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.

Well arranged for efficient access and use.

I am so pleased with the appliances. The Black Steel is beautiful and appliances are quiet as well as beautiful

Yes, I recommend this product

Very nice appliance with some caveats.

Submitted by Shellyf - 7/24/2017

This refrigerator has a lot of room for all your items. Lots of shelf space on the doors and the shelves. Several drawers allow segregating various meats, cheeses, fruits, etc. The freezer, too, has ample space for most needs. The ice drawer is quite large and is needed in our family of 5. Instructions about installing the air filter are completely wrong. There is no such place along the back wall on the ceiling on which to snap the filter. I just put it on a shelf. Note: we purchased the model in which we put in custom panels. There are no handles that come with this model. They are $270 extra when purchased from KitchenAide and possibly more if you go to a specialty store to find handles that match the knob decor in your kitchen. To change the water filter, one must lie down completely on your stomach and look under the freezer to find where it goes. A major inconvenience!!! I'd advise purchasing the warranty directly from KitchenAide which was much cheaper than the price offered by the appliance store.

Does the job

Submitted by Shellyf - 7/18/2017

We have been using this model for about 3 weeks now and it is working just fine. The layout of the interior makes storing things easy. The way it maintains the cold temperature constantly is very helpful, especially in keeping things fresh and usable. The ice maker started slowly but now that bin is filled completely. It is also much easier to find things. I recommend getting your warranty from Kitchenaid rather than the sales vendor. One caveat: to get to the water filter, you must fully lie face down on the floor as it is under the freezer compartment. Thankfully you only have to do it twice a year.

24.2 Cu. Ft. 42" Width Built-In Panel Ready French Door Refr

Nice fridge. Don't like that you have to open both doors in order to access the inside drawers. Did not realize that the handles don't come with the fridge.

Fits nicely, very quiet

Submitted by perpetual remodel - 10/15/2016

I actually have a stainless steel built in, not panel ready. I now wish I had gone with the panel ready, as the stainless is not fingerprint proof... it looks messy all the time. It holds so much more than my old side by side, Its very quiet, even when the compressor is running. I did buy the extended warranty as every repairman and or installers who has been to my house since buying a new set of kitchen appliances, said to get the warranty... Kitchenaid and others don't seem to hold up well. So far 2 out of 3 appliances needed service right out of the box, but not the refrigerator. The ice drawer is not convenient, and has no easy shut off like my SubZero. Wish I had gotten ice and water in the door now... It's a pain to get to the ice.

Very Satisfactory

Submitted by Bamboo Panels - 8/31/2016

The 24.2 Cu. Ft. 42" Width Built-In Panel Ready we installed performs exactly as advertised. It is quiet, the doors work well ( even with heavy panels) and the interior design of the shelves are very functional. Ice maker works very well. We were able to design the cabinets to accommodate a flush installation and allow the full 135 deg door opening that allows the door to stay open. Interestingly, the shallow 24" depth that seemed like a limitation is in practice more convenient because of improved access to the back. The white interior is fine.

Yes, I recommend this product

Not "built-in"; for the money it should be.

Submitted by Tripp Knightly - 6/26/2016

KitchenAid I think it's misleading, bordering on deceptive, to call this product "built-in" or even "counter depth" for that matter. The hinges don't articulate like you might expect on a top-of-the-line model and as such you've designed it to protrude beyond the run of cabinets, beyond even the counter. Hast to be like that to allow the doors to open in its present design. Many of us buy this product, having seen so many pictures of truly-built-in refrigerators only to be stuck with the product and an imperfect kitchen. It's interesting that you don't have any pictures of this product in actual installations from the side. You've been in business for how long and you still can't get this basic thing right?? Anybody, you can Google for images, but I have attached one here. We built our entire cabinets following KitchenAid's own dimensional specifications. You can see the result. Looks like it was poorly planned, thanks to KitchenAid. I do have bigger fish to fry. Which is what angers me about having to deal with this.

No, I do not recommend this product

great fridge/freezer combo
