Main Product Features:

The first feature that I found to be exciting within this Whirlpool Gold Side-by-Side Refrigerator is its overall size. With a total storage capacity of 24.5 cubic feet, this refrigerator is massive. You will have plenty of room to store all of your fresh and frozen foods. This refrigerator is perfect for those that have large families or if you enjoy buying your food in bulk.

The refrigerator section of this appliance features a storage capacity of 14.9 cubic feet. Within this section you will be able to enjoy extra-wide SpillGuard shelves. These glass shelves are able to be adjusted in height and they glide out for easy storing as well as easy retrieval. There is also a humidity controlled crisper that is made specifically for your vegetables and fruits. Also, there is a temperature-controlled meat compartment that allows you to control the temperature to prolong the life of your fresh meats.

The snack bin allows you to place your snack foods within perfect reach without taking up shelf space. Another cool feature is the EZ-Tote Door Basket. This unique bin allows you to remove them from the refrigerator and use them as condiment trays, or any other type of tray.

Of course, there are door bins, however, the In-Door Cooling System is one of my favorite features of this refrigerator. In order to keep items you store in the door chilled, this refrigerator streams cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator door, keeping these items perfectly chilled without putting extra strain on the compressor.

The freezer compartment features 9.6 cubic feet of storage space, and is wide enough to store a standard size frozen pizza without a problem. There are a total of two freezer baskets that have been placed and designed to give you optimum reach. There are also two freezer door bins that actually tilt out, allowing you to store oddly shaped items as well as easy access to them.

The IceMagic Plus System creates ice 50% quicker than standard icemakers, which is a great feature to have when you are entertaining guests. Of course, there is a in-the-door ice and water dispenser, which is large enough for oversized bottles and cups.

Price and Availability:

This Whirlpool Gold Series Side-by-Side Refrigerator can be purchased online and through most appliance retail stores. You can expect to find an average price of $2,200 for the stainless steel model. For Bisque, Black and White models the price is lowered to around $2,000.
