KitchenAid KBFS20EVWH Refrigerator Review
19.7 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator with a White Sateen Finish
OVERALL: The Kitchenaid KBFS20EVWH French Door Refrigerator is the full size version of the Kitchenaid KBFS20ETWH French Door Refrigerator which was recently discontinued.
PROS: The Kitchenaid KBFS20EVWH French Door Refrigerator is an ENERGY STAR® Qualified model, which saves not only on its toll on the environment, but also saves you money.
A few features we found worth mentioning and highlighting were...
- The FreshChill temperature management system is the envy of many refrigerator manufacturers as it maintains a constant temperature in the inside to a tenth of a degree.
- This refrigerator still has the impressive Architect® Series II Handles which give a nice boost to just about any existing kitchen decor
- Although this unit is no longer cabinet depth, it still has a smooth, modern look.
- The TWO pull out freezer baskets make organizing the freezer and accessing the items within the freezer that much easier.
- The FreshSeal Humidity drawers had such a tight seal around the rim that it would most definitely add life to your produce, meats and cheeses. Very well designed.
CONS: It's hard not to compare this unit to its predecessor which we feel had some benefits that this model lacks:
- No Slide Out Shelves: For whatever reason, they removed the slide out shelves from this model that were in the counter depth version. Definitely something we missed.
- No Cantilever Shelves: Again, not understanding why they removed the cantilever shelving units from the KBFS20EVWH French Door Refrigerator, but they're no longer on this unit.
MSRP: The KBFS20EVWH is priced at $1699.99 which is about $500 LESS than its predecessor. This might explain why they chose to remove a few of the above-referenced features. That said, this is still a great value, considering it's a Kitchenaid refrigerator for under $2,000!
