We've only had it installed for a couple of months. We had a Sub Zero before and it seems this holds more than it did and the contents are far easier to access. The interior lighting is more than sufficient. The drawers are spacious and well organized. If I had any complaint or negative comment, the door shelves seem just slightly shallower than our Sub Zero making milk cartons, large wine bottles and other larger objects harder to get in or out. We live with it, but, only 1/4" more would have been better. The outside stainless steel finish is spectacular. Installation was smooth once it was in the house. Since it so heavy, it was an exercise to get it from the driveway to the kitchen. Ice maker is a little too loud when first filling up; can be heard throughout the house at night.

Don't buy the ice dispenser

The refrigerator did what I wanted - it was big. The money spent for the ice dispenser was completely wasted. It jams every couple of days and you have to empty the ice bin and clear the chute - a pain the butt job. It's not worth the effort to keep it running. My advice - the refrigerator is OK but the ice dispenser simply doesn't work well enough to justify any cost, much less what they charge.

Tons of space
from Sherwood Park, AB, Canada
We are so happy with this refrigerator. We weren't sure if we would lose space with the flush mount design, but there is so much room, and was easy to organize everything.

Going on 2yrs and still love this Fridge!
By Happy Owner
from New England
We installed in Sept 2012 and this unit really compliments our kitchen. Very solid, never a problem with ice-maker or anything. My wife talked me into this and having a small family we didn't really need the space but it's great for parties with all the space. Very happy with our purchase.
So efficient and good looking!

Poor Choice for alleged High End Fridge
By Unhappy Customer
from Chicago, IL
We made a bad choice to try a KitchenAid fridge versus Subzero. The quality, workmanship and cost to operate are substandard. As many other reviewers noted, the ice maker is defective and has to be emptied and cleared out weekly. The freezer is full of condensation constantly and the condensor motor runs 24 hours a day. Do Not buy this fridge at any price. Oh, and to supposedly fix the ice maker, they have to make an entire new freezer door and that takes 8 weeks. Will update this review once the "new" door is installed. Whirlpool will not exchange or give credit unless unit is deemed unservicable. Nice customer service and commitment to quality.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought my first 48" Kitchen Aid Architect series 19 years ago. She was a great purchase. Replaced her with the new stainless version, only because the freon unit could not be replaced, and love the new one too.
Best overall fridge
We bought this without the ice maker on the door because I like a clean front. It's the best fridge I've ever had. Best value compared to sub zero, etc. Counter depth makes it easy to find food and not crowd it. Beautiful. We just sold our house and plan to build a new house using all of the same Kitchen aid appliances as before. DW, fridge, microwave and the new 48" dual fuel stove - my gift to myself!
