Sliding spill-proof shelves

Inside the fridge, the two central shelves each have spillproof rims, and slide out to offer easier access to items in the back.

A warm performer

In our performance tests, each section in the FGHI2164QF's fridge ran at least a few degrees warm.

Up above 40

At the default setting, you can see that none of the 10 regions we tested ever made it down below 40 degrees for more than a minute or so. The test covers 72 hours.
