Amana Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator Review

I have always admired stainless steel appliances. The sophisticated, modern look... I mean, what's not to love? So of course I was super excited when Amana offered to send us a Stainless Steel Refrigerator to review.

Not familiar with Amana? Amana manufactures a large variety of easy to use and simple to care for appliances. They offer appliances without the bells and whistles, just smart, simple appliances for everyday people. I personally love that about them, the fact that they focus on quality rather than pizzazz makes me sure that I'll be getting an appliance that I can rely on for years to come.

We were given the opportunity to review the 18.5 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator and I absolutely love it. First of all, I've never owned a bottom-freezer refrigerator so I was super excited to give this baby a try. It definitely took a little getting used to, I don't know how many times I've opened the fridge thinking that it was the freezer, but now that we've had it for a few weeks I don't know what I'd do without it!

Stainless Steel Refrigerator 

The 18.5 cu. ft. Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator is super spacious with four half-width adjustable shelves, gallon door storage, a dairy center, deli drawer, two crisper drawers, and even adjustable door bins. It's super easy to adjust the shelves and door bins so that you can fit everything exactly where you want it. But my favorite features are the Adjustable Spillsaver glass shelves that help keep spilled juice contained rather than leaking all over your fridge.

The EasyFreezer pull-out drawer has become another favorite feature of mine. The door opens and closes so smoothly, even when the freezer is filled to the brim. The freezer features two wire baskets so that you everything is organized and easy to find. The upper basket slides out easily so you can find exactly what you're looking for, while the bottom basket is spacious and holds tons of frozen foods.


I honestly can't say enough great things about the refrigerator from Amana. It's modern, it's roomy, it's ENERGY STAR qualified, it's basically everything anyone could ask for in a fridge! Plus it comes in a larger 21.9 cu. ft. size for those with more space in their kitchen.

You can purchase the 18.5 cu. ft. Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator from Amana in black, white, or stainless steel for a suggested retail price of $1249 to $1449.

This review helps tremendously. I am on the search for an appliance package for my house that's being built to be done by June. I'm getting $2200 appliance allowance for a stove, microwave, and fridge. I'm struggling with keeping prices low but still get stainless appliances and I'm only limited to two stores. I do have the option of applying the allowance back to the house on other things and buy the appliances on our own if we find a better deal elsewhere. One of the store has Amana appliances. The price of this fridge isn't too bad and I do love french door fridges. I don't need a large freezer space as I already have a deep freezer. I however do need a large fridge space because of all the fresh veggies and gluten free items I have to keep fresh. The only negative I see of this fridge is no water filter. I need filtered water and we were going to make sure we found a fridge with filtered water then I can stop paying culligans. Not sure if it's something I can sacrifice. It's not toddler friendly though. I had a HARD time keeping sticker safety locks on my former french fridge. I had to use a belt through the fridge and freezer straps to prevent my kids from opening the door. They're older now, thankfully but definitely not toddler friendly! ;)

Amanda L. Davis said...

I've never had a stainless steel appliance, but have been intrigued by them. Who doesn't want a sink that doesn't chip like the ceramic ones do?

I've also never had a bottom drawer freezer before - all our fridges/freezers have been side by side, but with the ice maker supply line leaking so badly we had to rip out our whole kitchen floor and part of a wall, having a bottom drawer with no supply line is looking pretty good to me. Also, your good review of it is helpful to know they're not a pain. It would seem like it would be.

We could use a new fridge right now because our old one is getting up their in years and half the drawers in it are broken and fall out. =(

jaymesmommy2004 said...

I have always been hesitant to try a fridge with the freezer on the bottom but your review has me rethinking that option. I like the space that this seems to offer and the fact that the fridge space is higher up would help my husband who has had 2 back surgeries from having to bend over to reach the crisper drawers. I will have to keep this on om my to think about list.

elizabeth p said...

I am in the market for a new fridge and have looked at the bottom freezer ones. Do you know how this will impact your power bill? Our current fridge is 13 years old and has been really easy on our bill. I am queenesperfect at yahoo.com

Sandy H said...

I would love to replace my side by side that doesn't have room for a pizza box. This one looks like it has nice wide shelves and has lot of space.

Sharon said...

My in laws have a freezer on the bottom and I always open the wrong part. But I can see how having the freezer on the bottom might be handy because kids can get their own ice for their drinks. Looks like it has tons of room, too. Our freezer (on top of the fridge) has a turkey in it right now and that's about all that will fit.

Laura Grace Andry said...

