Whirlpool ED2KHAXVS Review

Whirlpool ED2KHAXVSThe Whirlpool ED2KHAXVS refrigerator is a side by side model with 21.7 cubic ft of space. The stainless steel exterior is very stylish and classy-looking. In this review of the Whirlpool ED2KHAXVS fridge, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth the $1,350 price tag. As far as looks go, I think they did a pretty good job. The smooth stainless steel in combination with the luxury design handle bars give it a nice modern look. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this model: exterior water and ice dispenser, PuR filtration system, adjustable spill-guard shelves, back-lit slide controls, humidity controlled crisper, full-width freezer bin, snack pan, a temperature controlled meat pan, adjustable gallon door bins, child lock, digital temperature control, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. For a refrigerator of this size and price, this is actually a decent amount of features. Of course, even though it has some high-end features doesn’t mean they all work exceptionally well – but, we’ll see if that’s the case next.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Whirlpool ED2KHAXVS refrigerator. While I do like the customizable shelves and door bins, the space still seems a little cramped to me – especially the freezer side. A number of users have also had problems with the ice maker either getting jammed up or going out completely. The ice maker can tend to be a little loud as well – but, this is a pretty common problem. All in all, I think this is a fine model, but I wouldn’t say it’s spectacular or anything. While it has its issues, the Whirlpool ED2KHAXVS refrigerator still has its good looks and decent dependability on it’s side. Overall, I’m giving this model a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

LG LFX25978ST Review

LG LFX25978STThe LG LFX25978ST refrigerator is a French door model with 24.9 cubic ft of space. The exterior is has a beautiful stainless steel finish. In this review of the LG LFX25978ST fridge, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth the $2,300 price tag. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect to find on this unit: premium LED lighting, adjustable gallon door bins, humidity controlled crispers, full-width and adjustable temp gliding drawer, contoured doors, hidden hinges, exterior water and ice dispenser, door alarm, accelerated ice making system, spill protector glass shelves, electronic temperature controls, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. As you can see, this refrigerator just about has it all. I love the slim ice maker in the door and all the extra door bins for easy storage. To me, this model feels a lot more spacious than it actually is – which is a good thing.

Alright, onto the negative aspects of the LG LFX25978ST refrigerator. One problem I’ve noticed among users is that the ice maker tends to get stuck sometimes. Usually you just have to stir around the ice at top, but it can get a little annoying. Another issue I have with this model is that some of the parts seem a little cheap – this is especially disappointing because this model is expensive. Probably the biggest issue holding people back from buying this unit is the higher price tag. I’m not saying it’s not worth the money, it’s just that you could easily get a competitor model for $500 less. Even with these few issues, I still really like the LG LFX25978ST refrigerator. Overall, I’m giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating.

Maytag MBF2258XEW Review

In this review of the Maytag MBF2258XEW fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth buying. While the exterior is nothing too special, it’s at least built well. Here’s a quick rundown of the features found on this unit: factory installed ice maker, adjustable deli drawer, a glide-out freezer drawer, spill catcher glass shelves, gallon door bins, electronic temperature controls, reversible door swing, upper and lower sliding freezer baskets, and this unit also uses 10 percent less energy than the Energy Star qualifications require. Currently, you can buy this refrigerator for just over $1,000. For the features you get and the size it is, this is a slightly above-average price tag.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Maytag MBF2258XEW refrigerator. One thing that I’ve noticed is that the space seems a little cramped.

