      The unit sports high and narrow shelves that allow you to store items one on top of the other instead of one behind the other.
    • The unit looks really good with its stainless steel finish and its sculpted handles.
    • Food is kept fresh and tasty even after a week of storage. You can change the temperature settings for each compartment.
    • With the advanced gasket system and the option to open one door at a time, you get to save a lot on power.
    • The full width crisper type is one of the advantages of this unit. It allows you to keep as many fruits and vegetables as you want and still keep them fresh.


    • The lack of the dispensing feature is one of the drawbacks to this unit since there are units from KitchenAid of the same size with dispensers.
    • T he side by side style of this unit means that you have more compartments that are high and narrow so it is very hard to store wide and large items inside.
