I bought this to replace our side-by-side Kitchen Aid fridge, which I wasn't too impressed with. While we tried hard to blow out our wall behind the fridge so we could have a normal sized one and not a counter-depth, it just didn't happen. So, we bought this one after A LOT of research. It's been a few months and I'm very happy.
I can see everything clearly in the fridge (eye-level).
I don't waste as much food because it's not nearly as deep and abyss-like as my old side-by-side fridge. Thus, I use everything up.
I like the ice maker in the door. It doesn't waste valuable fridge space.
The crispers actually keep the food super fresh. Waaay better than the old one.
Water filter works well. I could tell the difference immediately in quality.
The shelves on the door aren't as numerous as my old fridge. But, honestly, I don't miss them.
Mu husband and daughter don't like that you have to open both doors to access the deli drawer. But they said it's a minor inconvenience (and it's their only complaint).
**I read previous complaints (which made me a little wary of buying the fridge) about the water dispenser dripping and issues with the ice maker. We haven't had any problems with either.
Also, I have a deep chest freezer in our basement, so I really can't talk about this freezer as much. BUT I would say that if I didn't have that, I might be slightly disappointed in the organization (maybe size) of this one. It has a couple of shallow drawers that are nice, but then there are 2 deep sections that hold the rest. I use it for large chickens and frozen veggies though. So I don't mind the lack of separation (shelving) that a side-by-side freezer provides.
Overall, I would definitely buy this fridge again. I'd recommend it too. :-) And I will never ever ever go back to a side-by-side fridge!
