The fridge compartment has about 17 cubic feet of storage space. That number is actually a little low for large French door models, most of which offer closer to 18 or 19 cubic feet of fresh food storage space.
You'll only find three buttons on the front of the fridge -- touch sensitive icons to switch between water, ice and crushed ice. The rest of the controls are hidden up here, behind the doors. That helps Kenmore maintain a simple, streamlined look, but it also means that you can't access things like temperature settings without opening the doors.
Here are the results of that last test graphed out over 72 hours. The butter bin gets a pass for running warm (that's its job), but the purple lines representing the other shelves in the right door are too warm for our tastes, coming in at 40 degrees F or above for almost the entire test.
The Kenmore Elite 72482 has a fairly steep MSRP of $4,000, but Kenmore appliances are typically discounted pretty heavily on the Sears show floor -- more so than competing models. We've seen the 72482 for less than $3,000, which is a terrific value -- read our full review for the full story.
