Performance and Features
Perhaps the biggest advantage of the Frigidaire Gallery is its consistency in maintaining the right temperatures inside, regardless the outside environment. This refrigerator is designed to operate even in the lowest and highest temperatures, meaning you can also use it as a backup unit in the garage without worrying it won’t work in cold or hot days. Both the freezer and the refrigerator compartments manage to maintain an even temperature to assure the best food storage as long as you set the thermostat to a low temperature. Another aspect that makes this refrigerator extremely practical is its efficiency, even with the icemaker running. While most units tend to lower the yield during the ice making process, this one offers maximum efficiency and maintains a proper temperature. The crisper drawers of this refrigerator also allow it to keep a proper level of humidity for the fruits and vegetables. The Ready-Select Control panel is a quickly-accessible sliding control located on the side of the refrigerator to allow you to adjust the temperatures fast and easy.
