  With two narrow side-by-side doors to the refrigerated top section and a bottom pull-out freezer drawer, the Kenmore 7160 should handle the food storage needs of most large households. It's a good choice for those who want a large capacity refrigerator without a through-the-door ice and water dispenser. It comes with LED lighting, a door-ajar alarm, a full-width pantry drawer in the fresh foods section, two humidity-controlled crispers and gallon container storage in the door bins. Like all Kenmore appliances, it is sold only at Sears, Kmart and Kenmore.com.

What People Are Saying:

The Kenmore 71603 (stainless steel) is on the 2012 Best Buy list (the highest ranking) at Consumer Reports, which rates it excellent for temperature performance, energy efficiency and noise, and good for ease of use. While there are only a few user reviews on the Consumer Reports site, they are primarily negative and complain about unreliability. However, in fewer than 20 user reviews at Sears the results are more positive, with 82% recommending this refrigerator. Satisfied users find this refrigerator spacious and attractive, and praise the LED lighting, adjustable shelving and door ajar alarm. Dissatisfied users mainly complain about difficulties in keeping the stainless steel finish clean, although one reviewer complains that the refrigerator doesn't get cold enough and another says the doors don't close easily.
