Sleek, modern

By OC resident

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

This refrigerator is smaller on the inside than most refrigerators but we were happy to sacrifice some space for a model that fits well into our smallish galley kitchen. Because it is counter depth, it opens up the kitchen and makes it feel less crowded than our old refrigerator. It is sleek, beautiful and easy to use. The ice maker is very quiet and efficient. I like all the compartments/drawers in the freezer and the long roll out drawer in the refrigerator.

Decent fridge, for the money these items should be alot better. Things could be better. Ice maker is slow and gasket around the door already torn for no reason. I have to call and get new one.

I'm Liking It!

By CiaoBella

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

First, let me say, my last refrigerator was a Thermador (built-in French door bottom freezer/matching cabinet doors) so it was seamless. My Kitchenaid Counter Depth French Door bottom freezer w/interior water dispenser is just as nice. Does it have the big $$$? No. Was it pricey? Yes. Pricey compared to a regular depth refrigerator - just because it was counter depth. Seems it should have been cheaper since it doesn't have the same cu.ft. that a regular depth refrigerator. Good location for the filter. Easy access. This was important to me since my Thermador Built-in was located at the bottom of the refrigerator behind the grill. Yes. You read this right. I HATED this feature. That's why when I purchased the Kitchenaid it was important where the filter was located because my husband is unable physically to help. Another feature I like about this refrigerator is that the bottom freezer drawer has three drawers (multi-level storage). However, if you have a big family it's going to be on the small side. It's a good size for two adults. I must say the shelving is deeper than my Thermador. I'm liking this frig. Noticed some buyers mentioning the SS. You have wipe the refrigerator with a stainless steel cleaner in the direction of the grain. I'm not having issues with SS cleaning. I will say that it is not the same high quality grain used on Thermador appliances. Thermador was great at easy clean up.

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

I love the interior water dispenser and having it on the inside allows room for more inside door store items. The refrigerator is extremely functional and beautiful.

Black Stainless is the best.

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

I really like the inside water feature and the space in the doors. I would like the shelves better if they went closer to the back of the fridge. Things can easily fall down the back.

Review is not from a sweepstakes, We bought this on purpose.

By JP X 2

from Chino Hills, CA

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

We've had this fridge installed for six months. I waited to post this review to give the unit and us, a chance to settle in. We did a lot of research prior to choosing this model and I will say we were swayed by the interior design of both the fridge and freezer sections. We wanted a french door unit specifically, but had one criteria; the freezer section had to be able to store a frozen pizza box. We also wanted water and ice, but did not want the bulky in door port to deal with.

This unit met both of the requirements. The inside water dispenser is great! As other reviewers have mentioned, it does tend to drip once after it shuts off, but it isn't the drama others have also posted. Just simply wait a couple seconds and done.

The freezer design is fantastic for the space. The separate drawers handle at least two frozen pizzas and the upper drawer keeps ice cream containers and plenty else. I like it.

Many have posted about the inner shelves in the fridge not reaching the back wall. This is a design necessity for the cooling air, which comes from the top, to travel down the back wall... it is a bit of an inconvenience, but again, we have learned to live with it.

Finally, the door system. As others have posted, the right door has the sealing bar which needs to lock into the body to create a sealing surface for the left door. It does work on its own, but it is much easier to just open the left door a little bit, close the right door and then close the left. Its not a big deal. For those who posted about the right door not closing, or not lining up, I would advise to have the installation checked to ensure the fridge is level and square. Unlike a traditional single door, the nature of the double door units require them to be both level and square.

Overall, if you're the type who gets all wound up and minor inconveniences cause you to lose sleep, you may want to look at a traditional single door unit. Personally, I like the look and functionality of the unit.

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

I have had 2 other kitchen aid refrigerators and they have been great. I did experience the hot middle bar on a previous model.
The bottom freezer has been great- I like that fresh food is eye level and easier to store wide items. The interior water has been fine-(i was concerned that this would be annoying) but I like the clean look of the fridge

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

I think the shelves should have more moveable options. The doors easily pop open after you shut them. Don't like the way the drawers on the bins open. Always want to pull it the wrong way

My hardwood floor hates this refrigerator!

By Ramona Warren

from Ocean Shores, Washington

Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 CuFt Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator:

I do like this frig. It is quiet. I love the way it looks and functions in my new kitchen. However, as part of the remodel, we installed hardwood floors throughout the house. These are real hardwood floors not laminate. The long and the short of it is the nylon wheels come from a two piece mold, which leaves a standing seam or ridge right in the middle of the wheel. There are now grooves cut into the floor just by rolling it in and out to hook up the ice maker. Forget ever being able to pull it out to clean. I'm shopping for a rug to the cover the damaged floor. You may have the same problem with a vinyl floor. Really?!?!? Could you spend another dollar or so to get a better manufactured wheel?
