When my wife and I were hunting for a fridge, we wanted one without an external water dispenser because we rarely would use it (we have a filtered pitcher we like to use) and it would otherwise collect dust and scale. When we came across this one, it had everything we wanted and for the right price. The shelving is more than adequate for a family of four (we have a one and two year old) and can easily hold 2 gallons of milk, all our condiments and 2 juice or soda bottles (the 2 liter ones). The pull out freezer holds more than we expected it would....and we have yet to cram it to the point where we can't hold more (going on 6 months of use). The temperature stays very stable even after repeated opening and loading groceries. The veggie crispers work very well and the large pull out tray is very convenient either for holding platters or thawing frozen meats for 1-2 days use. Cleaning has been almost unnecessary except when something spills and even then it is very easy to wipe up...nothing has dripped down or off of it's shelf...yet (not that I'd expect it to). The electricity consumption rating is accurate if not a little overkill...we left it at factory setting (38 fridge, 30 freezer) and this has been very adequate. Ice cubes form within an hour or two. We have not used the water hook up feature or the ice dispenser but as a fridge/freezer...this was everything I wanted and more. Plus, the stainless steel looks awesome.

I like the French Door concept, but I wish I checked other brands. The refrigerator does not offer the room that I had with my top freezer. Not sure if we didn't notice the door was not tightly closed or if there was an issue when we packed a lot of food in the freezer but the items on the top shelf began to thaw. We lost our ice cream, and some frozen dinners.

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt French Door Refrigerator:
The interior lay-out and design are brilliant for a unit of this size. It is sleek and compact in the space I needed it to set. Very user friendly. Like the interior water, but is slightly awkward to access. Still worth it to not have exterior water plus icemaker mess. I like the bottom freezer much better than I thought I would. The exterior finish in metal stainless look is still questionable to me. I used a water based stainless cleaner and a couple of days later it looked like it had the beginning of rust spots. Yikes. Hope it doesn't end up being a maintenance or defect issue. Would definitely rec this unit to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love my new Kitchenaid!
from Lexington, GA, United States
After 25 years of side by sides and never being quite happy, I bought the Kitchenaid 22 cu. ft. French door refrigerator and have never been more pleased with an appliance purchase. The size is perfect for my husband and me and looks so beautiful in my kitchen. I will never go back to a side by side!
The interior design proivdes plenty of storage space, easy to get to .

Our refrigerator wore itself out after 30 years of service. My wife chose the 'Kitchenaid' French Door with the bottom freezer. She looked at several other brands, but kept returning to the 'Kitchenaid'. I know she made a great choice, were very happy with our 'Kitchenaid' refrigerator.

I bought this a few weeks ago and I am very happy with it.
Happy with the refrigerator
By Jerry S
from Massachusetts, United States
We purchased the refrigerator two weeks ago because of its small footprint (we have a pre-existing space with no room to inexpensively expand). The unit is quiet, spacious with easy access to all areas of the refrigerator. From my two weeks experience, I would highly recommend the unit.

Mine's new, just a few weeks old now. So far I love everything about it but the icemaker. I find that the placement of the icemaker on this model to be very inconveniently located. I have to open the bottom freezer section then pull out the drawer and reach backward to retrieve ice. I bought this name brand because of the warranty and sure hope that's not going to be needed.

I bought this and am so happy with it. I don't have to bend or stoop. Everything is at hand level, waist high. Absolutely wonderful.

Considering what I had this thing is a Cadillac. Like the sliding shelves and door storage. Freezer is a little challenging. A boxed pizza won't fit in it much less two or three but.....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Ease of use
I bought this refrigerator about a month ago. It is very convenient and easy to use.
