Samsung Electronics America, Inc. is an industry leader and innovator in consumer electronics as well as home appliances. The Samsung RF268AB French door refrigerator with bottom freezer is one of the company's pacesetting refrigerators.
The French door refrigerator's design can accommodate both small and large kitchens. The side-by-side refrigerator's contour doors have a smooth finish and concealed hinges. The doors require less space for opening than a traditional refrigerator freezer. Outfitted with Samsung's proprietary EZ-Open Handle, children, the elderly and people with disabilities will have no difficulty accessing their favorite foods, snacks and beverages.
Design conscious consumers may appreciate that the Samsung side-by-side refrigerator is available in three different colors: white, stainless steel and black. The total storage capacity of the Samsung RF268AB bottom freezer refrigerator is 25.5 cubic feet. This spacious amount can easily meet the needs of an average-sized household.
Samsung's RF268AB side-by-side refrigerator has a twin cooling system that comes equipped with independent controls for both the refrigerator and freezer compartments. This capability ensures that the airflow for the freezer is dry, while the moisture and humidity level for the refrigerator stays at 42 percent.
The bottom freezer refrigerator is Energy Star certified. The estimated yearly operating cost is approximately $55.00. The annual estimated electricity consumption is 519kWh. Samsung backs the French door refrigerator with a one-year parts and labor warranty. The sealed system components have a five-year warranty on all parts and labor.
The refrigeration compartment of the French door refrigerator has 17.6 cubic feet for the storage of fresh food items. Cool blue LED lighting makes inventorying the contents of the refrigerator freezer a straightforward chore. Five spill proof, tempered glass, tilt-up shelves assist with organization. The tilt-up shelves lift to accommodate taller items. Additional storage features include a gallon-sized door bin, humidity controlled crispers and an egg container.
A full width drawer stores deli items, party platters, cheeses, meats and more. This deli-drawer has a dedicated temperature control that owners can adjust to their own preferences. Owners of the Samsung bottom freezer refrigerator report that the deli-drawer cannot hold much weight. Placing several items in the bin such as bologna, bacon and blocks of cheese, causes the drawer to fall off its track. Despite this glitch, most owners acknowledge that the French door refrigerator's superior climate control and temperature regulation allow for the keeping of meat and vegetables longer.
The doors of the side-by-side refrigerator have bins for the storage of small containers, condiments, dressings, juices, butter and more. A gallon-sized storage area houses a jug of milk and other oversized containers.
The freezer compartment of the refrigerator freezer has a total storage capacity of 8.1 cubic feet. The freezer has an automatic icemaker, in-door pizza pocket, a single large storage bin equipped with two dividers and 60W interior lighting. Owners report that the pizza pocket is innovative but cannot accommodate a 16-inch pizza unless you remove one of the freezer's dividers.
The Samsung bottom freezer refrigerator has dual icemakers located in both the refrigeration and freezer compartment. It takes over 48 hours to fill the icemakers the first time. However, afterwards the icemakers refill quickly. The water and ice dispensers have a lock out capability that prevents children from tampering or playing with the dispensers. Because of a water filter, the dispensed water and ice are free of bad odors and aftertaste. One consistent owner report is that the icemakers are unpleasantly loud.
The side-by-side refrigerator freezer has external, digital, intuitive-to-use touch controls that allow the owner to modify the storage temperature, humidity, and dispenser settings. The display lists the freezer and refrigeration compartments temperatures separately. An indicator light informs the owner of when it is time to change the dispenser's water filter.
Samsung's French door refrigerator has doors that close automatically. In the event that a door is ajar, an alarm notifies the owner of the situation. This safety feature prevents energy waste and food spoilage.
