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.

Looks beautiful

Submitted by Diana Dean - 9/14/2017

The refrigerator door shelfs are too tall awkward removing short items, the butter container takes up too much room we are not using it, cannot fit frozen pizzas in the freezer. Otherwise I love the refrigerator

Crown Jewel of the Kitchen!

Submitted by Rose - 9/4/2017

I had to buy a built-in to replace one that died in a kitchen I was not prepared to renovate. So many people suggested buying a 36" standard fridge and filling in the extra space with cabinet trim. I am so glad I bought this built-in! It was among the most reasonably priced in its class, and ended up making the kitchen look fabulous. Now when I see standard refrigerators, for me they detract rather than enhance to kitchen aesthetic. This is a beautiful appliance, and so worth the upgrade.

Submitted by Craig - 8/30/2017

I had this refrigerator installed about a month ago and I could not be happier. The features are plentiful and easy to use. My previous house had a sub zero which made me originally look at that brand for my new house. I am fortunate I looked up reviews (personal and professional review companies) and chose the KitchenAid, this one far surpasses every aspect the Sub Zero. The freezer has an incredible ice production rate. Previously I had to buy ice for parties, never again. Great Fridge - Great Price - Looks Amazing.

Beautiful, if you can say that about a refrigerator

So far everything is wonderful! We've only had our new appliaces 9 days. We replaced a kitchen aid refrigerator of the same style and a dacor double oven convection

Nice upgrade!

Submitted by EWPCHELLE - 8/7/2017

Bought this to replace a 14 year old Kitchenaid side by side. My favorite new feature is that fingerprints are much less likely to show on the new finish v. our old stainless steel model - no more having to wipe it down after each use! There seems to be a bit more space in this model as well. Hoping this lasts another 14 years!

Great looking built-in fridge!

Submitted by Appliancemaniac - 7/20/2017

I bought this to replace an older kitchenaid model because I knew it would fit in my cabinet space, and was one of the lower priced 42" built-ins. I do love the new led lights, and the handles are much nicer than before. It cools very well, ice maker is quiet and the ice is very clear, maybe due to the filter being a different style and larger than the previous model. I was only disappointed that the produce drawer filter was not integrated into the drawers, it's just a cheap plastic container with suction cups that holds the packets of filtering material. There were no instructions about this in the user guide, I only discovered it when I opened the gift box with the spare water filter. I was also missing one of the freezer door shelves, but KitchenAid has promised to send it to me. Now I just hope this fridge lasts longer than the last one (13 years).

Good refrigerator but not perfect

Submitted by JT - 7/10/2017

Nice refrigerator but has some design flaws. Freezer drawer fronts do not stay attached to the wire baskets. When opening drawers, the plastic drawer front comes off in your hand.

Nice refrigerator but not perfect...

Submitted by JT - 7/8/2017

Love the refrigerator but disappointed with freezer drawer design. Drawer is a wire basket with a plastic front. The plastic drawer front on both drawers will not stay attached to the wire basket rendering the drawers useless. This seems to be a design flaw with the drawer.

Submitted by sherry - 2/27/2017

It is a replacement of my old 42" GE Monogram. I am happy for the decision I made replace vs repair. Works out well. Actually better than I expected. The unit is very quiet. Hope it will last longer than GE Monogram.

Working great, easy to find everything in the fridge and freezer. Do wish one was offered without ice maker though.

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Charlie's Mom - 1/23/2017

We installed this fridge a couple of weeks ago and so far I don't have any complaints. It is quiet, the icemaker is quick, and it's just the right size. We really have loved the lighting inside the unit as well as the way the doors feel when you open and close them-- very sturdy and quiet. We did recieve the wrong base grill somehow-- but after contacting customer service I was informed that there is a seperate phone number for the built in units and I was VERY impressed with the customer service I recieved. I got a person without having to listen to elevator music and she understood my issue and sent a replacement out without question and incurring extra charges. I was very pleased with the experience!

Kitchen is my 'office'

Submitted by Chef/Mother/Wife - 12/16/2016

Replaced our side-by-side KA refrigerator ( 2004) model with 2016 model. Incredible lighting improvements. Ice maker lowered to much easier level for gathering ice. So quiet that we initially checked repeatedly to see if it was functioning properly. Shelves vastly improved: better sliding function, deeper, well positioned. Very satisfied.

