                  I really like the extra space the design provides...over a side by side. Nice and big for our second home. The only problem i have encountered is some of the items on the top shelf freeze!!?? Since it's so brand new i will wait a bit to see if it continues.

                    Comments about KitchenAid Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

                    The unit is very quiet and the freezer works GREAT! The sliding shelves in the freezer and small touches like the built in ice scoop are very convenient.

                    The stainless steel finish is more difficult to clean than other similar appliances.

                    Some minor adjustments in the way the shelves fit would allow for easier placement of tall items. We needed to remove a shelf.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    We had unique requirements for how a refrigerator would fit in our kitchen. Scot from Abt did a great job helping us find a unit that would work in our space.

                    Delivery was very prompt and professional and they took great care to protect our floors and and doorways removing the old unit and bringing in the new one. The delivery team also measured carefully to make sure the new unit would fit before attempting to bring it in.

                      Great Fridge. I Like the fact that it is taller than the standard fridge, but fits perfectly in the standard cabinet cutout. It almost looks build in. It has clean lines and matches all my other Kitchen Aid appliances. The mauals are kind of sparse, but that is common with kitchenaid. It has lots of well thought out space for its size.

                        Comments about KitchenAid Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

                        I have had this refrigerator for three weeks. A small amount of frost started to build-up in the refrigerator section a few days ago. Two days ago water started to condense on the strip where the doors meet to close, even though the humidity control was on. There are two buttons on the control panel that do not work. I am sending the refrigerator back, but getting the same model hoping that only this one was defective. I really like this refrigerator despite the problems that have occurred. I would have given it five stars if my refrigerator was not defective. The refrigerator section has plenty of space and is easy to organize. The freezer section is easy to organize because of the three sections, but it is a little small. I also love the interior water dispenser and ice maker.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Delivery went great. There were no issues with getting this relatively large fridge into a small kitchen.
                        Since our refrigerator was defective, we had to deal with the customer service department at Abt for the first time in over fifteen years of buying products from Abt. We were very pleased with their response and solution to our problem. They made the process of returning the fridge easy and convenient for us. They made it clear that their main concern was for us to be satisfied. We are very satisfied with this company and will continue to shop there.

                          I have a small kitchen and was looking for a counter debth fridge. My old fridge was also noisey. This fridge is great. I feel like I have so much more space in the kitchen now that it is counter debth plus I have more storage space inside the fridge than my old standard fridge. Love this item. Very happy with my purchase.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Delivery was on time and product was in new condition. There were a few finger prints I could not get off after installation. I called Abt and they immediately sent out stainless steel cleaner which took care of the finger prints right away. Great service

                            Comments about KitchenAid Stainless French Door Refrigerator:

                            Our first refrigerator was the original Kitchen Aid french door with in-freezer ice maker. We still own this refrigerator 20 years later and use this now as a second refrigerator.
                            Brought this refrigerator because of the brands reputation and reliability. It is by far the best refrigerator on the market in its price range. It has all the features that we are looking for in a Refrigerator including the water dispenser inside the refrigerator. It does have some flaws...
                            The refrigerator is quieter than the previous refrigerator but there are some loud knocks that comes from within. Not sure if this is the ice maker making this knocking noise?
                            The stainless steel shell is high maintenance. It is low grade and thin gauge. You need to use a high quality stainless steel cleaner and polish. Finger prints show up and needs to be cleaned at least once a week. The stainless steel shell can dent easily so be careful. I am surprised that Kitchen Aid went cheap on this important feature!
                            The ice maker is much better than the previous model, BUT there is only one cube size, Large, and it is not select able. The previous refrigerator you can select from large or small cubes.
                            Overall very happy with the refrigerator. Counter depth and tall is perfect for our kitchen.
