Misleading information

The shelves in the refrigerator say they are split shelves, but they do NOT split. There is no door shelf in the freezer, as many other models have, but at least the description didn't say there was going to be a shelf.

Loving it after just a week! A welcome family addition. :)

This refrigerator is tall & big. It has deep roomy shelves that you have to reach far back to touch the back of the frig. Stores large platters easily. Wide door frig bins allow six packs of soda or bottles of any height . Dual digital temp controls for freezer & refrig with very bright illumination in both sections. Bottom freezer has a top shelf pullout with a lip on the front edge to prevent fallout. Bottom bin has a sectional slider divider that helps organize e.g. Pies/ from veg, fish, & even allows storage of tall to go soup containers too! This model is QUIET! TIP! Make sure you level your refrig. TURN OFF the annoying "open door alarm" & adjust the legs underneath to ensure the doors will gently swing closed on its own like a pneumatic arm- refer to the manual. At first I thought the shelving setup was awful until I adjusted it so the upper shelf was narrowest and the bottom was wider for milk cartons. I use the tallest shelf for infrequent items & love the accessibility of the frig on top! I use the wide pantry drawer for long veggies like celery, cux & carrots or sphaghetti noodles. BEST tip- from my old frig repairman...DO NOT BUY bottom freezer drawer models! Although popular & more models available-The door+drawer combo frames will bend over time so get the swing out door types bcuz they are more durable. they separate the door weight from the freezer drawer. A very logical & practical approach. Organize your stuff until the most usable items are front & center...plenty of room! Life is Good! Will write another update later. :)

Great Refrigerator

Plenty of space in refrigerator section.The bottom freezer would be better if it had shelves. This is not a problem for me since I have an upright Kenmore free standing freezer. Do not listen to the owners manual about only using copper tubing for ice maker. The angle of the connection works best with a good lead free flex line. My copper connection would not seat correctly. Had to add my own water filter. Not sure why Kenmore did not include one. Overall, I am very happy with this unit.

K E 24cu. ft. bottom freezer fridge

We needed to replace our 20 yr. old fridge 3 weeks ago. I did some online research and liked the features and price of the 20 cu. ft. version. I'm a visual gal so I needed to go to Sears to look at the fridges. The sales woman was very helpful and pointed out the 24 cu." was only a bit more. We love the bigger size, the light in the freezer, drawers and layout. It's quiet and works great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lots of room

Nice size and a nice variety of spaces and shelves including in the door. Love the freezer on the bottom as I use the refrigerator part more. That means a lot less bending over.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
