        Comments about Whirlpool 17.7 Cu. Ft. Refrigerator (No Freezer Included) - Stainless Steel:

        This review is only for installation and aesthetics. We have yet to use it as it is still cooling.

        We did have a professional appliance installation company install these units with the trim kit.

        Overall it did not seem like too hard a job to put together the trim set and slide the fridge and freezer into place. However, there was a bit of tweaking to get two separate boxes (the fridge & freezer) and trim kit to all look as one unit. Total time of install start to finish was close to two hours.

        Here are the various tweaks they had to make while installing:
        1. Needed to make their own levelers as the units did not have their own. (so, initially the units looked like they were leaning back)
        2. Lots of adjusting on doors to make sure they were even with one another and still level. Sort of a standard with any fridge install but a little tricker being two different units.
        3. The center trim kit that goes between the units was keeping the fridge from closing completely - need to assure spacing is accurate between both units from top to bottom.

        The main thing the installer left me with was that these are two separate units and only connected by a small plate at the top. So, it is possible that we may experience some movement when opening and closing the doors.

        It would seem that the design should be updated so that there is a bracket in the middle that connects both units.This way you would have a connection that runs the height of the unit keeping an even gap, creating more connection than just the small plate at the top, and would also provide a place to attach the center trim.

        Overall, it looks great and has met our expectations for the overall look in our kitchen. If you bought or are considering purchasing these items it is because you don't or can't spend 10k+ on a big sub-zero - I don't blame you. If they operate as good as they look, we will be very excited.

        I do have a small level of concern regarding the negative operational reviews but I'll see what happens with our units. Our cabinets were custom built for these units so it is not an easy change if these go belly up...but lets think positive.

        Once, my units get to temp and we can start using I will leave an operational review.

                    I had to purchase a new refrigerator when my old one was too expensive to repair. I am a caterer and decided I needed a full refrigerator for my kitchen. The sidekick I bought has been the best decision I have made since starting my business.

                          Much needed fridge space for office kitchen. We had a smaller fridge, always overfilled with a poorly utilized freezer. This 18 cu ft fridge only was the answe to our issues.

                                This purchase was to replace a competitors product that failed at the 5 year mark. Although the same size, we can store more items more efficiently. A great purchase.

                                      The choice was dictated by the existing 10 yr old WOODS (Kenmore) refrigerator unit which started to leak, but there were no parts available. Our Kitchen cabinets were designed to accommodate only the sidekick design. The new units work well but there is no easy way to level and align the units once there are in place. There should be a way to adjust the rear from the front. Also they are a little noisier than the previous unit. The look has been improved by the stainless steel handles. Hopefully they can be serviced without moving them.

                                            I bought this fridge two months ago and I like it a lot. Space is good and so is lighting. Down point, a little noisy when it starts and fruit and veggie compartments are a little small.
