Amana ASD2522WRD 25 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Silver Review

The Amana ASD2522WRD is an appliance that aimed for style over performance. What a mistake that was.

$1,199.00

Introduction

If you're on a budget and looking for an appliance, you have to be very careful. There's always the risk of spending too much and getting more than you realistically need, or spending too little and getting something so bad that it wasn't worth the investment. The Amana ASD2522WRD is a refrigerator which falls more or less squarely into the latter category.

With an MSRP of just $1,199, you may be tempted to get this fairly spacious side-by-side, thinking you're getting a fancy fridge for a low price tag. What you'd actually be getting is a fridge with temperature control so poor as to be unsettling, a cheap and occasionally awkward design, and a freezer with insulation so poor that it failed our power loss test (one of only a small handful to ever do so). Even when you consider the online sale prices, which go as low as $989, the glaring flaws in this machine may lead to spoiled food and wasted money.
