Default-setting heat map

At the default setting, the body of the fridge stayed below 40 degrees F, but temperatures were still a little warm.

Coldest-setting heat map

The fridge still came in a degree or two warmer than the target temperature when we dialed the fridge down to its minimum setting of 34 degrees.

Minute-by-minute results

The one standout as far as accuracy is concerned? That Flex Zone Drawer. It's the red line in this minute-by-minute graph of the same test -- we dialed it up to the warmest setting, and it came in right on the money.
