Gold® 26 cu. ft. Resource Saver™ Side-by-Side Refrigerator

Ratings

You're careful to pick the best looking fruits and vegetables. Now you can see your handiwork thanks to the multipoint white LED lighting in the most efficient Resource Saver™ 26 cu. ft. side-by-side refrigerator ever. Using less energy than conventional bulbs, the system casts a more natural light from the front to reduce shadows. Plus the built-in sensors of the 6th Sense™ technology temperature management system automatically adjust cooling to return food to the desired temperature in half the time, while the Adaptive Defrost system defrosts the freezer only when necessary, which saves energy. Now that should shed some light on the subject of freshness.
