Pleased with this brand! Simple is bliss!
Performs as advertised and does a great job of controlling and maintaining its temperatures within reasonable tolerances in both the freezer and the fridge compartmants. Impressively keeps the milk, water, beer, etc. nice and cold and also perfectly frozen yet "scoopable" ice cream from the freezer. Much better than their new competition whose name starts with an "S"! In addition we are so happy that it fits perfectly in the limited space we have in our kitchen which has limited space for the fridge. The ice maker also performs well.

Saves on electricity costs, but with a price.....
Bought this fridge in June 2018.......it is not even a year old. The so-called black stainless steel appears to be a black coating over stainless steel. It scratches very easily and we do not have young children in the house! When it is running, a musty smell comes out the front vent and makes my kitchen smell terrible. Tried to check the evaporation tray from the bottom front, but it is not even accessible for cleaning like my old fridge was! I do not see how the crispers can control the humidity because the drawers do not seal at the top where they meet the bottom shelf - very poor design!! The storage shelves in the freezer section are open on the bottom and items frequently fall out when the door is opened - another design flaw. We got this on sale, but it was still expensive. We expected a better product from Whirlpool and will never buy another one!! The Energy Saver feature does save on electrical costs and it does keep things cold, as every good fridge should; however, the design flaws and the poor appearance of the doors after less than one year of careful use, is unacceptable to us. Please do not call it black stainless steel if it is a black coating with stainless steel underneath. The black coating scratches and the finish marks much too easily!
