IKEA Nutid S25 S ID5HHEXWS03 25.4 Cu. Ft. / Side-By-Side / Stainless Steel Review

The IKEA Nutid S25 S ID5HHEXWS03—say that five times fast—proved to be a decent fridge that felt unusually familiar. Turns out, this product is nearly identical to the Amana ASD2522WRD.

Introduction

IKEA has a fairly substantial line of assorted appliances to complement their already well-established furniture collection. Given the company's high level of exposure, it makes sense to tackle some of their fridges and see if they hold up against the mainstream.

The IKEA Nutid S25 S ID5HHEXWS03—say that five times fast—proved to be a decent fridge which felt unusually familiar. Turns out, this product is almost identical to the Amana ASD2522WRD, a product we reviewed several weeks ago. Take away the Amana label and throw in one or two other cosmetic differences, and you've got yourself the Nutid. With strengths and weaknesses comparable to the Amana in virtually every way, this $1,299 fridge just isn't worth it when you consider the availability of other products that perform better and cost less. Plus, the odds of finding the Nutid on sale are slim to none: It's an IKEA-exclusive product, so you're only going to find it new in one place.
