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.


Gives the high-end custom kitchen look of a built-in refrigerator.

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.

In-Door-Ice® System

Adds interior room in the refrigerator with an ice bin that mounts on the inside left door of the refrigerator, keeping it out of the refrigerator compartment and allowing for extra shelf space.

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.

Adjustable Spill Resistant Shelves

Prevents messes from spilling over into other parts of the refrigerator. In place of a lip that can trap foods, the shelf edges are nano-etched with a finely texture surface that contains spills and lets you use the whole shelf from edge-to-edge.

Exterior and Ice and Water Dispenser

Provides freshly filtered, great tasting water and ice that can be conveniently found right in the refrigerator door.

Clear Door Bins with Metallic Accents

Allow you to see labels right through the bins, helping you keep condiments and other items organized. Each bin is removable, making it easy to pull out, chop up and store an amazingly fresh produce, and simply slide back into the fridge.

Measured Water Fill

Displays and automatically dispenses water in ounces, cups, or liters. It can be programmed to pour a measured amount, helping make food prep easier. It can even be set up to fill essential items on a daily basis like a coffee pot or a water bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fridge! We have had this fridge for 4 weeks so far, and no issues. We were looking for a counter depth fridge with two compressors, and this is a great option. The food stays fresh and at the appropriate temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps food fresher! This fridge was installed less than a month ago, so we are very much still in the honeymoon phase with it. But so far, I'm amazed at how much fresher it keeps produce. Because it is the extra tall model, it has a built-in look and provides ample storage. I also enjoy the measured fill function on the water dispenser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty roomy for a counter depth frig! So far I love this refrigerator. Wow, I actually have ice cold milk! Love the ice cube dispenser, lots of space inside, everything stays fresher and it is so much better than my last refrigerator. The unit is very quiet. The one thing that annoys me is that when you clean the outside of the unit you see streaks no matter how much you try and buff it out. Other than that I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lookin fridge I replaced my 20 CuFt French Door Kitchenaid with this. what a difference! Much better use of space.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware - Not the Kitchenaid quality I used to know We purchased in November 2013. Just after the one year mark, drawer fronts broke off, several LED lights not working. Inside plastic is thin; dropped a carton of yogurt and it cracked the inside of the refrigerator - not the flimsy carton! Last summer it was a faulty compressor, took several days off work and almost a month with no freezer before it was repaired. Now two water line fittings cracked and our wood floors are ruined. I did buy extended warranty, what a racket - I have to wait for a diagnosis appointment (I can see the cracked fittings where the water is coming out, took a photo, they are not interested) then a review to see if they will cover, then another appointment to fix, if they decide to cover. At least two days off work for me and a minimum of two weeks to repair. I've had Kitchenaid for most of my life and been satisfied. Purchased the counter depth side-byside model in 2002 for our previous home, lived with it until we moved 11 years later. Loved it, so bought the 2013 version. The 2013 product is beyond disappointing.This will be my last Kitchenaid appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this refrigerator We bought this model 503 refrigerator in December 2017. It was part of a kitchen remodel and replaced a 10 year old KitchenAid (not a thing wrong with the old one except it was black and the wife went stainless on the remodel). I wanted nothing to do with a french door refrigerator. The ice maker is in the upper portion in the refrigerator door. Everyone we spoke too lamented how poorly their ice maker worked due to its location. The answer was this side-by-side. My wife wanted a counter depth model too. We checked out so many different models in a number of locations near us. This model was perfect. The amount of usable space is amazing. The unit can move back forth with a light effort. The ice maker works great! Different things matter to different folks but I got my ice maker, the wife got her gorgeous counter depth refrigerator. We think this is a great product and looks so nice with other KitchenAid appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally back to a useful fridge Couldn’t stand the French door fridge that came with our house. Lots of shelves, freezer actually holds things, this is nice.
Date published: 2017-12-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet It is working just as we hoped and expected it to. We bought a extra freezer shelf and refrigerator door bin to maximize the interior space and now it holds plenty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Refrigerator Everything works good so far. Interior is a little smaller than my old refrigerator of the same size. The measured water fill is a nice feature!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is the WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER BOUGHT. I have had this product for a year now. First delivery- scratch on the door. Replaced door, still has scratches, door doesn't line up with the fridge side. Ice machine leaks all over. replaced ice machine. Loud. Now has completely stopped working. I quit. No more Kitchen Aid for me.
Date published: 2017-12-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible design and very poor reliability I bought this fridge and in the first year the ice machine had to be replaced then it broke again a few months later and they told me I had to replace the freezer door. They couldn't get a door in stock so I was given 75% of the retail price paid and now have to buy a new fridge. Besides the complete lack of reliability, the drawers are tiny and the design is terrible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not flexible Shelves and bin are not really adjustable. Basically one shelf missing and you can decide which spot you want it to be missing from. Veggie bin extremely small. Water in door not cooled. Is nice looking, except side are gray colored plastic
Date published: 2017-12-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice looking fridge just got it. nice look. great lights inside. side by side are the easiest to use. Kitchenaid promo on cost made it a value. they got rid of the sliding shelves (liked those) and bins since to be made of low quality plastic (versus older models)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2-month review I had reservations before purchasing this model due to the reviews I had found on different forums. There were statements that the unit had a very loud and noisy compressor and water pump. I even was intending to purchase a sound barrier mat to place under unit due to we have wood floors which transmit noise and vibrations more intently. BUT, I am very pleased to admit I have none of the compressor and pump noises as stated by most of the forums. (KNOCK-ON-WOOD). The unit works as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so quiet love my new KitchenAid fridge. It's got a smaller footprint than the one it replaced but the inside space is quite comparable and it's so quiet--the only time we hear it is when it's making ice
