This is the 3rd incarnation of this fridge that I've purchased. The first (white) was bought 2nd hand, which I only had to replace because of recurring electrical brown outs (courtesy of Essential energy) cooking the fridge. The 2nd version I bought was also white, very stylish, and a fantastic fridge operationally. However when I recently sold my apartment, the buyers wanted all the furniture included, so goodbye much enjoyed fridge. When I moved into my new home, and when buying a new fridge I wouldn't consider anything else but this make...and design. This time around I've bought the more expensive stainless steel model, simply because Fisher & Paykel seem to have stripped down the inclusions of the standard white version, eg no egg racks or ice cube trays, and there was something else missing that I thought odd. And I didn't really like the look of the fridge with it's recessed handles, but I guess that's just a personal preference. Anyway, the design and functionality of this fridge can't be faulted. This size is ideal for a one or two person household. The bottom mount freezer section has brilliant capacity (I cook a fair bit and prefer generous freezer space), with 3 individual freezer bins and a central slimline tray for ice cubes, and it has some great operating features such as fast bottle chill. The fridge just seems to be a well considered design, with a great balance between freezer space, vegetable crispers, and fridge capacity. It's also very very quiet. Purchased whilst on sale at DJs, the RRP at that time was $1649 which I thought a bit steep when comparing brands, but still highly recommended.
Very Stylish Works Well
We bought this because it perfectly fits the alcove in our kitchen and it looks absolutely fantastic in place. Chills beautiful and very evenly. I really appreciated how quickly drinks cooled over summer. Plenty of freezer space and it is whisper quiet when running. We have had plenty of Fisher and Paykel machines in the past and they are always reliable. We think it's a very good choice.
Great Fridge Looks Fabulous
We went with Fisher and Paykel because our last fridge was with them and it put in a stellar performance.
This is a beautiful well designed fridge and a big relief after "old faithful'. It seems so much colder with the new fan forced system although I have found its important to keep food covered as it dries out more quickly.
It is easy to clean and looks beautiful in our kitchen and makes little more than the quietest hum. We are very pleased with it.
Great fit for a Medium Sized Home
This Fridge is a dream come true for a medium sized home like ours. The size of the fridge is perfect and fits in nicely within the space provided for the Fridge in the house.
The refrigerator part of the Fridge is very spacious and the door is solidly built. The shelves in the door are sturdy and holds bottles of milk, water and juices quite well. The shorter shelves are good for the jams, sauces and others.
The glass shelves are quite strong and I have observed they are scratch proof too. Cleaning is very easy and it has a spill prote...ctor that stops it from spilling on to other shelves. The freezer is good but could have been designed better to use the volume available in an optimum fashion. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase and definitely worth it.
Love this fridge.
It maintains the freshness of the fruits, veggies for more than 2 weeks without damage.
They keep the veggies fresh.
The only problem is if you use the top rack for yougurt it gets frozen and the veggies also gets wet. Avoid the top rack use it for drinks.
Great fridge for small family
Reasonably quiet. Stainless steel-great look. Dual crispers for fruits and vegs are great. Adjustable shelves-great flexibility.
Freezer at the bottom makes more sense. To be able to completely pull out freezer drawers is also great. Only thing-when you pull out the middle drawer, the bottom drawer comes out with it.
