Preserva® Food Care System

Two independent cooling systems provide a dedicated refrigeration unit to help keep food fresh longer, and a separate system for frozen food. The FreshFlow™ Air Filter helps minimize odors while the FreshFlow™ Produce Preserver helps delay over-ripening.

Professionally-Inspired Design

combines a bold blend of professionally-inspired styling with sleek touches for the home. This beautiful side-by-side refrigeration unit features Satin Textured Handles and the KitchenAid® Badge, a symbol of uncompromised quality.

Automatic Ice Maker

Ensures that you have a constant supply of ice for entertaining.

SatinGlide® System with Soft-Close

Add a luxury experience to the crisper drawers. The ball bearing rollers and glides allow effortless in-and-out movement even when fully loaded.

LED Lighting

Uses less energy than incandescent bulbs. Multiple lights are purposefully placed throughout the refrigerator and freezer, making it easy to find items at a glance.

Intuitive Controls

Intuitive controls make it easy to precisely adjust the temperature of both the refrigerator and freezer.

Adjustable Spill-Resistant Glass Shelves

are easy to clean and help prevent messes from spilling over into other parts of the refrigerator. The shelf edges are nano-etched with a finely textured surface that helps contain spills, and lets you use the whole shelf from edge-to-edge.

Fit System Limited Guarantee1

This installation guarantee ensures KitchenAid Brand Built-in Refrigerators will replace your existing cabinet cut-out of a standard comparable built-in refrigerator model that is 36", 42" or 48" inch wide or kitchenAid will provide up to $300 for a professional to adjust your cabinets2.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ice maker does not work even after seven repair attempts This is a very expensive refrigerator and the ice maker does not work. The appliance repair people were out here SEVEN times to try to fix the problem and have not been able to do so. Whirlpool has not honored their warranty yet and the repair men keep coming out to try to fix this to no avail