electrolux-ew23bc71iw

Electrolux EW23BC71IW Review

Electrolux EW23BC71IWThe Electrolux EW23BC71IW refrigerator is a French door model, with 22.6 cubic ft of space. Although it’s not huge, it does at least have some nice style. In this review of the Electrolux EW23BC71IW fridge, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of this model, then decide if it’s worth the $3,000 price tag. To be honest, the price is on the upper fringe for it’s size range – so, it better have some great features to make it worth the money. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get on this unit: a perfect temperature drawer, self-closing freezer drawer, external water and ice dispenser, wave touch controls, Pure Advantage water and air filters, 4 luxury-design glass shelves, 3 full-width gliding freezer baskets, and an ice maker that can make up to 9 lbs of bullet shaped ice in 24 hours. As you can see, a lot of the features on this refrigerator would be considered a luxury. For the most part, they are definitely an asset.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Electrolux EW23BC71IW refrigerator. Unfortunately, a good portion of users have had problems with the ice maker on this model. It tends to break down pretty easily – plus, if you have a bigger family the ice maker may not keep up with demand. The wave touch panel is also pretty finicky. It normally works fine, but can randomly give you trouble as well. The freezer is fine, but probably a little smaller than I would like. There’s not a lot else that I have to complain about with the Electrolux EW23BC71IW refrigerator. Overall, I’m giving this model a 3.9 / 5 star rating.

Frigidaire FRT21IL6JM Review

Frigidaire FRT21IL6JMThe Frigidaire FRT21IL6JM refrigerator is a top freezer model, with 20.6 cubic ft of space. Although the exterior is not true stainless steel, it still looks pretty nice. In this review of the Frigidaire FRT21IL6JM fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses – then we can determine if it’s worth purchasing. First off, I have to mention that the $600 price is very reasonable. This will definitely be one of it’s best assets. Here’s a rundown of some of it’s other nice features: factory installed ice maker, two humidity-controlled crispers, clear dairy door and deli drawer, gallon door bins, a full-width freezer shelf, Never Clean condenser, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. For the most part, this is a very basic refrigerator. However, it does have a couple features are not always included with cheaper units.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Frigidaire FRT21IL6JM refrigerator. One thing that’s unfortunate about this model is that you can tell it’s made with pretty low-grade materials. For the most part, this only affects the cosmetic stuff and not anything more serious. Although, there are a couple users who have had problems with this model not cooling properly. Another thing I don’t like is that it does not have a freezer light. This is especially annoying when trying searching for frozen items in dim lighting. All in all, there’s not a lot else that can go wrong with the Frigidaire FRT21IL6JM refrigerator. I do wish the door bins were adjustable, and a couple other minor things like that. I’m going to give this model a 3.7 / 5 star rating, I think it’s a fine unit for how much you pay.

ge-gdss0kcxss

GE GDSS0KCXSS Review

GE GDSS0KCXSSThe GE GDSS0KCXSS refrigerator is a bottom freezer model, with just over 20 cubic ft of space. The stainless steel exterior gives it an elegant touch. In this review of the GE GDSS0KCXSS fridge, I’ll go over the positive and negative aspects of owning this model. This unit costs right around $1,250 – so, it’s definitely not the cheapest, especially for the amount of space you get. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on this model: snack drawer, bright Reveal lighting, a two-level freezer storage system, factory installed ice maker, upfront temperature controls, humidity controlled crispers, four glass shelves, gallon door storage, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. As you can see, this refrigerator does come with a few extra features – considering that most other models of this size are very basic. I especially like the snack drawer, and that it comes with an ice maker. The lighting is also exceptional for a less expensive model.

OK, now let’s go over the negative aspects of the GE GDSS0KCXSS refrigerator. I’m not a huge fan of the two-compartment system in the freezer. The items put in the bottom shelf are a little hard to get to. Also, the freezer is quite a bit smaller than I am used to. Another thing I wish they could change is the sides. I wish they made the entire thing stainless steel, and not just the front of the unit. A couple other things that people complain about: the door handles being a little cheap, and the door storage not getting adequately cooled. I think if the GE GDSS0KCXSS refrigerator were priced a little lower, I would like it a lot more. However, it does quite a few issues as it’s currently being sold. With that in mind, I can only give this model a 3.7 / 5 star rating.

