Poor - Brand new never been used, Freezer doesnt work
Our Integrated French Door RF90A1 fridge installed within the past fortnight. We choose F&P's top of the range option as it presented much better value than the Miele option.
We have, however, had some basic functionality issues immediately.
The freezer compartment has stopped working unfortunately and needs repair or entire fridge replacement (not a small feat as it's built into the cabinetry).
The fridge looks great integrated into our newly installed kitchen - just make sure your kitchen building x-checks all door panel dimensions so it fit...
Purchased in November 2020 at Camberwell Electrics for $5,000.00.
Ice and water only available in s/s panels
As previously stated , ice and water " only available in stainless steel front panels " . Even supplied our cabinet maker with ice and water panel to try to fit it to cabinetry but alas could not remove it without breaking it , so now we have a expensive fridge / freezer with no ice or water capability . This should be stated in the specifications and not imply that " custom panels will suit.
Looks good and works
Ok, so this is not a cheap fridge, but we designed our kitchen around it and i'm extremely happy that we did. It looks awesome and sits flush with the cabinetry with no gaps around the edges. We have the stainless steel doors, but it can be fitted with cabinetry door instead if desired. The ice and water is "only" available with the stainless doors, but I can't see why a semi-decent cabinet maker couldn't create a door with the hole in it - maybe that's something that F&P could look into as an improvement.
It's quiet, it cools evenly, it does what a fridge is supposed to do.

Handsome refrigerator that performs as expected!
We've been using our F&P french door integrated refrigerator for 7mth now. It keeps a good even temp- no freezing spots and no milk going off too early. It looks amazing fully integrated. Good size for a family of 4. Very quiet operation- we don't hear it. Really happy, would recommend for looks and function.
Questions & Answers
Is this fridge available with plumbed ice maker only with custom doors?
It is only available in the ice and water model with the stainless doors. There doesn't appear to be any particular reason why though, apart from the potential difficulty of routing a custom door around the water dispenser. I do think however that a good cabinet maker could make custom doors that would work.
Have enjoyed our integrated fridge for about 7 months now but this week suddenly cracks have appeared on the inside floor of the fridge. Have you heard of this happening and what the cause would be. Is this a warranty thing? We only use a wet cloth with dishwashing liquid so pretty sure thats a reasonable cleaning method and have cleaned using this method with every fridge have owned. what would cause this?
