  • Enjoy CLEAN WATER when you need a glass with the INTERIOR Water Dispenser, which dispenses water purified by PuR Water Filtration System.
  • The AUTOMATIC Ice Maker gives you a constant supply of ice for cold drinks in the summer and removes the need to use important SHELF SPACE for water bottles.

      Exterior Features

  • The unit sports a monochromatic stainless steel exterior that gives it a polished, Sophisticated LOOK. It sports a bottom freezer design that makes it suitable for those who want to place more fresh food items at EYE LEVEL.
