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:

      We have had our new Samsung refrigerator for two days, and are very satisfied with its appearance, features and performance so far. We particularly like the way the contents are so visible and easily accessible. We are also impressed that the unit will alert us if a door is left open.

          I've always wanted a stainless steel fridge, and now I have one, for a pretty reasonable price, too. The top is roomy, and likewise for the freezer drawer on the bottom. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

              This Fridge is great so far, It got to its right temp in 4 hours, It's nice and deep and holds a lot of fruits and veggies. We are a family of 4 with 2 small kids and we eat tons of food, that's why this is the perfect match for our family. VERY HAPPY

                So far we really like this product. The only complaint is the particular stainless that is used shows fingerprints really easily, the functionality and overall quality is great.

                Best Uses

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

                  We purchased this model because it is the only French door refrigerator that we could find that would fit our limited space. The fridge is very attractive, lighting is good. The pull-out freezer is spacious and works beautifully. Unfortunately, the produce and meat drawers do not pull out all the way, partly due to design and partly due to a limited space in which we can open the left door. This makes it rather difficult to access those drawers, especially the back of the drawers. All in all, however, we like the fridge and are glad we purchased it.

                      After an unexpected loss of my former refrigerator, a side by side model to fit in a cabinet space, I looked at this Samsung French Door model and I am so excited about it! It's sleek and attractive and it has more usable space and storage than my old side by side. I would gladly recommend this product for its look and performance.

                          good overall product. the machine runs quite most of the time, but will make a loud bang noise (think it might be when the compressor kick in. this is especially unpleasant at night time in bed before falling into sleep. often, it made me jump because of it, and my bed was all the way on the other side of the kitchen.
