It needs to be big. It's just us, but with all of the concoctions and various things I have going all the time, plus the 2 dogs eating from the fridge, and usually weekly dinner parties, I need lots of storage space. I think our current fridge is 25cu ft.
It needs to be affordable. We are newlyweds and would rather put extra money into fixing up the house. That said, we'll spend the money if it's worth it. I'd rather buy something quality and have it for a long time and not hate myself for saving a few hundred bucks every time I open the door.
We'd prefer no extra bells & whistles. We don't use a water dispenser and don't need an ice maker. If one of the better fridges has those features, sure, I can live with them, but they're not plusses to me.
NO side by side or freezer on the top. Needs to be a bottom freezer. Our current fridge is a bottom freezer, but 2 big wide doors. I have seen french door fridges and freezer drawers. Do you have one? Do you love it? Do you hate it?
Needs to be white.
What do you think?
