Not falling for the counter depth craze
By Ivona Newfridge
About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Samsung Stainless French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
Live in a condo with a rather small kitchen but decided to sacrifice a few inches for a larger fridge because our friends and family visit often and because I was tired of side-by-side narrow shelves which make you get amnesia about specimens in the far back and where fitting a cake or a pizza box must always be accompanied by a prayer. I cook some, we store lots of leftovers, and we do throw big dinner parties sometimes. So, I developed a consumer craving for French door, 36" wide, 25-28 cu. ft. capacity, customizable temperature drawer, water/ice maker in door, LED lighting, energy efficiency, 14" or deeper shelves, gallon storage in door, egg compartment, and due to specific design of kitchen, to be able to pull out all the drawers, shelves and ice maker parts out for cleaning while the left door is only 90-100 degrees open. Researched all currently available fridges and decided this 28 cu ft. Samsung is the closest to my ideal. One irritating thing is that you cannot pull out the ice maker ice tray outside while the left door is 90-100 degrees open because of a corner edge overlapping not more than 1/2"! That is a silly design mistake -- other brands managed to figure it out -- and it's easy to redesign! Counter depth version, besides smaller capacity, would have made this problem for me even worse, and I judged against counter depth also because the shelves are 14" exactly and that's kind of tight for pizza boxes (although other brands have even narrower shelves so for those who want counter depth I would again recommend Samsung). Also, I'm not still sure where it's best to put eggs. But so far we're super happy with the fridge. My main concern prior to the purchase were some customer reviews that the ice maker is bad / dripping water. Because of small percentage of such comments, and a good sale price (I've got a floor model and an even better price from Abt, yay!) I decided to ignore these comments and the ice tray design issue and buy it. The delivery people explained that ice maker may drip until all air is out of the water pipes, and lo and behold, it dripped for a few hours, stopped, and is making beautiful ice and fine cold water. The fridge is really quiet too and looks nice. I feel happy about it because of all its bells and whistles and just how bright it is inside. It's still a rather new purchase, crossing fingers for next 10 years or so :)
Service and delivery comments:
Great delivery. The Abt people had to assemble the doors and drawers on the spot because of a narrow entrance; they also hauled away the old fridge. They installed new water pipe and explained all about the ice maker as well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So happy with our purchase!
By Debbie S.
from Westmont, IL
We had a top freezer that was getting old. I was hesitant about bottom freezer with storage drawer in the middle. I am in love with it!!! I haven't found any negatives!
I had a small space to fit a fridge and was limited. I found a 33 Width. When the delivery guy saw the space, he said he could get a 35 width in there with no problem. He showed me the model and gave me office number to call. Phone sales people were excellent also. I had never used ABT prior to this purchase. I will now go to ABT for all my needs!

Absolutely love this refrigerator! Not only is it beautiful (instantly gave our kitchen an updated look), but it is versatile. The extra drawer is awesome and can be modified for any refrigeration needs. The shelves are strong and of good quality, the doors close effortlessly, and the freezer is huge, yet you can still find what you are looking for in it easily. The only issue we have, and it simply may need to be tweaked (have to call), is that the ice dispenser shoots crushed ice out to the sides of the glass you are filling, whether you have chosen cubed or crushed. Not a huge ordeal and we love this product regardless.

Love the layout. I can find what I'm looking for without digging. The door and drawers are open for much less time than my old side by side of the same capacity.
Very useful Refrigerator

Love the fridge space, adjustable shelving, lighting and temp control it also lots of great freezer room! We got this delivered 3 weeks ago and the thrill has still not warn off. It really is great. I can't think of one bad thing to say about it!
New purchase, so far so good.
from Leesburg, Fl.
Just got this Frig for my wife for Christmas. It is attractive, with great lighting, very spacious, and convient. So far it is working well. I have read many other reviews about this model, but find it not to be noisey as stated, so far the ice maker is working fine, and is not very noticable when the ice drops into the container. There are a few items that I need to report. First the ice is not very hard and doesn't last as long as my old Kenmore frig. ice did. Secondly, the temp read out on the control panel are not precice. I have found that to set the frig. temp to the recommended 37 degrees, I have to set it to 32 degrees to maintain 37. The freeze temp is recomended to be set at zero and I have to set it at -6 to -8 to get that. I like popsicles and they are not as hard as my old Kenmore made them. My wife and I love the layout of the frig. and with the middle drawer convience, it is great. I would recommend the product to a friend at this point. Remember we have only had it for about a week.
big but no room

It was very disappointing as it has a ding at the top front of the left side door and a scratch as well..........
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great fridge so far!

Great when you don't want the item to stick out way past the edge of your countertop.

Wonderful for everyday use for just two people, but especially great when planning a party.
