Bosch B26FT70SNS 25.9 Cu. Ft. French Door Stainless Steel Review

While the Bosch B26FT70SNS is certainly a nice fridge, it's not quite worth the $2,835 MSRP. If you can find it on sale give it a closer look, but keep in mind that there are cheaper alternatives that offer the same level of quality.

Introduction

Even high-end fridges can be broken down into a spectrum from lower quality to the very best. The Bosch B26FT70SNS is a stainless steel French door fridge that happens to fall somewhere in the middle, with decent performance, very good storage capacity, and a less-than-flawless user experience. It's a average high-end fridge whose flaws balance well with its strong points, though the high price tag—we're talking about an MSRP of $2835—may scare away consumers looking to get the most bang for their buck. There are sale prices available, but the best we found online only dropped it to about $2500. It's certainly a high-quality fridge, but compared to the very best, it comes up just a little short.
