The two doors on the refrigerator allows you to open the unit partially without opening the entire refrigerator to the warmer room temperature. The two freezer drawers allows you to sort your freezer goods with the top drawer for short time utilization and the bottom drawer for longer term storage. The ice maker is the only thing that has given us trouble.
The Kenmore Elite 31.0 cu. ft. Dual Freezer French Door Bottom freezer is extremely well made and energy efficient. I enjoy the many features and the storage space is amazing for the size. They did a great job designing this outstanding refrigerator.
I simply LOVE my refrigerator! It provides me with the space I need and lots of options for storing food and beverages!
Very nice fridge, however..... I only paid $1799. at Sears 4 months ago. If you buy this fridge you will like it alot. I do!
There is a lot of room in this refrigerator and I love the dual-freezer. I previously owned a side by side and things would get lost in the freezer. With the two drawers I can organize the items such as in the bottom drawer meat on one side and veggies on the other and the top drawer extra ice, fruit and ice-cream.
It was too big for our space. I loved the double drawer at the bottom and the look and finish of the refrigerator, but it had to be returned. The depth of it is one of the largest and it stuck out about 6 inches from out counters so it looked unsightly. Otherwise, great refrigerator and when we purchased it, it was on sale 35% off.
We could not be happier!! Absolutely love the two drawers. Adjustable shelves are great. Huge capacity thanks to smart design. Crisper keeps things at their best much longer. Fantastic how easy to move for regular cleaning -really great rollers so feels like it doesn't weigh anything. Just can't say enough good things.
I thought this was an excellent refrigerator. It has plenty of room, great look, quiet and good ice maker. However, after three weeks a foul smell was coming from the bottom of the refrigerator. Ultimately, you could smell it as soon as you come in the kitchen. On-line reviews show the same complaints, but the company has no remedy. I was lucky the smell started early, so I could return it. Others indicate it started a year or so into ownership. Beware.
Our original side by side refrigerator lasted 13 years and we are hoping this one will also do as well. The only problem we have experienced with this is the ice maker clogs up if not used daily. We used crushed once and it appeared to left the unused crushed in the trap and it did not melt so when we attempted to use it no ice came out. Upon investigation we cleared the trap which was also on the bucket when we removed it that the ice went all over the floor. A mess but nothing a towel doesn't pick up. The storage is great and we are able to quickly see all items needed for the meal. Would recommend this to all just be careful with ice.
It has all the features and specs, but when it comes time to use it, just seems to leave you wanting. I have had mine for a year, and am already on my second service call. The ice gets stuck from time to time, and now the lever for ice/water gets stuck on a few extra seconds when you push it, leading to ice and water on the floor. There are constantly water spots on the stainless steel, so I spend more time polishing than expected, and oh by the way, magnets do not really stick to it, so there are no pictures or kids drawing to cover the "mess". The freezer drawers were a big draw, but anything sticking up slightly prevents them from closing. Space inside is also odd. Coming from a side by side, I still have not adjusted after a year of use. There is not enough vertical space for tall items, so we set some shelves higher, still have a tight fit, and can only half use the others. The Kenmore Elite brand does little to cover this is just an LG made refrigerator. I recommend with hesitation: if you have a French door or Stainless Steel already, you know what you are in for.
