We liked the advanced technologies used in designing the Summit Ingenious FF1525PL refrigerator, the affordable price and the generous warranty, which compensate for the lack of space and energy efficiency.
The Summit Ingenious FF1525PL refrigerator was designed as a modern appliance that easily combines looks with accessibility and performance. The smartly-designed interior offers freedom in accommodating the foods and the advanced technologies provide the optimal freezing conditions to keep the foods in a perfect state. However, the manufacturer overlooked some important aspects, which allowed them to display a $715 price tag.
This refrigerator is a top freezer model available in a sleek platinum finish for the ultimate enhancement of your kitchen’s design. Nevertheless, you will fall in love with the finishing touches of this elegant refrigerator that measures 73” in height, 26” in depth, 26” in width and 50” with the door opened at 90 degrees. The handle is smartly integrated into the design of the door that unfortunately can’t be reversed to open on both sides. For added elegance, the door includes a wide black digital control panel that allows you to adjust the indie temperature from the outside. While the exterior might be demanding when it comes to cleaning, the interior is very easy to clean thanks to the convenient glass shelves.
This refrigerator offers you over 14 cu. ft. of storage without exceeding the dimensions of a counter depth unit. The interior is very well organized so you can have room for each one of your foods and easy access to the ones you eat more often. All the stylish glass shelves are adjustable and removable so you can accommodate the casseroles and pots inside the freezer. There are full and half shelves in both the fridge and the freezer for easy storage and accessibility and a large door shelf in the refrigerator so you can store gallon-sized items. Both doors are designed with Smart Station compartments that let you store selected items in such way that you don’t even have to open the door to reach them. Summit Ingenious FF1525PL comes with many crisper drawers for fruits and vegetables, a glass deli crisper for deli storage, and a slider mini-crisper that can hold small items and can be moved from side to side.
The interior of this stylish fridge includes glass shelves that keep the spills from spreading and the frost-free operation prevents ice from building up and eliminates the need for manual defrosting. There are interior lights so you can see what is where and crisper drawers for keeping produce and meat in perfect storage conditions.
You can adjust the inside temperature with the control panel located on the door while the Power Cool feature immediately adjusts the temperature after you load new room-temperature groceries. For saving energy, Summit Ingenious includes a door alarm and a holiday function, as well as a cooled compartment on the door where yo can have easy access to some foods without even opening the door.
The freezer section comes with an innovative Express Chill Zone where you can quickly cool certain foods using a timer that you can control through the control panel. You can select time periods from 10 to 60 minutes and a signal will let you know when the time is up. The convenient Smart Fill ice factory delivers ice cubes without creating a mess thanks to the no-spill system that releases the ice cubes into a removable box.
One of the major flaws of this refrigerator is the fact that it’s not Energy Star rated, meaning it does not comply with the latest regulations in terms of energy use. The tests performed on it have shown an energy consumption of 427 kWh per year and a total estimated cost of $45, which is higher than in most models from its range. This aspect might be reason enough to change people’s mind when it comes to choosing a refrigerator.

The frost-free operation of the Summit Ingenious FF1525PL eliminates most of the maintenance by eliminating manual defrosting and ensures a smoother operating. This appliance is warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and the manufacturer stays behind its operating for the first year for what includes all parts and labor, offering another 5 years for the compressor, which is the most important and expensive component of a refrigerator. This detail is a sign of reliability and increases the customer’s trust.
