Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of space I bought the Whirlpool Sidekicks. They are a separate fridge and freezer. They come together with a trim package. I love them. Lots of room in both. You can actually find things you are looking for. I would recommend them to anyone. January 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Freezer Got this freezer on clearance, as it was a floor model. This freezer held all 278 pounds of the elk I harvested this year...and then some!! Very happy with this purchase and would recommend this freezer to any one hard-core enough to attempt to fill it up! October 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Meets a very important need. The Whirlpool sidekick is the second set I have purchased. When we remodeled our kitchen in 2002 we found the Sidekicks and they were the perfect solution for our refrigerator/freezer needs. We have a big family and the capacity along with the open shelves accommodated large items very well. When positioned side by side they are a very attractive unit. It was the first time that I have ever received compliments on appliances. December 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Features! I purchased a Whirlpool upright stainless steel freezer recently. I wish I would have done this years earlier. The 4 interior shelves & 2 large baskets helps me keep food items organized. Lots of additional storage in the 6 adjustable bins on door. Very happy with this purchase. November 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!! Bought this a month and am very happy so far. The one it replaced was a manual defrost and this is great without the ice build up. Also love the stainless steel!!! November 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Idea See review for fridge. The freezer was bought to match the new fridge even though the existing freezer was still operational. Suggestions for improvements and other criticisms are the same. I like the sidekicks design. November 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by lots of room but had repaired already Bought this 15 months ago and had to have timer replaced already since it was not defrosting. Of course it off warranty. Ice maker also freezes up from time to time and need to be manually cracked to release ice November 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy access/ tight door/ temperature stablizes/nice finish e Needed a companion freezer that would look well in the kitchen - an after thought after new kitchen was installed the sleek lines are easy to work with and can be compatible to other models of stainless other than whirlpool November 1, 2014
