Few appliance companies have been making quality products for as long as Amana, and the Amana XRSS264 American Fridge Freezer displays the company’s years of experience in its function, looks, and performance. This highly rated unit features a stainless steel front with black sides, a look suitable for the décor found in most kitchens.
An overview of the unit shows that it is a frost-free model, free-standing, with side-by-side doors. There is a cube of convenient ice and cold water dispenser you’ll often use on the freezer door without having to open the freezer door for ice. That saves energy, as well as time. The total net storage space is 599 liters, including 399 in the fridge section and 200 in the freezer compartment.
Taking a closer look at the refrigerator space, you’ll discover convenient shelving made of tempered glass. The shelves are sturdy, shatterproof, and easy to clean when needed. Excellent organization is made possible with the deep door storage and adjustable shelves, so your lifestyle is easily accommodated. Remove a shelf quickly if you’ve got taller containers such as wine bottles that you want to keep chilled. The vegetable drawer offers humidity control for longer freshness.
The 4-Star freezer reduces energy costs and keeps all your frozen items within easy reach, so you won’t have to keep the door open while hunting for tonight’s main entrée. And should you experience a loss of power, you won’t need to concern yourself above melting or spoilage for more than 24 hours.
Amana A9RXNMFWS Review
The Amana A9RXNMFWS refrigerator is a small top freezer model with only 19 cubic ft of space. The exterior is actually stainless steel, so that helps a lot with its stylish looks. In this review of the Amana A9RXNMFWS fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses and then decide if it’s worth the near $800 price tag. The black trim around the doors is nice, but I almost wish the entire thing was stainless. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this unit: spill-saver glass shelves, adjustable door bins, deli drawer, dairy center, humidity-controlled crispers, upfront temperature controls, and a wire freezer shelf. The interior is pretty essential on this refrigerator, but that’s pretty common for this size and cost model. The half-width glass shelves are a nice touch.
Alright, onto the negative aspects of the Amana A9RXNMFWS refrigerator. For one thing, I wish it had a factory-installed ice maker. However, you at least have the option to purchase it separately. Another thing is that it’s not Energy Star qualified. This doesn’t necessarily mean it will use a lot more electricity than your old unit – however, it will use more than the average of this size. Also, I wouldn’t say I like the fact that there is no freezer light. This can make it difficult to find items in dim lighting. Overall, the Amana A9RXNMFWS is a no-frills refrigerator – or an almost no-frills model, but you get the idea. It’s fundamental yet looks nice and does a decent job with everything it’s meant to do. I’m giving it a 4 / 5-star rating.
Amana ASD2522WRD refrigerator
The Amana ASD2522WRD refrigerator is a good-looking side-by-side model, with 25.1 cubic ft of space. The exterior is not true stainless steel, but it still looks nice. In this review of the Amana ASD2522WRD fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then determine if it’s worth the nearly $800 asking price. You’d be very hard-pressed to find a true stainless steel unit for this price, so this is about as authentic-looking of a model you’re going to find. So, I think they did an excellent job with the exterior. As far as features go, here’s a rundown of what you can expect: humidity-controlled crisper drawer, gallon door storage, spill saver glass shelves, exterior water, and ice dispensers, dairy center, deli drawer, PuR water filter, and a slide-out plastic freezer container. While the feature list on this refrigerator is not too extensive, it does cover all the basics and then some.
Now we’ll go over the negative aspects of the Amana ASD2522WRD refrigerator. For one thing, only the front is silver-colored, while the sides are black. I wish they would have made the entire unit one solid color. Another thing is that handles seem a little loose unless you tighten them yourself. A few users say they are even a little uneven. Also, the space inside doesn’t quite seem like 25 cubic ft. I think it may just be how it’s laid out, which I think could have been a lot better. Overall, I think the positive features of the Amana ASD2522WRD far outweigh the negatives. I’m giving this refrigerator a 4.2 / 5-star rating.
Amana A8RXNGMWS Review
The Amana A8RXNGMWS refrigerator is a very small top freezer model, with only 17.6 cubic ft of space. And amazingly, the exterior is stainless steel. In this review of the Amana A8RXNGMWS fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses and then decide if it’s worth the nearly $700 price tag. This model would be great for tight spaces, guest houses, apartments, condos, and other smaller places like that. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this model: adjustable spill catcher glass shelves, gallon door storage, dairy center, humidity-controlled crispers, factory-installed ice maker, up-front temperature controls, and contoured doors. While the price is definitely higher than most refrigerators of this size, the features seem to make up for any price gap. In fact, I’m quite impressed they were able to load all these features in here and even top it off with a stainless steel exterior.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Amana A8RXNGMWS refrigerator. Since this model does have an ice maker, you really aren’t left with much of a freezer. Yes, it’s still bigger than a compact model’s freezer, but probably not by much. I’m not thrilled about a couple of other smaller things: it’s not Energy Star qualified, the door storage is not adjustable, there’s no egg container, and the ice is not filtered. Overall, there’s really not that much to complain about with the Amana A8RXNGMWS. It’s most certainly one of the best small refrigerators I’ve ever come across. I’m giving it a 4.5 / 5-star rating.
