Kenmore 72023 24.7 Cu. Ft. French-Door Stainless Steel Review

The Kenmore 72023 is a stainless steel French door fridge that holds its own with some of the best models we've tested to date. Similar to the LG LFX31925ST and made by the same manufacturer, this Kenmore is pricier than a lot of our tested appliances, but we quickly found justification for that financial blow within our test results. It has enough storage space to satisfy the whole family during the holidays, energy savings that may make the initial hit to the wallet more bearable, and a refrigeration quality that the manufacturer can be proud of. If you've got the money and are looking to upgrade from an entry or mid-priced fridge, the Kenmore 72023 (MSRP $2349.99) is a great model to consider.

Introduction

As our tests have shown, the Kenmore 72023 is a quality appliance that earns another feather in the cap for its manufacturers. It's made by LG, and performed comparably to one of our best tested fridges, the similarly designed LG LFX31925. With an attractive stainless finish that gives it an upscale appearance, high quality performance in both the fridge and freezer, and enough room to feed members of your extended family during the holidays, this particular Kenmore is exceptional.

Folks who don't want to spend an arm and a leg may find it a tough pill to swallow—it's at the upper end of mid-range fridges, and a $2349.99 MSRP means this isn't exactly a budget appliance—but it's still more value for your dollar than many truly high-end models available today, and it's a good stepping stone from the entry-level market to top quality appliances. Since Kenmore sells only through Sears it can be tough to find a sale price, but we managed to find drops as low as $1762.49; bargains are definitely out there, and the effort needed to hunt for those deals is very much justified for a fridge this good.
