Thanks to Mom Central and Frigidaire, my new Frigidaire refrigerator was delivered to my house this afternoon. I'm thrilled to be part of the Test Drive program so I can try out one of their new appliances and share my thoughts and experiences with my readers. I am still amazed and thrilled that I was chosen to participate in this program and can't quite believe I received a brand new refrigerator.
It's here now, and I am waiting for it to cool down so I can fill it with groceries. I picked up a last minute training session last night, about 20 minutes before I got the call that the refrigerator would come today. I have a great husband, so while I was gone he moved our old refrigerator into the garage with the help of a couple neighbors. By the time I came home, he had scrubbed the floor beneath the refrigerator, and left a nice clean spot for our new refrigerator.
This afternoon, the delivery truck arrived right on time, and the sweet man brought this beauty in and installed it in my kitchen. Coming off the truck, it was hot -- and I thought it was neat that we could see how hot the inside of the refrigerator and freezer were on the door! When he first plugged it in, the refrigerator was at 99 and the freezer at 98. When he left about 40 minutes later -- the temperatures had already dropped to 79 and 91.
I was impressed with how quickly it cooled down, and I can't wait for the ice! It was recommended that I let it make ice overnight, and then throw out that first batch.
So far, so good! Although I think my stove is a little jealous of the shiny stainless steel.
