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

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.

      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 Sales person was right on in his recommendation for the size requirements yet we did not sacrifice in appearance, functionality and inside space.

        Just what we needed.

        Abt. made the purchase experience a breeze.

        Thanks Don and Donna

          Quiet, Cool Looking, Works Fantastically

          Service and delivery comments:

          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.
