We needed a bigger fridge so we searched for one with the most storage with the French door style. This one has tons of storage but isn't great for condiments (never knew we had so many till we started trying to find a spot where they worked in this fridge) or for tall things like milk or wine. If you have containers, it's amazing. Two kind of annoying things - the drawer opens on its own whenever you open the doors. Also, the left door (with the icemaker) catches on the right door sometimes. Kind of annoying because you then have to open the right door, close the left door, then re-close the right door.
Both the ice maker and dehumidifier broke after 14 months. To KitchenAide's credit they covered it with a one time offer to fix it. It just worries me when something this expensive breaks so soon. The store I bought it from who has a repair services says Kitchenaid cheaped out after many years and he's seen numerous ice maker problems.
I have owned the KitchenAid Architect Series II french door refrigerator for five years now, and I am still absolutely in love with it. The french doors are such a nice touch, and it is just top of the notch quality. All of my groceries always fit in so easily, and it always stays the perfect temperature. It looks great in my kitchen, and I have already recommended it to all of my family and friends. I just love it. Noise Level Not noisy at all. Interior Organization I love the different compartments in this refrigerator. It makes organizing my food and groceries very simple. Temperature Control I love how I can set the temperature of the refrigerator and the freezer to whatever I want it to be. It is always accurate. Ease of Cleaning All refrigerators are a little bit of a pain to clean, but this one is pretty easy to clean. Durability Very sturdy. No problems there. Design This french door refrigerator is so sleek and proper. It makes my whole kitchen look nicer.
It is a work of genius! I love it it is so well worth what you pay for it. I love it one of the best investments I have made in years. Noise Level So quiet you do not ever hear it running. Interior Organization It is just the best. The pull out 3 level freezer drawers are a dream, they have a design that makes the way they move as a smooth solid, fluid movement. The adjustable shelves and drawers are great for organization. Temperature Control The extended fresh temperature management system is fantastic for keeping food fresh for a while. And the fresh chill temperature control deli locker is wonderful for keeping you cold cuts to last and keep their freshness longer. Ease of Cleaning Clean up is easy except for all the moving parts just gives you a little more area to clean. Durability This refrigerator is going to be in my kitchen for the next 20 years it is just a piece of quality machinery. Design All things were considered when they made this fridge, your accessibility, storage, temperature control and utilizing all the space that is there. I really love it and so does my daughter. It is hers.
This is our second Kitchaid fridge (clearly we had good results with the first one so we opted for a second). The fridge works great - plenty of ice, rarely clogs up. Fairly quiet running machine. Even with the counter depth model we still have plenty of room in the fridge and freezer. The kids have a habit of pulling open the freezer door but aside from that we love the design. Noise Level Machine is quiet - except when dispensing ice you barely know it's in the room. This is important for us since we have 3 youngsters still taking napes. Interior Organization Very flexible design - interior shelves have lots of height options to accommodate larger items when needed. The door shelves don't have much flexibility in changing the layout but they work well and hold tons of condiments, cans of soda, and even liter bottles. Temperature Control The menu offers easy access to temps controls and the fridge holds it's temp well. Sometimes items left in the fridge near the water/ice maker will freeze - this happens occasionally, not really sure why it's not a consistent thing. We usually keeps eggs there so when they freeze it's a waste. Ease of Cleaning Like most fridges - the biggest pain with cleaning is taking everything out! The exterior cleans well - the finish isn't SUPER shiny which we like since it doesn't show finger prints as much. Durability no problems yet.... Design great design, looks sharp, interior offers nice options.
Was so excited to get My KitchenAid Architect Series II French Door Refrigerator/freezer. I bake a lot of cakes and wanted the wider shelves for sheet cakes and it works well for that purpose. I like the deep shelves on the doors which are handy for gallon size milk jugs. It runs very quietly. However, my ice maker in the door blocks up so much we only use it for water and dip ice out of the storage bin in the bottom freezer. Also, when our grandchildren need to get snacks out of fridge or fill their water glass, they have to use a stool because everything is higher in this refrigerator than they are in regular side by side refrigerators. In addition, be aware that looking for something in the freezer is like digging around in a chest freezer because everything is piled on top of each other making items harder to find. This unit is very attractive but does scratch fairly easily. I would only recommend it with caution.
I have this model and has been very used. It is versatile and durable. A lot of the Fridge's like this have drawers that feel flimsy - this does not feel that way. My 7 yr old can reach the bottom self and all the drawers below. The water is ice cold. Filters are not expensive either.
We love this refrigerator. It is very durable, has plenty of room, very easy to clean, looks nice, rates a 10 in temperature control. Only thing I didn't like is the price but luckily we caught ours on sale. Always remember though...you get what you pay for and this refrigerator is worth it.
I love this fridge. I was my splurge in my new kitchen. I love to two doors, space and organization. Everything's at eye level. The fridge being on top gives full visual of everything inside. The freezer is easy to access. I can be hard to organize if you have a lot of stuff in it. But the pull out basket design helps. This is a great fridge for parties. Fitting full pans and half pans, sheet cakes and platters with ease. Noise Level This doesn't fridge doesn't make a lot of noise at all. It is very quiet. Interior Organization I love the draws, and the organization. There is plenty of room. Can put a large sheet cake in it with out a problem. Temperature Control I have never had a problem with this fridge holding a temperature. Ease of Cleaning Glass shelves are easy to clean. Durability The fridge is very durable. The exterior takes a beating but it still looks like new. Design The design is very functional. Better then any other fridge I have had in the past. I like that the filtered water is located on the inside if the fridge.
