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.

Great Price - Acceptable Performance

Submitted by Don - 10/3/2017

For a built-in fridge of this size, we were very happy with the price and the look in our all KitchenAid kitchen with the nicest KitchenAid appliances available. The look is simple - lots of flat stainless steel, and the quality is in-line with the higher end non built in models. Not on par with competing built-ins, such as Thermador or Sub-Zero, but at a much lower price. We are experiencing an "issue" with ours whereby the freezer will drop from 0 degrees to -10 on a daily basis. After a repairman replaced various parts and called KA several times, they determined that this is normal - that the system is boosting the cold because the ice maker has not harvested ice in a while. Of course, we have a separate KitchenAid ice maker, so we keep the one in the fridge off. Apparently that doesn't matter - the temperature cycling doesn't know or acknowledge that the ice maker is off and just keeps cooling down to negative 10 to boost the ice maker...seems like an odd design to me, but so long as the system can handle it, I guess it otherwise performs fine after 1 year.

Submitted by disappointed foodie - 8/16/2017

This refrigerator is a big disappointment. I can't put any fruit or vegetables in there. i love to cook and i need fresh fruits and veggies. they are all wilted or rotten in a few days. I have an old refrigerator in my garage and it works better than my brand new one. I called the person who sold it to me and he has nothing to say. I can't put things on the top shelf or they will freeze.

Great refrigerator and freezer. It replaces a 30 year old Sub Zero. The Kitchen Aid has a much better use of space than the new Sub Zeros. Am very happy with it so far. We've had it about 2-1/2 weeks.

Problem Control Boards

Submitted by mashelto - 11/22/2016

Let me start and say that our entire kitchen is filled with KitchenAid Appliances. We saw KA as a lower cost, high quality alternative to brands such as Sub Zero and Thermador. The refrigerator has been a major disappointment. The freezer drawers have had to be replaced 2X already due to quality issues. Today, we discovered that our control board has to be replaced. PLEASE NOTE: KitchenAid Supplier for the Control Board is no longer in business and this is now manufactured by a third party. The backlog is 3 weeks and my PRE-PAY bill was $640. To add insult to injury, if you opt to keep the malfunctioning board, you are billed an additional $60! I do not understand how a company that sells premium products can have a clear quality issue with a specific product and not offer a recall.

Awesome Layout!

Submitted by Colorado Contractor - 10/30/2016

I am a General Contractor and Master Carpenter who has installed all manufactures 48" Refrigerators in my clients custom homes over the years. My wholesale supplier recommended the Kitchen Aid 48" Side by Side for my personal kitchen remodel. I am very glad she did as I find it to have more usable space than the Sub Zeros and GE's I've installed over the years. It is quite, efficient with well organized drawers and shelves, excellent lighting, and I love the location of the ice maker and the quantity of ice it produces. I am thrilled with this purchase. I hope it holds up to years of use.

Fabulous Refrigerator

Submitted by Suzanne - 10/14/2016

I bought this after lengthy research and much internal debate about whether to get a Sub Zero. I couldn't be happier. It provides all the refrigerator and freezer space I need. It is bight in the interior and everything is easy to find. The ice maker makes so much ice I doubt I could ever use it all. The look is great and something I didn't expect was the smudge proof surface. It is simple to keep spotless. A cloth comes with it and only water is required for cleaning, really. Be sure to know in advance that cleaning products can harm the finish. Oh, and the $4,000 savings from the Sub Zero isn't bad either.

Bought this to replace my jenn air built in. Hope this one lasts a bit longer then 7 years. Easy to install (was missing a small connecting piece for the water supply for the icemaker). Could have even have done it on my own! So far, week 2 and working well.

No water dispenser!

Submitted by DB97 - 7/5/2016

Recently bought a new home and this fridge was already in the house. I cannot fathom how a refrigerator at this price point does not have water dispensing inside the refrigerator side. I don't like that the ice doesn't dispense but I understand the desire for a clean look on the outside, but not having a water dispenser on the inside seems extremely short sighted. Competitors have them in much lower price points. So now I need to install a system into my sink to filter water. Very disappointing. Also, as others have mentioned, the unit makes a constant hissing sound that is surprising for this unit.

No, I do not recommend this product

Nice looking but whistles

Submitted by Tennisgirlathome - 6/3/2016

Too early to tell how this unit will perform. Nice looking outside. Lights inside seem duller and slower to click on from my GE? Icemaker makes ice quicly. My big issue is that after closing the freezer door, unit whistles. From what I Have read on line, this is normal? Anyhow, it is annoying and I am glad this unit is in my laundry room.

Just Lovely & Works Beautifully!

Submitted by Jeff - 12/11/2015

We bought this to replace a Jenn Air 48' built in that was a 2003 model - What an Upgrade! The exterior finish is just gorgeous and the handles match our stainless steel 48" gas stove - This refrigerator offers plenty of shelf & in the door storage space, including gallon storage, it has beautiful LED lighting on the side that illuminates the interior well, it has a beautiful temperature control panel, a filter for the ice maker which by the way has totally exceeded our expectations on the making of ice cubes - quickly makes ice, is quieter than most ice makers, and doesn't have that "off" taste - The freezer is spacious too. Keeps ice cream frozen solid! All around, we are delighted with this purchase!

Good as a Sub Zero?

Submitted by Bill - 11/10/2015

We had to replaces built-in SubZero. Opted for one without bells and whistles. Installation went well. Quiet so we barely hear it. Drawers work well. Doors open easily. We miss a egg rack that we had in the Sub Zero. So far, after three months, no problems it appears that we can find happiness in Kitchenaid after owning a SubZero.

Excellent features and look

Submitted by Cat, home chef - 11/7/2015

Waited 10 weeks for our first one to be delivered, yes first one. Within 24 hours it was obvious there was a problem with the refrigerator section. Kitchenaid were super helpful and efficient having a tech out the next morning who confirmed the control panel was malfunctioning. I was offered the repair which I declined as I felt a High end appliance should be brand new and functioning not repared. Kitchenaid delivered our second unit 4 weeks later and so far so good with a notable bonus that it is signifucantly quieter than the previous one too.

Significant Upgrade

Submitted by K - 11/3/2015

We bought this built in to replace our 19 year old KitchenAid built in and found the new unit to be more quiet, had significant improvements in its lighting and great door shelves/racks. We thought the ice bin is a little oversized but works greatly.
