We use this fridge as our main fridge. We keep all of our fruits/veggies/milk/cheese in it. We keep meat in the freezer part. I use the ice machine many times daily, no problems so far. Sometimes guests push the ice instead of water, so there can be a mess on the floor for guests that do not know how to use yet. Other than that, I love it! Some fingerprints show, but quickly wipe off.
