About - KitchenAid KBFO42FT[ ]

The KitchenAid KBFO42FT[ ] is a built in refrigerator available from KitchenAid. The KBFO42FT[ ] typically costs $6800 .

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on built in refrigerator models like the KBFO42FT[ ].

Claimed capacity (cu. ft.):
Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.

These put frequently used items at eye level. Fairly wide refrigerator shelves provide easy access. Though you must bend to locate items in the freezer, even with models featuring a pull-out basket, you will probably do less bending overall because the refrigeration compartment is at eye level.

French-door style:
French door models are bottom-freezer refrigerators whose upper compartments have two narrow doors that open similarly to the doors of a side-by-side refrigerator. These narrower doors use less space in front of the refrigerator when opened, and allow access to either or both sides of the full-width fresh-food compartment. Typically more expensive, French-door models are usually 36 inches wide, though some newer models are 33 inches wide.
