      Q:Is there a way to attach handles on these doors? I didn't see a place to grip the door to open it.
      by|Mar 18, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  That is a great question about the doors of the fridge, Jessica. No, the fridge has no way to attach a handle since they are designed to have that flushed look. The fridge has recessed door handles under the two main fridge doors and on top of the freezer doors. Please scroll through the picture on the left-hand side of the official product page for more details. https://www.samsung.com/us/home-appliances/refrigerators/specialty-and-kimchi/17-3-cu-ft-smart-kimchi-specialty-4-door-french-door-refrigerator-in-platinum-bronze-rq48t9432t1-aa/?redir=RQ48T9432T1 Have a great day. ^Charles

          I love it!
          It’s great! I don’t like that the shelves can not be adjusted to fit things like a gallon of milk. But I improvised and use different containers. Produce stays fresh way longer. I like the option of two freezer drawers or a fridge and freezer drawer. A gallon would fit upright in the middle drawer though if you set it to fridge. The containers are great but I don’t use them in the fridge except one for ice nuggets I buy.

            I bought this refrigerator to store kimchi. I put it in the living room, but the design is pretty, so it goes well with other furniture. I also like the function. I like both the design and the function.
              Nice modern refrigerator
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We really like our Samsung Kimchi refrigerator exterior, which is Platinum bronze. It gives a nice modern look. We like the two lower compartments which can be converted to a freezer or a cooler. We also like the bins which come with the refrigerator; these help keep our meat fresh. The power freeze feature is really nice. It allows us to quickly freeze food to keep it fresh. The fingerprint resistance surface works. Fridge always looks so clean and nice. One drawback is the 'stay fresh crisper' drawers. It's a little inconvenient to pull out the drawer and then push back the top section to open. Other than that, the refrigerator is very nice.
                Awesome fridge
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the kimchi refrigerator. The platinum bronze fridge looks modern and blends well into my kitchen's decor. It's easy to switch the bottom two compartments from refrigerator to freezer. I love the many bins that come with refrigerator. I use the bins to store meat, kimchi, and kitchen tools and accessories. I also like the bright interior LED lighting inside the fridge. It's not too bright that it will hurt your eyes. 2-min door alarm is useful. It reminds me to shut fridge door when I accidentally leave it open. The only downside is I wish the side compartment is bigger so I can put 1 gallon milk in it.
                  Beautiful Design
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] By looking at the fridge, only thin I can say would be "Beautiful" Inside design is also great as it is designed for the special food items which requires different temperature variations. The test of meat is much better & tender, vegetables are lasting very long and fresh. Lots of removable plastic containers comes with this. So many in different sizes, hardly utilize those all. Great quality, expected from Samsung. Very happy with my purchase
                    WOW for the Design and functions
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Finally, a long-waited Samsung Refrigerator came in today. My model is exotic 17.3 cu. ft. Smart Kimchi & Specialty 4-Door French Door Refrigerator RQ48T94B277/AA – White-Navy Glass, as I understand that it provides more precise temp control on three different compartments. It is just gorgeous by looking at glossy white and dark blue tones—all the way delicate touches. There are no door handles, yes, those are underneath French doors, and each door has a secure overhang lock. Design: No doubt, it is simply gorgeous! , Installation: Quick and easy, Temperature settings and control: all the controls are on the top front section of the refrigerator. Set and stabilized the temperature within 2 hours, great., Service: It comes with 10yr warranty for the invertor, great for the decade long. Overall, it is one of the most beautiful refrigerators, period. With the high-end craftmanship in design and actual usages, lots of details can be found and experienced. Although the price is upper sides, it does justify the premium quality & distinctive design concepts. WOW for the Design, WOW for its functions & usages, and WOW for the service.
                      Great Performance
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It has great performance. I can have fresh vegetable. I love it.

                        A great fridge for more than kimchi!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We choose this fridge because of the aesthetic and also because of the advanced levels of temperature control. When this refrigerator arrived we were blown away. Everything about the appearance of the fridge is premium. The front colored plates are flawless. The inside is the brightest white imaginable. I had been worried because this fridge is technically a little smaller in terms of storage space than our previous refrigerator. But we would never notice because of how much usable space is packed into this fridge. We find our self with extra fridge space even after a grocery run. This was our first venture into the drawer style freezers. It was not nearly as big of a deal as i thought it would be. The drawers are very easy to organize. The temperature control options are great but there was a bit of a learning curve. There are some differences between the way the app presents things and the way the on fridge controls do but we have settings now that work for our needs. We use the kimchi containers to help organize the fridge and we are very happy with that so far. Everyome that comes over is blown away at how nice this fridge looks. We are very happy with our new refrigerator!

                        Wow, Your new fridge looks amazing! Thank you for your review. ^Pat
                          Best fridge I've ever owned!
                          This refrigerator is FANTASTIC! It's so versatile. I don't make kimchi, yet, but the fact that I can control the drawers' temperatures has been far more useful than I'd ever expected. My fresh food stays fresh so much longer than in any refrigerator I've ever owned. I love this fridge.
                            Spacious and amazing Kimchi Fridge
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the most versatile refrigerator and freezer I have ever had in my life. We are using the two bottom drawers as freezer and the top part as a refrigerator. Kimchi tastes so good and produces stay fresh.
