Product Details

KitchenAid Stainless Steel Built-In French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - KBFC42FTS

The world’s first built-in French door refrigerator is here, and there is room for endless possibilities! The versatile design provides the widest refrigerator space available. And, with 22.6 cubic feet of space, you get the largest refrigeration capacity of any built-in bottom freezer refrigerator on the market.

ExtendFresh™ Plus Temperature Management System
A thermostat in the freezer and a thermistor in the refrigerator independently monitor temperatures to help ensure all of your ingredients remain at the appropriate temperature for maximum taste and texture.

AquaSense™ Base-Grille Filtration System – Filtered by P–UR®
A filter reduces impurities for fresh-tasting water and is located on the base grille, so it doesn’t take away usable refrigerator space.

I use all the special features ...each compartment and drawer. I like the convenience of the storage on the doors. There don't seem to be cold spots like my Viking Pro Series.

l like the bottom freezer, the compartments and drawers really help.

One suggestion for improvement is a filtered water dispenser, and perhaps one long drawer in the fridge for trays.

When building our new home we took pride in furnishing our kitchen with all Kitchen Aid appliances. In the past few years we have ran into several reoccurring problems with our ice maker and freezer. The freezer door is very hard to shut which in turn means it gets left open and the unit freezes up. The drain hole also clogs with ice because the ice maker will dump even when the ice drawer is open, causing the ice to fall into the bottom of the freezer. The buildup of ice in the bottom of our freezer has caused leaks and has caused severe damage to our hardwood floors.

        Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel Built-In French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        We have owned a KitchenAid Architect Series frog for 15 years, and it finally stopped working. We were overjoyed to find this one, which was a floor model with the "old" handle design. Since we have all KitchenAid appliances in our kitchen, we were very displeased to see that the handle has been completely redesigned now. So we were thrilled that the appliance store had this unused "old" model that we could purchase!

              We have had our new Fridge/Freezer for a couple of months. I was disappointed to find out after the fact that it is Not energy star. My mistake for not checking out carefully. Love the barn doors on top but the freezer is tiny and it is hard to see what you really have. Ice maker is excellent...actually has large capacity which is nice.

                    I am so happy to have this fridge. It replaced a 10 year old Monogram that over the years had been nothing but problems. This new fridge is the same size but a French door and the old was a side by side. The difference is amazing, so much more room. It truly fits twice the food and frozen goods of the side by side. The bin adjustments actually do what they claim to do, increasing and decreasing humidity depending on the bin setting. I could not be happier with this purchase

                          Before we bought this unit, we did a lot of research. We saw some reviews that indicated problems with the freezer. But so far, we have used it for three months, there has no issue with the freezer. The upper double doors shut properly. We are happy with the purchase and it is a good value for the price.

                                            My produce rots prematurely in the drawers and I wind up storing most in our prior KitchenAid fridge now in the basement , the ice maker's water filter leaked and damaged our hardwood floors, and the french doors flap open no matter how gently we close the doors.

                                            We bought this in February 2014 for a new kitchen. The French doors have bounced open from the start, and the friendly repairman said that's the nature of this fridge. It's lame, is what it is. Makes my husband crazy that a follow-up press is required every single time, and with three kids, you can be sure that doesn't always happen. NO, the alarm does not sound if the door is only slightly ajar. The strong seal of a SubZero has me wishing we'd just gone for it.

                                            Worse yet, in June the waterfilter cracked open (how?? repairman supposes it happened at the factory and took time to become prob) and flooded our kitchen, damaging the brand new hardwood floors.

                                            The fridge doesn't hold as much as I'd expected, but I have no complaints about the freezer or icemaker. The freezer is well designed and functions perfectly well.

                                            All in all, a disappointing purchase. If you can afford this fridge, you may want to save elsewhere and upgrade to the Sub Zero.

                                                  we love this built in French door refrigerator. We built our home two and a half years ago and put this refrigerator in and have had no issues. We love the way the freezer compartment is set up for organization and the ease of use of the top refrigerator is awesome.

                                                        Our kitchen aid built in refrigerator had to be replaced. We did stay with
                                                        Kitchen aid, although I had a concern, as we had a lot of trouble with our first
                                                        One. Hopefully this one will be much better. I do like the style of it.
                                                        And so far it is working well for me. Looks great in my kitchen, and it is very functional.

                                                              The layout of the french door refrigerator with the bottom freezer unit is a perfect combination for a busy housewife who loves to cook. I'm constantly in and out of the frigerator getting ingredients which are so easy to locate. The shelving is so functional allowing me to basically design my own interior space.
