This frige exceeded our expectations

Pros:
1) Icemaker is awesome! Produces enough ice to build a small igloo.
2) Temperature resets quickly after frige warms during heavy in-and-out use and being near oven in smallish kitchen while cooking
3) Ability to set freezer and frige temperature to one's personal liking
4) Plenty of space in frige, but may need to remove one shelf to fit taller items.
5) Gallon door bin is a great feature
6) Quiet
Cons:
1) Tends to warm quickly in smallish kitchen when nearby oven is in use and during frequent door openings in-and-out (but see pro #2 above)
2) Stainless steel is prone to showing fingerprints
3) Discovered the hard way not to block the air vents so as to allow cool air to flow from freezer to frige. Needs better documentation regarding this issue.

Do not buy !

I bought this 6 years ago and was happy, until the main control board had a problem. It seems that this part has been discontinued and is impossible to find.

                    Previously owned a Jenn air built in and it never worked correctly. I finally got rid of it and bought the kitchenaid. It is very impressive looking. The refrigorator has lots of room, frezzer has small amount of shelf space, but a lot of door space. Quite as can be. Great ice maker, enough for a large party. Shows finger prints on door. Only had it one month so I am cautious to give it 5 stars. I write again in 1 year. If it is still working, it gets 5 stars.

                                It is a well made refrigerator. Thus far, only have one comment; it would be nice if the body did not show all my hand prints. A bit hard to keep clean. The ice maker is great...I make enough ice to open an ice store. The shelving units are easy to work with and make my storing to fit my needs.

                                      Have bought this product 2 months ago and extremely happy with the results so far. There is a lot of space to keep all kinds of food and there is no way I can run out of space. Even the freezer is large and spacious with lots of compartments. Ice dispenser is huge and can handle big parties easily. The overall looks both inside and outside is also very impressive. Easy to clean and maintain.

                                      Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Steel 48" Built-In Side By Side Refrigerator:

                                      This fridge is the updated model for our previous Kitchenaid fridge that lasted 15 years (died due to a power outage/ multiple power surges ). It looks the same on the outside, but the inside was redesigned and is better! There is more storage on the doors, and wider space on the shelves. They are now wider vs. deeper, which we like better because it's easier to find stuff! I also like the ice drawer better; more easily accessible. All around happy with it so far...have had it a few months.
