Comments:

We deliberated over weeks before choosing the Fisher & P. Very limited offerings available in bottom freezer narrow (less than 30") units. We compared to Summit and Liebherr mainly. What made a huge difference is the interior appearance and especially the bins in both the freezer and refrigerator. They all glide out on rails like a dream as opposed to others that have at least one shelf of bins that fall out and drop when pulled out! I have four thermometers for testing and so far the temperature is fairly even around various locations, and very stable. Also my unit sits out in the open and is extremely quiet. Noise should not be a consideration in any application. I'm not impressed with the stainless only exterior option, and the boringly square-edged door design is uninspired. But we decided that the excellent interior trumped the exterior appearance not being top rated by us. The many leveled possibilities for adjusting the three refrigerator shelves are totally adequate. But the door adjustments should have been better thought out. Yes there are a couple of extra nubs to hang the door shelves from, but after you've evaluated what might work best for you, the conclusion is that there is only one efficient layout possible. So really no practical alternatives. Oh well, nothing is perfect! We love this refrigerator every day we use it thanks to all things mentioned above as positives!
