Capacity

With bottom freezers, your fresh ingredients are up top. In this fridge, you get 7.3 cubic feet of fresh food storage space.

Freezer down below

There's another 3.2 cubic feet down in the freezer, bringing you total to 10.5 cubic feet. That's about average for compact-sized models like this one.

Crisper bin

The refrigerator offers a single crisper bin -- it's actually the coldest spot in the fridge.

Room for groceries

Despite the small size, we were very nearly able to fit our entire, full-sized load of test groceries into the fridge (albeit in cramped fashion).

Default setting

Temperatures were colder towards the bottom of the fridge, which makes sense since the freezer is down at the very bottom. The top shelves all ran a bit warm.

Coldest setting

Temperatures fell a bit at the coldest setting, but not by much.
