Easy to clean

araineyday 7/30/2019

I purchased my 36" built-in refrigerator over one month ago, to replace the previous 19 year old 36" KitchenAid built-in refrigerator, and am very pleased with the new refrigerator. I love the braided door handles, which are very easy to keep clean. The bins are self-closing, the refrigerator door can stay partially "open" without being totally "open", the interior lights do not light up until after the door is open about 12" (which is a great feature), the interior color of the refrigerator has received plenty of compliments and the freezer spacing is much better (with a separate ice tray bin). Overall, the product is a welcome addition to my kitchen.

Impressive Refrigerator

bobbobbob 7/5/2019

We purchased to replace a 20 year old counter depth unit and we are quite happy. I would say that it seems very modern and well made. We would like to see a simple on off switch for ice maker. We like the split shelving giving the option to customize the space well. Perhaps a simple suggestion would be helpful for initial set-up.

Very clean built in cabinet look.

Very happy with this commercial look, built in refrigerator. Roomy and the one door allows full access to everything.

Very Spacious

DawnV14 6/17/2019

I had this installed a couple weeks ago. It replaced a 16 yr old GE Monogram which had given us nothing but trouble for a long time. I quizzed various repairmen and they all recommend KitchenAid. I went with the single door bottom freezer and so far I am so happy. There is so much more space than our old 36 inch side by side, the interior is beautiful and well thought out and, aside from hearing the ice maker occasionally, it is extremely quiet.

Counter depth with more space inside

Cook in Texas 5/7/2019

I've had this refrigerator for over a year and am so happy with my choice. The single door gives more room on the door shelves than the french door model. Quiet, efficient, lots of ice for our family. Well lit interior and highly adjustable shelves very helpful. I get many compliments.

Unreliable?

Ed536 2/12/2019

This is a factory replacement for the same model which failed multiple times the first year until FINALLY you gave up trying to fix it. All told, we were without a working fridge for about 3 weeks. Ask me in a couple years if this one is any good. I understand the occasional lemon but your delay in replacing it was unforgivable.

Really like the freezer!

Skippy2 2/12/2019

I needed a new counter depth fridge. This choice rose to the top. The fridge part seems much smaller than my prior fridge (same brand but older model) yet the freezer part is much better designed and functional. I'm adjusting to the odd LED lights.

Good overall

GH80 1/31/2019

I bought this refrigerator just over a year ago. It is quiet, keeps the temp very well and looks great. The platinum interior is a really nice design touch. Only drawbacks are the drawers in the fridge section - they feel kind of cheap and flimsy for the price of this appliance. Also, the freezer is really cramped - most of the space is allocated to the fridge.
