LOVE this fridge.
This fridge looks great and is so versatile. Had to buy a smaller fridge but didn’t want to downsize. So much space and adjustable shelf is a bonus. The automatic ice maker is fantastic. LOVE this fridge.
This Fridge is Perfection !!
We needed a larger fridge than our old 519L F&P to fit in a space 90cm wide and 740cm high. Quiet was also a top priority. I would not have contemplated buying a fridge which cost this much normally. Wow this fridge is awesome and would highly recommend it. It is so quiet you would not know it is running. It makes ice in ice drawer and you don't need the fridge to be plumbed into the system like the F&P. Your vegetables are kept in the bottom drawer and stay crisp and very large draw they are not kept if top of fridge. The freezer draw is larg...e and also a draw to place hot food in to snap cool it down. Everything about this fridge is great. The only issue I found with the tray to place your milk the tray on the door has 2 slots only room for 2 litre mile at back of tray if you have any small items in front of milk you have to take out as items in front. They should have designed the milk tray to drop forward to remove milk as tray is divided into 2 to put milk and other items. Good work

Fabulous Fridge! Amazing vegetable crisper!
A family of five adults - we needed a larger fridge than our old 519L F&P to fit in a space 90cm wide and 740cm high. Quiet was also a top priority. I would not have considered spending this amount on a fridge but received a fabulous recommendation from someone. It is genuinely quiet, even when working hard, so much better than our F&P which was rated rather well for quiet. The vegetable bin is huge and without doubt, tomatoes on the top shelf stay firm and lower down, leafy greens crisp for amazing periods of time. A whole new experience for u...s! Previously we used 1 whole shelf plus the fruit and vegie bins for vegetables. We now even put soft drinks in the front divide of this bin. The freezer is a decent size and the vesta drawer is fabulous. Leftovers can be quickly cooled and then put back in the main fridge or freezer. I place fresh meat there when planning to cook over the next few days and find these meats thaw very quickly or are perfect for thin slicing for stirfry dishes. In the main fridge, without vegies, there is tons of room. Ours looks bare all the time! The LED light and all the clear containers are fabulous. The sliding trays allow me to reach the very back of the top level and I am only 155cm tall. The egg tray, chiller and small container are great. We haven't needed to alter any temperatures but the control panel does allow a wide choice of temperatures for each section, if you desire. There is a quick option for a quick cool after a big shop but the fridge seems to do this very well without using this option. Perhaps in hot weather this may be useful. It has 4 wheels so easy to move without damaging the floor. A big plus for me is the small space required for the opening doors and drawers - no more asking people to move their chair closer to the table so the doors can be opened. This fridge uses more than 200KW electricity annually LESS than our old fridge while providing much more sensible storage and a very aesthetically pleasing experience. I now have space to store the ironing board and a broom in the cabinet next to the fridge. It is amazing that so much storage is available with a smaller footprint(size and power use) than the F&P. Mitsubishi Electric provide a complete 5 year warranty with a further 5 years on the compressor only. This shows real confidence in the quality of their fridges. While making my decision, I hit upon a one day price reduction to $2671 including delivery and removal of the old fridge. That pushed me to buy and honestly I am so happy that I did. This is $300-400 less than the best price normally available. Fruits and vegetables, in particular, are preserved so much better in this type of fridge. Can not recommend it enough!

