Don't be fooled by gadgets and chrome trims
It all started with our old Maytag twin door 800l fridge losing the battle against old age after 15 years. So we had to find a new fridge started on web looking for honest reviews which are hard to find. The obvious choices Samsung, LG as they seem to fill the stores and offer great discounts. We wanted a reliable fridge maybe losing some features. Then we found the Mitsubshi, it lacked the ice and water through the door like our old Maytag but I can tell you that is the first thing that will fail. Mitsubishi new that so they dropped that featu...re from their line...braves move, smart boys. The ice maker on this model is on the inside, it has a compartment that you fill like the washer bottle in your car. Maybe an optional plumbed line would be a nice trouble free feature improvement here. The fridge is beautifully built glass front over a painted surface, looks great and should be very durable, finger marks don't show on our silver model. Fridge runs almost silent and the compressor on this fridge is made by Mitsubshi the master of refrigeration having owned several AC units from different manufacturers over many years Mitsubishi are the leaders by far. Do your home work, the other manufactures only over 1-2 years on their fridges Mitsubishi offer 5 years on their entire fridge, now that's tells you something...they believe in their product and stand behind it for 5 years, and 10 years on the the compressor. This fridge doesn't have funky door in door ...please really why more trouble, or water and ice through the door more trouble. If you like the strong good looking silent type this the fridge. I will update this review in 1-2 years of ownership, but I have no doubt my opinion won't change.
Delighted with this Frig
Our Amana 710L side by side frig/freezer finally karked it after 22 years of faithful service. We chose this frig because of -
*Dimensions - It would fit into the existing cupboards frig recess, as well as though the door access to the house. (Yes, minor cupboard alteration only required)
*It was of sturdy (not flimsy) interior construction that could stand up to the knocks day to day family use. (Yes, although would prefer if chilled (meat) trays were a more sturdy)
*Was easy accessible interior layout. (Yes, much better than the old frig.)
We bought this fridge recently (Aug/2019) for our new home. The fridge is quiet, has multiple different temperature zones. The ice maker does not require plumbing. Overall we are very happy with the purchase.
Now this is a Fridge!
So grateful we did our research as we would never have considered the Brand. WOW.... the tech is awesome and the warranty unbeatable! As for performance, this is as good as and at times better, than many commercial fridges (and I have commercial kitchen experience). The ONLY gripe is the degree of main shelf flexibility but we have over come this after a few months. The multiple freezer drawers are sensational! The in-door or rather on-front-of-door hidden display is amazing! As is the the range and degree of functions, ALL accessible fro...m the "behind the glass" door panel. Looks like stainless steel but it's glass. You want high tech, high efficient refrigeration without spending massive $'s? This is the brand and the fridge! Having had a sub-zero in the past, I can't believe for a 9th of the price we got a better fridge with greater benefits across the board! Mitsubishi you can won we for life (for fridges)!!

Love this fridge in spite of common door issue
Looks fantastic, easy to clean, huge veg drawer at the perfect height and freezer drawer on the bottom, veg lasts longer than any fridge I’ve ever had, perfect...
Developed issue of flap (for sealing doors) flipping open when left door only opened...doesn’t do it if right door already open so it appears the right door interferes with the opening of the left and pulls the seal into its closed position...Mitsubishi sent someone who changed out the left door seal arm/spring but it’s also doing it so maybe a design fault requiring as others say both doors to be opened...I noticed if you are really soft and gentle you can get away with it but most people don’t open a fridge door that way
I love it anyway
Love it, love it, love it.
What a fabulous appliance. To those of you who didn't learn straight up the "trick" to opening the doors. Sorry. Both left and right must be opened using the ridge at the bottom of the doors. So much room, so many drawers, plenty of lighting to see what you have in it, and the ice-maker! What more could you want? I just love it and recommend it highly. Lucky enough to only pay $2,699 on special.

First off, I need to respond to a couple of other reviewers here. Specifically samuel s. and Judi. It sounds like you are both doing what my wife and I initially instinctively did, opening the right-hand door (correctly using the finger channel underneath) and then opening the left door by grabbing hold of the vertical side which includes the white plastic centre divider. Doing this, one tends to pull it open (Flat), requiring you to force it back flat. Instead ALWAYS open both doors from underneath using the hidden finger channel ON BOTH doors.... Readers here will guess you both will have worked this out by now, but a tip/warning for others looking to buy this excellent fridge freezer. It is not a fault of the the fridge. It's a user fault! Now onto my review. This is an almost perfect refrigerator. Mitsubishi are up there as one of the best air conditioning manufacturers in the world today, so they know something about cooling stuff. This is a well designed fridge/freezer. The outside is very different to other brands with the lack of visible handles, glass front (which you can draw on with marker pen. Very handy for note to the family or reminders to buy milk, butter, etc) and the general sleek minimalist look. The display is hidden in the left-hand side of the front panel and lights up when you press your finger on a subtle graphic. Gosh, even the Mitsubishi Electric Inverter logo is minimalist compared to other fridges. Nice one Mitsubishi! We opted for the silver version btw. The super chiller is a neat function that extends the life of fish, meats, cheeses, etc by lowering the temp. The ice maker works great and is simple to use. They even thought of including a little rubber mat so the ice cubes don't clatter and make a noise when being produced. Nice touch that. As others have mentioned, some of the tray plastics feel a little flimsy, which lets, what otherwise is a great fridge, down a little. The lighting is bright. The veg crisper and freezer compartments are adequate and keep produce frozen and fresh. Not sure about Mitsubishi's claim the yellow veggie light adds Vitamin C and keeps the veggies fresher for longer. Mmmmm. Last but not least, Mitsubishi's designers thoughtfully included hard square 'feet socks' to cover the front feet adjusters. A nice touch that tops off the square minimalist look. Lovely.