We have a stainless steel bottom freezer in this house. The last house we owned a side by side freezer and I miss the organizational ability that provided. I do like the shelving on this unit. Thanks for the review.

Tammy Shelton said...

Thanks for the great review! We have a side by side Stainless right now but I really think a bottom freezer would be so much better. Perfect for a active family with young boys. They can get to everything easier and save me time....which is a plus + plus.

Betty Wojnar said...

I really like how the food you eat regularly you don't have to reach too far to get it. Its perfect too if you have kids that get into the fridge, they can't get to the good stuff ahhahahaha. I can picture myself doing the same thing you did opening the fridge part and expecting to see frozen food. Great Product!

Shannon Hamner said...

Being a Mom of 3 boys we are always running out of room in our freezer and fridge after going shopping. I have wondered about the bottom freezer and if there was much space. I'm amazed by your pictures, it looks like there is a lot more space than our 2 door in both the fridge and freezer. I love the elegant look of it also. Sounds like a wonderful product and anything that is energy efficient is tops in my book!

price21100 said...

I didn't realize just how much I would love a fridge like this until I went to a friend's house the other day... I realized the fridge part has more space then my (new) side by side... I kinda want one of these now! LOL

Chelle Thompson said...

I love the space that the bottom freezer allows for the refrigerator. I used to think I'd love a side by side fridge, but hated it once I got one because of the narrowness.

Michelle @ Liturgical Time said...

We have a side by side and there is not near enough room in the freezer. :(

Kate Fuller said...

That's a very nice fridge. I'd love to get one with a bottom freezer. Our side by side doesn't have a big enough freezer.

Stacey Roberson said...

Our friends have a bottom-freezer refrigerator, and there's plenty of room for frozen goods. I also love the spillsaver glass shelves. What a great concept!

Donna Rollings said...

I wish my income would let me afford a nicer refrigerator like this one. I have wanted one of these for along time. I love the space it has in it. I have a family of 5 and with my little fridge there is hardly any room. Thank you for the chance to enter in this giveaway and good luck everyone.

fee roberts said...

My Mom needs a new fridge so bad! This looks like an awesome fridge to check out for her. She's very short so she would be able to reach the freezer! Thanks for the review =D

kathy Peterson said...

I am torn between this type and my side by side. I like being able to sort everything in the freezer and seeing it from eye level. Of course I can't fit pizzas or anything large like that. I do have to have an ice maker though. I also not sure about going down to floor level to take something out. I would actually have to try this type out before a purchase.

Anonymous said...

I need a new Refrigerator as mine is about to join others that are no longer working. You review helped me a lot. I love the interior of it. Now I can buy a bunch of frozen Pizza!

Robin Quick said...


I really love this refrigerator! My top freezer fridge isnt working at the moment so I'm using my extra fridge thats a big side by side. It doesnt fit in fridge space in kitchen so it is in our pantry area connected to the kitchen. Before I just used this extra fridge for added needed space at holidays and etc. Anyway, I need a new smaller fridge & I love the one in your review!

jeannie said...

I updated my kitchen several years ago and I have 1 stainless steel piece. I have actually been fridge shopping and this review kinda seals the deal for me. Thanks so much for sharing:)

Angela Cash said...

We are in the process of renovating our kitchen and I hope to replace our appliances. I had never before considered a bottom drawer configuration, but your review is making me rethink that. Thank you for the info!

Jen Boehme said...

This fridge seems easier for my back problems! I like how the shelves fit and the energy star also. I do like this refrigerator!

TERE HIDALGO-RODRIGUEZ said...

I would love to have such a spacious appliance. Thank you for the opportunity you have provided and for the great review.

candigrl_cv said...

i love the fact that its energy star, and how roomy they are and all the drawers to keep my food seperated in which i love ;) what an awesome review.. thanks for sharing @tisonlyme143

TERE HIDALGO-RODRIGUEZ said...

The review given is wonderful and very easy to understand.

Lyndi Malarchuk said...

This is exactly the kind of refrigerator I wanted to buy when we built our house, but the only ones available were double the price.

Jersey Reyes said...

i want it! AER5830VAS

Shelly Johnson said...

I LOVE the bottom freezer!! This would be great for my kids. They could go and get their popcicles, and things like that. I do think it is different to have your milk and juices on the door, but it makes sense when I look at the picture because it gives you more room in the fridge. I love the look of this!!!

Anonymous said...

I've never owned a frig like this, but now i think i would love to have one. I like how the milk and stuff goes on the door which would mean there is more room for other things. And it looks like having a freezer on the bottom would make things easier to find.

cropmom66 said...

