The Jenn-Air JSC23C9EEM stainless steel side-by-side refrigerator is beautifully designed, with contoured lines and hidden hinges. It is the tallest refrigerator in our review, standing 72 inches high. It has nearly 23 cubic feet of storage space, which is more than the average for side-by-side fridges. Despite its height, the Jenn-Air has a counter-depth design, which means it should stand flush with your standard-sized countertops instead of protruding. It lacks some helpful features of the best fridges, however.
Inside this side-by-side refrigerator, there are three adjustable shelves and three pullout drawers to give you a lot of storage space for your groceries. There are five door bins for additional storage, including a designated dairy compartment. One unique feature of the Jenn-Air is a bottle rack within the refrigerated section. It is designed to hold four bottles, including 2-liter bottles, on their sides.
The freezer section has an additional three adjustable shelves, two drawers and three door bins. The icemaker is located in the door so you have more room in the freezer section where the temperature remains colder. The Jenn-Air has a water and ice dispenser located in the freezer door. The dispenser also houses the temperature controls for the entire fridge, including individual temperature controls for the refrigerator drawers. You can also set an alarm to alert you when a door is accidentally left open.
While the Jenn-Air has a lot of space and amenities, it doesn’t have many of the high-end conveniences found in the best side-by-side refrigerators. For example, this model doesn’t have spill-proof shelves to make cleanup easier or a lockout feature for the water dispenser to keep kids from tampering with it. It doesn’t have quick cool or quick freeze either. This feature adjusts the temperature of your refrigerator after you open it to quickly get the internal temperature back to the set temperature, helping keep your food from spoiling.
Though it lacks some advanced conveniences, such as a quick-cool feature and spill-proof shelves, the Jenn-Air JSC23C9EEM is a large-capacity side-by-side refrigerator with a beautiful contour design. You can adjust the shelves to allow enough room for tall items, and the bottle rack can hold up to four bottles, including 2-liter containers.
