This versatile 30.0 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™ 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 Horrible! This refrigerator is a big disappointment. I can't put any fruit or vegetables in there. i love to cook and i need fresh fruits and veggies. they are all wilted or rotten in a few days. I have an old refrigerator in my garage and it works better than my brand new one. I called the person who sold it to me and he has nothing to say. I can't put things on the top shelf or they will freeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love Great refrigerator and freezer. It replaces a 30 year old Sub Zero. The Kitchen Aid has a much better use of space than the new Sub Zeros. Am very happy with it so far. We've had it about 2-1/2 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Layout! I am a General Contractor and Master Carpenter who has installed all manufactures 48" Refrigerators in my clients custom homes over the years. My wholesale supplier recommended the Kitchen Aid 48" Side by Side for my personal kitchen remodel. I am very glad she did as I find it to have more usable space than the Sub Zeros and GE's I've installed over the years. It is quite, efficient with well organized drawers and shelves, excellent lighting, and I love the location of the ice maker and the quantity of ice it produces. I am thrilled with this purchase. I hope it holds up to years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Refrigerator I bought this after lengthy research and much internal debate about whether to get a Sub Zero. I couldn't be happier. It provides all the refrigerator and freezer space I need. It is bight in the interior and everything is easy to find. The ice maker makes so much ice I doubt I could ever use it all. The look is great and something I didn't expect was the smudge proof surface. It is simple to keep spotless. A cloth comes with it and only water is required for cleaning, really. Be sure to know in advance that cleaning products can harm the finish. Oh, and the $4,000 savings from the Sub Zero isn't bad either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is sleek, quiet and an energy efficient machine. The refrigerator has been in our home only a few weeks; however, it has been great. It is attractive and dresses up our kitchen nicely. It's quiet efficiency tells us it will be with us for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of Space! I bought this refrigerator 2 months ago. I love the space and all the extra ice the ice machine makes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built-in Frig We replaced a 30+ yr old Sub-Zero and can not believe how much bigger the KitchenAid is. Looks and work fabulous !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good... Bought this to replace my jenn air built in. Hope this one lasts a bit longer then 7 years. Easy to install (was missing a small connecting piece for the water supply for the icemaker). Could have even have done it on my own! So far, week 2 and working well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse refrigerator ever We bought this refrigerator on July 27 and are still waiting for KitchenAid to repair or replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great We replaced our last kitchen Aid, which lasted over 25 years! We love all of the new features and it works wonderfully.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No water dispenser! Recently bought a new home and this fridge was already in the house. I cannot fathom how a refrigerator at this price point does not have water dispensing inside the refrigerator side. I don't like that the ice doesn't dispense but I understand the desire for a clean look on the outside, but not having a water dispenser on the inside seems extremely short sighted. Competitors have them in much lower price points. So now I need to install a system into my sink to filter water. Very disappointing. Also, as others have mentioned, the unit makes a constant hissing sound that is surprising for this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Our first Kitchen Aid refrigerator lasted 18 years...and I loved it. This one is even better. It looks beautiful, works wonderfully. It's quieter, brighter on th inside, has plenty of room. I just love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking but whistles Too early to tell how this unit will perform. Nice looking outside. Lights inside seem duller and slower to click on from my GE? Icemaker makes ice quicly. My big issue is that after closing the freezer door, unit whistles. From what I Have read on line, this is normal? Anyhow, it is annoying and I am glad this unit is in my laundry room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from main control board died we'll see if KA will let this review stand. the main control board was badly designed: there are hundreds of complaints online for the same problem. KA has chosen to abandon the product and no longer makes the main control board. will not be buying any KA products in the future. the ice maker has not worked since purchase despite multiple service calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Lovely & Works Beautifully! We bought this to replace a Jenn Air 48' built in that was a 2003 model - What an Upgrade! The exterior finish is just gorgeous and the handles match our stainless steel 48" gas stove - This refrigerator offers plenty of shelf & in the door storage space, including gallon storage, it has beautiful LED lighting on the side that illuminates the interior well, it has a beautiful temperature control panel, a filter for the ice maker which by the way has totally exceeded our expectations on the making of ice cubes - quickly makes ice, is quieter than most ice makers, and doesn't have that "off" taste - The freezer is spacious too. Keeps ice cream frozen solid! All around, we are delighted with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as a Sub Zero? We had to replaces built-in SubZero. Opted for one without bells and whistles. Installation went well. Quiet so we barely hear it. Drawers work well. Doors open easily. We miss a egg rack that we had in the Sub Zero. So far, after three months, no problems it appears that we can find happiness in Kitchenaid after owning a SubZero.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent features and look Waited 10 weeks for our first one to be delivered, yes first one. Within 24 hours it was obvious there was a problem with the refrigerator section. Kitchenaid were super helpful and efficient having a tech out the next morning who confirmed the control panel was malfunctioning. I was offered the repair which I declined as I felt a High end appliance should be brand new and functioning not repared. Kitchenaid delivered our second unit 4 weeks later and so far so good with a notable bonus that it is signifucantly quieter than the previous one too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significant Upgrade We bought this built in to replace our 19 year old KitchenAid built in and found the new unit to be more quiet, had significant improvements in its lighting and great door shelves/racks. We thought the ice bin is a little oversized but works greatly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 48 inch built in panel ready Love this built in. We purchased our first KitchenAid 48 inch built in which was also panel ready about 20 years ago. This time no one told us that it did NOT come with handles. 20 years ago it did but not this time. I was surprised that the salesman didn't offer that information until after we received it and had to call to ask where the handles were. At that point he told us it did not come with handles. Never saw it on your web site either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from loved the INSIDE upgrades to an existing model Happy to replace my kitchen Aid refrigerator with the same Kitchen aid side by side model that I had for 15 yrs. This model is an exact inside replica of my old one however the existing panels frames are not compatible and would not fit thus resulting in extra expenses,terrible look and inconvenience.The designers need to take care of existing clients that have held the exact kitchens.It is ok for new kitchens when kitchen cabinets are being made to measure~!otherwise I am happy with the product.
