We recently purchased this refrigerator for our busy family of 5 and could not be happier.

Great things: The LED lights are wonderful; the entire fridge is so well lit you can't lose things in the back. The interior styling is quite nice and sleek looking. I like the glass shelves in the freezer instead of wire shelving. The ice maker/storage in the door is a great feature and the pull out ice storage is very convenient. The ice cubes are smaller than the standard crescents which I like because they fit better into narrower glasses. The factory setting for temperature is perfect and the unit cooled down very quickly upon installation. The "measured fill" water dispenser option is a handy feature, which I thought was gimmicky in the store, but I find I use it multiple times every day. The water dispensed is nicely chilled, too.

Not so Great things: There is not gallon size storage in the door. We don't store milk in the door, but could be an issue for those who do. The shelf placement is limited in both the fridge and the freezer. There's one extra shelf option in the fridge and two in the freezer, although you can have the deli drawer up in the middle of the unit or flush with the crisper, so that's a nice choice. The door open alarm is so subtle, just a pleasant beep that doesn't constantly repeat: nice when you are loading groceries in and leave the door open, but you can barely hear it in the kitchen; I doubt you could hear it anywhere in the house if one of the kids left the door open accidentally. I have noticed the general working noises of the unit more than my old fridge, but it could just be because they are "different" sounding. Nothing too crazy loud.

I decided to replace my 9 yr. old Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator in February vs. replacing a bad compressor. Now I wish I would have taken my chances w/ the $800 repair instead of buying the Kitchen-Aid side-by-side Architect Series II refrigerator. I am astonished at how refrigerator design & performance has gone backwards over the past 9 yrs. My Whirlpool had excellent features, ran quietly & served me well until the compressor died. The new Kitchen-Aid makes more sounds & loud noises than a high school band. It really is disturbing. The icemaker is obnoxious both in how loudly it operates & its poor performance in actually making ice - once emptied it takes 48 hrs. to refill itself. The compartments & door bins are a step backwards from the Whirlpool Gold as well. For instance, you cannot store a milk jug size container except in the upper door bins which makes no sense if you have children. Also, the interior shelves on my Whirlpool could be adjusted in 1 inch increments wheras the Kitchen-Aid only has a few possiblitiies for shelf arrangement. The icemaker dispenser makes a mess everywhere especially when using the crushed ice feature. Overall, I would rate the Kitchen-Aid as a piece of junk not worth the money, but I'm not sure what's on the market that's any better.

Broke in 2 years

By 

from Marlborough, MA

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

We had the fridge a bit over 2 years now, it stopped working and was not cooling anymore. First we called the extended warranty guys to come out (Warrentech) and waited 1 week, they figured it's the sealed system which is covered under Manufacturer warranty. Then we called Whirlpool service, after 1 week they came and added a dye to see if there is a leak, they could not find anything and left and then came back for a second time after one more week. Replaced compressor and a few valves. Fridge worked for a week and then stopped working. We wasted alot of time, food lost due to improper cooling and so far stuck in a limbo with KA to decide how to proceed. I agree sometimes things break or defective, but what I don't like is the protocol and red tape we have to go through to get a replacement fridge.

Poor quality Refrigerator barely made it out of warranty

By 

from auburn CA

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

I bought this refrigerator 1.5 yrs ago.(safely out of warranty for KitchenAid) It completely failed and I have to replace. This is the first KitchenAid-Whirlpool refrigerator I have ever purchased. All other refrigerators I have owned lasted at least 10-11 years. Most longer. After reading other reviews, there seems to be a consistent quality issue with this product.
Lost cooling in the freezer. Ice in Ice maker melted and leaked all over hardwood floor.

Disappointed with Quality

By 

from Wisconsin

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

So far we've had two drawers in the fridge and one in the freezer all fail in the same way. The small plastic tabs that attached to the front panels all cracked. For a premier brand I would expect a better design for something that is put under stress every day. I am also disappointed in flow of the water dispenser. It is painfully slow and the ice make is way ridiculously slow and loud.

We love the design of our new Kitchen Aid side by side. The clear, clean shelving makes it easy to see everything stocked and makes it easier to be more organized. Quiet, clean, great looking design and our favorite refridgerator by far!

Poor quality

By 

from Ann Arbor, Michigan

Comments about Kitchenaid Architect Series II Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Disappointed with many features of this refrigerator. Cheap, plastic DRAWERS- front facing breaks off when pulled out. This happened in the freezer and the refrigerator, I've had to glue them back together because the plastic tabs are completely broken off. WATER DISPENSER- water is room temperature, not cold. Rust is forming in tray beneath dispenser. ICE MAKER - is very loud. SHELVES- are not adjustable. Kitchen Aid has provided service when requested; however, I would not recommend this product.
