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.

They don't make 'em like they used to

Comments about KitchenAid Counter Depth Bottom Mount White 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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love this refrigerator! I had the same one in our previous home, but it was included in the sale. I was so happy to find the same model for our new home.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We needed a fridge for a smaller space that utilized HHe space to the max; this model is perfect!
from lemont, il.
i should have looked at the store and not the outlet. An emergency situation.. need the space that the icemaker takes up. no place to store wine bottles. it seems it is a bit smaller than the one I had but it's working and all parts are in place,so it's a keeper

Very nice refrigerator and holds plenty of food. Nice and cold inside box.
Spacious and beautiful.
from Surrey, BC
I bought a few weeks ago and am thrilled with it.
Not Too Bad
Overall OK. Keeps the food cold (of course) so I guess it does the job. The shelves are not especially sturdy and have sharp plastic on the leading edges. The door bins are on the smaller side and are not very versatile based on where they can be placed. The ice maker works very well, but the freezer is on the smaller side. The inside cold water spout is convenient. I do like to oversized deli bin.
Good Looking, Well Designed and Spacious
By Louise Seattle
Love the dual-open doors and lower freezer drawer. The drawers and cubbies on the interior are useful too, and flexible should your needs change. The exterior is good looking and suitable for any kitchen or cabinet style. The water dispenser I'd located inside the left door, leaving the front with nice clean lines. And it's made in America!

Lots of room, for size LED lighting not as bright, two hands needed for water inside and water dispenser makes a lot of noise when stopping OTHERWISE love style and set up
Froze everything ruined a lot of food.

This refrigerator look good but rigt from the start we had problems! Fist the handle on the freezer door started chipping, like a bad powder coat job. We noticed everything on the top shelf was freezing and we just kept turning the fridge compartment up to over 45 degrees to keep things from freezing. Nonetheless we still experienced freezing issues. Then my fiance dropped a plastic bottle of ketchup on the crisper drawer and the clear part cracked about 6" long. We hadn't had it for a week at that point. My fiance had contacted our distributor and asked them to fix the problem, but call backs were far and few between. Finally after having it for close to 9 months they came out to repair the unit. They told us the drawer crack and handle chipping would have been covered had we contacted them in the first month. We did! They didn't call back or do anything about the issue. Now after they have come out and replaced the control board and thermal sensor and we have warm food and the display shows 8 degrees for the fridge compartment. Now I may have to throw out the food that is spoiling in my fridge! At least with frozen food we could still use the fridge most of the way! I am now ready to push this thing off of a cliff!
