Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Good but could be better.

Very quiet and spacious. Some design features could be improved. Inconvenient to stop ice maker...should not have to open both French doors in order to open refrigerator drawers.

Ice maker does not work even after seven repair attempts

Submitted by Pablo - 8/30/2017

This is a very expensive refrigerator and the ice maker does not work. The appliance repair people were out here SEVEN times to try to fix the problem and have not been able to do so. Whirlpool has not honored their warranty yet and the repair men keep coming out to try to fix this to no avail

Great, except for a noisy spring

Submitted by Fred - 6/9/2017

The french door refrigerator looks and works great. Good lighting and adjustable shelves and good use of space. The spring in the left door, which has the double seal, occasionally twangs like it got caught in the wrong position, but otherwise we love it.

Beautiful appliance

Submitted by Nana - 5/17/2017

Bought a house 2 years ago with a built in kitchen aide refrigerator that died. It was 20 years old. Had a little problem finding replacement as had to be special ordered. However after getting it installed I am very pleased. It is very nice to look at and is spacious. I only hope this one will last 20 years. Love it.

So far so good

Submitted by Solubility Constant - 3/23/2017

Bought this a month and a half ago. It's very quiet compared to my last fridge (when ice is being made or consender is running you can hear it, but usually those are not happening). Ice maker works well and it holds a lot. Still getting used to counter-depth (cannot fit a pizza box in there) but that doesn't have anything to do with the fridge, just the style and depth of all built-ins.

Yes, I recommend this product

Submitted by Dar - 3/9/2017

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)

Exceeded expectations

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.

Submitted by Jlo - 2/10/2017

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.

Yes, I recommend this product

Great-looking 'fridge - just wish the shelves were deeper

Submitted by DeeJaySea - 1/16/2017

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.

Yes, I recommend this product

Not worth the price

Submitted by Aga - 1/13/2017

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.

Looks large and impressive

Submitted by Antique1 - 12/18/2016

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.

Yes, I recommend this product

This product is a lemon, DO NOT BUY

Submitted by Frustrated with KA - 11/24/2016

I purchased this fridge and the frame cracked and was deemed irreparable so KA replaced it. The replacement broke 5 months later due to a completely different reason from the 1st one. The recommendation was to have it replaced but KA refused. I emailed teh CEO twice and he never responded. I was asked to contact customer service and I did but they never got back to me. I finally had it fixed because KA gave me no other choice and the fix has lasted 2 weeks before the same issue occurred again. Now I am back to a broken fridge. I don'r understand how KA won't at least respond back to me and stand behind it's product.

No, I do not recommend this product

Loving it!

Submitted by Pawsitiv1 - 10/20/2016

I bought this about 2 months ago and had to wait for it to be delivered - about a month ago. I've been using it and loving it - although my renos are still ongoing so I haven't seen it installed with the cabinetry yet. Good visibility of all shelves. I wish the interior lights would come on as soon as you open a door (not wait till they hit a certain 'angle' of being open. The covered interior (butter?) container at the top of the door sometimes gets caught when opening the door and opens allowing stuff to fall out. Looks great inside and out and is keeping things nice and cold.

Yes, I recommend this product

Great Value

Submitted by Rick - 10/15/2016

Great product beautifully made attention to detail, would compare it to Thermadore or Viking. Would recommend as a great buy.

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Frustrated - 10/7/2016

5 Months old and has completely broken down. Needs a new motherboard and more. Repair technician equated the issue to an engine going out on a brand new car and recommended that it be replaced instead of fixed. Customer service said they won't replace. Sent an email to the CEO and didn't get a response. You spend this much on a refrigerator and you expect it to last 20 years.

sufflicilent space and shelving

Great Looking. Over the top if a few improvements were made

Submitted by Demanding Consumer - 9/6/2016

So far,I am mostly delighted with my purchase. It's a terrific looking refrigerator which performs well. (Even the ice cubes are good looking.) The black doors are really splendid - a major design innovation. I have just three suggestions. The drawers in the refrigerator portion need drawer pulls or recessed spaces to make them easy to grip. There is no obvious way to pull them out. The butter containers do not open easily. A little tab on the bottom of the lid would do the job. It would also be nice to be able to open one door (not both) to get at the drawers. These are small matters. 5 stars for me.

Yes, I recommend this product

Great Frig

Submitted by Len - 8/29/2016

Lots of room

Lots of room compared to our old Monogram. Love the freezer being on the bottom. Left door does slam shut and causes items in door to jostle.

