Kenmore Freezers

Kenmore is the Sears brand known for reliability

Kenmore is the brand that is offered exclusively by Sears, and many people, at one time or another, have had or used a Kenmore appliance. Kenmore freezers are manufactured by Haier and Frigidaire.

Kenmore piggybacks on Sears' reputation for service and quality. Many people who purchase a Kenmore do so due to the affordability and the fact that Kenmore has many options to choose from, and also because they know that Sears has a wide network of service departments who are generally quick to respond to any problems.

Kenmore offers both chest and upright freezers, with a variety of style options as well. They have the largest number of black and stainless steel appliances to choose from to date.

Upright freezers

Kenmore has 5 stainless steel and 18 white upright freezers to choose from, ranging in size from 13.5 to 20.6 cubic feet. The price range for these uprights is $490 to $1,040. Other features that may or may not be available depending on the model include:

  • both manual defrost and frost-free types available
  • Energy Star compliant
  • adjustable shelving

Chest freezers

With 20 different models to choose from, ranging in size from 5.0 to 24.9 cubic feet, it's difficult to shop elsewhere for a chest freezer. Kenmore has two models of chest freezers that come in black, with the rest available in white only. The majority of chest freezers are manual defrost with only two being offered with frost-free technology. Prices range from $160 to $810. Other features that may or may not be available depending on the model include:

Warranties are available on all Kenmore freezers -- some have one-year limited warranty and some have one-year parts and labor warranty.

On several product-review sites, Kenmore receives very high ratings in both the product quality and service. This is one brand that seems to be reliable and remarkably consistent in its performance.
