Worth the wait!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We waited a bit for this built-in fridge that was added during our kitchen remodel. I’m so glad we did. It was worth the wait! This fridge is beautiful and has so much more space than our previous french door bottom freezer GE model (which I also loved, btw).

Very disappointing
I bought this refrigerator to replace my 30 yr old Subzero. Both are 36" wide. I emptied my old subzero out and then tried to put everything I had in it into my new KitchenAid. Not even close. Far less storage in both the refrigerator and the freezer. Every thing is plastic; veggie bins are very small. No egg holder trays. The glass shelving is very lightweight. The freezer is pathetic; has worthless partitions that make organizing a challenge. Ice making capability is terrible. While it is an attractive refrigerator, it is NOT for someone who entertains a lot and needs storage. If it had more shelves that would be helpful that the compartments in the door are a joke. Too much wasted space on having individuals compartments rather than continuous ones.

Great fridge
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just installed the refrigerator last weekend and an very happy with the performance. It's very clean and sleek inside. I love the charcoal filter inside. Lots of storage on the door. My only complaint is the vegetable drawers are a bit shallow. Overall very pleased with the fridge and the price

Looks Good but No Support
(This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I purchased the fridge to replace the same fridge but older model.The unit had an odour to it and the ice smelled so bad you could not use it.We tried contacting Kitchenaid and it was impossible to speak to anyone.My wife was on hold for 62 mins. and then promptly cut off.

Poor craftmanship
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The refrigerator works well but the quality of craftmanship is very poor. Sharp edges on freezer door and corner seams that don't match up. We are awaiting our second round of doors to hopefully get ones that are better made. For the price tag, the poor quality was extremely disappointing and surprising. We were told, "this is just how KitchenAid builds them now". Wish we were told that before our purchase.

Great features
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Functional, good looking, works well, good storage
Good but long backlog and poor drawer design
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought the refrigerator in July and it took almost a month to get delivered due to backorder. Overall, I'm happy with the refrigerator. My only real complaint is the drawers don't fit well. It's almost like the installed the wrong drawers... there is a lot of slop and they feel like they don't fit in the slides. If you aren't careful when pulling them out, they will fall out of the refrigerator.
