This 72-inch refrigerator is three inches taller than a standard counter-depth refrigerator. It fills the gap that can be left above many refrigerators, adding to its integrated appeal. A pull-out freezer drawer allows you to organize frozen items on three levels. And with the ExtendFresh™ Temperature Management System all of your ingredients will be held at the optimum temperature to maximize their flavor and texture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working great after 3 months After 3 months of operation I can say we are very happy with this refrigerator. It would have been 5 stars but for the installation related to the water line and electrical plug issue I documented in an earlier review with pictures. I have the frig set at the defaults (38/0 degrees F) per the manual. Compared to our old 1999 GE refrigerator, the fruit and vegetable storage is much better as the both fruit and veggies seem to stay fresh much longer. I don't miss the external ice dispenser as the in freezer ice drawer is convenient and we avoid the issues of the in door ice maker that seems to dominate negative reviews of those sorts of refrigs. Very quiet and doors open and close smoothly. Highly recommend the French Doors with bottom freezer as it puts the things you need daily at eye level. Our old refrigerator had the fruit/veggie bins at the bottom and it was pain to load and see what was there. I was able to get the Kitchenaid rebate and only wish it was EnergyStar rated so I could get a tax credit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money We almost bought another fridge made in Australia that was completely built-in (fully integrated) for the same price. However, we like the fact that the doors on this Kitchenaid open all the way. Many "fully integrated" fridges do not. Hubby thought the idea of a French door fridge was a little silly but now that we've had it for 3 months, he LOVES how easy it is to find everything. The ice-maker holds much more ice than did our previous 48" top-of-the-line $10,000 side-by-side which makes him REALLY happy! Yes, small items will fall off the back of the two top glass shelves. Small items are hard to find on the top shelves of any fridge so simply store your small items (like juice drink cartons) on the bottom shelf where they are easier to find anyway. The freezer compartment does not hold much. Depending on the size of your family and how much you rely on frozen food, this could be an issue. One design suggestion: The cold water dispenser inside the fridge is a great idea. However, it should be on the right side not the left. Most people are right handed and it is a bit awkward holding the right and the left door opens just to get cold water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE!!! Ice Maker Bin Drawer Freezes & Locks Up We are now on our second refrigerator. The first one took 10-1/2 months with 6 or 7 service calls, new parts, sealing the door, changing gaskets, installing new rails (glides) on the bin - nothing worked. In the end the Protection Agreement finally authorized a replacement refrigerator. It was an extremely trying and frustrating experience. Since this is a Panel Ready unit, we wanted to be able to reuse our expensive panels that match the cabinetry; so we tried the next year's model. The first several months were relatively trouble-free. Then the ice build-up on the rails started to appear, the bin stuck and has to pulled with two-handed force to be able to access the ice at all. The tiny magnet which is designed to secure the ice bin to the main freezer drawer front is inadequately small and will not lock and hold in place. Beyond all this, the interior water dispenser drips and there is constant wiping. The refrigerator section is set at 38 degrees, as suggested, and often freezes food and drink items, i.e. cottage cheese, club soda, a jar of roasted red peppers, etc. I am now starting this service nightmare all over again with the second machine - hope it doesn't take another 10 months to be resolved. Save your sanity - Don't buy this model! t buy this machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to get into So far love it! I was looking for a unit but do not like stainless steel. Cabinet ready is beautiful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MISLEADING Firstly called counter depth, but it isn't. Sold panel ready with perfectly flush built in images- it can't be done. Door hinge structure does not allow for a built in fridge. period.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Started with service call I wanted counter depth and panel ready. This is the most affordable option. Unfortunately the refrigerator section was not cooling upon install and we had to get service. Still waiting on repair but hopefully it will work well from her on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice We did a kitchen reno and got first use of the new fridge unit in the middle of August. Since that time we've delightedly gotten to enjoy its features and there are no complaints to speak of at this particular time. I*t's huge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Regarding black strips from the doors Have used this refrigerator several times for various clients, as well as myself - we have had the black sides painted to match the cabinetry - electrostatic painters can do this. Just make sure to remove everything from the freezer and fridge before painting if already installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not so awful as these amateurs think This refrigerator will work if you have any common sense. The dimensions and rough openings are listed. I would bet that most of the custom kitchen cabinets were bought at a discount major retail dealer where the customer and the salesman had no clue about what they were doing. If you had a cabinet shop build your cabinets, you picked the wrong shop. I build houses and I build cabinets. I don't have a problem with this. It makes me laugh to read these reviews. You people are something.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Picture showing the wood panels is not this Refrigerator Watch if you are looking at this refrigerator. The picture with the wood panels is actually of one of their built in units not this cabinet depth model and this refrigerator will look totally different. I was looking at it online and glad I actually found one at a retail store to see what it really looked like. Because it really wasn't going to give the look I wanted and I didn't want to pay double the cost for the built in unit I want with a black stainless which looks nice. I was replacing an older Amana that has wood panels and had a stainless trim around the edge of the door. There are few units on the market now that you can put wood panels on and none of then give a great look since there is no trim on the door edge so you see 2.5" of the black color of the door edge and then the wood panel on the front. They really should change the picture to one of the actual refrigerator and not the built in unit as it is really misleading. The rating I gave is because of the looks not the refrigerator itself.
