We had our cabinet maker create 1/4"-plywood pieces in the same finish as the door panels, and then attached adhesive magnetic strips to the back of the pieces. They hold to the sides of the doors and freezer drawer and create the custom finished look that everyone is hoping to achieve. You just have to measure below the hinges and inside the gasket seal for a proper fit. (Approx: doors 43 x 2-1/4", drawers 23 x 2-1/4")

I'm so disappointed with this refrigerator. i had custom panels made for the fridge in white to match my cabinets. i had my space made deep enough to install my fridge but we cant because the panels are impinging the opening of the door so therefore we've had to pull the fridge out 6 inches so you can open the door. and the body of this fridge is black of all things. its false advertising making people that it looks like a built in. As an interior designer im telling you this fridge with panel ready is flawed. Ive had installers come over and say they've never seen anything like this. You should not make people believe that it is going to look like a built because it does not and is not. I would and never will recommend kitchen aid again. I also ordered the induction oven that was suppossed to be available and found out 2 weeks before my install that its on backordered til december or january. I dont know what im going to do but it won't be staying in my kitchen.

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

The appliance was just what we were looking for as it had to be counter depth, 36" wide, door on top and freezer drawer below. We were getting tired of having to sit on the floor to get at some of the foods on our old lower door refrigerator and this one works really well. Also like to interior layout with the veg drawers and deli drawer.

Perfect fridge for new kitchen

By

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

We weren't sure how we'd like a counter-depth refrigerator after having a big side-by-side for 20 years, but we really like it. I love the freezer drawer in the bottom that has the scoop for the ice drawer. (With a simple switch you can determine if the ice drawer comes out or not when you pull out the freezer drawer.) The sleek, smooth look is stream-lined gorgeous, and the double door is so handy. I keep the things I use more often inside the right door for quick ins-and-outs. Highly recommend!

Great look

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

I really like the refrigerator. I was very worried it would be too small. However, I do have to say, currently it is only my husband & I in the house. The only drawback is the amount of space between the back wall & the shelf is quite large. You have to be careful what you put back there because even a water bottle can fall through. Once you realize this, the problem no longer exits because you know to put only larger containers along the back wall.

Panel ready.

By 

from Michigan

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Black French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

So after reading all the reviews... I am shocked !!! Sorry but did you not do your home work. We are building a home and I am all about having the panel frig. I have done SO MUCH research. I have called kitchen aid they were so nice to send me the specs. Also my cabinet company clearly knew that this would stick out further then your counters. Its not a built it. Which I agree is $$$$. Would love to have built in. The appliance store ( not your local big box store ) also warned me about see the black on the frig. My builder even knows about this. So I guess before you start blaming kitchen aid. I guess you should start blaming yourself for not doing your home work. Google its a beautiful thing.
