When does 28 cubic feet of space feel like 29? It comes down to usable capacity. The Kenmore Elite 28 cu. ft. Trio refrigerator can store an impressive 465 cans of soda - 51 more cans than the competition's 29 cu. ft. refrigerator and more than any other leading brand of ice and water-dispensing, bottom freezer refrigerator. Due to the innovative design of the Slim In-Door Icemaker, the new Kenmore Elite Trio Ice and Water Refrigerator combines practical capacity with chic design elements.

  Key Elite Trio features include:
  --  Flawless and sleek design features including redesigned, elegant and
      easier-to-grip handles on stylish, contoured doors with hidden hinges.
  --  Full-color LCD display and intuitive SmoothTouch controls are
      convenient to select temperatures and settings.
  --  Multiple-level interior LED lighting saves energy and provides a sleek
      look and feel.
  --  Slim In-Door Icemaker, tucked inside the door, allows storage in the
      door and 100% top shelf storage, providing more usable space and an
      organized interior.
  --  Tilt-N-Take freezer drawer provides for convenient access to frozen
      foods without pulling out the entire drawer and can also hold up to 88
      lbs. of food, thanks to the robust geared rail system.
  --  An airtight crisper helps retain moisture in vegetables longer.
      Vegetables stored in the airtight crisper dry out four times slower
      when compared to a standard crisper bin.
  --  Multi Air Flow Technology circulates fresh, cold air evenly into every
      nook and cranny to keep all the contents of the refrigerator chilled
      properly, so Jell-O molds set firmly without freezing the milk.
  --  New GeniusCool™ Technology provides smooth, quiet operation and
      exceeds ENERGY STAR® guidelines.

Additionally, innovative cubed ice fits easily into glasses to keep drinks on the rocks. The Kenmore Elite 27 cu. ft. Side-by-Side refrigerator provides a sleek, stylish look with contoured doors and a flush, integrated, tall dispenser that makes it easy to fill pitchers, coffee pots and water bottles while virtually disappearing into the door.
