Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightest frig ever We bought this side by side and was surprised at how many inside lights come on when the door is open. It is beautiful on the outside and even better when the doors are open. Also has a lot of space to put foods & beverages in. LOVE IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great with a few minor annoinaces! Lots of room in this refrigerator. the only thing i don't like is that when i push on the door to close it, it doesn't swing shut all the way, maybe the doors are to full with food and heavy but it is annoying. Other than that it is great. Oh yes the ice maker works just fine but does not hold a lot of ice which could be a draw back since it doesn't reproduce the ice fast enough if it is near empty

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A nice looking step backwards We have had this behemoth for about 6 months now. It looks nice inside and out. The interior lighting is very nice. Otherwise it is a poor reflection of the 15 year old fridge it replaced. Water in door is not cold. Indoor ice maker is noisy, ice dispenser is sloppy and spews ice chips. We could never figure out how to install the "freshflow" air filter. I promise that none of the instructions matched what I held in my hand. It was a puzzle with no solution. The whole door display is silly, a lot of geegaws that do nothing of value. The best I can say is that keeps cold, but any new fridge should do that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but broken within 1st year. Overall, we are very happy with all of our KitchenAid appliances. When we renovated our kitchen, we bought EVERY item KitchenAid had available, including this fridge. Its been great, we love the auto dispense on the water dispenser, but water filters are $30.00 each (Recommended to change every 6 months.) Our biggest complaint is that the display panel for the water/ice dispenser is seperating from the fridge. Thankfully this happened within the first year of ownership.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I bought the fridge two years ago, I loved the design and bright lights. However as others have mentioned, I don't like the limited ability to move shelves up or down, the door bins are quite narrow and ice maker is noisy and messy. However the worst part is that the deli drawer and bottom veg. crisper have both broken within a month apart. The corner plastic edge that clips to the face of the drawer just breaks. The drawers were not over filled or heavy at the time. I replaced the deli drawer for $108.00 CA plus shipping and now will have to do the same for the other. I have had other much more inexpensive refrigerators over the years and never have I had this type of breaking going on. Not very pleased overall and would not recommend a buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sisde by side fridge. looks super a very good product. we would buy it again. two problems. the doors need clearance around it to open fully for example to pull a shelf out and change the level. so be careful about the space around it. second, the ice maker spits ice out on the floor. you have to hold the glass at the to of the dispense area to try to prevent that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful design This is a great refrigerator. The best I've had and it's my second Kitchen Aid.. Very sleek and easy to use. I enjoy it every time I open the door or even just looking at it. The only feature I'm not happy with is the ice maker. It makes the ice freeze together and then when you use the ice dispenser, it ends up with ice falling on the floor and coming out as ground up instead of full cubes. But it's still worth the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this refrigerator I like this refrigerator, but have had some problems. I have had to order a new freezer door, the panel on the front never works correctly and sometimes it says the door is open, even when it's closed so you can't use the water till it goes off. but over all it's a good refrigerator
