Kenmore 79302 22 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer White Review$1,289.99
Even if you can't find the appliance on sale, this Kenmore will save you a bundle in your electric bill. With a yearly operating cost of $28.34 per year and a power distribution of just 0.07 kWh per cubic foot of energy, this fridge does as good a job of keeping your electric bill down as it does keeping your food fresh.
The temperature consistency in this appliance is just short of perfect. With nearly no degree fluctuation in either the fridge or freezer, you won't have to worry about an increased rate of spoiled foods or a rapid development of freezer burn. Moisture retention is substantial, meaning your fresh produce will stay that way long enough that you shouldn't have any trouble eating it all, and the freezer manages to bring items down from room temperature in enough time to offer you thawed goods of reasonable quality.
This appliance isn't cavernous, and that's okay. The space is well balanced, offering plenty of room in either the fridge or freezer, and it's spacious enough that any consumer—except maybe Octo-mom—should have enough room to store anything they might want.
The Kenmore uses a very traditional set up of half-width shelves and rear mounted hooks in the fridge. It's not the easiest design to customize, but you shouldn't have many hassles getting to food as long as you don't bury things in the back. The shelves are small enough to remove for cleaning without much a problem, too. Controls are straightforward and easy to use, as well, but the temperature settings have no correlation with any actual degree scale. You many want to buy a thermometer just to make sure that you're not making things too warm or two cold in there.
