Super Value

This frig works in my small space. It is bright inside and well organized. I like the ice maker in the door. So far it has been very quiet. It's a small unit compared to some but I don't store a lot of extra food so it works fine for my needs. It looks very stylish as well. I would highly recommend this frig to those who are trying to be economical and don't need a huge amount of space. I like it even better than I thought I would.

Not the best

This refrigerator looks great but is made cheap. The doors on mine do not line up and air is escaping from the freezer. I've only had the unit for less than 6 weeks and am regretting my choice. It is also a bit loud but nothing serious. My recommendation is to spend the extra money and get a better quality built refrigerator. But I know there aren't a lot of choices when it comes to counter depth.

Love my fridge!


I purchased this counter-depth refrigerator online. I was concerned with the space but I was pleasantly surprised.

Love this refrigerator


I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this Kenmore. I needed a counter depth only.  This one works the best for my kitchen layout! Ratings high! I really didn’t want a side by side but I am happy I did. Quiet, great space for only 21cu ft. The freezer ice maker on door gives you more room in freezer.  I never liked water and ice  dispenser on door but this model is great. No mess !  You will not be disappointed!

Love it, and the price


It's only been five days, but so far I'm in love with this fridge. The fit is absolutely perfect for my small galley-style kitchen, and the sleek black color looks amazing (I keep a lint-free cloth handy for fingerprints). I was worried about the layout since the refrigerator space is narrower than my last unit, but it's perfect, and very intuitive. As others have said, though, the freezer could use more shelves and/or bins. I do notice when the compressor/fan come on, so there's room for improvement in the noise department, but for a beautiful counter-depth fridge, so far I'm thrilled. And I can't believe how convenient a side-by-side is after years of hunching over a bottom-freezer digging through the bins. I'll never go back!
