An EveryDrop water filter reduces the most contaminants. Plus, StoreRight dual cooling system technology helps keep food fresh and reduce freezer burn.

Haven't had a side by side in years, going to have to get used to the smaller shelves. But so far I like it alot. Fits much better in the space than my old one, and much better looking!

Love this refrigerator but wish the stainless steel was all away around the outside & is not smudge proof which I thought it was. Even though it's only 20 cu. ft. it has lots of room.

Good except for water dispenser.

Nice frig. But the water dispenser only dispenses room temp water. In my opinion it should be cold water. I read the manual to see if there is a way to adjust it and found nothing.

Perfect size. Beautiful finishes. Not using ice maker.

There are many fridges to choose from. I chose this one because it's a Whirlpool which has been extremely dependable to me over the years. This fridge works perfectly for our lifestyle. It keeps all that is in the crisper..."crisp". The temp stays solid on, and the freezer is very nice. The ice maker is fabulous and all the computer amenities on the front door make this a breeze to measure and fill. Just a great fridge in my book!
