The Frigidaire FPSS2677RF’s strongest feature is the amount of storage space. With a total of 25.5 cubic feet of interior space, this side-by-side refrigerator is above average in terms of capacity. It easily holds enough groceries for a large family and is decently conservative in its energy use.
The 16.5-cubic-foot refrigerator section houses three drawers, including crisper bins and a snack drawer. The crisper bins are humidity-controlled, while the three shelves are designed to capture spills so they don’t run down to other parts of the refrigerator or onto the floor, creating a bigger mess. Some of the four door bins are large enough to hold gallon-size containers, such as milk jugs, and there is a designated dairy compartment for items such as butter and cheese.
The freezer section has 9 cubic feet for storing a lot of frozen items. The drawer is an open bin that isn’t inhibited with a top, so you can store oversized groceries in it. The wire basket easily slides out so you can store and reach items quickly. This large side-by-side fridge also has an impressive four door bins in the freezer section, whereas the industry standard is three.
The door of this stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator houses the icemaker with the water dispenser. The refrigerator controls are located on the side of the same door. The controls don’t include a lockout feature to prevent children to use it when you’re not around. You can see when your water and air filters need to be replaced and the internal temperature of both the freezer and refrigerated sections.
Frigidaire includes a standard one-year warranty on parts and labor. However, where most manufacturers include an extended warranty on the sealed system, Frigidaire doesn’t. This makes the purchase of the Frigidaire FPSS2677RF a little riskier, since repairs needed beyond the first year will come entirely out of your own pocket. The refrigerator in our lineup with the best warranty is the Maytag MSS26C6MFZ.

The Frigidaire FPSS2677RF has more space than some of the other side-by-side refrigerators we reviewed, though the Samsung RS27T5200SR is roomier. It also has adjustable shelves, an open freezer drawer to accommodate large items, a snack drawer, a dairy compartment and two humidity-controlled crisper bins. While there isn’t an extended warranty with this model, it is an impressive refrigerator that is good for large families.
