This 42-inch built-in refrigerator helps keep your sensitive ingredients at the peak of freshness. A sophisticated temperature management system continuously monitors and automatically reacts to slight changes in temperature. The side-by-side refrigerator has overlay-style trim to help create a fully integrated look that allows the refrigerator to virtually disappear into the cabinetry. Custom panels and handles must be ordered separately.




Overlay Panel-Ready

Allows the refrigerator to be customized to match surrounding cabinets with custom panels and handles (not included).


ExtendFresh Plus Temperature Management System

ensures ingredients remain fresh for maximum taste and texture using a sensor-controlled system with a variable-capacity compressor. There is one thermistor in the freezer and one thermistor in the refrigerator.


AquaSense Base-Grille Filtration System - Filtered by PUR®

Helps reduce contaminants from tap water and is conveniently located on the base grille to maintain usable refrigerator space.


Additional Features
Adaptive Defrost System

Helps maintain the natural flavor and texture of frozen food by minimizing the frequency of automatic defrost cycles to optimize efficiency and reduce freezer burn.


Adjustable SpillClean Glass Shelves

Feature raised edges that help prevent spills from spreading throughout the refrigerator and provide added visibility.


ClearVue Crispers and Door Bins

Makes contents visible at glance, helping to minimize the need to open and close drawers to find items.


SatinGlide® System

Uses ball-bearing rollers to give drawers a premium feel and allows them to move in and out easily, even when fully loaded.


Dual Magna Seal Gasket System

Promotes freshness and energy efficiency. A tight, immediate seal keeps cold air from escaping the refrigerator to help prevent unwanted temperature swings.

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

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. 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.

Great fridge with plenty of room

1/15/2016

We have owned this for a year and a half now. To date we have not had one problem with it. There is more room in this fridge than any other built in model we looked at. Freezer side has the same or more room than non built ins. Ice maker has a huge ice basket in there. Literally it's like having a full bag of ice at all times. We have to turn it off occasionally to use up most of the ice for a couple of days or it turns into a block. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering a built in over the "high end" and much less space models like subzero. No thanks.

NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS

12/13/2015

I WISH I COULD REPLACE THIS APPLIANCE. I HAVE SPENT SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY GETTING THE ICE MAKER FIXED, HAVE LIVED WITH A HIGH PITCHED BEEP FOR 6 MONTHS, AND NOW THE WHOLE UNIT IS KAPUT. A $1600 PART COMBINATION HAS TO BE ORDERED

Great operation and looks

tslande 4/24/2015

Just moved in to a house with a very open floor plan. Quiet operation and looks were important to us and this fridge is great. A bottle of water placed in the freezer is solid pretty quickly. Because it is cabinet depth, capacity is limited, but we have a second fridge in the utility room.

Keeps temps and has a great ice maker

thurt 12/28/2014

After doing hours and hours of research on a built in fridge that is panel ready we went with this one because of the dependability of Kitchen Aid products the good reviews and price. I think it's the best fridge for the price point that you can buy in this category. One thing I was very nervous about was the ice maker. A lot of fridges have a small ice maker that can never keep up when you have guest over. Not this one. This thing has a huge icemaker that flows out non stop. For a built in it has more room than most that I have encountered. You can actually fit 5-6 things on the top shelf, to include, gallon of milk, half gallon of milk, juice and two liters of soda. It is surprisingly roomy for a built in fridge. We have had it for four months now and the only issue that we have had (not a real big deal) is that is does make a knocking noise from time to time. It is an odd sound I'm not sure what that is in relation do but it does it occasionly. It doesn't effect the performance and you have to be in the room to hear it. I would definitely purchase again and highly recommend it to others.

Love how much food it holds.

Mama J 8/31/2014

We bought this refrigerator about two months ago as a replacement for our last Kitchenaid Refrigerator. It was getting old and we needed a newer more efficient one. We love the layout of it and how much food it can hold. We love the two large vegetable crispers, as we eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables. We also love the meat drawer and it's temperature control. We really love the control panel that tells us the temperature of both the freezer and the refrigerator. We love a side by side and the new ice maker and bin is awesome.

This product has performed very well.

ScottF 1/1/2014

I would have liked to rate the refrigerator excellent for all area's. However, we purchased this unit to replace a very similar Kitchen Aid Model which did not come close to working for it's full expected service life.

Not worth the $$$

chrislvgb 9/13/2013

Purchased the refrigerator in 2006 and have had the main circuit board replaced twice. This time the turn around is 4 weeks! For the $$ you would think it would last more than 7 years! My fruit and vegetables don't last any longer than in my old unit..in fact I think it is worse. I really researched units before deciding on the model...hope this review helps someone.

This refrigerator has excellent storage and easy to visualiz

GlennK 9/4/2013

I recently replaced an older Jenn Air side by side refrigerator with a new Kitchen Aid of similar size and features. So far, I have been extremely happy with its design and performance. There is plenty of room and it holds a lot of food both in the freezer section and the refrigerator section. The icemaker produces a large amount of ice which is helpful when entertaining. I am hopeful it will be more reliable and require less service than the previous Jenn Air model that was in the house when we purchased our new home.
