French door fridge and external ice & water

Do you regret getting an external ice & water feature because of the space you lost inside the fridge? I am really torn on this decision. Right now our fridge has one but we don't have a french door so I only lose space in the freezer (and we have an additional deep freezer). I'm not sure if I want to lose any of the refrigerator space but I really like having the water in the door!! Thoughts?

We love it - We got the Samsung frig and the unit is on the door - It also doesnt take up a lot of space at all

Re: French door fridge and external ice & water

I love our refrigerator! It's an LG french door with the water dispenser on the door, but they made the dispenser part larger, to accommodate full water bottles, and they minimized the amount of space it takes up inside the refrigerator.
It's the perfect fridge ever. I would marry it if I could. That's how much I love it.

We opted for no dispenser on the door purely for esthetic reasons. Our Kitchenaid has it to the left when you open the door and it takes up no room.

Yes - I do regret the fridge, but for more reason than one. I regret that i bought it on Home depot's website without looking at it because it is Stainless steel "LOOK" not stainless (I didn't even know that existed) and I cannot fit ANYTHING in the freezer, especially not frozen pizzas. I cant really take advantage of any good Buy1 Get1 meat deals cause I can't fit much in it...not to mention I loved the idea of having the ice and water maker but DH has yet to hook it up almost 2 years later so it was a waste of a purchase. We have decided that when we redo the kitchen in the next few years we are replacing it.

Re: French door fridge and external ice & water

i have a samsung as well...i got it beacuse the ice unit was not very big and takes up very little space in the fridge itself.

i love it!

Re: French door fridge and external ice & water

We just recently got an Electrolux. There still is plenty of room in the refrigerator even with the ice & water on the door. Lots of room in the bottom freezer too. I love it!

We have water on the door no ice. The filter takes up a little space but not much & the ice is in the freezer & I love it.

I have a GE Profile and purchased it for the external ice & water and because it took up very little room internally. BUT I was recently at Best Buy and browsing through the appliances and noticed an LG with external dispenser (I'm pretty sure it was an LG) and I was blown away at how little space it took up within the refrigerator!


FWIW...no regrets.

hmmmm I guess it's just the model that we are looking at that takes up a lot of room in the fridge. We are pretty limited in our choices due to the measurements we need and the green program that we are buying through. We are looking at the Frigidaire premier gallery and the Frgidaire professional and their water/ice systems seem to take up a lot of space.

Re: French door fridge and external ice & water

We just got a new fridge with french doors. The sales guy was pushing for the water and ice maker but I didn't want it. Ours only has the ice maker in the freezer which is perfect. We drink bottled water though, not tap so much. If you drink a lot of tap water, I would imagine a brita would take up the same space.

Re: French door fridge and external ice & water

I have the GE Profile with the counter depth and water on the door/ ice on the bottom and I love it.

I don't have kids and travel alot lately for work and don't stock tons of food, though I have a full freezer b/c I froze everything since I'm basically away until mid June.

I love having the water b/c my DH can refill his water bottles since he is insane and loves to drink water out of the bottle.

Re: French door fridge and external ice & water

I have a Samsung with a water spout in the INSIDE of the fridge. I too did not like how much space the water/ice maker took on the door.
I have the French door style and ice is make in the bottom freezer.
