Kenmore Elite Upright Freezer – Storage in Style

Organized to help you store more, this Kenmore Elite 2809 upright freezer easily accommodates large shopping lists. Loaded with smart features like specially designed temperature zones and rapid freezing, it tailors temperatures to suit your storage needs. Easily adjustable shelves help deliver customized organization, while electronic controls offer precision climate adjustment with just a touch. This Kenmore freezer brings dependable storage home.

  • A spacious interior means better organization, easier access and more storage options, which makes this freezer perfect for pizzas, ice cream, fish, meats and bulk buys.
  • From meats and fish to fresh vegetables from the garden, Quick Freeze speeds the preservation process by dropping temperatures rapidly, locking in both color and flavor.
  • An on-door Soft Freeze Zone is slightly warmer than the rest of the freezer, making sure your ice cream is always ready to eat.
  • Slide-out baskets keep smaller, daily necessities within reach to simplify storage and make moving easy when it’s time to reach deep.
  • A wide, narrow pizza shelf boosts organization by creating a spot specifically for pizzas and similarly shaped items like ice cream cakes and frozen entrees.
  • Designed to hold temperatures steady, prevent tampering and keep kids out of trouble, the control lockout option delivers an extra layer of security against spoiled food.
  • Enhanced air flow design channels cold air, around, over and across your freezer’s contents for superior refrigeration, balanced performance and consistently frozen foods.

This is one great freezer.
We love this freezer. The noise level is average and hardly noticable. The features and the space are great and I couldn't find anything close for the $670. It looks great and we like the temperature display on the front to reassure you that all is well. We would recommend this freezer to any family that wants to buy bulk and store it all in one place. A great money saver in power, too. You can't go wrong unless you have a library quiet household and then you might notice the compressor cycling. The adjustable shelves make for easy storage of just about everything. She loves the ice cream storage shelf. Talk about easy to scoop, the temp. is perfect. Bottom line; We did some research and this was the best bang for the buck that we could find at the time. Enough said.

Runs & Runs & Runs
After delivery and plug in , freezer started lowering tempature rapidly. But , eighteen hours later it stopped at our 8 degree setting . It took a breather for 20 minuttes and started again , cycling on & off the rest of the night . The next morning we lowered the temp 3 degrees and 5 hours later it stopped again and started cycling on & off again . I called the help line and was told this was normal for the energystar appliances ! And , yes you can hear it running from the next room . If you are looking for an appliance that runs all the time , this is the one for you ! If you see a energystar sticker on something -- RUN Away!

Excellent bargain

This freezer has lots of options for storage on the door as well as in bins and shelves, making it easy to customize for my family. I love the temperature display on the door, and having the alarms. We tend to keep a freezer full, and wouldn't want to lose all that food because we didn't realize there was a problem.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great freezer! reliable

This is the second time I bought this and so far it held up well. The bottom basket broke but that may be because I overstuffed it or was too rough with it.I had the first fridge for 2 years and I sold it instead of taking it across the country. When I looked into upright freezers again, I bought the same one. I don't use the extra dividers enclosed. I find they take up more space than help with organization. But everything else works great so far into the 3rd year of owning this freezer again.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

happy cus liz

I have had this freezer since october of 2013 and I absolutely love it. It is huge and very attractive. I love the glass shelves and the ice cream door keeps the ice cream really soft. I really like the door alarm and I am surprised that I can hear it in my bedroom, although both are on the same level. I've never had a problem with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

impressed

I had a large chest freezer that needed replacing and chose an upright this time. The freezer is very spacious. I was able to organize the space so much better. When deciding on which model at the store, I am glad we chose this model for the extras, glass shelving, pizza storage, full and organized door shelves. In the instruction packet it said that the noise volume could be loud, it has not been too loud. It freezes fast and well. I like the display on the ourside of the freezer telling the temp too. I would recommend this freezer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Super upright freezer

Got it today and really like all the storage options. Glass shelves are a real plus and the basket retainers work in this freezer. Very pleased with the options for setting up the freezer. Proper installation is required to prevent compressor to run long. After 6 hours of running, I checked the manual for setup and then the freezer It was too close to the wall in back and requires at least 3 inches of space for air flow. I set it to 3.5 inches and the compressor stopped running shortly afterwards. Also, the freezer wasn't leveled by the book and I leveled it to 1/2 bubble high in the front so the door will close automatically. Those two changes stopped the compressor from running. Mine is in the laundry room and I would not put this freezer in a living space where the noise can be heard. It shouldn't run that much, but it could be annoying if it runs because the proper spacing for ventilation is not used. Really glad I picked this one as it only uses $73 bucks a year of electricity. Very low.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great freezer

I love this freezer. It's got great shelving. The alarms are great (especially with young children). The size is perfect for our family of 5. My intent is to use it for meat and vegetables. I love the soft freeze zone in the door. It's perfect for ice cream and butter.. Highly recommend this product!

Kenmore Elite

We are pleased with our upright freezer. It has excellent storage space with added items for separation of certain foods, even a special space for keeping ice cream at the right temperature--not too hard. The only thing I would mention otherwise is that it is noisy. We have it in the garage so the noise does not bother us, but it would be too noisy for the kitchen.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Upright

The Kenmore upright 20.6 cu ft freezer was delivered as promised. The freezer and packaging were in excellent condition. Unpacking was a breeze as was the installation and start up. All instructions were clear and concise. The freezer cooled down quickly and has been working superbly. The layout of the shelving and dividers allow for the best use of space. Am extremely pleased with this purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
