An Overview On KitchenAid Refrigerators

Getting the right refrigerator for your kitchen can make a world of difference to your energy bill and grocery bill. High-quality refrigerators from Kitchenaid keep your food fresh so that you don’t end up with limp produce and sour milk. Plus, they run efficiently so that you can manage your energy expenses well.

When deciding which Kitchenaid refrigerator to get for your home, first consider your specific needs. How much space does your family need to store food? A good rule to follow is between four to six cubic feet of refrigerator space for each person in your home. If you have five people in your family, then you’ll need a fridge that has a capacity of between 20 and 30 cubic feet, for example.

Also consider which features are important to you. For example, do you need a water and ice dispenser built into the door of the fridge? This makes it easy get cool drinks right away. Or do you want a fridge that is flexible in terms of storage so you can move shelves around as needed to accommodate large items? Fridges that have separate independent cooling systems enable you to have different temperature settings within your fridge to keep your food at just the right level.

DWYM Fun Fact

Make the most of your fridge space by organizing it efficiently. Keep similar foods together, such as greens in one drawer and fruits in another. If you have a lot of condiments, pickles and olives, consider adding a lazy Susan to one shelf so you can rotate it to find the right bottle without having to shift everything around. Dedicate a space on one shelf to put food that is soon to expire. This will help you remember to eat it first and reduce any food waste.

The KitchenAid Refrigerator Buying Guide

  • An important element to consider is the depth of the fridge. A standard depth refrigerator provides you with a lot of storage space. However, these are typically deeper than standard kitchen counters, so they tend to jut out more. If you want a more custom and smooth look to your kitchen design, opt for a counter-depth fridge.
  • The style of the Kitchenaid refrigerator you’re looking for depends on the space you have in your kitchen. Carefully measure your space to see whether you can accommodate a single-door or a French-door fridge. Some Kitchenaid refrigerators actually have five doors, with two fresh food doors, two soft-close pantry drawers and one bottom mount freezer drawer. This makes it easy to organize your foods and keep everything easily accessible.
  • Be sure to measure how much clearance you have when opening the fridge. If you have a kitchen island, for example, you’ll need to make sure there is still ample room to open the fridge doors and take out what you need without bumping into the island.
  • Consider the finish that will look best with your kitchen cabinets, counters, floor and other appliances. Kitchenaid refrigerators are available in multiple finishes depending on the model, including stainless steel, black stainless and white.
