Maytag Side by Side Refrigerators

Here are the top Maytag Side by Side Refrigerator Models

Maytag Side by Side Refrigerators are quite similar in quality and price to models made by GE, LG, or Amana, but Maytag stands alone with a number of popular side by side refrigerator models that rate well with consumers.

As there are so many Maytag Side by Side Refrigerators to choose from, we looked to narrow down the field by covering only those refrigerators to help you decrease the number of refrigerator reviews and refrigerator ranks you need to cover.

Best Rated Maytag Side by Side Refrigerators

The models Maytag offers vary greatly depending on your price range, style considerations and feature set. There are a number of features you may want to consider, everything from ice/water dispensers to crank adjustable shelving (shelving that you can adjust higher or lower simply with the turn of a small hand crank).

Here are the side by side refrigerators we recommend from Maytag:

1. The Maytag MZD2666KES

MSF22C2EX Maytag 21.8 Cu. Ft. Wide Side By Side Refrigerator - Stainless Steel, White or Black

OVERALLIt's definitely one of the small Maytag Side by Side Refrigerator models, but it has a sleek, modern styling and a feature set normally seen in much higher priced refrigerators.

PROS: Here's what we found:

  • The FreshLock™ Crispers might not seem like the most exciting feature, but the drawers definitely add life to all of your produce, saving you money in the long run.
  • The QuietSeries™ package still makes the Maytag models some of the quietest refrigerators on the market.
  • The Store-N-Door Ice Dispensing System™ maximizes your interior space by not sacrificing too much room for a bulky ice machine and water dispenser unit. Meaning, this frees up your top shelf in your freezer!
  • Another goofy feature that we liked were the smaller ice cubes produced by the in-door ice machine. Gives every beverage a touch of class.

    CONS: The spill catcher shelves had a slight gap where the glass meets the plastic that food and spilled items might catch in over time. The ice machine makes odd/spooky noises when it runs at night. Important to note if you have young kids who's bedrooms might be somewhat close to the kitchen!
    MSRP: $1499.00

  • 2. The Maytag MSD2652KES (aka MSD2652KEU)

    MSD2652KES Maytag 26 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator w/ Electronic Ice/Water Dispenser - UltraFinish Steel

    OVERALL: One of the benefits of Maytag being a part of the Whirlpool family, is that they can blend the best of all worlds into a single refrigerator model. This is one of the most affordable in this class and the feature list is as long as Billy the Kid's rap sheet!

    PROS: Here are a few of the things we thought made this refrigerator worth looking at:

    • The electronic cubed/crushed ice and water dispenser also has a water filter change reminder and lock.
    • The Radius Styling gives this Maytag refrigerator a smooth design for an added touch of style.
    • The Textured doors and cabinet minimize fingerprints.
    • The top to floor foam insulation on this unit makes it extremely energy efficient and it's also ENERGY STAR qualified which means it exceeds federal energy efficiency standards by 15%. As you are aware that will decrease your energy bills but you may also be surprised to know that buying an Energy Star refrigerator entitles you to an Energy Star Rebate.
    • This unit also has the Adjustable Spill-Catcher™ shelves which has the sealed edges that help contain spills for quick and easy cleanup.
    • The EasyGlide™ shelves glide out so items in the back can be retrieved easily. CONS: The ice maker in this unit was also a bit slow. We found this pretty much across the board with the Maytag models.

    • 3. The Maytag MSD2656KES

      MSD2656KES Maytag 26 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Refrigerator - Stainless Steel

      OVERALL: This is one of the few Maytag refrigerator models that Consumer Reports rated quite highly on their list. We have to agree; it's a solid side by side refrigerator model and definitely one to consider.

      PROS: While this model contained many of the regular features, here's a few other ones that caught our eye:

        Maytag MSD2656KES Side by Side Refrigerator

      • One fun feature was the Refrigerator Pak beverage organizer which securely holds most 12-pack beverage boxes for easy dispensing.

      • The Sealed FreshLock Crisper drawer was one of the best in this class at keeping food fresher longer.

      • It also has Beverage Chiller™ compartment which keeps drinks colder than the rest of the refrigerator.

      • The Adjustable Spill-Catcher™ shelves have sealed edges that contain spills for quick and easy cleanup.

      CONS: The factory installed icemaker was just so-so at making ice and this fridge was a bit noisier than was expected.

      Four Things to Consider

      When you're looking at a Maytag Side by Side Refrigerator, there are a few things you'll want to take into consideration before making your purchase.

      1. Capacity Needs: Most Maytag Side by Side models have about 25 cubic feet of storage space. You'll need to figure out just how much storage space you'll need. Questions to ask are is your family growing or shrinking? The standard rule of thumb is about 10 cu. sq. feet per two people.

      2. Style Choices: Maytag refrigerators are all in all well styled models that give any kitchen a decorative boost. But you need to consider what type of fridge will go best with your existing decor. Keep in mind that Maytag side by side refrigerators come in Stainless Steel, Black, White, and Bisque only. If you're looking for built in panels or more custom colors, you may want to consider refrigerators from Jenn Air or Kitchenaid instead.

      3. Efficiency: Maytag Refrigerators are for the most part, all Energy Star Compliant. In this time of climate change, this is definitely an issue we should all take into consideration. Not to mention the fact that it will decrease your electric bill as well as make you eligible for an Energy Star Rebate

      4. Durability: Although Maytag was once synonymous with reliability, the brand has honestly had their troubles over the past five years or so. However, they have since turned a corner since being acquired by Whirlpool in 2006. Maytag is once again a strong brand in the reliability category.

      If you have any questions on any other considerations you should take into account before purchasing a new refrigerator, be sure to check out our Refrigerator Buying Guide which will help you find the Best Refrigerator for your specific needs.
