Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful product and has great features! I purchased the refrigerator, microwave, stove, and dishwasher. I love Kitchenaid brand and love all their features! I am impressed on how nice they look and don't show all the fingerprints! May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Large capacity, great features, low profile hinges! Great value and Kitchenaid quality. This large refrigerator provides ample and convenient storage space the top shelf easily fits multiple gallon cartons of milk juice or your beverages of choice. There are many spaciousdrawers and compartments for all of your needs. The low profile hinges make it look more of like a custom built-in appliance and the internal halogen lighting is brightand sleek. The external touch screen is fantastic. May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my KitchenAid refrigerator! The only complaint I have is the price of the water filter and the frequency of replacing it. Great roominess. Love the smaller shelves for items so they don't take up space for the larger ones. Refrigerator door swings very wide, making it easier to pull out larger items. Bottom shelves, the perfect size. Freezer is more than ample for this Italian cook! May 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 May 15, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like it a lot. Nice refrigerator but is noisy when running and especially when producing ice cubes ...could use more insulation to keep it a little quieter when doing its normal things! Also...door shelves should be interchangeable to make it easier to reconfigure. May 15, 2013