I have never owned a refrigerator with a bottom freezer. I always thought it would be difficult to organize the freezer...that you'd have to take everything out to get at what's at the bottom. I love the two baskets. That would make it much easier. I also think I'd love the Adjustable Spillsaver glass shelves. It would help keep my fridge clean! I will definitely check this refrigerator out when I am ready to replace mine....which will probably soon, since my fridge is over 15 years old!

Michelle Proper said...

I've been wanting the bottom freezer for quite some time now and I had had to thank you for the detailed review! Very informative!

Belinda said...

What an awesome fridge! I was just telling mt=y husband that we needed a new fridge. We have a side by side now and with 6 kids, it just doesn't offer the space we need. This would be perfect!

Carol M. said...

yes please!

rookieabh said...

Wow.. this looks very nice! I have never of Amana before now. We are planning on building a house this year so we'll definitely be looking into this brand! Thanks!

billie campbell said...

mr fridge is 18 years old sure could use this new Amana one

Cathy Jarolin said...

Thankyou for this very interesting review..I have never had a bottom freezer fridgerator, but after your review I know I would like it. I am like you in regards to no whistles and bells on appliances. I like things simple always have. Amana is a Brand that I look up too..Excellant quality product..Thankyou again..

I love this! I've never really heard much about Amana!

bkennedy said...

These are really nice refrigerators! Never owned anything stainless steel, so this would be very nice to have!

Danielle Royalegacy said...

I have always loved a bottom refrigerator, and this one looks like it has a great shelving to it. Would love to have this in my kitchen, too.

Kimberly Lazor said...

My parents had a bottom freezer refrigerator when I was growing up, and I always loved it. My refrigerator is twenty years old, and still working just fine, but I would LOVE to win this awesome new Amana refrigerator! Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!

Jennie said...

This looks great! I love that the produce bins are easy to reach, since I use those a ton!

lemonlaurie said...

I really like this option because we have been looking to replace our fridge.

Dawn said...

My daughter just bought her first house soooo if I won I would give this to her as the one in the house is old and is a side by side which I don't care for. This model is perfect! Thanks for the great review and the fabulous giveaway!

Susan said...

This refrigerator would be a godsend, my mom will be coming to live with me soon, and both of us have severe osteoarthritis. Not bending to reach things in the refrigerator would be so much easier on both of our backs. I never realized how heavy a gallon of milk is until I wrecked my back!

Katherine Boroff said...

We need a new one we are using our freezer as a fridge becasue it is going out on us and we are having problems trying to get a new one due to just on income in the household

Val J said...

With a large family like mine, spillsaver shelves and adjustable shelves to fit everything is very important. Plus the reversible swing door is perfect for the pantry room where I keep my refigerator

http://livingatthewhiteheadszoo.blogspot.com/ said...

My mom has the drawer at the bottom and she doesn't like that feature. I think I really would I love the stainless steel and energy savers options!

Laura Lane said...

This sounds like a fabulouse fridge.

Jenette Gardner said...

i am all set but i would love to win this for my daughter and her fiance'. They have one child and one due any day now. And this would be one less major appliance for them to worry about. :)

Tammy Woodall said...

The review of the Amana Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer is very informative. I have a friend who has a stainless steel refrigerator, and she loves hers. I like the fact that the freezer is on the bottom instead of the traditional way (on top). Also, I like the fact that the refrigerator portion would be at eye level. Amana has a great reputation for producing well received products. Thank you for your review.

Ashley Nolan said...

Nice size freezer, was looking for a new one since our last one broke down! I will look more into this freezer thanks!

This would be perfect for stock-piling any good coupon grabs we get for the month:)

I love the look of stainless steele appliances they look so sleek but often very expensive this looks like it be be great for our family as we have 9 in our household! Very roomy!

I'd love to own this. You're review is very helpful.

Abbe Brown said...

Looks awesome, the fridge we have is 12 years old and dying a slow death...

Tamar said...

This looks amazing! and huge.

Terri said...

Love, love, love it! I love that it has a dairy center and the space inside looiks amazing! We don't usually replace our frig unless it breaks! It costs so much money you know, but this review makes me dream of a new frig! :) Amana will definately be one we check into! Thanks! Oh! And your voting at pickett fence and Mommy Blogs are not working! I can get to Mommy Blogs but then I can't find your blog to vote for it and the pickett fence link is broken and just gives an error message! Thought you would want to know!

Rusthawk said...

