A simple build

The fridge is pretty innocuous to look at, with a basic build and none of the flash of the original Food Showcase fridge.

Touch controls

Like a lot of modern fridges, the RH25H5611SR offers touch controls above the water dispenser, with attractive blue LED lights.

Food Showcase

There's a trigger on the bottom half of the fridge door handle. Squeeze it, and you'll open the front panel of the fridge, revealing the in-door shelves inside.

Sliding shelves

Those three shelves all feature spillproof rims. They slide out like drawers, too, offering easy access to items in the back.

Ice Master

The ice maker sits inside the freezer, and feeds ice down through the water dispenser.

Showcase on performance

With no orange hotspots in the body of the fridge, this is a very decent result for a side-by-side fridge at the default setting.
