Kenmore Elite 72483

In addition to sleek design, ergonomic layout, adjustable shelves, and excellent food preservation performance, the 29.9 cu. ft. Kenmore Elite 72483 adds a separate temperature-controlled center drawer for storing everything from snacks and deli meats to wine. Though it has an external water and ice dispenser, the fridge hides all its controls behind the door, which gives the 72483 a minimal and contemporary look.

Kenmore Elite 74025

The Kenmore Elite 74025 is essentially the same fridge as the Kenmore Elite 72483, but without the additional pantry drawer. Both fridges have dual evaporators and linear compressors for improved fresh and frozen food preservation. The freezer door tilts open for easier access, and many interior shelves can be adjusted. In addition to stainless, this 29.8 cu. ft. fridge also comes in black, white, and even bisque.

Kenmore Elite 74033

The Kenmore Elite 74033 is also similar to the Kenmore Elite 74025 in every way but one: It has a door-in-door storage compartment. That gives users access to a shallow storage area within the right-hand door. It's a great place to store drinks, frequently used condiments, or snacks for kids. Otherwise, the 74033 has everything we love about the 74025, though the in-door storage eats into the fridge's usable space.

LG LMXS30786S

This four-door fridge is similar to many of the Kenmore models we recommend. That's because LG builds Kenmore's high-end fridges, including this one. The LG LMXS30786S is expensive, but combines lots of great features: a pantry drawer, door-in-door storage, and 30 cu. ft. of space. We prefer Kenmore's less-busy control panel, but we can't deny this LG has a lot of appeal. If you're a neat freak, this is your fridge.