I love the design of this Amana fridge -- my side by side, while quite large cubic-foot-wise, is clumsy and is unable to accommodate some of my larger items (especially the freezer). The arrangement of the shelving in this one is appealing, as well as the below freezer storage.

Betsy Barnes said...

I love the size of this freezer on the bottom. Mine is so small, side by side just doesn't have any room :)

Rachel said...

Assuming I don't win, I'm most likely going to be buying a fridge soon (unless we can negotiate to have one included with the house we buy). I can't decide what I think with the side-by-side vs. top freezer vs bottom freezer. I had a side-by-side in my last house and my current rental and was able to fit frozen pizza's etc in the freezer. I plan to check into energy use, too. Thanks for the review!

Becky Bryant said...

What an awesome review on an awesome product. I would love to have a frig like this and have always wanted a stainless steel one. Thanks for the feedback.

mommy4five said...

I have never had a stainless steel refridgerator. I was really excited about the possibility of winning after reading your review. I really like the convenience of having the freezer on the bottom. seems to have lots of room for frozen foods. Thanks for the reveiw.

meegan whitford said...

very informative review! thanks! This looks really nice and big!

Kelly A. Tanner said...

I love how spacious this is. We have a stainless steel side by side and the freezer is tiny. The only benefit is that we have ice and water on the door.

Karen Hand said...

Your review has come at a perfect time as we have been comparing refrigerators as well as the different styles. I was thinking along the lines of getting a refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom, but haven't truly decided totally yet. However, I will show your review to my husband so we can discuss the matter further. I am really excided about the stainless steel. Thanks.

Stephanie said...

I definately need a new fridge, I was happy with out last amana, I will have to look at this one!

TreasureToday said...

My refrigerator is getting old and sure could use a great replacement like this one. I love the bottom drawer freezer style. Several of my friends have this style and they love it!

jenrenh said...

I have never owned an Amana product or a bottom freezer refrigerator, but this one looks so roomy and convenient. Some of my favorite features would be the spillsaver glass shelves, gallon door storage, and adjustable door bins. This sounds like a great refrigerator. Thank you for the awesome review!

Alex Pakula said...

This fridge looks so amazing. We just got a new one a couple of years ago, but it's already being weird and dripping on things and making spaceship noises :p

Mary Sunkes said...

I love my frige with the bottom freezer. I think I would like the single top door as opposed to the double doors I currently have. This fridge looks nice and spacious. The freezer bottom definitely has my "it must fit a 20 pound turkey" requirement.

Susan Broughton said...

This is such a nice refrigerator I have wanted to try the bottom freezer for some time now. Our refrigerator is now almost 20 years old and things are starting to make some weird noises. I could really use a new one especially one that I have been wanting like this one,

Tammy Schweitzer said...

It look like a great fridge too get energy star too me me save on energy. Which is great with rising cost of power. Look great spacious for the size also. thanks

Tammy S said...

I love the adjustable door bins. It would make it so much easier to store more items on the door. I have always wanted a refrigerator that had a bottom freezer instead of a top freezer. Plus I love that it is stainless steel.

Jess&James said...

I would love the bottom drawer freezer my freezer is so small and narrow.

CharlieMickey said...

My sister has one of these and it is just great, especially during the summer and the kids can get to the frozen yogurt pops on their own!

Sherry Butcher said...

I have a bottom drawer refrigerator and I'd never have anything else. Problem old one, the thing needs a new seal all the way around. This would be so much better with the energy savers options! Thanks for the chance to win!

Teressa Morris said...

We are looking for a new refrigerator and I love the bottom freezer on this one - especially with the pull-out basket!! Love it!!

Nicole Becker said...

Thank you for the awesome review!! We are remodeling my kitchen and using all stainless steel appliances and this refrigerator would look so good with the rest of the appliances!!

Kelly Nicholson said...

You dont know how much i need this..seriously?..this thing looks great!

chattykat59 said...

Oh, this is such a GREAT giveaway for me! I am in dire NEED of new kitchen appliances. I have owned an Amana fridge in the past (my daughter took it when she bought her house) and it is still in very good shape. I purchased a GE side-by-side 14 years ago, and HATE it. I can't fit ANYTHING in there. I have problems on the holidays, storing leftovers. It won't fit our turkey (I store it at my daughter's)or a sheetcake. It would be SO EXCITING to win this one!! Thank you for the chance!

The review was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for all the great pictures and information.

Dawn Justice said...

I love the way the fridge is set up. It seems like it would be easier to store things in the freezer. Wouldn't have to worry about anything falling out on my toes! And I like how you can see things in the fridge that I actually use more of than the freezer. :)

thank you for the review, I learned several things that made me like the frig MORE than I did at the start of the entry.

