This refrigerator is ideal for single/two person household. I had the exact model purchased in July of 1998 at a cost $160.00 higher from a local appliance dealer in Elmhurst than the one purchased from ABT. Kinda wish I purchased the original frig from ABT then. I junked the old one without calling for service. I applied the service call ($125.00-175.00) towards the new unit, afterall, its eleven years old and what else is going to go. The improvements are slight but noticeable. Two separate bins vice one on my original unit plus there is a clear window on shelve above to see the contents of the bins without opening them. The handle is easier to grab being that it is round at the top. It now has a separate butter-keeper that I did not have before. There is a "full" shelf in the freezer from one side to the other vice a half shelf that kept falling if overloaded. The only complaint that I have with the new unit verses the old is that it appears that the freezer is smaller. The vents drawing the cold air down to the refrigerator section are pointed towards the door. The old unit was minus the vents on the floor. Apparently,they were on the top and less efficient.Lastly, I swear by Whirlpool as I have three other major appliances bearing their name and I couldn't be happier. Very reliable.

I am frustrated with the lower door gasket (freezer is on top). The top end corner area of door doesn't close all the way, letting out the cold air. So, for the past weeks I've tried everything such as: applying a little vasoline to help with the seal, putting scotch tape over area where air is coming out, taping the door shut tight, even putting little strips of leather inside the door gasket lip to prop it outward so as to grip onto the refrigerator better. At first I followed the trouble shooting suggestions in the product direction booklet. All have worked (separately or in combo) temporarily to some degree, but at the end of the day (or in a couple hours) the gasket loosens again and cold air escapes. It's now my daily routine to tape the door 3-4 times a day. Whirlpool was recommended to me by a relative who sells refrigerators at a major dept store, and I'm disappointed. Also at some point when I first got the fridge, it froze my food in the lower compartment. But now that doesn't happen, so it may have remedied itself. (or maybe the gasket leak keeps it from freezing). The upper freezer door gasket works great, and I'm very happy about that. For quality, overall all it is fair to average. I almost put in a poor rating due to the ongoing frustrating gasket issue on lower door, but the rest of the fridge (so far) seems okay.

Don't buy unless you have another freezer
from Wooster, OH, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Bisque Top Freezer Refrigerator:
There aren't separate controls for the refrigerator and freezer. Freezer won't keep ice cream cold enough unless you turn control way up but if you do, stuff in fridge freezes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Works for us!

The refrigerator was purchased for use in the garage as a second or back up refrigerator.
Perfect size for my application!

I needed a second refrigerator to catch the overflow from the primary and also to hold sale items. This little box filled the bill perfectly. Glad I bought this one!

I have had this fridge for about 3 months as a second unit in my garage. It is roomy and holds all the extras I don't want to keep inside. Everything is the proper temperature and I have had no problems.

I was thinking of a small refrigerator for my garage to use for beverages. But comparing that to what I bought just made tons of sense. We now have a refrigerator/freezer in the garage and don't know how we got along without it. When we have guests, we have the space for meat, vegetables, drinks and frozen deserts. I highly recommend this product.
Great refrigerator for the price.
from Canyon Country, Santa Clarita, CA, United States
I bought this refrigerator for my new apartment (unit did not come with a frig). It's plenty big, looks nice and matches my other appliances. One of the best features is it is on wheels. I can pull it out from the wall and clean behind it. Great value, a good choice for me.
from De Pere, WI, United States
I purchased the refrigerator1-2 months ago at a decent price and is working great. I like were the condenser is located for easy cleaning, the compressor is quiet, keeps accurate temperatures, and is large inside for lots of storage. Great design Whirlpool! Thanks Paul.
Glad to be back
from Phoenix, AZ, United States
I had always bought Whirlpool appliances in the past because they where well made and reliable. When I read that they had merged with Maytag I quit buying Whirlpool products because I'd had such bad experiences with Maytag. Several repairmen have assured me that Whirlpool took over the making of Maytag products and not the other way around. I am so glad to be back "in the family" and buying Whirlpool again. For my vacation house I just wanted a plain refrigerator, nothing fancy and they offered one!

So far it seems efficient and quiet. I like the vacuum seal feature when closing the freezer. Only problem is the refrigerator door slams when allowed to close on its own.
