The “Latitude” Whirlpool Refrigerator is a French door style refrigerator that is one of the best options available right now when it comes to space, storage options, and extra features.

It features an exterior water and ice dispenser with a LED touch screen. The refrigerator has deeper door bins and drawers than many of its competition, and it makes use of a hidden water filter, where many lines currently have a filter that takes up space within the fridge interior. It also debuts a fantastic new feature: the ability to dispense exact amounts of water – either in ounces, liters, or cups – from the dispenser. This is a great asset to people who cook frequently or who hate wasting time searching for measuring cups. After seeing this in action it’s a wonder why no one else has been offering this.

The Whirlpool Latitude refrigerator also sports Spillguard shelving and non-slip door bin mats – a welcome new feature if you are a messy, disorganized individual like me with a propensity to overstock your fridge door so that things tend to slip all over the place.

As for the freezer, it has wide, solid-bottom drawers that slide out to give you easy access to last week’s frozen leftovers. The benefit of having your freezer below is two-fold; first, it allows you easier access to the foods you use every day, and second, it helps keep your freezer foods cool with minimum energy being expelled (since heat rises and cool air naturally rests towards the floor).

Customers who took the time to review this fridge gave it an average of 4 out of 5 stars; and most all of them agreed that its best features are its attractive exterior, its ability to service large families, and its energy-efficiency. All in all, it has proven to be a reliable refrigerator with excellent storage capabilities and resources. One thing we were surprised to see missing was egg storage in the door. It was a bit puzzling why Whirlpool left it out.

All in all, at a selling price of $2,500 – a good price on a good fridge.

    The reason that they don't add an egg tray in the door is because you are not supposed to store eggs in the door. The door is one of the warmest parts of the refrigerator. Eggs should be stored in the coldest part of the regrigerator, in the back. This keeps the eggs fresher longer, and as any cook will tell you, fresher eggs produce fluffier omlettes.
