Summary: We wound up ordering this fridge because our first choice was too tall to be brought through our stairwell AND it was the only self-defroster among the three in our size range. What can I say? It keeps things cold, it keeps things frozen -- even if they tumble off the poorly laid out minimalist freezer shelving... The handles don't quite line up but we're told that will change as the gaskets shrink over time with use. We'll see.
