What Kind Of Refrigerator Do You Prefer?

Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
I had to pick out the type I wanted, but ended up going with a group of appliances because of the savings, I needed all of them & wanted them to match the kitchen. Turns out, I LOVE my side by side & I almost never have to bend over, (which is something I have issues with at times). I know what is more energy efficient, but I really like what I have, probably because it is such a step up from what I used to have! I also have a stand alone freezer in the basement & an extra, as yet unused, fridge with top freezer that I had to buy when I was in my rental house. I could sell it, but with all the produce I grow, having the extra space to preserve the harvest, especially before canning, & during the Fall, would be helpful!

So, what do you prefer & if you like, tell us what you have & how you like it.

A Sub-Zero side by side freezer/refrigerator - easier to retrieve items.

I like both side by side and french door refrigerators. My hubby and I have been fridge shopping recently, and we're probably going side by side.

I would love a full size fridge and a full size freezer, but I just don't have the room. I would love it if I could have commercial grade appliances in my kitchen, like a walk in fridge and freezer. that would be sweet.

Wouldn't that be nice? I can't justify, nor pay the expense with just myself. Oh well, another dream dashed! *sigh*

@Rossie, My favorite thing about side by side is the easy retrieval! I hate having to move stuff around & balance it in stacks when it's in a big drawer, etc. I am also stunned at the amount of stuff I can fit in it! I always though they were limited because of the width, but I haven't had any problems with that.

I have one right now with just the freezer on the top and fridge on the bottom, but I really want one with the two doors on top and freezer drawer on the bottom.

Of course, I had to be the other.

Ummm... I don't really use my refrigerator. At the moment, the only things in there are a canister of coffee, a can of coconut milk, homemade lip chap to set and in my freezer I have a kilo of Mexican coffee. All of these usually live in my cupboard but just decided this morning to put them in there as I couldn't justify just having lip chap in there.

I have easy access to markets and little stores, so like most Chinese people, I buy things for the day and go out again the next day. During the winter time, I buy more as my kitchen table becomes my refrigerator.

Love the side-by-sides. And ideally, in black.

I recently put a counter depth, french door fridge, bottom drawer freezer, in the kitchen. We like it but if we didn't also have the old larger fridge/freezer in the garage, the counter depth one just would not be big enough.

I like the side by side. It is so much easier to find things. I had one with a freezer on the bottom once and hated it. I always had to sit on the floor to get to stuff in the back.

Grr the freezers at the bottom are annoying. But right now I'm operating out of a mini-fridge, it's awful!

That's what I have found, too! I am also constantly surprised at how much it holds, too!

Oh, yeah, also love having the filtered water & ice through the door and the indicator light telling me when to change the filter!

This sounds lovely! I imagine you hardly ever waste food by letting it go bad. Not sure about the kitchen table as a fridge though; is it really that chilly indoors?
