Maytag Ice (-2) Refrigerator

Always wanted a refrigerator that wouldn’t get a free backache with it? Tired of bending all the time for the storage of fresh food in the base compartment? Then here comes the reinvention of the refrigerator. The new Maytag Ice {-2} O French door bottom-freezer refrigerator combines the best of a side-by-side refrigerator and bottom drawer freezer in one. Fresh food is visible at eye level and frozen food is easily accessible. It’s also the first French door bottom-freezer refrigerator to include an ice and water dispenser. Eight pounds of ice can be made in 24 hours. Wow! It’s quite an ice age in there. Other features include a beverage chiller that keeps soda, drinks, and up to two gallons of milk colder than the rest of the refrigerator; a full-width, temperature-controlled deli drawer; a built-in organizer that stores cans, 20-ounce bottles, or yogurt just inside the door; an “elevator” shelf that rolls up and down smoothly to accommodate larger items; adjustable, humidity-controlled crisper drawers; and external controls for independent adjustment of temperatures in the fresh food and freezer compartments.

A new, high-gloss, smooth finish comes in white, black, and bisque; there’s also a stainless steel finish. All of that actually fits inside this fridge if you ever lose your house you know where to move in. This doesn’t come cheap; it costs a confounding retail price of $2,200 to $2,500.
