I have been enjoying my new Maytag Appliances for several weeks now and I wanted to update you on my thoughts about my Maytag Ice20 French Door Refrigerator. Although I raved about how beautiful it is, I have now had a chance to actually live with it for awhile. I am happy to report that we get along swimmingly!
I hosted Thanksgiving dinner this year (the first time in several years, due to lack of space at our other house), and we also had a large group staying at our house not only for Thanksgiving, but for the whole weekend! I was going to be buying a huge amount of groceries to make sure that I had meals covered for the whole weekend.
Naturally, I was pretty excited about preparing Thanksgiving dinner – not only because I now have a huge kitchen and lots of counter space, but also because my new Maytag appliances were such a huge help. After shopping, I was going to have so many refrigerated items, and I knew it would be interesting to see how they would all fit into my new refrigerator.
Usually I dread huge grocery shopping trips (especially before a big holiday), but this time I didn’t. I was actually looking forward to putting away my groceries in my new Maytag refrigerator.
I was planning on cooking as many things ahead of time as I could, to save time on the big day (and to free me up to spend time with friends and family). Here are a few photos of how my refrigerator looked after I unloaded my groceries.
I was going to be making Buttermilk Waffles one of the mornings, so I bought two cartons of this, as well as a half-gallon of regular milk. The milk, as well as a few water bottles, all fit perfectly in one of the door shelf compartments.
The next shelf held my butter (which I needed quite a bit of, since so many recipes called for it):
All of my condiments fit comfortably in the bottom door shelf:
Here is what the whole refrigerator looked like (and I had room to spare, thank goodness, as I was making several casseroles that would also need to be stored in here!):
I cannot begin to tell you what a relief it was to have everything safely put away, and to still see space for even more stuff. I absolutely love this refrigerator, and two of my favorite things about it are the two drawers. I am amazed at how much room is in each one.
The freezer had just enough room to hold the frozen items I purchased. The freezer isn’t huge, so luckily I didn’t have too much to go in there. I wish it were a tad bit bigger. But I would give up freezer space any day, to have this incredible amount of space in my refrigerator – the part that is used most frequently.
I honestly have no idea how I would have pulled off Thanksgiving dinner without this wonderful refrigerator. I never would have had enough room in my old refrigerator, and that would have been completely stressful. When it came time to store the leftovers (and there were a bunch!), it was a breeze to load them in the refrigerator, and I was also able to fit the desserts in there as well (these were in bar pans and casserole dishes). Again, there was plenty of room to spare!
Christmas is going to be a breeze this year…and just like Thanksgiving, I am very much looking forward to it, thanks to Maytag.
Stay tuned to hear more about my Maytag appliances!
