5.0 out of 5 stars Love this thing. Goodbye clunky subzero. April 27, 2010
Color Name:Monochromatic Stainless Steel
I want to hug this thing every morning! But I won't- that way lies madness. Besides, I don't think DH would like it. Why am I so happy? Because..I had a 25 year old, noisy Sub Zero for which I could no longer find parts. It had to go. Unfortunately, we had remodeled the kitchen around it. So I thought I was stuck with another Sub Zero. Why do I say "stuck"? Aren't Sub Zeros the very best? Well, call me a rube , but to me it was essentially a shinier, shallower, taller, louder version of my cheap Sears fridge in the basement. Not to mention that a new Sub Zero costs over $8000, for Pete's sake!

What to do? Enter the KitchenAid counter depth French door fridge. Fantastic. For about $6000 less I have a fridge that takes up less space but has more room inside.(It's magic!) The counter depth fits perfectly in the space where the Sub Zero loomed. The KitchenAid is pretty and quiet and well organized on the inside. Now I have a new, quiet, (did I mention quiet?) fridge with more room inside. It has an interior filtered water dispenser, an excellent deli drawer,(wide and shallow so you can see everything) see -thru veggie bins, and even a neat little scoop in the ice bin. The doors open and close independently of one another. I also like having two smaller doors instead of one heavy door. The water filter is within easy reach in the top of the fridge.
The freezer is also well organized. The ice bin can be rolled out of the way to make use of the space beneath. The freezer also has bins which might , for example, keep melted Popsicle goo from leaking all over the freezer and the floor and the ceiling beneath. Just in case.
AND my cabinet maker is going to put a new shelf in the space that opened up over the KitchenAid. (The Sub Zero was 12" inches taller). I finally have a place to store those huge trays my mother gave me for Christmas. More fridge taking up less space for less money- what's not to like?

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it. April 9, 2010
Color Name:Monochromatic Stainless Steel
We purchased this fridge last summer after completing a kitchen remodel. We have the unit in white (which is magnetic) because we did our kitchen in B&W. We considered a black model but chickened out. I should say that one door bracket was bent when we received it (though it still opened and closed) but they sent us a new one ASAP which was easy to replace.

What do I like about the fridge: Large interior, holds 2 gallons of milk on the DOOR, easily holds a pizza box, even though counter depth. Controls are easy to read, and intuitive...set temp by actual temp. Counterdepth is great...nothing gets lost in the back of the fridge and it fits in the room great. Bottom freezer is much better than I expected, everything used to always fall out of my old top freezer. French doors open and close easily (maybe this is obvious, but I was uncertain how it would work). Water dispenser in fridge is fast and cold. Shelves come out very easily for cleaning. Ice cube maker is fast, quiet, and there no melting and refreezing of icecubes like in my older fridge.

What I like less: It is tall, which is good for me, but less so for the kids. Deli drawer is somewhat hard to get back in once you take it out. Somewhat hard to balance to get the doors even, but once you do this you are done forever. Water dispenser drips for a second after you stop.

Over all, this fridge was a great purchase. We'll see how it lasts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! January 27, 2012
By moellen
Color Name:Monochromatic Stainless Steel
This is a really nice looking refrigerator with great features. However, within two years of purchase, the compressor, the thermister and the control board have all had to be replaced. Kitchenaid warrantys this rather expensive product for one year only. When I contacted customer service for assistance with what is obviously a lemon, I was told "that's why we sell extended warrantys." The local appliance dealer has been great in trying to help, but even they can't get Kitchenaid to budge. Do yourself a favor - do not buy Kitchenaid!

5.0 out of 5 stars We LOVE our new refrigerator! November 20, 2011
Color Name:Monochromatic Stainless Steel
We previously had an LG stainless steel French Door refrigerator, and it was fine, but we had to leave it behind when we moved. When shopping for the right refrigerator for the new home, I did a ton of research and decided on this one for 2 reasons: 1) all of the built-in appliances in the new house are Kitchenaid, and 2) this model is not only counter-depth, but it's 72" tall. We were thrilled when it arrived as it fits beautifully into the space and it matches the rest of the kitchen.

But when we started actually using it, I realized how very glad I am that we left that LG model behind! The drawers, both in the refrigerator and freezer, glide smoothly, and I love that the door shelves are lined. The deli drawer is great, because we can lay everything out in a single layer and see everything easily. We also love the water dispenser inside (the exterior keeps a very clean and simple look, as a result) and that it can be used to fill pitchers. Clear-faced vegetable drawers: my sister and I were making dinner, and she saw me open the vegetable drawer to look inside. She asked, "why did you open the drawer to see what's in it?" I chuckled to myself. Old habits die hard! But yes, you can see what's in the drawers without having to open them - I'll just have to get used to the awesomeness.

The interior is also much roomier than I expected! Granted, we do have a 2nd refrigerator in our utility room, but it is currently empty - we'll probably use the 2nd one for overflow during the holidays. This one is sufficient in size for our every day needs.

As for keeping the stainless steel beautiful, based on other reviews, I purchased the Weiman wipes, and they definitely do the trick on ALL of our Kitchenaid stainless appliances (they are fantastic!