Excellent Fridge With Many Convenient Features
First of all with 6 doors and a stylish design, this fridge look really elegant. The features are really impressive as well. It is very spacious inside because of the thin wall design. Each compartment has its own sub compartment. For example the Freezer and Vegetable drawer both have sliding drawers within which effectively makes them multi shelved; furthermore the bottom space of the said compartments are partitioned very conveniently, this enables you to separate and fit a lot of stuff in neatly. The main refrigerator compartment too has ver...y thoughtful features as a Chilled Compartment and 2 more small item compartments. Apart from the compartments and door shelves there are 2 more features in the refrigerator compartment that I think is pretty cool: the adjustable rack that moves up-and down with the use of a slider (no need to take it out and re-fit like a conventional shelf) and the retractable top shelf. The Versa Drawer is pretty useful piece of technology and has several modes of operation; the coolest thing about it is that what you freeze in it does not stick together (e.g: sliced/chopped meat, bacon) so you can separate it easily. The ice tray is pretty neat and handy as well, and I guess you can use it to store food as well if you want to. There are so many convenient and thoughtful features integrated in to this fridge. For example once you turn on the 'Rapid Cool Bulk Shopping' function it will remember what drawers you open to put you items in and will rapidly cool them (and once done automatically switch back to normal mode) - this is very thoughtful since items like Milk and meat needs to be cooled without much delay. It has many more useful functions such as soft freezing, super-cool freezing, rapid ice making, cooling drinks quickly, keeping vegetables moist etc. which come in handy pretty often. The touch panel is pretty cool as well when it lights up. It is made in Japan and is extremely good value for money. And I'm actually surprised that for what it has to offer this fridge is really under-advertised. Also it it very silent in operation. After much research this was the best option I found out there, and after a few weeks of using it, it is pretty clear that it was the right pick.
Lots of space in a small package
Good use of internal space in upper part of fridge. Can easily keep 3 x 2L milks in door compartment. Smaller freezer than most of this size, which is ideal as we don't keep much in the freezer. Excellent (and large for size of fridge) vegetable and fruit compartment that keeps things fresh for ages - good for us as we cook our own food. Good ice maker - did not go for a fridge with water on tap, as reviews indicate this is a feature that fails frequently, but ice maker is really useful. Easy controls. Looks good. Easy to get into house on delivery. Have no regrets about purchasing the fridge.

Excellent Fridge - lots of room inside for small outside dimensions
Very well designed fridge - all of the draws and compartments work as they are supposed to. Ice Maker excellent without the need for plumbing. Special Versa section is perfect for keeping meat fresh as it soft freezes.

I love this fridge.
Everything is perfect. This size is so small. I am living in an apartment and the space is not big enough, but I need a large size fridge. This fridge fits everything that I need.

Loving my New Fridge
Love my new fridge, it is so quite... really enjoy my icemaker (without having to do pipe conections) only thing I struggled with (only because we are 4 adults is the bottle space on the doors.. apart from that LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. And with the same comment about the colour in the store.. it definitely wasn't an issue once in my house
I will write a further review after I've used the fridge for a while but so far its been wonderful - so many features and so quiet. However like a previous reviewer I would like to comment on the colour. DON'T STRESS OVER THE COLOUR. I stewed over this fridge for so long regarding the colour - the fridge looked quite bronze in the shop and I was really worried it would stand out from my other stainless steel appliances. I wanted the fridge because it has fabulous reviews, it fitted into my restrictive fridge cavity and had the largest capacit...y compared to comparable sized fridges. Just the colour!! So glad I purchased it - it looks as stainless steel as my other appliances, doesn't stand out at all. Even the brownish panel looks absolutely fine, hardly noticeable. It looks fabulous - can't believe I was concerned about this.
Rapt in colour, and set up.
Have just taken possession of one of these refrigerators, and am looking forward to learning to use it to it's full potential. Early days yet, but I wanted to to comment on advertising, and lighting in retails outlets. I almost didn't buy it as I thought it was going to have a pink tinge to it - and would therefore not fit in with other stainless steel products in our kitchen. It is not pink at all and blends in in extremely well. More a stainless steel look with grey borders. When we first saw it in a retail shop, it was very pink and the salesperson told me it was not for me, if I wanted it to be stainless steel looking.

