You'll dial the temperature up or down using a simple slider with three presets: "cold," "recommended" and "coldest."

The marquee feature inside the fridge is the "Custom-Flex" door. It's a modular design with a variety of accessories you can swap in and out, or move from left to right.

Some are typical drawers and classics, like this butter bin.

Others, like this can dispenser, are more uncommon.

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

There's also a drawer at the top that runs the width of the fridge.

Down at the bottom, you'll find two crisper bins for fruits and vegetables. Each one has a slider that lets you adjust the humidity level inside.

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

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.
