Comments about KitchenAid 21.9 Cu. Ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Black:
Bought this appliance about 2 months ago. It is similar but different to the one it is replacing. We like the Freezer in the bottom drawer. The French doors and shelves set up, allows one to open only part of the fridge rather than the opening up the whole unit. The Down side is the Deli Centre drawer goes across the bottom of the whole fridge and one has to open both doors to access it. Why couldn't it be split like the rest ot the shelves? We like the Convernsion program but it does not convert Canadian Imp. liquids to Metric. Only converts American liquids. The rest of the conversions are good. The ice making unit is a bit noisier than our older unit but we are getting used to it. Over all it is a nice addition to our kitchen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Water drains into freezer then onto floor
from Calgary, AB, Canada
A known design flaw in the drain gasket has caused us major hardwood floor damage. Very frustrated with the quality control from KitchenAid. I now have a new redesigned drain I have to install myself which is daunting due to our kitchen shape and where the fridge is. This is our second flawed KitchenAid appliance- our dishwasher had nylon upper rack brackets and wheels that would wear down due to heat and washing. I have replaced them twice with the same plastic parts and then found they came out with a metal design repalcement that fixed the issue. I am now scared to ever purchase any new KitchenAid appliance- I paid a premium price for a subpar designed product that should never have failed like this in the first place.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
love this fridge
By Mom of all trades
from Mitchell Ontario
Love my new KitchenAid fridge! This is my first bottom freezer and I am thrilled with not have to bend over to see what is on the bottom shelf. I love the longer meat keeper. It suits our needs much better, wished I had purchased this years ago
from Twin Cities, MN
Well built in USA. Has the features we wanted and none of the features we did not want. Perfect choice for us.Did not price foreign build comparable. Happy with price we paid.
Keeps Produce Fresh
from Bellingham, WA
Great design, functionality, and especially the drawers which keep vegetables, lettuce, etc. remarkably fresh for many days.

I have had this refirgerator for two years now, and love the styling, space and how easy it is to clean. Unfortunately the freezer is prone to constant freeze ups and once every 6 days I have to remove a slab of ice (see photo) from the bottom of the freezer to prevent it from dripping/leaking onto the floor. I attribute this to a design flaw in the manufacture of the refrigerator, and since it is no longer covered by warranty I have had to research a solution on my own.I have contacted Kitchenaid/Whirlpool on several occasions to see if they could provide a solution or even parts to corrct the issue, without resolve. I expect better quality from this brand.
like my refrigerator
from holt michigan
this is the best refrigerator I every got thank you
from Teaneck, NJ
The unit does a good job cooling and freezing food, but 4 times since purchase in 2010, the drain has clogged and ice and water have backed up in the freezer compartment and leaked onto the floor beneath the unit. It also is very loud cycling on and off. I have complained to the manufacturer in the beginning, but have given up anticipating any lasting remedy to the problem. Again, tomorrow I have the fifth repair for the same problem in 5 years.
from Gaylord, MI
This refrigerator is the perfect fit for my kitchen. Plenty of storage for my food and a nice wide deli drawer at the bottom, something rarely seen on a 33" wide model. All of the features that a French door refrigerator has with out all of the unnecessary bells and whistles. Plus, it's not an annoying French door fridge. Add the automatic ice maker and you have a fridge that's top of the line.
Would never buy again...
We've had this refrigerator for about 3 years -- this is my least favorite appliance, ever. The ice maker is less than ideal, the ice is always in a big clump (I think because of the design, every time you open the left door, room temperature air goes straight into the ice reservoir); the water dispenser couldn't dispense any slower. I find it rare to actually open one door unless I only need a gallon of milk. Just inconvenient, and if you only open the left door, it doesn't shut properly without opening the right door as well -- left has to shut first. With our family of 4, it amazes me how many times I find the door just partly ajar, and it isn't always the kids. It just doesn't shut like a normal refrigerator. Door design is odd as well, leaves dead space below lowest door shelf on each side. I personally just really dislike the french doors, but overall it's just a bad design. We had the ice build up on the bottom as well (and a ton of leaking before we finally realized someone wasn't spilling water), but fortunately bought the extended warranty -- I have realized that this is a huge problem with this age of Kitchenaids, would think that the company would step up and say they screwed up and replace that drain piece for anyone affected.
