  • Full-Width SatinGlide™ Crisper with Internal Dividers
  • ClearVue™ Dairy Compartment
  • SatinGlide™ ClearVue™ Slide N Lock™ Door Storage
  • ClearVue™ Slide N Lock™ Gallon Door Storage
  • AquaSense™ 400-Gallon Base-Grille Filtration System

  • Variable Speed Technology
    Our ExtendFresh™ continuous temperature management plus system independently monitors temperatures inside the refrigerator and freezer compartments. This helps prevent wide temperature swings and helps maintain the taste and texture of your foods. To provide even tighter temperature control, KitchenAid built-in refrigerators feature variable speed technology. The compressor, evaporator fan, and air baffle, operate at variable performance levels to match your cooling needs. During normal usage, the compressor will operate at the lowest, most efficient level, while reserving cooling power for when you need to quickly lower temperatures - like when a large quantity is added.
  • ClearVue™ Freezer Drawer
    See-through fronts make it easy to locate frozen food items.
  • ClearVue™ SatinGlide™ Crispers
    SatinGlide crisper design supports a clear front panel that makes it easy to see the contents from a standing position. The handle design is consistent with the rest of the refrigerator and makes the crisper easy to open. As you open the crisper, you'll notice the glide system that allows the crisper to move smoothly even with heavy loads. And, a magnetic, self-closing feature ensures that the crisper shuts even if it is left slightly ajar.
  • Adjustable Spillclean™ Glass Shelves
    A redesigned refrigerator shelf adds usable space by every measure. Additional refinements include a rounded front, a thicker glass with an etched surface, and a frosted edge.
  • FreshSeal™ Dairy Compartment
    Features a framed, hingeless design and a four-sided gasket that is magnetically sealed for optimal temperature management.
  • AquaSense™ 400-Gallon Base-Grille Filtration System
    A convenient supply of great tasting filtered water is the most important reason to have a water filtration system inside your refrigerator. With the AquaSense™ filtration system you'll enjoy 400 gallons of ice or water before you'll have to replace the filter. And when you do, the convenient base-grille location makes changing the filter as quick as a twist of your wrist while maximizing your usable refrigerator space.
  • ExtendFresh™ Ingredient Care Center
    This innovative feature lets you provide custom control for five distinct categories of food - including frequently stored items like meats, fruits, and vegetables. A simple adjustment allows you to create the interior environment so foods are stored at the proper temperature and humidity levels.
  • Whisper Quiet™ Refrigeration System
    The single, variable speed compressor runs continuously - allowing it to operate at much slower speeds. The compressor is also insulated to further absorb operating sounds.
  • Foam-in-Place Insulation
    Sealing the doors and cabinet with foam-in-place insulation adds strength and durability to the refrigerator and freezer doors.
  • ClearVue™ Slide N Lock™ Door Storage
    Refrigerator and freezer doors feature the adjustable flexibility of Slide N Lock™ door storage. Sturdy, self-contained bins help increase your refrigerator storage capacity by accepting frequently accessed items - including gallon containers. As part of the robust design, these door bins can easily support heavy items. And, if you adjust your loading patterns, you'll appreciate the Slide N Lock™ technology that makes it easy to move bins up and down.
