The KSSO36QTX is a smaller version of the side by side models that come from the Kitchen Aid Architect Series but still comes packed with virtually the same useful features and energy efficiency, as seen in other models.

    Interior Features

  • The unit comes with various features to keep your food fresh.
  • The ExtendFresh Temperature Management system works with internal temperature monitors to determine if adjustments need to be made and makes changes accordingly.
  • The unit also comes with the FreshSeal Humidity Controlled Crisper, the FreshChill Temperature Controlled MeatPan and the ExtendFresh Ingredient Controlled Crisper, which helps you keep food ingredients fresh.
  • For keeping dairy products safe you have the FreshChill Dairy Compartment.
  • The KSSO36QTX comes with a number of practical storage options that makes organization really easy. These include the ClearVue Slide n' Lock Door Storage and the SatinGlide Freezer Baskets which float on roller bearings so that they can quietly slide in and out.
  • The slide n' lock mechanism is very convenient for storing beverages, soda cans and other food items.
  • Contrary to other side by side models, the unit sports full width freezer shelves which means that you can store wider items in the freezer.
  • The unit produces purified water with the Aquasense In-the-door ice dispensing system and water filtration. Get ice on the go with the factory-installed automatic ice maker.

      Exterior Features

  • The unit comes with customizable panels. The KSSO36QTX comes in a light wood finish and stainless silver handles.
  • There is an alternative choice of color with the Black Trim-Panel Ready Finish (KSSO36QTB)
  • The water dispenser is located on the left front panel right below the LCD temperature screen. The black base grills offer ample support as well as an added accent.

  • One of the main advantages of this unit is that it has full width freezers. Most side by side freezers tend to have very small freezer compartments because they are divided by a door.
  • The KSSO36QTX comes with customizable panels which means you can use any kind of panel that will suit the decor of your kitchen.
  • The KSSO36QTX allows you to place your items at eye level. The storage space is designed to make sure that no food can be forgotten at the back. This way you reduce the risk of having food go bad.


  • The unit tends to have smaller shelving spaces which are divided by a door. The spaces are high and narrow so you may have a problem storing larger items in the fridge.
  • There is no problem if you are storing frozen items since the freezer runs the whole width of the unit.
  • When it comes to noise the unit tends to become a bit noisy if it is running the ice and water dispenser.
