Energy Star 22.6 Cubic Foot Counter Depth Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PureAir Ultra Filters from the Professional Collection
We love the counter depth refrigerator. The finish is great to keep clean. The only negatives so far is that we have frozen lettuce in veggie drawer and the cost of replacement water / air filters are way out of line.
We also purchased the professional series, slide in range which is great. We bought the professional series dishwasher and the professional series over the range microwave. We like both of these products with one minor concern. The microwave signals when the cook time is done continuously which is annoying if you can't tend to it right away. An option to let us have it signal only once would be nice.

Design good, quality - not so much
I loved the design and price of this fridge and ended up putting in all new Frigidaire Professional fridge, double oven, dishwasher and microwave during a kitchen remodel. They look great, but in the past year we have gone through 2 motherboards and an inverter board on the fridge, and needed repair calls twice on the double oven after the thermal overload kept tripping during self-cleaning. The dishwasher tray also needed replacing. Hopefully we are safe with the microwave - maybe because it was the one made in Canada. I'm very thankful I bought an extended warranty. Fortunately CountyWide, the servicing company, was outstanding, with technicians that were extremely service oriented, full of integrity and were good stewards of our time.

A few big problems
Unfortunately, this regrigerator has 2 problems that lead me to provide a low rating. I had high hopes but the ice cube dispenser is horrible. The ice cubes shoot out in such large quantities that we have to use large plastic cups to insure the ice does not end up all over the floor and that no delicate glass is broken. This alone causes me to never want another fridge like this, but there is another deal-breaker. The interior veggie bins squeek horribly every time we open them--like screeching chalk on a black board.

We bought this refridgerator specifically to fit into our new kitchen with surround pantry. It looks beautiful and functions well. The freezer is a small, so I am glad I have an extra fridge in the garage.
My biggest complaint is that although the doors are virtually finger print free, the handles show EVERYTHING!!! I am constantly wiping them off as it shines and really stands out against teh smooth door- why couldn't the manufacturer make the handles out of the same material as the doors?

Looks Great--poor quality
The fridge looks good but it came with many problems.
The ice maker failed with in 3 months and was replaced.
The Fridge failed while we were away and lost all our food.
Fridge was replaced. Ice-maker failed again. This was replaced. Do not think of placing more than romane lettuce in the drawers as they are very weak and will not handle more than a couple pounds. All our drawers failed. The interior lining of the fridge cracked in a few places. Again the fridge was replaced.

Bought this to upgrade my current fridge in the kitchen. Love the stainless look, but when the delivery was made I found out the the hinge on top of the fridge would allow a tight fit into my alloted cabinet space...basically I could not push the unit all the way back against the wall..it now sticks out from the front of the cabinet about 4"-5".....the dimensions from the manufacture does NOT account for this hinge coverplate....so be careful

I also have big problems with this (professional) refrigerator. Not only does the ice shoot out like the titanic hitting an ice berg, and the drawers have to be oiled because they screech so badly, but the water dispenser is so out of line with the glass that it barely goes in without totally missing the glass. This is not an engineering marvel by any means. Whoever designed this frig needs to evaluate their degree.

Just bought a very nice house here in AZ and wanted to compliment it with a counter depth fridge. After shopping around this met all the specs and looks great as well. My wife and kids like the paddle control for water/ice. Easier than the other type of sensor thingy requiring a good push to operate. 22.6 cubic feet is the smallest we have ever had but so far we have not noticed the difference.

Sorry - its a no.
We put the refrigerator between two tall cabinets. The doors were installed crooked. The sides of the unit is straight, but the doors are not. Do but purchase unless you have at least an inch on each side - so a 38 inch opening.

This is my husband's favorite appliance! he loves the dimming lights, and it has enough room, and organization for all my food and needs. I love it too!
