Custom-Flex

Check out the door bins, though. This is one of Frigidaire's "Custom-Flex" refrigerators, which mean that the bins hang on clever rails, making it easy to move them around as needed. You can also swap them out for extra features like a can dispenser or a water bottle holder.

Fold it up, too

If you need even more room, you can go ahead and fold the shelf up and out of the way.

Performance woes

My main beef with this fridge is that it runs way too warm at the default setting. Over a 72-hour test, each and every part of the fridge yielded an average temperature up above 40 degrees F. That's not good.

Minute by minute

Here's the graph of that 72-hour test. Not only was everything too warm, but temperatures weren't as steady as I'd have liked to see.

Coldest setting

Performance was better at the coldest setting, but we still had some hot spots, including the crisper bins in the body of the fridge. Even with the temperature turned all the way down, this fridge can't guarantee that it'll keep your groceries below 40 F. I'll say it again -- that's not good.
