I love the look of this fridge and the doors are nice and light and easy to open. It also warns you if a door is left open by the kids! I love the freezer drawer and its roomier than it looks! The shelves are easy to adjust to meet the needs of any type of family and their groceries!

This is a very nice looking refrigerator and I like the interior design and drawers. The freezer is well designed too. I feel for the price we paid, the drawers could be better quality. They seem very flimsy and don't have very good support. I worry they will break. I like the lined shelves in the door. What I don't understand is that if our place gets above 74 degrees, the door seal sweats. I don't know if that is indicative of a poorly sealing unit or what. The ice maker is good but the dispenser is too forceful and ice goes all over the place when trying to fill up a glass. I also wish it had a crushed ice option. [...] Overall we are happy but it's the little things that seem to be overlooked.

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White French Door Counter Depth Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

I really like this fridge but it is counter depth so there really isn't the most space inside for items. But, I love that the fridge doesn't stick out past the counter so it's a small price to pay.
But, the freezer is wonderful and plenty of room. The doors shut pretty quick so I am wondering if I need to level the fridge.
I am still learning how to get the ice so it doesn't go flying all over the place.

Overall, I am very happy with this appliance.

Service and delivery comments:

I can't say enough about the Abt Sales person and the deliverymen. Wonderful and 10s across the board!!!

Buyer Beware

    Comments about KitchenAid 19.9 CuFt Stainless Refrigerator:

    We bought this refrigerator less than 5 years ago and have had a litany of problems from the beginning. The latest was the gaskets on both doors were torn. Repair costs were $448.41, total repairs in under 5 years have been $784.79.

    We have also had several issues with temperature control, where everything in the refrigerator froze. Not only did we have to get a new control board for $250, but we had to replace everything in the refrigerator!

    This is not what we expected when we purchased a "high-end" refrigerator. Perhaps KitchenAid ought to review their "quality control" procedures and demand higher standards for their suppliers.

        Comments about KitchenAid 19.9 CuFt Stainless Refrigerator:

        I don't like the way the water dispenser protrudes out of the refridgerator door. The ice dispenser is very difficult to gain access into the ice bin. The water dispenser is noisy. There is a display on the door, but not impressed with the use of it.
        Overall, I am very disappointed in the product and am sorry I purchased it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        ABT always provides excellent service/delivery. ABT is always recommended as a place to purchase appliances.

        Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White French Door Counter Depth Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

        The icemaker takes up a fair bit of the refrigerator box, so it seems a bit smaller than first glance. But, it just takes a bit of reorganization, and I like the double doors.

        I'm not sure why I don't give this five stars - but there are several small misses - there is a tiny but very bright LED that cannot be turned off on the door face, indicating ice or water feed in the door. It is surprisingly bright at night. And, with all the other electronics in the door, why not add an option for a clock?

        Service and delivery comments:

        Prompt, called beforehand as they were approaching. Courteous. Abt staff seem consistent in this way.

        • Counter Depth

        Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II White French Door Counter Depth Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

        We needed a counter depth refrigerator and liked this one because it had the bottom freezer drawer. And it's a Kitchen Aid - a brand we trust. Our choices were limited because we needed white (lots of choices in stainless ... not everyone has stainless appliances but that's what manufacuturers are putting out there). The first few weeks was a lesson in 'How to Organize a Poorly Desinged Refrigerator'. Thank God we have a back up fridge in the garage. This thing can't hold enough food to feed a team of toddlers let alone a busy family of four with teenage boys! Now, after 18 months of use, the bottom tray (for meats and cheeses) is broken. The parts to this tray are plastic and poorly designed. I hate this refrigerator and regret the purchase.

        The fridge designed to fail.

        • Large Kitchens

        Comments about KitchenAid 19.9 CuFt Stainless Refrigerator:

        The worst part of the fridge which makes it destined for failure is the location of the condenser. Underneath the fridge, and below the condenser is an unnecessary piece of cardboard which holds an uncanny amount of dust.
        In order to perform preventative maintenance on this fridge me and another two other individuals had to lift it up and support the unit on 2x4s first two inches up, then four inches off the ground. The cardboard was unnecessary and had to be ripped off in order to clean it. when the cardboard was removed there was dust caked up, preventing all airflow.
        Such design of the condensing coil is really setting this unit up for extra strain on the compressor, waste of energy, and ultimately a costly compressor failure. They figure if you'll fork out 3 grand for a fridge, you'll probably be able to afford another one in a couple years when this one breaks.

        The refrigeration aspects works well. The amount of storage is compromised by the compartments, and my wife complains about the lack of space constantly.

        the ice machine is a little slow. When entertaining any more than 3 guests you will run out of ice, so I suggest freezing some for such occasions.

          Comments about KitchenAid 19.9 CuFt Stainless Refrigerator:

          The interior layout is poor compared with similar counter-depth models which have the ice maker on inside of left door. The exterior water/ice dispenser is very poor. No one can use our ice dispenser without having three or four cubes fly around the kitchen. It has become somewhat of a family contest.