Amana AFF2534FES Review
The Amana AFF2534FES refrigerator is a French door model with 24.8 cubic ft of space. The exterior is stainless steel, so it has a sleek modern look to it. In this review of the Amana AFF2534FES fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if the $1,500 price tag is too high or just right. First off, here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: adjustable spill-saver glass shelves, humidity-controlled crispers, dairy center, a factory-installed ice maker, full-width chef’s pantry, adjustable door bins, Temp Assure controls, a gliding freezer basket, and also a bottle caddy to store your favorite drinks. This isn’t an extravagant feature set on this refrigerator. However, it does come with a couple of nice extras, such as the chef’s pantry drawer.
Next, we’ll go over the negative aspects of the Amana AFF2534FES refrigerator. One thing I don’t like is that it’s not Energy Star compliant. So remember that you’ll end up spending a little more on energy bills each year. Another thing is that you can’t store really tall items without taking a shelf out. A couple of other annoying things are: you have to have both doors open to get to the chef’s pantry drawer, and you have to close the left door first and then the right one for it to shut properly. Other than those few issues, the Amana AFF2534FES is a nice mid-range refrigerator. Overall, I’m giving this model a 4.1 / 5-star rating.
Amana ASD2522WRB Review
Our Amana ASD2522WRB review: At just over 25 cubic ft, the Amana ASD2522WRB refrigerator is just about as big of a fridge as you’re going to get for $800 (current price and Home Depot). And actually, this model is not just about space, and it has some pretty decent features. A couple of its most notable features are: Energy Star qualified, 3 spill-proof glass shelves, control lockout, through-the-door water, ice dispensers, gallon door bins, sealed crisper drawer, and a slide-out freezer basket. The black exterior gives it a sleek and modern look.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of complaints about the Amana ASD2522WRB refrigerator. Some users complain about the ice maker being too loud. I can understand where they are coming from, but most competitor models are loud as well. Another common complaint was that the Amana ASD2522WRB lacks a meat/cheese drawer. It would have been a nice addition to this refrigerator. A couple of other things: the water is not chilled when it comes out, and it would have been nice to have a little larger freezer shelves. I also came across a few buyers who had problems with it breaking down. I know it was probably a fluke, but beware that side-by-side fridges do tend to break down easier than other styles. Overall, I think this model is a good buy. It has a few issues, but for the number of features it has and the low price tag, I’m giving the ASD2522WRB a 4/5 star rating.
Amana A2RXNMFWW refrigerator
The Amana A2RXNMFWW refrigerator is a top freezer model with 21.9 cubic ft of space. The all-white exterior is pretty bland but would fit in just about any kitchen. In this review of the Amana A2RXNMFWW fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth buying. Currently, this unit is being sold for around $700 – which isn’t too cheap, but still a fair price for the amount of space you get. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this model: up-front temperature controls, contoured doors, adjustable door bins, deli drawer, dairy center, humidity-controlled crispers, adjustable glass shelves, hidden hinges, frost-free defrost system, and this refrigerator also has full-width freezer shelves to help keep things organized up there.
Alright, onto the negative aspects of the Amana A2RXNMFWW refrigerator. Probably the biggest issue with this model is how loud it can get. I’ve run across several users who confirm this. Another thing about this unit is that the cooling vent tends to freeze whatever is nearby, so don’t keep anything too close to it. You don’t want to be frozen. Also, I wish it came with an ice maker. You can buy one separately, but it still would have been nice to get it factory-installed. A couple of other things: it has no freezer light, and it’s not Energy Star certified. Other than those couple of issues, the Amana A2RXNMFWW is a pretty decent refrigerator. It’s definitely basic yet does a fine job at what it was meant to do. Overall, I’m giving it a 3.9 / 5-star rating.
