The best ap­pli­ances

Cecil Whig - - & & -

DEAR MARY: What is the best re­frig­er­a­tor brand over­all? We are ready to pur­chase a French-door style re­frig­er­a­tor with wa­ter and ice com­part­ments in the door. Thank you. — Anne

DEAR ANNE: When my hus­band did a ma­jor re­model of our kitchen, I went into hy­per­re­search mode to find the ex­act re­frig­er­a­tor you de­scribe. I had one more re­quire­ment: a rea­son­able price. It didn’t take long for me to scrub the Sam­sung brand due to the nu­mer­ous poor r eviews from buy­ers and feed­back from the ap­pli­ance re­pair­men I in­ter­viewed. I’ll cut to the chase and tell you that we opted for GE Pro­file Series En­ergy Star 27.7 cu­bic feet French-Door Re­frig­er­a­tor. I loved ev­ery­thing about that re­frig­er­a­tor for the six months I got to en­joy it be­fore we sold that house — es­pe­cially its lower freezer. Find­ing it on sale made the price right, too.

We also re­placed the 13-yearold side-by-side re­frig­er­a­tor that came with our new home. And I won’t hes­i­tate one mo­ment to buy the En­ergy Star re­frig­er­a­tor again. Ac­tu­ally, I can hardly wait. I hope that helps.

DEAR MARY: Have you re­searched or found the most quiet clothes dryer? That is my top pri­or­ity. The one I have now is so noisy! Thanks. — Donna

DEAR DONNA: I highly rec­om­mend the LG DLEX3570W 7.4 cu­bic feet Ul­tra Large Ca­pac­ity SteamDryer. I’ve owned that dryer and can tell you that LG’s LoDeci­bel Quiet Op­er­a­tion sys­tem is quite amaz­ing. There were times I had to check the set­tings to see if the thing was even run­ning. That’s how quiet it is. And while the steam op­tion wasn’t on my list of must-haves, once I used it, it be­came my fa­vorite bonus feature.