amana-a9rxnmfws

Amana A9RXNMFWS Review

Amana A9RXNMFWSThe Amana A9RXNMFWS refrigerator is a small top freezer model, with only 19 cubic ft of space. The exterior is actual stainless steel, so that helps a lot with it’s stylish looks. In this review of the Amana A9RXNMFWS fridge, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this model, then decide if it’s worth the near $800 price tag. The black trim around the doors is nice, but I almost wish the entire thing was stainless. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this unit: spill-saver glass shelves, adjustable door bins, deli drawer, dairy center, humidity-controlled crispers, up front temperature controls, and a wire freezer shelf. The interior is pretty basic on this refrigerator, but that’s pretty common for a model of this size and cost. The half-width glass shelves are a nice touch.

Alright, onto the negative aspects of the Amana A9RXNMFWS refrigerator. For one thing, I wish it had a factory installed ice maker. However, you at least have the option to purchase it separately. Another thing is that it’s not Energy Star qualified. This doesn’t necessarily mean it will use a lot more electricity than your old unit – however, it will use more than the average of this size. Also, I don’t like the fact that there is no freezer light. This can make it difficult to find items in dim lighting. Overall, the Amana A9RXNMFWS is a no-frills refrigerator – or an almost no-frills model, but you get the idea. It’s very basic, yet looks nice and does a decent job with everything it’s meant to do. I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating.

lg-lsc27914st

LG LSC27914ST Review

LG LSC27914STThe LG LSC27914ST refrigerator is a very sleek side by side model, with 26.4 cubic ft of space. The current price of this model is right around $1,200 – so, in this review of the LG LSC27914ST fridge, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses and decide if it’s worth the money. My first impression is that it looks great, has enough space, and is priced very reasonably. Next, we’ll take a closer look at the features to see what’s included with this unit: spill-proof glass shelves, digital control pad with LED display, an exterior water and ice dispenser, water filter, humidity-controlled crispers, child lock, door alarm, gallon door bins, accelerated ice machine, and it also has sensor technology to keep the temperature steady. I do like that this refrigerator seems very roomy – they did an excellent job of organizing the shelves and containers.

OK, let’s talk about the negative aspects of the LG LSC27914ST refrigerator. First off, the ice maker tends to spit ice out onto the floor. The only way to get around this issue is to hold your cup up very close to the top, which can get annoying. Also, the water seems to come out pretty slow. Another issue I have is with the cheap door handles. They look pretty nice from a distance, but when you get up close and pull on the doors, you can tell they are made with sub-par materials. I know this is one the cheapest models this manufacturer makes, but it would still be nice to get half-way decent handles. A very small number of buyers had problems with the LG LSC27914ST refrigerator breaking down, so I’m thinking it was more of a fluke that it broke down soon after purchasing it. Overall, I do like the look and features on this unit – I just wish they could change those few issues. As is, I can only give this model a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

GE GBSC0HBXWW Review

GE GBSC0HBXWWThe GE GBSC0HBXWW refrigerator is a bottom freezer model with just over 20 cubic ft of space. The current price of this model is right around $800. In this review of the GE GBSC0HBXWW fridge, we’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this unit then decide if it’s worth the money. As far as appearance goes, it seems to be very tall and skinny-looking. The all-white exterior is OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on this model: bright interior lighting, gallon door bins, adjustable glass shelves, snack pan, two vegetable crispers, a NeverClean condenser, and up-front temperature controls. I wouldn’t say this refrigerator has a lot of extras, but it at least has the basics covered. I think the lighting is exceptional, and I like the split glass shelves as well.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the GE GBSC0HBXWW refrigerator. A couple things I wish this model had: an ice maker, spill-proof glass shelves, and adjustable door bins. I know these things are not really necessary, but it does make it a lot more attractive to buy. A couple users have had problems with it breaking down after a few months, but I think this is pretty unusual. The overwhelming majority of owners really like the GE GBSC0HBXWW. This refrigerator is very basic, yet it does a good job with everything it was designed to do. Overall, I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating.
