Advantages: Looks good
Disadvantages: Water part takes up too much room
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.
Summary: Nice fridge, pity about the bulky warter parr
