This refrigerator is, if anything, too cold. The top shelf in fact freezes anything that is liquid and freezable. Water in a Brita pitcher...frozen solid. Gatorade...solid ice. Hot onions for hotdogs...ice. Everything else is appropriately cold. The only thing we can keep on the top shelf is beer, because it doesn't freeze. We were limited by the amount of space (height and width) so this was our only choice at the time. We are looking to redo the kitchen, so this will be replaced by another model. We are however happy with the other Maytag appliances that we have, so the replacement will probably be a Maytag. Noise Level This refrigerator is very quiet. Interior Organization Light/controls intrusive on the top shelf. The center can only hold short items that won't freeze. Temperature Control As I said, it's too cold on the top shelf of the refrigerator. The other shelves are fine. Durability Can't kill it with a stick! Design Top shelf has problems with light and controls.
