  The Whirlpool Gold GB2FHDXWQ scales down the usually oversize bottom-freezer refrigerator to bring the convenience of fresh food at eye level to many apartments, condos and other home with small kitchens. This is a relatively straightforward unit with few extras, but it does come with a factory-installed ice maker. Like most bottom-freezer refrigerators, it is not set up for a through-the-door water-and-ice dispenser. However, it does include typical features like two humidity-controlled crisper drawers, gallon-container storage in the door bins, and adjustable shelves and bins that allow for flexible organization of the interior space.

Models: GB2FHDXWB (Black), GB2FHDXWQ (White), GB2FHDXWS (Stainless Steel)

What People Are Saying:

The Whirlpool Gold GB2FHDXWQ bottom-freezer refrigerator is on the 2012 recommended list at Consumer Reports, which rates it excellent for temperature performance and energy efficiency, good for noise levels and fair for ease of use but with only fair meat-keeper performance and poor crisper performance. User reviews are mostly positive, although a few report repeated breakdowns and recommend buying the extended warranty. Other user-reported areas of concern are a knocking sound that lasts a few seconds and is apparently a normal part of this refrigerator's operation, and a door handle that falls off if not installed properly when the unit is first set up. Positive user reviews praise this relatively compact model's unexpectedly ample storage, saying the adjustable shelves and bins make it easy to organize and customize this refrigerator .
