19.6 cu ft French Door Refrigerator with Strongbox™ Door Bins
Big features packed into a slim design
Love this fridge. Not only does it look great in my built in 30" opening, but it functions perfectly. Thanks to the well thought out organization and the build in air circulation there is no more "dark corners" of the fridge where some parts of the fridge are colder than others (not to mention unreachable). And the best part I like about the fridge is how quiet it runs and energy efficient it is - that my electrical bill went down $25 a month just by replacing my fridge.

I think the ice maker takes up a bit of room but wanted a bigger capacity ice maker as we use a lot of ice. So you take some good with the bad. Love the pull out drawer for freezer.

nice features,runs quiet, plastic shelves and drawers could be a little thicker for longevity.
Great Frig. Wife loves it. Went from maytag top freezer 18.6 cu.ft. to this model. Unbelievable amount of room for such a small increase in cu.ft. Always have been a Maytag product owner, Hope after ownership changeover that Quality and longevity will remain as good. We'll see. So Far So Good.

Sometimes you wonder
Sometimes you wonder what goes through peoples heads. They package and design a nice refrigerator and then leave out a 50 cent part to connect your copper water tube to the fridge. Why would you leave out a cheap ferrule and nut to connect your tube to the fridge. Its really inconvenient for someone like me who lives 30 miles from the store to have to drive back and forth for a part that should have been included with the package. CHEAP, CHEAP AND CHEAP. Other than that I am happy with the purchase so far. Oh and if you do happen to buy one get the ferrule and nut for your water line connection while you are at the store and make sure it fits also.

The refrigerator has the Maytag brand behind it
This Maytag French Door refrigerator has all the things needed to meet my family's needs. It has a spacious upper portion with the convience of the french door similar to my prior side by side. The bottom has the same cubic feet as my prior side by side but the configuration is different. I needed a specific size to fit in my design space and Maytag was able to provide that model. What else can you say about any Maytag appliance besides that the Maytag product group stand behind their product and it is built to last.

Best small refrigerator in its class
For smaller cramped apartments and houses with limited space. Refrigerator has features that are comparable to the bigger ones. One of the mid shelves breaks away into a half shelf when you have those tall irregular items. Gallon milk container fits nicely in the door pocket. Pull out drawers operate smoothly. Filtered water for ice cubes and fresh flow filter for produce helps to keep veggies crisper longer. Quieter than our to year old refrigerator. LED lighting and smooth white finish was our choice.

RUNS WELL - NICE FEATURES - EXCELLENT ICE MAKER – REASONABLE PRICE – AND LOOKS GREAT!

Nice design for the size, but spendy.
Since I only had limited space for this unit, I had to go with a small size that was not "common." I was told that this is why I had to pay more for the unit than for similar designs in a larger size. I found this to be true in all brands, not just Maytag. Paying more for less did not make me happy.
The unit appears to be well-built. I was disappointed to find out the sides of the unit were not stainless...they are a painted metal in a darker color that detracts from the appearance. (I ordered online since I couldn't find one in a store.) Since the location shows one side, it's not as attractive as it could be. Besides, paying the higher cost and not getting a full stainless cover? Not good.
I do like the roomy interior and the ability to fold up the shelf and move the door containers around. It holds a lot of stuff for the space! The three drawers are great and also roomy. Two issues that could be improved...there is no place to put a butter dish and the panel at the top showing the temp settings gets in the way of items on the upper shelves on the door. Other than that, the interior is very nice.
The freezer drawer is also roomy and opens and closes very smoothly. I like the fact the ice unit does not make too much at any time and doesn't overflow in the food storage area.
For the most part, it runs quietly. I have noticed an increase in a particular noise as it cycles. Not sure what it is, but as long as it doesn't get any louder, it shouldn't be an issue.
So, some pros and some cons, but overall a nice unit that I have enjoyed having in my home!
Thanks for inquiring...

This product has great visuals
The thing we like most is everything can be seen when the doors open.

The quality and functionality of this refrigerator is by far the best I have experienced.
The only reason I am unable to give 5:stars overall is it is a bit too small for our family size, however we increased members after we purchased the product. It is a fantastic refrigerator overall though.

Great for smaller areas.
Was very limited on choices due to the smaller unit size. This offers the nice fold away shelf for larger items. Would have liked both doors to be able to store a gallon of milk or juice bottles however. The handles show every smudge too so daily cleaning is required.
December 30, 2013
The drawers are designed for one door models. You have to open both french doors to use bottom drawers.

Some questions refer to range I bought so not answered
I don't like the inside design. There really isn't room for milk, ketchup anything tall unless you push shelf back then you lose shelf space. Shelf in door aren't wide enough. I would return if I could

Love this refridgerator, would have given five stars if the freezer would have held as much as my old 19 cubic footer did. I had to do some fancy packing to get in the stuff that was in my old freezer. I ended up having to leave some things out that didn't fit, even after rearranging everthing several times.
The refridgerator is excellent with great storage and plenty of room. Overall, I'm very satisfied.

Size and features well worth the splurge in price!
I'm fortunate that this 19.6 cu. ft. refrigerator was able to fit into the space that my old Maytag 18.1 cu. ft. filled, and the French doors give a real contemporary look. The Strongbins are well made so I don't hesitate putting heavy items in them. About a week after the refrigerator was installed, I noticed that one bin kept popping out, and sometimes the magnetic strip on the door didn't catch. I decided to have the technician come, and he said that the refrigerator and surrounding cabinets "settle," and it's not unusual that adjustments have to be made shortly after installation, especially in older homes. Now everything works perfectly.

