Preserva® Food Care System

Two independent cooling systems provide a dedicated refrigeration unit to help keep food fresh longer, and a separate system for frozen food. The FreshFlow™ Air Filter helps minimize odors while the FreshFlow™ Produce Preserver helps delay over-ripening.


Gives the high-end custom kitchen look of a built-in refrigerator.

Professionally-Inspired Design

Combines a bold blend of professionally-inspired styling with sleek touches for the home. This beautiful side-by-side refrigeration unit features Satin Textured Handles and the KitchenAid® Badge, a symbol of uncompromised quality.

In-Door-Ice® System

Adds interior room in the refrigerator with an ice bin that mounts on the inside left door of the refrigerator, keeping it out of the refrigerator compartment and allowing for extra shelf space.

LED Lighting

Uses less energy than incandescent bulbs. Multiple lights are purposefully placed throughout the refrigerator and freezer, making it easy to find items at a glance.

Adjustable Spill Resistant Shelves

Prevents messes from spilling over into other parts of the refrigerator. In place of a lip that can trap foods, the shelf edges are nano-etched with a finely texture surface that contains spills and lets you use the whole shelf from edge-to-edge.

Exterior and Ice and Water Dispenser

Provides freshly filtered, great tasting water and ice that can be conveniently found right in the refrigerator door.

Clear Door Bins with Metallic Accents

Allow you to see labels right through the bins, helping you keep condiments and other items organized. Each bin is removable, making it easy to pull out, chop up and store an amazingly fresh produce, and simply slide back into the fridge.

Measured Water Fill

Displays and automatically dispenses water in ounces, cups, or liters. It can be programmed to pour a measured amount, helping make food prep easier. It can even be set up to fill essential items on a daily basis like a coffee pot or a water bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and features The refrigerator was installed in January 2018. We have not had any issues. Keeping the outside clean from prints has been a none issue. My wife loves to use magnetic photo etc on the frig and we are able to do this with no problem, which is great for a GIGI. It is very quite and efficient. Could not be happier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE-Design Flaw! We chose and purchased this refrigerator on 9/2016 from a reputable appliance store because of the dimensions, look and KitchenAid name. We also purchased the matching KitchenAid dishwasher for the same reason...Very classy looking. On 2/5/2018, the refrigerator stopped making ice and we were not able to troubleshoot the problem and called our authorized repairman. After he was finished diagnosing the issue and made some calls for parts, he told us we would need a WHOLE NEW DOOR @ approx. $1500.00.....The problem was the wiring at the bottom of the freezer door had shredded/broken! We saw it with our own eyes! He described the design flaw. The wires at the bottom corner of the freezer door become stressed when you open and close the door!!!!!! I had a year warranty, but it was expired. I called the company I bought it from who referred me to KitchenAid Customer Service. I described the design flaw issue and, in addition, the drawer of the "crisper" fell apart just that morning! It came off when I tried to open it. I told her I felt we bought a $3,500 lemon......The Customer Service agent was very knowledgeable and understanding. She had to speak with her supervisor first to see what they could do. The answer, NOTHING..."sorry, we have an outlet store you can go to for another refrigerator!" I am very understanding that things can go wrong...I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in KitchenAide that there was no recourse for us due to THEIR DESIGN FLAW. I felt as if they should assume some responsibility. Sounds crazy, but, I feel betrayed by a company that I thought was reputable and had excellent products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very cheaply made (inside) This is my second KitchenAid. We just remodeled our kitchen and bought the KitcheAid side by side because it was the best looking side by side and we love the black stainless steel color. However, the drawers inside are SO CHEAP. Come on KitchenAid!!! could have put in nicer drawers. very disappointed!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems nicely made, but some quirks Pros: seems well built; beefy trays; pleasing design, inside and out; very quiet; well lit; nice looking, inside and out; ice-maker is responsive, doesn't jam; water shows ounces dispensed. Cons: can only set temps, but can't monitor them; except for door, shelves are not adjustable; a little too much effort to push water and ice-maker levers; ice-maker sometimes throws ice a bit sideways; instructions for adjusting doors neglect mention of lock-nut; doors should have been aligned better at the factory.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy customer. Got this fridge one month ago. We had the older model which failed. Lighting is great. Shelf design is improved. Things seem very easy to get to and very clear. (No lurking produce or dairy). Ice maker and water fine. Collection tray easy to clean and water doesn't spill onto floor. We'll see how it holds up
