22 Cu. Ft. Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator, Architect® Series II is rated 4.3507 out of 5 by 288.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design and features... with one problem We love this refrigerator so far, but have noticed that magnets stick very well to the surface of this unit. The Kitchenaid that we replaced was also stainless and magnets did not stick at all. We have already seen small areas of rust developing on the surface. This refrigerator is in our kitchen and never exposed to the outdoors. The rust dots seem to be happening near the handle and where small amounts of water splash from the dispenser. I have been successful in cleaning them off, but I am concerned that Kitchenaid has chosen to use an inferior quality of stainless steel on this model. I hope we can keep the rust from ever getting a foothold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we were looking for This refrigerator has been designed for a busy household. Its perfect for us. In a normal week: - the shelving and compartments in the doors means we can see everything we need; - it allows us to have designated areas for everything; - the double door opening means we only open the side for what we need; - the filtered water feature on the inside means we are drinking more water and it isn't taking up valuable shelf or door space. And then when we are entertaining it rises to the occasion very well - the space is incredible and the deli drawer has been a great way to keep large platters refrigerated and out of the way. We love it plain and simple

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Functional and Appealing I didn't want a freezer on the bottom because of limited capacity and having to pull my ice tray out. This design nailed it. The ice drawer automatically pull out and the baskets are designed for maximum capacity. I don't miss the dripping water mess on the front of the fridge but I still have ice cold water easily available right inside the door. The viability of the food in the fridge is great. I like that fact it isn't too deep which prevents food from being pushed to the back. Left over pizza boxes don't fit well but they fit in the deli crisper fine. This is the best functioning designed fridge I've ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great purchase I needed a new 'fridge as the water dispensing unit on the old one had failed . I specifically chose a 'fridge where the water dispenser was not on the door as that feature seems to be the first to go bad. This refrigerator has been great - it took a little adjustment to get used to having less space, but the plus has been that the depth of the shelves allow me to see what's hidden in the back. The freezer drawer is easy to access as well and has plenty of room for a family of 4. Another plus is that magnets work just fine on the stainless steel doors, so we haven't had to fore go the artwork!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fridge As a whole, I really like this fridge. It looks "built in" with the cabinetry in my kitchen. It holds quite a bit in the fridge. I've never had issues with storing anything in there. The freezer compartment is deceivingly large and I like having the ice tray. I have never used the water feature in the fridge because I have a brita. The stainless steel never really looks dirty but if it does, a quick spray with stainless steel cleaner works like magic. I've had the unit for a couple months now and no issues yet. My only complaint is that I wish there were more shelves with taller vertical space. Some bottles and cartons are just tall and the fridge can only hold so much of those.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent temperature and no cold spots. I love the quality and operation of the refrigerator. It is consistently the same temperature - it does not fluctuate and I don't have the cold spots that plagued my old refrigerator. The ice maker is a bit noisy as others have mentioned, but it does not bother me. My trick is to shut it off when it is full and then only restart when it is starting to run low. I love having the various shelves in the freezer so I don't need to constantly move items out of the way. The downside of the cabinet depth style is there is barely enough storage in the freezer for me and this is a one person household. However that is one of the pitfalls of cabinet depth and I knew that before purchasing and I love the look of the French door style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The noise you drive you crazy!!! This alone is reason not to buy We installed this refrigerator a couple weeks ago and the compressor noise will drive you crazy. You can hear this refrigerator from far away and through walls!! $3000 refrigerator should be SILENT!! This is the opposite. It is like having a mini worksite in my kitchen/living room year round as the compressor is the exact same sound as those compressors used for nail guns, etc...expect not quite as loud. My wife said "you might get used to it". Again pay $3000.00 and have to get used to it? Anyway, I will not get used to it. I will probably replace it as it drives me crazy. All the other features are GREAT but the sound is horrible

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok refrigerator First, the 2 things I love about this refrigerator. The ice maker and the water dispenser inside the refrigerator. Other than that, I must admit this is not my favorite new appliance. And I just replaced ALL of them. It looks nice and chic on the outside. But I find the inside very small compared to my old Kitchen Aid refrigerator. And the compartments are annoying and inefficient. The containers on the insides of both doors are not made for tall items. If you don't have a tall item packed in tightly, it falls over and out the doors when you open them. There is no place for a carton of eggs. The shelves are not easily adjustable. The freezer drawer is very small. This refrigerator is not made to be convenient and able to stock up for supplies.
