Default I have to buy a new refrigerator

Ours is going out - just barely keeping things cold, everything in the freezer is sort of semi-soft. I'm actually thrilled to be buying a new one, I've disliked this one ever since we got it. We bought it used right before we got married, so it's about 12-13 years old. It's got the freezer on top, and I'm 5'8'', so I have to bend down to look in the fridge part, which drives me crazy! It's also got wire shelves which drive me crazy.

What do you like or not like about the your refridgerator? Any purchasing tips?

Well, I have a Kenmore that has the freezer on the bottom. It looked really handy (to have the main refrig part on top) but I HATE IT. The refrig space is SO MUCH smaller and we never have enough room for tall things. I would NEVER recommend it. Get a good side by side - they have so much more room!

Only suggestion is to get the biggest one that will fit that you can afford. We have the medium-sized Whirlpool & I'm always rearanging stuff to try to make more room. Also the smaller side-by-sides have tiny freezers.

Definitely get the biggest you have space for. I recommend the side by sides. Very handy and lots of freezer space. I also recommend an ice/water dispenser - I can live w/o mine!

I disagree on the complaints about the bottom freezer. We have one with a bottom drawer-style freezer, which is really nice. It's pretty big in the freezer and wide enough that you can freeze things on cookie sheets and so on. The fridge is big too. My only complaint is that most of the fridge shelves are too high for Kaylie to reach (but she can get at the ice cream just fine!).

Amana has a bottom-drawer-freezer model that is really nice.
