An expensive refrigerator is fine IF it works...

Submitted by Dave D - 7/13/2017

I bought this as a replacement for my previous Kitchenaid built-in refrigerator, that one lasted 20+ years before it had to be replaced, this came DOA. It has been hooked up for 9 hours now and it STILL has not started to cool off inside. All of the food is ruined and is sitting on my curb awaiting the trash pickup tomorrow morning, perhaps this new refrigerator should be right next to it? I have never been so disappointed in an appliance, it is supposed to be superior in every imaginable way to my previous Kitchenaid. More efficient, more high tech, more beautiful and certainly more capable, it has failed me in all of these ways. So now I have to wait until Kitchenaid takes care of it, all I know is I paid a lot of money for this experience to drag out over the course of a long day, and apparently, I'm going to have to go through it all over again. I'm sitting here tonight aggravated beyond belief because I can't believe that this refrigerator made it through Quality Control. I have never had such a bad experience with a Kitchenaid appliance before. One thing is for sure, the only satisfactory outcome is a new refrigerator, as a repaired, defective refrigerator is not acceptable. Even then, I'm out my day today, my patience, a refrigerator full of food and with the promise of yet another day to rectify this. I will update this review as soon as a solution is offered.

Better than ever

Submitted by fifi - 6/2/2017

This refrigerator is a replacement for 15-year old KItchenaid model with the same features. The freezer of the previous model was no longer able to keep ice cream cold enough; when taken out of the freezer the consistency was between soft and soupy. The only problem with the new model is the ice cream is too hard, even at the highest freezer setting. Otherwise, the refrigerator is an improvement in every way. It seems to have greater capacity and provide greater visibility and access. It provides ease in changing the waste filter which the old model did not. Finally, it appears to be well-made an hopefully will last a long time.

Worth the money

Submitted by Michael Ann - 4/22/2017

So nice to have a 42" built in frig after having a 36" counterdepth. Plenty of room for everything and great internal layout. I haven't even moved any of the shelves since you put them in the right places! Built-ins are really expensive vs. traditional refrigerators but worth the money.

Yes, I recommend this product

Very pleased overall

Submitted by Ginny - 3/24/2017

This is an excellent refrigerator with very nice features - a beautiful addition to our new kitchen. For a 42-inch counter depth refrigerator, it offers ample space for fresh and frozen food and shelving is versatile. I have three minor complaints: 1) the butter compartment does not have a lip on the shelf, so when the door to the compartment is opened, the contents can slide off easily onto the floor; 2) if the icemaker is not used for a week or so, the ice will stick together, requiring emptying the ice container on the door and starting over with a new batch; 3) seeing the exposed door hinges where the refrigerator meets the floor looks unfinished when viewed from a distance. A cover plate or grill piece would be nice. Otherwise, I am very pleased with the purchase.

Yes, I recommend this product

Only Small Annoyances

Submitted by Rick - 2/7/2017

Only have had this a month and the overall operation is great. Noise level is low, cools quickly and makes ice quickly as well. Only issues we have noticed this far is that the stainless steel finish shows fingerprints a little too much. Although the frig operates quietly, the ice maker is very noticeable when it is refilling the water into the ice tray for the next batch of ice cubes.

Submitted by Gigi - 12/16/2016

I've only had this refrigerator for a month, but so far it has worked flawlessly. The look and built in feel of this particular model really make my kitchen look "professional" and since we invested in a Viking stove we felt the refrigerator needed to be of the same caliber-and it is. All shelves and door shelves are adjustable, it almost runs silently and the icemaker is great.

So far it's great

Submitted by Paul - 12/11/2016

This replaced our 19 year old kitchenaid. We have only had it for two months but really like it. Pros are; easy clean stainless steel, inside lighting, large door baskets, auto-light on the external water/ice maker. Normal running is very quiet (compared to our old model), it does make some very temporary funny noises now and then (ice making). I am concerned that the coils at the top will not be easy to clean, as you have to come in from the side. It was a couple of days before the temperature settled in, but we very happy with the temp now. The fridge door swings wide a bit too easily for me and anything you have in the door baskets clang around. Also, the butter tray has no lip and so you have to be careful when you open it that the butter doesn't fall out. Four stars cause I'm a hard grader and it's only been with us two months. I would buy again unless I had several thousand more to spend on Sub-Zero.

Extremely Disappointing

Submitted by Amy - 12/1/2016

The water filter is in the grill on the bottom. It doesn't eject well so you're on your hands and knees trying not to cut yourself on the grill. The drawer fronts fall off easily. For the size of the appliance, the capacity is laughable. It came as the "upgrade" in my 4400 square foot home. We have a family of six. I would need to shop daily if not for my second garage refrigerator (smaller but holds way more). Looks nice but that's all.

The Kitchenaid is a fine appliance.

Submitted by Dee - 10/28/2016

Three things that I would change. The ease of putting the ice maker back in place and the hinge covering the motor area. The GE that I had before was on a permanent hinge that just lifted up rather than coming off as the this one does. Much easier for a woman to clean coils. The third thing is that the ice and water dispenser should accommodate taller glasses.

Submitted by Gramma - 9/17/2016

We were forced to buy a new Kitchenaid refrigerator when the one we had had for 25+ years was finally showing signs (not freezing ice cream) that it was getting tired. The new refrigerator is the same size and style as the old one and was able to fit into the same space with very little cabinet work. I love all the new features inside and out. I am looking forward to the same excellent service from the new refrigerator and service personnel as we had from the old Kitchenaid.

Submitted by Tina - 9/12/2016

We are happy we decided to go with this refrigerator. It is a built-in model and works beautifully in our new kitchen. Although this is a good size refrigerator, it does not over-whelm our room because it is built-in. The only thing we are not happy with is the section on the top of the door which, we assume, is for butter. There is no dish or lip on the shelf and, when you open the cover, the butter flies out. Other than that...we are very happy with it. We have it installed about a month as of this writing.

Spacious...lots of ice....

Submitted by Patty - 9/9/2016

I am pleasantly surprised with this major purchase. The amount of ice it puts out is great -- and with a good degree of 'force' unlike other dispensers that churn and churn to put out a few cubes. The space and layout inside is very accommodating. And the whole appliance is so quiet and smooth - the drawers have a solid glide, the doors shut nicely. Very smooth.