Amana ABB2221WEW refrigerator
The Amana ABB2221WEW refrigerator is a bottom freezer model with nearly 22 cubic ft of space. The all-white exterior is nothing too exciting, but that’s just my opinion. In this review of the Amana ABB2221WEW fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses and then decide if it’s worth the $800 price tag. First off, here’s a quick rundown of the features found on this unit: gallon door storage, two humidity-controlled crispers, a gliding freezer basket, Temp Assured freshness controls, dairy center, reversible door swing, glass shelves, and it’s also Energy Star compliant. I wouldn’t say anything on this refrigerator is too unique, but it does at least cover the basics, plus a few extras. I do really like the freshness controls, and they’re straightforward to use and understand.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Amana ABB2221WEW refrigerator. For one thing, it seems to be a little noisier than a lot of other units of this price and size. I also wish it had a factory-installed ice maker. On the other hand, it would probably make the freezer seem pretty cramped if one was in there. It also would have been nice to have a compartment for eggs. There isn’t a lot else to complain about with this unit, mainly because it’s a pretty basic model, to begin with. Overall, I like the Amana ABB2221WEW refrigerator – it does an admirable job at what it was designed to do. I’m giving this model a 4 / 5-star rating.
Amana ASD2522WRS Review
The Amana ASD2522WRS refrigerator is a side-by-side model with 25.1 cubic ft of space. The stainless steel exterior looks good – although I wouldn’t say great. This review of the Amana ASD2522WRS fridge will go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses. Here’s a rundown of the best features found on this unit: exterior water and ice dispensers, PuR water and ice filter, Energy Star qualified, dairy center, deli drawer, spill-saver glass shelves, adjustable storage bins, sealed crisper drawers, and control lockout. As I mentioned earlier, this refrigerator does have a stainless steel exterior. However, I have seen much better-looking SS models out there.
Now I’ll go into the negative aspects of the Amana ASD2522WRS refrigerator. I wouldn’t say I like the fact that the water is room temperature when it comes out. I suppose you could put some ice in it, but some people just like chilled water. It’s also a little noisier than the average model. Another thing that’s a little annoying is that the sides of the refrigerator are black, while just the front is stainless. Lastly, I don’t think the seals on the doors are the best. One thing that the Amana ASD2522WRS has going for it is that it’s priced very reasonably – around $1,000. Overall, I’m giving this model a 3.8 / 5-star rating.
Amana ABB2222FED Review
The Amana ABB2222FED refrigerator is a mid-range bottom freezer model with 21.9 cubic ft of space. The exterior is not true stainless steel, but it’s a pretty good imitation. In this review of the Amana ABB2222FED fridge, I’ll be going over this model’s best and worst assets. First off, let’s go over what is good about this model, starting with its features: adjustable spill-saver glass shelves, adjustable gallon door bins, a dairy center, and deli drawer, a glide-out freezer basket, Temp Assure freshness controls, Energy Star qualified, and two humidity-controlled crispers. With a price of around $1,200 – this is not a bad set of features.
Next, I’ll go over the potential negative aspects of the Amana ABB2222FED refrigerator. First off, I really wish this model came with an ice maker. I know it’s supposed to be an “extra,” but it sure would have been nice to include standard (yes, I know you can buy it). I also wish it had an egg bin and an ice rack – for those of us who don’t get the optional icemaker. Lastly, the Amana ABB2222FED fridge is definitely louder than the average model. It’s not deafeningly loud, but just enough to be a slight nuisance. Overall, I’m giving this model a 4 / 5-star rating because it’s still a good refrigerator.
Amana ABB1921WEW Review
The Amana ABB1921WEW refrigerator is a bottom-freezer model with 18.5 cubic ft of space. The ABB1921WEW probably doesn’t have enough room for medium to larger-sized families but should work great for smaller families or single folks. This fridge is pretty unique because there are not many bottom-freezer refrigerator models made at this size (normally, they are a top-freezer if they are under 20 cubic ft). The features are pretty sparse, but it does come with: adjustable glass shelves, temp freshness controls, EasyReach freezer door handle, humidity-controlled crispers, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. I actually like that the bottom door is on a hinge instead of the usual slide-out design. It’s easier to open, in my opinion.
I wouldn’t say I like the Amana ABB1921WEW refrigerator because it doesn’t come with a built-in ice maker. It does come with ice bins, but you have to freezer your own ice to put in them (or buy it). Also, I wish the door shelves were just a little bit wider. Space may be an issue for some people – remember that it’s not a huge fridge. What makes the ABB1921WEW worth it is the $900 price tag. I’m giving this refrigerator model a 4/5 star rating.
