Kenmore Elite 73025 review: Design/features

Kenmore Elite 73025: Key specs

Overall capacity: 26.1  cubic feet
Freezer capacity: 7.8 cubic feet
Refrigerator shelves: 5
Refrigerator door bins: 7
Through Door Dispenser: None 

The Kenmore Elite 73025 is designed to be a great option for those with young kids, who also don't want to splash out on the added expense of integrated smart features. The smudge-proof stainless steel finish means you won't have to constantly wipe away kids fingerprints, while the pantry drawer makes for great snack storage. The lack of a through the door water dispenser may be a negative for some, but it can mean fewer spillages for those with young children. It does come with an internal ice maker for a constant supply of cubed ice.

The shelves themselves are made from thick tempered glass with thick spill captures surrounding them to keep any accidental messes from spreading. Adjustable shelves allow you to customize your storage space and two humidity-controlled crisper drawers keep produce fresher for longer.

It has fewer bells and whistles than higher-end models, like the Samsung RF23M8570SG or Bosch B36CL80SNS, but that’s why it comes at a much lower price point.

Kenmore Elite 73025 review: Performance

Reviewed.com had an overall positive view of this model. It found that the fridge section managed to maintain an even temperature, while the freezer was a little more temperamental. They found a 6 degree difference between the top and bottom of the freezer, with the area near the ice maker recording the coldest temperature, suggesting the air flow could be better. But overall, the review was positive and labelled the fridge portion as above average. 

Kenmore Elite 73025 French Door Refrigerator: User reviews

Average user reviews are 3.5 out of 5. They compliment the adjustable shelves and amount of storage space, with many particularly liking the large door compartments, one noting that it easily holds two gallons of milk. Some mention they specifically chose a model without through the door ice and water because it provides more internal storage and they haven’t been disappointed.

While a few reviews mention that this model can be noisy, others note how quiet it is, so it seems to be a problem with just some units.

A number of reviews also mention the stylish finish of this french door fridge freezer, with lots of praise for the smudge-proof finish.
