Only negative is the delay in the lights coming on when opening door. Door arlound 50%+ open before lights come on.

from August 26- September 11. Now what?!
Can not even count the amount of money I have had to throw away
It does look nice if you do not need to keep food cold.

Comments about KitchenAid Overlay 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

For the exorbitant price of this refrigerator, the space is extremely limited and the features are non-existent. There isn't even a humidity control on the crisper drawer.

        Comments about KitchenAid Overlay 36" Architect Series II Built-In Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

        When we remodeled our kitchen about 3 1/2 years ago, our new appliances included the Kitchenaid built-in refrigerator. We liked it so much that when we moved to a new townhouse in January, 2014, we did not want the refrigerator that came with our unit, and instead we bought another Kitchenaid built-in refrigerator. In addition to the mechanics of the refrigerator itself, we also liked the fact that that we could purchase panels to match our new kitchen cabinets. The refrigerator looks great with the matching panels.
