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.

Too Early to Tell if it is the right value

Sick of all the Gimmicks 5/31/2015

Purchased in April 2015. We had issues right away with frost buildup due to ice forming on the rails and therefore not letting the freezer door close all the way. We had to call a third party service repair (doesn't any appliance seller cover their own products?) They replaced the seal around the door. The drawers for the fruits and veggies seem very flimsy, a lot less sturdy than the may tag we had before. We are waiting to see if it continues to run properly.

No, I do not recommend this product

terrible drawers

KatieBoo 4/18/2015

I have always heard good things about kitchenAid but never owned anything by KitchenAid. Thought this time I would try a new refrigerator. Hopefully it will be economical but the drawers are awful. The are made of flimsy plastic and they do not open or close well at all. I am so disappointed thinking that if the refrigerator would last 20 years like my last one that I will have to struggle with the drawers everytime. I wish you could replace them with some sturdy drawers. the refrigerator I got rid of had great drawers. if they would have fit this one. I would have kept them. sorry for the not so nice review but I am more than a little disappointed. I am 66 years old and handicapped and this may be my last refrigerator and was hoping that I would enjoy it

A great basic fridge that does the job!

Dragonflywings 2/13/2015

I have owned this fridge for 2 months now and am very happy with its performance and features. I had trouble finding another fridge like the old Amana I had to leave behind when I sold my house. This one is very similar and I was happy to find it from a good company like KitchenAid. Don't like/need all the bells and whistles. This is a good basic fridge that does the job and is well made.

NIce Refrigerator

sjmatt 1/23/2015

I purchased this refrigerator in December. It is a nice unit. Since I was constrained by height, I had to downsize from my previous Amana refrigerator and am still getting used to less space. Having the freezer on the bottom makes the fresh food section much more accessible.

Eria 1/23/2015

I bought this refrigerator a couple of months ago. My kitchen couldn't accomodate a larger one but this one is perfect. I especially like the third drawer in the refrigerator. So handy! And the freezer on the bottom is such a great idea.

Great freezer section. Poor storage in refrigerator section.

Gege3691 12/26/2014

We bought this refrigerator a few months ago for its design and characteristics but are seriously disappointed with the upper section as we find ourselves constantly reorganizing it to be able to store normal amounts of food. 19 Cu. Ft. should be sufficient but the freezer section is too big in proportion with the rest. In addition, there is loss of at least an inch on each side and the back of the 6 tablets and sections, the meat drawer is not deep enough to hold a chicken or a roast (ok for steaks, chops, cold cuts etc.). There is good storage in the door but it impedes on the depth of the fridge. We buy lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and find ourselves moving them around constantly. We wind up feeling very frustrated as we are constantly reorganizing the content of the fridge.

Perfect for our needs

Nan9 12/13/2014

This refrigerator has so many excellent features I don't know where to start. It runs quietly, keeps everything at the appropriate temperature, has a freezer that is easy to access and to see what is there, and the vegetables are always crisp and fresh. We require a refrigerator that will fit into the space allotted in our kitchen design so many of the bottom freezer models won't fit. This is a perfect fit. So far it has lived up to its reputation.

Many things to like!

Bonnie Neaves 11/8/2014

We bought our fridge about a month ago, and one feature that makes it stand out from all other fridges which we have owned is that it is easy to see what is in the fridge! The freezer is a pull-out drawer at the bottom with a sliding rack at the top allowing a separation between layers of frozen food. Having the fridge over the freezer allows for better visibility of contents, and is easy on eyes and back. We're not forgetting about food and then losing it to spoilage - it's all visible. The footprint of the fridge is slightly smaller than our previous fridge, and yet there is more room inside! The meat drawer on the bottom is also very handy. We didn't know if we'd like it, but it is in constant use. The pockets in the door are solidly constructed - so far we haven't found anything flimsy in the construction. The fridge seems to be a uniform temperature - no icy spots or warm spots. The only reason we have not given it 5 stars, is because it is a little noisy from time to time, but this is not continual and we're getting used to it. I have hated every fridge we have ever owned in our long marriage - now for the very first time, I actually like my fridge!

simplicity

amy74 9/28/2014

It's hard to find a bottom-freezer fridge without water and ice. This one is excellent. The top fridge is easier for us older folks!, and the bottom freezer easier to use. Controls on the front are nice. Everything seems sturdy. My one complaint is that there isn't as much space for tall items, and I actually had to take out a door shelf. I'd rather not have my milk in the door (warmer, I understand), but there is not room in the fridge proper. Otherwise, we're very happy with this purchase.

ScottMc 9/17/2014

I bought my fridge a little over a month ago and have no regrets. I was looking at 2 others makes and did not like the exterior on the one but liked the interior and vice versa with the other make. The Kitchenaid model combined what I liked about both.

freya46 9/15/2014

I moved into my new home in the beginning of June. One of the first things I bought was my Fridge. I love it. My veggies stay fresh much longer and nothing wilts. It is convenient to use, is quiet and does exactly what it should. I am a happy camper.
