      Perfect for me

      Comments about Kitchen-Aid 21.9 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Monochromatic Stainless Steel:

      I live alone, like to cook and don't eat meat. So the freezer size works just fine for my vegetarian needs, storing frozen veggies. I like everything about the functionality of the space, design and appearance.

      Bought it for my new house. Great internal design, very sleek and ergonomic. Bottom freezer access takes some time to get used to, but like design overall.

      Best Refrigerator I've Ever Had

      By DawnB

      from Canyon Country SW USA

      Comments about Kitchen-Aid 21.9 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Monochromatic Stainless Steel:

      I don't know why I was so resistant to the French Door fridge for so many years but I was. I think I didn't like the thought of the freezer on the bottom but now that I have it, I don't want anything else. You really don't have to bend down much like I thought I would and the baskets slide around. There is more room than I had in my old narrow side by side because the ice maker isn't taking up an entire shelf. The ice maker is smaller and we rarely use that feature anyway. The top part seems huge compared to my old one and my favorite thing is the water dispenser INSIDE! I love that because it is so much neater and I don't have to constantly clean drips from hard water on the outside door. The installers set the temperatures on everything when they put it in and I put my vegetable bins on high humidity and everything is working great. I've been using it about one month now. I will never go back to the old styles.

      The only issue we have found is that the divider between the doors sweats in our humid summer.Could use more insulation on it.

      Quiet, Efficient, Attractive

      By Nickerbocker

      Comments about Kitchen-Aid 21.9 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Monochromatic Stainless Steel:

      We have a relatively small kitchen and this model fits, while the french doors make access easier. Despite it's relatively compact dimensions, it's quite capacious. My wife and I have owned this fridge for 2.5 years and never filled up the fridge area completely. One feature that was important to us is the integrated water filter for the ice maker and interior filtered water dispenser. This one integrates a large plastic bottle of water in the fridge compartment behind the crisper drawers, ensuring that lots of cold water is available. It also has a filter life indicator that apparently measures actual water volume rather than just time. The owner's manual states, "The filter monitor system measures the amount of water that passes through the filter and alerts you to replace the filter." Although, it also says to replace the filter at least every 6 months. This model uses the Maytag UKF8001 PUR Refrigerator Water Filter. (KitchenAid is an upmarket brand of Whirlpool, which also owns Maytag.) I find that you have to hold your glass under the dispenser for a second after releasing the button as it tends to drip one or two drops of water. We don't find that a big deal. I like that it has digital controls and numeric temperature readout, so, for example, instead of setting the "coldness" to "3," I can set the temperature to 38degreesF. Plus, it tells me what the current temperature in the refrigerator and freezer compartments are at any given time. There is also a door alarm that beeps if you leave the door open for 5 minutes or more, and a temperature alarm that beeps and flashes the maximum temperature reached if the temperature in either compartment rises outside of the normal operating temperature range for an hour or more. The temperature alarm actually works following a power outage too, displaying the maximum temperature reached during the power outage once power is restored. There is a "Max Cool" button to more rapidly lower the fridge temperature. It's meant to be used when adding a large number of items to the fridge, or when adding warm items. It appears to work well. And there is a "Max Ice" button that more rapidly makes ice. I haven't yet had need to use that feature, though. It seems to me like this fridge has three sound levels--silent, fan running, and compressor+fan running. We like the fact that the refrigerator is magnetic despite being stainless steel, and the fact that it's assembled in the USA. So far the only draw backs that I find are: The center door seal panel (mounted on the smaller of the two fridge doors) collects moisture even in the relatively low humidity of Southern California. There is a "Humidity Control" button that activates an integrated heater to prevent moisture build-up, and it works effectively. Unfortunately, that means the fridge uses more power. Also, the full-width deli drawer can be accessed by lifting the cover if only the smaller of the two doors is open. But if only the larger of the two doors is open, the deli drawer cover is partly blocked by the door frame, so it will rub against it and does not open easily. And finally, it might have been nice for the water dispenser button to be located below the dispenser nozzle instead of above it, as this arrangement means you can't just push a cup into the button to dispense water, but must instead use one hand to hold the cup and the other to push the button. Also, you have to remember to hold the cup there a second or so after you release the cup as the dispenser drips one or two drops after the button is released. Overall, though, we've been very pleased with this unit.

      Great Features

      We bought this a couple of months ago and have no complaints so far. It is great size, good features and we love the French door style on the top with slide out freezer. We have yet to hook up the filter water system inside the door, but it seems like it will be a great addition once we do. I highly recommend this fridge.

      I'm so happy I decided to go with this refrigerator; I love it. It's spacious and my items are easily accessible. It runs quietly and the ice maker is excellent. The inside water dispenser is an added bonus and I haven't had any trouble with leaks.
