Samsung RF197 Black 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator, Model RF197BK

Features:

  • Twin Cooling keeps food fresher
    Samsung's Twin Cooling System® controls and generates cooling air for the refrigerator and freezer separately. Airflow between the two stays separate so the freezer air stays drier, while the refrigerator's moisture level stays at 42%-almost 5x higher than single cooling systems resulting in fruits and veggies that stay fresher, longer
  • More ice with an automatic ice maker
    Automatically makes as much ice in less space than conventional models
  • Easy access to internal temperature controls
    The internal digital display gives you easy access to temperature controls and other information
  • Drop temperatures with Power Freeze and Power Cool
    The Power Freeze and Power Cool feature drops the temperature in each compartment by 10 degrees within minutes. Great for chilling down cases of soda or hardening up ice cream in a flash
  • Surround Air Flow
    Surround Air Flow ensures air circulates for even cooling throughout the refrigerator
  • ENERGY STAR® Compliant
    You'll save money while conserving energy with our ENERGY STAR®-rated refrigerators. Plus, a handy alarm alerts you when the door is left ajar or open too long

I was looking for a refrigerator for a narrow kitchen remodel. The depth was a big advantage as was the narrower width. The big advantage of the combination of depth and french doors is that someone can pass behind someone standing at the refrigerator if you have a galley type kitchen. The fridge is very quiet. The icemaker is the only thing that makes noise when the cubes drop. The temp controls at the top are an amusing plus. The doors work seamlessly, closing smoothly no matter which side. The LED lighting works well in both the fridge and freezer. Door storage is somewhat hampered because of the short sections that are inherent in the french door style. I would also have liked the refrigerator shelves to allow more options for positions for taller items; but the whole system works very well. The freezer holds a lot and the combination of tray and well storage works very nicely.

Paid an arm an a leg for this refrigerator.. I loved it at first. Great on storage etc. BUT it scratches and dents very easily. Can't put anything on it. a simple magnet permenantly scratched the surface. A nerf bullet dented the freezer door. So it is not worth the money to have a fridge that is 1 yr old and looks like it is 5.

      Comments about Samsung RF197 Black 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

      I needed to replace my old medium sized standard refrigerator and my daughter recommended that I look at a French door model. So I spent weeks reading reviews and product information until I narrowed it down to 3 or 4 units. I then took several field trips see them at the retail stores. After looking at them my decision was a Samsung French door. I chose the one that does not have the water and ice through the door because I needed the interior as large as possible. I am very impressed with the unit. I have only had it for 2 weeks but I really like the size and features. I especially like the design of the bottom freezer compartment. The drawer slides out extremely easy versus some of the other brands I looked at. The light levels in the unit are very bright which are welcome for these aging eyes. The unit is very quiet and does a good job a maintaining the set temperature. I also like the door alarm as I have two grandchildren living with me at present and they sometimes forget to shut the door all the way. So far I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this refrigerator to anyone.

        One annoyance is the noise from the ice maker that we chose not to hook up. Any way to stop that Star Wars sound that comes on every couple of hours?

            Comments about Samsung RF197 Black 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

            Samsung has placed the temp "bump" that is normally inside the refrigerator "up" and on the outside. This allows for more inside space.

                Comments about Samsung RF197 Black 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

                Very sleek looking, more room than I thought inside and so convenient to reach in and grab something, I just love it! For a 21.8 cubic foot refrigerator every inch of space is well utilized, nothing wasted and very well thought out. We were somewhat limited by height and wanted to maximize cubic feet and this was the most perfect one. Was leery first in purchasing since Samsung does make a lot of products but based on other reviews we decided to go for it and so glad we did! What I really like the most is how even the temperature stays throughout fridge, always nice & cold. Don't have to worry about what I put where. I would definitely recommend this product since it has so many pluses. The only other comment I have is when the condenser turns on the noise is a bit louder than normal. It could be because it's not 100% level yet which we do have to level.

                  I purchased this refrigerator to replace an aged side by side. The overall size of this model is smaller than the one it replaced but had much more usable space both in the refrigerator and the freezer. I would highly recommend this model to anyone looking for a new refrigerator.

                              We previously owned the Cream colored appliances, came with the house when we purchased it. This Samsung refrigerator is quieter, easier to get things in and out of and stainless steel just looks better. We can get more groceries in it same size, better layout. Build quality is far above our whirlpool,a little loud its still running fit for the garage. ;-} With an open floor plan low noise level is key.

                              My wife and I looked a long time for a new French door refrigerator that would fit in a smaller space. We didn't want a lot of features, just an ice maker. We bought it for its looks but are sure pleased with how convenient it is. The bottom freezer with the sliding tray is a great feature. It also makes plenty of big ice cubes. We love it !
