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.

does not work as designed. do not buy!

By 

from Bethesda, MD

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

The refrigerator is marketed as allowing for any door to be opened and closed on its own. However, that is not how the appliance works in practice. Once you load up the doors (b/c of course you need to with so little space), the left door will not close properly. We had to manually flip the flap that seals the fridge in order to get it to close (even if the right door was open). the problem is that weight in the door weights it down and it misses the guide at the top of the fridge that is supposed to help it slide closed.

Our technician ended up adding two washers to the lower left door hinge to prop it up so that it can hit the guide and close properly. Even our certified Kitchenaid repairman could only do this.

Even now, when the right door is closed, closing the left door requires extra effort. In sum, I would not recommend that anyone buy this product. Find a fridge with one door.

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

The Internal dispenser drips. Also the top of the fridge get so cold at the recommended temp things freeze that are too high and the water dispenser reservoir is frozen. Just having to figure out what stuff to put where and shelf adjustments need to be. 3.5 Stars. The doors close better in a left then right instead of equally on either door.

Toddler tested, boy mom approved

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

We chose this refrigerator for our new home with our three boys in mind. It has been a lifesaver. There's an alarm on the door that lets me know if one of the boys have left the door open. The water dispenser is located inside the left door, in a fabulous place that is too high for my toddler to reach, yet low enough that my older sons can get their own drinks! Talk about a time saver! The freezer is deep and large enough to hold a half of a hog with lots of room left for Popsicles and waffles. The ice maker makes ice cubes that will fit into water bottles! The top of the refrigerator has plenty of storage space, enough to hold our 4 gallons of milk, plus juice, wine, and all our condiments. I'd buy this refrigerator again for sure!

Stay away from this product

By 

from Irvine

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

This appliance was installed in my new kitchen in late December, and today is Marcy 11th. The left door of refrigerator has a unique interior folding hinge that seals its closure. But if you don't push this door hard enough, it will not completely close. As well, because of this folding hinge the appliance repair person informed me that the right door is supposed to be opened before opening the left. Now please understand, the water dispenser is on the left, so in order to get a glass of water you have to open both doors. I was advised that my right door seal will continue to tear unless remember to do this. Fortunately I purchased an extended warranty because I predict I will be seeing the repair person often if the seal tore in just 2 months.
Also the refrigerator shelves have a 2 1/8" OPEN GAP between each glass shelf and the rear wall of the fridge. Shelves have a 1 1/8" open gap between the glass shelf and the side walls of the fridge. Therefore, all items with diameters smaller than this (jam jars, soda and juice cans, juice packs, glass beer bottles, glass wine bottles -- e.g., dessert wines, condiments, narrow maple syrup bottles, etc.) will go crashing down the back -- or sides -- of the refrigerator. TERRIBLE DESIGN.
PLEASE HEED MY WARNING. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!! I'm not exaggerating, I've only had it 2 months!!!

I had to get a counter depth refrigerator and thought it was going to be too small. I purchased this one and it fits everything quite nicely! I am very happy with it and it looks good.

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

We've owned this for a few months and are very happy.Design and quality are excellent. Vegetables keep dramaticaly better than our last fridge. The only small negative is that we have heavy cookware and we place the larger pieces dead center where two separate shelves meet. Placing them on a single shelf causes the shelf to tilt slightly toward the side.
