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.

Clean lines but expensive

Nic 7/13/2017

I've been using this refrigerator for 2 months. It is sleek and beautiful and the finish is very nice. I wish it had a stainless cover for the base section as it shows and is ugly. It would be nice if the flip door closed smoother every time. The fridge is laid out well and holds more than I thought and makes things easy to find. The freezer, however, is difficult to fit very many items. Overall it's nice but I would've expected perfect for the price.

Best Alternative for Sub Zero Replacement

Uncle Fred 3/25/2017

Our built-in Sub Zero was approaching 32 years of age. I already had it re-built once, replacing the compressors and my appliance repair guy wouldn't guarantee another re-build would hold temperature. The freezer finally went and I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find a replacement. Unfortunately, what may come as a surprise to many, the cost to replace a built-in is double or triple the cost of a stand alone or cabinet depth refrigerator. My options were Subzero, JennAir, Thermador or Kitchen Aid. The Kitchen Aid was the only one that allowed me to fit the new refrigerator in my old built-in space without major renovations and it was the least expensive, almost $4,000 less than the Subzero. Only have had it for a week but it works beautifully. It has more refrigerator storage space than my old unit and the lighting and controls are simple and well engineered. Only complaint is the ice maker is a little noisy when refilling but it only lasts for a few seconds.

French Door Refrigerator with Platinum Interior

PJ 9/6/2016

We love the look of the refrigerator, love the lights and color in the inside. The only thing I would change, is when you open the right door, you can not slide out any of the drawers, you have to open both doors. It would have been nice to at least open one of the drawers instead of opening both doors to retrieve anything. Also, there is a panel on the left door that is between the two doors, it bangs when you open it and can be broken easily if not closed correctly. We put pads on the panel, so now it doesn't bang. If those two designs were corrected, it would be the perfect frig, but we love it anyway.

Perfect Replacement

AL the doer 7/1/2016

With new refrigerators being 5 inches deeper this is an easy replacement for an older refrigerator. This model fits right into the space where our old refrigerator was, no need to reconstruct the space, it's a seamless appearance. So far all is well. I do miss the shelf on the door of my old Kitchen Aid that had a cover for my buttter

Hate hate hate this fridge.

Ruth 4/25/2016

Bought this unit about 2 months ago and while operationally it seems fine, the fit and finish doesn't seem to be up to snuff on an extremely expensive unit. Seams are shoddily assembled. The doors don't close properly except by pushing somewhat hard. Would not recommend.

TT 9/16/2015

I purchased this new Refrigerator to replace the previous model lasted 12 years. There were 3 services for tiny leak in the last couple years. The only reason I have to replace it is because it was no replacement parts for the condenser. The exterior appearance and interior look really nice.
