Summary: The crisper drawers freeze. I have ruined countless heads of lettuce after having this repeatedly "fixed." The manufacaturer says its a "design flaw" I'll say! A TON of money for a fridge that I can't use 25% of the space in. Buy a sub zero.
Freezer set itself @ -10F/Refrigerator 59F; can't be reset

Summary: No--unreliable; Kitchen Aid built-in 42" stainless steel, $8000. At that price point, consider other brands w/ better reliability (e.g., SubZero) and which have individual compressors for refrigerator/freezer.
Pros: Layout of freezer (bottom), refrigerator (french doors, top) is excellent.
Cons: Poor reliablity, esp. for an $8000, top-of-the-line product. Ours broke down after 6 months.
Summary: I use all the special features ...each compartment and drawer. I like the convenience of the storage on the doors. There don't seem to be cold spots like my Viking Pro Series. l like the bottom freezer, the compartments and drawers really help. One suggestion for improvement is a filtered water dispenser, and perhaps one long drawer in the fridge for trays.
Pros: Attractive Design, Customizable Shelving, Energy Efficient, Holds Temperature Well, Multiple Climate Zones, Quiet, Space For Tall Items
