    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.

      Great Counter-Depth Refrigerator

      By 

      from Malvern, PA, United States

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

      We took delivery on this refrigerator about two weeks ago. The only negative comment I have is that the freezer light stopped working within a week. I still have to find a replacement bulb. Otherwise it was easy to install and fits the opening perfectly.

      Really great but does show fingerprints!

      By 

      from St. Louis County, MO, United States

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

      My only complaint with this refrigerator is that the main surface of the door does show fingerprints. Obviously this is to be expected with stainless steel, but I have yet to really find a solution. We're getting ready to try Pledge. The flip up storage area below the two drawers does not open all the way when one door is still closed. Minor detail, but something I find myself keep trying to do.

      We bought this 20 Cu. Ft French Door Refrigerator with our Fifth Wheel and so far the 3 times that we have been out it has been an excellent choice that we made, because it has a lot of room.

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

      My husband and I purchased this refrigerator as we needed a counter-depth style fridge. It was installed on March 5th and so far has been great. The internal filtered water line is a great advantage as I don't have to stock bottled water. There is plenty of room to store what I need.

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

      I purchased my refrigerator about 2 weeks ago and absolutely love it. I especially love all the space and shelves located in the doors. The temperature settings keep the frig and freezer at consistent temperatures throughout the day. I love the built in water filtration system. Definitely happy with my purchases!

      "A Happier Kitchen"

      By 

      from Birdsdeye, UT

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

      Our beautiful high quality Kitchen Aid Refrigerator fits perfectly in the designated spot and gives us extra space for traffic in our crowded kitchen area. Some special features, new to us, are: ... the great Produce Preserver (our lettuce has never stayed so crisp) ... the door alarm has already alerted us to an open door ... the temperature lights are easily seen ... the temperature controls are easily adjusted ... the water filter is very accessible ... the shelves and drawers are designed for easy removal and cleaning ... high quality stainless steel finish is attractive

      I purchase about three weeks ago and could not be happier. Wonderful space in the refrigerator, and keeps the perfect temperature. Freezer drawer has plenty of room, and the ice maker produces lots, and lots of nice. Happy customer!

      Great Refrigrator

      By 

      from Undisclosed

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

      I spent days researching counter-depth refrigerators to replace my 20-yr. old side-by-side. Staying away from the big-box retailers (where sales reps appear to be limited in their product knowledge), I headed to my local appliance store. The well-experienced sales person steered me directly to the Kitchen-Aid model. It fits perfectly, has a crisp, pristine look, ample storage space (especially on the doors) and the adjustable shelves are great. I didn't consider that the freezer space would be less than my former side-by-side; I'll simply have to be more mindful when buying items for freezer storage. I would have rated this product 5 stars, except there's an intermittent noise coming from the ice maker. Since I have no plans to use it, I wish there was a way to disconnect the mechanism that causes the noise. Also, perhaps with use the freezer drawers will slide in and out with greater ease.
