I have an odd obsession with my new Maytag Ice20 refrigerator. I am always going up to it, whether I am cooking or not, and I "ooh" and "ahh" for a few minutes. I even spend a little extra time polishing and cleaning it, just because I can. I look forward to cleaning the fridge, and who can really say they look forward to an often cumbersome chore? You know how some men baby their cars and treat them almost as if they were a living, breathing person? Yup. That's me and my fridge to a tee.
You see, I have never had a "new" fridge. I have always used the old, often inefficient ones that just happened to be where I lived. Every other fridge simply served its purpose and nothing more. Now my Maytag? This appliance is special. It's drop-dead gorgeous, has great convenience features that make my life so much easier, and it's incredibly roomy. Now with 3 kids, one being a ravenous teen, that extra space comes in very handy.
With the extra room and innovative design of the Ice20, I can always see everything in the fridge. This makes me so happy because I never have something forgotten in the back of the fridge that closely resembles a science project. It also helps me to save money because it's so easy to take a quick inventory before shopping, so I don't end up buying duplicates because I assumed we ran out of something. (Don't you hate when that happens?!)
Check out just how amazing my fridge is. Yep. I am going to show you the contents of my refrigerator!
Talk about spacious! I love the room in the doors because I can store bulky items like gallons of milk right there out of the way. This frees up valuable space for food inside the fridge. In every other fridge we've had, the milk was always hogging shelf space that should have housed food. Now that's not a problem at all! I did have to get used to putting sauces and condiments on a shelf. It seemed weird at first, but now it's second nature.
Another thing I love about the fridge is that my produce stays fresh longer due to the FreshFlow Produce Preserver. As a matter of fact, everything stays fresh because the folks at Maytag have a group of features that work together to help prolong the freshness of your food. The patented door seal reduces cold air loss, while the Rapid React sensors monitor and adjust temperatures to keep them consistent. The high-efficiency compressor saves energy by reducing temperature fluctuations. Fast Cool quickly drops compartment temperatures to cool warm groceries right when they are loaded into the refrigerator or freezer.
As you can see, we have a LOT of food. I am able to keep all of my lunch meats, bread,(yes, I refrigerate bread. Don't judge me!) and even a whole ham in the fridge with room to spare!
I know I mentioned door space, so I'd like to show you in closer detail what I mean. One side is a little more bare than the other because the kids breezed through our juice boxes in no time flat! There is a wine holder in that side, but right now we have apple sauce pouches in it.
In the other door, I keep butter, cream cheese, some salad dressings and condiments and hot sauces, and 2 gallons of milk. We have a LOT of sauces, so they have kind of taken over the fridge!
I also love the Easy Access Drawer, found in the middle between the main compartment of the fridge and the bottom freezer. Here I store all of our cheeses as well as plenty of fruits and veggies. I love the height of this drawer since it allows my kids to easily grab a healthy snack all by themselves. My soon to be 3 year old is always so proud of herself when she can grab her own apple or string cheese!
The bottom freezer is HUGE. It actually has 2 sections. One is at the bottom, and the other is a wire mesh drawer that conveniently slides out. I have never been able to store so much in a freezer. Here we have sausages, chicken nuggets, frozen veggies of many kinds,meats, as well as corn dogs and other kid-friendly foods.
Aside from being so roomy and sleek, another thing that puts the Ice20 a step above the rest is the fact that cleaning it is an absolute breeze! Maytag uses adjustable Spill-Catcher shelves. These have sealed edges, which keep messes and spills contained. That's right. If there's a spill, it doesn't creep onto everything in the fridge. It stays happily in its own little area. This makes cleaning the fridge so much less time consuming. I clean mine around 2 times a month, other than quick wipedowns daily, and I have found I spent a lot less time scrubbing thanks to this awesome feature.
So as you can see, I have a lot of reasons to feel downright affection for my Maytag Ice20 refrigerator. It saves me time, money, and holds enough food to feed a small army. This fridge is absolutely perfect for my always hungry family of five! I honestly don't know how I lived so long without the Maytag Ice20. This, like our delivery specialist said, truly is the "Lamborghini of Refrigerators".
I have been selected to take a trip to The Real Whirled house in beautiful Benton Harbor/St. Josephs Michigan and the Whirlpool Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois! I will be there in just a few days, and will be learning a lot about Maytag and Whirlpool appliances. So look for all the details of my trip soon!
