Our fridge at home is nice and has a water cooler built in which is great especially as you can save so much on bottled water this way. The water comes out nice and chilled but the main problem I have with it is that once you open the door you see that the water reservoir takes up a lot of room and doesn't leave you much space for other things when it comes to door storage. Inside the fridge there are three movable shelves that can be adjusted as needed depending on what you are keeping in there. We have to move the lowest shelf upwards to make room for the cooked ham at Christmas for example. There is plenty of space in the salad area and this drawer works great at keeping the leaves crisp for longer.
The water cooler uses a Brita water system so the water is not only chilled it is also filtered to remove any impurities that may be lurking in our tap water. We use the water from the fridge in our kettle to ensure the water is as clear as possible. This means the water will take a little longer to boil seeing it's chilled but at least it's clean. The big water jug doesn't come off the inside of the door and that makes cleaning it a bit more fiddly than it need be. The fridge makes the odd noise like most do, but it's not disturbing at all and I can still hear the TV with it gurgling in the background.
The freezer is quite cool pardon the pun, it is frost free just like the refrigerator part, and this means no cleaning out frozen solid back panels like we had to do with our old fridge freezer. It has three separate sections and these are see through but these do tend to cloud up with condensation making it heard to see what's inside. You can wipe the outside but if the inside of the drawer is misty it makes very little difference.
The top is the smallest area but the two bottom drawers are nice and big. The top area is narrow and works well for the ice cube trays and narrow foods like pizza and frozen fish. The two other drawers have plenty of room for all the other things we keep in the freezer and it does a great job at freezing ice cream that has began to thaw on the way home in the car. It freezes it quickly so we don't end up with loads of ice chips in the ice cream. This is because there is a function to fast freeze. This makes the freezer work at top speed and the lowest temperature it can. It works very well and is also great for quick chilling of wine and drinks just remember they are in there. There is an alarm that you can set to remind you of this but you have to remember to set it (which I never do). This is a fancy refrigerator that not only works well but it looks great and is easy to clean.
I have now had this fridge - freezer for around a year and I have been very impressed with it. I paid around £330 but it was reduced from around £500 as it was an ex-display model.
The fridge has a number of functions which make it more exciting than a normal fridge. Inside the fridge, there are 3 shelves and a bottle rack in the main part of the fridge, there is plenty of room on the shelves to fit in lots of food! There is enough room to fit 5 bottles of wine and also 2 large salad trays in the bottom of the fridge. The main drawback in terms of space is the water cooler and dispenser within the fridge, which takes up most of the room in the door. This means that you can really only fit 2 open bottles standing in the door.
The water cooler is great, especially as it contains a Brita filter and so is fantastic on warm days. The only problem is that the jug containing water is not removable from the fridge so is difficult to clean.
As for the freezer, this is locted at the bottom of the fridge. It contains 3 seperate areas with the top one being the smallest and the bottom 2 much larger. The top one is a bit too small and can only really fit one pizza in it, so a bit of a waste of space. The bottom 2 drawers are very large though and fit in plenty of food. There is also a function on the freezer to give fast freezing when you have just returned from the supermarket and also an alarm so you can put your beer in the freezer without forgetting about it! Furthermore, there is a choice of temperature for both the fridge and freezer but I have just left it at the default settings and everything seems to remain a good temperature. There is also a childlock on the fridge.
The fridge and freezer are frost free and so far this has remained the case. I have not seen as much as one flake of frost within it!
Overall, I think the fridge is solid and well built and definately worth the money I paid for it.
Bought this fridge for about £300 from a retailer that has now unfortunately gone out of business. The fridge has small wheels on the back edge so that it can be moved easily, even when it is full of food. The doors are light to the touch but close very positively. There is also an electronic function on the top front of the fridge which tells you the temperature of both the fridge and the freezer- it's more of a gimmick than any real use. The quality gets only four stars as the trim for the fridge handle fell off in the shop while we were looking at it. Other than that the build quality is very high.
Inside the fridge there is lots of room. There are very big and wide, clear plastic shelves which are easily removed for cleaning. There are also a couple of door shelves which are very study. There is also a massive drawer at the bottom for storing all your fruit and veg! The built in water dispenser is very good. It will hold about 4 litres of water and has a built in BRITA filter which is quite easily replaced. It is recommended to replace the filter every month but with only 2 of us in the house we usually get about 6 weeks use out of each one. The only negative about the water dispenser is that part of it is permanently attached to the fridge and therefore is quite tricky to clean.
The freezer section is also quite large. There are 2 very deep drawers which are big enough for most things and a smaller 'quick freeze' drawer at the top. Haven't really used the quick freeze feature yet. The freezer is supposed to be frost free and after having the fridge-freezer for a year it is! There hasn't been a single bit of frost.
Overall the fridge-freezer is very good and so far has been very reliable.
