Foodarama

In name only. Really a side-by-side

It is just a WCI POS, also closer to 30 years old not the 10 years old the seller states.

Eh, don't knock it! It was one of the last appliances (along with maybe a chest or manually-defrosting upright freezer) that WCI could reputably build w/ the old Frigidaire/Gibson/Kelvinator/(White) Westinghouse names...

That could actually hold up better than anything you could trust to do your dishes and laundry in--and even cook with; their ever-cheapening, Taking the Short-Cut Manufacturing, 101 ranges...!

Saw one of these (a THREE-DOOR, too, I think) at my nearby Salvation Army store, though when they admittedly HAD TO let go of the Food-A-Rama moniker!

Calling That....

....A Foodarama is like seeing your favorite movie star of thirty years ago, face all puffed up and pulled back, hair thinning and dyed and the once-beautiful body thickened and stooped.

Yeah, it goes by the same name, but time has done a number on it!

P.S.: Anyone trying to get a freezer door gasket for a 30-year-old WCI product - I wish 'em lots of mazel.
