We had a pretty basic fridge when we moved into our town house 6 years ago. Some shelves, 2 crisper drawers, and basic shelves on the door. One open freezer at the top (no shelves except for the ones on the door). Our new Frigidaire Gallery® Custom-Flex™ Refrigerator has several different features that we are really excited about and I wanted to share those with you today!
The first thing is the Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel. Ken and I have talked before about how we want to have stainless steel appliances someday when we graduate from renting, to a home where we'll have to provide our own appliances. So we were excited about this fridge being the first in our collection (unless you count my mixer). I hear, however, that regular stainless steel is not fun in the fingerprint department and we certainly have potential for a lot of those! Lucky for us, this fridge has a special protective coating that resists fingerprints and smudges so that it’s easy to clean- that's my kind of fridge! So, we've gone from regular white to stainless steel, and the bonus with this smudge-proof stainless steel is that it's still magnetic, so I can still use my calendar ;)
Next up is the Store-More™ Drawer. I love this drawer for storing cheese (because we like to stock up on it when it's on sale) and sandwich meats. It's a very wide drawer and perfect for those low-profile items that you need to store but would prefer not to put on your shelves with more height available!
Before this fridge, we were limited to very basic shelves & if something was too tall to fit (like a pop bottle), we had to store it on its side and hope that it wouldn't leak! My definite favourite feature of this new fridge is the Store-More™ Slide-Under Flip-Up Shelf. It is so cool! It can be used 3 ways:
1. Full Shelf
2. Half Shelf (allowing room for taller items on the shelf below- like that bottle of sparkling grape juice in the photo below)
3. Full Height: It can flip up and leave a full shelf below it with tons of height!
See that bright white rectangular shape in the top, left corner of the photo above? That's the Superior LED Lighting. It keeps the fridge & freezer bright (making it easy to find food) but uses less energy.
Right beside that bright rectangle, you can see the Space-Saving Ready-Select® Side Controls. They're super easy to reach (way better than having them at the back, hidden behind food) and include a door ajar alarm (which I experienced while taking photos for this post.. haha :) I'm glad it has that because my kids are known to not quite close the fridge sometimes! :)
So those are some of the awesome features, beyond the Custom-Flex Door with Sliding Bins and Accessories (my other favourite feature!) which I already touched on in a previous post about fridge organization.
I'm very excited to be one of Frigidaire's #TestDriveMoms because we are having a lot of fun with this fridge!
