Summary: This is our main home refrigerator for me and my civil union partner. We keep it full, and have used it to the greatest extent possible since October 2007. The first interesting thing one might notice about this Fisher & Paykel bottom freezer refrigerator in person is that it is extremely thin-walled. The space inside is very well organized and European/Asian in appearance. There's next to no wasted space, at least in this non-icemaker version.
Summary: Our earlier Fisher & Paykel Refrigerator/freezer of the same size did not have handles on the door. This made changing the door from left opening to right opening as the kitchen dictated a simple matter. To change the door from left hand opening to right hand opening is a major and costly undertaking for this model. The door handle also can collide with the wall when placed in a corner of the kitchen.
Pros: Excellent layout., Very attractive interior., Well built good quality engineering.
Cons: Changing the way doors open difficult and expensive., Leveling the fridge difficult.
Summary: Ergonomically well designed for the average height person, say around 5'8". Quite silent running & easy to use door handles. Paint finish good with no apparent marks, dents, scratches etc. Compartment temp. controls easy to use & clearly visable. On 4 rollers, so very easy to move. Final levelling adjustment simple to get at too.
Pros: Easy clean non-spill glass shelves. Roll out bins(not baskets) for fridge & freezer. Shelf between freezer bins very handy for packets of flat frozen pastry. Ample space in door for milk & drink bottles etc.
