We decided to finally replace our 25 year old refrigerator. It is not freezing things well and the wife wants the water/ice in the door option.

We narrowed it down to either a French door or side by side and we finally decided on a counter depth GE side by side.

What style do you have?

side by side, water ice in door. It will have a cube stick in the chute, and drop on floor later. There is no drain for the door, so spills need daily cleaning of the little basin.

Works OK. Drinks are very cold. Freezer is fast.

Had a traditional one in our old house, no options, worked fine. New house came with a side by side, took a bit to get used to, I'm still not sold on it. It does have water and ice in it, not sure if we'll fix if they break, but maybe the wife will change that opinion once she gets used to it. I don't like the notion of it breaking after a few years, and I swear it has less space or somehow uses it not as well.

Side by side with bottom freezer and ice/water in the door. Seems to work well. LG with linear compressor. Makes us drink water more often than other beverages.

I think I read it in Consumer Reports that a side by side was best for people who get food out of the freezer often. They had pros/cons for each design.

I think that would be considered a French door.

GE Signature side by side bottom freezer, counter depth. This was purchased when we replaced our kitchen in 2011. No issues, but I did replace the two upper door gaskets last fall, the originals were showing some cracks.

Bottom drawer freezer style. Our Side by Side froze too much lettuce and had to be repaired every year.

Our Repairman said the most reliable was the old freezer top style.

Whirlpool side by side that is15yrs old. I had to replace a circuit board on it once and a broke shelf holder. Other than that works well. My biggest complaint is the black catch pan under the water/ice dispenser is all crusted up with calcium and lime I think. I tried soaking it in vinegar and also lime away with no luck, I wish there was a product that actually worked.

Side by side but I think we will switch to French door at some point. Both the fridge and freezer are too narrow. Impossible to store a large frozen pizza horizontally, for example.

Also, it's a Samsung and while freezing or refrigeration work well, it tends to leak under the door if the door has been left open for too long.

The wife wants to get one of those that have a large tablet on the door but I don't think a fridge would justify a $3k price tag

Old Top freezer. I think the bottom freezer is silly.

Better yet would be a separate fridge and freezer.

MIL has standup freezer in breezeway - -great solution.

Anybody have one of them counter depth Kiwi-made Fridges?

Look like a nice design at first glance?

My wife is vertically challenged, so we have a small side by side bottom freezer.
