Did I get you with the post title? We did fall in love...with this refrigerator. Our old fridge in the basement conked out a couple of days ago. We wondered...could we get by with just the one in our kitchen? Then we started to give it some real thought...watermelon, pop, beer, party trays, extras that we buy on sale...the decision was easy...we needed one in the basement. I walked into the appliance store, thinking that we were going to look for a small one for extra groceries. Nothing fancy...just a basic refrigerator. Joe, on the other hand, had something else in mind. He went right to the deluxe models. We have both hated our refrigerator in the kitchen ever since we bought it 5 yrs. ago. It's a side by side and just so difficult to find anything in there. We have a half wall on one side of it, so you really have to wedge yourself in to put things away and to clean it. With this in mind, he felt that we should buy the refrigerator of our dreams for the kitchen and put that "pain in the neck" fridge downstairs. After telling me his idea, I couldn't have been happier. I have had freezer on the bottom refrigerators before. Things go in the tidy drawer and don't fall out, when you open the door. I have always loved this kind. When we bought the one 5 yrs ago...the appliance companies weren't making very many of these. So, we found the model we wanted. Can you see under the crispers...a deli drawer...just roll out this wide drawer and select cold cuts and cheeses. Oh, my! There goes the healthy way of eating. It's coming on Friday. We can't wait!
