The best refrigerator with a bottom freezer is the Samsung RF268ABRS, according to reviews by Good Housekeeping. The Whirlpool Gold ENERGY STAR model GI5FSA also received high ratings.
The Samsung offered almost-perfect temperature control and a multitude of additional features. Reviewers positively noted the adjustable glass shelves, large adjustable bins on the refrigerator door, two icemakers and hanging wine rack. The easy-open door was another bonus feature cited by the magazine, but the refrigerator got low marks for the shelves being heavy and hard to remove.
Whirlpool's model had less features but kept temperatures even throughout and held at a steady rate over time. Door temperatures remained cool enough to store dairy products safely. The space-saving can rack dispenses cans one at a time, and the unit is easy to load due to adjustable shelves in the refrigerator compartment.
