Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THE BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 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)! March 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The Worst Refrigerator and Freezer Combo Ever Built 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. May 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good while it lasted! I love my side kicks we designed our kitchen seven years ago to fit this unit. Now its sitting at room temp and looking at having to repair it. I was disappointing on it not lasting longer and if we decide to go with different units it will require some remodeling.. bummer! June 29, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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!!! September 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sidekicks is a Good idea The choice was dictated by the existing 10 yr old WOODS (Kenmore) refrigerator unit which started to leak, but there were no parts available. Our Kitchen cabinets were designed to accommodate only the sidekick design. The new units work well but there is no easy way to level and align the units once there are in place. There should be a way to adjust the rear from the front. Also they are a little noisier than the previous unit. The look has been improved by the stainless steel handles. Hopefully they can be serviced without moving them. November 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Best! I had to purchase a new refrigerator when my old one was too expensive to repair. I am a caterer and decided I needed a full refrigerator for my kitchen. The sidekick I bought has been the best decision I have made since starting my business. December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE my All Refrigerator & Freezer!!!! Purchased the All Refrigerator & Freezer for our new home, Best purchase we have made. Love the clean look, and it allows plenty of room for all the food I need to feed my family of 5. Always receiving compliments!!! December 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great feature with no freezer! Much needed fridge space for office kitchen. We had a smaller fridge, always overfilled with a poorly utilized freezer. This 18 cu ft fridge only was the answe to our issues. November 10, 2014
