KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator - KRSC500ESS

Features:

  • Preserva® Food Care System
    Two independent cooling systems provide a dedicated refrigeration unit to help keep food fresh longer, and a separate system for frozen food. The FreshFlow™ Air Filter helps minimize odors while the FreshFlow™ Produce Preserver helps delay over-ripening.
  • Counter-Depth
    Gives the high-end custom kitchen look of a built-in refrigerator.
  • Professionally-Inspired Design
    Combines a bold blend of professionally-inspired styling with sleek touches for the home. This beautiful side-by-side refrigeration unit features Satin Textured Handles and the KitchenAid® Badge, a symbol of uncompromised quality.
  • In-Door-Ice® System
    Adds interior room in the refrigerator with an ice bin that mounts on the inside left door of the refrigerator, keeping it out of the refrigerator compartment and allowing for extra shelf space.
  • LED Lighting
    illuminates the inside of the refrigerator and freezer giving for better visibility. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LED lights use less energy, are maintenance-free and never need to be replaced.
  • Adjustable Spill Resistant Shelves
    Prevents messes from spilling over into other parts of the refrigerator. In place of a lip that can trap foods, the shelf edges are nano-etched with a finely texture surface that contains spills and lets you use the whole shelf from edge-to-edge.
  • Exterior and Ice and Water Dispenser
    Provides freshly filtered, great tasting water and ice that can be conveniently found right in the refrigerator door.
  • Clear Door Bins with Metallic Accents
    Allow you to see labels right through the bins, helping you keep condiments and other items organized. Each bin is removable, making it easy to pull out, chop up and store an amazingly fresh produce, and simply slide back into the fridge.
  • Measured Water Fill
    Displays and automatically dispenses water in ounces, cups, or liters. It can be programmed to pour a measured amount, helping make food prep easier. It can even be set up to fill essential items on a daily basis like a coffee pot or a water bottle.

Love the counter depth, smaller footprint in kitchen. Still plenty of room inside. Love that the ice and water is on inside of door. More freezer room. Handles are a little more industrial than I would prefer, but it matches the range and microwave. One flaw is that the door opens too far and if you let go of it, it crashed into the counter. Would prefer if it could be adjusted as my previous refrigerator

We bought this refrigerator almost a year ago. We have tried really hard to love it. It looks big, is nice and bright, and has a decent freezer capacity. The stainless steel is relatively easy to keep mostly looking clean and smudge-free. What they don't tell you when you buy it is that the crisper drawers, well as those in the freezer, only open about one third of the way. So, if you have a three pack of Romaine lettuce, it is nearly impossible to get into the drawer, much less get out. A bag of frozen fruit will fit if you squish it in, but once it is flat and frozen, it is nearly impossible to remove from the freezer. The drawers open only about as wide as a big apple. Anything larger, and you have to either cut it up for struggle to get it in and out. They also don't tell you – nor does KitchenAid – that the very large capacity top shelf should actually not have much on it if you wish to have consistent cooling throughout the refrigerator. You can see a vent at the very top of that top shelf. Fundamentally, you can put a couple of small yogurt containers on the top shelf, but absolutely do not block that vent or you will have condensation on the things you have in the door, and things at the bottom of the refrigerator will not be cold. Most of the time, people buy a large refrigerator like this because they need large capacity storage, for instance for a family with multiple teenagers and working parents. While KitchenAid was sympathetic, they basically said we were stuck. They could not tell us why the drawers didn't open all the way. We asked if we could trade the refrigerator in for something different where the drawers open all the way and there was greater flexibility adjusting the shelves so that it would be more functional, but they do not offer that kind of program. So we will be stuck with a beautiful, large, expensive refrigerator. Clearly, they knew this was a problem because there we design offers drawers that open all the way!

Great Side by Side Refrigerator

By 

from Peters Twp Pittsburgh, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

My refrigerator was installed on Feb. 17, 2017 and I love it. It is good looking and I like the various features on the beverage keeper. I like the storage unit for ice cubes giving me more room inside for frozen items. I like the space to keep wine bottles and I like the over all space inside the refrigerated area.

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

I ended up with this particular refrigerator because the original kitchAid refrigerator I originally ordered was discontinued. I was sent the new model of the French door counter depth one. The new model was made 1 inch taller and it wouldn't fit beneath my cabinet. So I had to settle for this side by side counter depth one. It is fine and seems to have plenty of room with some new features. My main complaint is the ice maker is very loud.

Never Plan to Buy KitchenAid again!!

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

KitchenAid appliances came with my new house and within the last two years of owning, I have had the service people out five times to fix the same exact issue, the condenser was icing up and the sensor didn't know what to do to make it stop I guess. The latest service appointment happened today where they told me that my two-year old refrigerator could no longer be fixed, that I need to buy a new one!! For the money that you pay, there has to be a better fridge out there...found out from my technician that I am not the only one with this same issue and when I called customer service all they way to do is sell me a crazy expensive warranty. Buyer beware!!

Clean great look and functions that fits in a smaller space

By 

from Ft. Worth, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Our Side-by-Side KitchenAid refrigerator was purchased and installed about a month ago to go with a KitchenAid stove top, combo microwave and oven and dishwasher. We are extremely pleased with how these appliances fit in the kitchen we remodeled which had a little less space than some kitchens. The look and functionality are great.

Water dispenser never works out. It is just out of control

By 

from Redondo Beach, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Wish I could return this refrigerator since the water dispenser never works properly. I have to lock it up since a day one of delivery because the water just comes out on and one without touching anything. If I knew it works like this, I would have never thought of buying this. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.

Buyer beware

By 

from Albuquerque

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Exactly one year in the refrigerator started leaking water. A service tech came out and discovered the water line was frozen, his explanation was it needs to be clean regulary ? I have never had to clean a water line with any other brand. He did wave the service call because it was one year to the day. Now three months later the ice maker quit working, service guy says it has to be replaced, 15 months old and we had to replace the ice maker $200. I really think it should have lasted longer. This is not the only Kitchen Aid problem we have had the 36" gas range had to be replaceed after 8 months and numerous service calls with no fix. The new range just had to have the main mother board replaced because it also would not hold a temperature or took forever to preheat. So much for buying "Made in the USA" I will not purchase KA products again and will not recommend them to anyone.

Since purchasing this refrigerator, I have had nothing but problems. (over 6 repairs/services)
I would NOT recommend this refrigerator or brand. For the price, I would choose from ANY of the other Brands on the market. Their customer service service is really bad as well. Actually, they are of ZERO help!!!!
