MBR1953YES 30" Freestanding Bottom Freezer Refrigerator With 18.5 Cu. Ft. Capacity, Automatic Moisture Control, Adjustable Door Bins, Auto Defrost and Glide-Out Wire Freezer, in Stainless Steel is rated 4.3137 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some great features.....some not so much This refrigerator has a great design and I love the adjustable, easy clean shelves! I have a very small opening for a refrigerator and this is the only model that would fit. However, the drawback is - the handle on the fridge door is NOT reversible.....the freezer is (but why would you want one door going one way and the other door opposite! The instructions in the manual that comes with refrigerator shows it can be changed - but it cannot! I think the freezer would be much better if it were a drawer and not door with pull out basket. (Just my 2 cents).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-around great product I have a smaller kitchen and had a hard time finding a bottom-freezer fridge that fit my available space. This model looks sleek and upgrades the whole kitchen's appearance. It has ample space and the side drawers allow us to store all the many different juices/teas our family of four likes to drink. The spill-proof shelves are very easy to clean. The fridge does make some noise but it is not very noticeable and after a while I don't think you'd even be aware of it. It also costs much less to run than our previous fridge. All in all a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Performance I bought this 6 months ago and am happy with the performance of the refrigerator. There is ample space in the unit. The re-configurable shelving units and drawers make it easy to customize the inside. The movable storage on the door is easy to use for small items as well as large items up to a gallon of milk. The ice maker in the freezer works well and produces a large amount of ice that serves well for entertaining. Overall, great product, and I am hoping to see it last for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design for small space! This fridge is beautiful and the size is perfect for a standard kitchen fridge replacement. I've searched and searched for a replacement fridge (with the door on the bottom) to modernize my kitchen and this fridge is perfect. I've had it for almost 2 years and it is maintaining perfectly. The space in the doors and various pull out drawers (top and bottom) really maximize the space. There is a humming noise every now and again, but this is drown out easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Organized Because of our kitchen setup, we were limited in the type and size of the refrigerator we could get so I wasn't planning to be impressed. But I am! There are all sorts of adjustable shelves and drawers so you can basically create the exact refrigerator you want on the inside. I don't love the freezer - it's basically one big drawer that can be hard to manage on the bottom - but it does its job. Certainly not a deal breaker if you don't rely heavily on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fridge on Top is a Good thing Having the fridge on top and freezer on bottom is useful for me as I go into the freezer less frequently tan the fridge. The freezer door design is nice because every time I want to open the freezer I am not pulling out the entire freezer contents drawer. The unit is noisier than the fridge I replaced that was @18 years old. It is also hard to keep the stainless steel clean. Overall, I think this was a good value for the price I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great refrigerator. Great refrigerator. I love the door capacity. The freezer is good sized. My previous refrigerator had a top freezer. The bottom freezer design is much nicer. The glass shelves in the refrigerator are good quality, and the bins for fruits or vegetables are big. The stainless steel finish works well with my nickel drawer pulls and faucet. Overall I am very pleased with my new refrigerator, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is everything one could possibly want in a refr The ability to move shelves around to accommodate all my produce is an invaluable feature. An inch up or down and I can store 2 liter bottles where they didn't fit before. The ice-maker is awesome. All in all, this is the best refrigerator I have ever owned, and trust me when I tell you that I have owned the top brands before, but this one outperforms them all. Thank you Maytag for a truly great product.
