched. Measure carefully if your fridge needs to fit into custom cabinetry and you might find this one works while the rest don't.
Quite happy with the refrigerator portion of the appliance, but the freezer must be packed carefully or the door won't close easily or tightly.

This product is great!
We purchased this refrigerator in Sept. 2013 and have been using it now for four months. We love it!
The icemaker works great; there is an on-off switch on the basket in the freezer so if you go away you can simply turn it off. However, we went away over Christmas and forgot to turn it off, and when we came home after being gone for just 4 days, well, there was no overflow. Just the right amount. There must be some sort of sensor down there because I constantly use the ice for cold drinks, etc. and it constantly replenishes as needed, and the cubes are big. This product runs quietly, but occasionally you will hear a "knocking" sound which goes away quickly. My old frig you could hear the compressor on it anywhere in the house, it was that loud. But this product is super quiet. The exterior is an upgraded stainless finish which has a high gloss/luster to it, but the sides are a "gray color", kind of ugly. However, all the brands have that grey finish on the sides. I simply covered up the one side by putting all my magnets back up, and that took care of that issue. This product keeps the food very cold, and they recommend to not make any changes "to the factory settings." The "slide out middle drawer" is great. I had chicken in there for 3-4 days and when I went to cook it up, it did not smell bad and looked just as fresh as the day I brought it home. Normally, I could never keep chicken that long in my old frig, which I had for 20 years. I would have to freeze it or cook it. Likewise, the other drawers keep the veggies crisper and fresher much longer than my old product. One thing about this product, the doors don't close automatically. You have to push them shut. I had to get used to this, but its no big deal. There is a bell that chimes if you leave a door slightly ajar; happens in my house a lot, but we are used to it, and thank goodness for the bell/chime. Also, we had to remove the two top shelves to accommodate our big bottles, for ice tea, juice, soda, water, etc. Another nice thing about this product, you can easily see and find stuff readily. It has great LED lighting, and the shelves are not that deep so at a glance you see everything. And there is plenty of space on the doors with adjustable shelves, that provide quick and easy access. The freezer is on the bottom, and that took some getting used to from our old frig which had it on top, but you do get used to it. And besides, its a lot better to stand up straight and get stuff out of the refrigerator than to have to bend over and search for stuff like in our old frig. The very bottom has some sort of "bar" that is flush with the floor which prevents stuff from rolling under it. Also, this product does not come with any type of ice filter; but our plumber simply hooked one up that sits on the floor behind the unit since we have a water outlet back there. This product suits our needs perfectly, and I hope I get 20 years out of it; by the way, the compressor is warrantied for 10 years. This new stainless product, along with my new stove and dishwasher, really adds the finishing touches to my remodeled kitchen.
