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.

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!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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

modern and sleek look
from Hollywood, FL, United States
I bought this three months ago to go into my new $50000 kitchen. It looks great next to my high gloss cabinets and next to the Sidekick wirlpool fridge. the counter depth is a great feature. The unit does not stick out past my kitchen cabinets.The two pieces look like one large expensive commercial unit. It gets a lot colder then a fridge/freeze. If I need to cool beer I have really cold beer in less then 20 min. also I added the ice maker, really easy to install. The unit is very spacious with its 18 cu.ft. Storing a month worth of food and there is still plenty of space left for other things. Great unit!
