Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Unit! We had a 48" version of this same fridge at our previous house and liked it so well that when we remodeled the kitchen in this home we just went with it again. The 42" version was better for this floor plan

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value The last one I had went 15 years before it failed. If this one does the same I'll be happy. Good value for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice Refrigerator, some installation problems I purchased this KitchenAid built-in refrigerator from Ferguson Showroom in Ann Arbor, MI. The showroom staff was helpful and I like the refrigerator. However, it was delivered with the front kick-plates missing. It's been 2+ weeks, and after several calls, I still don't have resolution on getting the kick plates. The model I bought does not have a water and ice dispenser, which I miss ... but that was my choice

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought this refrigerator a few weeks ago, having previously owned a 42" side-by-side Kitchenaid refrigerator. The new refrigerator is more flimsy and less solidly built than the old; --n the booklet of instructions is cheapie, cheapie (printed on cheap paper and not easy to follow; whereas the old book was substantial and well-organized) -- the shelf organization is hopeless, with shelves so close to each other that very little fits in. If you remove a shelf, the refrigerator does not have adequate capacity. -- the fruit and vegetable bins do not have independent humidity controls I am very disappointed in this refrigerator and would not buy a KitchenAid again. -- the freezer shelves are too shallow with the result that many things simply don't fit in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from never ever again!! So $$ couldn't fit anything of size into it, forget a platter or a turkey. It broke 5 times last year thats 5 full fridge of food, frozen condiments! Unforgivable! It never worked right it has a simple design flaw that no one will fix! I will never ever buy any kitchen aide appliances again oh my kitchen aide matching double oven its broken too and only ever used 1 oven! KItchenaide should be ashamed! Save yourself don't do it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey, but looks good This refrigerator was purchased to match the suite of KitchenAid appliances pre-installed in our new home. It is more expensive than I would have liked, but we did a deal with our agent to make it happen so that we would have a coordinated kitchen. (The builder created a space that could only be filled with a couple of specific units.) It has more than enough space for two people. Nothing fancy going on, which is fine for us. The trays in the refrigerator door are not as accommodating as I wish they were, considering the height of the door.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems with cooling We purchased this unit 5 years ago and started having trouble with it last year. 1 year later and about 5 service calls across 3 different "certified" repair shops and it's worse. Use to get in the 40's, now it's in the 60 degrees. The last repair shop has been out 3 times and they have not been able to figure it out. They are saying they are ready to give up.
