I bought a pair of sidekicks in 07 fell in love with them. I started having problems with the refrigerator in may of 2013 had two repair men out one tried to fix the other told me the bill was going to be more then a new one. Well I checked into a new one and he was right it was more to fix then a new one. However the design changed since 07 and that meant that I had to buy a new freezer also! So it cost me way way more then a new one but I wasnt going to have a miss matched pair in my kitchen. I do love the space thats for sure but not sure if we build again if I will go with these two units. Sure hope I have better luck with the new units then I did the old ones

I wish I could give this freezer a good review. The Sidekick concept is great, and looks terrific in my kitchen - holds a lot of food. All my friends envy me. But I've had four expensive repairs in the past 8 years, serving to double the original cost of the freezer, not to mention the cost of lost food and inconvenience. I'm afraid there is a significant problem with quality and manufacturing of this freezer.

Comments about Whirlpool Sidekick Stainless Steel All-Freezer:
The Whirlpool sidekick is the second set I have purchased. When we remodeled our kitchen in 2002 we found the Sidekicks and they were the perfect solution for our refrigerator/freezer needs. We have a big family and the capacity along with the open shelves accommodated large items very well. When positioned side by side they are a very attractive unit. It was the first time that I have ever received compliments on appliances.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased a Whirlpool upright stainless steel freezer recently. I wish I would have done this years earlier. The 4 interior shelves & 2 large baskets helps me keep food items organized. Lots of additional storage in the 6 adjustable bins on door. Very happy with this purchase.

Bought this a month and am very happy so far. The one it replaced was a manual defrost and this is great without the ice build up. Also love the stainless steel!!!

See review for fridge. The freezer was bought to match the new fridge even though the existing freezer was still operational. Suggestions for improvements and other criticisms are the same. I like the sidekicks design.
lots of room but had repaired already
from Winnipeg, MB, Canada
Bought this 15 months ago and had to have timer replaced already since it was not defrosting. Of course it off warranty. Ice maker also freezes up from time to time and need to be manually cracked to release ice
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Needed a companion freezer that would look well in the kitchen - an after thought after new kitchen was installed the sleek lines are easy to work with and can be compatible to other models of stainless other than whirlpool

We got our refridgerator and freezer side by side...best purchase. There is plenty of room for everything and making adjustments is easy.
Improved new features
from Billings, MT, United States
This is the second set of sidekicks I have owned. I replaced them because the refrigerator quit working after 5 1/2 years. The air flow in the freezer is improved. My previous unit ran the air flow right top of the ice bin container which made of large clumps of ice that were a mess. Love the new air flow
