      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.

      This product performs the basic requirements of a refrigerator. Middle of the line; poorly designed and difficult to use at times.

      I am very happy with my purchase. I especially love the inside water dispensing feature. My former refrigerator was larger but I seems like this configuration provides more room.

      Cheaply made

      By chef tell

      from Austin, TX, United States

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

      This refrigerator is a huge disappointment. I cannot stand the french doors. They don't have a good seal when they're closed. When I open the door, I can open them w/ my baby finger, it's too easy, which makes me wonder just how uneconomically this appliance runs! Then you go to shut the doors & you have to make sure they are both closed because I can promise you, they aren't! I never leave the kitchen w/out checking the doors to make sure they're closed. Even w/ the alarm that goes off if the doors aren't completely closed is worthless. When I'm in the other room, I can't hear it. As others have said, my freezer wasn't closed all of the way one time & I found everything w/ major frost in it later that day. My freezer light hasn't worked since that day. I have an ice maker in the freezer, which leaves you w/ zero room in there for much food. I'm single & this whole fridge is too small for me. Then add on that it's just very cheaply made. I've only had this fridge 3 months & it makes me sick to think I'm going to have to live w/ this piece of junk.

      Fridge looks good. Good space in side. Only concern is a few issues with the water dispenser - slow and hard button to press.

      French doors in a counter depth!!

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

      I had my heart set on French doors, but hard to find in counter depth. Saw this online at Lowe's and ordered. Spacious with a lot of features. Very good purchase and exactly what we needed.

      Awesome use of space!

      By Norbert

      from Houston, TX, United States

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

      So happy that we bought this about a month ago. It is so much more efficient in the use of space that our old fridge, which was even bigger and deeper than counter depth! It is also so quiet, which is nice. Only point I guess is that the freezer drawers could be optimized a bit. Would be good if you could get it without an ice maker in the freezer as an option.
