Back in February, Mr. Ivy and I bought a new fridge. Actually, I bought it. For some reason, he wasn't available the day we decided we had to get rid of the old one. (It was freezing EVERYTHING, especially the milk.)
Fast forward into summer and -- gosh darn it, didn't we wish we still had old Mr. Freezer Fridge, because now our milk is constantly going bad. I don't mean one or two before their sell-by dates, I mean ALL OF IT.
The new fridge has these really big door shelves that will hold a gallon container of milk. Great. Except the milk is always warm. Not great.
So now we've moved the milk from the really convenient place, and put it on one of the shelves, where stuff usually gets shoved in front of it. Then we have to search to get the milk out for stuff like adding to coffee or recipes. Not very convenient.
Truth be told, we just don't like this new fridge. It's too small. The guy at the appliance store assured me this was THE standard size fridge, but it isn't. The next time I was in the store I looked a bit harder and saw that there are quite a few taller ones. (Of course they were all stainless steel and cost about $500 more, but that's beside the point.)
Well, at least the milk isn't going bad anymore.
Have you bought an appliance that didn't live up to its hype?
