Outside, this built-in stainless steel French door refrigerator will seamlessly integrate with your cabinetry. Inside, the Preserva® Food Care System features three technologies that work in concert to assure crisp produce and deliciously flavorful foods while helping to eliminate refrigerator odors and the beautiful glossy silver Platinum Interior Design sets off the metallic accents of the shelves, crisper and baskets.

Adjustable Spill-Resistant Glass Shelves

are easy to clean and help prevent messes from spilling over into other parts of the refrigerator. The shelf edges are nano-etched with a finely textured surface that helps contain spills, and lets you use the whole shelf from edge-to-edge.

Platinum Colored Interior with Metallic Accents

Brings premium style inside the refrigerator to complement the quality ingredients you keep on hand. Sleek silver colored walls accented by metallic trim on shelves, drawers and door bins offer a step up from the standard white interior.

Preserva(R) 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(TM) Air Filter helps minimize odors while the FreshFlow(TM) Produce Preserver helps delay over-ripe

SatinGlide(R) System with Soft-Close

Add a luxury experience to the crisper drawers. The ball bearing rollers and glides allow effortless in-and-out movement even when fully loaded.

very disappointed, horrible design

Doors are awful and have never worked. The first fridge had a gap between the seal of the right door and the fridge so that when the doors were closed, cold air escaped. After >6 months of having multiple techs out to try to fix the problem and not being able to , and many angry conversations with the warranty team, Kitchen Aid agreed to send us a new fridge, on warranty. This then voided our warranty and the new fridge is worse (and now has no warranty). Every time we close the left door, the right one pops open an inch and stays open. This is extremely frustrating as every time our children close the door it gets left open and air escapes. Again, we have had 3 techs out to try to fix this problem and no one can. I'm sure this will reduce the lifespan of our fridge dramatically given the extra work on the motor every time the door is left partially open, and is also such a waste of energy. I would never buy this fridge again as there is clearly a flaw with the door system. What a waste of $10,000.

I replaced an older Sub-Zero fridge, and this unit fit in my cabinet hole perfectly. For the price, this is a great built in fridge. It holds a temperature, and the limited inside space is organized reasonably. However, for the price I would wish that it would include other small features like a door alarm.

So far so good

Only had it for 2 weeks but everything is going well. I do like the shelving and lighting compared to our side by side that we replaced with the french door style. Getting used to the ice being on the bottom. I do think that the price is very high as it offers the same features as a non built in style.

I bought this KA built-in to replace an aging SubZero built-in. Features are all I expected and the design enhances my kitchen.
