Ho-hum performance from this Frigidaire Gallery French door refrigerator

Kitchen & Household
[MUSIC] Hey guys, I'm CNet's Ry Crist, here at the Frigidaire gallery french-door refrigerator, model FGHB2866PF. This is a 27.2 cubic foot capacity model with this nice. Smudge proof stainless steel exterior. Now that doesn't mean you can't leave fingerprints on it. You try hard, you definitely can, just like that, but it does mean that it's pretty easy to clean, just a quick with a paper towel and it's back to looking like it's fresh from the factory floor. Now turning inside the fridge, you see plenty of options for customizing your shelving as well. You can take this top shelf and tuck it under for large items. You can do a sort of similar thing with this shelf and fold it up against the ice maker. The icemaker is located inside the fridge and not in the door, that's sort of bucking a trend of indoor icemakers and you lose some space because of that. So overall a fairly spacious interior, we're able to squeeze in our entire load of test groceries inside of it along with a couple of large items that we test with to sort of stress it out, a big cake tray, a casserole dish, extra large pizza box. With a little bit of re-organization and sort of moving things around strategically, we could get almost all that inside of the frig. That said, the refrigeration performance is not as good as we hoped here. We test for 72 hour stretches at various temperature settings, so, at 37 degrees, we got readings that we didn't like, especially here on the top shelf, where the hot air can sort of rise a little bit. So, wipe that from the interior of your frig. Maybe the doors make it a little warmer, but the actual body of the fridge should stay nice and cool. Definitely below 40. Testing again at 33 degrees, everything stayed well below 40 degrees, definitely food safe, definitely good to use. If I owned this fridge, I'd probably keep it down at 33, and I wouldn't feel comfortable going up much higher than 35, and that takes away some of your flexibility to save energy. Energy. This Frigidaire Gallery French Door unit sells for $2,600, though you can find it for a couple hundred less. We're finding it for about $2,200 at various retail outlets here at the time of this video, but keep in mind, that you can get French doors units for as low as $1,500 800 nowadays. And also, once you're spending more than two thousand, you can start to find some pretty cool features like door in door and food showcase fridges from Samsung. Those are interesting and they merit consideration. There's nothing quite as exciting or sexy with this fridge that makes me rush to recommend it. Thanks for watching.
