"Samsung RSH1DBMH Fridge Freezer"

I have always wanted one of these american style fridge freezers but never had the room until we moved into our new house. Actually it does not take up as much room as I thought it would and it is a great centre piece to the kitchen.

This fridge freezer is on wheels so although you'd think it was difficult to move it really isn't, I can move it easily!

The ice and water facilities are fantastic. You have to have it plumbed into the mains pipe which my husband, who is certainly not a plumber, managed with ease! We did have to buy a little tap to fit it to the pipe but that was only a few pounds compared to what you would have to pay a plumber! You simply put the tap to the pipe and screw, it pierces the pipe then you can attach the hose supplied with the fridge freezer! This means you never have to fill up the water or make ice cubes, and you always have cold filtered water available.

You can either have the ice cubed or crushed and you can turn the ice facility off if you want to, whilst it is turned on it continuously makes ice which is stored inside the freezer in a kind of bucket ready to be dispensed so if you dont use a lot of ice it will get rather full.

The buttons on the front of the machine might look quite technical but are in fact really simple, there is a button for power freeze which is quite self explanatory, a freezer button which you press to adjust the temperature in the freezer, a fridge button which adjusts the temperature in the fridge, a vacation button which you turn on when you go on holiday and lastly an ice type button which changes the type of ice that is dispensed or turns the ice function off - this button is also used when you change the filter, you press and hold it for 3 seconds to reset the filter schedule. It also has a child lock facility, if you press the fridge button and vacation button simultaneously for 3 seconds all buttons will be locked and the ice and water dispensers will not work either, great if you have kids! To cancel the lock you simply press these two buttons for 3 seconds again.

The fridge is full length with 5 shelves and 2 big drawers at the bottom, there are 3 shelves on the door and a dairy compartment at the top. I still cant believe how much stuff you can fit in this fridge and the drawers at the bottom keep fruit and veg so fresh.
The freezer has 3 shelves and 2 drawers at the bottom, there are 3 shelves on the door aswell. I have found that you cant really fit too much stuff in the freezer - the ice and water dispenser takes quite a lot of it's space. We have had to use another small freezer we had to keep any extra items in as there was simply not enough room. This is the only downfall of this item but i believe that the ice and water dispenser is worth sacrificing a bit of space in the freezer.

Overall I think this is a fantastic fridge freezer and although the freezer would be better if it was a bit bigger it certainly isn't a major problem and I certainly dont regret buying it, in fact it has to be the best thing I have bought! Its great for the kids as they actually enjoy drinking water for once!

So if you like lots of fresh food, water and ice on tap then this is definitely for you.

    Like Deborah, my kitchen is too small as well, but it doesn't stop me looking at them everytime I see these in John Lewis. :-)
