KitchenAid’s KBSD608ESS Review
With intuitive controls, a sleek no-fingerprint finish, 48” Side by Side doors, water filter and ice maker, it’s easy to see why the KBSD608ESS is a favorite of 2016. As a built-in refrigerator, this grand model is loved by buyers with large kitchen spaces who need the large storage capacity to match.
This sizeable refrigerator features 3 adjustable spill-proof glass shelves, full-width door bins with gallon-holding capabilities, and temperature controlled drawers. There is almost an infinite amount of space for fruits, vegetables, meats, dairies, sodas, pastries, and every other item that needs refrigeration.
The freezer compartment features 5 adjustable shelves with a large ice cube storage container, making ice a readily available commodity for large family gatherings or parties. No need to send some unfortunate soul across town to pick up a bag of ice.
Boasting energy efficient LED lighting, there’s no strain on eyes trying to peer all the way into the back of the shelves. The KBSD608ESS also features easy adjustments of separate temperatures for both the refrigerator and freezer compartments.
This refrigerator also happens to be a quiet giant meaning there are no loud operational noises waking you up in the middle of the night. The ice cube and water dispenser is a bonus feature that many shoppers appreciate, which measures the exact number of ounces of deliciously filtered water being dispensed.
