The 24.2 Cu. Ft. 42" Width Built-In Panel Ready we installed performs exactly as advertised. It is quiet, the doors work well ( even with heavy panels) and the interior design of the shelves are very functional. Ice maker works very well. We were able to design the cabinets to accommodate a flush installation and allow the full 135 deg door opening that allows the door to stay open. Interestingly, the shallow 24" depth that seemed like a limitation is in practice more convenient because of improved access to the back. The white interior is fine.

KitchenAid I think it's misleading, bordering on deceptive, to call this product "built-in" or even "counter depth" for that matter. The hinges don't articulate like you might expect on a top-of-the-line model and as such you've designed it to protrude beyond the run of cabinets, beyond even the counter. Hast to be like that to allow the doors to open in its present design. Many of us buy this product, having seen so many pictures of truly-built-in refrigerators only to be stuck with the product and an imperfect kitchen. It's interesting that you don't have any pictures of this product in actual installations from the side.You've been in business for how long and you still can't get this basic thing right??Anybody, you can Google for images, but I have attached one here. We built our entire cabinets following KitchenAid's own dimensional specifications. You can see the result. Looks like it was poorly planned, thanks to KitchenAid. I do have bigger fish to fry. Which is what angers me about having to deal with this.

Comments about KitchenAid 42" Built-In Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator With Platinum Interior Design:
When renovating our kitchen we replaced our refrig with a counter depth one. We love it. (although the ice maker is a little noisy and drips ice when full)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Except for an installation problem this unit has a user friendly layout and very quiet function.It would be nice to have a classier and more detailed user guide included.We are happy with it and would recommend
Wow this is big. Took a whole crew to deliver.
from St Louis
First of all Lowe's did a great job installing this gigantic fridge without scratching it or our floors. The fridge is beautiful to look at inside and out. Very thoughtful touches such as a bin to store eggs and functional ice tray. Very quiet. I don't think I've ever heard it make a sound. The only drawback we have experienced within the first month is the flap on the left door that seals the French doors was somehow broken and doesn't close easily anymore. Apparently we are going to have to be very careful opening and closing the doors.
Sleek, contemporary design

There is nothing I don't like about this refrigerator. The inside space is designed so well. I'm actually having a problem filling it up. Also, it is beautiful!!!

Great-looking 'fridge - just wish the shelves were deeper
from Long Island, NY
We replaced an old KitchenAid 42" side-by-side model that was 22 years old with this new beauty in October 2016. The old one had wooden panels that matched our cabinets, so this new black one stands out a lot - but that's okay because it is quite handsome. The old one seemed to hold more because the interior shelves were definitely deeper. If I designed this, I'd consider omitting shelves on one door, then the interior shelves and drawer could be deeper. I'd also add an exterior water dispenser (which takes up room inside, I know. But still.) This new one is much quieter - that's for sure - and that's a good thing. All in all, we're pleased this this guy.

24.2 Cu. Ft. 42" Width Built-In Panel Ready French Door Refr
from St Petersburg Florida
Nice fridge. Don't like that you have to open both doors in order to access the inside drawers. Did not realize that the handles don't come with the fridge.
Not worth the price
from la canada , ca
Overall the refrigerator is too small , freezer is small too.When i open the right door , the door does not stay open , i have to hold with my hands , so inconvenient while trying to grab things inside the refrigerator .Very expensive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Looks large and impressive
from Granite Bay, Ca
Our former Kitchen Aid refrigerator died after 17 years of use. We needed a built in with the exact dimensions of our old unit so it would fit in the specific cabinet space. This one made it with 1/8 inch to spare. Our old unit had wood panels and this one is Black stainless steel. The unit is very impressive in Black stainless and has given our kitchen an updated look. The inside is a grey metal look and we would have preferred it to be white like all other refrigerators but I guess it just takes getting use to it. Overall it met our specific needs and we really like the Black stainless steel and will eventually replace our other appliances with the Black stainless steel.