I've never had a fridge with a freezer in the bottom. I've have heard so many good things about Amana products. Easy to see the high quality of this product and so many amazing features. The storage space and shelving is just awesome. I've never had a new fridge before but when I do (hopefully someday soon), I am seriously considering Amana.

Jeri Boss said...

i so need a new refridge

Autumn said...

I remember having one of these when I was growing up. I always thought that we were different because we were the only one's I knew that had a bottom freezer. I really liked that refrigerator.

Kelly - Two Kids Cooking and More said...

I'm honestly not a huge fan of stainless steel...I had stainless appliances in a previous home. BUT, I do LOVE the bottom drawer freezer feature, My grandma has a freezer like that and it's perfect for easy access. Finding stuff you use more frequently in the fridge is easier too, because the hight is right. Anyway, when we replace the appliances in our new home, this is the type of fridge I'm looking at (in white)

Vena Silverstein said...

great review since we are trying to decide which appliances to get. my freezer is not working properly so it's time to get another.

I would love to win this totally awesome refrigerator it would def be a great start to my new year! Fingers crossed for this girl!

This looks like a great refrigerator! I'd love to have the freezer on the bottom. It looks like it would be so much easier to keep organized!

Stephanie Momonick said...

I have always wanted a side by side but my second choice would have been with freezer on bottom but now after reading your review I think I would be happier with one like this. I am short so this would be perfect plus we are in need of a new fridge soon. Great review cause I am wanting to win even worse now!

Sue Hull said...

AWESOME Review! I love this fridge! I live in an apt but that's not stopping me from entering this giveaway.If I won this I'd make them take out the one I have and MAKE room for this one.LOL!!

this looks like a very nice fridge. lots of room

clc408 said...

The size is perfect for the space I have. I'm going to have to replace my fridge soon and this one looks like a good choice.

Mary Diehl said...

Your review made me want one so bad. It looks like so much more room than a top freezer. I've never had a bottom freezer and think I'd be like you and open the door thinking I was getting in the freezer, but think with a beautiful fridge/freezer like Amana stainless steel I would adjust real quick to it. thank you for the great review and you did a good review for Amana.

I am in love with this Amana refrigerator! My girlfriend owns one and I'm always looking around inside her fridge becuse the capapcity is amazing. I' love to own one myself! Also the stainless steel goes perfect with my new dream kitchen color scheme. This is perfect for stocking and storing up on freezer items since that's a new "hobby" of mine LOL!!

I love the freezer on the bottom...so much nicer.

I've never owned a stainless steel appliance, but they have always been something I've admired. I know that Amana also makes wonderful products, so I am certain that this is an appliance that I would be proud to have in my home. :)

Denise Vandenbusch Bohman said...

Thanks for the great review. When I was a kid we had Amana appliances. They lasted forever. I really would love to have this brand again.

Helga said...

I would love this fridge, it looks cool and its spacious.

Lisa said...

I would like a new fridge and freezer...I have a side by side, but never seem to have the space I need but it is also an older model and I am sure it is probably not as efficient as it once was.

Amy Peschel said...

We had a chance to use one of these when we rented a condo for the summer last year. They are great!

Great Review and I really enjoyed it I like how you described the shelves and drawers. Thank you. Jerri Davis

Leah CB said...

I always like hearing from a someone about a product. My Mom has a bottom freezer like this. She loves it. We have a side by side, but I've been looking into these. The fridge shelves look pretty roomy. Great review!

clenna said...

I have enjoyed this review. I have a side-by -side Refrigerator and don't like it. This fridge sounds so much better. I could actually find some of my items. The side by side is deep and hard to find anything and the freezer is worse!

TrinityMachael said...

We have a fridge very much like this one. Same fridge, different brand. It is great! We love the bottom freezer.

kathy smith said...

Great review on this refrigerator. I have a side by side one now and the freezer part holds nothing. I love this pull out drawer for the freezer. I love that it is so roomy. I like the stainless steel front very much.

Oh boy do we need a new refrigerator. The one we have came with the house when we bought it six years ago & it was an older model at that time. The one reviewed here is so roomy and gorgeous. The stainless steel really is easy to look at, easy to clean, and goes with all decor.

What a great review! We need a new refrigerator terribly and I was a little hesitant to consider the bottom freezer units becauae I am so used to the standard side by side doors found on most or where the freezer is located above. I think I just found my dream fridge!

me1mason said...