This was the only fridge which would provide a useful increase in volume over the previous one whilst fitting into our existing 80 cm-wide,175 cm-high space. The ice-maker using an internal water reservoir and a special ice drawer was an attraction, as was the configuration of the various compartments, with doors to the refrigerator compartment and drawers for other compartments. It looks great too.
The ice blocks are smaller than those produced in conventional plastic trays, but that just means that you use more of them. We have found that ...the vegetable compartment is a bit colder than is ideal - the temperature is close to zero with the temperature setting on "L" - which counterintuitively is the warmest setting. I've been moving a max-min thermometer around inside the fridge for nearly a year monitoring the various zones and have found the other zones to be more satisfactorily regulated, though the temperature range fluctuation is not as well controlled as in the previous fridge. The smaller ice drawer and Versa drawer seemed a little flimsy at first as a result of the design of the runners, but they work. Vegetables dehydrate faster than they did in the previous fridge, even with the moisture control set as recommended, but we simply keep carrots etc. in the thin plastic bags we buy them in. My criticisms are minor - this is the best fridge I've ever owned.

Expensive, yes. Worth it...definitely
With a fridge cavity limited to 900mm we thought we wouldn't find a fridge that would fit but had the capacity we needed. The mitsubishi is tall and deep but surprising thin in width. The nom plumbed ice maker is amaxing and the draws have heaps of space. We upgraded from an LG side by side 581l frisge and have ended up with nearly 150l more space, and because the Mitsubishi is a true 3.5 star energy fridge, our annual energy consumption has reduced by nearly 200 Kw per year. The 5 year warranty is unbeatable. Expensive, yes. Worth it...definitely.

The Glorious Centrepiece of the Kitchen
Buying a fridge is so very boring. All fridges are basically the same...right?
Upon seeing this refrigerator, it just stood apart from the rest with its stylish finish and multiple French drawers.
Jump inside and these multiple compartments allow you to change the temperature of each area individually.
Stylish glass shelves and an adjustable height shelf make this unit a joy to use. Ample space for bottles and jars and even a fold back shelf!
The automatic ice drawer is a stroke of genius. I didn't want to connect to plumbing so ...simply filling the container in the main part of the fridge, ensures an automatically topped up drawer full of ice. The cooling drawer is superb for cooling freshly cooked meals or alternatively use it to soft freeze ice-cream or other produce or just turn it onto deep freeze to max out your freezing space.
Questions & Answers
Finally got this fridge yesterday, 574L, and I must say I’m very disappointed that my fridge is not as quiet as others are saying.
We can clearly hear it above TV, it’s an L shape living room/kitchen so there’s a bit of distance between TV and fridge.
Is something wrong with it?
Maybe it is working very hard today because you have just fully loaded it up? Mine is in an open plan kitchen/family area. Our dining table is only 1 metre away and the sofa 3-4 metres away and we can't hear the fridge at all, even when standing right next to it. I do not use the ice maker but believe that can make noise while operating. Make sure the fridge is level and see how it is tomorrow. If it is noisy contact Mitsubishi Electric.
I know it says 15dB noise level but is it really that quiet?
Im sorry but I couldn't answer this objectively as I haven't had it tested.
The only time I hear any noise from this fridge is when it fills the ice cube tray up it makes a small amount of noise when it dispenses.
Noise isn't an issue for us as the fridge is in the back of the house - maybe if I was living in a one bedroom unit with the fridge near by I would judge it differently. I would definitely recommend this fridge as it has so mush internal room for the small exterior space. The crisper section is phenomenal and keeps the fruit and vegies crisp for a long time. I hope this helps.
Why is the vegetable drawer on the bottom, I am wondering whether it might be inconvenient to have to bend over so much for one of the most used spaces in the fridge
I’m looking for a new fridge and I’m reading everyone’s review but I’m so surprised this is the first time someone has mentioned the elephant in the room. We are a family that are health-conscious and eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, why on earth would they put them on the bottom shelf! Surely the freezer should have gone on the bottom? I’m happy to spend this kind of money on a good fridge and I love the 5 year warranty etc but I am in a wheelchair and I don’t think my husband is going to be one bit happy about all this bending over - very odd design!
