Stainless Steel Kenmore ELITE (44723) Counter-depth "Freezerless" Refrigerator (16.7 cu. Ft.)
The Kenmore 44723 is a COUNTER-DEPTH freezer-less refrigerator in the Kenmore’s Elite range which provides 17cu ft of cold storage. It comes in a stylish smooth stainless steel and is both good looking and functions well. The Kenmore 51032 has lovely ENHANCED LIGHTING, which eliminated those darkest places that are sometimes missed – giving even great flexibility and access, even when the fridge is crammed full.
I should be noted that this model is NOT Energy Star compliant.
This model also has an enhanced SOUND REDUCTION feature that significantly reduces operating sounds.
HUMIDITY CRISPERS mean that food stays fresher and lasts longer.
Three ADJUSTABLE easy-clean GLASS SHELVES and clear plastic food drawers means that accidental spills are easy to mop away.
The storage bins in the door are ADJUSTABLE which enable you to store containers of varying heights and shapes.
There is a MATCHING FREEZER unit that can be purchased separately, for those that are on a budget and wish to add to their cold storage options at a later date.
It is easy to clean the exterior and FINGER MARKS do not show up.
This refrigerator comes in a lovely STAINLESS STEEL finish and has a smooth contoured door.
This only comes in one finish/ color – Stainless Steel.
Total Volume: 16.7 cu. ft.
This is a really good-sized refrigerator with good storage space.
There are many ways to organize the food stored in this freezerless cold pantry, as there is a VARIETY OF SHELVING and crispers, including
3 adjustable glass shelves, which are always an advantage.
This model has DUEL CRISPER bins and lots more good storage options including a deli drawer and some good, flexible door storage.
This is also a very SPACIOUS refrigerator.
There is REDUCED STORAGE at the bottom of this fridge.
The door bin is rather DEEP, which can cause difficulty if retrieving items.
This is NOT an Energy Star rated refrigerator so does not have the benefit this affords - nor does it have any air filtration or advanced cooling system.
There is no option to alter the side that the handle is placed and there are NO WHEELS, which make it difficult to move for cleaning purposes.
