Great for small kitchens
I bought this fridge because I wanted to be able to see my vegetables instead of wonder where they went on the bottom of the shelves. I thought we'd have to reverse the swing but turns out it did fit perfect and we can open it to swing right. I wish the shelves moved a round a little bit more than they do but its a happy trade off for me because they veggie and fruit drawers of a good size. The ice maker in the freezer keeps up with us and I like the pull out drawers. I would like more space in the bottom freezer but I think that's because we have a lot of frozen things, not because there is a lack of room. We will probably end up getting a small deep freezer for the basement to store the meat we have to freeze.

Buyer beware--Impossible to get handle reversed without damaging door!!!
When I saw this fridge in the store I thought it was the perfect solution to our "small space" problem. The interior is configured great for us and I was excited to get it...until it was delivered with dents in the door. Our kitchen required left-hand swing, which I thought would be no problem since it's advertised as reversible. Technically, it's true that it reverses, but apparently it comes from the factory with right-hand swing and has to be switched at the warehouse. This leaves dents all along the door where the handle was initially situated. They sent out a replacement, but that one was worse, so we wound up keeping the first one. Wish I could just refuse it altogether and get my money back, but I've shopped around enough to know there is not another brand available with the configuration I want that will work given the space constraint we have. In short, as long as you can use the right-hand swing as it comes from the factory, it seems to be a great fridge, but don't buy it if you'll need to have the door swing reversed!

Good buy, just a couple of minor glitches

This is a good refrigerator, and I would recommend it. Just a couple of nits to pick. Both doors, and the freezer drawer, are just a tad difficult to close. By "difficult" I mean that if you push either door almost, but not quite, hard enough to get it closed, the magnets not only don't pull the door the rest of the way closed, the hinges actually resist those last two inches and you end up having to go back and push the door again. And when the freezer drawer is out it feels like it's stuck in a little ditch and you have to yank on it a little to get it rolling inward. I wish the engineers had put just a little more effort into that small matter. But overall the shelves and drawers are well laid out and it keeps things plenty cold enough. In fact, I had to turn it up from 37 to 39 to keep ice crystals off the top of my water jug. My last fridge kept ice cream just a little mushy. This one keeps it nice and hard. So I would happily buy another one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice look, quiet!

This is really a nice refrigerator. Lots of room on top, but I think the bottom freezer is to small. The ice bucket takes up half the top shelf. The bottom bin is a little hard pulling out and back in. Overall though it looks nice and is very quiet which is a plus for me. A little big for my space, but it was the best one we found that would fit to a degree. Would recommend it to a friend, but if your a freezer queen like myself you may want to get something with a bigger freezer. Now thinking about getting a chest freezer for my basement.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Refrigerator

This is a refrigerator with the freezer section on the bottom. It is very roomy and much better than a side by side refrigerator freezer. I have had two side by side refrigerators for the past 39 years and I am very pleased with this new Kenmore Refrigerator.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Nice!

I fell in love with this refrigerator as soon as I saw it. I was looking for a bigger capacity then my 18 cubic foot, but it can't be too wide. This refrigerator fit the bill! I love the sleek modern look and the LED lights inside are so bright! The cold cut draw runs the whole width of the refrigerator. The fruit and veggie drawers are clear and pull out easily, as do the freezer drawers. Very happy with this purchase!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Fridge

Although it is a smaller fridge than what we originally had, it uses the space better. Had room left over after moving everything into the new fridge. The freezer space is a little small, and can be difficult to find what your looking for. The people that delivered the fridge, delivered the fridge an hour ahead of time which was great. Overall satisfied customer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Bottom Freezer

I've always wanted a bottom freezer model. Couldn't be happier with it. The delivery man could have been more knowledgable.
