How long have you had it?


I can never find anything in any freezer I've ever had.

I love my French door fridge. At ECing Mamís suggestion, I got Ikea Trofast bins for drawers. We have a frozen fruit drawer, a frozen veg drawer, and an other drawer (usually meals I have prepared and frozen).

We have had our new fridge for about 18 months. The previous Kenmore we had lasted us for 23 years.
I bought some cheap bins to hold items on the freezer shelf since it was a wire basket and my daughter says, I way overload it. LOL She fusses at me each time she has to go into it, but our big chest freezer is in the basement........and I hate going down there. LOL

The French doors are really nice for getting larger things in to quickly cool on the shelves. (I used to do cakes, and I would have loved to have one of these for sheet cakes.)

The man that sold me our fridge at Lowes said, 'don't expect this one to last as long as your last one.' No one in our area works on Samsung or LG, so that is why I was looking at Whirlpool.

We ordered a Whirlpool. Dh found out he has a friend that works for Whirlpool and he got a "friends and family" discount code. He picked one out and we got it for less than Home Depot is selling it right now. At least we should be able to get parts and repair service, if needed.

Your DH isn't as patient as you are and is more persistent or the bread box was a dud?

We cannot find a brand of fridge that has consistently good reviews. I'm hoping that in 3-4 years it's easier to choose. Our fridge is only 8 1/2 years old and it still works great. We really want a French door model, though. Which is not a reason to replace a working fridge, in my opinion.
This is where my question came from. I was surprised to see you've bought a fridge after that post! I'm super curious about the bread box though. I think I could just use our Dutch oven because I don't buy much bread. I keep meaning to try it. Mine is a gorgeous blue color.

My shrug was for him, not you.

We agreed to wait when we saw the bad reviews on Samsung and LG. When he got that discount on a Whirlpool, we decided to go ahead.

He hates our fridge It really doesn't work well, logistically, for our family but it could if more of us made an effort. It's just really hard to find things, being a side-by-side.

We just decided we should get a new fridge. We go through a small family owned appliance store, it's a little more costly up front but they provide service if something goes wrong.

Our fridge still works. I don't love it, and I wouldn't bother replacing it except for the fact that electricity is going way up and this thing was made in 1979. I estimate I could save probably 75% of the current cost of running a fridge. I'm just not excited about getting rid of something that works, and replacing it with something probably won't last as long.
