Great fridge. Great price. And it's a perfect fit for my kitchen, which has especially shallow counters and a pretty tight spot for the fridge. It's also very attractive. I like the simple design and clean lines. I frequently BBQ big pieces of meat and I was worried about capacity, but so far everything fits very well, provided I can find the right spot for it. Taller drinks/ my britta pitcher go in the door. I wish there were more options for configuring the shelves, but, so far, no major complaints and I'm very happy with the value.

I usually have two gallons of milk, a jug of OJ, a liter of soda and a homemade jug of iced tea. Only fits two gallons of milk in door.....so NO shelf space for tall containers, even salad dressing or beer bottles in main unit area.

Great for small kitchens
from Morton Grove
About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Samsung RF197 Stainless 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator:
We have a small kitchen with limited depth and width space. I was used to side by sides and wasn't sure I'd like the french door style . But I'm very happy with it--I was surprised by the huge amount of groceries it will hold. Love the bottom freezer--(no more trying to squeeze wide things like frozen pizzas into a side by side freezer.) My only negative is that it doesn't have a water dispenser--so we keep a pitcher of filtered water in the door and whoever uses it is responsible for refilling for the next time.

Great style (French doors) and features (twin cooling) for a small refrigerator.
Service and delivery comments:
Prompt delivery and installation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Perfect for our needs
Agreed with most comments on this fridge. Great overall. The main limitations are the limited adjustable positions on the side shelves and main shelves. This limits how many wide or taller items (like wine bottles or milk jugs) you can place in the fridge. The temperature seemed uniform inside unlike our last fridge and we were able to fit what we needed for a two person home. The size was perfect for our smaller kitchen. I hope the fridge is reliable in the long run.

Samsung RF197 Black 18 Cu. Ft.Refrigerat

Comments about Samsung Black Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
Quiet, Cool Looking, Works Fantastically
Our Refrigerator went out and was time to buy a new one. Checked online prices and models, and found ABT the best around for the money. Found what we were interested in (Thanks to our salesperson-really helped us and no pressure whatsoever), but it was on back order. Took a week (we were told to expect it to come in within 1 1/2 weeks). The Customer Service moved the delivery date up to the next day and FIRST on the list for that day, instead of 4 that it was scheduled for. Best Customer Service EVER. Thank you ABT--now a customer for life! Oh--the refrigerator was delivered by a GREAT CREW-white glove service--and FAST!! And we abosutely LOVE the Samsung Refrigerator.
Nice size, nice fit

good guys.on time and called as requested 20 minutes prior to arrival.explained features and answered all questions.
Great size for small places
from Chicago, IL
Love the depth for this product, in my smaller place with a galley kitchen it provides a lot of extra room. Two important things to note, I have a VERY slight slant in my floor and in order to level the refrigerator, the screws that come down were too short to raise it high enough. I had to use wood blocks to raise it. Also important to note is there is no built in or included water filter for the ice maker. Nice because you don't have the expense of changing it, bad if you like filtered water.Pros:- LED lighting- Quiet- Cools quicklyCons:- Limited shelving options make it difficult to place upright beverages anyplace but doors (Soda, Water pitcher, etc.)Note I didn't comment on energy efficiency yet as I haven't had it long enough to judge.
