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 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.

      Comments about Samsung RF197 Stainless 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator:

      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.

            The inside shelves are not spaced enough to put drink pitchers in..or milk cartons. they all have to go into the doors and the small shelves on doors do not hold anything that is not small. all bottles of mustard ect .have to go into fridge. In one week I have broken plastic by the pull on freezer and service call scheduled. Hope this will not be an issue in the future.

                Our old fridge went bad and my wife wanted a side by side.Since we couldn't find a side by side that would fit my wife started looking at other types and saw this one.I Didn't think I would like the french door style but now love it.It's nice to have the fridge part at a level where you don't have to get on your knees to find something on the lower shelves.The freezer takes some getting use to but overall we are both glad we decided on this one.

                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.
