All I want for Christmas is…Kenmore! {#TestedTales}

This past weekend, I was blessed to be one of 22 bloggers flown in, on an all expense paid trip to Chicago, to visit the Kenmore Craftsman Brand Live Experience. I knew we were going to be drinking in a lot of information on the latest developments for the Brand but what I didn’t expect was to leave Chicago with a pining to own one (or all…sigh, if only!) of the appliances I have featured below.

So yeah, while I haven’t been asked to write about any of this, I’m sharing to drop subtle hints to my sweet husband.


All I want for Christmas is…Kenmore


What I want for Christmas-Kenmore 33 cubit fridge


There are two appliances I fell head over heels in love with. And since Hubs and I like buying practical Christmas gifts for our home rather than for each other, both would make perfect additions to our “Help Mama” line at home!


Number 1 on Mama’s list: The Kenmore 33 cu. feet French Door Refrigerator


Kenmore Elite  33 cu. ft. French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator - Stainless Steel  ENERGY STAR®


Here are 8 reasons why I absolutely love this fridge:

1. The Grab and Go access doors that allow you to open a segment of the fridge door and not the whole door, thereby conserving loss of fridge temperature.

2. The airtight humidity crisper drawer that preserves veggies longer. God only knows how many organic greens I’ve had to throw out because they wilted or got mushy quickly, before use!

3. 2 adjustable slide in-slide out shelf racks that accommodate larger bottles, vessels or containers. (Perfect for when you’re storing stuff for parties!)

4. More space on the upper shelf as the ice-maker in this fridge lies hidden within the left door.

5. 2 mini convenience bins that make use of otherwise unused space in other fridges. (Perfect for storing medicine bottles, grab and go snack packs for the kids etc)

6. A 3 level freezer that allows you store so much more! (Perfect for use when you stock up organic meat and veggies when on sale.)

7. A separate temperature controlled pantry drawer (Great for storing all those highly perishable items like cheese, deli meat etc.)

8. Dedicated air filters that ensure the fridge remains smelling fresh always. (Learnt that placing an opened box of baking soda in the fridge does not help. Oh well!)


Kenmore 2013


I haven’t personally used this refrigerator in my home but do hope that day will come sometime soon.

I’m going to keep my eyes peeled on those Sears appliance sales, to jump onto a great deal when it comes up!

Number 2 on Mama’s list: The Kenmore Elite Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner.


The Kenmore Elite Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner.


So here’s what makes this a swell vacuum…

1. It’s the most powerful vacuum cleaner out there with a 182 watt power suction.

2. A sturdy bag to hold in the dust even when full!

3. Adjust to 4 height levels.

4. Easy to maneuver.

5. Effectively suctions off dirt from bare floors  and carpets. (The infrared, LED light sensor detects areas where dust has not been picked up, so no more excuses for dirty floors!)

6. Comes with a handy pet handimate accessory that works well to remove those stray and stubborn pet hairs.

7. The vacuum has been approved by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and is said to absorb 99.7% of allergens in the home.

8. The flexible hose can affix the included accessory to even clean your ceiling fans effectively.


This is definitely a more affordable, investment worthy alternative to a bulky, expensive Kirby, wouldn’t you say?

Tell me which between the two appliances you would love to see under your tree and why?



  1. Now this is the kind of Christmas I want, that Fridge looks Perfect!! I love how much room it has and the double doors…. swooning!!!

  2. I’d like to see the fridge! We are quickly out-growing the one we have in the house (we have a second in the garage) and it would look BEAUTIFUL in my space! 😀

    I am SO GLAD you had a great time!!!

    1. We’ve outgrown ours too, thus the subtle (or not so subtle) hints to Hubs. This one has some great features so I’m really hoping they have some crazy rock bottom sale at Sears!
      (I had an awesome time. Will share more over the week but thanks again for all the encouragement.)

  3. I would love to have the new frig. We desperately need a bigger nicer frig in our home. Thanks for these reviews.

  4. I love that fridge! mostly because it has a bottom freezer, which I have always loved, but also because it is so beautiful with the stainless steel outside. Wow. I think I’m in love.

  5. You mean I have to pick one?! LOL!! AWESOME post and overview about what these can do! When they were showing that fridge I was so impressed with the freezer space – can you say “Once a Month Cooking”? I also want one of the vacuums with the Pet Mate attachment – I don’t even have pets, but I use my vacuum to clean my couch so I think that would be really helpful. Love your photos!!

    1. Ha! I don’t have pets too and thought that was such a handy attachment to have too. Lol! My fave feature in the fridge has to be the crisper. Oh and the three tiered freezer compartments too!! Wouldn’t be awesome to find these in our homes on Christmas Day?

  6. I’m quite the practical girl myself so I respect that you and your husband buy things for your household rather then gifts for yourself; a diamond necklace can only go so far but a quality fridge or vacuum pay for themselves in every way 365 days of the year! ^.^

    That fridge does look pretty incredible! I don’t blame you for putting it on your want list and dropping some not-so-subtle hints to your hubby. LOL

    1. Agreed! We do the same for birthday gifts and honestly, I love it. 2 years ago I bought an awesome Christmas Tree for my birthday and last year it was a KitchenAid mixer. Both are gifts I love, love, love!!!

  7. Ummm i’ll take what your having?! LoL That fridge is Ah-mazing and that vacuum seems pretty awesome too!

  8. Sounds like you had an amazing time. I’d choose the refrigerator. We could definitely use a new one.

    1. Right? And that totally saves up space on the top left hand corner of the fridge, so more space to stock stuff in!

  9. I want that refrigerator and as I was reading your list of reasons why you liked it, I kept thinking yes, I need that feature and that one and that one and so forth. I need that fridge!

    1. I’m sure you meant dryer but a driver would be neat to chauffeur the kids around instead of mom, right 😉

      1. Ha! Yes, I did mean dryer, but I would take a driver, plus a cook, a maid and a gardener too! 🙂

  10. I WOULD LOVE THAT refrigerator!!! And we need a new microwave. I could handle that for sure!

  11. Oh my….
    That ‘fridge would look Uh.Maze.Ing in my kitchen!! Not just kinda cool… super cool!

  12. we just got a new fridge last year but I wish I’d opted for the one with that snack bar pull out – those mini concierge drawers look great!

  13. I’d love to see the The Kenmore 33 cu. feet French Door Refrigerator under my tree! It looks so spacious and will hold a lot more than my current fridge!
