Who are KitchenAid Refrigerators For?

The beauty and utility of KitchenAid’s refrigerators are sure to appeal to most consumers. That said, KitchenAid is a premium-level brand with mid- to high-end prices, and because KitchenAid offers such a wide variety of refrigerators, prices vary significantly between models. Most full-sized refrigerators fall within the $2,199 to $4,599 range. As far as standard-depth fridges go, KitchenAid bottom-freezer refrigerators start at $2,199; KitchenAid French door refrigerators start at $2,299; and KitchenAid side-by-side refrigerators start at $2,899. KitchenAid's next largest selection of refrigerators, built-in models, all vary between $7,999 and $11,199.

KitchenAid Refrigerator Reviews

As you would with any major investment, be sure to check out our KitchenAid refrigerator reviews. Here are a few considerations to make before you buy.

Cooling Tech

KitchenAid refrigerators with dual evaporators have separate cooling systems for the freezer and refrigerator compartments that help maintain ideal temperature and humidity in these two unique environments. Dual evaporators (as opposed to a single evaporator) result in: higher humidity levels in the fresh food section, which prolongs the freshness of produce, lower humidity levels in the frozen section, which prevents freezer burn, and the elimination of pungent smells traveling between sections.

Storage Capacity

While most KitchenAid full-sized refrigerators offer between 20 cubic feet and 26 cubic feet of storage space, there are 19-cubic-foot and 30-cubic-foot options for compact kitchens and large families, respectively. The most spacious refrigerators are side-by-side configurations followed closely by French door models; built-in and counter-depth options also maximize storage space, as they are often wider or taller than their standard-depth counterparts.

For reference, each adult needs approximately 4 to 6 cubic feet of refrigerator space. That said, industry experts assess that a typical family of four needs at least 20 cubic feet of capacity to house a healthy amount of groceries.
