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.

    Good Looking, Easy to Use

    By Jerimiah

    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 happywithfrig

    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.

    Good product, but could use a couple of improvements

    By Froghenry

    from Florida

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

    I bought this product last month, so we are still adjusting to it. There is plenty of room in the refrigerator, but we would like to have more room in the freezer. We also regret that we did not purchase a model with an in-door ice and water dispenser.

    kitchen aid refrigerator freezer

    By LEBj

    from Sacramento County, CA, United States

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

    This is a nice unit. it is good to only open half of the unit instead of the entire face to access refrigerated items. The entire unit including the refrigerator and the freezer has much less space because it is a built-in cabinet depth. I have already scheduled a repair visit as the inside upper door flap is not attached properly. It appears to be a manufacturing defect. Too bad the quality control check did not see this. The person who placed the door flap in place had to have noticed and "jerry-rigged" the door flap to fit.

    DO NOT BUY!!

    By smacbuck

    from Kansas City, MO, United States

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

    They DO NOT make replacement control boards for this model and from personal experience and web mentions, they fail at a significant rate. I have one that is barely 5 years old, the board failed and the only option is to pull it and ship to one of several services that will rebuild. Turn around time is at least 2 weeks, so you'll be using a cooler and ice. IMO, beyond irresponsible to stop making parts for such an expensive unit that tries to market against SubZero, etc. I'll never buy another KitchenAid or Whirlpool appliance again. Be warned...

    No water dispenser

    By melinhart

    from Undisclosed

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

    We just got this fridge installed in our renovated kitchen. Also just found out there is no water dispenser anywhere. They tout the filter - but I guess that is just for filtered water ice. Ridiculous not to have a way to get water. (Many French door fridges have a water dispenser inside.) I do NOT recommend this for anyone with kids. I am seething over this.

    Freezer not as good as I would like

    By Meghan

    from Newport, RI, United States

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

    I have this Kitchenaid for a few years now and I like my Sub Zero better. The design is nice enough but the freezer is not on a separate compressor from the frig so it does not run as well as I would like. The ice bucket freezes up and makes it difficult to get the ice out. There is ice building up around the aperture of the freezer drawer which I have to break off.
