  Relatively slim for a French-door refrigerator, the Kenmore Elite 7103 will slide into a 33" opening and should provide adequate food storage for an average family. It comes with a factory-installed ice maker and a through-the-door dispenser for filtered water and crushed or cubed ice; a full-width temperature controlled deli/meat/pantry tray; and adjustable shelves and door bins for flexible interior organization. At slightly more than 69" high it's taller than most refrigerators that fit in a 33" opening, so it might be necessary to raise or remove any kitchen cabinets above the refrigerator space. Like all Kenmore appliances, it is sold only at Sears, Kmart and Kenmore.com.
