    Ingenious poor man's 'built-in' refrigerator

    We're still amazed that manufacturers are still making huge, clunky 36"-deep refrigerators, which stick out a foot or more beyond standard 24" deep cabinetry. And we're too poor to spend thousands of dollars on a 'counter-depth' built in (most of which have lousy frequency-of-repair records!!!). So when we found THIS Kitchenaid refer, which is 29" deep -- we were thrilled (in theory). Now that we've installed it (a simple slide-in, to the space in our existing cabinets), here's all the other things we ALSO love about it: 1. Gorgeous styling 2. Rock-solid computer-control of the entire mechanism, including digital read-outs of freezer and refrigerator temperatures, plus much more (should be a high-reliability feature). 3. Door left open alarm. Helpful and not annoying. 4. Comparatively "shallow" interior -- eliminates your forgotten food turning into a 'scientific experiment' in the back of the refrigerator. 5. Terrific icemaker and cold water (inside, NOT through the door). Every single 'through-the-door-icemaker I've ever had has broken. So this is a GOOD thing! 6. This refrigerator is the QUIETEST I've ever owned. YAY! 7. Build quality (quality of design and construction) are superb. Everything fits, lines up and is very handsome. A couple of (minor) gripes: A. Of the three interior refrigerator DRAWERS, only one can be opened (pulled out) with just ONE of the two French Doors opened. The wide drawer (naturally) and the right hand narrow drawer each STILL require that you open both "French Doors." Thus the double doors are GREAT for not blocking kitchen space when open, but are NOT the time saver they could have been. (A VERY minor quibble). B. The freezer space is on the smallish side -- that's the major trade-off here for the SHALLOW ("counter-depth") design. Obviously the compressor sits behind the freezer. We had planned on getting a small chest freezer in our pantry anyhow. (The freezer in this Kitchenaid IS adequate, but not super-large). Another VERY minor comment. C. The stainless steel finish is a magnet for fingerprints. Some other refrigerators we saw have a 'magic' (supposedly), fingerprint repelling finish. We're going to put carnuba car wax on the front, to see if that helps. (Also MINOR). But we give this a FIVE STAR review (out of five). Thanks, Kitchenaid!

    We had the older single door version of this (same size) but The old one had much more useable space inside. The control panel & water filter on this model sit upfront and protrude down from the ceiling, taking up way too much space away from the top shelf. we find it hard to store beer bottles upright in this fridge. then if you lower the top shelves you just compress the vertical space in the shelves below, making them useless for anything more than a couple inches tall. just a dumb design. KA's other similar (but more expensive) models move the controls/filter up & out of the way - making them much better options.

    also this one just seems shorter inside, despite it being taller overall than our previous fridge. I think this is a consequence of them trying to hide the top door hinges.

    wish we could exchange this for a different model.

    Good Looking Refrigerator

    By 

    from Elmwood Park, IL

    Comments about KitchenAid 20 Cu. Ft. Architect Series II Stainless Steel Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

    The refrigerator portion of the unit is fairly adequate. Produce & fruit bins are small. Wish the deli tray was not one long unit, but split in the middle to access it from either door. Freezer portion is so small. My personal feeling is that it should not be so compartmentalized & that the homeowner determines how the freezer food fits. I will certainly have to adjust my grocery shopping for freezer items. Where do I now put large frozen pizzas? The smaller ice cubes are great, easy to handle. It is a total adjustment from a 25 c.f. side-by-side for a family of 4. Must say however that this unit looks great in my new kitchen.

    Drippy Doors

    By 

    from Austin, TX, United States

    Comments about KitchenAid 20 Cu. Ft. Architect Series II Stainless Steel Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

    This fridge was my top pick, but I'm disappointed to say that every time I open the doors, it drips water (several drops) onto my hardwood floors. It's condensation from the side strips of the inside of the doors & I have to mop up the floor with a dish towel each time to prevent damage. :-(

    Comments about KitchenAid 20 Cu. Ft. Architect Series II Stainless Steel Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

    I love this refrigerator! It looks great. I really like the counter depth. But my very favorite thing is how quiet this is. I cannot stand when a refrigerator makes noise - and this one does not make a peep.

    Looks great!

    By 

    from Pittsburgh, PA, United States

    Comments about KitchenAid 20 Cu. Ft. Architect Series II Stainless Steel Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

    Looks great in our kitchen. Great features too. We really like the internal water dispenser - don't have to worry about our kids splashing water on the stainless finish. The only drawbacks are the drawers. The bottom drawer in the fridge is full width, so you have to open both doors to access the drawer. The right drawer bumps into the seal between the doors, so it does not open all the way if the left door is closed. Regardless, we love it.

    Comments about KitchenAid 20 Cu. Ft. Architect Series II Stainless Steel Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

    I purchased the same refrigerator a few years ago and find the quality was much better. Have had Kitchenaid appliances for over 10 years and I am so sorry I spent the additional money to purchase these new appliances...I should have just bought Whirlpool appliances and saved the money...will never buy Kitchenaid appliances again