Big improvement

Submitted by SuzyQ - 8/1/2016

We replaced our kitchen aid built-in when the older model quit working. This one is far superior to be old. Our old one never really seemed to work right. We love the platinum interior and LED lights. Everything stays really cold. The ice maker is very good as well.

Love the Space!

Submitted by Kaceykay - 7/23/2016

I love the amount of space available in this refrigerator! Everything has easy access. I was unsure of the ice being inside the freezer, but after dealing with numerous faulty water/ice dispensers, this is a pleasure.

Beautiful builtin refridge/value!

Submitted by Ed - 7/11/2016

We have had this 42" builtin for 3 weeks now and it is quite, well designed, professional looking. Did a lot of comparisons and this unit won based on features where they count, lighting, price, reputation. Decided to not invest in door dispenser and other bells/whistles to keep it simple, reliable, and durable.

Yes, I recommend this product

Great looks, some design mistakes

Submitted by Natali - 7/11/2016

I have had this for about a month. The color inside is quite nice. Looks good. I like that the ice maker is inside the fridge. I think an indoor water dispenser would be nice. The drawers do not open if you don't have both doors open (it might scratch the seal between doors) which makes it a bit uncomfortable for using. The other thing is that it has a lot of humidity. I think there might be something not working properly. The veggie drawers don't have a humidity control, instead it has an extra thing you out there. I think if it where built inside like others it would be much better. I would have liked to see a deeper freezer and a compartment for items like ice cream. It seems a bit simple for such an expensive fridge.

No, I do not recommend this product

Spacious refrigerator

Submitted by Tina - 6/25/2016

Beautiful refrigerator fits well in my kitchen. The only reason I gave it a four star because it doesn't have water dispenser.

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Chicki - 2/20/2016

I love the design, inside and outside. It is simple and elegant. The LED lights inside make it look amazing when you open the doors. We bought the black stainless steel and absolutely love the color. The ice maker is not in the door, which I thought would be a real inconvenience, but I find that I really like it better in the freezer because it gives me so much more room on the inside. It would be nice to have had a water dispenser built in on the inside, and the price is too high, but other than that it is perfect. I am sure I will be happy with this product for many years.

Some Nice Features...

Submitted by Shewrites - 2/5/2016

I replaced my Kitchen Aid side by side, with the French door model. The s-b-s was in our home when we purchased it, and...I don't care for them. Frankly, there still isn't much to choose from in large built-ins. I saw so many free standing models that I preferred, but our existing space requires a built-in. I wanted the middle drawers and a deeper freezer....water dispenser inside the unit and a larger capacity ice maker. The interior of our purchased model is luxurious! The lighting, shelving and door compartments are convenient and roomy.. It's quiet and easy to clean. Kitchen Aid products are the best available!

Yes, I recommend this product

Love it!

Submitted by Stay at home mom Chris - 12/8/2015

So excited to have my new refrigerator! The interior is fabulous. I love having the option of storing platters and extra large pots and pans. My only negatives would be the door pieces with a hinged pull-down door should have a lip on the bottom. Sometimes the items I store in there fall out when opening because it has a flat floor surface. And another nit picky item is that I feel like i have to push on the door to secure a seal. Otherwise, I'm enjoying the refrigerator tremendously.

Good frig

Submitted by Daryl - 12/4/2015

I had this built-in delivered and installed by a local appliance dealer about 3 weeks ago. Our previous Kitchenaid side by side died after 10 years. We like the design and look of this one much better. For the same size frig it seems the layout accommodates more storage than the side by side. The platinum interior with the LED lighting is much more appealing visually than the previous one and friends have remarked on how nice it looks and how accommodating the layout is.

So far so good...

Submitted by MS - 11/11/2015

We bought it as replacement to built-in Kitchenaid Superba42 model. The shelves on the door have rough edges unlike my old fridge. And also, I am still getting used to French Door concept. I have to open both the doors to take some vegetables from the produce drawer. Otherwise, the refrigerator is working great and I am loving it!!

Great Fridge

Submitted by Chris - 10/28/2015

Love the French doors

Submitted by Cris - 9/20/2015

I bought a KitchenAid built in refrigerator in 1992 and it finally gave out. We bought this new KitchenAid French door frig a month ago and it has been installed now for about 2 weeks. It is so quiet that we hardly hear it running. The controls are easy to use and the bottom freezer is large enough for all our frozen items. Now we don't have to squeeze the frozen items in the narrow doorway of our old freezer. We are very happy with our purchase.
