We purchased new appliances for our kitchen last year and this refrigerator was the one we purchased. we had several different brands to select but made this one our choice. First, I really like the style which is very important in your kitchen. I also wanted something that was not entirely stainless and really liked the fact that this had black handles as well as the black water dispenser. It really makes the kitchen look great! the available room inside was very important and it does have quite a bit of room as we are a family of six and both sides hold lots of products. the price was really good as the store was having a sale so that helped quite a bit too.
