    Great Looks, Deficiences Inside

    Doors, Ease of use, Shelving

    I've only just received this fridge, so it is far too early to determine long-term reliability. I previously had a side-by-side KitchenAid that failed after 3-years and had to be replaced, so I opted for this French Door design. It's my first french door, and I must admit that the added fridge space is quite impressive. Onto the review: Exterior style is quite impressive. While it looks almost 'odd' to not have exterior water/ice, it also creates a very clean look and I'm hoping the trade-off of added interior space, greater ice capacity and long-term ice/water reliability is worth it. Interior is rather 'basic' for such an expensive fridge, with simple shelving, exposed screw heads (in both the fridge and freezer), visible 'plumbing' (ie. you pull out the crisper drawers and you see the hoses behind it), and just two LED lights shining from the top. There are no fancy features: no temperature controlled cooling drawer (it is fully manual, meaning you just twist a dial to open or close cooling vents - that's it; I was expecting it was digitally controlled), no elaborate LED lighting, no multi-adjustable shelving, no door-within-a-door… not even a concealed area for eggs. The shelving is perhaps the most disappointing part. Many have already commented on the fact that there is a 'gap' at the back of each shelf allowing items to fall down, but I presume this is done to aid cooling circulation. Still annoying as other fridges don't do this. Rather than my old GE (or even my old KitchenAid Side-by-Side), the shelving is a 'ratchet' system, that provides rather limited range of flexibility. Like store shelves at Target or Wal-Mart, they lock into place in two spots per side (see images), but since the railing does not come all the way down, you can't put the shelf at a lower setting as the bottom ratchet will be loose (making the shelf unstable) and one stop up makes the bottom ratchet stick out, again making it unstable. It’s difficult to explain in words, so I hope the pictures help. The freezer is a bit small, which is common for any French Door Counter Depth Fridge, but it does have a deep bin, one full-width rolling tray and another rolling tray, along with a good-size ice tray. That’s the one benefit of the way the water and ice is set up in this fridge. The water is MUCH colder than my old side-by-side and the ice holds 2-3 times a typical French door, and the added benefit of more space in the fridge. The Samsung Fridges have an ice maker in the top left of the fridge and a ‘shute’ on the left door, heavily restricting actual fridge space. This fridge is great in that regard. So why four stars? It’s not fancy on the inside, but it’s functional, looks premium from the outside and KitchenAid offers strong support. So long as it proves reliable, it will have earned the four stars.

    Great refrigerator

    We have several rental houses and whenever an appliance dies, we get a new one for ourselves and move our old one to the rental. However, we like this refrigerator so much I don't think we'll be giving it up. This is our first counter depth frig and we like the fact that it's shallowness keeps things more accessible. Not to mention how much better it looks in our space. We also like the narrow tray in the freezer as well as having multiple sections. Makes organization much easier. The removable liners in the door compartments make cleaning a breeze. It's nice that the height is taller than other counter depth refrigerators we saw. And the handles and front of the frig resist marks and are easy to clean. We like the water dispenser in the door for two reasons: 1. it makes the front of the frig less cluttered and therefore in our opinion better looking and 2.in our experience with having so many refrigerators over the years, the outside ice and water dispensers are the parts that go out quickly and repeatedly. In regard to the gap at the back of the shelves that others mention, this has been the case with every refrigerator we've had. The advantage with this one is the gap is wide enough that we can set bottles back there. So we haven't lost any space. We chose bottles that we don't use too often but they are not difficult to reach and remove. I attached a picture. On the top shelf, we just used two clear low trays that can be pushed against the back so no loss of space there either. We have not had to use customer service so I can't speak to that but I guess that's a good thing - it means our frig is holding up well!

    Right side panel of refrigerator box was "bowed" about 1 1/4 inch and would not fit in custom refrigerator cabinet. The refrigerator is operating OK but cabinet company still making adjustments to panels for proper fit.

    Happy with this purchase. After much research I decided on Kitchen Aid and have had no issues, it fit perfect in the space and looks great. People complained about it being noisy but has not been anything that bothered me.

    A Refrigerator that Exposes its Contents!

