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.

Fits well in our new kitchen

By 

from Trenton,NJ

Verified Buyer

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

Very quiet and neat looking. This unit replaced our Maytag side by side that sounded more like a meat grinder when the compressor ran.
This unit is so quiet that you hardly notice it's running.
The counter depth was a selling feature for us.

Great Refrigerator

By 

from South Carolina

Verified Buyer

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

We bought this as a display closeout and because it was a KitchenAid. The refrigerator is beautiful and very efficient. It looks great in the kitchen and takes much less floor space, which is a big plus in a small kitchen. The freezer compartment is roomy and well designed. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

2 LEMONS FROM kitchen aid

By 

from Courtice

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

Bought all kitchen aid appliances for our new house few years ago. I have already had repair men out for the dishwasher and this fridge twice each! I gave up on the dishwasher and replaced it with a Samsung and am very happy. However this fridge is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent. Leaks every few days and I'm tired of chipping the ice outta the freezer part cause the drain gets clogged or freezes.
So someone told me to come here as kitchen aid has a fix? how much is this going to cost me now? almost ready to give up and buy new samsung fridge too.

Nightmare Refrigerator

By 

from Irvine, CA

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

Our KitchenAid french door refrigerator lasted less than three years. The evaporator malfunctioned due to a poorly designed refrigerant line. KitchenAid's contracted service technician deemed it unrepairable.

We purchased KitchenAid's $400 extended warranty which is administered by Assurant, a contracted 3rd party warranty provider. When this issue was identified after the warranty was purchased, neither KitchenAid, nor Assurant would stand behind the product or warranty plan.

A refrigerator should be built to last 10+ years and the manufacturer should stand behind its product and warranty. More importantly, KitchenAid should not be selling warranty plans that do not actually cover their products when they are defective.

If you are considering purchasing a KitchenAid appliance, you should know that our experience has been a total nightmare and we would strongly recommend considering other manufacturers.

Worth the Price

By 

from Rochester, NY

Verified Buyer

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

I waited a few months after I received the "frige" to write this review to insure that all the "bugs" were gone.

It's a great machine except for two drawbacks.

First, I wish that the "deli" tray, at the bottom of the refrig section, was split. As it is, I need to open both french doors in order to pull the deli tray out.

Second, ice builds up on the top of the freezer drawer just below where the two frig doors meet. This causes the freezer drawer to be difficult to open and the freezer light swith to freeze in the closed position; meaning no light in the freezer.

I especially like the "counter depth" feature. In addition to making the kitchen a little bigger, we can see what's in the far reaches of the interior.

Interior function not as good as outside style

By 

from St Augustine, FL

Verified Buyer

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

I like the style of the refrigerator. My wife agrees on the outside presence, but does not like the interior design. She notes that she must open both doors to have unobstructed access to the drawers. Your newer design that has the drawer below the French doors may give her a better impression.

20 Cu. Ft. Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator

By 

from Canton, OH

Verified Buyer

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

I love my new refrigerator, and only two comments. I wish the shelves had some kind of edge along the back to stop stuff from falling down the back.
The other comment is on the ice maker, the ice often falls out of the ice tray and then either lays under the basket or flies out the bottom onto the floor.