This fridge (with the exception of the stainless steel and all the room in the doors, not to mention a few other delicous features) makes me remember the same type of fridge in my great grandmothers kitchen too many years ago. I currently own a stainless steel side/side and hate the small amount of freezer space and the way the fridge is so long. I longed for a side/side but would never ever purchase one again. It's funny how before you own your own home, you can't wait to have all the latest and greatest gadgets ~ until you actually own them for yourself. I cleaned houses for a couple who owned this style of fridge over freezer and I loved it. It would spectacular in my kitchen.

lisagee1234 said...

(lisa lo) Don't remember if I commented before on this blog..but I seen one of these at a big box home improvement store and I do really like the easy slide of the freezer compartment. I have back lumbar troubles and this won't hurt me to open and close it.

jamie braun said...

looove stainless steel! this fridge looks big too! perfect for my big family

k. smith said...

I came across your review at the perfect time. My current refrigerator is on it's last legs & the time to buy a new one is coming soon. I have always owned side by side refrigerators (made by one of Amanas' competitors) & never even considered buying a Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator nor one manufactured by Amana. Well that was until I read your review on the Amana Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator. I have to say your review was quite impressive, not only did it put Amana at the top of my list but it also put the Amana Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator at the top of the list to boot.

I've never had a refrigerator with the freezer at the bottom either. I don't know if I would like that or not. It would be worth a try though. I've had Amana products also and have always had good luck with them. Thanks for the great review! :-)

Michelle Swank said...

I love these types of freezers. I grew up going to my Nana's house, and she had one, and I thought it was the coolest thing. I was super excited when they came back in style, but haven't gotten a chance to get one yet. Keeping my fingers crossed! :D

i need it soo bad mine little tiny

Stephanie Larison said...

I love this review, and the product! I've never had a fridge that the freezer was on the bottom, not a steel one. This is beautiful, I want it bad! lol

Lanie Kay said...

Love the review. thank you. I have always used side my side fridges and I had never thought of using one with a bottom freezer. After reading your review I am impressed. This fridge sounds pretty amazing to me. I love that the freezer has racks on the bottom to help organize. I just entered it so wish me luck :)

Great review!I would love to have a bottom freezer.Don't know if you know it or not but Amana used to sell their freezers door-to-door...I know and remember because my Mom did this in the late 50's.Amana has always been quality.

Tammy Allgood-Hemmerling said...

Thanks for the review! I think we'll be looking for new appliances this spring and this helps me greatly to make this tough decision!

randy fulgham said...

YOU HAVE A NICE REVIEW AND THIS AMANA FRIDGE IS TOP OF THE LINE....A NEW APPLIANCE LIKE THIS IS ALWAYS NICE.

sunflowerally22 said...

What a great honest,real review! I have been wondering how much space these actually have in them. they seem awfully small, but after your review i see that they are actually quite spacious! i have a old side by side and this one will definetly be a looker when we get our new one!

Jessica Fortner said...

I love the look of stainless steel appliances. This one looks especially nice and roomy. I like the bottom freezer better than a side-by-side too.

tstasko said...

I've never had a freezer on bottom style but I think I would like it as I like the idea of baskets in the freezer. Seems like it would be easier to find things in the fridge rather than when it is on top

tammy ramey said...

thank you for the great review. i have been looking for a fridge/freezer for awhile but couldn't decide, i will be checking out the Amana department this weekend.

Teri said...

A bottom freezer would be so nice - I can't tell you how many times I've opened our top freezer and almost had my toes smashed by some falling frozen veggies! Thanks for the review.

cdmtx said...

Thanks for your review and my dream of owning an amazing Fridge/Freezer like the Amana Stainless Steel Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator :)

Tayler Parsons said...

This review helped a lot in deciding upon an appliance for the home I will be moving into soon. The fridge in the home is falling apart and a sleek modern fridge like this would be the perfect replacement. And I love the bottom freezer, I think it will make organizing way more efficient. Great review!

conniedoorknob said...

this is a great review ive always wanted one like this it seems like every time i go to get something out of the freezer something or more like somethings falls out on me i dont wear shoes in the house so most of the times my feet get hit with it i would love to win this and so would my feet!!

evie said...

i need a new refrigerator with a ice maker that works. i ike the stainless steel, although i have a black one now to go w/ my kitchen. guess i would have to replace the dishwasher as well since it it black too. i like the idea of the bottom freezer, however, my 4 legged girls would not be able to look inside the fridge anymore when i open the door.

Jeri Boss said...

i so need a new refrigerator

denise macina said...

