Summer was almost upon us and, dreaming of long lazy days with barbecues and ice cold drinks, decided to replace our old trusty but rusty fridge freezer.
We decided on an American fridge freezer with an ice maker and chilled drinks dispenser. After looking at the various models on display, we wisely decided to measure up and gloomily discovered that none of them would fit through our doors. After almost giving up on the idea, we spotted the Samsung. Oh, joy! It had everything we wanted at half the price and didn't need to be plumbed in. Useful if you need to move it.
The spacious fridge has wide shelves, a 'chilled room' to store fresh meat, a large deep high moisture vegetable/salad drawer with a narrower shelf just above for storing smaller items of fruit and veg. The inside door has a good range of utility pockets for storing dairy foods and good storgae capacity for milk, cartons/ bottles etc.The water container is stored here and is easily removed for refilling.This holds 4.2 litres. Any non carbonated drinks can be used to fill the container and if you prefer,bottles may be used in place of the container. Cold air is evenly distributed by means of the models X-Flow system.
The freezer has two large deep drawers, one smaller deep drawer and the ice maker.Ice is made by filling the two trays with water and once frozen, a turn of the knob drops the cubes into a container. By using Quick Freeze on the temperature panel, a good stock of ice cubes can be made quickly.
The temperature is very easy to control, just press a button. Quick cool, high humidity and quick freeze are all useful features on the temperature control panel.
The drinks dispenser can be locked if necessary, perhaps if your kids are over enthusiastic when demonstrating this feature to their friends!
Cleaning is easy, all the shelves,drawers and pockets slide out with ease.
The manual is easy to follow.
This is a good choice if you are looking for an American style fridge freezer that will actually fit into your home, that's a reasonable price and without the added expense of a plumber.
We've had the Samsung for two years now and are still waiting for Summer!

Excellant op! liked it a lot, I'm going to have to buy a new fridge soon, but as theres only two of us i see no need for a big one just yet, however I'd be interested to know the efficiency rating? Matty x

Very good first op. Welcome to Ciao. Perhaps your disadvantage should be - Lack of a good English summer! :)
