Fridge of my dreams!
I love this fridge. It’s so deep and well thought out space wise - much better than my old fridge. Yet still small enough to fit in a small apartment fridge space. It’s great having the plumbed in cold water - we drink so much more water everyday now than we used to. And the automatic ice maker is going to be a lifesaver in the summer months. Really happy with my purchase.
I loveeeee my fridge. 3 years on and it still looks brand new. all functions work perfectly. Water filter and ice maker are great. Space is great, as are storage areas (shelves, trays, etc). Freezer is great with small and large drawers. Easy to adjust temperature in fridge or turn on/off bottle chill or ice maker. Would by 10 more if I needed it.
Great fridge, good storage
This fridge is well designed and has a good amount of fridge and freezer storage space. It does nto use as much electricity as other fridges and is economical to run. It is quiet when running. stainless steel marks easily so requires constant wiping. take care when relocatign as the firdge door dents easily.
Fridge temp keeps changing
Hard to clean, has a very loud hum at night. The shelves arealso really hard to clean, the feet are just plastic screw on and look cheap.7 and the doors mark really easily.
I get fed up of wiping finger prints from all over the doors.
I would rather have the shiny stainless steel model.
Love this fridge. Well designed compartments in both the fridge and freezer sections. Love that we can have a water and ice function in such a compact fridge - this was a must have but can be difficult to find in a smaller fridge. Quite expensive but worth it. Very happy with our purchase.
Ideal for family of four
Temperature and storage wise it is well designed, but I think the storage for bottom freezer with two draws only is hard to manage all the frozen products.
I have been using it for around ten years now but still maintain to keep it quiet and no frost which I had problems with previous fridge getting frosted every now and then.

So far, so good
Loving the Fisher & Paykel E442BRXFDU5 so far...though we have only had it for under a week. This model has a plumbed water dispenser and ice maker. They both seem to be functioning well, once all air was cleared out of the system.
The fridge itself is a lovely design - it knocks our old one out of the park! The interior lighting is lovely and bright, it's very easy to see what you have in there. One of the most influential factors of purchasing this fridge over others was the fact that it has so many options with shelving - each shelf can b...e adjusted to a different height with rungs every few centimetres, which makes it very convenient for our family. The crisper drawers are great, they slide in and out with ease and I love the fact that the humidity can be adjusted for each side. The freezer is of good functionality too - the only downside I can see is the flat draw, I can't really imagine what I'll ever use that for (maybe freezer blocks or ice packs), we don't have too many flat items for freezing and it does seem to take up a reasonable amount of space that perhaps could have added to the depth of the drawer. It's not a problem for us, as we have a stand alone freezer as well, but this might be an issue for family's that really need that extra freezer space. One thing to mention is the exterior door handles - the position of our fridge in the kitchen is against a wall, and we had to go with the option for the doors to open to the right, towards open space, otherwise the large handles would have stopped the doors from opening past 90degrees and we would not have had full access to the crisper drawer. Just something to be mindful of.
So far mostly good.
My fridge with this model number has the handles on the left (reverse of that shown in the picture) and it has a flitered chilled water dispenser through the door (and an automatic ice cube maker using the filtered water).
The fridge is quiet, a faint hum that I tuned out entirely after a few days. Crispers are larger than they seem and the humidity settings on them work well. Stainless steel exterior surface wipes clean effortlessly with a damp kitchen sponge. I love having the drawers in the bottom mount freezer.
I haven't had the fr...idge plumbed in yet - will be done in a couple of months when I get my kitchen replaced, so I will come back then to review the water filtration and dispensing and the automatic ice cube maker. My one criticism so far of the fridge is that while the fridge is usable without being plumbed in, making ice cubes manually in trays in the freezer is awkward. There is nowhere in the freezer drawers to secure ice cube trays without them spilling over. It's a bit of a nuisance now while I wait for the plumbing job. And could become a nuisance in future if ever the automatic ice cube maker breaks down or if the water filters become unavailable or too expensive or difficult to keep replacing.
