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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Fast freeze I bought this about a month ago. The Ice Maker is a little loud but only when it filling with water

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving it I love the lighting inside. I believe it could use at least one more door bin but 2 would be better. The only other concern I have is the inability to adjust glass shelf heights. Water line makes more noise than I like during filling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks good very quite only objection after 2 weeks of use is that the ice maker does not produce enough ice ever for two people

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not exactly as advertised. For the most part I like this refrigerator. I am perplexed by one thing. The example that I saw at the ABT store in Glenview IL had beautiful brushed aluminum wrapped shelves and the photos in the Kitchen Aid website also show the same shelves. The refrigerator that I recieved has a cheaper version of the shelves with only Aluminum on the front and not wrapped all the way around (not as aesthetically pleasing or physically strong in my opinion) My only other complaint is the small size of the ice that is produced by the ice maker. Love the handles and the LED lighting. Runs very quiet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible waste of hard earned money I bought this refrigerator less than 4 years ago. It needed several service repairs within the limited one year warranty period, and then several after that. We finally decided not to spend another dollar on the lemon that we bought, and were forced to buy a new refrigerator. We had already lost hundreds of dollars worth of food several times as well. Each time we reached out to kitchenaid, they refused to do anything because we were out of warantee. When I finally reached out to them seeking some kindness of reimbursement for the lemon they sold me, the refused to stand behind their product. The freezer was full of snow. The outside rusted from the condensation that kept occouring on the outside of the fridge. The refrigerator part never really was cold, just humid. Don't waste your money!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great lighting I just bought this refrigerator to replace my other one (exact same model). It is stainless steel. I already do not like the finish. My old one was a flat silver color like my dishwasher (kitchen aid). This one has a slight swirl effect. Much harder to clean. It smudges and I cleaned it with stainless cleaner and micro fiber towels and rubbed with the grain. Which is what I was told to do. Not happy with the stainless. Why do they change things when they don't need to be. Now I am stuck with this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kitchenaid Not So Great Anymore I purchased this refrigerator less than two years ago. I believe this was a new model at the time. I have had 2 previous KitchenAid refrigerators 1993 and 2000 models. Both were still working, but we replaced the 1993 model thinking it could go out at any time. Early this year the ice maker quit working, but everything else worked properly. Since we didn't even use the ice the refrigerator make because it was so small we did not worry. We were thinking of moving in March and had the ice maker replace . It still did not make ice. After 4 calls for service, it was determined that the wiring in the door was faulty and the entire door needed to be replaced. I contacted KitchenAid and they said they would replace the door without any charge, but it would take 6 weeks for it to arrive here. It arrived at the appliance store where we purchased it and it was dented, so they contacted KitchenAid and they were sending another door which also arrived dented. We are still waiting for a door to arrive and not feeling real secure using the refrigerator with faulty wiring in the freezer door. What ever happened to KitchenAid quality?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice product with a couple design flaws I do love this fridge. And my food looks lovely inside and keeps for ages. I am not thrilled with the ice maker. I did see other reviews that it's noisy. But, for me it's also that my ice has ALWAYS got frost on it. No matter if I take the whole ice maker apart and dry it completely and then use up ice in a week. I don't have smooth ice cubes and I am ALL ABOUT THE ICE MAKER. That has been the one technical issue I have been dismayed about with this fridge. The other issue is the doors do not line up and neither do the handle bars they are just slightly off and I am particular about having things level or balanced so every time I look at the fridge I see that one thing. It bothers me and it looks wrong. Besides these two things everything else about the fridge is very nice. Beautifully laid out inside and the freezer is not an after thought as in other similar class fridges. It's just as nice as the refridgerator section. I love having the two drawers in the freezer. I keep my food in glass storage containers and it's just so easier to see everything at hand. This fridge is very deep. It is NOT counter depth so if you don't want extension then I strongly suggest buying the counter depth but you will probably lose square footage in storage. So decide what is more important for you a fridge that hangs out from counters a good 6" or sleek counter fronts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Keeps produce and fruit fresh! I have used Kitchen aid products for years and have enjoyed items made by Kitchen aid. I do not like the change in the what is used for the stainless steel front and the metal shelf front of shelves in the interior The Refrigerator runs well and produce and fruit last longer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This refrigerator is excellent. Well made We replaced our 21 year old Kitchenaid with this new one. Very well made and has operated flawlessly I like the controls on the front panel and the water filter is easier to change than our old one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price on "scratch & dent", brought cost within reason Overall, satisfied with features, performance and design. One key complaint. The design of the movable compartments in the door greatly limits their positioning. To get maximum use of space, we aren't able to put those compartments in the ideal location, as they "hit" or interfere with the shelves in the fridge.
Date published: 2017-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Fridge We love our new refrigerator. The filtered water and crushed or cubed ice from the door are a big hit. Fruit and vegetables stay fresh much longer, eliminating the need to run to the store for green onion or celery, which had been continuously frozen and ruined in our old refrigerator. The visibility and lighting are good. The shelf and drawer design are conveniently set up. It's also very quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great A couple weeks in and all is well..the only thing is the Ref. wide door tray have additional mounting locations..Looking Good
Date published: 2017-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well designed, with commercial styled handles We love how much room there is on the inside. The icemaker on the door is nice as well, it gives more room in the freezer. The bins for the door are deep so they will hold most anything. They measured fill feature is nice, but I wish that it had a pull out tray to set larger containers on while filling.
