CNET First Look
You had one job, FrigidaireThe $1,100 Frigidaire FGHT1846QF is filled with surprisingly helpful features -- but it just isn't cold enough.
[MUSIC] I'm about to tell you not to buy this refrigerator, but before I do, I wanna say a couple of nice things about it, cuz there are things I like about it. It's a pretty basic looking, average sized top freezer fridge with 18 .3 cubic foot of storage, 14.2 of which are in the fridge. That's not a huge number in and of itself, but Fridgidare did a nice job of helping you get the most out of that storage space, with a thoughtfully designed interior that's filled with features you don't usually find in top freezers. There's a shelf that slides in, and folds out of the way. There are custom flex storage bins here in the drawers that you can switch out with, things like can dispensers, and water bottle holders, You've got this pantry drawer that runs the width of the fridge. There's also a smudge proof stainless steel finish here on the exterior of the fridge. It's one of my favorite features that Frigidaire offers because it's very good at repelling fingerprints. It's finely contoured and doesn't leave streaks quite so easily. The problem The problem here is performance. If you take a look at this heat map, you can see it's orange, orange, orange, orange. It's orange all over the fridge, all over the door. That means it's hot, over 40 degrees. That's not what you want. That's a food safety benchmark from the FDA. We'd like to fridge to come in under that number. This fridge doesn't. It's a just a warmer fridge that I'd be comfortable with in my kitchen, so I say skip it even though those features are pretty interesting. [MUSIC]
