The ExtendFresh™ Plus Temperature Management System maintains the prefect temperature for fresh ingredients.

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.

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.

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 1 out of 5 by from Nice refrigerator but not perfect... Love the refrigerator but disappointed with freezer drawer design. Drawer is a wire basket with a plastic front. The plastic drawer front on both drawers will not stay attached to the wire basket rendering the drawers useless. This seems to be a design flaw with the drawer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value It is a replacement of my old 42" GE Monogram. I am happy for the decision I made replace vs repair. Works out well. Actually better than I expected. The unit is very quiet. Hope it will last longer than GE Monogram.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! Working great, easy to find everything in the fridge and freezer. Do wish one was offered without ice maker though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous. We installed this fridge a couple of weeks ago and so far I don't have any complaints. It is quiet, the icemaker is quick, and it's just the right size. We really have loved the lighting inside the unit as well as the way the doors feel when you open and close them-- very sturdy and quiet. We did recieve the wrong base grill somehow-- but after contacting customer service I was informed that there is a seperate phone number for the built in units and I was VERY impressed with the customer service I recieved. I got a person without having to listen to elevator music and she understood my issue and sent a replacement out without question and incurring extra charges. I was very pleased with the experience!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen is my 'office' Replaced our side-by-side KA refrigerator ( 2004) model with 2016 model. Incredible lighting improvements. Ice maker lowered to much easier level for gathering ice. So quiet that we initially checked repeatedly to see if it was functioning properly. Shelves vastly improved: better sliding function, deeper, well positioned. Very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sub Zero vs. Kitchenaid Recently purchased a Kitchenaid refrigerator for our guest house and it is clearly on par with the Subzero refrigerator we have in our main house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful inside and out! We love our new side by side built in refrigerator! We just did a total kitchen remodel and purchased all new KitchenAid appliances. We are happy with all of our appliances. They look great and perform well. My husband's only request was for a side by side refrigerator. I originally wanted french door refrigerator but have been very happy with the side by side. Great storage. Beautiful inside, easy to keep clean and organized. Food seems to stay fresh longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it We have had this fridge for 3+ years and can't complain. Looks great and zero issues. Hoping for years of continued carefree ownership. A little loud but no more than our old subzero.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FREEZER TEMP CONCERN Had a built-in KitchenAid when bought new house. Lasted 16 years. Bought same type, capacity, etc. The unit is beautiful and refrigerator side is great. Problem on Freezer side is that it, every so often, on it's own, although set to 0 degrees, the thermostat drops as low as -10 degrees. With a mercury thermometer we put in the freezer it reads as low as -18 degrees. I then have to reset the temp control in the refrig back to factory settings 0/37. About an hour later the freezer rebounds to -0 to -2 degrees. And no, this is not a result of the freezer door being left open for a period of time. Because it is not an every occurrence we haven't called for service. This unit is only 40days new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Great Refrigerator We needed to replace a counter depth refrigerator having pretty exacting measurements to fit the cabinet. The Kitchenaid was a perfect fit. Not only that, it is a perfect refrigerator; well built, great lighting, wonderful depth and sturdy shelving. The ice maker works amazingly fast. I love the silent doors---no suction sound. I would recommend this appliance over and over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well designed Did Major renovations and replaced all appliances. Not as Deep as our old fridge so don't expect to put a large pizza box on the shelf. will take some time getting use to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Granted it is only a week old, but we really like it. The LED lighting is awesome, it does what it is supposed to and looks great. A couple notes - the S.S. finish seems updated from the past and is a lighter shade/more smudge proof (that is good!), and I think this one is 1/2" deeper than our other older model. We really like it so far!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst service experiance I purchased this built in KBSN602ESS00 unit in may 2016. Since day 1 we have had over temp alarm and no control of temp. I WAS TOLD THERE IS A SERVICE BULLITIN about bad board from factory. after 2 services problem still persist. board and wiring harness replaced. ref temp was 56 degrees. Trying to talk to service or schedule is horrible. I called 5 times this am and no response yet. NEVER will I BUY kitchenaid again unless the after sales experience changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new refrigerator! Love the look of this refrigerator. Nice drawers inside too that open and close easily compared to older models. Ice drawer is good size for our family of five and fills quickly. Shelves in freezer a little smaller than our older model though, which is the only thing we do not like about it. But, like the drawers it has. Our older version didn't have any drawers in the freezer. Doors feel substantial and shelves are easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacing a refrigerator in a custom kitchen I needed to replace a built in refrigerator in a custom built kitchen. Due to restrictions in the space I opted for the upgraded KitchenAid model that is the new version of my former refrigerator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Ice Box Our built-in Kitchen Aid went kaput so we replaced it with the newest model. The lighting is terrific. Still the ice drawer freezes over so individual ice cubes don't happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent side-by-side fridge! I bought this fridge 3 weeks ago and we love it. Runs quiet, and makes ice extremely fast compared to our other fridge. We replaced a Northland Built in fridge, same size. No comparison in quality. Absolutely love the Kitchenaid! Looks great, runs quiet, inside drawers make it easy to organize. Would recommend this side-by-side to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great expectations We looked forward to the installation of our new KitchenAid as it was to be a major item in the modernization of our kitchen. Upon its arrival and installation we were delighted to find that it was even more than we had anticipated. Our cabinetmaker installed the custom doors along with the custom handles we selected and it is simply beautiful. The design is well thought-out, and the fact that it is not as deep as our previous refrigerator yielded an even greater surprise as how much larger our kitchen became with the refrigerators less deep foot print. Our home is an historic home and it was important to us to be able to make the refrigerator "disappear" into the cabinets and look appropriate to the 1700's. All in all, we are absolutely delighted and very pleased that this is the brand and model we chose. We highly recommend this product.
