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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
