Why I appreciate each of my 5 new Frigidaire appliances

As I’ve gotten to know my new Frigidare appliances better, I’ve become very dependent on features of the appliances that I didn’t have in my old appliances and I now rely on and appreciate the following features of each appliance all of which I use almost every day.

The Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator
I love that the refrigerator’s ice and water dispenser has a lock feature which makes it so that Sebastian and Madelyn aren’t able to get water or ice when I don’t want them to.
USAGE EXAMPLE: I don’t want Madelyn using the ice or water dispenser is after 6pm because I don’t want her to have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. If she gets up, I get up. Another thing I like about the Frigidaire refrigerator is that it makes smaller ice cubes than my mom’s does. We use thin tall glasses as opposed to wide short glasses and the smaller that ice cubes that the Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator makes fit my glasses just right.
The drawers in the refrigerator are tall so I am able fit heads of lettuce and other large items including a whole watermelon (the kids favorite!) in the drawers without stuffing without the drawer being difficult to close.

The Frigidaire Gallery Electric Range
Almost every day I use the quick boil feature on the Frigidare Gallery Range.
USAGE EXAMPLE: I drink tea and used to have to wait for what seemed like forever for the water to boil and would sometimes put my teacup in my old microwave to boil the water, but actually broke two tea cups doing that, so the quick boil feature is something I really appreciate. I also appreciate the high rim around the edge of the range which keeps food and spills from being wiped onto the floor. My son and husband thought it was really convenient to wipe the crumbs off of the range onto the floor or in-between the range and cabinet thinking I wouldn’t figure it out. Talk about being embarrassed.. imagine all of the crumbs and dried up spills on the floor that the appliance installers saw when they removed the old range.

The Frigidaire Gallery Dishwasher
The dishwasher racks are sturdier than my old dishwasher’s racks and the adjustable racks and silverware compartments are great for small stuff.
USAGE EXAMPLE: I was often frustrated when the top rack would tilt downward almost as if it was going to cause the dishwasher to fall out from the cabinet. The dishwasher’s drawers have lots of folding/storage options which are great for small lids and those little plastic things that go inside sippy cup tops. I wash Madelyn’s bath toys in the dishwasher so the small storage areas are wonderful for those as well. The sanitizing option is great for moms who’s baby uses bottles and for those bath toys that have built up soap scum on them.

The Frigidaire Affinity Front Load Washer and Dryer
The washer and dryer are fabulous! My favorite features are the seven wash cycles including one especially for whites and deep clean sanitize and the door lock feature.
USAGE EXAMPLE: Not that Sebastian (my 10 year old son) or Tim (my husband) do laundry very often but it annoyed the daylights out of me when they would add clothes 10 minutes after a load was started. Now, they think twice before adding garments because they have to hit the pause button first so the door will unlock. Otherwise, the door can’t be opened during a cycle. Adding detergent is simple with the small dispenser drawer that holds the laundry products you use including detergent, fabric softener, and bleach.
It’s really easy to remove the link trap from the dryer and unlike my old dryer (over 10 yrs. old) the lint doesn’t get stuck or snag on anything when I pull it out.

The Frigidaire Gallery About the Range Microwave
I’m not so fond of how loud the beep is but I do appreciate the repeating beeps when I forget about the cooked food.
USAGE EXAMPLE: There are times when I go upstairs to do something while chicken nuggets are cooking, and there used to be times when I would forget about them and not remember them until I found them in the microwave 1/2 an hour later. You know how kids are, if they are busy, they’re not hungry. Madelyn could care less about food most of the time so if I was cooking for her only, I would sometimes forget about the food in the microwave because the beep wasn’t very loud or would not repeat if I didn’t get the food out, on my old microwave. I have not forgotten about food in the microwave since getting the Frigidaire Gallery Microwaver because it continues to beep (very loudly) until I open the microwave.
