Amana Corporation is an American manufacturer of home appliances. It was founded in 1930s and later on became the Amana Refrigeration, Inc. and is owned by Whirpool today.
First they made freezers and refrigerators, but then they started making air conditioners and finally a range of different appliances like ovens, ranges dishwashers etc. Their refrigerator works well for those who have to be careful about expenses. Most of their models are Energy Star qualified and they save a considerable amount of money you would usually spend on utility bills.
They offer different warranties on their refrigerators. Most refrigerators come with a 1 year warranty on parts and labor, but there are possibilities of expanding that warranty for a longer period of time.
They are obliged to repair or replace any faulty part during the time of the warranty. Owners of their refrigerators often complain that their customer service is not easily reached and are frequently unable to help them with simple problems. For example, how to turn off the ice-maker.
User manuals are available on their websites, and are not complicated to read. However, these manuals do not have thorough troubleshooting sections.
Their refrigerators are available in different colors and offer different sizes of storage space along with modern designs that can emphasize the beauty of any kitchen. Every Amana refrigerator has an antimicrobial coating and the refrigerator has five adjustable shelves that enable you to adjust the space according to your needs and wants. They also offer two humidity-controlled crispers. You can keep fruits and vegetables in those crispers and don’t have to worry about keeping them freash, because each crisper comes with a separate control.
Don’t forget about the storage of pizzas, cheeses and lunchmeats, because these refrigerators offer storage space for them too. In spite of all these potentially wide storage features, there are reports that some Amana refrigerators’ and freezers’ layouts can be quite illogical.
For example, some models can’t store more than two pitchers or more bottles of wine. Pull-out lower drawers can easily accommodate large treys and boxes.
Freezers offer adjustable shelves which help with the organization of frozen foods. Some people find this helpful, while others find it difficult to search through the layers of foods. Water and ice dispensers offer cold, filtered water and ice with just a touch of the button. Ice-maker can be a bit noisy sometimes, but it is quick and very efficient. Futhermore, the water and the ice taste great.
Amana also believes that small things cause big impacts, so they try to do a little more with the environment. They partnered up with Trees for the Future, and plant a tree for every major appliance they sell in the US.
All in all, Amana offers good quality refrigerators with decent features. There are models with some quirks, but overall their refrigerators are good, affordable and can provide the storage space you need. The refrigerators provide you with excellent energy efficiency and can meet the needs of your family.
