WOW- this is the most attractive appliance, the front is stainless steel however the sides are not, they are painted grey (the same shade &color as stainless) I am pleased with the look! The inside is huge, plenty of shelf space & compartments in the door(well it should be for 17.7 cu. ft. of space). The unit is very quiet(not sure why so many reviews say it is noisy). Must say the salesperson was very helpful with our purchase(Maggie)!

We are really happy with the capacity of this refrigerator! We can put 3-4 pots of left-over food and sauces in it easily. This is very important to us because we have an older kitchen that doesn't fit deep and wide refrigerators. We bought a counter height/depth freezer for our meat and vegetables. This refrigerator looks sleek, and is very quite. I'm only disappointed that after nearly two years, the thermostat broke down and it is slightly freezing our milk and other liquids. Otherwise, when the refrigerator is working properly, it maintains our food at an impressive even temperature from top to bottom. Enjoy!

I bought the whirlpool sidekicks all refrigerator and all-freezer pair in August of 2008. Since i'm on my third fridge which is now broken too. I will be buying my forth fridge since 2008. It just stops cooling after about two years (coolant leak which is not fixable). Same with all of them. The freezer has been great, however you have to keep getting the same fridge if you want it to match the freezer. Now I'm going to bite the bullet and switch brands and buy a new fridge and freezer. I will never buy whirlpool again.

This review is only for installation and aesthetics. We have yet to use it as it is still cooling. We did have a professional appliance installation company install these units with the trim kit. Overall it did not seem like too hard a job to put together the trim set and slide the fridge and freezer into place. However, there was a bit of tweaking to get two separate boxes (the fridge & freezer) and trim kit to all look as one unit. Total time of install start to finish was close to two hours. Here are the various tweaks they had to make while installing: 1. Needed to make their own levelers as the units did not have their own. (so, initially the units looked like they were leaning back) 2. Lots of adjusting on doors to make sure they were even with one another and still level. Sort of a standard with any fridge install but a little tricker being two different units. 3. The center trim kit that goes between the units was keeping the fridge from closing completely - need to assure spacing is accurate between both units from top to bottom. The main thing the installer left me with was that these are two separate units and only connected by a small plate at the top. So, it is possible that we may experience some movement when opening and closing the doors. It would seem that the design should be updated so that there is a bracket in the middle that connects both units.This way you would have a connection that runs the height of the unit keeping an even gap, creating more connection than just the small plate at the top, and would also provide a place to attach the center trim. Overall, it looks great and has met our expectations for the overall look in our kitchen. If you bought or are considering purchasing these items it is because you don't or can't spend 10k+ on a big sub-zero - I don't blame you. If they operate as good as they look, we will be very excited. I do have a small level of concern regarding the negative operational reviews but I'll see what happens with our units. Our cabinets were custom built for these units so it is not an easy change if these go belly up...but lets think positive. Once, my units get to temp and we can start using I will leave an operational review.

I bought a year ago - I like that it's spacious and fulfills the need of my huge family but just after 14 months I have had to service it where it's compressor stopped working and the gas leaked, so I'd advise to buy an extended warranty with it.

Great product for 18 months then the sealed compressor fails and the warranty is only 12 months. Repairmen cannot fix a sealed compressor so unless you purchase and extended warranty, you are out of luck. Owned both the freezer and refrigerator sidekick. First the frig went out after 18 months, so bought a new one since the opening in the kitchen was sized for two sidekicks. Then 6 months later, the freezer went out. Thought about moving new frig to the garage but instead purchased another freezer since would have to order new cabinets. Twelve months later, the frig went out again. So went out and bought a Kitchenaid french door and new cabinets to fill in the hole. The freezer is in the garage still working for the time being and the frig is taking up room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NoMoreWhirlpool DO NOT BUY!!
If I could give "no stars", I would. Our unit just died after only a couple years of use. After doing an internet search, turns out there are numerous complaints about this unit with regard to the compressor or the freon leaking. And with it's sealed system, it can't be repaired. Google and do research before buying this lemon!!!
