The KSSC36FTS is another Architect Series II offering from KitchenAid that is a good mix of style, functionality, and energy efficiency all integrated into one. This non-dispensing unit comes in a stylish stainless steel exterior.

    Interior Features

  • The KSSC36FTS sports a number of features that are designed to keep food fresher for longer. These include ExtendFresh Plus Temperature Management System that ensures that ingredients remain fresh for maximum taste and texture.
  • Compartments and bins are designed to keep freshness in. These include the FreshSeal Dairy Compartment, which is designed for dairy products, and the FreshChill Temperature Controlled Meat Pan.
  • The ExtendFresh Ingredient Care Center is also another feature that is designed to keep your ingredients in top condition. This is helped by the Dual Magna Seal Gasket system that creates a tight immediate seal that locks cold air inside to ensure that the food remains fresh.

  • Enjoy fresh and clean water with thet PuR PushButton Fast Flow Water Filter which cleanses your water, making it perfectly safe drinking through the AquaSense Base Grille Filtration system.
  • Organize with ease with the number of shelving options and bins that are available to you. These include the ClearVue bins that allow you to look at the stores from outside without having to open them, the SatinGlide ice storage drawer and the Satin Glide refrigerator pans.
  • The pans and baskets that utilize the SatinGlide system are placed on movable roller bearings so that they can be easily pushed in and out without any noise.

      Exterior Features

  • Stainless steel exteriors, clean lines and rounded handles give this unit a modern and sophisticated look.
  • The black base grills on the bottom give a slight accent while keeping the entire unit off the floor.

  • One of the main advantages of this unit is the number of the shelves and bins that you have for easy organization. This way there is less risk of cluttering up the inside of the unit.
  • The unit is very quiet, virtually noiseless even if the water filtration system, which often makes the biggest noise in other models, is on.
  • The adjustable glass shelves are really useful if you want to have more space for taller items inside.
  • The high and narrow shelving spaces are great for keeping items all visible from the front. This way no item gets buried behind where they can't be seen.


  • One of the main disadvantages of this unit is that it is too bulky and may not be the best choice for those with very small kitchens.
  • The unit's high and narrow shelving, due to the side by side design, means that you cannot easily store very wide items.
  • The large capacity of this unit means that you will consume more power compared to other units. It is also more expensive compared to stacked refrigerators.
