This is a pricey item, but well worth it.
In April, my old fridge died. We replaced it with a Kenmore Elite similar to this one (Model # 78783). I like the french doors because I don't have to open the entire fridge to quickly take out milk or juice. (The only downside is that you have to open both doors to open the deli drawer.) The ice maker is in the door, so it doesn't take away storage space from the fridge or freezer. The double freezer drawers make storage more convenient. I can store things I need daily, like frozen waffles and ice cream, in the top drawer and use the bottom drawer for larger items that I do not need as often. I feel like this also saves energy because I don't have to open the entire freezer to hunt for things.

Quality Concern
This refridgerator has an excellent design; however, the quality was very poor. It was delivered with quality issues such as the door alarm does not work and the interior light had to be repaired. One week after delivery, we are still waiting for parts to repair our brand new, expensive refridgerator...very disappointing.

This refrigerator totally rocks!

I have owned many a fridge over the years, but this one is in a class by itself.  I originally purchased a less expensive fridge of another brand, and before it was even delivered I had second thoughts. The sears salesperson made the swap for me easily and I am very glad I popped for this model.  I just moved to a new home and this fridge is a piece of art.  It looks wonderful and performs even better.  I am already noticing food that would have spoiled much earlier stays fresh for longer. It has plenty of room, varying configurations, and the lighting makes you feel as if you having a spiritual experience.  Everybody that comes into my kitchen comments on this refrigerator.  Fortunately I have an ample opening for it and the doors swing freely on both sides.  You really need to measure before you purchase or you could end up having limited use of the refrigerator doors which would degrade the usage of this unit.  

I agree with other reviewers that there are minor configuration issues with the door space, etc., but overall there is so much room there isn't really much concern for me.  I also enjoy having my freezer on the bottom as I like to eat fresh foods and tend to spend much more time in the refrigerator rather than my freezer. However, the freezer is big enough for me to stock up and buy bulk on things to save money such as grass fed beef and free range chicken. The more you buy, the lower the cost so this works out well in my case. I highly recommend this unit and it is well worth the extra money if you want a truly beautiful and efficient appliance for your home.

The sears installation crew were on time (to the minute), courteous, and professional.  They had it easy at my place as my doorways are very wide and the fridge is on the first floor.

tHE ULTIMATE IN REFRIGERATORS

THIS IS A GREAT REFRIGERATOR. IT IS VERY LARGE AND MAKES IT EASY TO FIND WHAT YOU HAVE.  i LOVE THE TWO FREEZER DRAWERS.  WE USE THE TOP ONE FOR ICE CREAM ONLY. WELL WORTH THE HIGH PRICE.  THERE IS SO MUCH ROOM  THAT I STORE MY SALAD BOWL IN IT SO IT IS CHILLED WHEN I MAKE THE SALAD FOR DINNER, BECAUSE OF ALL THE ELECTRONICS WE DID PURCHASE THE EXTENDED WARRANTY.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Elite 27.5 cu.ft. bottom freezer refrigerator-excellent

I bought my Kenmore Elite 27.5 cu.ft. bottom freezer refrigerator almost 2 years ago; no problems at all. It is quiet and besides being able to see everything so easily, it is all at your fingertips.  It is by far the best refrigerator I have ever bought.  All my appliances are from Sears - even my new freezer I bought in January.  I can count on Sears for quality and service!   When my friends and family come into my house, my refrigerator is the talk in the kitchen - it is big!! and it is awesome!! 

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Beautiful, organized, roomy, with separate temp control.

I love eveything about this Kenmore Refrigerator excep for my old Kenmore of 20 years made more ice.  The ice maker does not hold as much ice as my old Kenmore or make it as fast.  I'm finding myself waiting for it to make ice even when we have it on the "turbo ice".  But, it beautiful, it organizes you, plenty of room and I love the separate temp controls for each compartment.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I think this over all a great refrigerator

Over all we are pretty happy with our recent purchase of this refrigerator. There are only two things that we have discovered that we are not happy with...the first is the ice dispenser at moments it seems to have a mind of its own. You either get way too much ice or you don't get enough. The other issue we seem to have is the bottom crisper. It is too narrow so you are limited on what veggies you can put in it. Other then those to issues we are very happy with the fridge. It has a great amount of space and is very quit!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

expensive, but I love it

This appliance looks beautiful. The french doors and the double freezer drawers are very convenient. There is lots of room inside and in the doors. As another reviewer wrote, you have to open both doors to get to the deli drawer. I would like separate water & ice dispensers instead of having to push a button to switch back & forth -- you have to pay attention to the setting or you might get water instead of ice or vice versa. The ice comes out kind of splintered and sometimes makes a mess. The door SLAMS on its own if you're not holding it open. Despite these drawbacks, I am very pleased with this refridgerator.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Really am enjoying this futuristic addition to the kitchen

Every time I go to the kitchen and open my new fridge I keep waiting for theme music to play.  The thing is really large compared to the refrigerator of 13 years it replaced.  The stainless steel exterior gives it a very futuristic look.  I love the ice and water dispenser.  I also like the fact that the ice dispenser is easy to take apart and clean so it stays mildew free.

The comment about not having enough door space to keep your condiments is accurate.  But there is so much room in the fridge as a whole, that the few bottles that don't fit haven't been a problem for us.  I really like the drawers and trays.  My fresh fruits and vegetables are lasting longer as compared to my old fridge.  

I love the two drawer freezer.  It is so helpful for organization.  The in door ice maker is fabulous.  Gone are the days of 'garlic ice.'  Ice that has absorbed some odor/flavor from the freezer foods.

Overall very pleased with the fridge.  Can't wait for the extra capacity at holiday time.  It should come in handy.  This review comes from the perspective of a family of three.

Don't forget to measure the openings the fridge needs to come through to enter the house/kitchen.  The delivery guys were awesome.  It was a bit of a nail biter to get it in the kitchen because I failed to measure the spaces available to get it in the kitchen.  Kudos to the delivery guys for practically dismantling the thing to get it into the kitchen.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Refrigerator design concerns

Kenmore Elite 27.6 cu. ft. 4-Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator w/ Auto Close Doors.  The ice dispensor doesn't always work correctly.  I need to bang on the ice to free up the cubes.  If items are too close to the back of the unit it causes items inside the frig to freeze.  Sears replaced to computer control unit.  I still need to be careful about items to close to the back wall.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love the appearance, but condiment space inadequat

My wife and I were so impressed with the looks of our new fridge that we never gave the interior space a second look. After delivery we found that a dozen of eggs does not fit in it's intended spot in the door. Also due to the ice maker being in the door there is insufficient space for all the condiments, 2 liter drinks, milk and stuff like that.If space isn't an issue the fridge is awesome, although not quite sure it's worth what we paid.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

"Fabulous Fridge"

After shopping store to store and on line for almost 2 months, I finally purchased this Kenmore Elite. I figured this would be my last refrigerator I would ever purchase in my lifetime and wanted it to be the very best possible. My last refrigerator, a GE Profile, is now over 20 years old and still running (we put in the garage). I wanted stainless steel, with the largest storage capacity, outside water and ice, LED lighting, energy star rating. I have back problems and was afraid of the deep bottom drawer and the weight of pulling it open. This solved the problem since it has the two freezer drawers. I was afraid of the French doors, but now I can see everything inside without having to bend over. The ice machine on this one is in the door and so doesn't take up space in the fridge area. I've had my new fridge for almost a month and being a "very picky purchaser", with no hesitation sending things back, I have no complaints and will keep this beautiful appliance for many many years. Yes, expensive, but well worth the few extra dollars for a fabulous fridge.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
