Top mounts are a neglected category. My family had an Amana 23 cubic foot top mount when I was a kid. Now everyone is buying french doors.

Having a bottom freezer is more convenient for refrigerator access. You can, however, have more cubic footage in a top mount than any other configuration in popular 30 inch cabinets.

Most manufacturers also cannot build a top mount to Federal Energy Standards, so there is way less selection. In fact, Frigidaire almost owns the category. Their attempt at an upscale top mount is logical for that reason.

Let's look to see if its worth it.

Is The Flex Door Worth It?

It depends. If you have a family with a smaller kitchen, this will store more with better accessibility. Refrigerator doors haven’t changed, at least since 1986 while I've been here. Yet, food and packaging certainly has. GoGurts, gallons of soda as well as cheese sticks are all somewhat recent inventions, and this refrigerator allows you to store what you now use.

The refrigerator is smart and now custom. However, I doubt Frigidaire will woo away people who are buying new refrigerators for prestige and appearance. They will also not sway you if you are buying on price as this is $300 more expensive.

That is two large pools of buyers.
