  Relatively small and compact compared to most bottom-freezer refrigerators, the Amana ABB1921WEW has a swing-out freezer door rather than the typical pull-out drawer. This refrigerator is only available in white and is a relatively basic unit without many of the extras that are typical on larger and more elaborate bottom-freezer refrigerators. It is not set up for a through-the-door water-and-ice dispenser, although an ice maker is available as an optional kit. This refrigerator works well in apartments, condominiums or other homes with small kitchens, and fits into a 30" opening.

What People Are Saying:

The Amana ABB1921WEW was on the 2011 Best Buy list (the highest ranking) at Consumer Reports, which rated it excellent for temperature performance, very good for noise and ease of use and good for energy efficiency, with Consumer Reports finding "no discernible flaws in its performance." There aren't many user reviews online but they are primarily positive. For example, at Home Depot about 90% of the 18 user reviews recommend this refrigerator, with many praising the adjustable shelves and flexible use of the interior space, and saying it's a good option for getting a bottom-freezer refrigerator into a small kitchen. However, one reviewer notes major repairs were needed in less than two years.
