refrigerator

Purchasing a new fridge this weekend. We have an old side by side. It's fine. But I can't really fit a frozen pizza in it, or a large frozen turkey. Thinking about going counter depth. But the freezer seems too narrow. Help!

What are things you like in a fridge? What are "must have" features?
What features are overrated?

I must have my water and ice dispenser. Other than that I'm not too picky as long as it can store a lot. I'd love to try one of those fridges with the freezer on the bottom.

We have a side by side one now and I hate it.  It's very pretty on the outside and wasn't cheap by a long shot, but the lack of space is super annoying.  I'd much rather have one that has the bottom drawer freezer and the top dedicated just to the fridge part.

Everything, and ice maker, Frost free, lots of space, easy to organize large bottles.

When I was younger, my parents had one where it was a drawer freezer on the bottom and split refrigerator doors on top. We actually really liked it. If you needed more room for a turkey or whatever, you just took the top drawer out of the freezer and it fit just fine.

Now we have a stand fridge with the freezer on top and a small deep freezer. It works so I'm happy lol

Hahaha - exactly what I just said, but I forgot the essential water and ice part.  Couldn't live without that.

The family I nanny for has that kind and I agree... They suck. They had to cut their DQ ice cream cake into thirds to get it to fit in the freezer lol

We have one that is the freezer on the bottom. I love it. It works for us.

They really do.  I thought I would love it when I first moved in with DF (after having an old-style one previously and his was much fancier), but they really do suck.  Especially with a family of 4-6.  I can't exactly stock up on anything, and we don't have room for a freezer in the garage.  It's on our list of things to replace ASAP because it drives me nuts.

Kinda what I'm leaning towards. I hate the side by side. No freezer space.

We have one with the freezer on the bottom and it's great. Tons of room on in the fridge and in the freezer. I can fit 2 gallons of milk side by side in each door and there are other shelves in the doors too. So much storage. I also have to have water and ice in the door too. So convenient.
