Open wide

The RF23M8090SG offers a total of 22.6 cubic feet of storage space, which is right on par for a counter-depth French door model. In addition to the 12.9 cubic feet in the fridge, you get an additional 3.1 cubic feet in the FlexZone drawer below it.

FlexZone

That FlexZone drawer features four distinct temperature settings, which lets you store delicate items such as meats and cheeses at a different temperature than the body of the fridge.

Touch controls

You'll find the controls for those temperature presets on the drawer's inner edge, along with controls for the rest of the refrigerator.

Auto-fill pitcher

That FlexZone drawer isn't a new feature, but this autofilling water pitcher is. Just dock it into place inside the door and it'll automatically fill up with fresh, filtered water. When the pitcher is full, the flow of water will automatically stop.

No salsa moat!

That compartment next to the pitcher replaces a narrow, useless little shelf we had affectionately termed the "salsa moat." Unlike before, the new compartment is big enough for an entire jar of the stuff (sort of).

Performance

Here are the average temperatures in the fridge at its default, 37-degree setting. As the abundance of blue indicates, it's about as close to a perfect performance result as we've seen.
