Our old fridge is on its last legs, and our home warranty company has given us about $1700 towards the purchase of a new one.
By spending an additional $1000-$1500 or so, we can get a really good one.
However, that begs the question as to what “really good” means. The online reviews are truly all over the place, and some brands/models which are rated very highly by some sites are trashed by others. I have the most recent Consumer Reports fridge buying guide, and it picks LG for the tops in French door refrigerators. The problem is that many other sites slam LG. Aaargh!
So, we remain confused. We don’t need super-fancy stuff like wi-fi and display screens and don’t necessarily need an external water/ice-dispenser given that this appears to be a vulnerability for break-downs.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to a solid brand that has low repair incidence and works well? Alternatively, if there is any such thing as a definitive trustworthy site for fridge reviews that would be greatly appreciated.
