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 fridge!!

We just love our side by side refrigerator, as we have always had a side by side. Love the lighting and is keeping the temperature accurately. SO happy we replaced our GE!!

Great lighting

Submitted by Bev. - 9/5/2017

I just bought this refrigerator to replace my other one (exact same model). It is stainless steel. I already do not like the finish. My old one was a flat silver color like my dishwasher (kitchen aid). This one has a slight swirl effect. Much harder to clean. It smudges and I cleaned it with stainless cleaner and micro fiber towels and rubbed with the grain. Which is what I was told to do. Not happy with the stainless. Why do they change things when they don't need to be. Now I am stuck with this.

Kitchenaid Not So Great Anymore

Submitted by SAM - 8/4/2017

I purchased this refrigerator less than two years ago. I believe this was a new model at the time. I have had 2 previous KitchenAid refrigerators 1993 and 2000 models. Both were still working, but we replaced the 1993 model thinking it could go out at any time. Early this year the ice maker quit working, but everything else worked properly. Since we didn't even use the ice the refrigerator make because it was so small we did not worry. We were thinking of moving in March and had the ice maker replace . It still did not make ice. After 4 calls for service, it was determined that the wiring in the door was faulty and the entire door needed to be replaced. I contacted KitchenAid and they said they would replace the door without any charge, but it would take 6 weeks for it to arrive here. It arrived at the appliance store where we purchased it and it was dented, so they contacted KitchenAid and they were sending another door which also arrived dented. We are still waiting for a door to arrive and not feeling real secure using the refrigerator with faulty wiring in the freezer door. What ever happened to KitchenAid quality?

Not designed well

Submitted by Zingara87 - 7/25/2017

We bought a model home and moved in April 25, 2017. The refrigerator had been in the house for probably 1-2 years but turned off. In June the ice maker stopped working. The repairman came out and told us that this refrigerator had a design flaw--the ice maker is in the freezer door and the water line comes up the hinge side of the freezer. The water line then freezes and the ice maker stops. He ordered us a new door but it appears the problem may develop again. He said you could empty the freezer; turn it off and hope that the water in the line melts, but this is unacceptable! Luckily the refrigerator is still under warranty. The door costs $888.00! I'll just buy something better next time. Also the inside storage of the refrigerator is limited, especially the crisper drawers--you have to take them out to put in large items such as a head of cauliflower.

No, I do not recommend this product

Stylish and functional

Submitted by Nursenicky - 7/20/2017

Sleek and stylish... love the wine rack inside. The front ice/water system is great. We love that the ice is stored in the door as opposed as taking up a shelf in the freezer.

A nice product with a couple design flaws

Submitted by Kim - 7/12/2017

I do love this fridge. And my food looks lovely inside and keeps for ages. I am not thrilled with the ice maker. I did see other reviews that it's noisy. But, for me it's also that my ice has ALWAYS got frost on it. No matter if I take the whole ice maker apart and dry it completely and then use up ice in a week. I don't have smooth ice cubes and I am ALL ABOUT THE ICE MAKER. That has been the one technical issue I have been dismayed about with this fridge. The other issue is the doors do not line up and neither do the handle bars they are just slightly off and I am particular about having things level or balanced so every time I look at the fridge I see that one thing. It bothers me and it looks wrong. Besides these two things everything else about the fridge is very nice. Beautifully laid out inside and the freezer is not an after thought as in other similar class fridges. It's just as nice as the refridgerator section. I love having the two drawers in the freezer. I keep my food in glass storage containers and it's just so easier to see everything at hand. This fridge is very deep. It is NOT counter depth so if you don't want extension then I strongly suggest buying the counter depth but you will probably lose square footage in storage. So decide what is more important for you a fridge that hangs out from counters a good 6" or sleek counter fronts.

Great price on "scratch & dent", brought cost within reason

Submitted by Mike - 6/16/2017

Overall, satisfied with features, performance and design. One key complaint. The design of the movable compartments in the door greatly limits their positioning. To get maximum use of space, we aren't able to put those compartments in the ideal location, as they "hit" or interfere with the shelves in the fridge.

