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.

The Noise Level Was Too Much

By 

from Upstate NY

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

This fridge has been in my house for almost a week and today I've called the retailer and arranged to have it returned because of the constant and very irritating noise that it makes. The fridge is very nice in many other ways, and if not for the noise, I would've kept it. But after going back out and seriously shopping for other bottom freezer, french door, counter depth fridges......I've found others that have notably more interior capacity inside of only a slightly taller exterior.....for only a few hundred dollars more. I agree with other reviewers that the freezer is very small, but that was not a deal breaker for us, as we have a freezer in the garage. The interior of the fridge is very nice and very easy to see everything and nice quality shelving. The wine rack is a very nice feature for organizing and easy access to tall bottles. I do have doubts as to the sturdiness of the freezer drawer. It's a bit wobbly. We have a small home and the kitchen, dining, living and computer work area is all one open 1200 sq foot space. The intense weird buzzing noise that this fridge makes is giving me a headache. Due to the layout of my home, I can't get away from that noise. If you are not a sound sensitive person, and if you have a good deal of ambient noise in your home anyway, this might be a good choice for you. We read rather than watch TV....and I work from home on my computer and need quiet to focus. This fridge was to replace a 34yr old RCA fridge. It emits 4-5 times more noise than the old one and it runs virtually ALL the time. One of the noises this fridge makes is eerily similar to that of a dentist office drill. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the next fridge of a different brand name and tested by Consumer Reports to be in the top 5 quietest fridges.....will be much better for our purposes. If not, we'll go back to that very old, and very quiet fridge that is thankfully still working fine in our garage

We recently renovated our entire main floor of house, and purchased a whole suite of the KitchenAid Black Stainless Appliances. Love the look. Great quality. User friendly.

Clean fit

By 

from San Juan Capistrano, CA

Verified Buyer

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

This refrigerator is a great fit into our new cabinets. We remodeled our kitchen and went with this counter depth design. The inner workings of this refrigerator was the exact same as our previous refrigerator, which was a Kenmore. I believe they are all made by Whirlpool. That is fine. The counter depth refrigerator is about 2 to 3 inches shallower, hence counter depth. It didn't come with the little butter compartment, which I thought was odd.

Decent, but some concerns

By 

from Ontario, Canada

Verified Buyer

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

Have had this fridge for several weeks now. It does a pretty good job, though not without some concerns. Carrots on the top shelf were freezing with the thermostat set at 37. Dinged the door by hitting an open drawer the first day...not a hard hit. Stainless Steel seems to be really thin. Hard to keep the Stainless Steel door from getting lots of finger prints on it and needing constant cleaning (with special chemical)...and we don't have any kids!

Would not buy this again!!!

By 

from Atlanta

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

The layout is extremely poor, items falloff the shelves in the back as they do not even come close to the wall. Poor design. You have to open to get to water and on the door that has to be opened after the other side, again,poor design. The ice maker make very little ice and is designed for left handed people only, it cannot be switched, poor design again. The large crisper door squeaks constantly and has no way of lubricating it. We liked the black stainless, but they don't offer a complete kitchen in it. Maybe we should have used another manufacturer, it looks ok with the stainless but would have been better all the same. In general,I would not buy this again and it is on the pricey side too!

Love it!

By

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

I was worried by the reviews until I spoke with a friend who bought this same model last year and loves it. We went ahead and bought it a month ago and so far we LOVE it. Our vegetables are staying fresh much longer and we like the water inside and the ice maker in the freezer. Exactly what I was looking for. So far so great!
