Samsung killed the salsa moat in its best French door fridge to date

Refrigerators
[MUSIC] Samsung is no stranger to fancy expensive refrigerators and this one here, the RF23M8090SG, is one of the latest and also one of the most expensive at a retail price of $4200. For your money, you are getting a new and improved design. With attractive stainless steel accents inside of the fridge, a nifty auto-filling water pitcher in the door, and modern-looking recessed handles for the freezer and the flex drawer. Now if you're a repeat viewer of my Samsung fridge reviews, then you might remember that I've long taken umbrage with a certain narrow little shelf tucked away beneath the ice maker in these high end French door models. That shelf was way too tight to fit anything so we poured some Pace piquante into it and called it the salsa moat since it wasn't good for anything else. Well today I am happy to announce here in this video that the salsa moat is dead. Samsung killed it off and replaced it with this water pitcher along with the butter bin type compartment next to Perks to it. It's a little bit more deep than before and can almost fit things, well, good enough. [NOISE] As for the rest of the fridge, you get about 23 cubic feet of total storage space which is fine for a counter depth model like this one. Get the full size model that sticks out past your counter tops if you need a little more room. Now, Samsung's high-end fridges are usually pretty strong performers in our cooling tests. And the ORF23M was no different. At both the default setting and the coldest setting, it yielded steady, accurate temperatures throughout the entire fridge without any hotspots. I also appreciated that flex drawer and its variety of temperature settings. It was able to hit all of them within a degree or two. And I was able to switch it from the warmest setting down to the coldest setting in three hours which is really great. I think it's a pretty good-looking design, too. If you like this new trend of black stainless steel appliances that'll fit right in, and with darker metallic accents on the fridge and the flex drawer, it feels like something you might find in a chef's kitchen. It's a sturdy, good-looking build, but is it worth $4,200? I'll leave that to you. To you and your budget and point that these [UNKNOWN] refrigerators typically end up on sale for at least 5 or $600 off. So maybe consider waiting for prices like that before you splurge. But if you do decide to splurge, I really think that you're gonna like this fridge quite a bit. [MUSIC]
