We have a Samsung with French doors, a drawer underneath the fridge that can be refrigerator or freezer space, and a freezer drawer on the bottom. I love the freezer, I like the middle drawer, but other than that I hate my fridge! It's only 3.5 years old and I can't wait to get rid of it. The stainless steel exterior shows fingerprints and water drops and they are difficult if not impossible to remove. There was a sticker that went across the top of the fridge that I've never been able to completely buff out (no one would notice but me, but I see it). The ice maker is terrible---sometimes it makes ice, and most of the time it just freezes a big chunk of water that has to be chipped away and removed. To make that matter worse, it's difficult to remove the ice box. The water and ice dispenser on the door is also a big thumbs down. It is awkwardly shaped, slow, and our ice dispenser will dispense a shot of water (probably a few melted cubes of ice) into your cup before it dispenses ice, so if you are drinking something other than water, it will water down the drink. Also, it's not tall enough for most water bottles, and the ledge isn't deep enough for a bottle to sit on it, so you have to hold the cup or whatever. I can't count on ice to be available, so I buy ice and it takes up precious space in my bottom freezer, which is sad considering that I have an expensive fridge.
Once inside the fridge, there isn't enough tall space for milk, tea, etc. There are lots of shelves but I do so much rearranging. The crisper isn't large enough for a fridge this large. The door shelves are nice and deep, which is great. But the spring on the door is messed up (we don't know what happened, it just literally quit working) and it was expensive to fix, so my dh fixed it, and it held up for about a year and now it's messed up again. So you have to shut the left side before the right side because the spring is messed up.
In our previous home, we had a Kenmore Elite and it was wonderful. It was practical. There were these awesome bins on the fridge door that held fruit for easy access and we loved that. The ice maker and water dispenser were amazing. I could press a button to have the fridge dispense a certain amount of water in ounces or cup measurements. It was deep enough that I could place any of my cups/glasses and one of my pitchers on the ledge beneath the water and leave it to dispense the proper amount of water. If you had a tall container, the dispenser would pop out and you could fill something tall. Never had a problem with it. The fingerprints buffed out much easier than on my Samsung. I would have loved to have taken it to our next home, but it became part of the negotiations of the house and so we bought a new one.
I am the kind of person that would gladly keep using something for a long time until it fell apart. I don't have to have the best and the latest things. But this fridge has brought out my inner brat, and I am so ready to get a new fridge.
People that come to my house love my fridge and we've had so many oohs and aahs over it. I try to hide my disgust so that I won't seem ungrateful. I told my dh that it is a great party fridge---it can hold lots of drinks, a giant cake, and trays of food, and it looks cool, but it is NOT a good fridge for everyday use.
