Here's a luxurious fridge you can actually afford
This is Samsung's french four door food showcase refrigerator.
It's a luxurious $3700 fridge from last year but this year you can get it from major retailers like home depot and best buy for around $2500 at that price.
I think it taxes deal.
Now this fridge is a traditional french door design with the split door fridge at top and the.
Drawer style freezer down below.
But you get a nice modern aesthetic, thanks to that black stainless steel finish.
This fridge also has two pretty compelling features that help set it apart from a lot of the competition.
First up is this flex zone drawer down here.
It's got 3.8 cubic feet of extra storage space for groceries, along with these four dedicated temperature presets.
You can cycle through those just by pressing this button It's a very nice feature to have in a fridge like this.
You also get a food showcase compartment, which is just the right half of the door.
You open it by pulling this trigger in the handle, and when you do, the front panel will come open, while the door will stay closed.
That lets you get a beer or some butter out, without actually opening the door.
I really like the interior of this fridge too, and I love the fact that you get two sets of movable shelves.
You get this one that slides back out of the way, and then another one that folds up out of the way with a little bit of extra effort.
I am less enamored, however with that ice master ice Maker up on the top shelf.
It eats up a little over a half cubic foot of space.
And it drops ice down through that chute in the door.
And that chute kinda blocks off the shelf below it.
Performance-wise, this is a very solid fridge.
It held accurate, steady temperatures in the body of the refrigerator throughout all of my tests.
And even that food showcase compartment did well.
It held all the average temperature Which is below 30 degrees Fahrenheit which is a very good result.
The stand out though is probably that FlexZone Drawer all four those temperature presets were very very accurate especially the cold setting done at 29 degrees.
All and all the bottom line on the street pretty simple right now it's a great looking refrigerator with excellent performance and a very cool features at $2500 it's absolutely.
The best performance we've seen from a side-by-side fridge