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, except for a noisy spring The french door refrigerator looks and works great. Good lighting and adjustable shelves and good use of space. The spring in the left door, which has the double seal, occasionally twangs like it got caught in the wrong position, but otherwise we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful appliance Bought a house 2 years ago with a built in kitchen aide refrigerator that died. It was 20 years old. Had a little problem finding replacement as had to be special ordered. However after getting it installed I am very pleased. It is very nice to look at and is spacious. I only hope this one will last 20 years. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Bought this a month and a half ago. It's very quiet compared to my last fridge (when ice is being made or consender is running you can hear it, but usually those are not happening). Ice maker works well and it holds a lot. Still getting used to counter-depth (cannot fit a pizza box in there) but that doesn't have anything to do with the fridge, just the style and depth of all built-ins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations Except for an installation problem this unit has a user friendly layout and very quiet function. It would be nice to have a classier and more detailed user guide included. We are happy with it and would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow this is big. Took a whole crew to deliver. First of all Lowe's did a great job installing this gigantic fridge without scratching it or our floors. The fridge is beautiful to look at inside and out. Very thoughtful touches such as a bin to store eggs and functional ice tray. Very quiet. I don't think I've ever heard it make a sound. The only drawback we have experienced within the first month is the flap on the left door that seals the French doors was somehow broken and doesn't close easily anymore. Apparently we are going to have to be very careful opening and closing the doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek, contemporary design There is nothing I don't like about this refrigerator. The inside space is designed so well. I'm actually having a problem filling it up. Also, it is beautiful!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great-looking 'fridge - just wish the shelves were deeper We replaced an old KitchenAid 42" side-by-side model that was 22 years old with this new beauty in October 2016. The old one had wooden panels that matched our cabinets, so this new black one stands out a lot - but that's okay because it is quite handsome. The old one seemed to hold more because the interior shelves were definitely deeper. If I designed this, I'd consider omitting shelves on one door, then the interior shelves and drawer could be deeper. I'd also add an exterior water dispenser (which takes up room inside, I know. But still.) This new one is much quieter - that's for sure - and that's a good thing. All in all, we're pleased this this guy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the price Overall the refrigerator is too small , freezer is small too. When i open the right door , the door does not stay open , i have to hold with my hands , so inconvenient while trying to grab things inside the refrigerator . Very expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome design I absolutely love my kitchenaid built-in refrigerator!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks large and impressive Our former Kitchen Aid refrigerator died after 17 years of use. We needed a built in with the exact dimensions of our old unit so it would fit in the specific cabinet space. This one made it with 1/8 inch to spare. Our old unit had wood panels and this one is Black stainless steel. The unit is very impressive in Black stainless and has given our kitchen an updated look. The inside is a grey metal look and we would have preferred it to be white like all other refrigerators but I guess it just takes getting use to it. Overall it met our specific needs and we really like the Black stainless steel and will eventually replace our other appliances with the Black stainless steel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is a lemon, DO NOT BUY I purchased this fridge and the frame cracked and was deemed irreparable so KA replaced it. The replacement broke 5 months later due to a completely different reason from the 1st one. The recommendation was to have it replaced but KA refused. I emailed teh CEO twice and he never responded. I was asked to contact customer service and I did but they never got back to me. I finally had it fixed because KA gave me no other choice and the fix has lasted 2 weeks before the same issue occurred again. Now I am back to a broken fridge. I don'r understand how KA won't at least respond back to me and stand behind it's product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving it! I bought this about 2 months ago and had to wait for it to be delivered - about a month ago. I've been using it and loving it - although my renos are still ongoing so I haven't seen it installed with the cabinetry yet. Good visibility of all shelves. I wish the interior lights would come on as soon as you open a door (not wait till they hit a certain 'angle' of being open. The covered interior (butter?) container at the top of the door sometimes gets caught when opening the door and opens allowing stuff to fall out. Looks great inside and out and is keeping things nice and cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Great product beautifully made attention to detail, would compare it to Thermadore or Viking. Would recommend as a great buy.
Date published: 2016-10-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY! 5 Months old and has completely broken down. Needs a new motherboard and more. Repair technician equated the issue to an engine going out on a brand new car and recommended that it be replaced instead of fixed. Customer service said they won't replace. Sent an email to the CEO and didn't get a response. You spend this much on a refrigerator and you expect it to last 20 years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from sufflicilent space and shelving purchased refrigerator about 1 month ago. delivered and installed same day. Except for no prior advicei from salesman or otherwise that when doors close there is a "pop out" [from inside air pressure], all is (was) most satisfactory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Looking. Over the top if a few improvements were made So far,I am mostly delighted with my purchase. It's a terrific looking refrigerator which performs well. (Even the ice cubes are good looking.) The black doors are really splendid - a major design innovation. I have just three suggestions. The drawers in the refrigerator portion need drawer pulls or recessed spaces to make them easy to grip. There is no obvious way to pull them out. The butter containers do not open easily. A little tab on the bottom of the lid would do the job. It would also be nice to be able to open one door (not both) to get at the drawers. These are small matters. 5 stars for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Frig We bought this refrigerator about a month ago and absolutely love it. Keeps food right in fromt. Nothing hiding all the way in the back. LED lights, interior color, charcoal air freshener, veggie keeper all standard. Plenty if ice too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of room Lots of room compared to our old Monogram. Love the freezer being on the bottom. Left door does slam shut and causes items in door to jostle.
Date published: 2016-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement We replaced our kitchen aid built-in when the older model quit working. This one is far superior to be old. Our old one never really seemed to work right. We love the platinum interior and LED lights. Everything stays really cold. The ice maker is very good as well.
Date published: 2016-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Space! I love the amount of space available in this refrigerator! Everything has easy access. I was unsure of the ice being inside the freezer, but after dealing with numerous faulty water/ice dispensers, this is a pleasure.
Date published: 2016-07-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great looks, some design mistakes I have had this for about a month. The color inside is quite nice. Looks good. I like that the ice maker is inside the fridge. I think an indoor water dispenser would be nice. The drawers do not open if you don't have both doors open (it might scratch the seal between doors) which makes it a bit uncomfortable for using. The other thing is that it has a lot of humidity. I think there might be something not working properly. The veggie drawers don't have a humidity control, instead it has an extra thing you out there. I think if it where built inside like others it would be much better. I would have liked to see a deeper freezer and a compartment for items like ice cream. It seems a bit simple for such an expensive fridge.
