        Comments about KitchenAid Custom Overlay 42" Built-In Side By Side Refrigerator:

        Just moved in to a house with a very open floor plan. Quiet operation and looks were important to us and this fridge is great. A bottle of water placed in the freezer is solid pretty quickly. Because it is cabinet depth, capacity is limited, but we have a second fridge in the utility room.

        Keeps temps and has a great ice maker

              Comments about KitchenAid Custom Overlay 42" Built-In Side By Side Refrigerator:

              After doing hours and hours of research on a built in fridge that is panel ready we went with this one because of the dependability of Kitchen Aid products the good reviews and price. I think it's the best fridge for the price point that you can buy in this category. One thing I was very nervous about was the ice maker. A lot of fridges have a small ice maker that can never keep up when you have guest over. Not this one. This thing has a huge icemaker that flows out non stop. For a built in it has more room than most that I have encountered. You can actually fit 5-6 things on the top shelf, to include, gallon of milk, half gallon of milk, juice and two liters of soda. It is surprisingly roomy for a built in fridge. We have had it for four months now and the only issue that we have had (not a real big deal) is that is does make a knocking noise from time to time. It is an odd sound I'm not sure what that is in relation do but it does it occasionly. It doesn't effect the performance and you have to be in the room to hear it. I would definitely purchase again and highly recommend it to others.

                    It's been about 3 months since I've been using this refrigerator and its a great size With adjustment in temperature. The freezer is a little small but it has great storage and it is a very quiet fridge.

                          I had the same fridge for only six years and it could not be fixed . So I was forced to buy anotherone , the company did prorate a new one foe me but it was an expense I was not expecting 6 years into an appliance that I paid top dollar for . Costomer service was good , I hope this one lasts longer than the first purchase

                                      We bought this refrigerator about two months ago as a replacement for our last Kitchenaid Refrigerator. It was getting old and we needed a newer more efficient one. We love the layout of it and how much food it can hold. We love the two large vegetable crispers, as we eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. We also love the meat drawer and it's temperature control. We really love the control panel that tells us the temperature of both the freezer and the refrigerator. We love a side by side and the new ice maker and bin is awesome.

                                          I would have liked to rate the refrigerator excellent for all area's. However, we purchased this unit to replace a very similar Kitchen Aid Model which did not come close to working for it's full expected service life.

                                              Purchased the refrigerator in 2006 and have had the main circuit board replaced twice. This time the turn around is 4 weeks! For the $$ you would think it would last more than 7 years! My fruit and vegetables don't last any longer than in my old unit..in fact I think it is worse. I really researched units before deciding on the model...hope this review helps someone.

                                                I recently replaced an older Jenn Air side by side refrigerator with a new Kitchen Aid of similar size and features. So far, I have been extremely happy with its design and performance. There is plenty of room and it holds a lot of food both in the freezer section and the refrigerator section. The icemaker produces a large amount of ice which is helpful when entertaining. I am hopeful it will be more reliable and require less service than the previous Jenn Air model that was in the house when we purchased our new home.
