Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great combo unit This refrigerator does a great job of meeting our needs. It is very quiet and easy to install. Great storage compartments. 8/25/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Fridge Best fridge to get if you're not going to spend 10K on a viking. 4/28/10
Rated 5 out of 5 by THe Best We remodeld our kitchen and I have had this refrigerator for 5 years - absolutely no problems. I was advised by my contractor/brother to not get Wolf or SubZero - too many problems. The Kitchenaid looks as good - is less expensive - trouble free - and we love it. We also purchased Kitchenaid Dishwasher, Microwave, Stove and Warming Drawer. Have only had 1 small problem with the Stove - a fuse. 9/17/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by flawless This appliance is simply excelent in every way. I've read other reviews where various buyers have experienced problems with every thing from leaking doors to broken ice makers to uncontrolable temperatures. These are all examples of a poor instalation or improper use. If this fridge is properly installed and set up it performs as well as ones costing much much more. I matched this refrigerator with the combination wall oven and microwave and the dishwasher and trash compactor. All pieces are the architect series and all are performing just as advertised. I could not be happier with KithenAid and would recomend these appliances to any one who is looking for real quality. 6/19/12
