Kenmore Elite 24.0 cu. ft. Counter-Depth Side-by-Side Refrigerator Review$3,039.99
The icemaker is on the left door. Above this is a 7-inch touch-screen LCD which shows the status of the refrigerator, as well as allowing you to show photos, notes or sketches done with the included stylus.
The sleek stainless steel finish of this refrigerator looks great, unless you touch it. If you do, you leave behind nasty fingerprint marks which tend to hang around.
The refrigerator is controlled through a combination of the touch screen display and 6 buttons.
The large curved handle is well designed for easy opening, and looks great.
Below the LCD screen is the water and ice dispenser.
You switch to dispensing ice with the left bottom button. This also switches between cubed and crushed ice.
Water and ice are dispensed through the same opening. To the left of the opening is the holder for the stylus for the touch screen.
This refrigerator has the fridge on the right side and the freezer on the left. The refrigerator offers 4 shelves (2 of which are adjustable), a deli drawer and two fruit & vegetable trays. On the fridge door there are four shelves (2 of which are adjustable), a dairy tray and a removable can rack. On the freezer side, there are 4 trays (2 adjustable ones) and two utility drawers. On the door there are just three trays, none of which are adjustable. Most of the space on this door is taken up by the large icemaker and water dispenser. More details of these are in the usable space section of this review.
At the top of the refrigerator section is a tray and a removable bottle rack, which can hold up to 5 bottles.
Three drawers are on offer, with the top one labelled as a "Fresh Drawer". The other two are standard fruit and vegetable drawers, but with no humidity adjustment.
The water filter is located at the top left of the refrigerator compartment. This is easy to replace: just twist and pull it out.
The refrigerator door includes a dairy tray and a can rack.
There are 4 bins in the refrigerator door, which can be removed and adjusted.
The freezer area is just over a foot wide: a little cramped.
At the bottom are two utility drawers.
The icemaker storage tray takes up most of the freezer door, but there are three small bins at the bottom.
The icemaker tray is located on the freezer door. It does not hold much ice, and is very awkward to take off and replace if you want bulk ice.
The only major features on the back of the device are the water line connector and the power cable. Both of these are placed for easy connection and come with good lengths of cable and tube.
This is a counter-depth refrigerator, which means it is thinner (at 29 inches deep, not including the doors) than most.
