Great Fridge, looks very nice. Noisy at times due to the water\ice dispensers. Limited Door space. Wish water filter placement wouldnt block potential top shelf space. Freezer space is lost due to compressor and other equipment in the back bottom of fridge, plus having an ice maker you lose space too. I wish it was a bit bigger like the LG 25cuft 34" wide one (but its too expensive). Overall, a great fridge for the limited wide option.

I am so unhappy with my purchase. At $2000+, I had much higher expectations. This fridge is poorly designed and it's made with cheap materials that break. For example, there is actual styrofoam in the back of the fridge that is not covered. It is exposed! If you ever have a spill, guess what? Have fun scrubbing styrofoam. Worst purchase I've ever made. Do not buy this fridge.

It's very functional only trick is left door must close first, so when your hands are full you have to set things down to close properly

Well-organized and good looking

About Me Avid Cook
The refrigerated area is really spacious in this French Door fridge. We worried about it seeming small after a 25 cubic foot side-by-side but it seems to have MORE room because it is organized better. We don't miss the ice and water dispenser in the door at all. The internal water dispenser is perfect and easy to use for us. I was able to arrange the shelves and bins in the doors so we have plenty of room for tall things. The full width drawer holds more than you would think, even bottles of wine.The only negative I can come up with is that the ice cubes fuse together when we don't use them for a long time in cold weather.
As quiet as promised

Comments about KitchenAid White Architect II French Door Refrigerator:
Delivery was on time and fast. Care to my hardwood floors was provided. I highly recommend this product and ABT.
After over 23 years, upgrade is here!
from Suburban Chicago
First, we've only had this unit for about a week (which is why the four and not five star rating) but did EXTENSIVE research and spent a lot of time at Abt comparing fridges. This way, we had the unit picked out in advance of needing it. Compared to our old freezer-on-top that was in our house when we moved in (and has since been replaced), this really is an upgrade! Our space constraints kind of dictated this particular configuration, then it just came to the brand and bells-and-whistles. This Kitchenaid really seems to fit the bill, the right balance of practicality, quality (as best we can tell compared to the others we looked at) and performance. Love the internal water dispenser and internal icemaker going from the old plastic icecube trays. Since most of our time is spent in the fridge vs. the freezer, having the fridge on top is welcome + the split doors are pretty cool--don't take up as much clearance to open the door(s). So far, there's nothing I like better about the old fridge and was used to this one in just a day or two. So, take this review with a grain of salt, but hopefully this fridge continues to work as well as it looks in stainless (doors only--sides are gray).
Service and delivery comments:
The delivery/install guys called in advance, arrived inside the time window they said, and handled the whole thing efficiently and in a friendly manner. They had to drill into the floor to tap our water line for the icemaker, and they made sure everything was leakproof and working before they left. They instructed us about how to work everything and hauled away the old unit. A couple of days later, we got a call from the recycling center that was handling the fridge rebate. We didn't have to do a thing. Oh, and by the way, the delivery guys pointed out that we didn't need the extra icemaker we thought was needed because this particular freezer already had one. No complaints, this is part of why we go to Abt for our appliances!

Everything I was looking for
from Lake Bluff, IL
Comments about KitchenAid Black Architect II French Door Refrigerator:
I much prefer the French door styling of this refrigerator to the big swinging door I had before. I like the cheese/meat drawer at the bottom of the fridge which is perfect for keeping those items in a relatively shallow space without have to pile them on top of each other. I also appreciate the LED readout of the temperature in both freezer and fridge, and the fact that I will get a warning beep if I leave the door ajar. The seal between the two doors is sturdier than some I saw on other models.

USA is the best and I say USA is the only product I will buy
Good french door unit.
from D.P., Il
Lots of room for a smaller refer. We have a narrow width opening for our refer and this fits very well. Kitchenaid is the way to go.
from Chicago, IL
Very satisfied with the capacity of the refrigerator.
The delivery was prompt and the product arrived in good condition. The delivery men could not have been more helpful and polite. Well done gentlemen.
