The Fridge Gets a Sophisticated Twist

Ah, the French. We love their food, we love their wine, we love their joie de vivre ‑- and their design sense isn't too shabby either.

At least Maytag thinks so. The appliance company combined the best of two freezer-refrigerator designs to create the French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator, which features side-by-side fridge doors and a lower-level freezer for easier access to fresh food. "Most people have particular tastes when shopping for a refrigerator," observes Bill Deter, vice president at Maytag. "These days, the style and door configuration of a refrigerator are just as important to consumers as size, color and storage features."

The unit is also equipped with a PureChill internal filtered water dispenser and a temperature-controlled pantry drawer that can be set four degrees lower then the surrounding compartments to chill wine ‑- something the French would definitely approve of.
