When my partner and I bought this house, appliances also came with it. Just the basic fridge, stove, and dishwasher. All older appliances that we had planned to eventually replace. Unfortunately for us the fridge decided to pick the time for us and completely died! Not a very good situation to be in when your a bit short on cash. Needless to say we ended up losing some food and managed to somehow get by with a cooler and ice over the period of 1 week while we shopped for a replacement that was affordable. There were only 3 requirements it had to have, a decent price, a decent size, and that it had a ice maker included.You would think those were easy requests and that there would be a huge amount of choices, but there wasn't. Yes there were many to choose from and most of them had great features, but for the price that the budget was set at, most places only had dorm room type that ranged from small to extremely tiny, most with no freezer at all, let alone ice maker.
So the search finally led to Brandsmart U.S.A. which was going to be it, at last! Once in the store, we met with the salesman, Mr. Padilla, who listened to what it is we were in need of and showed us several models. After looking only about 20 minutes or so, we had found exactly the fridge we were looking for and at the price we wanted!
The make and model is the Haier Refrigerator / Freezer Model HTQ21JAA in white, and is 20.7 cubic feet. It Includes bottom sliding drawers for fruits and veggies (2), a upper shelf drawer(1) for meats, the usual side door compartments, and a upper separate freezer compartment. This particular model did not include a ice maker, but the salesman threw it in at no additional fee. He also asked what side we wanted the door to swing open from, so when when the service people installed the ice maker, they could set the door as well. A 1 year product warranty and a 30 day store return policy included. If that isn't wonderful enough, they also delivered it and hauled away the old fridge too, and all for the price I have listed! They even allowed us to put down 100.00 and pay the balance upon delivery!
I admit this fridge is a bit smaller than the one we had but this Haier fridge has been a life saver, and works fantastic. Great looking, great price, and has everything we needed. So if you find yourself in a predicament like myself and need a new major appliance quick, go to Brandsmart U.S.A and check out the Haier line. It'll save you from a lot of running and headaches!
