I love my counter depth French refrigerator which expends the space in my narrow galley kitchen. The French doors make everything I need on a daily bases conveniently reachable. The moveable shelves in the door and inside the refrigerator are easily cleaned and hold items of various sizes. I particularly like having the freezer at the lower level where items can be easily moved without having to reach to the back inside of the freezer.
The ice maker is quickly accessiblel. The black glossy exterior is stylish, and the refrigerator is quiet, and an energy saver as well.

As far as the actual refrigerator space and function go, I don't have a problem with this model. I'm not picky about my fridges, so it works just fine and looks great. BUT, while I was unpacking everything inside and setting up the door shelving I noticed that the two shelf buckets for the left door by the ice dispenser are identical. Only problem is, the top shelf is supposed to be shaped differently to fit that space. Even the instruction manual showed a different shaped bucket for the top slots. So I've got a missing shelf and a useless little bucket. Second, I debated over doing ice and water in the door and I finally decided I wanted the convenience of not having to open the door to get ice or water. So the ice and water dispensers seem to work great. My BIGGEST pet peeve of this fridge is that the little catch tray at the bottom is not self draining, and the excess ice/water literally needs to be soaked up with a few paper towels at least three times a day. So here I am with a nice new shiny stainless steel refrigerator, jamming paper towels into the shallow tray at the dispenser to prevent it from over flowing down the front of the fridge onto my hardwood floors!? Three or four times a day!? Come on!!! So I took a stroll through Home Depot and noticed that most of the models they have on display are similar, and I would imagine their owners are dealing with the same problem. My buddy does have a newer fridge that does self drain the ice tray and I would absolutely search high and low for a brand/model of fridge that does this. This should be more common because it's incredibly annoying.

Comments about KitchenAid 19.7 CuFt Counter Depth Stainless Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I can't really say if I would or would not recommend this yet because I need to call customer service. I love the fridge and all it's features but the freezer gets ice build up right inside the drawer on the rubber trim and I'm not sure where it is coming from. If customer service can tell me how to fix the ice build up I would definitely recommend.

Great fridge, Great brand, Great price

Comments about KitchenAid 19.7 CuFt Counter Depth Stainless Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I bought this a few weeks ago, so I can't exactly speak to the reliability, however being a Kitchenaid product, I'm not too worried in that department.

The fridge works great and I couldn't be happier with the counter depth. I wish the freezer was bigger but that's what the garage fridge is for.

They don't make 'em like they used to

By 

from Frisco, TX

Comments about KitchenAid 19.7 CuFt Counter Depth Stainless Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We did some research and purchased this model 3 years ago. It has served its purpose, but here are my complaints about it:

-The handy dandy door alarm will beep if the doors are left open for more than 30-45 seconds (?). That's great unless you're cleaning the thing out, rearranging, or loading it up. You're forced to stop, push in all the drawers, close the doors to reset the timer, then you can proceed. You have to repeat this process every 30-45 seconds until you're done. Annoying.

-The icemaker is tiny. I have a family of four. We can't all have ice at the same time. Seriously. You can forget it if we have friends or family over. I have to start pre-planning a few days in advance by harvesting ice and storing in the freezer or just by buying a bag.

-The icemaker is also finicky. You either wait forever for ice to fall, or you're bombarded with a whole bucket of ice falling through the chute and ultimately on the floor.

-The size of this fridge is pretty small compared to others on the market. I am constantly reorganizing or moving things to my outside fridge.

-Anything placed on the top shelf (next to the icemaker) WILL FREEZE. I learned my lesson. While putting water bottles in that area is great, a carton of eggs is not.

-The freezer is small. Again, we utilize an outside fridge/freezer because this unit is so small.

-Within the last month, we noticed water on the floor in front of the fridge. I assumed maybe it was a drip pan in need of emptying? We found out last night that it has something to do with the freezer. The gasket is not sealing properly even though I've cleared all possible obstructions. Our food has partially thawed and now we're left with the chore of emptying out the entire freezer because it's now unsafe.

We are putting a service call in after only 3 years of use. We're pretty much fed up with the size of it that we're going to replace it all together. If you have a family of four or more, don't get this model.
