Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! We remodeled our kitchen a few months ago and after a lot of research and review reading, we chose KitchenAid. This is our first stainless suite and my husband and I both love the look. Performance is spot on. Our kitchen, dining and living space are all in one, the great room concept, so looks, performance and noise level are considerations. I wanted counter depth for a clean look and floor space. I also did not want an external ice and water feature. Again, I like a clean look. This refrigerator has the interior filtered water feature and for some reason, this feature thrills our guests! We have all that we need in a beautiful package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Counter Depth French Door Refrigerator is a 5 Star winner! I love my counter depth French refrigerator which expends the space in my narrow galley kitchen. The French doors make everything I need on a daily bases conveniently reachable. The moveable shelves in the door and inside the refrigerator are easily cleaned and hold items of various sizes. I particularly like having the freezer at the lower level where items can be easily moved without having to reach to the back inside of the freezer. The ice maker is quickly accessiblel. The black glossy exterior is stylish, and the refrigerator is quiet, and an energy saver as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Two We went from the old one-door with freezer on top to this style. My husband LOVES this style, especially since he's tall and has a bad back. He doesn't have to stoop to get things out of the fridge. We opted for the counter depth, therefore the freezer is just big enough for storing food for the two of us. We don't use the ice maker, either. If we did, there'd be even less room in the freezer. I keep thinking I'm going to run out of space in the fridge, but I haven't yet. I chose white over stainless because of complaints about fingerprints. Overall, this is a huge improvement over the old style. I really like it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally O.K. To date the problems have been partially taken care of. The upper doors have been adjusted and work adequately. The bottom door has been another matter. The gentleman who has been out twice has done a good job in adjusting the door so that it works much better but is not 100% fixed. It still does not close properly on rare occasions thus allowing the freezer to frost up, This problem happens on far fewer occasions than it did originally. If it continues to do this at all before the warranty runs we will be calling for service again and it will be necessary to replace the rails on which the door opens and closes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent appliance Love this fridge! You have to remember that counter depth means less interior space, so if you have a big family you will need to think about this, but chances are you've got lots of unrecognizeable stuff in your fridge that should be thrown out. I buy 3 gallons of milk at a time and the bottom shelf doesn't have a support in the middle so it started to bend under the weight. Switched the milk to another shelf and problem is solved. Having the freezer on the bottom means the crisper is closer to eye level - you'll notice aging vegetables before they turn to green slime. An alarm sounds when the door is left open - great feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I live in a condo so the counter helps with the space. Love the adjustable shelving as it holds a lot! I love my all Kitchenaid appliances f(fridge, over/range and dishwasher) for the styling and features. However, within the first year, the oven glass door shattered and a piece on the fridge freezer door needed to be replaced as it wasn't closing properly causing a great amount of frost to build up in the freezer. Luckily, they were covered under the year 1 warranty. So far my dishwasher hasn't given me any issues. I purchased them because Kitchenaid only does kitchen appliances. They were more costly than some others and I didn't expect things to go wrong so quickly. If it wasn't for those the issues I had, they would have received an "Excellent".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basic fridge with basic performance This is the replacement to a GE unit that failed. So the benchmark is pretty low. That said, this is a good basic french door unit. that looks good. I only expect it to freeze in the freezer and cool in the refrigerator and it does that. The french doors are somewhat a problem in that when shutting the left door the right door pops open and doesn't shut. We've had a tech out to look at it but even after adjusting the unit the right door still doesn't stay shut when closing the left door. Somewhat annoying. If KitchenAid could solve this problem I'd likely give the unit an Excellent rating overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is sleek to look at Everyone admires this fridge for its looks. It keeps food well and I notice produce lasts much longer than in my old fridge. However, as far as size is concerned the freezer is next door to useless. It doesn't hold anything. I do like the sleek modern lines of the fridge and yes, I would probably buy it again, but why didn't I realize one chicken and the freezer is almost full. I haven't had it long enough to really honestly comment on its performance and now that I've been told it will only last me 6 years, I will have to replace it sooner than I am used to. I'm from an era when stuff lasted longer than 5 minutes. Thank you for the opportunity to reply.