Amana A8RXNGMWE Review
The Amana A8RXNGMWE refrigerator is only 17.6 cubic ft, so it’s definitely meant for just one or two users. The exterior is white-colored and is intended to be used as a dry erase board. In this review of the Amana A8RXNGMWE fridge, I’ll be going over the best and worst features of this model. Here’s a rundown of its best features: adjustable spill-saver glass shelves, deli drawer, gallon door bins, factory-installed ice maker, humidity-controlled crispers, and of course, the dry erase board feature. I think the fact that you can write messages on the exterior of this refrigerator will make it especially appealing to the younger crowd.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of things I don’t like about the Amana A8RXNGMWE refrigerator as well. First off, it’s a pretty noisy model. It seems to make a knocking noise every so often – it could have something to do with the ice maker. Also, when you pull the top drawer out, the shelf comes with it sometimes. The side bin is a little smaller than advertised, which means it doesn’t fit gallon-sized containers very quickly or at all. Lastly, the freezer space in the Amana A8RXNGMWE fridge is minimal due to the ice maker. Though I must admit, I would rather have the ice maker than a little more space. I’m giving this model a 3.8 / 5-star rating.
Amana A4TXNWFWW Review
Our Amana A4TXNWFWW review: With 14.4 cubic ft of space, you won’t get a lot of room with the Amana A4TXNWFWW refrigerator. However, it would work perfectly in a small house, apartment, condo, or even a smaller second refrigerator. A few features you’ll find on this model are three adjustable wire shelves, an up-front temp control system, three-door shelves, interior light, dairy center, and it also has reversible doors. The white exterior on this fridge gives it a more classic look. As you can see, it has the essentials covered, but not much else.
Unfortunately, you won’t be getting several features when you buy the Amana A4TXNWFWW refrigerator. For instance: the shelves are wire and not glass, there is no freezer light, no egg container, no optional ice maker, not Energy Star qualified, and no gallon door storage. All that to say, it is indeed a fundamental model – but that doesn’t make it a wrong model. I think the Amana A4TXNWFWW is an excellent little refrigerator. The $400 price tag justifies a lot of the missing features. If all you need is a fundamental model that works great, I would recommend this model. I’m giving it a 4.5/5 star rating.
Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
An Epinions user reviews the Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator: “The Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator is pretty nice. It is a bit noisy, though – it has a good hum to it. Also, we do not care for the cold cuts drawer that runs the length of the fridge across – you get used to accessing everything when you open only one side of the fridge – but for that drawer, you have to open both sides. Next time I’d spend a little bit more money and get something of a little better quality and a bit quieter.”
Another user wrote: “The Amana Easy Reach AFD2535DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator’s appearance is excellent, filter change out was easy, and storage is good in both upper & lower compartments. Installation was a breeze. Manuals were accurate and complete. We haven’t found any weak points yet, no unexpected noises, and no leaks.
We don’t care for the vast, single meat storage bin as it requires both doors to be opened for access. The compartment rails in the door storage bins are rounded, reducing the number of possible items stored in the doors.”
Amana A8RXNGMWB Review
The Amana A8RXNGMWB refrigerator is a 17.6 cubic ft, all-black model. Even though it’s smaller than the average fridge, the Amana A8RXNGMWB has a few features you would typically find on a larger, more expensive refrigerator. The contoured doors, hidden hinges, and smooth black exterior give it a sleek modern look. A few other features you’ll find on this model are gallon door storage, deli drawer, dairy center, factory-installed ice-maker, adjustable spill-saver glass shelves, up-front temp controls, and two crispers. Like I mentioned earlier, you rarely see all those features in a fridge that’s under 18 cubic ft. The Amana A8RXNGMWB refrigerator’s price is also very reasonable – currently around $500.
Now, I’ll go over any negatives this fridge might have. A few buyers complain about the noise level. I don’t think it’s much louder than the average refrigerator, but it does make funny noises from time to time. The Amana A8RXNGMWB fridge’s exterior attracts fingerprints pretty quickly. The rare user said that it broke down after a year – but I think this is the exception rather than the rule. Overall, I believe the Amana A8RXNGMWB is a beautiful smaller refrigerator. I’m giving it a 4/5 star rating.
Amana Quick Tap Refrigerator
The Amana Quick Tap refrigerator is innovative. In the center of the fridge is a dispenser – but this is no ordinary water dispenser. It allows you to fill up the cooling container inside with whatever beverage you like. If you so choose, the Amana Quick Tap refrigerator could potentially dispense KoolAid, soda, or even chilled wine. The interior is only 17.5 cubic ft, so it’s not a very big fridge by any means. It is loaded with a child lock, wine rack, adjustable glass shelves, two crisper drawers, and a gallon door storage.
The Amana Quick Tap refrigerator comes in two different colors: Red (A8WXNGFWH) and Silver (A8WXNGFWD). The retail price is $800, so it’s really not that expensive. I’m really not sure what to make of this new refrigerator. It’s pretty cool, but it almost seems like a novelty item that would get boring after a couple of months of use. Also, I would have liked to see a built-in ice maker included (the ice maker is sold separately) – especially since the dispenser is the main selling point. However, at $800, the Amana Quick Tap is still a bargain refrigerator.