    Design, Freezer

    We had owned the identical refrigerator in our Tulsa home although it was labeled under the Viking brand. We had purchased it because the handle closely matched the Thermador appliances we had put in a kichen redo. We love how nothing is lost in the interior of this fridge...top or bottom. Everything is very visible! The refrigerator and freezer maintain the temperature the best of any we have ever owned. We chose the model with the water dispenser inside the fridge as well as a container and scoop in the freezer for ice. Unlike the shorter model, the water button inside can be turned on by the carafe or pitcher using only one hand. This lessens the job of keeping the SS exterior clean from water drips, and it creates very sleek lines. This refrigerator is 2" taller than the other counter depth refrigerators. The extra height and no front panel dispensers gives the refrigerator very clean lines. We love this refrigerator!

    I replaced a 24-year-old Amana side-by-side refrigerator with this model. I was constrained by counter-depth requirements, and could not find a side-by-side that did NOT have door dispensers (which, according to our food needs, take up too much room in the freezer). I purchased a small freezer for the garage, to make up for the lost space. Here are the pros: 1. Bright interior lighting. 2. Cute built-in plastic scoop for removing ice cubes. 3. Digital temperature display and water filter canister are unobtrusive and don't take up a lot of space. 4. Outstanding special delivery/installer ("George") assisted with cutting cabinetry that was built around the old, shorter model being replaced. Here are the cons: 1. Freezer space is 2.5 cubic feet smaller than my earlier model (a common problem with French Door styles), even though this model is 4" taller than my previous one. 2. Refrigerator shelves have a 2 1/8" OPEN GAP between each glass shelf and the rear wall of the fridge. Shelves have a 1 1/8" open gap between the glass shelf and the side walls of the fridge. Therefore, all items with diameters smaller than this (jam jars, soda and juice cans, juice packs, glass beer bottles, glass wine bottles -- e.g., dessert wines, condiments, narrow maple syrup bottles, etc.) will go crashing down the back -- or sides -- of the refrigerator. TERRIBLE DESIGN. 3. Appliance is somewhat noisy. When ice is being refilled, for example, you'll hear lots of initial popping/cracking/dropping sounds. 4. Left door of refrigerator has a unique interior folding hinge that seals its closure. But if you don't push this door hard enough, it will not completely close. 5. The Open-Door Alarm does not go off until after FIVE MINUTES (see #4, above). This time-delay is unadjustable. One could easily leave the house within FIVE minutes. TERRIBLE DESIGN. 6. No butter dispenser/bin/shelf. 7. Vegetable and fruit drawers are not "full-extension." In other words, you cannot open them all the way, making it difficult to remove heads of lettuce and other greens. The bins themselves are much smaller than usual, owing to their placement where the refrigerator's door shelves are the deepest. TERRIBLE DESIGN. 8. Considered a somewhat 'high-end' model, I am disappointed that so many features are so poorly designed. But my need for a counter-depth, without spending $8,000-10,000.00 for a "built-in" model, as well as immediately needing refrigeration during a hot summer season, necessitated this purchase. To Kitchenaid [Whirlpool]: YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!

    This is a quality refrigerator. It ended up being too tall for the space. I would recommend this refrigerator to anyone who wants something simple with less gadgets, such as in the door water/ice dispenser which is usually the 1st to break.

    A great refriigerator at a reasonable price

    We purchased this product to replace a 4 year old Samsung that had major ice maker problems. The Kitchen Aide’s Ice maker is producing ice at a good clip. Additionally the creative use of the space in both the Freezer and main compartment is outstanding. I particularly like the deli drawer that spans the width of the refrigerator, pulls out so that you can easily find what is needed. Finally the flat design of the fron produces a very clean “industrial” look.

    Once the refrigerator doors were balanced, so they would close as expected, it’s been terrific!

    Great option for someone replacing an appliance

    Posted .

    Even though the refrigerator was an open box sale I was able to have a carpenter "build" new panels for my new refrigerator from an old built in unit. This option gave my the convenience of having the new fridge seem as though it was originally designed to be there. Sorry I don't have a photo as I'm now looking for appliance/cabinet hardware to match all.

    Pros mentioned:

    We wanted a counter depth Refrigerator so it doesn’t protrude into the walk space. This one is laid out so nicely we don’t even notice it being smaller. Getting the extra couple of inches in height does make up for that a little, plus looks nice filling the space more. The shelves are a nice depth to hold plenty of items but not get lost behind other stuff and the doors hold a ton since we avoided the in door ice and water dispenser since we rarely used that on our old fridge. The wide drawer on the bottom is a nice place to spread out sandwich meats and cheeses etc. so you can see what you have. The freezer can be a little cramped but we like the way you can organize in different drawers. I love that it displays the temperatures of the fridge and freezer and seems to do a nice job keeping vegetables fresh. We are very happy with this purchase.
