I seem to be one of the quite fortunate customers (that is according to many negative reviews and photos) to have purchased this handsomely designed exterior and spaciously considered interior model. I had ordered mine from Walmart.com, received delivery within merely a few days, and it arrived via Fed-Ex in nearly excellent, or certainly close enough to excellent condition. Apparently during the shipping process, two tiny "dimples" occurred to the rear portion of the unit's side, which are barely noticeable and of no effect whatsoever on its operation. I am certainly glad that no blemishes were caused to either of the doors, and I regard those blemishes as so minor that they do not realistically matter. Walmart, needless to say, is offering this "Igloo" 3.2 cubic foot 2-Door Refrigerator and Freezer, with stainless-steel front, at a truly affordable price. Curtis International actually manufactures this and other designs under various brands, and while it's worthy to mention the fact that Curtis International has below standard customer service, yet, all in all, the plus is you're purchasing it from Walmart, a business that has superior customer service policies. Now, a brief description of this great product. First, I surely cannot speak to any issue of durability at this early point, though it does seem more than adequately constructed, and it runs smoothly and properly. The exterior black body with stainless-steel doors is impressively handsome in appearance, and the interiors of both compartments are generously spacious, especially considering that the overall unit is in the compact classification. At a setting of approximately#5, both the refrigerator and freezer compartments, respectively, do keep foods within a sufficient and appropriate temperature range. There are times, usually dependent upon conditions, when you may want to temporarily bring the setting up to #6. I find that, with some patience to allow for the unit to adjust, the thermostat setting can be slightly lowered in increments, while still maintaining just about equal coldness. The motor/compressor functions at a normal pace, not turning on and off with excessive frequency, and I think that the unit must be somewhat energy efficient. The two shelves are adjustable, spill-resistant, clear glass. The produce compartment is nice, though the bottom is smaller than the upper shelves due to contouring for the compressor, and I personally prefer not to use the plastic basket so as to create a bit more space and more versatility of food storage at the bottom. I highly recommend this product to anyone who desires a rather decent and good sized unit, and you'll assuredly pay an affordable and very reasonable price. I am unquestionably pleased to own my food companion. Hope my review is helpful to others. Join me and enjoy this product, also!!!