Sub Zero vs. Kitchenaid

Beautiful inside and out!

Submitted by SKH - 10/21/2016

We love our new side by side built in refrigerator! We just did a total kitchen remodel and purchased all new KitchenAid appliances. We are happy with all of our appliances. They look great and perform well. My husband's only request was for a side by side refrigerator. I originally wanted french door refrigerator but have been very happy with the side by side. Great storage. Beautiful inside, easy to keep clean and organized. Food seems to stay fresh longer.

Yes, I recommend this product

love it

Submitted by MC - 10/19/2016

We have had this fridge for 3+ years and can't complain. Looks great and zero issues. Hoping for years of continued carefree ownership. A little loud but no more than our old subzero.

Submitted by Points - 10/7/2016

Had a built-in KitchenAid when bought new house. Lasted 16 years. Bought same type, capacity, etc. The unit is beautiful and refrigerator side is great. Problem on Freezer side is that it, every so often, on it's own, although set to 0 degrees, the thermostat drops as low as -10 degrees. With a mercury thermometer we put in the freezer it reads as low as -18 degrees. I then have to reset the temp control in the refrig back to factory settings 0/37. About an hour later the freezer rebounds to -0 to -2 degrees. And no, this is not a result of the freezer door being left open for a period of time. Because it is not an every occurrence we haven't called for service. This unit is only 40days new.

One Great Refrigerator

Submitted by cookiebaker - 10/1/2016

We needed to replace a counter depth refrigerator having pretty exacting measurements to fit the cabinet. The Kitchenaid was a perfect fit. Not only that, it is a perfect refrigerator; well built, great lighting, wonderful depth and sturdy shelving. The ice maker works amazingly fast. I love the silent doors---no suction sound. I would recommend this appliance over and over.

Problems persist and Kitchenaid service after sale is worst

Submitted by CHATTGUY - 9/18/2016

This is a follow up to my previous post on my knsn602ess purchased on 5-26-16. I have continued to call service only to wait over a week for a repair person to show up, order parts and have the over temp issue persist in the refrigerator. It is now sept 18, 2016 almost 4 months post my purchase and the refrigerator has yet to work for 1 week with out the error. The customer service team tell you kitchenaid's warranty says they will continue to work to resolve the issue, but you are basically stuck with a nonfunctioning unit until they can, and will not replace the unit till all repairs they deem necessary are exhausted or your warranty runs out. Buyer be ware.

No, I do not recommend this product


Submitted by homerepairnut - 9/6/2016

Granted it is only a week old, but we really like it. The LED lighting is awesome, it does what it is supposed to and looks great. A couple notes - the S.S. finish seems updated from the past and is a lighter shade/more smudge proof (that is good!), and I think this one is 1/2" deeper than our other older model. We really like it so far!

worst service experiance

Submitted by CHATTGUY - 8/22/2016

I purchased this built in KBSN602ESS00 unit in may 2016. Since day 1 we have had over temp alarm and no control of temp. I WAS TOLD THERE IS A SERVICE BULLITIN about bad board from factory. after 2 services problem still persist. board and wiring harness replaced. ref temp was 56 degrees. Trying to talk to service or schedule is horrible. I called 5 times this am and no response yet. NEVER will I BUY kitchenaid again unless the after sales experience changes.

Love the new refrigerator!

Submitted by Twinmom - 7/29/2016

Love the look of this refrigerator. Nice drawers inside too that open and close easily compared to older models. Ice drawer is good size for our family of five and fills quickly. Shelves in freezer a little smaller than our older model though, which is the only thing we do not like about it. But, like the drawers it has. Our older version didn't have any drawers in the freezer. Doors feel substantial and shelves are easy to clean.

New Ice Box

Our built-in Kitchen Aid went kaput so we replaced it with the newest model. The lighting is terrific. Still the ice drawer freezes over so individual ice cubes don't happen.

Excellent side-by-side fridge!

Submitted by Lake-side living! - 5/20/2016

I bought this fridge 3 weeks ago and we love it. Runs quiet, and makes ice extremely fast compared to our other fridge. We replaced a Northland Built in fridge, same size. No comparison in quality. Absolutely love the Kitchenaid! Looks great, runs quiet, inside drawers make it easy to organize. Would recommend this side-by-side to anyone.