Thanks for giving someone a chance to get a wonderful frig its a great thing to do its a very pretty and great thanks again :).... Denise..Rivera

Cathy Bane said...

I love that with the freezer being a drawer, you're less likely to break a toe!

Wendy c g said...

I love the bottom freezer! I need a new frig desperately and this is gorgeous - thanks for the great giveaway!

Alex Liz R. said...

This refrigerator is awesome! We are going to be needing a new one soon and I have had my eye on bottom freezers.

Cuevas77 said...

I would love to win this freezer and try it out. I always am on budget and go with the bare minimum when making purchases so this would be a little luxury. Thanks for the opportunity.

craftvee said...

I love this fridge! I have a side by side and I would love one with the freezer drawer at the bottom! I love stainless steel too!

Jennifer Seigler said...

I love this! My MIL has a bottom freezer like this and I love hers.

Jennifer said...

Both my stepmom and my mil have bottom-freezer fridges and I want one, too!! Hate when I open the top freezer a bit too fast and something frozen lands on my toe ... ouch!

sara ford said...

I have wanted one for so long! My friend has one and loves it. I would love that all the things you use most are right there in eye view so cool. thank you for this review

francis485 said...

great review, i so want this fridge, i have a side by side and i cant fit anything into it, i have to usually break things downn to size to fit right. thanks for the great post

Pam Halligan said...

I bought an Amana freezer on the bottom fridge over eight years ago - and it's still going strong. My next refrigerator will be an Amana. I have some friends - my sister included - in need of a new refrigerator. I've told them, Amana. Thanks for the review.

Sandy McFadden said...

I love bottom freezers and I love Amana being a rent that appliances are provided in some homes you are stuck with what they make available to you if not permitted to use your own. I would so love to get more Amana Applicances

somalyman said...

Currently, I have a top freezer/fridge but I think it is too small. To my opinion, it looks like bottom freezers have more space. I have always wanted a bottom freezer because not only does it look like it gives more room, but also because I think it looks better. The stainless steel appliance also looks nice. The only thing that bothers me about stainless steel is the handprints that gets on there.

ann said...

I always thought I wouldnt like a bottom freezer but my son has one and I really like it. I recently bought a side by side. Never had a stainless steel frig tho. This one seems to have alot more space then other refrigerators.

HappyEnchilada said...

My fridge is on life support so I'm on the hunt for a new one. I always wonder if the bottom freezers have any problems with the vents and compressor being underneath...where is it on the Amana? I'd love to find a larger storage fridge for my 3 kids who ha1ve black holes for stomachs. Thanks for the review

Danielle Adkins said...

Wow!! A fridge that you can actually put plates and leftovers in. We are currently using two fridges in our kitchen- We need both to make it work. The main fridge is a side by side- you can barely put a dinner plate on the shelf, plus the fridge randomly spits ice cubes at you and makes strange noises at night. Our 2nd fridge pools up water in the bottom and every other day you have to put towels down to clean it up. They both have major temp fluctuations. It would sure be nice to have the extra space by going down to one fridge, And one fridge that does what both of mine do together ( besides the falling apart).. :)

Debra Welle said...

I LOVE the freezer on the bottom - especially the pull out drawers!! We could REALLY use one of these! Right now, we have a half and half refrigerator freezer - and the freezer door hits the wall. This makes it difficult for us to store my FAVORITE ice cream treat (Dairy queen cakes) - so we only buy them in the winter when we can store them in the garage :). I can only DREAM of having an ice cream cake in the summer - it would be AMAZING!! lol

Paula V said...

Wow, I'd love the chance to review this fridge as long as I didn't have to give it back. Ha! My m-i-l has one and ever since she got one last year, we have been drooling over it. I think it would take some getting use to as you said but my husband says, it's the most natural fridge to have the freezer on the bottom. I think the space is more effectively used too.

Tracy J said...

I've always wanted a bottom freezer refrigerator,my sister in law has one and I love how it is set up, we are looking to buy a new fridge with our income tax,because the fridge that came with the house is quite old and not very energy efficient. Your review helped me to decide that a fridge like this is something that I want. Thank you

Anonymous said...

I need a new refrigerator really bad and would love one like this. I have never had one like this one before.

jenzen69 said...

This is very nice. I have the oldest fridge and the magnetic strip is not working right so half the time my refrigerator door pops back open

Wendy Mastin said...

I have a side by side and have been looking at the bottom freezer refrigerators. I like that it has the 2 wire baskets to be able to organize things rather than just piling everything on top of each other.

Kathy said...

