"The goal in creating our new collection was to offer the best luxury appliances available," notes Steve Brown, General Manager of Jenn-Air.  "These rankings are the latest validation that Jenn-Air is succeeding."

The Jenn-Air® model (JS42PPDUD), featuring an exterior water and ice dispenser and quoted as carrying a suggested retail price of $7,200, was ranked highest among comparable, mostly higher priced models from such super-premium brands as Miele, Sub-Zero, Thermador and Viking.

Jenn-Air® refrigerators are available in a variety of freestanding and built-in configurations, including side-by-side, bottom freezer, French door, under counter and drawer models in widths from 24" to 48".  Built-in configurations include several "fully integrated" models with an articulated hinge that allows the refrigerator to blend into cabinetry with virtually no gaps, and for doors to be opened beyond the usual 90 degree angle.

Known for its stylish finishes, Jenn-Air brand offers its refrigerators in sleek Euro-Style stainless steel or commercially-inspired Pro-Style® stainless; a warm-hued Oiled Bronze;  an ultra contemporary Floating Glass in black or white; and panel-ready models for concealing the refrigerator within cabinetry.

All refrigerators in the Jenn-Air brand collection feature Advanced Climate Control Technology and independently controlled bins to allow customized storage temperatures for highly perishable foods. A quick chill setting lowers the bin temperature below the liquid freezing point for one hour, making it ideal for quickly chilling white wine, sparkling water or other beverages. Glide-out drawers with precision ball bearings make opening and closing effortless, even when fully loaded.

Other features include shelving with a "floating" glass design, and stylish glass touch controls with white LED and LCD displays.  A removable water filter conveniently located at the base grill is easily accessible and features PUR® filtering technology.
