Whirlpool ET0MSRXT Top Freezer Refrigerator Review

The Whirlpool ET0MSRXT top freezer refrigerator is not small enough to be considered a compact model, but it is also not among the biggest in its class. However, its size may be its biggest draw since the Whirlpool ET0MSRXT is small enough to fit into small kitchens and homes, yet packs in a lot of the features that are expected from larger models.
The price of this model also serves to attract budget-conscious consumers who need a reliable refrigerator without burning a hole in their pocket. Customers love the contoured, smooth doors and handle that match very well with most kitchen and apartment d├ęcor. The features inside the refrigerator include a full width, humidity controlled crisper for storing a wide selection of fruits and vegetables, plus the SpillMizer shelves can be repositioned (or even fully removed) to accommodate varying sizes of bottles, cartons, and other containers.
However, tall bottles might be hard to fit inside the door bins, so you’d have to be satisfied with keeping them in the main shelves. Aside from helping to control messy spills, the Spillmizer shelves also allow for easy cleanup should anything happen, which is always a big plus in anyone’s book.
The Whirlpool ET0MSRXT top mounted freezer also has dual temperature controls, which means that you can individually control the temperatures in the freezer and in the main food compartment. This is always a welcome detail, although it is already considered to be a common feature in all current models and far from innovative.
The freezer, with a 2.7 cubic feet capacity, has two shelves for storage purposes, where you can fit three 1/2 gallon ice cream containers, two or three ice cube trays, and several plastic packs of meat or chicken. However, potential buyers might be a little put off by the fact that there are no ice cube trays to go along with the fridge.
Because it was designed to be a space-saving model that can easily fit into cramped areas, it should be expected that the Whirlpool ET0MSRXT top freezer refrigerator lacks some of the features that you might expect from larger, more expensive models. It doesn’t have cantilevered shelves, gallon door storage, and no ice maker or dispenser. It also does not carry Energy Star certification.
The 9.6 cubic feet total capacity is actually perfect for singles or a couple with small needs, and in some cases, could even accommodate a small family of four. The freezer compartment is spacious for its class, and the same goes for the full width crisper bin. Dual controls for both the freezer and main food compartments, plus humidity control on the crisper bin are standard features that do not disappoint.
Some customers might want a little more shelving on either the door or the main compartment, but as mentioned, the main draw of this model is its space-saving capabilities. It fits easily inside all but the smallest of kitchens, studios, and apartments, and considering the price range, there is little to complain about.
