This versatile 29.5 Cu. ft built-in refrigerator features the ExtendFresh™ Plus Temperature Management System, which maintains the perfect temperature for fresh ingredients. The Produce Preserver extends freshness by neutralizing the over-ripening effects of ethylene emitted by certain fruits and vegetables. It also features PrintShield™ Finish, a fingerprint resistant finish, which protects against smudges and enhances the look of the refrigerator.


PrintShield Stainless
PrintShield Stainless  -  KBSD608ESS


PrintShield™ Finish

resists smudges while enhancing the overall look of the refrigerator. This new feature for KitchenAid® takes the worry out of keeping a working kitchen beautiful.

ExtendFresh™ Plus Temperature Management System

ensures ingredients remain fresh for maximum taste and texture using a sensor-controlled system with a variable-capacity compressor. There is one thermistor in the freezer and one thermistor in the refrigerator.

Produce Preserver

Absorbs ethylene gas emitted by many fruits and vegetables, causing them to over ripen. By removing ethylene, the produce preserver helps extend freshness.

SatinGlide® Crispers

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

Exterior Ice and Water Dispenser

Light touch controls provide easy access to ice and water and enhances the refrigerator’s look and performance.

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.

ENERGY STAR® Qualified

products conserve energy by exceeding minimum federal energy efficiency.

LED Lighting

Gradually increases to full intensity making it easy to find items inside the refrigerator, freezer, and even the crisper. Unlike incandescent bulbs, the LED lights framed in chrome are maintenance-free and never need to be replaced.

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.

Intuitive Controls

Provide an easy-to-use touch pad control system that puts every refrigerator function right at your fingertips.

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 5 out of 5 by from Please with new KitchenAid Refrigerator When I purchased this refrigerator the sales me told me to expect it to take longer than the date promised, but it was delivered on time. I had to have a separate company do the installation, which was a bit disappointing after paying so much for the unit, but other than that the process went fine. I only had the refrigerator for two weeks, but so far so good. My family loves the dated features. We had an order model (1998) of the same built-in with custom panel, but decided to go with the brushed stainless finish which give the entire kitchen an updated look. I just hope this one last as long my old KitchenAid

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful fridge I've had this refrigerator for about a month now. It's very nice looking and I like the way it's laid out inside. Lots of shelves and holds a lot of food. Very quite. Makes great ice. The crushed ice feature takes a few seconds to dispense crushed ice. You always get 2-4 whole cubes first. Not a huge problem though for us. You can also crab ice out of the bin inside the freezer. The bin is open in the top so it's easy to access. There is some frost forming above the top shelf where the ice is ejected into the ice bin. In all fairness I have not had time to address that so it could be user error. We have several renovations going on so frost is not a huge priority at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refrigerator Magic I wasn't happy with my old refrigerator (a GE Profile) but planned to replace it when I upgraded my kitchen. Unfortunately, the old frig decided to warm up the freezer and refrigerator to 60 degrees and was 12 years old with a couple of repairs under its belt.. Time to go but what to replace it with? Because the depth for my refrigerator is only counter depth but the width is huge, I had to replace it with one of the same size. I selected this Kitchen Aid because of my very positive experiences with other Kitchen Aid appliances. Online reviews of other high-end refrigerators, you know their names, did not leave me with much confidence in those products. So, I bit the bullet and ordered the Kitchen Aid refrigerator. I amin love with it! The inside is designed to maximize the the depth isn't as much a problem as the old refrig. The internal space design is great. After the refrig was installed, it reached temperature within less than a hour. My husband I kept returning to check the refrigerator for the first few operates so silently that we had to check to make sure that it was working. It was and the temperatures are true and consistent. The outside is beautiful and designed to minimize finger prints, etc. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money We splurged on Kitchen Aid appliances for our new home, and I don't regret it. The counter depth side by side fridge is attractive and functional. It is easy to see everything and there is plenty of room for all our groceries. The freezer is a bit small, but fine for our household. The ice maker is efficient and reliable (maybe a little noisy).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refigerator Excellence A beautiful fridge with useful compartments and great features. The question as to whether this fridge is worth the price came up when my wife and I were fridge shopping, "how important is a fridge, I mean how ofter are you going to care as to what it looks like?" answer" "Every day". A staple in life = spend for the great fridge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Beautiful. Doesn't Close Without Pushing Door In I bought this a month ago and there have been two times where I have closed the fridge door but have not actually pushed it in to close it and the door has stayed open all night. Also, the fridge has turned off twice on its own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My new refrigerator I bought this to replace my Subzero which had many problems. The only complaint I have is that the shelves in the door can't really be adjusted to hold wine bottles without just taking one of the shelves completely out. Wine bottles don't fit on the bottom shelf either! The drawers are great, easy to see inside without opening them. The ice maker is easy to remove and makes ice quickly! The glass shelves are very nice and deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful appliance, perfect functionality! We are extremely pleased with our Kitchen Aid Side-by-Side. It is just the perfect size to hold the products our family of 5 needs on a daily basis. It enhances the beauty of our kitchen while keeping all our refrigerated and frozen products at just the right temperature.
Date published: 2017-01-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool! I love the fact that the refrigerator calculates the amount of water it dispenses. That's a feature that helps me keep track of my daily water intake. The unit is very attractive and keeps food safely cooled and frozen. It's easy to see everything in the refrigerator section...not so easy to stock the freezer part. I don't like the fact that there is no grill cover on the bottom of the refrigerator. It looks kind of tacky. The drawers don't seem to close snugly, but maybe they were improperly installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Idol Worship Have you ever seen a 48" (almost 30 cu ft) refrigerator? You would be in awe, too! It is beautiful, functional, and fits everything my family needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Love the layout and the LED lighting. The water and ice dispensers actually work well. One minor nit, the handles on the frig bins could have a slightly more vertical gripping surface.
Date published: 2016-12-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is my first high end refrigerator and I could'nt be happier. The 48" size seemed huge until it was installed and trust me, its the perfect size. Because its only 24" D, having the extra width makes all the difference. The veggies stay crisp and fresh and the frerezer has ample space. Of course it looks fantastic!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ice Maker Has Ongoing Problems I really do love my Kitchen Aid appliances, Dishwasher, Trash compactor, and even the New Refrigerator, except. for the Ice Maker & Compartment. When I open the freezer door , my husband & I have to step back because if the ice is ready to drop, It will Drop on the floor and 1 time my Husband bent to open a bottom drawer and an ice cube hit his head ! They ordered new parts, BUT it still does the same thing. This was the reason I had to buy a new one last Dec. they no longer had replacement parts for my 9 year old original Kitchen Aid Refrigerator. At least the old one did not send out reg. cubes, half cubes or shaved ice. like this does. Yes, I have checked that the selector is set to Cubed.. I am tired of calling the repair Company & waiting for them to come before they even order new parts. Then have to wait another week to 10 days for the part & have the repair person again ..only for the NEW PARTS to also be defective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The refrigerator could be deeper, the icemaker just stops While the appliance is wide enough, the freezer space is as limited as a smaller one. The icemaker seems to just freeze up - this is the second time I've had to call a repairman
