Because this appliance is Energy Star rated, it will have you money on utilities.
The Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator with External Refrigerated Drawer will ensure that frequently used items are close at hand and have appropriate cooling. The external drawer makes storing any items simple, including veggie trays and birthday cakes. Moreover, it is energy efficient, helping you save resources and money. Its $1,794.60 price tag is another reason of joy since similar models cost way over $2,000.
The Whirlpool French Door Refrigerator has all the features you would ask for in a large fridge. Its French doors open to an eye-level, revealing plenty of space for large items. The Accu-Chill temperature management system uses built-in sensors to sense and adapt to measure the internal temperature and if necessary activate the compressor. This efficient cooling performance will chill your food quickly and save energy. The adaptive Defrost will run the defrost cycle only when necessary for improved food preservation and energy save. The defrost sensors monitor how the compressor operates and when the doors are opened to determine when a defrost cycle is needed.
The external drawer features adjustable temperature controls that you can use to match the cooling setting to the ingredients stored. Its adjustable dividers will help you organize items and find exactly what you need in no time. The exterior water dispenser has tap touch controls and offers cold filter water and ice without having to open the door. Electronic controls make this feature easy to access and provide a sleek look. A Measure Fill feature allows you to select the amount of filter water you need in ounces, liters or cups. Moreover, the dispenser will fill the container and shut itself off when complete.
Design and Capacity
It has a total capacity of 25.0CuFt, 6.61CuFt freezer and 18.35CuFt refrigerator. This is plenty of room in both the top fridge and bottom freezer for a large family. The full extension drawer allows you to efficiently store frequently used food such as cold cuts, snacks, produce, and beverages. The adjustable gallon door bins can accommodate odd-shaped items and easily move where you need them. LED Interior Lighting makes it easy for you to see items and casts a more natural light so the food looks like it should. The capacity of the ice maker is not that impressive, but if you look for style and function it is a very small concern. The French doors allow easy access even to bulky items and the door shelving can be moved to fit smaller jars. The main cabin is easy to wipe down, although the stainless steel exterior shows every print and needs to be polished from time to time.
The Whirlpool refrigerator has great reviews and gets little negative feedback. Users believe that it works great and has good value for the sale price tag. The ice maker works fine and the digital measurements are a useful feature. However, many users complain about the noise level of the fan and the fact that the ice maker is pretty slow. Because the Whirlpool refrigerator with an external refrigerator drawer is Energy Star rated it will help you save money in the long run. All you have to do is plug it in and it does the rest, turning the motor on and off when the sensors indicate so.
