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!

Excellent Features

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

My wife and I have enjoyed the many features of the KitchenAid Side by Side Refrigerator. We like the easy access, the lighting that reaches all corners of the shelving, the well organized compartments for fruits, veggies, cheeses, etc. The freezer is also well laid out for easy storage and access. I would highly recommend!

Slick design

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

I bought this fridge to complement my other Kitchen-Aid appliances of the same series.
Selected side by side because it is easier to organize the freezer compartment than the
3 Door design.

Excellent refrigerator with all the new technology and the LED lights are bright. Enough space but wish KitchenAid designed the interior better.

Compact and attractive

By

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Refrigerator is relatively quiet and has ample drawers and shelves. It's counter-depth size does limit storage space. There are only two of us in the house so it's not a big issue for me but I could see it being a challenge for a larger family or someone who likes to stock up on lots of food items. The ices cubes are also kind of small - about half the size you might get in a regular sized refrigerator. Again, not a deal breaker as it works well in my smaller kitchen.

A good buy. The Main problem is that the fridge door opens 180o. They've fixed it twice.

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

I purchased this just a few weeks ago but absolutely love it. I didn't have a lot of choices on size due to distance from my island and counter but fridge itself is stunning. I like that the ice maker is on the side of the door and not taking up a full shelf in the freezer. Its also nice that is measures out how much water you use.

Ice building up behind vegetable drawers and not cooling

By 

from Santa Clarita, CA

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

Hello I have had my Kitchen Air Architect II series side by side SS counter depth refrigerator for 2 years and I'm experiencing the same problems listed on your website.

Please let me know what can be done. The freezer is not getting cold (ice cream is not firm). Ice is building up behind the lower vegetable drawers in the refrigerator. I've read and adjusted the temperature controls to no avail.

Please advise, I paid a for a top price product but I'm experiencing a sub-par product.

This has been a great addition to my kitchen. I love that I can remove the ice tray for larger ice needs. I love the look, I love that it measures the water. It is nice and bright inside making it easier to find the item you want.

Comments about KitchenAid Monochromatic Stainless Steel Side By Side Refrigerator:

This is a terrible refrigerator. Only have had it 18 months and today will be the fourth time for repair service.
The vents on the fresh food side ice up and temperature starts to rise. Was told Kitcheaid will not do anything about this issue. Reading many other reviews with the same problem.