Great fridge after issue resolved.
First thing I noticed with my new fridge was the left hand door white plastic arm flinging out and not returning back in when closing the door which resulted in it smashing on the right hand door. Reached out to Mitsubishi after a month of visitors coming over and smashing the doors together which resulted in someone coming over and replacing a small spring in the left hand door. This didn’t fix the issue. Called again and someone was there within two weeks to replace the whole plastic arm brand new. I no longer have the issue but have a small ...amount of damage (scratches) on the right hand door which is disappointing but happy it’s fixed. The fridge overall is great, love the ice dispenser, love the vege drawer and the spacious freezer. Would be 5/5 stars if it wasn’t for the issue with the door.

Out of the box and display is not working
Just bought this product and turned it on. Display stays on and doesnt respond to anything (its not child locked). Very dissapointing considering the amount of money I've paid for it. Will return and go to a different brand.
Purchased in February 2020 for $4,000.00.
Glass finish is very nice & easy to wipe down. Internal lighting is excellent. Maintains perfect temperature in all compartments. Easy to use touch screen on door. Very very quiet. Vege drawer is so easy to access spacious & keeps veges fresh..especialy love this. Plenty of space in all compartments. Love the separate chill & cooler drawers for keeping meat or cheese etc extra cool. Only complaint is these lightweight chill & cooler drawers could have improved slide open action. Icemaker works a treat. Overall very happy with our new fridge.
A bit frustrated
I bought this fridge for the separate vege drawer as I have this version in the single size fridge/freezer and I love that aspect. Only problem I have is the left hand door of the fridge plastic seal in the middle of the door needs to be manually pushed back in before the door can shut. Appears to be a design fault and as I am left handed I prefer to open the left hand side.
Fabulous fridge, but minor imperfections
My family is thrilled with this fridge. In particular, I love the vegetable drawer, the ice maker and the huge capacity. What I don't love is that the silver glass finish shows fingerprints and smears. Easy to clean off, but a bit annoying. The French doors don't close unless they are shut quite firmly. When you do that, the bottles in the doors bang around. It would be great if the door compartments came with those inserts that stop bottles moving around. Some fridges have them. The wide chilled cover/flap is pretty cheap and flimsy unfortunat...ely, but I am pleasantly surprised that I like the wide chiller more than I expected. It's great to see all the dairy and antipasto laid out in one place. The super cooler is brilliant for storing fish, soups and meat at a nice cold (but not frozen) temperature.

Has the wow factor
Great looking frig, super quiet and very functional. I love the vegie drawer - keeps everything fresh and at the right temperature and it is easy to see everything - no more rotten vegetable hidden at the back. The ice maker is also another great feature without the extra expense of plumbing. Overall very impressed
Fantastic all round great fridge.
Very sturdy and elegant looking fridge. The toughened glass shelves are adjustable to a variety of configurations, the drinks and bottled condiments holders are generous, and the freezer with quick ice-maker is superb. Aesthetically pleasing it oozes class and sophistication, and would look good in any house. You won’t be disappointed.

Best fridge I have ever had
Have had this fridge for only 2.5 weeks but so far I am totally happy with it. It looks great, the glass on stainless steel finish works well, it is pretty much silent and it keeps the food in great condition. It is also very flexible with its drawer configuration and access is easy. The controls are electronic and very simple. It has an ice maker with a manually filled water tank which suits perfectly as our last fridge had a plumbed water supply which split causing significant damage.
Great Fridge no nonsense and very Quiet and very cold
This French door fridge offers fuss-free access to your refrigerated items. This refrigerator has tempered glass shelves, making it easy to clean any spills. The fridge volume is 333L, fitting a wide range of container sizes.
Supercool chilling case set between -3 and 0 degrees so I find it perfect for really cold beer
I still really would like an option to plumb in the ice maker and a water chiller would be great as we still have the dramas in no one refills the water or ice water container
Made in Thailand not japan but still good quality so far
