        Perfect fit for small space. Really like the freezer on the bottom, very convenient. Plenty of refrigerator space, but wish there was more space for tall items. Pleased with purchase

        Mostly good, but far from our dream fridge

              Comments about Whirlpool 19.7 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Monochromatic Stainless Steel:

              First, I wish that I could give this fridge a 3.5, but I chose to round up because its mostly good. Do keep in mind that this review is being written by a space efficiency junkie, so my feedback has a lot to do with access and organization. I've been told that others are not so picky about this kind of thing.

              We have never had a french door refrigerator before and are not sure we'd do it again. We love the freezer at the bottom, but it seems the double doors waste valuable storage space. This is more important to us because we had to buy a 30" unit, which is already pretty small.

              But when the door is cut in half, we loose the storage that would have been in the middle of each shelf. Somehow it seems the shorter shelves have a lot more small wastes spaces than longer shelves do. The good news is that things are easier to reach and find with everything up so high. Some complained about the cheap plastic. I don't think it seems super strong, but it works just fine.

              We like that the either door can be opened or closed without opening the other. We have also had our butts saved a couple times because of the alarm. Cool feature (pun intended).

              If you store a lot of tall items in your fridge, AND a lot of condiments, this may not be the unit for you. Having everything up high means there is less room for shelves. We have found its not an efficient use of space to store our tall items (milk, juice, etc.) on the door because you can only fit one carton per shelf. Therefore, we had to make room on the top shelf, which meant that the other two shelves are pretty short. it works for our world, but everyone keeps different things in their refrigerator.

              The fold up shelf can be useful for storing taller items if needed.

              All that said, it is nice to not have a huge door to open and we would not trade the freezer at the bottom for anything.

              Let me talk about the freezer because a lot of people complained about it in other reviews. I have no idea what they were talking about unless they were trying to store 2'x2' boxes. We had a side-by-side freezer that was pretty close to packed when this fridge arrived. Every item fit into this space and it was way easier to organize. Pulling it out and being able to find things easily is one of the best parts of this appliance.

              In full disclosure, we did have a problem with leaking shortly after we got the fridge. For some reason ice had consolidated and it was melting and leaking. We called for warranty repair and it was fixed and no further problems (its been four months).

              One other thing worth noting - the ice maker doesn't make much ice. We tried adjusting the bar for it to make more and that helps a bit, but if we have company we have to remember to store some ice in advance or purchase some.

              That's all I can think of to share about the Whirlpool. So far so good, and our biggest complaint is that we need more room, but we don't have the space for a bigger fridge, so we can't blame the unit.

              I really love this refrigerator

                    This refrigerator fits our kitchen perfectly. We are among the many people out there who don't have an enormous kitchen area to put a refrigerator. It runs very quietly except for the occasional sound of falling ice into the bin. There is plenty of room in both the refrigerator and the freezer. We got the black one and it looks great, I was concerned that the shinny finish would be a problem with smudges and the like, but so far it is much easier to keep clean than the stainless steel we had before. An added bonus is that my reflection on the door makes me look a lot thinner! (ha ha) The air filter for the main compartment of the refrigerator that comes with it is fantastic. I had boiled eggs in potato salad in there for a few days and you could not smell a thing! I must say I was impressed.

                          we had height constraints so didn't have a lot of choices in a black French door. Could have handled one w more width. Would have preferred a non shiny door that didn't show prints as easily like the sides. Split shelving would be helpful - had to remove one of the shelves to make it work for us. Not perfect, but we'll make it work.

                                and that is truly a great idea.
                                The frig compartment is used all day and the freezer only on occasion.
                                I would recommend this frig to my friends.

                                            How delightful to find a refrigerator that fit my space in our 40 year old home! I thought it would be difficult to find something that fit and matched my other appliances! It's my favorite refrigerator of all our 56 years of marriage. The French doors are so convenient and the variety of shelves and drawers is exceptional. I'm also delighted with the bottom refrigerator. Thanks Whirlpool for this refrigerator!

                                                  The space I had for a refrigerator was limited. This one fit perfectly! I only wish that there were more options for where to put milk and other tall items.

                                                        We have a small home and this frig fit right into place. It offers the shelves and bins inside that the larger refrigerators have. This frig has been a joy to use!
