Late 2012 21.5" iMac/i5/2.7GHz and 2.9GHz hashave 2 slots that accept 2*DDR3 laptop RAM, so you can fit up to 2*8GB. I don't know about any single 16GB RAM in one module that would fit on this model yet. There is talk (that's one [http://www.anandtech.com/show/7742/im-intelligent-memory-to-release-16gb-unregistered-ddr3-modules|article]) about upcoming single 16GB RAM DDR3 modules but I don't believe any is available yet.

You can verify your configuration and the amounts of available slots [http://www.everymac.com/ultimate-mac-comparison-chart/?compare=all-intel-macs|here] to see how different models compare, and you can notice that the 27" models from the same 2012 line-up have 4 easily accessible RAM slots that accept up to 4*8GB RAM. So if you require 32GB RAM at all cost, you may consider moving to a 27" model. I did make the comparison, but cannot seem to save it in a link.
 
Please note the following:
 
- This series of iMacs requires a specific kind of RAM modules marked as 1.35V. The 2*8GB Corsaire RAM modules you are buying are marked as 1.5V. It is not enough to have them "Apple Certified." I am not knowledgeable enough to recommend the exact needed type of RAM and instead advise you to check [https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/Active?search=1.35v+1.5v&csrf=tf4f45mt4g|other questions and answers about them] first and determine what is needed.
 
- To access the RAM slots on this 21.5" iMac, you will have to remove the front panel, which is not as straightforward as replacing them on a regular laptop. See this [guide|16601|guide] to determine if you are up to it and/or have the needed tools.
