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. 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.

Nothing is Perfect but this fridge is close...

Jon 6/13/2017

I've had this fridge for a month. While built ins are insanely more expensive than regular refrigerators, they do look better in high end kitchens. This Kitchenaid model was actually quite reasonable compared to it's peers in the marketplace and one of the reasons it is the preferred built in for high end homes in the Houston area. Other reasons I chose it include the great Layout and Design, the LED lighting, and the very large and well designed Ice Maker system. My only issue, and it's a minor one, is that the container at the top of the door needs a lip to keep the butter inside when opening it's swing up door/cover. Other than that, I'd give it a five star and recommend it to friends.

It's Like Opening The Keys to The City!

slklutz 5/31/2017

My 18 year old builder's depth, side-by-side died a loud, painful death, and with very specific measurements, I was limited to 2 brands. Once my wonderful Builder's Appliance store came to measure officially, this was the only one that fit. Now that I've had it a month, every time I open it, with its beautiful lighting, superior designed shelving, quiet operation, and incredible ice production, I am so happy that this WAS "the one!" I look inside, and feel as though I have entered someone else's refrigerator. There is so much space, that my food left two empty shelves! Not only that, it looks so regal in the lighting! I almost don't want to touch it! It's a work of art! Simply beautiful! I love the separate paddles for water and ice, and I can finally slant a tall cup, and fill it, and see how many ounces I'm getting. I could go on, but let's leave something for your brochure!

17 years and going strong

Victor 2/13/2017

We have the 42" Superba bought in 2000, and it has worked well for us. We had one repair that was covered by the (generous) warranty, and the refrigerator has worked well. We replaced a slide out drawer whose track wheel broke off but otherwise all is fine. We will definitely consider another KitchenAid when the time comes to replace our unit.

Ambivalent

Linda 12/16/2016

I replaced a 21 year old comparable built-in KitchenAid with this model and am disappointed in some of the changes. The LED lighting in the new model is fabulous! I think the shelving on the freezer side is an improvement and like it a lot, but not on the refrigerator side. The smaller open bins on the door need to be an inch deeper to be able to fit two rows of products like my old model did. My old model also had lift up lids on the crisper drawers for convenient grabbing of a single item (so you didn't have to pull the drawer out) and that's been eliminated. I miss that feature, but the trade-off is that the drawers probably hold more. But I'm really having a problem with the drop down utility compartment (what we used to call the butter compartment) on the door. It's very poorly designed and is difficult to grab onto to get it open--yet, strangely, it sometimes opens all by itself when we pull open the refrigerator door and sticks of butter or cream cheese fall out onto the floor! Really??? This needs to be addressed by KitchenAid and these bins should be replaced! When I've spent almost $10,000 on a refrigerator, I don't expect to have such a ridiculous problem. I'm about to resort to taping it shut, which I'm sure will make guests question whether they should buy a KitchenAid appliance. Step up, KitchenAid, and figure this out. I would recommend this refrigerator to a friend if this problem was fixed, but not until then.

No, I do not recommend this product

Sleek and beautiful

Camille 12/14/2016

We have had our new Kitchen Aid refrigerator for a little over a month and I love it. The lighting inside is very bright and the shelves are glass and easy to clean . The ice maker is perfect and I don't miss my old Kitchen Aid as much as I thought I would.

We have only had our new frig for a short time, but so far we are thrilled. Love the ice and water in the door with the auto light feature. A very handsome unit with tons of storage room.
