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.

SatinGlide® System with Soft-Close

Add a luxury experience to the crisper drawers. The ball bearing rollers and glides allow effortless in-and-out movement even when fully loaded.

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.

Automatic Ice Maker

Ensures that you have a constant supply of ice for entertaining.

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.

Intuitive Controls

Intuitive controls make it easy to precisely adjust the temperature of both the refrigerator and freezer.

Adjustable Spill-Resistant Glass Shelves

are easy to clean and help prevent messes from spilling over into other parts of the refrigerator. The shelf edges are nano-etched with a finely textured surface that helps contain spills, and lets you use the whole shelf from edge-to-edge.

Fit System Limited Guarantee1

This installation guarantee ensures KitchenAid Brand Built-in Refrigerators will replace your existing cabinet cut-out of a standard comparable built-in refrigerator model that is 36", 42" or 48" inch wide or kitchenAid will provide up to $300 for a professional to adjust your cabinets2.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not recommend Replaced old KitchenAid with this one. BAD design!! Both doors must be open to access right hand drawers. French door flap attaches with flimsy plastic tabs. Poor installation resulted in breaking the first week. Bad repair. Another year and two more repair visits to replace part. Hard to keep clean, too shallow, NO freezer space. Fortunately, we have a Whirlpool in the garage. This KitchenAid is a “show pony.” Not worth the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Refrigerator, great LED lighting I bought the 42" in 2016, got a lemon at first, but was immediately replaced with a new one. If you do not like the fact that you have to open both doors in a French door refrigerator to access the inside drawers - do not get one. I like the very large drawer for storage, so I can live with opening both doors. The freezer section isn't large, but I buy fresh groceries every two days or so and do not freeze a lot of food so it is large enough for me. Buy a different style if this one doesn't suit you, but KitchenAid products are great and I have two houses with them and have had no trouble.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the French door because it is very spacious I like it so far the only down side you can not open the right side drawer unless you open the left door

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Design and Information Flaws Info provided with unit was not complete( identification of storage bins). Call to customer service helped find needed info. Model #/serial number for this unit does not provide access to accurate info on this unit ( photos and info provided does not match this unit completely). Drawers on right side are not completely openable with only the right door open.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doors slam shut all the time It's attractive in and out, well lit, ample space. My problem, doors to heavy and swing to fast-that they slam all the time. When they do, the food stuffs in the door fly around. Ice maker stopped working 6 months in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3.5 Year review We have had this fridge for over 3 1/2 years. No issues since installation. We wouldn't hesitate to buy another. Other than the freezer section being smaller than our previous refrigerator, there aren't many negatives about it. Largest quirk is the way the door seal works. The left side won't always "auto close" like the right side will. We understand that's the design. We're ok with it. Stainless finish still looks like new!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst experience ever with a refrigerator I bought the refrigerator 2.5 years ago from sears. I was lucky that I bought the sears warranty with it. I had over 1/2 dozen of service call. Sears have replaced most of the computer components. This year I had three service calls. The last one was 3 months ago. I came home today and the same problem I had before; the upper refrigerator was not cooling while the freezer was working. I lost all my refrigerator food. I think this lemon product. Sears will not replace unless they can't fix???? I hope Kitchenaid reads this review and help me out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Greatest We purchased this wonderful fridge in August. We love the wide open spaces. One unique feature we really enjoy is how we can see all the items within the fridge. The bottom freezer is the highlight. It is so much more convenient, as this replaced a side by side.
