We like the wide capacity and adjustable shelves but we believe that this refrigerator could have had more convenience features considering its price tag.
As technology is advancing, modern refrigerators are gaining more and more performance and convenience features and they are slowly but steadily transforming from modern appliances to futuristic pantries. A big refrigerator is everyone’s dream. If your kitchen space and your budget allow you the luxury of such a refrigerator, then you should definitely consider the Maytag Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Store-N-Door. This fridge can be purchased for $1,449, a price tag well justified if you consider the big capacity of this fridge as well as its convenience features. We guarantee that if you buy this fridge you will never again have to get rid of leftovers from lack of space or spend a lot of time rearranging your food in order to fit more items inside the fridge.
The big capacity is one of the best features of this refrigerator. It features an ice bucket mounted on the door which gives it more usable self-space. The fridge also features a water dispenser equipped with a water filter and an in ice maker. Usually, we’re not big fans of refrigerator water filters, as they are not very efficient and they need to have their cartridges replaced several times per year. Moreover, they increase the price of the refrigerator. If you take a look at the reviews, you will see that you can find some very affordable stand alone water filters on the market. These filters are more durable and most of them only need to have their filter cartridges replaced once or twice per yer. However, we do like the fact that this fridge is equipped with an ice dispenser.
The dispenser can be used without having to open the door thus conserving the cold and using less energy. Furthermore, the ice dispenser delivers small and compact ice cubes that can fit in refillable water bottles.The Spill-Catcher shelves are yet another interesting addition. They are adjustable so they allow you to modify the fridge’s shelf space according to your needs. The water filter features an indicator light which announces the user when it is time to change the filter. The fridge also Features A FreshLock crisper storage with a humidity control system which should keep your fruits and veggies fresh for a long time. The list of interesting features also includes the deli drawer with adjustable temperature, the adaptive defrost system and the control lockout.
The Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Store-N-Door has a 15.2 cubic feet capacity for the refrigerator and a 9.9 cubic feet capacity for the freezer. The freezer is a lot more spacious than similar items due to the Store-N-Door ice dispenser. The refrigerator features 2 crisper drawers and an Adjusti-Temp deli drawer. It has 4 door bins, three of which are gallon compatible. The freezer features 4 wire shelves, a pull-out drawer and four door slots.
Maytag with Store-N-Door is Energy Star Qualified. However, this does not mean that it is the most efficient appliance on the market, from an energy point of view. It is merely one of the best in its class. Make no mistake, the size of this refrigerator will have an impact on your energy bills. It has an estimated energy cost of $89.80.
It has a modern and space efficient design. Aside from the popular stainless steel finish, this model can also come in a glossy black or a white finish.
