product highlights
Counter Depth
Counter Depth Counter depth refrigerators have a case depth of 24 inches. They stop where your kitchen counter stops, creating a clean, built-in look at half the built-in price.
Spill Safe Shelves
Spill Safe Shelves Accidental spills inside the fridge will be contained by the rim’s design on these shelves, keeping messes from dripping down onto other contents below. Spill safe shelves also make cleaning a cinch.
Ice Maker
Ice Maker Ice is always on hand with automatic ice makers, and you no longer have to refill those pesky ice cube trays. Some refrigerators include a Quick Ice setting, and other fridges can take on a secondary ice maker in the bottom freezer drawer.
Ice Dispenser
Ice Dispenser Now you no longer have to open up the chilly freezer or break ice out of trays. Ice is conveniently dispensed from the door of your refrigerator. Many fridges have the ice maker within the door itself, freeing up storage space on shelves within the fridge or freezer.
Quick Freeze
Quick Freeze After a long trip of buying groceries for the week, you can quickly freeze ice cream that softened on the trip home, and also quickly freeze meats to ensure freshness.
Digital Temperature Control
Digital Temperature Control Choose the perfect temperature for the fridge and freezer with exact numbers in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Sabbath Mode
Sabbath Mode Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the lights, features, and controls in accordance with observance of the weekly Sabbath and high holidays.