Yes, I recommend this product

Fabulous Fridge

Submitted by Velina - 5/30/2017

We love our new refrigerator. The filtered water and crushed or cubed ice from the door are a big hit. Fruit and vegetables stay fresh much longer, eliminating the need to run to the store for green onion or celery, which had been continuously frozen and ruined in our old refrigerator. The visibility and lighting are good. The shelf and drawer design are conveniently set up. It's also very quiet.

Submitted by Speed Racer - 5/15/2017

We love how much room there is on the inside. The icemaker on the door is nice as well, it gives more room in the freezer. The bins for the door are deep so they will hold most anything. They measured fill feature is nice, but I wish that it had a pull out tray to set larger containers on while filling.

Submitted by kitchenaid lover - 5/10/2017

This is not my first or even second Kitchenaid fridge side by side. I love Kitchenaid products but the company has seriously dropped the ball on acceptable products. I bought the full line, matching set (4 items) and best item so far is the microwave. On this fridge, owned it for one month now and already had the ice maker replaced since it does not make ice to even fill up half the bucket (regardless if set on max ice or not). Also, the fridge could use another storage bin for the door. So even though my 4 year spare Whirlpool fridge had a better working ice maker and enough storage bins. I would not purchase this again. And if I could get my money back and choose again, I would continue to use my older Whirlpool fridge. From a disappointed previous Kitchenaid customer.

Excellent appliance only lacking extra interior space

This is an excellent working appliance however there are times when we go shopping and have o be fighting to allocate space to put all out groceries

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Ann W - 5/2/2017

I love this new fridge. It very pretty on the outside. I removed a rack on the inside that was there to hold bottles (wine? soft drinks?). The outside ice dispenser and water dispenser is very nice and does lots of different things. The only downside to the fridge part is the larger shelf space is at the top. Being a short female, I would prefer that the larger are is down lower. That would make it easier for me to handle heavy items like gallons of milk and watermelons, etc. The capability to move the shelves around is limited.

Wouldn't have bought the stainless steel if I knew . . .

Submitted by Ed - 4/21/2017

I bought this during the holidays to replace an older unit. It is absolutely awesome in every way BUT except that it beyond difficult to keep the front of clean. I.e. without fingerprints/smudges/etc. If I could do it again I would buy the same model but not in stainless steel. Without constant and I mean constant attention it quickly becomes an eye sore that must be attended to. My old unit was white non-stainless steel front and it was never this much of a problem.

cheap poorly made appliances that are about to be tossed...

Submitted by travis - 3/19/2017

Buyer Beware: purchased four Kitchen Aide appliances $6,000.00 10/2015.All were finished in Stainless Steel, bad choice.Water dispenser housing stained / eroded within a month, replaced by supplier twice within 6 months.400 days later...Surface looks very worn over both doors.Recommended SS cleaner + microfiber / zero help.Magnetic clips appear instantly as scratches Surface useless for any attachments Durability / fussiness factor is so poor that I have basically given up. If supplier could make the plastic any thinner or more brittle that would put rank this set up at the bottom of the list of essential utilitarian things to buy Two adults, well kept interior disappointed. KOCE500ESS (microwv) + KCGS356ESS (range) + KDFE104DSS (dw) + KRSF505ESS (frig) Update 3/19/2017 the freezer has now stopped working and ruined several layers of stored food, this product is an embarrassment.

I bought this refrigerator in early November, 2016 and it was delivered 12 days later. My wife and I are very tough customers when purchasing a refrigerator. We spent many hours going over all the features on many units from other companies but we finally narrowed it down to our Kitchen Aid. We are so pleased with the performance of the machine and the amount of space that we can use. We are also very pleased with the many features such as the changing of filters which are so simplified that we are still pinching ourselves for choosing this machine which has made our daily lives so much simpler and enjoyable.
