Benton Harbor’s KitchenAid Unveils Upgraded Refrigerator Line


KitchenAid in Benton Harbor has released a new line of built-in French door and bottom freezer refrigerators featuring advanced technology that maximizes food preservation and freshness, along with updated interior details.

“Built-in refrigerators bring a seamless, high-end aesthetic to the kitchen,” says Beth Robinson, senior manager for KitchenAid.

Robinson says the brand’s Preserva Food Care System is designed to control humidity and odors, is designed to extend the storage life of refrigerated and frozen foods. Two evaporators, meanwhile, provide separate cooling to the freezer and refrigerator compartments, keeping higher humidity air in the refrigerator to maintain fresh ingredients, and out of the freezer to minimize freezer burn.

Additional features include the smooth movement of crisper drawers, even when fully loaded, while the automatic icemaker provides filtration units to help reduce contaminants from tap water. In turn, LED lighting gradually increases light levels in both the refrigerator and freezer to provide a sharper view with fewer shadows.

Also, for the first time ever, the built-in French door refrigerator line will include a 36 inch model, offering an alternative to the brand’s 42 inch model.

Carrying a suggested retail price that ranges from $7,500 to $9,700, the new refrigerator collection is now available in a variety of sizes, styles, and finishes. Select models are Energy Star qualified.

Availability for the other products in the company’s new collection of major appliances will begin in April.
