Product Description

Kenmore 21 cu. ft. Counter-Depth Side-by-Side Refrigerator - Cool Style and Storage

Offering 21 cu. ft. of storage, the black Kenmore counter-depth side-by-side refrigerator 5178 features SmartSense™ temperature management to help keep temperatures consistent. It automatically detects a shift in temperature in the fresh food compartment, and built-in sensors adjust cooling to return food to just the right levels. The temperature-controlled bin allows you to customize this storage drawer, whether you need to chill meats or keep your vegetables crisp. This refrigerator also boasts a SpaceSaver™ ice system, which frees up 30% more space in an already roomy freezer.

  • The CleanFlow™ air filter circulates air through a charcoal filter to keep the refrigerator smelling fresh and is 15 times more effective than baking soda in reducing odors
  • With a bright LCD display and easy access, the external control panel puts temperature settings, alarm status and more within reach
  • Gallon door bins easily hold jugs, bottles and gallon containers to help clear the shelves and give you space to stock up
  • Spacious, tight-sealing and designed to control humidity, the Kenmore crisper drawer delivers fresh, crunchy fruits and vegetables, so you can stock up on produce
  • The integrated snack pan keeps treats like yogurt, string cheese and more organized and easily accessible
  • LEDs brighten corners and shelves, while offering a longer service life than their incandescent counterparts

Super Value

This frig works in my small space. It is bright inside and well organized. I like the ice maker in the door. So far it has been very quiet. It's a small unit compared to some but I don't store a lot of extra food so it works fine for my needs. It looks very stylish as well. I would highly recommend this frig to those who are trying to be economical and don't need a huge amount of space. I like it even better than I thought I would.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Reasonable value

Pros - Price for counter depth ($1018 incl tax and delivery). Cons - Doesn't display actual temps (but does show temp settings); not enough shelf height options; didn't arrive with air filter (but water filter is provided); loud compressor fan.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