This refrig was the only size in this style I could find and was thrilled that Maytag had it!
I really am enjoying this product --
It fits perfect -- looks good -- and I get lots of compliments!

I really love my new refrigerator - love the bottom freezer - had not had one for many years, and now have the most convenient refrigerator imaginable
Having a new refrigerator delivered the Saturday before Thanksgiving was both a blessing and a challenge. The challenge was the different configuration from a standard side-by-side, but it did not take long to realize everything had a place. I worried a little about not having the water and ice on the door but surprisingly, I don't miss that feature at all. I particularly chose the "freezer on the bottom" as I had one many years ago, found it very convenient and wanted one again. Bottom line, I am very pleased and recommend anyone wanting a change of pace to try this style and experience a "Maytag" top quality refrigerator/freezer.

This product has great quality,features are good, runs quitely.
Very happy with this product and would recommend it highly.
It looks good, runs quitely, saves energy, and overall it is great.
Only thing is we had to get used to differnt design of the inside and what fits where. Seems to not fit as much as old one but probably just need to adjust to the different disign. Thanks

The door design is very poor. The left door doesn't always shut so one really has to watch for it.
The top shelf is a little short for milk and juice bottles

This refrigerator is perfect for my kitchen.
I live in a house with a small kitchen and was looking for a refrigerator that would serve my refrigeration needs and fit into my small but functional kitchen. The double doors give me more space. The freezer is great, the access on the bottom is functional and accessible. I love my new appliance.

I love my new frig
I didn't think my old refrigerator could be replaced, but this new Maytag has done just that. I love the French doors and the freezer's location. Opening the French doors allows me to see everything in the frig. The pull out shelf is also nice as it gives some versatility in using the space. I feel like my food is well displayed. Having the freezer on the bottom never appealed to me until now. It makes so much sense as I am in the freezer less often than in the frig and the cold air stays lower, making the frig more economical to operate.

Really like the product but find their shelving very problmatical.
Its very quiet, has good capacity and really like the strong shelves in the doors. I do not like the configuration on the main shelves. Believe the refrigerator would have been better off if the shel;ves did not run the full width of the insides but instead were split in the middle which would allow gor better adjustments for placement of food.
By the way I think it is ridiculous that I could not use the nickname Rog because it was too short and you also refused Roger because someone else used it...My name is Roger...

great capacity for size
had to replace a conventional 20cu ft refrigerator with no way to expand the area (width, height or depth).
This model fit perfectly and seems to have more capacity than the older freezer on top unit.
Only negatives are that the finish scratches easer than I thought it would (first SS appliance) and the fruit/vegetable drawers sometimes come off the track.

This product fit perfectly!
Ten years ago we remodeled our small kitchen and only had room for a small under-the counter frige...our full-sized frige was in the basement. With a small remodel this year we were able to accommodate a full frige and this Maytag fit perfectly at the right price! It is heaven not to have to run up and down the stairs when preparing meals or to get ice...even if my husband does say it's what kept my legs in such good shape all these years! Our new Maytag has definitely made my life easier!

You can't beat Maytag for performance
Style, Capacity, performance, energy efficient. I have had several Maytag appliances over the years, and never once had to have a repairman for any reason. I had a washer and dryer for over 15 years and sold them with the house when I moved. They were still running like brand new. Purchased a different brand in my new house and sold them 5 years later for a set of new Maytags. The refrigerator is perfect whether your family is big or small. More room than anticipated for the dimensions.

Good Fridge, Some Flaws
I loved upgrading to this stainless appliance, but was disappointed with a few minor design features. I do not like that the left door must close first for the fridge to seal. This is picky I know, but is annoying if you are grabbing something from the left side. I thought the availability of the "half" shelf would be very convenient, but things just end up lost under the upper shelf, but behind full size items like jugs of milk. On the positive side, our lettuce has stayed fresh long past the sell by date with this crisper and I LOVE the freezer on bottom. The sliding shelf in the freezer helps things stay organized and accessible. Overall, good fridge and I would purchase it again.

Very quiet, great space
I LOVE my new refrigerator! I couldn't imagine how it would fit in my "normal" space in my kitchen but it does. I also have lower electricity bills since having my new fridge. I love the drawers for veggies and fruit and the large bottom drawer for anything. The door shelves are moveable and can fit any item you may have regardless of its size. Also, the bottom freezer is a dream and so easy to get into. Again, I LOVE my new Maytag stainless steel refrigerator :-).
January 6, 2014
I love it!! Can't wait to get the matching dishwasher :)
Would buy it again, love the Maytag brand!! My other Maytag appliances, which are 15 years old, are still running. Made in the USA was a huge factor for me!! I had researched and looked for some time before purchasing, I always came back to Maytag. Reputation, price point, sizes to fit my opening.

looks and works great but...
My new fridge looks great-however I find it challenging to store large items such as 4lt, milk jugs, large ketchup,pickles,etc. in the fridge. I am already wondering how I'm going to store food for my xmas parties. I would recommend this fridge for 1 to 2 people but not for a family or someone that likes to cook alot.

Great addition to our kitchen
This product has a good amount of space. It has a shelf that closes half way so you can use larger and taller containers.
The price was comparable to other refrigerators, but this was the quietest. The two drawers in the freezer makes it easy to organize food and you don't loose small items in the freezer. Quick and easy clean up. Everything is easy to find and organize in the refrigerator also.
