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.

    This fridge looks great, but unfortunately it is not energy efficient and the build quality is very poor. We have had several problems with it in the first 2 months of ownership. The unit is also loud and occassionally drops the temperature by 10 degrees. It would also be nice if the unit had an interior water fill like some of the other kitchen aid units.

    Terribly Disappointing

    By 

    from Montclair, NJ, United States

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

    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.

    Great unit

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

    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.

    Refrigerators replacement;

    By 

    from Toronto, ON, Canada

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

    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.

    Excellent design

    By 

    from La Quinta, CA, United States

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

    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.

    Great refrigerator

    By 

    from La Quinta, CA, United States

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

    We owned the same refrigerator in our previously home and loved it so much that we replaced a working GE refrigerator with our new Kitchen Aid I think the best feature is the ice making no ice or water falling on the floor.

    Good Looking, Easy to Use

    By 

    from Vista, CA, United States

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

    After 13 1/2 years our old refrigerator went out. We needed a 42 inch wide to fit the space. The Kitchen Aid met our requirements at a reasonable price. I gave it a "Good" rating at this time. After we have used the product a little longer, I hope to give it an "Excellent" rating.

    Love the frig

    By 

    from WI

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

    I am pleasantly surprised with this purchase. The refrigerator is huge and I love being able to fit large casserole pans etc. The freezer is bigger than expected and things don't get buried like I thought they might. Being smaller is actually good for me as things don't get lost in the bottom. My only complaints so far is that it is very loud (intermittently) and the water filter (for ice cubes) will need replacement much more frequently than expected. We rarely use ice (maker is off most of the time) and already filter is well used (it does give the percent usage which is helpful). Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
