Pros:Narrow width, priced right, bottom freezer a great feature.

Cons:Non-magnetic door, not counter depth, no water or ice dispensers in door.

The Bottom Line: Recommended for a basic no frills bottom freezer fridge, especially when space is tight.


We purchased this fridge approximately a year ago during a kitchen remodel. This is a bottom freezer, 19.5 cubic foot stainless fridge. We have the icemaker but have not installed it yet. It is a very basic, but nice looking, fridge--there is no water dispenser, ice in the door, etc. We chose it for a couple of very specific reasons: we wanted a bottom freezer, so that we didn't have to bend over to get things out of the fridge. This is a huge benefit--I remember when we first started using it, and having our food at eye level was very very nice. Also, we wanted a stainless fridge. Lastly, and this was our main constraint, was the fact that we needed as narrow a unit as possible. The location of the fridge in the kitchen made width critical, and when working with our design the swing of the door and drawer were significant factors. It is worth noting that the freezer drawer is a pull out and not a door, which also allows a narrower space. The only really narrower units include built-ins like Sub Zero that have compressors on the top, which are also 4 times the price, and exotic brands like Liebherr and Equator. We considered both of these; however, both would require such an odd-sized opening that we'd have to find a replacement of odd size in the future should the fridge need replacing, or else rebuild the cabinets, which were very expensive. Also, and especially with the Equator, the capacity is a lot lower. We also considered other brands with similar models, such as Fisher and Paykel, but these others either were pricier or made our designer nervous with door swing-arcs. The main cons include: it is not counter-depth, but extends about eight inches past our counter, and the door is not magnetic (so no children's paintings on your fridge!). We are purchasing a second home this month and have decided that the non-magnetic surface is annoying enough that we are getting a panel-accepting fridge this time. Also, we previously thought getting a door water dispenser was not that desireable; since then we have changed our minds. So we will be getting a side by side this time. They're usually wider, but we don't have the width constraints this time around.
