We had our cabinet maker create 1/4"-plywood pieces in the same finish as the door panels, and then attached adhesive magnetic strips to the back of the pieces. They hold to the sides of the doors and freezer drawer and create the custom finished look that everyone is hoping to achieve. You just have to measure below the hinges and inside the gasket seal for a proper fit. (Approx: doors 43 x 2-1/4", drawers 23 x 2-1/4")

I'm so disappointed with this refrigerator. i had custom panels made for the fridge in white to match my cabinets. i had my space made deep enough to install my fridge but we cant because the panels are impinging the opening of the door so therefore we've had to pull the fridge out 6 inches so you can open the door. and the body of this fridge is black of all things. its false advertising making people that it looks like a built in. As an interior designer im telling you this fridge with panel ready is flawed. Ive had installers come over and say they've never seen anything like this. You should not make people believe that it is going to look like a built because it does not and is not. I would and never will recommend kitchen aid again. I also ordered the induction oven that was suppossed to be available and found out 2 weeks before my install that its on backordered til december or january. I dont know what im going to do but it won't be staying in my kitchen.

I have been enjoying my kitchen aid refrigerator for two months. You open the double doors and you can see everything. The shallow produce bin has worked out really well. I can see how many apples, oranges, onions, etc. No over purchasing at the grocery store.

Just right styling and features

By 

from Thousand Oaks, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

This model fit perfectly into my kitchen renovation -- the door handle style mirrors that of the Thermador oven and dishwasher we chose (sorry KitchenAid, but we preferred the Thermador oven), and the counter-depth size gave us enough space to allow for an island. We love the interior cold water dispenser and the way the ice maker is positioned in the freezer. Also love the configuration of the freezer bins (great feature to have one wide, shallow pullout wire bin; frozen pizzas fit perfectly). We've only had the refrigerator a month, but are very happy with it so far. The only downside is the counter depth means a little less space, but it was a good tradeoff for us.

Totally agree with other posters and bad design.

By

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

I don't need to beat a dead horse. If Kitchenaid cared they would post a picture of the black sides that stick out once you panel this refrigerator and also note the side clearance needed. I promise that one little additional picture would make customers feel like there was no deceptive marketing here.

Nice refrigerator

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

Excellent refrigerator. The freezer unit is a bit shifty as it is opened and the sliding tray comes off the track somewhat but aside from that all is good.

picked the standard depth to start with, but did not fit due to space restraints. Exchanged it for counter depth and I am so happy with it. Not that much smaller than the standard depth.

Starts to break down after three years

By 

from chapel hill

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu Ft Standard Depth French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator:

My husband I bought this refrigerator/freezer in Oct 2013. All went fine until October 2016, when the water filter leaked, the freezer froze shut because of a separate issue, and now the ice maker is not producing ice because the control board is broken. Repair totals so far: about $600.00 plus the cost of food we had to throw away after the freezer defrosted, plus the 11 bags of ice.
