Refrigerator Help! Would you go bigger if you could go back?
First, about my husband and myself. We are a young family (I am pregnant with our first and hopefully only child), and we LOVE to cook and make our own stocks and such (we don't hunt and fish, though). I also plan on making baby food.
We have been refrigerator shopping and seemed content with a Whirlpool Gold 25 cu ft fridge. Then we got wowed by a Frigidaire 27.8 cu ft (same price as Whirlpool one) as well as the Kenmore Elite 31 cu ft and LG 31 cu ft fridge (about $1000 more).
We thought we could incorporate a small deep freeze in our pantry, but we realized we'd be DOUBLING our freezer space with the really big fridge/freezer. It would free up pantry space by eliminating the deep freeze. We don't need a water dispenser/ice dispenser in door (those seem to cause more problems), but it's a given with the bigger fridges.
My question is: which would you pick. Please include brand reliability in your response as well.