I'm short and love the idea of a bottom freezer, I can't justify buying a new one though

agnes hatfield christiansen said...

Love to win this refrigerator with the bottom freezer, what a great ideA!

Mary said...

I would love to switch out all my appliances to stainless. I love how they look and they go with any other color choices you choose.

Theresa said...

I have always been interested in a bottom drawer freezer but was afraid that it would be hard to find anything! I have my side by side freezer filled to the top and I can never find anything hiding behind on those small shelves. Reading your review makes me feel much better about it now. I had no idea that the basket slides around!!

Chelesa sims said...

I love the stainless steel look with the drawers at the bottom. Looks really nice in your house

Donna George said...

I've always wanted a freezer on bottom fridge. I also need a new one since mine is so energy ineffecient. I do love the stainless steel look too.

Holly Thomas said...

It is so beautiful, I have always wanted a bottom freezer!!

Laurie Nykaza said...

It looks like it has so much room in it. I have never had stainless steel before but I think it looks really nice. i like the bottom baskets in the freezer to looks like you could put a lot of frozen food in there

Heather Martin said...

I grew up w/ type of frige and never really got used to the others. I always felt like you could get more into it. Plus, I wasn't wacking myself in the head.

celina k said...

I love the adjustable door shelves, such a big deal to me! And the washable glass shelves inside the fridge are fantastic. I actually really like bottom freezer units, they just seem to fit more in them, and it seems more easily organized. Haven't had any experience withb this brand though, thank you for the review!

trishden said...

I've been admiring the bottom freezer, it just looks like it is so much roomier. I might miss having that outside water ice despenser, but the fact that Amana makes things simple there is less to break down. Thanks for the review and enjoy your new appliance.

hargygirl said...

When I was younger, my paternal grandparents had a fridge with the freezer on the bottom. It's the only one I had ever seen until they started coming out with them again. I love the fact that the freezer is on the bottom and has those pull out shelves so you can see everything and keep it organized. My freezer now (yes it's on top of the fridge) is awful, crammed full of stuff and it's a major effort to just look for what you want to have for supper. Thanks so much for this review. I would LOVE to have one of these. Especially now that my refrigerator is making strange noises and not cooling properly. :)

ratchet14 said...

I would love to own this fridge! It would be such an improvement to our old 80's style one that we have that has no room and is on it's last leg. I think the space this one has as well as the crisper etc will really help my family and I eat better since we will have food that won't spoil as fast as it does now in the one we have and also we will have money to buy more healthy foods if we can save money on buying a new one and the cost of running it too.

Terri Callaway said...

we are buying a fridge from Rent a Center which is the biggest mistake I ever made so if I get this one I am telling them to come get theirs. They are awful!

Lisa Brown said...

Love the size and looks of it. I really appreciate having the freezer on the bottom. I could never understand why the freezer was on top of the unit for decades. So much hunching down to see what was in the refrigerator. I would love a new unit myself :)

Jane Ritz said...

This sounds like a totally awesome frig. Mine is about 13 yrs old. It's a plain side by side. The freezer side is too narrow. Alot of things don't fit.

Autumn said...

Oh my gosh, this refrigerator is great! I'm so glad you reviewed it, as I have looked at them at the appliance store before, but never really got a good feel as to how it would work in real life. The adjustable shelves would be AMAZING to have, I struggle with my outdated fridge so much! It is a small refrigerator too, which I love, because I have a limited amount of space! It's hard to find a fridge with that many features in a small size. Thanks again for the review!

bonnie english said...

i would love a new fridge and could really use.thanks for chance good luck to everyone

Molli Vandehey said...

thank you so much. its so intimdating making large puirchases because its hard to find honest and easy to understand reviews... especially practical stuff from a mama, and not technical stuff... thanks!!!

Ruth Reynolds said...

This fridge looks great we rent and the fridge is entirely to small for me and my couponing purchases. I love the stainless steel and the bottom freezer.

Krista Grandstaff said...

My parents just redid their kitchen 2 years ago, and have a massive fridge with ice and water, and the freezer on the bottom.. My Mom loves when all of the grandkids are there because it has an alarm that beeps when the door is open longer than 20 seconds...so she knows when my Dad is sneaking snacks, or grandkids are digging for popsicles :)

Terri said...

Your stainless steel refrigerator looks beautiful and has such great features! I would love to have it in the larger size (21.9 cu. ft.). The pull-out freezer looks like it holds a lot more than my present fridge with a top freezer. Love the "clear" crisper drawers over my gray ones (I can't see what is in mine and often veggies & fruits go bad because I can't see them & forget them).
