We replaced our older model Sidekick freezer and 'fridge recently and the new ones look fantastic. Very high-end. They hold much more than those pricey units like sub-zero and perform very well so far. We did buy the optional ice maker, but wished it was included. Who doesn't want an ice maker as a standard feature? Other than that, we are thrilled with our new Sidekicks.Vivian L.Santa Fe, NM

I bought this with the matching fridge 8 months ago and the trim kit to finish the look of my new kitchen. The unit broke after 7 months and now has broken again 1 month later. I have lost 2 freezer full of food. The first time the tech cam out after I explained what was wrong needed to order a part a take 2 weeks to get it.My problem is how do I get faith back in whirlpool once they fix it. so I can put food in the freezer and not worry I am going to loose it again.

TERRIBLE APPLIANCE- DO NOT PURCHASE THIS
from BIRMINGHAM AL
I BOUGHT THIS APPLIANCE IN 2012 AND INSTALLED IT IN DEC 2012. LOOK AT THE PICTURES...IT CONTINUALLY FREEZES UP. IT QUIT FREEZING IN AUG 2013- NOT A PROBLEM- UNDER WARRANTY. WE HAD IT "FIXED"...IT QUIT FREEZING AGAIN IN EARLY 2014..."OUT OF "WARRANTY"... THE ONLY THING WHIRLPOOL OFFERED WAS THAT WE PURCHASE AN EXTENDED WARRANTY...BUT THE CAVEAT WAS I COULD NOT USE IT FOR THE FIRST 6 MONTHS AFTER PURCHASING IT!!! THE FREEZER STILL DOES NOT FREEZE PROPERLY. I AM REPLACING THE DEFROSTER STARTER AND HEATER TODAY IN HOPES THIS WILL CORRECT THE PROBLEM.
Lots of space

I bought the Whirlpool Sidekicks. They are a separate fridge and freezer. They come together with a trim package. I love them. Lots of room in both. You can actually find things you are looking for. I would recommend them to anyone.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Meets a very important need.

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.

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
easy access/ tight door/ temperature stablizes/nice finish e

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
